• Justin Bieber's Friday visit to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam drew criticism to the pop singer, who wrote in the house's guest book: "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber." In spite of the self-centeredness of Bieber's observation, representatives for the Anne Frank House called the visit "positive," and hoped it inspires Bieber's fans to read "The Diary of Anne Frank," her account of hiding from the Nazis during World War II.
