Justin Bieber on Anne Frank: ‘Great girl, hopefully she would have been a belieber’

Justin Bieber

These are new photos of Justin Bieber making sweet love to the paparazzi’s lenses while outside his hotel in Amsterdam. His international tour of terror continues in the wake of poor Mally the monkey, who remains in a German shelter after Bieber threw a tantrum and left the country. Now he’s moved on to the Netherlands, and while there he visited the Anne Frank House. I’m sure Bieber wasn’t interested in learning anything at all about history but was just visiting for ill-advised PR reasons similar to his ridiculous new bangs. Sadly, Bieber didn’t take any lessons from the experience if his entry into the guest book is any indication — all he cares about is himself as usual, and he seems convinced that poor Anne would have “been a belieber.” Seriously, here’s what he wrote according to the historical site’s Facebook page:

Justin Bieber

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.”

[From Anne Frank House on Facebook]

Yes, of course. Anne would have had plenty of opportunities while hiding from the Nazis to listen to Bieber’s abysmal tunes if he had been alive during the same time period. Because it’s all about Bieber, right? Surely, he could have helped Anne through it all because his God put made him famous so that he could help people. A little egotistical imp who refuses to pull his pants up for anyone could have made a little thing called WWII disappear in an instant. Nazis, LOL.

This kid … is unbeliebable.

Here are some photos of Biebs performing last Thursday in Antwerp, Belgium. Yes, he’s shirtless. Yes, I am sorry.

    Fact that this talentless, dense individual has been rewarded beyond his dreams…as a species, we’re at the point where we need to think about where it all went wrong.

  2. Amelia says:

    This fuckwit.
    Someone make sure his tour stops off in North Korea.

  3. Bianca says:

    Beyond gross.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    All about him. Disgusting.

  5. Tanguerita says:

    this little prick really outbiebered himself.

  6. LAK says:

    Entertainers are extremely narcissistic, but only Bieber would ‘think’ to use a holocaust victim for self promotion. His parents and handlers must be so proud!!

    • CC says:

      THIS. 1000 times.

    • littlestar says:

      Sadly, his mother probably is proud. Just like her son is lacking self-awareness, she seems to be lacking any kid of awareness as well when it comes to her son. It’s a bit strange and creepy – she seems to worship Justin, from what I’ve seen. Like he can do no wrong in her eyes. No wonder he is the way he is.

      • bluhare says:

        I don’t think his dad is any better. They’re happy there living off the the money this kid makes.

        Hell, they didn’t even raise him. His grandparents tried to.

  7. paola says:

    I can’t stand the guy, he really grates on my nerves but i think he has done worse than this. This episode just shows how ignorant and narrow minded he is but honestly i think it was just a silly comment..and i don’t think is a major issue because i’m sure in that book you can find much worse than this comment.

    • Tapioca says:

      Agreed. It was a naive comment, but in no way malicious. He didn’t have to visit either – he could have spent the day in a “coffee shop” or the Red Light District.

      There is also a positive side to all this. Anne Frank’s father fought for the publication of her diary so that her story would be told – and the chances are a million-odd “beliebers” just Googled who she was.

      Hopefully they learned something.

      • valleymiss says:

        Well, first his Beliebers tried to go to Anne Frank’s Twitter to send her death threats and then….

      • Raised Brow says:

        @Valleymiss, BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!

      • truthSF says:

        Oh vallymiss, Screw you for making me laugh so loud and hard…at work. πŸ™‚

      • BeesKnees says:

        It makes me sad to think they didn’t already know who Anne Frank was. I read the book when I was 11, but that was 20 years ago so who knows.

  8. bowers says:

    This stuff just writes itself.

  9. Eleonor says:

    While I think visiting the Anne Frank house was a good idea (pr or not, because I am not sure all his fans know who Anne Frank was), they shouldn’t have let him spoke: everything he says is stupid.

    • bluhare says:

      I thought he wrote it in the guestbook. Even worse.

      • Inconceivable! says:

        Bluhare – according to the article he DID write it in the guest book there!!!

    • gg says:

      Last I heard, at least in the States, her book was required reading. So there’s really no excuse for everybody in school not to know who Anne Frank was.

      • Isa says:

        It was required reading for me. I know who she is, but I’ve never read her book. I need to read it soon.

