Justin Bieber is no stranger to mobs of fans following his every move, but the singer this week isn’t having problems with his legions of fans, but rather the ‘Holy Lands’ paparazzi who have been following him around Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, never giving the teen sensation a chance to have his own personal experiences.
Bieber has plans to visit Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday and to visit various landmarks, however large crowds of paparazzi have made that nearly impossible, forcing Bieber to tweet:
“I’m in the holy land and I am grateful for that. I just want to have the same personal experience that others have here. So I’m looking forward to this week and I look forward to putting on a great show…”
More specifically Bieber is upset with how overly aggressive paparazzi in the country have been, sending out various angry tweets on Tuesday to those star chasers:
“You would think paparazzi would have some respect in holy places. All I wanted was the chance to walk where jesus did here in isreal (sic).”
Bieber later added
“They should be ashamed of themselves,” and “Take pictures of me eating but not in a place of prayer, ridiculous … People wait their whole lives for opportunities like this, why would they want to take that experience away from someone … Staying in the hotel for the rest of the week u happy? It’s not the fans, and some of the paps were nice enough to leave. But some people just don’t have respect..”
Poor Justin Bieber and his hundres of millions of dollars. If you’re in the spotlight for as long as he has been, you should be prepared to come under siege wherever you go.
