TEENAGE 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.’”
A ‘belieber’ is the name given to the singer’s fans.
Bieber is no stranger to controversy; on March 5th he issued an apology after keeping fans waiting for nearly two hours at a concert in London, whilst four days later he was involved in a very public spat with a photographer, threatening to ‘f****** beat the f***’ out of him.
And on March 30th, Bieber was forced to leave his pet monkey in quarantine at a German airport after the Canadian singer arrived in Munich without the necessary documentation.