      • SageM says:

        Different story here in the UK. A few years ago a survey revealed that 50% of young people out of school had never heard of the holocaust (!)

    • oivey says:

      You’d think they would but I saw tweets asking “Who is Anne Frank?” and they couldn’t work out who she was, they thought she was related to Helen Keller. Also, disgustingly, saw her referred to as “Some Jew girl who was locked up or some sh-t”.

      His comment is ignorant and obnoxious but his moronic fanbase are worse.

      • DeltaJuliet says:

        You know, a society that has forgotten, or come to disrespect tragedies such as these are ripe for a new tragedy to strike. It’s a little scary actually.

    • Rumorhasit says:

      This makes me smile on sooooo many levels…first of all because through his nimrod ignorance, he may have actually raised awareness to this sad lost hopeless Kardashian worshipping, beliebing generation of who Anne Frank was- and that’s not a bad thing at all, as they are apparently not taught at school. They might even stumble across her diary, and in their belieberness may attempt to read it to better understand their “adversary”…it would be too much to hope for even a few of them to be moved to appreciate Anne’s courage, or her spirit in the light of the life she was forced to endure. Or this vague thought called WWII…So much MORE unbeliebably worse than their guru Justin ever had it.
      Justin in his ignorance may have taught something. Another smile.
      And yes, Anne was a Belieber….but in something so much more significant and important than this useless asswaffle.

  10. Scal says:

    That’s the real take away message from the Anne Frank house museum biebs-YOU. /sarcasm Not the tragedy of this family. Not the tragedy of the holocaust. Not even the smaller tragedy of a normal girl having to hide in a attic. It’s all about YOU YOU. Even in the past the world revolved around YOU. Self-promoting ass.

    Also, Anne’s idols at the time were Cary Grant /Greta Garbo/Sonja Henje/QEI/and the Lane sisters-she would have laughed at your sorry self-serving singing. But that’s not the point or take away message! Jerk.

  11. T.Fanty says:

    There are no words.

  12. e.non says:

    and the sadly horrifying thing is that his fan base has no idea who she is…

    hell, surveys show high schoolers think germany was an ally during wwII.

    • andrea says:

      Seriously?? what the heck are they teaching kids these days? Also, can i seethis survey?

  13. Miss M says:

    Delusions of grandeur! This kid is a joke!!!

  14. tifzlan says:

    When he first came onto the scene, i didn’t mind him. I was no fan, but i was no hater either and there were 2 or 3 songs that i caught myself tapping my foot to every once in a while. He was just a talented kid who got a lucky break with Usher, and i didn’t see anything wrong with that.

    His behavior now is disgusting and appalling, and someone needs to pull him aside and slap some sense into him. Realistically, he’s not going to be a household name for much longer but if he continues on this path of narcissism, brattiness and arrogance, his star will dim even sooner. Maybe that’s what we need to teach this punk a lesson. I know his team will never do anything about his growing ego because all they care about is the money, but i thought his family was better than this. Usher, being a veteran in the business and Justin’s mentor, should probably step up and take control of the situation as well but judging from the lack of contact he has had with Bieber, it seems as though Usher has decided to disassociate himself with this bratty twerp. Maybe it’s for the better…

    • Miss M says:

      I don’t know if Usher has decided to dissociate himself from Bieber. But he loved to bring the fact he discovered Bieber on “The Voice”. He finally stopped.

      This kid’s downfall will be awful.

      • tifzlan says:

        Like i said, in the very beginning of his career, Justin was a sweet kid. He had a tremendous work ethic, was passionate and caring towards his fans and aside from his “there’s a purpose for everything, including rape” fiasco, he wasn’t very controversial. Which is why i never understood why people hate him so much. He makes bubblegum pop music with little to no substance to the songs, but he was making people happy and living out his dream. I didn’t see anything wrong with that, and if i was Usher, i’d be really proud too. The phenomenon that came with Justin Bieber was unexpected, and i’m sure Usher was happy that he signed Justin before anyone else did.

