Justin Bieber on Israeli Paparazzi: No Respect in Holy Places

Justin Bieber is ticked off at the paparazzi for raining on his parade. The 17-year old pop star arrived in Tel Aviv yesterday, and had plans to explore the city and meet the nation’s prime minister prior to his Thursday show, PopEater reports.

His plans were interrupted, however, by some snap-happy photographers.

“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],” the tween whined via Twitter after he was thwarted in his attempt to visit a place of worship by the aforementioned cameras.

Speaking of respect, you might want to double check your spelling there, kiddo.

He kept right on bashing the press, tweeting: “They should be ashamed of themselves. Take pictures of me eating but not in a place of prayer, ridiculous.” and ” People wait their whole lives for opportunities like this, why would they want to take that experience away from someone.”

Finally, he gave up and headed back to his hotel to pout, with one last Twitter barb to the paparazzi: “staying in the hotel for the rest of the week u happy?”

It’s hard to feel sorry for Mr. Pouty Pants, though, considering his fans have literally risked life and limb merely for the chance to gather outside his hotel, waiting to catch sight of the pop star.

A bus carrying a group of teenage fans from the Gaza border was actually struck by a Hamas rocket en route to Tel Aviv. Luckily the vehicle was stopped and the kids had already exited, or else it would have been truly catastrophic. As it is, one of the teens and the bus driver were injured in the incident.

According to, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had personally invited the group to join him in the meeting he has scheduled with Bieber on Wednesday.

Sorry, Biebs, I think all that Biebermania has gone to your head. You’ll get no sympathy from me.
