Justin Bieber wants to be a man of the people.
But the singer says he simply can't do it any longer.
Bieber announced on Instagram yesterday that he has canceled all future meet-and-greets with fans, explaining why he's doing away with introductions that typically cost $2,000 for those who want to hang with the artist.
"I enjoy meeting such incredible people," Justin wrote. "But I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people's spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy."
We'd tell Bieber to simply not absorb so much spiritual energy from his supporters at these events, but we know that's difficult.
Here's the unfair part, however:
Anyone who has already purchased these meet-and-greet packages will only be given refunds if they forfeit their tickets in exchange.
"Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression," Bieber continued in his post.
"The pressure of meeting people's expectations of what I'm supposed to be is so much for me to handle and a lot on my shoulders."
Justin, dude. All you need to do is sign an autograph and pose for a photo.
We know you need lots of energy to win back Selena Gomez. But come on.
Multiple outlets, however, do confirm that a security scare of some type on Monday evening also contributed to Bieber's change.
The beloved solo artist has 114 shows remaining on his Purpose world tour. The next concert is scheduled to take place on March 25 in Las Vegas.
"Never want to disappoint but I feel I would rather give you guys the show and my albums as promised," Bieber concluded.
"Can't tell you how sorry I am, and wish it wasn't so hard on me.. And I want to stay in the healthy mindset I'm in to give you the best show you have ever seen."
