Anne Frank "could have been a belieber"

Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House yesterday in Amsterdam with throngs of fans screaming his name outside. He signed the guest book, concluding with the message "I hope you could have been a belieber."

What the fuck is wrong with this kid?

He was apparently a nasty piece of work when he hosted SNL a few months ago. A crew friend of mine told me that he pushed himself past an electrician (who'd been there since 1975) and muttered "Out of my way, old man." And at the after party a waitress refused to serve him a beer because he was underage and he yelled out "Hey, how about I get sent a PRETTY waitress to my table next time?" Revolting little shit.

I'm with R41. If Anne Frank had been a 13-year-old girl today, she probably would've been a fan of Bieber. At the time, she had a fascination with Hollywood movies and American* culture. She even wrote about one of her photographs: "This is a photograph of me as I wish I looked all the time. Then I might still have a chance of getting to Hollywood. But at present, I'm afraid, I usually look quite different." She also hung posters/pictures of Hollywood stars in her attic room. In short, she was not above liking the latest flash in the pan or flavor of the month.

*I realize Bieber is Canadian by birth, but he's made his career and fortune in America.

Given the entertainment industry's obsessive promotion of arbitrary change (except for rap of course) Justin will be needing to reshape his image soon in a dramatic way.

Anne Frank had an interest in famous people. She put up pictures of movie stars and the young princesses Elizabeth and Margaret in the annex to make her surrounding more cheerful. But I seriously doubt she would have been a swooning, shrieking, worshipping "fan" of some dumb singing doofus. She was a lot more interesting in the young males she actually knew then in fantasy figures. In school she was quite popular with the boys; she had an engaging, outgoing personality that drew people to her, both male and female. She had a lot of friends; she didn't have any need or desire to moon over somebody she didn't even know.

I've read Anne Frank's diary at least ten times. I feel qualified to speak in this thread, not just because of familiarity with Anne Frank, but also because I would have had an uncle, my mother's half-brother, if he hadn't died in Dachau.

What I recall most of all about her, R103 -- her throughline, if you will, one made all the more ironic by her time in both the annex and her actual concentration camp, Bergen-Belsen, is the quote I paraphrased in R1, "“Despite everything, I believe people are really good at heart."

True, R41, but that isn't point at all.

To make excuses for Bieber and your stupid friend for not knowing who she is, is beyond ridiculous.

At the least, it comes across as poorly worded comment on Anne's age and how she would have acted if alive. At worst, it appears on Bieber's part to be self-promotional and self-serving. I think the latter is why many people are getting upset about the comment -- in today's world it seems like a lot of people, especially "celebrities" from anywhere on the B-list to the bottom of the Z-list are always trying to promote and sell themselves at every opportunity, from the Kardashian clan to the "Teen Mom" trying to sell her sex tape for millions.

I didn't meet him until he was 19, so I wasn't around for his grammar school education. I think he went to a private Christian school in Fairfax County, VA, for high school.

r136 if your friend was born in the late '70s, then he's about my age. Anne Frank was very much a figure taught in school. By the 1980s when I was in grammar school, we did learn about Anne Frank. In junior high, again, the story of Anne Frank was once again taught. We read her diary. We watched a movie about her and we wrote about her.

Even if your friend attended a private Christian grammar school, surely he would have learned about her either in junior high or high school. Are you saying he attended a Christian school all the way through high school?

It's not rare for people manufacture a "friens" just to bolster a point they are trying to make.

R138 I didn't say he attended Christian grammar school. I don't know where he went to grammar school. I said he went to a Christian high school is as much as I know.

I would not bother making anything up. That you would accuse me of doing so says more about how you think, and do things, than anything about me.

Your insistence that I've made someone up tells me you are really making this a personal attack on me. So far, I've tried to stick to the issue at hand.

But now I must wonder aloud about you: Are you this vicious in all areas of life? You must have lots of friends. Or maybe you drink all day -- "for people manufacture 'friens'" kind of bears that out. That and your failure to mirror back the whole grammar school/high school business.

How much longer before this little prick fades out of popularity?

by Anonymousreply 14004/14/2013

Whatever Anne Frank's interests in popular culture may have been in the early 1940s, it is beyond bizarre and incredibly absurd for him to transpose the young girl who died in 1945 into a teenager in 2013.

He spent an hour in the house. Was he unable to glean anything from that visit? Surely someone must have explained to him before he went -- or while he was there -- the significance of the house.

And, yet, none of that stuck, apparently. So, yes, he did make it all about himself, and in the process he came off as a vulgar, stupid, dim-witted, little moron.

And, this quote from Anne:

[quote]Despite everything, I believe people are really good at heart.

does not excuse the stupidity. We can understand his idiocy, and even, on some level, forgive it. But that doesn't mean he gets a pass for bad behavior or for all the ridiculous utterances that fall out of his pea-size brain.

