Along with news of the Believe artist's visit, the museum relayed what Bieber wrote in the guestbook: "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."

A BBC correspondent based in the Netherlands confirmed with the Amsterdam Museum that the visit and note were real. 

Bieber is scheduled to play three tour dates in Oslo, Norway, this week before playing at Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Saturday, April 20.