        That kid is a completely different person from this new Bieber. The new Bieber is arrogant, nasty, narcissistic and unlikeable. There are just so many off-putting qualities about him nowadays, including his psychotic fans. I wouldn’t want to be associated with a prick either. Maybe Usher HAS tried to bring him down a couple of notches, we don’t really know. There was a blind item about this a few weeks ago, and if the blind is true, then Usher certainly did try to intervene (along with Justin’s mom and Selena Gomez, surprisingly) before things got out of control. Obviously that intervention was unsuccessful, as we can see Justin’s behavior spiraling even more out of control with each passing day.

      • Isa says:

        I agree and I defended him in the beginning when he had a few idiotic moments. Now I can’t stand him, reckless driving, arrogance, idiotic comments. It’s disgusting.

  15. Mia 4S says:

    We need a new name for fans (over the age of 12, younger than thst we’ll apply it to the parents) of this idiot.

    I vote Bliebiots.

    Seriously though, this trash is ignorant and narcissistic.

  16. Mac says:

    Bieber likes to be provocative in a self-serving kind of way and will occasionally push the envelope.

    He may also have just been stoned when he wrote that drivel.

  17. Amy says:

    At least, for once, it’s not an American showing his ignorance all over the place. (Condolences to Canada and especially to Bruce Cockburn, who is probably weeping into his Molson as he reads about his fellow countryman….)

  18. Carolyn says:

    I am absolutely speechless. No words are coming to my brain in response to this.

    • Micki says:

      Wouldn’t it be wonderful if he was absolutely speechless and open his mouth only with pre-prepared one-liner?

      • PortlandJan says:

        Better yet, wire his jaws shut and take the wires off only when he’s on stage.

      • Micki says:

        @PortlandJan:

        Lol, but I expect his fans have to pay extra for the wire? And the silence too?

  19. SydneySpy says:

    God. All I can do is cringe and groan.

  20. Foobie says:

    Justin, you little pos. Anne Frank’s diary will continue to be respected and loved as a heart-rending reminder of human suffering, a dark moment in history, long after you and your shitty songs fall off the face of the earth.

    Anne was an intelligent girl. She would have been an Anti-Belieber.

  21. Guesto says:

    He’s an idiot. Who cares what he says and does? Seriously, no one over the age of 12 should even be aware of this. Or of him, for that matter.

    • LAK says:

      why should only over 12yr olds be made aware if this story? Children are not stupid or without reason eg Take Malala Yousafzai who was shot by the Taliban. She became a fully fledged activist at 11yrs old. Pretty sure her powers of reasoning had been developed alot earlier. Keeping children ignorant is what leads to a Bieber viewing a harrowing historical record and somehow only seeing his own reflection.

      • Guesto says:

        ? Well, you completely missed my point, which is that this little moron even has an audience in the first place, least of all an adult one commenting on and getting outraged over what he says and does.

        If you think he’s worth getting angry over, fine, I don’t.

      • LAK says:

        Ah, having read your response, @Guesto, i see how i completely misinterpreted what you have written.I thought you were talking about kids in general knowing about Anne Frank as opposed to this latest Bieber fiasco. I still stand by my point, but i do apologise for jumping down your throat.

      • Guesto says:

        @LAK – no worries. πŸ™‚

  22. VV says:

    Crap on him all you like but I am not certain there are many 19 year olds who would roll through that museum, and then have something thoughtful to say at the end of it.

    btw I think he’s a total punk and a twerp so I am not defending him. I am just saying youth today are pretty oblivious (insert cane shaking here).

    • Faye says:

      VV — yeah, I didn’t want to say anything in his defense, because he is such a twerp, but he gets props for going, at least.

      I was just in Amsterdam in February, and I stopped by the Anne Frank house. There were actually quite a few teens there, including a group of Korean high schoolers. They were probably all on organized school trips, though.

      • cclaire says:

        I dont know, I’m still a teen and 90% of the teens i know keep impressing me with their historical knowledge and the fact that they are up to date with politics.

      • G. says:

        I’m still a teen too and I love historical things. I was raised in a family that does a lot of historical visit though, so that might be why.

      • Faye says:

        I didn’t mean to imply that all teens are Bieber-level idiots who are uninterested in history. I was responding to the comment made before me to point out that I had seen quite a few teens at the Anne Frank house. I applaud you two and all other educated, informed teens who give us oldies (33, that’s old for a teen πŸ™‚ hope for the country!

