Justin Bieber is feeling down. The celebrity superstar announced on his Instagram account that there will be no more meet-and-greets on his Purpose world tour. The tour, which still has 50 stops to go, has apparently taken its toll on the young singer, who apologized to his devoted fans for cancelling the limited VIP packages. Those packages, which ranged from $975 to $2,000, enabled Beliebers to meet and take pictures with Justin.
Bieber said that he enjoys meeting his fans, but confessed that it leaves him ‘feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people’s spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy.’ He even said that these events exhaust him ‘to the point of depression.’ Bieber added that the pressure is just too much for him to handle, stressing that he hates to disappoint his fans. However, he believes that giving them the best show ever is more important than attending meet-and-greets.
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 😉
Bkstg, the company who offered these VIP packages, said they would give everyone refunds and offered a slightly different package, which allows fans to take pics and videos of Biebs at a hospitality lounge. Though Beliebers were obviously disappointed by the news, they took to social media to support the musician via the hashtag, #WeAreHereForYouJustin.
Here are some of their tweets:
Was Justin even 100% ready for this tour? 😞 I mean, Believe Tour really broke him down…

I don’t think Justin is actually ready to start touring. This is too much for him and its clearly taking a toll on him. He needs rest.
