Bieber ‘spray paints hotel wall’
Justin Bieber has angered the Mayor of Brisbane with new graffiti.
The singer allegedly returned to his hotel after a gig and covered an outside wall with pictures of monsters, reports TMZ.
According to the website, Justin was caught on camera but no charges have yet been made against the pop star.
“They’re well aware of the illicit artwork .. but so far, no formal complaint has been made -- and the GC mayor says he's ordered a cleanup crew for the wall,” writes the website.
According to other outlets, the hotel is actually happy to have Justin’s art on their wall. There is even speculation he was asked to do it.
"This piece of art is now available to be viewed by fans of the artist and we believe that it is a wonderful addition to the colourful Gold Coast arts scene," the Surfer’s Paradise hotel told UK newspaper The Guardian.
Unfortunately for the hotel, Mayor Tom Tait has apparently demanded they paint over the neon graffiti.
He even suggested Justin return to the town and put on a free Christmas concert to make up for his vandalism.
"The last thing we want is to have graffiti glorified and more young people thinking it’s a cool thing to do," he told the Australian Associated Press.
"It might be on private land but it's in prominent public view," a council spokesman added. "The mayor will be contacting our compliance officers today to have a notice issued to the hotel to clean it up."
