Justin Bieber: tricky one. Having started his career making the kind of teenie-pop that made you want to impale yourself with a clothes hanger whenever you accidentally heard it in TK Maxx, he went and 'discovered' Diplo and got himself some bangers produced that made their way onto your gym Spotify list. Suddenly, you were a Belieber too.
But then again he keeps doing dumb stuff like this: storming off stage because his audience of pre-pubescent love heart eyes emojis made too many scream-y sounds.
"I appreciate all the support, I appreciate love I appreciate the kind things," he told the crowd in Manchester.
"But the screaming in these breaks has got to stop. Please and thank you.
"I don't think it's necessary when I'm trying to say something and you guys are screaming."
Then he did the old drop-the-mic-and-storm-off-stage thing, before coming back on shortly afterwards – presumably after a few minutes of pleading from his press officer – to explain his position further.
"Manc can't handle the talking so I won't talk," he said, talking.
"But the reason why I was getting upset earlier was because I traveled across the whole world to come here and I dedicate my life to performing and bring smiles to people's faces.
"I feel that people were just not giving me the same respect back and it hurts a little bit so that's why. But we're gonna end it on this last song… 'Baby'."
This latest strop came just days after he told fans off in Birmingham for the same offence.
"Can you guys do me a favour? Can you relax for two seconds?" he asked them.
"I get it but I'm like two feet away from you. I appreciate all of the love but can you show it in a different way? Show you love me in a different way. Screaming is so obnoxious."
So what are we to conclude from the boy Bieb's protestations? Seemingly that he's pissed off his new, more 'mature' music hasn't resulted in a new, more mature crowd showing up at his gigs.
Sorry Justin, but while we'll all sheepishly admit 'Sorry' is tune we're not about to pay forty quid to watch you dance about.
Leave that to the screeching kids who still pay your wages - and maybe show them a little gratitude.
