Next time you see Justin Bieber, how about you just take a selfie on your own and fuck off?

Having recently decided that meeting fans before shows, even if they’ve paid for the privilege, is far too much effort, Justin Bieber has now announced that he won’t be having his photo taken with people who see him out and about either. It’s because he’s so nice. God he’s nice. What a guy.

To be fair, having people come up and ask for photos all the time must be a bit of a pain in the arse, even if you’re a normal celebrity, rather than the actual messiah, like JB.

As you’ll remember, earlier this year Bieber cancelled all upcoming meet-and-greet sessions, saying that they made him feel “so drained and filled with so much of other people’s spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy”.

Even worse, random street photos make him feel like “a zoo animal”. Which at least would ensure him an invite to parties his dad organises.

Wrote the Biebster in a recent Instagram post: “If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I’m not gonna take a picture. I’m done taking pictures. It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognise me as a human. I feel like a zoo animal and I wanna be able to keep my sanity”.

“I realise people will be disappointed but I don’t owe anybody a picture”, he added. “And people who say, ‘But I bought your album’, know that you got an album and you got what you paid for: AN ALBUM! It doesn’t say in fine print, ‘When you see me you also get a photo'”.

Well, while we all go and check the fine print on all of our Justin Bieber CDs, we should probably respect his wishes. Those rumours that this move is actually Bieber trying to hide the fact that, since becoming the messiah, he no longer appears in photographs would be ridiculous if they actually existed. I mean, I’ve seen loads of pictures of Jesus.

It may or may not be worth mentioning that Bieber’s fan photo ban came a day after he was snapped in a Boston park feeding a squirrel and wandering around barefoot.
