(Newser) – What led an Australian mayor to label Justin Bieber's behavior "really, really silly?" A Pacman ghost and other fluorescent and cartoony graffiti, which was sprayed on a hotel wall at the posh QT Hotel on Queensland's Gold Coast in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. The Biebs had just played a sold-out show in Brisbane, and reports allege that he and his entourage tagged the wall then left the mess—including cans of spray paint—behind.

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate had a graffiti removal kit sent to the hotel so Bieber could clean it up, though the singer is believed to have already headed to Sydney. "If a normal person did that they'd be serving 80 to 100 hours of community service," Tate said, per the AFP, adding, "I know he's got beautiful eyes. I've got some goggles for him, and some gloves because I know he doesn't want to get his hands dirty." But the hotel doesn't seem so incensed. In fact, the AP reports that it says it gave Bieber the OK to do it, and called him "a lovely young guy."
