Justin Bieber’s Israel Concert Continued Despite Controversies

Justin Bieber took over Tel Aviv grounds in Israel despite his involvement in political controversies and paparazzi intrusion, which spoiled his three-day vacation.

As part of his world tour, the young pop star was set to perform on an outdoor concert in Tel Aviv, one of the most populated cities in Israel.

He decided to spend the week visiting holy places and sightseeing. But, he was besieged by his adoring fans and swarmed by the country’s aggressive press media.

On his Twitter account, Bieber complained he was “super frustrated” and spent the rest of the week in the hotel. Newspaper reports did not improve his mood either.

The report says a proposed meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel did not push through after the Canadian singer allegedly declined to meet with the invited children affected by violence from south of Israel.

However, Bieber’s camp said the meeting was never finalized. Bieber’s spokesman said the plans to meet with the children and Israeli’s prime minister was unfortunately impossible in the end.

Yet, Bieber had invited children from the region to be his special guests on his show held on Thursday.

Bieber said in Twitter that he wanted to visit the country and see all the places that he had dreamed of. However, he said he is displeased to be pulled into politics along with the intrusion of paparazzi.

Still, thousands of young girls showed up in his concert despite the week-long controversies in his tour in Israel. Many of them waved signs around and begged their moms to buy posters or t-shirts of their heartthrob idol.

MTV Revives “Punk’d” with New Host, Justin Bieber

MTV is bringing back their prank show, Punk’d, with Justin Bieber’s hosting. According to the New York magazine’s entertainment blog, the 16-year old pop star has been tapped to host the return of the show.

Ashton Krutcher hosted the show back when it was first shown in 2003 until it retired in 2007. Today, as the show will be brought to life again, he will continue to be part Punk’td as its executive producer through the Katalyst Entertainment banner.

The concept of Punk’d involves tricking lists of celebrities with hidden cameras to film everything that happens. Justin Timberlake once cried in one of its episodes when he believed the government was repossessing everything that he owns.

If Bieber agrees to be part of the show, he will be hosting the MTV prank show. As mentioned by the Vulture, Justin Bieber will probably host the first few episodes while wearing the usual trucker hat, before introducing the prank clips.

Bieber was the first artist to ever chart the Billboard’s Hot 100 with seven songs. Currently, the teenage singer is on its My World 2.0 concert tour. He is also preparing for the release of his biopic/concert film, Valentine’s Day, hoping to make its way to acting along with Will Smith.

Since Kutcher’s retirement from “Punk’d” in 2007, MTV has been looking forward to bring the show back, as reported by the Vulture, New York Magazine.
