Justin Bieber in Hot Water with Australian Officials

It should come to no surprise to anyone that when Justin Bieber goes anywhere, he leaves his mark, but on his trip to Australia this week he might have gone too far. After staying only a few days in the Gold Coast, the super sensation is in hot water once again, this time with Australian government officials.

The Canadian pop icon along with a select few of his entourage decided to leave their mark on the Gold Coast’s QT Hotel. Cartoon characters straight form Bieber’s imagination were spray painted in bright colours onto the exterior walls. Although hotel management consider it to be a “piece of art in appreciation of his stay,” the Gold Coast’s city council doesn’t quite see it that way.

Tom Tate, Gold Coast Mayor, is making it his mission to ensure that the graffiti does not stay, commenting that “the pictures may be on private property but they are in the public view” therefore placing it within his domain to formally request to have it removed.

In various interviews Tate has requested that the 19-year old trouble maker “come back and clean up his mess”. The Goal Coast’s city council has been working very hard at their anti-graffiti campaign and unfortunately for Bieber his art-work didn’t quite fit the bill.

Fans have started to think the mayor’s concerns are just a ploy to get a free show out of the Canadian mega-star by Tate having also said he would accept a free Christmas concert from Bieber instead to demonstrate to the community he was truly sorry.

Never one to shy away from the controversy of his actions and proud of his masterpiece, Bieber posted a photo of  the cartoons on Instagram for all his fans to see. The hotel itself, in a show of solidarity to their guest also changed their Facebook display picture to a photo of the art work as well.

Bieber is no doubt one of the most marketable images in pop-culture today (especially with his habit of ruffling feathers) so it comes as no surprise that the hotel is taking every possible action to defend their piece of the Bieber empire. Still receiving a wall of telephone calls from media and fans alike, the strategy is clearly working. In fact, the hotel has also decided since they would like to promote graffiti as an art form, they will be holding a contest for local artists to express themselves as well.

Fortunately for fans and the hotel, the attorney general in Australia has said that it is up to the hotel itself to lodge a complaint if it would like further legal actions to be put towards Bieber. With the way the media and marketing for the hotel is going so far, that’s looking pretty unlikely.

Upset locals is no stranger for the fan favourite, this incident is in a list of many from his tour this year. Having been in hot-water in Argentina after some questionable treatment of a flag, and potentially more graffiti charges in Brazil, the Australian mayor will just have to get in line.

Bieber has certainly left his mark all over the world, and now most recently Australia’s gold coast. Fans and authorities alike are anxious to see where he will make his next scene.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    Did you hear that the powers that run this world want to put a RFID microchip in our body? It will contain not only our bank accounts but our personal information, making us total slaves to the elite. This will cause us to lose even more of our privacy.

    Did you know that this RFID microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18?

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. It’s amazing that the Bible foretold a cashless society!

    Did you also hear that the Jewish people are in the process of bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible by the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and Apostle Paul? They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the whole world under a one world religion. They are not even hiding this information, but are actually promoting it. You can view videos about this on YouTube.

    When Donald Trump made Jerusalem captial of Israel in late December 2017, the Jewish people said this was a big step for them to build this Third Temple. They even printed a Temple coin with president Trump’s face on the front with king Cyrus'(the man who built the Second Temple in the Bible) face behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the Third Temple. They are selling these coins to raise money to build the Temple.

    People have been saying for many years that the end is near, but we needed not only the Third Temple, but also the technology for there to be a cashless society for the Mark of the Beast to be a reality.

    GOD BLESS, JESUS LOVES YOU!
