Justin Bieber is further explaining why he won’t take pictures with fans who approach him in public any longer.
The 22-year-old singer responded to a fan’s comment on Instagram with a lengthy explanation. He says that with technology these days, being a celebrity is much different than in years past when fans didn’t have cameras on them at all times.
“Years ago it was impossible to even take a picture at anytime not everyone was accessible to a camera now everyone has a camera phone and Now it’s just a different thing. If you think setting boundaries is being a douche I’m the biggest douche around but I think it’s smart and will be the only way I last,” Justin said.
“I wanna enjoy life and not be a slave to the world and their demands of what they think I need to do!! I love the fact that I am able to make people happy but cmon if you truly were in my position you would understand how tiring it is (boo hoo Justin get over it) I’m going to keep making decisions I feel are fit for my growth and no human being will make me feel bad for it,” he added.
New details have been revealed about what happened right before Justin made the announcement on Tuesday evening (May 10). The singer was enjoying an afternoon with a friend playing pool at Lucky Strike Lanes in Boston when a family demanded he take a photo with them.
“It was toward the end of their last game that a family, also at the venue, began trying to get to Justin, acting like they were looking for the bathroom and eventually confronting him and demanding photos, implying they were owed a photo because they had bought Justin‘s albums,” a rep for the venue told JustJared.com.
