Justin Bieber has sparked controversy by writing a bizarre message in the Anne Frank House guestbook in Amsterdam.

The 'Baby' singer, who played a concert at nearby Arnhem last night (April 13), took time out to visit the museum on Friday, where he wrote in the guestbook that he hoped Anne Frank would have been a fan of his music.

Staff at the museum wrote on their Facebook page: "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'."

Bieber's naivety has angered many, with Kevin Garcia Leon writing, "That little idiot is way too full of himself. She's an important historical figure so show some respect," while Anastasia Finnigan-De Graeve wrote: "Glad he went, but, the last sentence is VERY self-serving. He missed the lessons of Anne totally."

In other Justin Bieber news, the singer has been criticised again after it was revealed that the administrative process to get his pet monkey out of quarantine could take months. Bieber's monkey, named Mally, is stuck in customs on the German border after he attempted to get the animal into the country without the correct legal documentation. It was reported that customs would look after the monkey for four weeks before placing it into care but it has subsequently transpired that as long as the administrative process is ongoing the pet will be kept in quarantine and kept away from other monkeys.
