During the latest stop of his Purpose Tour in Birmingham, England, Justin Bieber took the time out to workshop with his fans how they could be better concert goers. The singer was in the middle of a passionate speech about missing home and his family while being on the road, when he apparently got so frustrated with his fans shouting phrases of affirmation that he told them "the screaming is so obnoxious".
"I get it," he said to the screaming crowd. "But I'm like two feet away from you. And I can hear you. I appreciate it. I appreciate all the love. It's amazing. But can you show it in a different way? The screaming is just so obnoxious."
You're right, Justin. What could be worse than a screaming arena full of adoring fans? Oh, that's right, a dead silent arena full of no fans.
"Take a chill pill for a second and just listen to me speak," Bieber went on to beg. "I don't feel like I'm being heard sometimes and it gets a little frustrating. So if when I'm speaking you guys could not scream at the top of your lungs, is that cool with you guys? Can we do that?"

Like a capri-wearing helicopter mom, Justin is quick to chastise his fans. This past summer he scolded them for asking so many questions about his relationship to Sofia Richie and threatened to make his Instagram private.
After Selena Gomez scalped him for the attack in the most glorious shade fest of 2016 thus far, Bieber then followed up on the threat and deleted his Instagram account.
Before that, in May, the star declared that he would no longer take selfies with fans, saying, "I feel like a zoo animal".
And BEFORE THAT he abruptly cancelled all of the meet and greets on his tour, leaving fans who had purchased a package lost in the wind.
