Yesterday, Justin Bieber announced that he will not be doing any more ‘meet and greets’ during his Purpose World Tour.
The news was announced via an Instagram post, which read:
‘I enjoy meeting such incredible people…but I leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression.”
In the post, Bieber also says, ”I want to stay in a healthy mindset…to give to you the best show you have ever seen.”
Bieber fans who were eagerly waiting to meet him during the tour were left disappointed by the news. The news also sparked an outcry on Twitter, with many fans upset, annoyed, or downright pissed off. That includes fans that had already paid to meet Bieber.
The abrupt cancellation of the ‘meet and greets’ and the talk of being ‘depressed’ could be shedding light on Bieber’s mental well-being. But this isn’t the first time that Bieber has displayed erratic behavior: last year at the VMAs, Bieber broke down into tears after his performance, noting that he felt pressure from the audience and a sense of being ‘judged’.
He certainly doesn’t look happy in the Instagram post picture.
Is this the start of a bigger breakdown?
