22-year old superstar Justin Bieber shared a photo on Instagram on Tuesday of him hugging a young fan at one of his meet and greet events, and dropped the news of him not doing that anymore.
The Canadian, who just started his Purpose Tour said in the post that the meet and greets which cost fans between $900 and $2000 leave him “spiritually drained.” He added that can no longer handle the pressure of meeting people’s expectations of what he’s supposed to be.
The singer concluded by saying he needs to be in a “healthy mindset” to give fans the best shows ever.

Love u guys.. I’m going to be canceling my meet and greets. I enjoy meeting such incredible people 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.. 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 .. 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. Never want to disappoint but I feel I would rather give you guys the show and my albums as promised. 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 😉
