Justin Bieber Hounded by Paparazzi in Israel, Breaks Down on Twitter
For Justin Bieber, having paparazzi track his every move is a daily occurrence. But the paps overstepped their boundaries while Biebs was trying to connect with his faith in Israel, which sent the 17-year-old mega-star on a Twitter rant.
"Amazing place...not a bad day. just wish got a little more space and privacy from the paps to enjoy this time with my family. thanks," Bieber tweeted Monday, adding, "im in the holy land and i am grateful for that. I just want to have the same personal experience that others have here." But apparently, the paparazzi were still on the teen heart-throb's mind when he woke up Tuesday.
"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," Bieber said. While the 'Baby' singer understands the price of fame, he made it clear that he believes there are some places that he should be left alone. "They should be ashamed of themselves. 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," he tweeted to his nearly nine million followers. He continued, "Staying in the hotel for the rest of the week u happy?"
But it didn't stop there. Perhaps to explain himself further or knock down negative responses, Biebs went on that he was "super frustrated" by the situation and needed a little time to "vent and chill," adding that he was stepping away from Twitter to spend a little quality time with his family. "i want to see this country and all the places ive dreamed of and whether its the paps or being pulled into politics its been frustrating," he said. "im just excited at this pt to get on stage and perform. gonna take a little break from twitter and enjoy this time with my family until then."
Bieber is scheduled to play a show at Hayarkon Park in Tel Aviv on Thursday, April 14.
