#NoPhotos. Justin Bieber won’t pose with you for your selfies anymore. The “Sorry” singer, 22, shared an unapologetic Instagram post on Tuesday, May 10, informing his fans he’s over feeling like a caged beast.

“If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I’m not gonna take a picture. I’m done taking pictures. It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human, I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna be able to keep my sanity,” his post — which he deleted and then reposted — read. “I realize people will be disappointed but I don’t owe anybody a picture. and 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. Justin Bieber.”

The “Love Yourself” singer, who was spotted on Tuesday walking around Boston without shoes on, previously called off fan meet-and-greets, claiming they aren’t good for his health.

“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,” Bieber explained of his decision via Instagram in March. “[I] 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. … 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,” he concluded.

So from the sound of things, you best frame your old snaps with the Biebs because no one’s getting any new pictures with him.