    • valleymiss says:

      Well, a few 19 year olds might write, “If I was alive back then I hope we would have been friends.” But that’s really in the same tone as what Bieber wrote. If he had written something like, “If I were alive back then I would have wanted to be her friend,” that would be ok with me. Instead, he’s self-promoting. What an ass.

    • Mrs.Darcy says:

      It makes me so sad if a 19 year old today with this kind of insensitivity can just be written off as typical of his generation – is it really that bad? I read Anne Frank’s diary for the first time when I was in middle school, along with Night by Elie Weisel (I think that may have even been assigned reading, I don’t remember it was 20some yrs ago!).

      Is there really no education of young adolescents today in terms of the Holocaust? And regardless of that he apparently spent enough time in the museum to soak up some of it into his pea brain? There is no excuse for it beyond him being an overpriveleged idiot with absolutely no one giving him perspective in his life. Sad that so many young girls idolize him.

  23. Faye says:

    Honestly, as a granddaughter of Holocaust survivors who takes the issue very seriously, I laughed my butt off when I read this story. Bieber is just so immature and self-centered that I think he is honestly incapable of thinking about anything except in the context of his own universe.

    The reason why I can’t take it as much to heart as, say, some of Seth MacFarlane’s comments on the issue is that I don’t think Bieber comes from a place of hate. He’s just a moron. Maybe not much of an excuse, but there it is.

    • Izzy says:

      Faye, I’m Jewish and honestly could not decide how I should feel about this – or whether I should even GAF. I’m sort of offended, but I like your response better. It’s the dismissal he deserves, the little wart.

      Also: Oh look, a twerp in Antwerp – that city deserves better. Belgium, my deepest apologies for his presence.

    • Myrto says:

      Absolutely. What he said was obviously stupid but I don’t get the hate.
      It’s just so silly, I can’t take that too seriously. Surely there’s actual horrifying shit to get angry about instead of a ridiculous comment made by Bieber?

    • Leen says:

      I’m not Jewish but a professor of mine who is and served on the board for the US holocaust museum came to Bieber’s defense. He said people sort of missed the point, Bieber hoped that Anne Frank would have been a normal teenage girl, not a girl whose in hiding from a genocidal murderous regime with no semblance of a childhood or normalcy.

      But to be honest, he gives Bieber way too much credit.

      • Mich says:

        Way, way, way, way, way, way, WAY too much credit!

      • TheOneAndOnly says:

        Interesting point; I don’t know why so many college profs feel the need to dumb down their comments to accommodate aspects of junk popular culture to avoid offending some of their students; THis kid is a talentless a**hole, and if that offends some teenagers/college students, maybe they need to re-evaluate their musical tastes and their general attitude.

      • Leen says:

        TheOneAndOnly, I think you don’t know my professor very well. He’s a very outspoken person, he really does not care about airing his colorful opinions (he’s a commentator on Fox so believe me I know). He’s not the sort of person to really talk about pop culture just for the sake of not offending his students.

        To my knowledge, this was not said in class, and since he does not teach me anymore it was written on his personal facebook account, so I doubt that this is aimed at college students. He also followed with the fact that no he doesn’t like bieber but just gave his too cents on it. I still disagree because he’s giving him waaay too much credit but I found his take on it very interesting.

        For the record, I don’t really know anyone at college that actually likes Bieber, I’m just saying.

      • Cirque28 says:

        Yep, too much credit!

      • Lisa says:

        That’s an interesting way of looking at it, but who’s going to believe Justin’s mind works on that level? No hands!

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I think the professor was giving Beibs too much credit, way too much.

        Bieb didnt say ANYTHING about wishing that Anne could have had a regular life. The only thing he mentioned revising was that she would be a fan of his. Yes, if you stretch and twist and replace some words then Beibs could have meant such a thing…but that would mean a lot of editing.

  24. OrangeOprah says:

    Sick of him and why in the he11 can’t he walk upright!

    • ZinJoJo says:

      What’s with his posture and also that stupid expression he always has with his eyebrows up — perpetually confused or what?

      • gg says:

        It’s the stance thugs-in-training adopt to make them look like they’re not up to no good. Learned behavior. Doesn’t work.

    • bluhare says:

      I could answer that, but then I’d be accused of insulting Neanderthals.