Who were these people, R172? I'd not heard that before. Here's what Miep Gies, who managed things on the outside had to say about who turned the Franks in:

How did the Nazis find the attic? Who do you think turned the Franks in to the Green Police?

Someone must have betrayed them to the Nazis. We never found out. Don't forget that many people lived in that neighborhood and possibly noticed something by day or heard something at night. It could have been one of the burglars that came to that place. It could have also been one of the people working in the building. We will never know.

The Austrian policeman was interviewed afterward, but he did not know who had called the police with the information. The Nazi who took the call died. So they could not ask him who had called. No one knows.

Twice, after the war, the Dutch police made an extensive effort to find the person who turned my friends in. Without success! There were suspicions. Some people were pointing at the man working in the warehouse, but the Court decided there was no evidence. Also, in my opinion, I don't think this man has done it. So, we don't know!

He did it for the legions of "Beliebers" waiting for him outside. He probably wandered through while talking about when his newest Ferrari was going to arrive and who the latest women his pre-pubescent self was going to bang later on. Followed by lots of weed stops in Amsterdam.

Otherwise, it's too much work to look further.

Yes, I'm cynical. I heard of this story today when one of the employees at a coffeehouse was talking about it. A four or five year old girl lit up when she heard Bieber's name. She was quick to tell her Mommy Bieber has a new girlfriend.

My British grandfather was killed while fighting Rommel's troops in Tunisia in 1942. My mother was eight years old when she was told Daddy wasn't coming home. It affected her in so many ways we could see. So, this story hits a nerve with me. WW2 still impacts people today. It wasn't so long ago.

I think Bieber has been coddled by his own parents, and then the music industry. I honestly think he believes his own publicity. Neobody's telling otherwise. He's surrounded by yes-men and sycophants. It's been that way for most of his teen years., and naturally it's gotten to his head. Like many 19-year-olds he thinks he's invincible, but multiply that by 100. Failure is going to be a rude awakening.

Wow, people on here making a mountain over nothing. He at least went to the museum which wouldn't occur to the majority of 19 year olds.

And Anne Frank was not a saint nor a genius, she was a very typical young girl who complained about her parents not understanding her, had sibling rivalry & a big crushes, which is why what happened to her was tragic. Because she was so normal. She & her sister decorated the walls of their hideout with pictures of what you'd call celebrities of her time. Supposedly they show that in the museum. Maybe he was referencing this.

I have a feeling not one of you outraged people actually read the Diary of Anne Frank. And the venom on here puts some of you on an even lower maturity level than this guy. This is what he got out of the museum this time. If he visits again maybe he'll get something else out.

But I think some of you superior people on here need to realize you don't get to tell anyone how to respond to events like this. You're not the Holocaust thought police.

R240, what was insensitive about his comment is that he took the tour, where they give you a run-down of the Holocaust and her story, what she and her family endured while hiding from the Nazis, and how she eventually died in a death camp at age fifteen. But after all that, the only thing he could make was a self-serving comment?

Tempest in a teapot and the press, and many on this thread are being ridiculous. Anyone who gets up close to horror on any level, if they are remotely normal, personalize it to try an understand it. Anne Frank might well have been a belieber (I am no fan, but I am not a 13 year old girl), but I think his tweet can be interpreted as an innocent desire to be friends with her- to what her to like him which is a universal desire. R240 nailed it.

I think the press is out of control

It wasn't a tweet, R253, he wrote it in the Anne Frank House guestbook. It's starts out fine, but the last sentence was just self-serving:

Mind you, he's not just speculating that she would have been a so-called Belieber if she were a 13-year-old girl today, but that he HOPES that she would have been. It implies that she would not be worth his time otherwise.

Rabbi defends Bieber An expert on Anne Frank came to Bieber's defense Monday. Had Frank been born 70 years later, she would have likely been a "belieber," said Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Simon Weisenthal Center in Los Angeles. "There's nothing insulting about that," Rabbi Hier told CNN. "She was very modern and she could very likely be his fan and on Twitter." Hier has studied Frank's life and journal closely in preparation for the creation of a permanent exhibit at his center's Museum of Tolerance in Beverly Hills. "Anne Frank was a very modern girl," he said. "In the room, she had pictures of Hollywood stars. She was infatuated with Hollywood."

R247, I'm not so sure that Canadian rich white boys have to stand on street corners to sing for nickles and dimes to help support a family. Unless that passes for rich in Canada. I'm sorry but how psychologically disturbed and damaged does a person have to be to call someone a white nigger? Clearly they come from the same background as Bieber before the fame. Nothing else explains such crass, crude, and simple minded language and attitude.

