Now what exactly do y’all expect me to say about this? Huh? I mean. Seri-effing-ously. What am I actually supposed to say after I learn that Justin Bieber took time out of his day to visit the Anne Frank House in Netherlands, and then took time out of his day to sign the guestbook, and then took time out of his day to write the most ridonkulous, self-centered message any human being could ever think to write in a guest book at the Anne Frank House. I have no words, y’all. Nothing. I’m gonna go ahead and ask you to click inside anyway, in hopes that the world will start making sense again within the next few seconds.
Yeah, no. World still not making sense for me. This is directly from the Anne Frank House 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.”
Tonight Bieber will give a concert in Arnhem in the Netherlands.
I know what y’all want me to do. You want me to, like, say something about this. But I can’t do it with this one. It’s not like the Jay-Z/Cam’ron story, it’s not the paparazzi story. This is… different. And I can’t. I. Just. Can’t.
But I welcome you to try and compose a comment of any sort on this story. Let me post his comment again here, line by line, in case you missed anything:
Truly inspiring to be able to come here.
Anne was a great girl.
Hopefully she would have been a belieber.
Okay, that’s all. That’s all I got.
Wait, no. The Facebook comments are pouring in. Here are some responses:
Please Anne Frank house, do not post these stories. Protect these “celebrities” against themselves.
How does he manage to think about his own fame and success attending a historical place of such tragedy and injustice…Like that… I can’t believe I wasted any words on this guy, salut.
Glad he went,but, the last sentence is VERY self serving. he missed the lessons of Anne totally.
She would’ve been a WHAT? That little idiot is way too full of himself. She’s an important historical figure so show some respect.
I find it ironic that all of you are spewing hate. Isn’t this why Anne Frank and countless others had to go into hiding? You are reacting on your own personal feelings and how does that make you any better than other hate mongers? I do not think it it was self serving, I interpret it as a personal retrospect suggesting having ‘a great girl’ like her as a belieber would have been a honor. If his comments and/actions had been disrespectful, in any way, the Anne frank house would not have posted them. You are not noble! You are not honoring her memory! You are demonstrating the very behavior that took her life – that is offensive!!
Beyond disappointing that Bieber totally missed the point. Based on Anne’s writing, she was far too mature to have chosen Bieber as a role model or someone to otherwise idolise. I can only hope that one day, Bieber matures and realises what an arrogant and self-centred little turd he has been. Sure, he may have a lot of screaming teenagers who “love” him, but that’s not exactly something to be proud of. Given the choice of a million kids or one Anne Frank, I’d choose the latter in a heartbeat.
Grow up, Bieber. The world desperately needs more people like Anne Frank – not you. You would do well to become a true fan of Anne, rather than worry about whether Anne would have been a fan of yours.
I think this one about sums it up for me:
Okay. I need a nap. Because… I just can’t.
