Canadian pop star Justin Bieber has uploaded a series of videos lecturing his fans about how to approach him and demanding respect after he landed in Melbourne for a brief Australian tour.
The 21-year-old singer ranted at his fans through the video sharing app Snapchat, as he was chauffeured through the streets of Melbourne, saying their behaviour will determine whether or not they get a photo with the superstar.
“If I’m walking somewhere or arriving somewhere and you guys are asking to take a photo, if I don’t respond, if I continue just walking, the likelihood is probably that I don’t want to take a photo at that moment,” Bieber said.
“Now if you start screaming louder, that’s not going to make me want to take a photo more.
“I want to enjoy the moment just as you’re enjoying the moment but I can’t enjoy it if I’m not feeling like there’s any respect given to me at that moment.”
Bieber hinted at his generosity saying he will take a photo most of the time but if he is not in the right mood he begged fans to “please just respect me and just treat me the way you would want to be treated”.
“That’s all, I just want us to be on the same page.”
The notorious bad boy indicated the “moment” is much more important to him and questioned his fans’ motives in coming to see him.
“Honestly, I’d rather stand there and talk to you for five minutes and not take any photos and us be able to have that moment rather than just chaos,” he said.
“It’s like, why did you travel to see me in the first place? Was it really to see me or was it to get that moment of you seeing me so that you could tell people about it?”
Bieber concluded his lesson by reminding fans: “I’m not unreachable, I’m not unattainable, I’m just like you and I communicate just like you.”
In 2013, the singer received major backlash when he graffitied the wall of a hotel on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
Bieber and his entourage spray-painted a wall at the QT Hotel in Surfers Paradise, leaving spray cans behind, after he performed in Brisbane.
