Pop star Justin Bieber has posted a video rant online about his fans “disrespecting” him when he arrived at the Melbourne Airport.
Upon his arrival, Bieber posted a tweet thanking his fans.
According to the Herald Sun, the Canadian singer and songwriter “spent the day touring Melbourne after getting off the plane from Los Angeles.” Despite having security guards around him, he welcomed his fans.
“Bieber dutifully posed for photos and gave high fives, but was unimpressed with his reception at Melbourne airport and left feeling harassed,” as reported by The Sydney Morning Herald.
In a Snapchat video, Bieber expressed what he felt about his Australian fans.
Bieber was in his car when he recorded the video.
“The way you ask or approach me when you want a photo with me is going determine if I take a photo or not.
“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 take a photo more.
“I want to enjoy the moment like you’re enjoying the moment but 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,” Bieber expressed.
The pop star even admitted that he would rather have a talk with his fans than have photos taken. Moreover, he said, “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.”
Bieber is in Australia for the second time as part of his promotional tour of his latest record-breaking single, “What Do You Mean.”
He is expected to perform at “X Factor Australia” tomorrow.
