How Meeting Fans Caused Justin Bieber’s Serious Mental Illness

By  | 

Justin Bieber has made a lot of questionable decisions during his time in the spotlight, many of which can be criticized from every angle. But although the “Company” singer has pissed a lot of people off with his latest move, this time no one has the right to say anything.

The 22 year old broke hearts of thousands of Beliebers last night when he announced that he will be cancelling all upcoming Purpose Tour meet and greets. And while this decision would probably be something the blond crooner would get TONS of s*it for in the past, his reasoning is completely understandable and actually pretty heartbreaking. He explained his decision on Instagram:

“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.”

Mental illness is unfortunately a struggle many stars deal with, and it’s not something to take lightly. But even though JB was honest about the anxiety and depression he’s been dealing with, some fans still didn’t accept his choice to cancel M&Gs.

Others, however, stood behind their fave and supported his decision.

We hope Justin gets the help he needs and continues touring in the best mental state possible.
