Justin Bieber is pushing back HARD against the concept of fame!
Late Monday night, Justin posted a poignant video about the bizarre idea of celebrity and what it means to take a photo of a famous person. The message comes on the heels of Bieber's controversial no picture policy he instated last month.

While J.B. isn't the one speaking in the video (it appears to be famous pastor T.D. Jakes), it's clear he identifies with the wise words. The singer did get into a recent brawl with a fan who asked for an autograph and pic, after all!
In the powerful video, the man speaking divulges some truth bombs about admirer photos, saying:
"They don't want to know you, they just want to be seen with you…. the image is the cheapest part of the person."
Dayum! Perhaps the Kardashians should get a load of this message — they do love their pap photos and nights out at Craig's!
As for why Justin decided to share the vid last night, we imagine he was feeling extra sensitive after his emotional concert tribute to Christina Grimmie. Considering Christina was shot and killed by a deranged fan, we bet the lows of celebrity was on his mind.
Either way, Jakes' short speech (below) is pretty interesting. It's also nice to see the 21-year-old expressing his thoughts in a positive way opposed to other reckless behavior.
So, what do YOU think of this talk?
