Skip to comments.Justin Bieber pays bizarre tribute to Anne Frank
Posted on 04/14/2013 8:14:56 AM PDT by SMGFan
TENNAGE pop singer Justin Bieber has sparked controversy after writing a message in the Anne Frank house guestbook saying that he hoped she would have been a fan of his music.
The 19-year-old is due to perform tonight in Arnhem, around an hour from Amsterdam, where the Anne Frank House is situated, and visited the museum on Saturday night.
Staff from the museum wrote on their Facebook page: Yesterday night Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House, together with his friends and guards.
Fans were waiting outside to see a glimpse of him. He stayed more than an hour in the museum.
In our guestbook he wrote: Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.

he’s a sick one, for sure.. a junior james dean in the making? .. so much success with so little talent.. and so much ‘adulation’ when all when is is a just a cute face.. getting older.. and vainer. who’s he think he is, Mick Jagger?
2nd when = he
Hell, at least he went there. Most 19 year old performers in Amsterdam would be doing 1000 other things but that. Not to mention Dutch demograhics ain’t exactly Jew friendly these days. So the kid goes, writes something nice in the guest book, and writes he hopes she would have liked his music.
Why’s that pathetic?
I think he’s ok cause he went out of his way to fly Casey the Punisher and his family to a few concerts, and brought him out on stage.
Only because he wrote “hopefully Anne Frank would have been a belieber”.
Gotta root for you on this.
Of all the things to do, and see, in Amsterdam. To actually go to Anne Frank’s is one of the good ones.

And as an aside, one Nazi cop leading 3 Dutch cops. Thats what arrested the Frank Family.
There came a day when they needed an AK or an AR, with one 30 round magazine. It was very doable that all four could have been gunned down before they could have opened a flapped euro holster.
Exit, and walk down the street. Maybe you make it, maybe not. But better than a concentration camp.
And for the record, i have no idea what his music sounds like. I suspect it wouldn’t sound right in my truck.
And hoping that she would have liked his music is bad because ...?
I’m certainly no fan of his but I don’t see anything wrong with what he wrote.
That’s a good point. But he still blew it. If I were going to reference myself in a situation like that, I’d be a lot more careful. Like “I can only hope the effort I put into my music is worthy of the life she never had, and that she’d enjoy it.”
Even then.....I wouldn’t do it.
A belieber is a Justin Beiber fanatic. And I read last week half of his 37.5 million followers on twitter are fake.
“Cute” isn’t a survival skill.
I’m on your side. I think it has no place there.
So are you, Justin.
I don’t know if he is sick. Considering most kids his age have been brainwashed with anti-Semitic/anti-Israel/pro-Palestine blather in school (Canuck schools do it too)...surprised he would visit Anne Frank House
I don’t think it’s bizarre - it’s pretty much expected from a self-centered entertainer. I’m glad he went, which puts him above most singers and actors. With politics today, it’s always nice to remind people of just how dangerous government can become as it accumulates power, and drawing attention to Anne Frank is a good thing, even if it is done awkwardly.
She would have felt the same about you, beiber.
Please, give him a break. He really seems to be a decent sort. He flew up from New York to spend an hour (!) with the sweetest little girl who was a fan of his at Boston’s Children’s Hospital before flying back. She died a few months later.
He merely expressed the hope that Ann Frank would have been a fan. Where’s the harm in that? (Judging from her diary, she seemed a little too sophisticated for him.) Visiting the Anne Frank house is a moving experience, BTW.
I’m with you. Been there, too, btw. I really had to choke back the tears. It makes you understand that there is evil in the world and it needs to be resisted.
Yes, it was awkward, but if millions of teenage girls decide to research the Anne Frank story, then perhaps it will have done some good.
I’ve also visited there ... Anne Frank probably would have been a fan of Bieber. She was just an ordinary teenage girl like most others with an innocent and idealistic heart.
When is this little punks 15 minutes going to be up? Hurry up and become a drug addict already.
The touching thing about Anne Frank’s Diary is her humanity and her sophistication, for a fourteen year old. She is perceptive beyond her years, and articulate. When I was in my early teens almost everyone read Anne Frank’s Diary. Not so much, anymore.
I give him 5 years, tops, before he’s too old for his NAMBLA fan base and they abandon him. Then we’ll see if Justin can survive on his talent alone.
Excuse me? You’re being way too nice.
Who is "Casey the Punisher"?
So are you, Justin.
Beiber is Miley Cyrus in drag.

‘’She would have felt the same about you beiber.’’< Yeah, right? Except of course for that whole WW2/Holocaust thing going on.Okay, so the kid at least knew who she was but for Heavens sake couldn’t he have shown a little solemnity for who Anne frank was and what she represented? Why does it have to be about him?
Narcissism is a deadly disease.
We’re supposed to know that, I guess. I googled it, and apparently he’s a kid that put the smack-down on a bully using martial arts.
You got the initials and first name right, but it's another gynæcian white boy.
He’s having a nervous breakdown, panic attacks and all. Child star syndrome. He’s not aging well in his little cute boy act.
Agreed. I visited the Anne Frank home. It was a solemn monument of socialist tyranny and the horror experienced by innocents. Hardly an occasion for self promotion. And yes, she probably would have thought he was a girl...
James Dean had a lot of talent.
Yup, only in America can a young black boy grow up to look like a middle -aged white woman.
I’d like to know who leaked his comment in the guestbook. That wasn’t very nice.
Also, if he took the tour, he will have seen the many photos of movie stars with which Anne decorated her room. I remember Ginger Rogers was one. Perhaps that’s what prompted him to write what he did.
Everything isn’t about YOU, Justin.
He also looked like a man.
