It looks like Justin Bieber is the latest celebrity to jump on the emoji app trend. The singer appears to have teased the upcoming release of his app on Instagram. Bieber posted a cartoon version of himself complete with his tattoos and a backwards hat holding up a sign reading “no photos,” and the caption “Friday @AppStore.”
The new emoji is a reference to Bieber’s new photo policy. He announced that he would no longer be taking photos with his fans last month. “It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human,” Bieber wrote on Instagram.”I want to be able to keep my sanity. I realize people will be disappointed but I don’t owe anybody a picture.”
Bieber joins plenty of other artists and celebrities who have released their own set of emojis, including Future, Fetty Wap, and Amber Rose. Not to mention, Kim Kardashian, who was reportedly making one million dollars per minute after launching her Kimoji app.
It looks like we will have to wait and see which other characters Bieber will include in his emoji keyboard. But, stay tuned for details.
