  • A memo to Justin Bieber: think before you speak. Or write.
    Where Bieber goes, controversy seems to follow these days, and a recent visit the teen made to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam was no exception. Upon leaving, Bieber left an entry in the site's guest book that, while seemingly well-intentioned, makes the singer seem, well, tone-deaf.
    Justin Bieber and other child stars gone bad
    "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber," Bieber wrote, according to the Anne Frank House's Facebook page - using the term applied to his hordes of (mostly teenage and female) fans. Really, Justin?!
    According to the Anne Frank House, Bieber visited the house with friends and his security team Friday night, before performing a concert in Arnhem on Saturday. He spent more than an hour in the museum.

    Frank, of course, died in a concentration camp in 1945 at age 15 after she and her family were captured by Nazis in Amsterdam.
    Do you find Bieber's entry offensive?