That Rabbi at R262 and other idiot Beliebers on this thread are missing the point: No one's debating whether she would have been a Belieber in this day and age, it's Bieber's self-serving message on the guestbook that "Hopefully she would have been a Belieber" that is off-putting, especially after taking the tour and finding out the horrors of the Holocaust and what she and her family went through. No reflection whatsoever.

It would be like going to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC and writing, "If the Holocaust hadn't happened, 6 million people hopefully would have been Beliebers."

That Rabbi is a retard. NOTHING about Anne Frank suggests that she would be a Twittering idiot with a crush on Justin Bieber. And she was definitely NOT "infatuated with Hollywood." She wanted to be a writer, to travel, to meet interesting people. But she absolutely did NOT have an infatuation with Hollywood. Putting some pictures of dancers, movies stars and Princesses on the wall to make her surroundings more pleasant does not constitute "infatuation."

That idiot Rabbi sounds like HE'S a "belieber."

From The Onion:

Justin Bieber Fan Jealous Of Anne Frank

ISSUE 49•16 • Apr 15, 2013

TALLAHASSEE, FL—Following weekend reports that teen pop sensation Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, local Bieber fan Khloe McNeal, 13, announced Monday that she was ‘jealous’ of the 15-year-old Holocaust victim. “Biebs went to her house? So unfair,” said the diehard ‘Belieber’ of the persecuted Jewish teen who, after hiding from the Nazis for two years in a cramped attic, died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp just weeks before its liberation. “What makes her so special that she gets a shout out? I retweet him every day and he mentions her by name and calls her a ‘great girl?’ Ugh.” McNeal went on to say that she was so envious of Frank that she wanted to “literally die,” adding that “some girls just have all the luck.”

by Anonymousreply 28204/15/2013

His message trivializes Anne Frank, both the person she was & the symbol she's become. He probably didn't intend to do that, since he doesn't seem to be much of a deep thinker -- more likely he just wrote the first thing on his mind: neat girl, would have loved it if she was one of my fans!

He seems to have the ego of a 4 year old:

Robert Stack ("Unsolved Mysteries") and Oscar-nominated for WRITTEN IN THE WIND.

[quote]One fan apparently was Anne Frank, the Jewish girl whose family hid from the Nazis in an Amsterdam house for 25 months before they were captured in World War II. Friend and longtime Hollywood publicist Warren Cowan recalled Stack's pleasure when he was told that Cowan had seen a publicity photo of the actor in Frank's preserved home.

by Anonymousreply 29004/15/2013

This is from Dlisted. Pretty funny...and accurate:

In "fuckery you just can't make up" news, Justin Bieber and some of his friends visited the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam last night and not only did the shit-brained fetus keep his sunglasses on in the museum, but he also vomited up pieces of his ego all over the museum's guestbook. After learning that Anne Frank hid in the attic for two years and was eventually captured by the Nazis and died in a concentration camp, the only question the Biebs asked was, "I wonder if she would've been a Belieber?" Out of everything, that's what he got out of the Anne Frank Museum. I just.... I don't.... I mean... I CAN'T!

The Anne Frank Museum Facebook page posted a transcription of what Justin Bieber wrote and it's the reason why humanity cries today:

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.

Please, everybody knows that Anne Frank would've been a One Direction fan.

Another sad part of this is that the Beliebers probably don't even know who Anne Frank is and they're going to start sending her death threats on Twitter, because he gave her a shout out instead of them.

And Justin Bieber accomplished the impossible by managing to out-Bieber himself.

Anne's stepsister defend Beiber

To Anne Frank's stepsister, Eva Schloss, the furor over Justin Bieber and a remark he left in the guestbook of the Anne Frank House is "childish."

Schloss, a Holocaust survivor who's written a recently released autobiography called "After Auschwitz," told the U.K.'s Telegraph that she agrees Frank might've been a fan of the teen pop star, as Bieber controversially suggested last Friday.

"Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber," the 19-year-old singer penned in the Anne Frank House's guestbook, sparking an outpouring of backlash across the Web and beyond.

Critics, like commentator Dean Obeidallah, shook their heads at Bieber for being "self-obsessed" and narcissistic, seemingly taking little away from learning about the life and legacy of the young diarist, who died as a teen in a Nazi concentration camp in 1945.

But a few others came to Bieber's defense. Had Frank been born 70 years later, said one rabbi who's closely studied Frank's life, she would have likely been a "belieber," as Biebs' fans are called. Schloss, who was friendly with Frank while coming of age in Amsterdam and later became the step-daughter of Frank's father, Otto, agrees.

“She probably would have been a fan. Why not?" Schloss told the Telegraph. "He’s a young man and she was a young girl, and she liked film stars and music. They make a lot of fuss about everything that is connected with Anne Frank.”
