Justin Bieber banned from Beijing for "bad behavior"

(CNTV)    10:58, July 22, 2017

The Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber has been banned from performing in Beijing for his "bad behavior".

The Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture responded to fans' queries about the cancellation of a Bieber performance, saying: "He is a very talented but controversial young foreign singer. His series of misbehavior while living abroad and during his performances in China has caused public resentment."

The bureau wrote that it made the move "in order to regulate the domestic entertainment market and purify its environment" and that "it is inappropriate to bring in performers who has bad behavior."

Global Times outlined Bieber's bad behavior as "racing cars, taking drugs, and smashing eggs." One of his most famous blunders is that he wrote in a guestbook at the Anne Frank Museum that he hoped she would have been a "belieber", a nickname for one of the performer's fans.

This well-known bad boy's reputation was tarnished in China for visiting to Tokyo's Yasukuni Shrine, where some of Japan's war dead – including some of the worst World War II war criminals – are buried.

"We hope that as Justin Bieber matures, he can continue to improve his own words and actions, and truly become a singer beloved by the public," the bureau said at the end of the statement.
