Is the line between idol and human being ever blurred? Often, yes, but how we treat them in spite of it can make all the difference. A Snapchat video sees Justin Bieber talking about fans and their over-eagerness to take photos.
He begins: “The way that you ask or approach me when you want a photo with me is gonna 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“.
Other tips are, “If you start screaming louder that’s not going to make me take a photo more. Asking kindly, then chances are I’ll take a photo. 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“.
