At this point I really do think he was saying he thought she was a good person, just like all the beliebers are good people, and he hoped that he would be worthy of her notice. He apparently spent an hour in the museum - that's a long time for a celebrity run through - and had wanted to visit it for some time. He's not stupid, so it seems impossible that he did not fully understand who she was and her importance.
Whatever JB hoped to get across, he did it incredibly poorly. To me, he sounds arrogant, self-centered, and ignorant -- whether he really is or not.
"When I was poor and I complained about inequality people said I was bitter, now I'm rich and I complain about inequality they say I'm a hypocrite. I'm beginning to think they just don't want inequality on the agenda because it is a real problem that needs to be addressed." - Russell Brand
Does anyone think he even knew who Anne Frank was before he went to the museum?
There is a shallow culture strain among teenagers like never before. The lack of common sense blows my mind.
It seems like the shallow are getting shallower. Society can pretty much tell them what to do as long as they're told it's cool. Which reminds me of the girls who were going to cut themselves if Bieber didn't stop smoking weed. That being said, I do know there are very smart kids out there who do know better. I'm not saying all teens are this way, just a lot of them.

Bless. I had the opportunity to visit the Anne Frank house - they have preserved the walls where she had cut out pictures of movie stars & pasted them to the wall. There was a picture of Sonja Henie. This will sound very dramatic, but I was brought to tears just looking at that wall.
I don't see it as he's a bad person for not taking Anne Frank's story seriously, I just think he's an idiot. Who writes things like that on a sign in book? But I have a low threshold of tolerance for people who consistently make everything about themselves. And he managed make the Anne Frank museum about himself?? Wow, that's amazing. I guess when you are a celebrity it can be difficult to keep perspective (not impossible though).
