As for the people who supported him financially by buying his music, Bieber doesn’t think that gives them a right to demand his photos.
“People who say ‘but I bought ur album’ know that you got my album and you got what you paid for AN ALBUM! It doesn’t say in fine print whenever you see me you also get a photo,” he wrote.
A fan with the Instagram handle “braekess” responded to Bieber’s post by saying, “You’re such a prick. Your fans are the reason you are as successful as you are. The least you could do is take pictures with them. I’m sure it’s annoying not being able to live a ‘normal’ life, but ‘normal’ isn’t what you signed up for. Get over it and stop being a douche.”
Bieber fired back at the comment, saying “If you think setting boundaries is being a douche I’m the biggest douche around but I think it’s smart and will be the only way I last.” He continued, “I’m going to keep making decisions I feel are fit for my growth and no human being will make me feel bad for it.”

Sounds like an odd moment of clarity for the guy who was caught feeding squirrels barefoot in a park earlier this week.