  25. DanaG says:

    The sad things after his tour he probably still has no idea about her life the fact he wrote the stupid self serving comment shows he didn’t understand the concept of what Anne Frank went through and what a real talent she was. The tide and turned on Bieber but he is way too stupid to see the writing on the wall let him waste all his money he will be a broke no name in no time. Mally the monkey is better off without him hope he goes to his new monkey home soon he will have far more intelligent company there then he ever had with Bieber.

  26. Lady Satan says:

    As a Canadian I just have to say – we’re very sorry. Please don’t think that the rest of Canada is this selfish, self-centered, egotistical, spoiled, and just plain DUMB.

    I really can’t wait until this twit’s 15 minutes are up.

    • jules says:

      I was just about to post the very same thing. Let’s just focus on the awesome Canadians instead, like Ryan Gosling, Joshua Jackson, or – though some may disagree about her awesomeness – Celine Dion.

      • kylee says:

        The best I can do is promise not to hold Dion against you. πŸ˜‰

        You guys gave us Corey Hart back in the day, that goes a long way to make up for Bieber.

      • valleymiss says:

        I’d also like to give Canada credit for Bryan Adams, and Martin Short. And Jim Carrey! Oh and Michael J. Fox!

      • littlestar says:

        Celine Dion – the very best of Canadian cheese! πŸ˜€

      • ncboudicca says:

        Thank you Canada for Sarah McLachlan, Triumph, Rush, and The Kids In The Hall,and a thousand NHL players on whom I had crushes growing up. Special thanks for Brendan Shanahan, my back-up husband in case things don’t work with Cumberbatch.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Oh, absolutely. Martin Short is almost enough to balance out Beeb all by himself.

        I love Canada & will never blame them for this little dumbo. Yes, he’s an embarrassment, but we have Ted Nugent & Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Check out the big brains on them.

      • SageM says:

        And don’t forget those hilarious Trailer Park Boys!

      Don’t worry. We gave the world George W. Bush.

      Canada, you have effed us with Bieber, but we’ve done 1000 worse with the Kardashians. And the Housewives. And Octomom.

    • loveisthecoal says:

      Agreed that Canada has given us lots to make up for Bieber! Thank you for Neil Young, Tim Hortons (seriously, do they put crack in their coffee? IT’S SO GOOD) and most especially, thank you for HOCKEY. Okay, maybe that’s not strictly true but you’ve given us a boatload of amazing hockey players, for which I am eternally grateful.

  27. Maria says:

    Just when you think a person couldn’t have their head further up their own ass, he does this.

    • PortlandJan says:

      I wish his head WAS further up his ass, if only so he wouldn’t “sing” any more.

  28. tory says:

    I don’t want to defend him, but I will. I used to live in Amstelveen which is kind of a suburb of Amsterdam. It was only a twenty minute tram ride every morning to Dam square. I went to the Anne Frank House lots of times. On my own and whenever somebody came to visit, that was one of the places they always wanted to see. Her room was covered (and they left most of them up) in pictures of movie stars and famous singers of the day. In school they always stress to the young people that she wasn’t some elite individual, playing the she’s-just-like-you! card. I’ve frequently seen tour guides ask young ladies and gentlemen who they have on their bedroom wall before going in. I can definitely imagine a tour guide jokingly ask Bieber if he thought Anne would have been a Belieber. Still, it doesn’t take away the fact that in general this kid is ignorant and very proud of it.

    • LAK says:

      I think your very last line is the point of the outrage.

      Bieber doesn’t have the wit to see beyond himself as demonstrated on many occasions. This is just one more example of his idiocy.

      • ZinJoJo says:

        Exactly. I’m waiting to see if when he tours in Rome if he’ll go visit the “Sixteenth Chapel” as he called the Sistine Chapel on David Letterman a while back.

        Ignorant, uneducated and a thoroughly self-absorbed douche.

      • tory says:

        I guess I’m just trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. This kid is in a very unusual situation with no one to guide him it seems. He makes an ass out of himself time after time and instead of learning from the situation, he defends his behavior, because the people around him tell he doesn’t have to adhere to society’s rules because he’s special. Of all the other awful things he’s done, I’m just saying that this should make the top ten list, but not top 5.

    • Nonan says:

      That is an interesting perspective.

  29. Janet says:

    I take comfort in the fact that in a few more years, this little wart will be nothing but an asterisk.

