Fans hoping to get up and close and personal with Justin Bieber when he visits Scotland for a triple-whammy of gigs at The Hydro in October can forget it – the teen idol has cancelled all his meet-and-greets after a “security incident” on his current tour.
The Sorry hitmaker is only eight dates into his Purpose World Tour, but he now says he won’t be meeting any more Beliebers.
Writing on Instagram, the 22-year-old Canadian singer said: “I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling drained and filled with so much of other people’s spiritual energy that I end up unhappy.”
Bieber’s management team says the incident caused them to rethink plans before and after gigs.
The Bieb continued: “I want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense.”
Bieber has 56 more dates in North America before heading across the Atlantic to play at V Festival in August.
He’ll then head to Europe for another 48 concerts, including those three gigs in Scotland in October.
He was at the 1OAK nightclub in Hollywood to give an impromptu performance in between shows.
In the video he appears to be heard saying: “I think people hate on people who are themselves, you know?
“Maybe I’m drunk or maybe I’m just speaking real [stuff], but I feel like a lot of the reason why there’s so many people that hate on me is ’cause I’m just myself.
“You know, you can hate on me for being myself, too, but… if you just are yourself and are OK with just being yourself and making spontaneous decisions and just, like, wearing whatever you want to wear and doing whatever you want to do…
“We’re going to make bad decisions sometimes, but we ultimately want to make good decisions.
“So let’s try to make the best decisions as we possibly know how to give and have a good night.”
