Love u guys.. 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.. 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 .. The pressure of meeting people's expectations of what I'm supposed to be is so much for me to handle and a lot on my shoulders. 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.. And I want to stay in the healthy mindset I'm in to give you the best show you have ever seen ;)
Say what you want about the Biebs, but he pretty much nailed this. When you have an entertainment career you can always plead exhaustion. That's just a Mariah Carey pro-tip right there. Pretty sure exhaustion didn't even become an actual prognosis until after everyone started shitting all over 'Glitter'. I'm not saying that it's not true. I'm sure it is a huge hassle to meet an endless amount of people that you don't know every single day and have to grin and bear it each and every time. I barely have the energy to smile all the way through one single interaction with a stranger, and Justin Bieber has to do it with hundreds of thousands of lunatics that are crazy enough to pay over $450 just to take a fucking picture with him. Makes sense that he would want to put an end to that, and what better way to put an end to it by then rolling out every cliche in the book. Spiritually drained. Mentally and emotionally exhausted. So much to handle. A lot on my shoulders. The pressure of meeting expectations. Throw in a "depression" reference just to put a nice little self pitying bow on it. That's how you do it my friends. That's how you tell people "I have no interest whatsoever in talking to you", and still come away a sympathetic figure. If only this tactic worked as well for people who weren't rich and famous. Then we would really be on to something.
