Justin Bieber doesn’t want to hug his fans, according to Billboard. The “Sorry” singer refused to hug his fan while doing the rounds of social media shows, and the whole thing was captured on camera!
Millions of Beliebers around the world were sad to hear the news, as Justin Bieber has refused to hug his fans in the past. But it appears that the answer is still “no.” At least that’s what he said when one of his brave fans asked for a hug while the “What Do You Mean?” singer was working his way through shopping racks.
The incident happened while Justin Bieber tried to shop for clothes in Barney’s. And let’s admit it: sometimes people, even celebrities, want to shop peacefully without other people interrupting and asking for hugs, selfies, and all that other fan stuff.
But Barney’s isn’t just any clothing store for Justin Bieber, as it has recently announced its support of his Purpose Tour XO. Earlier this year, Bieber warned that he didn’t want to give out his autographs and hugs to his fans anymore.
In fact, Justin Bieber went as far as canceling all of his meet-and-greets, explaining that such interactions with his fans make him feel “mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression.”
And explaining that he was done feeling “drained and unhappy” after dealing with other people’s “spiritual energy,” Justin Bieber said he would rather make more quality music than have his energy drained from him.
Just last week, Justin Bieber made headlines calling one of his fans’ hat “that s**t.” During his performance at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J, one of his fans threw a hat on stage, and Bieber said, “I probably don’t want that shit.” But realizing what he had just said, he quickly apologized and said it was “mean” to say that.
In other news, Justin Bieber has just collaborated with Major Lazer and Danish singer MØ to make a hit song that is expected to rock R’n’B floors around the world this summer, according to Rolling Stone. The 22-year-old singer was recruited by Major Lazer to release the “Cold Water” single, which will be featured on Major Lazer’s upcoming LP, Music Is the Weapon.
And Major Lazer’s Diplo, who also collaborated with Justin Bieber on their 2015 hit song “Where Are Ü Now,” revealed that the whole thing was “spontaneous,” adding that no one believed they could record anything as good as “Cold Water.”
In his recent interview with Rolling Stone, Diplo revealed that in the single, which was written by himself, Ed Sheeran, and Benny Blanco, Justin Bieber brought perfect harmony to MØ’s music style and the smooth African guitar.
Diplo also said that Drake’s “One Dance” and Rihanna’s “Work” hits are the two examples of today’s songs pushing pop’s limits.
“On the radio, we went through a bland period for a while, but now there is just some awesome music.”
Diplo, who also collaborated with Skrillex to release a remix for Justin Bieber’s “Where Are Ü Now,” said he invited MØ for “Cold Water” because she is an “ambiguous” singer who grew up singing both pop and punk.
“Her word choice and her metaphors are just so foreign from American songwriters who tend to overuse the same phrases.”

But Major Lazer’s recent collaboration with Justin Bieber is not the only project the band has been working on lately. Major Lazer, which is comprised of Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire recently released a music video for their hit song “Night Riders,” featuring Travis Scott, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz.
