Justin Bieber

Hotel to Mayor:

Screw You, We're Keeping Bieb's Art

EXCLUSIVE

1204-justin-bieber-mayor-australia-tmz-ipadThe Australian hotel tagged by Justin Bieber is going to war against the city's mayor ... defying hizzoner's order to remove it, and going so far as to PROTECT it from being cleaned up.

TMZ broke the story ... Justin covered a wall at the QT Gold Coast with some colorful graffiti monsters -- angering Mayor Tom Tate, who then sent a videotaped message to the "pop princess" demanding he clean it up.

Justin hasn't responded to the mayor, but now hotel officials have -- telling us they're so proud of the Bieb's handiwork ... they're covering it with a black tarp so no one can remove it.

Officially, we're told the cover-up is there to shield the graffiti from rain and sun ... but clearly it also sends a message to roving do-gooders: HANDS OFF BIEBER'S MASTERPIECE.

P.S.
Justin must get enormous credit for NOT responding publicly to the extreme sarcastic provocation in the Mare's video - he doesn't stoop to your filthy LOW LEVEL !!!

IF JUSTIN WOULD HAVE TAGGED TATE'S FUTURE HOTEL, instead of QT hotel, then there would have been no problem! Because its all about MONEY and grabbing the customers away from the competitors?
.
just wondering what will be the outcome of Tom's "conflict of interest" and whether he gets a "hotel high-rise permit" from his own City Council?

Private property owner exercising their legal rights. Of course we can't have that here in North America! This was a case of defacing private property, because the hotel owns the property not the city. Graffiti is recognized as a art form, not matter how controversial.
