Justin Bieber has long since become synonymous with pop music worldwide. He started at an early age, after being discovered by Usher on YouTube. And needless to say, his fandom grew to new heights.
Despite being the center of controversy and other issues over the years, in recent times, Justin Bieber has turned his life around, and in essence, grew up. However, despite his calm and composing mannerism and behavior, it would seem that he has found himself once again in a situation that has become unavoidable.
Justin Bieber's plea for privacy receives support online
In a strange turn of events, Justin Bieber managed to leave the internet somewhat divided after asking fans to stop loitering outside his home in NYC. By the looks of it, he was on his way back from a jog or perhaps a workout, heading home when fans stopped him to interact in the hopes of taking a few selfies for social media.
Rather than agree, Justin Bieber politely refused, gave them a talk, explained why this was not okay, and spoke about certain boundaries which had to be established. In a video that has now gone viral, the pop star can be seen talking to his fans and laying down some ground rules. Here's what he had to say:
"I hear you, but this is my home, you know what I mean? This is where I live, and I don't appreciate you guys being here. You guys can be anywhere else, but not my home, you know what I mean, right? At the end of the night, when you come home, you want to relax...this is my space. So, I'd appreciate it if you guys could leave."
While it may have sounded rude, his statement did have a lot of truth, and he dealt with the situation in a very calm and polite manner. Despite his best efforts, fans on social media were left divided in opinion.
A few called him out and stated that it was part and parcel of being famous. However, the majority of people defended him and his right to privacy. Here's what a few netizens had to say regarding the situation:
By the looks of things, fans are in full support of Justin Bieber and his right to demand privacy. It goes without saying that intruding on someone's privacy is not a very nice thing to do, irrespective of the circumstances. Fans are now less likely to show up unannounced at his residence anytime soon.
