Grammy-winning singer Justin Bieber, who quit Instagram in August, says that the photo-sharing app is the devil.
Bieber says he has no desire to return to the social media site because it is like being in “hell”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Speaking on stage in London on Tuesday, he said: “Instagram is for the devil. I think Hell is Instagram. I’m like 90 percent sure. We get sent to hell and we get locked in the Instagram server. I’m stuck in the DMs. I’m trying to climb my way out and I can’t.”
Bieber initially made a brief return to Instagram two weeks after he quit the site in August following a row with former girlfriend Selena Gomez, but he later deactivated his account again.
The As long as you love me hitmaker opted to close down his profile when he feuded with the 23-year-old pop star over a comment he made about his fans being mean to the people he likes.
“I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like,” he had posted.
However, Selena wasn’t impressed and posted to Bieber: “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol, it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you.”
And Justin, 22, soon fired back: “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love. I’m not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my Beliebers.”
The former couple then went on to accuse each other of cheating, with Bieber ending the argument by writing: “I cheated… Oh and I forgot about you and Zayn.”
However, later on, Gomez said she regretted the online spat, telling her Snapchat followers that “what she said was selfish and pointless”.