  30. Str8Shooter says:

    What a stupid POS to use the tragedy of this poor girl’s legacy in the Holocaust for shameless self-promotion.

    I hope he goes down in FLAMES real soon.

  31. Green_Eyes says:

    His narcissistic ways is how many his age are anymore. They are growing up in an anyone can be famous society believing they have talent (good agent, auto tuning, reality tv contestants getting famous for doing nothing). I was appalled when I found out my nieces can use their cell phones in class anytime to text, etc & use their laptops to get on FB & other sites. I remember when first introduced in the classrooms, laptops were only used as educational devices & only certain websites accessed. Wonder if the old Bieber even had a real tutor thru high school? Seems he gets what he wants (or excused from what he doesn’t). If we are ignorant or not empathetic to the horrors of our past, history has proven we as a society repeat the mistakes. Just saying…

  32. Sam says:

    Is it the worst thing ever? No. I just think it’s incredibly tone deaf. You’re going to a site that memoralizes people who died as a result of prejudice and totalitarianism. It is probably the best time to NOT make it about you. It’s like the idiots who take goofy pics at memorials – malicious? No. Idiotic and tone-deaf? Yeah. If anything, he’s just displayed his ignorance.

    • Jill says:

      It reminds me of that time Lady Gaga tweeted a picture of herself praying for Brazil after that nightclub fire. Shameless self promotion is right.

  33. nannan says:

    what amazes me is all the hate on this kid. he’s entertaining. period. let it go haters.

    • bluhare says:

      Thanks for my first laugh of the day.

    • Veruca says:

      For you to make that kind of observation, you’re obviously not seeing the bigger picture here.

    • Str8Shooter says:

      Are you really that ignorant that you can’t understand how people would be upset with this little ‘pop tart’ using a victim of the Holocaust for self-promotion?

      Sounds like you’re a member of his target audience.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      You find that entertaining?

  34. dorothy says:

    Stupid, stupid kid.

  35. Chickenlishus says:

    I would kick his ass for that leather jacket…The one he is wearing outside. Want!

  36. Laurie says:

    Someone in an earlier post asked what’s wrong with the world today. This might sum it up:

    Teenage Anne Frank: “Go outside amidst the simple beauty of nature…and know that as long as places like this exist, there will be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be.”

    Teenage Justin Bieber: “Oh, whoa, oh, oh
    Oh, whoa, oh, oh Oh, whoa, oh, oh
    You know you love me.”

    Ummm… yeah.

    • guilty pleasures says:

      Best comment on this thread.

      Beiber needs to go away, he is a pure embarrassment to all things human.

      Parents need to stop paying for their children to go to his concerts, cue new tween idol in 3, 2, 1….

  37. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    What an a$$!

  38. LadyLupton says:

    What he said is beyond offensive. I bet he’s never even read her diary. Let’s hope this controversy will cause his fans to read it, then there’ll be some purpose to this silly little boy’s stupidity.

    He sounds like every other teenager. The world revolves around them.

    • LAK says:

      He is 19 not 13. At 19, most teenagers are legally responsible because they are past the idiocy/juvenile part of being teens. Don’t excuse him as though he is 13.

  40. TxGal says:

    I wonder if someone was to send him “The Diary of Anne Frank”, would he even know how to read??

  41. JL says:

    Obviously he went to the site for a calcualted photo/publicity op.

    Obviously his stupidity blew any opportunity he had for looking like a mature, caring and well educated young man.

  42. PortlandJan says:

    Sorry, Jussy but you’re way off base. To begin with, Anne Frank probably had at least 75-80 IQ points on you. She’d probably laugh herself sick at the thought that you were the best she could do by way of popular taste.
    For another thing, if she had lived, her musical tastes would have run to the entertainers popular in her time-Frank Sinatra, the Dorseys. You know, people who actually made music without benefit of autotuneand who sang or played actual lyrics.
    Is this kid even aware that Anne Frank was murdered simply for belonging to a group that others thought had no right to live?

  43. k says:

    When has a not very bright cash cow overseen by greedy not very bright handlers/family ever ended well?

  44. val says:

    How is he famous???

  45. EscapedConvent says:

    So Anne Frank is…all about him.

