Justin Bieber's privacy rant on Israel trip

Justin Bieber has vowed to spend his time in Israel holed up in his hotel room after he became infuriated by local photographers documenting his visits to famous landmarks.

The teenage pop star jetted to the Middle East on Monday (11Apr11) ahead of planned shows in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem later this week (beg11Apr11).

Bieber planned to spend his days off sightseeing and visiting tourist attractions, but he has become frustrated by the large groups of star-spotters who have been following him as he goes about his trip.

And he's now abandoned plans for any more sightseeing and vowed to stay at his hotel until showtime.

In a series of posts on his page, he writes, "Amazing place... Not a bad day. Just wish (I) got a little more space and privacy... to enjoy this time with my family. Thanks... All I wanted was the chance to walk where Jesus did here in Isreal (sic)... They should be ashamed of themselves. Take pictures of me eating but not in a place of prayer... People wait their whole lives for opportunities like this, why would they want to take that experience away from someone."

He later adds, "Staying in the hotel for the rest of the week u happy?"
