Justin Bieber has a picture problem.
The pop star took to his Instagram Story this week to call out media outlets for using old photos that make him look "bad," and he seems to think it's somewhat intentional.
"I'm still in shock we are still using these photos of me, I'm telling you media wants to pick bad photos of me to make it look like I'm not okay," he said on social media, according to The Blast, who posted screengrabs of Justin's comments.
While railing against the media, he included a collage of images — some of them were recent, and one was older. Media outlets continue to use the older one, which is from the premiere of his YouTube series, "Justin Bieber: Seasons," in January 2020.
"There have been countless photo shoots and opportunities for media to pick up other photos but they still run with this one to make me look sick and unwell, its not right," he said, referring to the 18-month-old photo.
The irksome red carpet photo was shot after Justin revealed that he contracted Lyme disease and had been secretly battling chronic mononucleosis. Interestingly, the singer still has a photo from that evening still posted to his Instagram.
Justin firmly believes that many people want to see him fail. After his picture issue, he shared an interesting message, but it's not known if he was referring to the media.
"Understand that there are people in your life that don't want you to thrive, and sometimes that is a hard pill to swallow," he wrote. "Sometimes the people you love the most will be jealous of you. All we can do is forgive them and set the appropriate boundaries."
With those years-old images in his rearview mirror, Justin is now thriving and has overcome his health issues. His life is pretty picture perfect.
