NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL In a visit to Israel he says was spoiled by paparazzi and politics, Justin Bieber finally performed for hordes of screaming fans in Tel Aviv. The Canadian teen idol took to Twitter to complain of being "super frustrated" by intrusive photographers ruining his visits to holy sites, leaving him needing "time to vent and chill." He tweeted to the paps: "Staying in the hotel for the rest of the week u happy?" The super star also took time to refute media reports that a meeting with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu fell through after Bieber allegedly refused to meet with invited children from a region affected by enemy rockets. "I want to see this country and all the places I've dreamed of and whether its the paps or being pulled into politics it's been frustrating," he tweeted. But his army of teen fans were unfazed by any politics marring the trip, being more concerned with the star's music and hotness. SOUNDBITE Justin Bieber Fan, Shakhar Levy, saying (English): "We are came to see Justin Bieber because he's so hot and we like his songs and we hope that we enjoy the concert." SOUNDBITE Justin Bieber Fan, Adi El Kawi, saying (English): "I came here today because I love Justin Bieber, and he's hot, and his songs are great, I love to hear them. And the show will be great, and I love this, I want to see that." Doug MacLaurin, Reuters.
