The note was written on Tuesday morning.

The heartthrob wrote, “HEY WORLD THAT GLAMOROUS 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!”

The post gained over 1,000,000 likes and over 36,000 comments in just 60 minutes! It is still being debated whether this note was general, or directed at someone in particular.

Interestingly, Justin posted it on the very day the Met Gala took place, where celebrities dress up in over-the-top, extremely expensive dresses and suits. This makes it even more ambiguous; perhaps it was meant not for a person but for the event as a whole.

A majority of his fans commented on Justin’s hypocrisy. Some users inquired the basis of his claim, while the rest were in utter shock at how the $225 billion star could act like he knew the struggles of the less fortunate people.  They questioned how a ‘rich person’ like him could possibly relate to what an un-glamorous life feels like.

One fan, offended by Justin’s post, wrote, “Yeah. I think your life is not as easy as it seems to be. But saying that to people who struggle to pay their bills to afford college or to feed their kids is not really nice.”

It wasn’t long before users started becoming really aggressive. One wrote about how people who claim ‘money cannot buy happiness’ are just liars. The user added, “…Cause money can buy you anything you want and that is happiness.”

Many critics said they would rather cry and be sad in their twenty-bedroom mansion than worry about where to sleep at night. A few fans argued Justin was perhaps aiming to tell fans not to set the glamorous celebrity lifestyle as their ultimate goal, since it comes with its repercussions. However, not many were convinced.

While fans did not seem pleased by Bieber complaining about his life being too glamorous, celebrities showed crazy support for Bieber, expressing how well they could relate to the young superstar’s message. Millie Bobby Brown, English actress and model, commented ‘Amen’. Even Justin’s personal bodyguard, Kenny Hamilton, replied with ‘Truth’.
