Poor Justin Bieber — the paparazzi never seem to leave him alone even when he’s looking for spirituality in the Holy Land.

Bieber, who stopped in Israel on his ‘My World’ tour, was pestered by paparazzi and took to Twitter to vent his super frustration about his spoiled trip.

‘amazing place...not a bad day. just wish got a little more space and privacy from the paps to enjoy this time with my family. Thanks’

But the tweets from Bieber, nominated for a Webby Award Tuesday for his ‘takeover’ of, began to get progressively more irritable as the trip continued.


‘im in the holy land and i am grateful for that. I just want to have the same personal experience that others have here,’ he wrote, later adding ‘You would think paparazzi would have some respect in holy places. All I wanted was the chance to walk where jesus did here in isreal.’

The paps continued to snap photos of the Canadian-bred crooner, much to his dismay. But this wasn’t the first time he’s lashed out against the persistent photographers. In February, he flipped off a paparazzo who wouldn’t leave him alone with girlfriend Selena Gomez.

‘They should be ashamed of themselves. Take pictures of me eating but not in a place of prayer, ridiculous,’ he tweeted about the Israeli paparazzi. ‘People wait their whole lives for opportunities like this, why would they want to take that experience away from someone.’

Eventually, the Biebs got so frustrated he said he would stay in his hotel the rest of the week.

‘u happy?’ he asked. ‘i want to see this country and all the places ive dreamed of and whether its the paps or being pulled into politics its been frustrating.’

Aww, so he does just want to be like everybody else. The flurry of tweets prompted his mega-fanbase to trend the hashtags ‘papsleavebiebsalone’ and ‘cheerupjustin’ on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Gomez, 18, was spotted with ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas, whom she dated last year — despite finally confirming her relationship with Bieber to New York radio station Z100.

‘I try to be a good person and a good friend to people. That’s something that’s very important to me. Nick is a very good friend. He’s a lovely guy, we’re good friends and I enjoy his company!’ the Kids’ Choice Award winner told Bop Magazine.

Gomez is keeping busy and staying faithful while the Biebs continues his world tour.

The star of Disney’s ‘Wizards of Waverly Place,’ who has previously collaborated with Katy Perry, will sing a track penned by Britney Spears on her album, slated for release in June. She’ll also be touring with Christina Grimmie this summer. And on July 1, she’ll be costarring in ‘Monte Carlo’ with ‘Gossip Girl’s’ Leighton Meester, Katie Cassidy and ‘Glee’s’ Cory Monteith. Tell us what you think of the trailer below.

Should the paparazzi have left the Biebs’ alone or is pestering him worth seeing those photos of him praying? Could he also have been venting frustration over the Gomez-Jonas rumors? Tell us in comments.