    This is the same a$$clown who referred to the Sistine Chapel as “the Sixteenth Chapel” on David Letterman’s show. Letterman looked at the audience & said “Canadian high school, folks.” Beiber looked perplexed as to why everyone was laughing. He had no idea. It’s on Youtube.

    I’m trying not to be overly outraged by this Anne Frank belieber comment, because it is so stunningly ignorant. He’s not diabolical, but he is a self-obsessed moron & should lose his speaking priveleges.

  46. RHONYC says:

    “Anne was a great girl.”

    no, that rumbling wasn’t an earthquake, but Anne Frank rolling over in her grave. this kid is a dumb as a f*cking box of rocks.

    sweet Lord almight. πŸ™„

  47. Baskingshark says:

    “Yes, of course. Anne would have had plenty of opportunities while hiding from the Nazis to listen to Bieber’s abysmal tunes if he had been alive during the same time period.”

    Isn’t Bieber 19? If so, if they were alive in the same time period, and assuming that time period was the early 1940’s, wouldn’t he have been drafted by now?

  48. Itsa Reallyme says:

    I can’t even describe how sad and disgusting I find his comments. He needs an education. And some sensitivity training.

  49. TheOneAndOnly says:

    All these comments are spot on that’s why I visit this site. Your post Laurie may be the best; and yes escaped convent I saw that episode and this idiot was too idiotic to realize everyone was laughing at him.
    And remember greeneyes last yr. an Educator gave a commencement speech entitled “You’re Not Special” and the controversy it aroused. Today’s technology – technophilia as it’s called – is one factor in making today’s young people even more self-involved than any generation since WW II.

  50. Jay says:

    Pics at the end of the article should be captioned “Bieber puts the ‘twerp’ in Antwerp”.

  51. only1shmoo says:

    Why oh why is he CANADIAN(Honestly, I don’t know what we did to deserve this humiliation)???

  52. Tia says:

    OMG he is so uneducated and vain. He is proof that parents need to keep their kids in school…

    • Cirque28 says:

      Exactly! I blame the parents and just the whole child star machine in general. Many of us were that self-oriented and clueless as teenagers, but we had parents who taught us humility and told us to stop making asses of ourselves in public.

  53. JL says:

    If I saw the kid in the 2nd pic on the street I’d think he had some genetic abnormality and wasn’t quite all there. Oh he isn’t – he’s got a bad case of the ass on the shoulders.

  54. goodquestion says:

    I love Ricky Gervais’ response on Twitter: ” Joan of Arc was a great girl. I hope she would have been a Gervatheist.”

  55. anon says:

    Justin Bieber’s comments about Anne Frank were immature and self-centered. However,I do think Bieber’s intentions were good and sincere. I don’t know but all I could think of when people were criticizing Bieber was this Anne Frank quote: “In spite of everything, I still believe people are really good at heart.”

    I was sadden and disappointed to read that some Beieber’s fans did not know who Anne Frank was.

    • Jo says:

      It’s surprising how many really young kids can just go online unsupervised bc I’m sure the ones who didn’t know who she was were 5 years old. I hope.

  56. Melissa says:

    Idiot. I hate this kid. As a Canadian, I apologize on behalf of Canada for this little Sh*t.

  57. lady mary. says:

    this little twat ,how dare he says “anne frank ” and “belieber in the same breath,is hhe even capable of livin even a nanosecond of her life ,this dimwit megalomaniac who lives with rolex watches on both hands, if he would have lived durin that time ,anne must have definetly tuned off the radio each time his baby song popped up
    ps:how cute is tthe policeman in the green vest in second pic ,it was his face that caught my eye ,didnt even notice the “baboon in pants there”

  58. Mich says:

    OMG. I am not really fussed about the stupid thing he wrote in the guest book but the pics of him playing around in the house (pretending to box, posing, etc.)? He is revolting.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Horsing around in the Anne Frank house? This little jerk doesn’t even have enough sense to see how misplaced that is.

      How grown-up of him, to show no respect for this lovely sensitive girl & the horror she lived through.

  59. Bijlee says:

    I don’t know. I feel like teenage boys do this kind of crap pretty often. Typically out of sight of their parents and not so publicly just among friends because they know people will not approve of it. I just find it weird that this is what is considered funny. it’s like trying to be as shockingly rude, offensive, and ignorant as possible…what purpose does it serve?

