Singer calls for respect from fans in a series of Snapchat videos
Justin Bieber has sent a series of Snapchat videos to fans directing them on how to behave when asking for photos with the star.
Bieber – who recently topped the UK Singles Chart for the second week running – is currently in Australia, taking time to tell fans what he expects fom them.
He said: “The way you ask or approach me when you want a photo with me is going determine if I take a photo or not.”
In the Snapchat clips, Bieber continued: “If I’m walking somewhere or arriving somewhere and you guys are asking me to take a photo, if I don’t respond, if I continue to keep walking, the likelihood is that I probably don’t want to take a photo at that moment.
“If you start screaming louder that’s not going to make me want to take a photo more.”
The singer added: “I can’t enjoy it if I’m not feeling there’s any respect given to me that moment. Usually the chances are I’ll take a photo but if perhaps I don’t, or I’m not in the mood to take a photo that moment, please just respect me and just treat me the way you want to be treated.
“Honestly I’d rather stand there and talk to you for five minutes and not take any photos… just have that moment without the chaos. 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 you could tell people about it?”
