The Beijing’s Bureau Culture said in a very statement released that the young singer is a talented singer, however he’s also a controversial Singer. it was said that it’s inappropriate to allow entertainers with bad behaviours.
China has added the name of the youngster to the list of Hostile Foreign Forces ranking somewhere below the Dalai Lama and Taiwanese separatists.
The news broke out when a follower of the young singer poised the ministry a question why no venues have been scheduled in mainland china with the singer about to start an Asia-wide tour.
Justin Bieber is indeed “talented at singing” came the reply, but nevertheless it might be inappropriate to allow him to perform because of a number of incidents of “bad behaviours. It didn’t truly elaborate on exactly which of Mr Bieber’s run-ins with the law.
Although he was allowed to tour China in 2013, the pop star joins a long list of musicians who have also been equally blacklisted. Most though, like the British band Oasis and the U.S. cluster Maroon 5, as a result of perceived political statements, rather than on the grounds of bad behaviours.
This hasn’t been the first time the ‘Love me’ singer has caused controversy in Asia.
Back then in 2014, Bieber caused chaos on social media after he shared a picture of himself visiting the controversial Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo. The shrine honours fallen courageous warriors and pays homage to convicted battles criminals however, down in China and South Korea, the shrine is seen as a symbol of Japan not being sorry for its empire’s past.
But despite the singer taking the photo down and apologising, the Chinese were very annoyed. Their foreign minister’s spokesperson said he hoped the singer had left Yasukuni with “a clear understanding of Japan’s history of invasion and militarism and of the source of Japan’s militarism”.
The pop star will be performing in Asia as part of his Purpose World Tour from September, and will be playing in Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore and Dutch East Indies.