  60. erika says:

    you know, anne frank was a ‘believer’ in hope, peace, understanding. I read her diary and she inspired me to keep a diary and i have trunkloads of spiral bound notebooks. i faithfully wrote everyday. if anne only knew what kind of impact she would have on the world.

    you are skum justin, skum. if you only had ,000000035% of the beauty she had in her heart.

  61. erika says:

    why does he walk around looking like the village idiot? see last pic.

  62. Loira says:

    I think that spoiled little baby Bieber would not last even a week If he had to endure the limitations and hardhips that Anne, her family and fireds had to endure.
    Or even being in the other end, he would not have had the generous heart of the protectors and providers of these families. Too much money and fame at his age, and the lack of a real education produces people like him, lohan and others.

  63. EllaM says:

    The Anne Frank House issued a statement which said, that the Bieber was very interested in Anne and her history and stayed over an hour. And that they liked his comment and hope, that more of his fans will read the book now. I havent read the book, but one commenter at the FB page of the house said, that Anne had pictures of movie stars at the walls of her room, so maybe she really would have been a belieber.

    I’m not a fan of Justins doucheness, but I think – nevertheless such visits are planned by his staff for pr reasons – he really shows interest. Rihanna wouldn’t have stayed in the house for over an hour for sure….

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Yes, but is it really enough just to show up? He was goofing around in the basement with his buddies so it isn’t like his hour inside the museum was spent reflecting on Anne Frank and what she went through.

  64. goodquestion says:

    TMZ posted photos of Bieber shadow boxing with a friend IN THE MUSEUM – looks like during a tour.

  65. RHONYC says:

    i’m a believer…in his eternal douciness. πŸ™

  66. Jayna says:

    He is truly an idiot.

  67. sashavice says:

    I don’t like the kid, but people are being ridiculously over-sensitive about it. He’s what, 18? God knows I said and did some questionable things at that age. He’ll grow up eventually.

  68. Jayna says:

    Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode gets cancer in the beginning of their last tour, cancels shows, gets operated on, goes back on tour and gets cancer treatment on the road while touring, and he still can strip down and be sexier than you little Bieber-boy. And they are still playing to stadiums in Europe and arenas in America 30 something years after starting a band in their teens. Let’s see if you have over 40,000 to 50,000 fans of all ages in stadium reacting like this, Biebs, over 30 years later. And he can rock no shirt better than you even now.

    2010 Live last show – overcome with emotion their final show of the tour that he finished the tour through adversity and the love of the fans. Biebs will never have an audience grow with him past his teeny bopper time.

  69. Sara B. says:

    I am surprised he didn’t write something about her getting high. Fool.

  70. Jane says:

    He’s such a tool….

  71. Jennifer12 says:

    My 5 year old daughter adores him; that is his audience. Seriously, that is all he could think of to say about Anne Frank??

  72. Lisa says:

    He spent over an hour there, but all he did was think of himself. Little twit.

  73. Suze says:

    He’s more stupid than malicious, but boy oh boy I wish he would just shut up.

  74. dana says:

    I’m not a fan of Bieber although I did think he was talented when he first came out, but I think everybody’s being too harsh for a rather innocuous comment.

    When you see her house, she had posters of entertainers on her wall. She was obviously a big pop fan. If she was a teenage girl today, she probably would be a Bieber fan.

  75. GossipG says:

    Yesterday when i came from work all the little girls were standing outside his HOTEL..OMG…we dont have this kind of ISH here…not use to it..God i hope he already left the country..He also visited the ‘Amsterdam Coffee shop'(puff puff pass) but we didnt hear about that..yet.

  76. MC says:

    This MORON,needs to learn how to have respect towards people, go back to school. Learn to wear proper pants, NOT THE ONES WHERE THE CRUTCH IS JUST ABOVE HIS KNEES. His brain is not fully developed yet,he makes an ASS of himself.

  77. Yelly says:

    I can’t stand the kid but I do find this amusing!

  78. Maggie says:

    He’s a 19 year old kid whose grown up in the spotlite. Lighten up! He’s bound to make a few mistakes. Who knows? Perhaps one day he will become an Ambassador/Special Envoy for the UN and we’ll be calling him a Saint!!!

  79. Julia says:

    He’s disgusting.

    He also started his concert on saturday an hour late and everyone missed their last train. AGAIN.
