It’ll Cost You $2000 To Get a Selfie With Justin Bieber On His Next Tour
It looks like we've entered a new age, people. One where The Selfie, much like water and time before it, is a precious commodity. The evidence? Justin Bieber is charging fans $2000 to take a selfie with him when he goes out on tour next year. Little is known about how the selfie will go down, though. Do you get to use your own phone? Does Justin get filter approval? Will he help you craft a caption with the perfect amount of hashtags?
The pic is part of the Ultimate #Purpose Experience package, which also includes a seat at a barricaded section closest to Justin, a backstage tour and a digital download of Justin's new Purpose album. The download may be the strangest part because if you haven't already downloaded the album, why would you be shelling out the rent of semi-decent 1-bedroom apartment in Williamsburg to see him. I'm guessing some people like the comfort of having a backup Justin Bieber album for their Justin Bieber album.
Fans who still want a picture with the Biebs without the $2000 price tag can buy the “I'll Show You” VIP #Purpose Experience for $925 which includes a group photo of you and no less than “4 to 6 people.” Now that selfie is really looking like the better deal.
Fans of his without disposable income (i.e. all of them) have started the hashtag #justiceforbrokeliebers to vent their frustration of not being able to see their idol without dipping into their college fund. Clearly they're not seeing the sheer possibility of how many likes the aforementioned selfie would get. I mean, depending on how popular you are, it could go into at least the low hundreds. Well worth the money.
It's been a busy week for Justin as he not only released his new Purpose album, but also dropped 12 music videos, one to accompany each song. As good as the album might be, Justin is still trying to cultivate some goodwill with his fans, so this probably isn't the best time to be demanding gobs of money to be able to see him in person.
