Pop star Justin Bieber has cancelled his meet and greets after his shows following a security scare at a recent gig in Los Angeles.
The 21-year-old “What Do You Mean?” hitmaker may have only just kicked off his Purpose World Tour but he’s already decided to axe his intimate backstage experience, which cost USD 925 a pop, because they make him feel “drained and unhappy,” reported Female First.
Taking to his Instagram account, he wrote, “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 (sic).”
Although he’s claimed pulling the plug on his meet and greets was down to him feeling depressed, it’s believed the pop star made the call after a security scare at his gig at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Monday when a fan got within 10 feet of him.
