Justin Bieber Should Take Some Notes On Beyonce’s Visit To The Anne Frank Museum

Beyonce tearing up GIFWhy don’t you grab a pen and paper and come pop a squat over here Justin Bieber, because we’re about to teach you how a real diva visits the Anne Frank Museum. Oh I’m sorry, are you bothered by me referring to you as a diva? Stop wearing sunglasses inside and answering depositions at your deposition like an uber-brat, and then come talk to me. Maybe I’ll reconsider.

Anyway. I can’t believe I’m even having to go through this with you, Bieberkins, but if there’s one person you should be learning from, it’s Beyonce, so throw on a clean diaper, sit down, and shut your mouth. Bey had two Mrs. Carter shows in the Netherlands on March 18th and 19th, so once those were done, she spent some time yesterday at the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam. You may know it as a moving tribute to a brave, eloquent young woman whose diary gave us a glimpse into a terrifying time…or as that place where Justin Bieber signed the guest book with a speculation that if she’d been a teenager in 2013 instead of the 1940s, that she would’ve been a Belieber.

Facepalm. Don’t…do that. Instead, try to do what Beyonce did, which was to take two tasteful Instagrams while she was in the museum, none of which speculated about  whether Anne would’ve liked or The Visual Album more, or posed with a kissy face next to her picture, or in any way suggested that she felt more important than the museum itself.

Because nobody is — not even Beyonce — so let’s just move through it calmly and respectfully and soak in as much history as we can before it’s time to go and sing with a terminally ill fan at one of your shows or egg a house. I mean whatever feels good to you, Justin.

      I am sort of over Beyoncé and her “humble awareness” (cousin of the humble brag) schtick. Why does she have to be in ANY of the photos she took at the museum with her perfectly affected “deep reflective” slash “I’m so moved by being here” faces and poses. Ehh …

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Yeahhh but when you think about it, would anyone have written it up today if she wasn’t in the photos? It definitely got the museum more publicity, and as stagey as the photos are, it’s tough for me to think of that as anything but a good thing. Y’know?

      • Penelope

        I mean the photos were on HER Instagram page. I think we would have still gotten the idea that she was there (she’s touring in the area etc.) but come on, of what value would a photo taken in the Anne Frank Museum be without Mrs. Carter in it? She woke up in there …

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I don’t think a photo of the place would have no value with her in it, don’t get me wrong. I just feel like that’s kind of her thing, especially if you look through the rest of her Instagram. Staged, professional-quality photos of herself. I think she meant well, but I understand that it could (and did) rub some people the wrong way.

      • Penelope

        It’s def her thing.

      • guest

        Totally agree! If she would have taken the photos without her in it I would be much more supportive. It all feels too much like an advertisement the way they are now. It feels like an inappropriate ad, even if it does give the museum publicity. Maybe Bey in front of the sign outside would’ve been better- I don’t know. This just doesn’t sit right with me.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        That’s totally fair. I personally like it, but I can understand your skepticism.

      When I toured the museum I was so caught up in the emotion of what I was seeing that pictures never even crossed my mind. While Bey is light years better than Bieber, I’m just not sure any pictures are necessary. How about a simple “I was moved to tears at the Anne Frank House today” or “Anne Frank was a remarkable human being”. I just don’t feel like the pictures were appropriate somehow. Maybe it’s me and I’m probably being oversensitive, but it just doesn’t sit right with me somehow.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        That’s totally fair. Bieber set the bar really low, so perhaps it’s my own insensitivity showing itself.

    • tiredofyouall

      if she had not posted pictures , there would be arguments that she didn’t
      feel the museum was important enough to share or that she was too important to
      do SOME of you EVER get tired of complaining? damned if she does, damned if she doesn’t ! once again, much ado about absolutely nothing !!
      MAYBE, just maybe, someone that had not been previously aware of ms franks and
      her plight might actually learn something – God forbid !!

      Well I think it’s good for a person like Beyonce who has tons of fans who will drink her bath water see this, many people may not really be aware of the tragedy of Anne Frank or her writings and I think whether this is a plot to show how great even Beyonce can look in a powder blue suit and top hat, I still feel the affect of the photo because I don’t really see Beyonce it makes me want to inform myself more about Anne Frank again and again so I think the photo is whatever you take from it. Plus I actually have grown to like Beyonce over the years I use to hate her especially about the DC debacle but now since her b-daddy is Jay and I call her Bey now, I like her so I could be bias…
