Justin Bieber, who happens to be one of the most-followed people on Instagram, posted a message to followers today, that encouraged fans not to fall into a dangerous lie about fame.
He wrote, “Hey, that glamour lifestyle you see portrayed by famous people on Instagram, don’t be fooled thinking their life is better than yours. I can promise you it’s not!” (We added some punctuation, but the original message is below.)
It’s not the first time he’s talked about the deception of fame. Back in 2016, he told The Mirror:
I would really suggest to people, ‘Don’t put your faith in me.’ Because I’m gonna disappoint you every time. Yeah. It’s scary. But I want them to know that I’m not going to be able to solve their problems … I’m not that higher power. I’ll never be. I’m not perfect. I’ve made so many mistakes. I just want to get to a place where … I just want people to know humans aren’t meant to be worshipped. We’re just not. So when a human is being worshipped, this is dangerous. ’Cause it does nothing but give you pride.
