Justin Bieber fans who have been waiting for the pop star to return to Instagram are probably gonna be waiting for a while. During a show in London Tuesday night, Bieber brought up the social network that he tragically abandoned earlier this year. "Who thinks I should get my Instagram back?" he asked. When tons of fans screamed in excitement, he immediately shot down the idea. "Nah, I don't want to get my Instagram back."
According to the Biebs, he's staying away from the Facebook-owned social network out of holy concern. "Instagram is for the devil. I think hell is Instagram. I'm 90 percent sure. We get sent to hell, we get like locked in the Instagram server," he said.
Bieber famously fled the social network earlier this year amidst concerns that fans were being unrelentingly negative on his posts. He pleaded with fans to stop writing mean comments about his rumored girlfriend Sofia Richie, but they neglected to heed his advice. He first made his account private, prompting comments from his ex Selena Gomez telling him to be more understanding. She later accused him of cheating on her, and he deleted his account soon afterwards.
Unfortunately, based on his comments at the tour, it doesn't look like Bieber will be back on Instagram anytime soon. He's seemed pretty exhausted overall recently, with a year's worth of relentless touring clearly starting to get to him. Hopefully, with the holidays coming up, he'll get the rest he needs and can come back feeling a little happier in 2017.
