Justin Bieber is once again in trouble.

The singer, currently touring Australia, raised the ire of a local council after spray-painting the wall of a Gold Coast hotel with cartoon faces.

The QT Gold Coast was naturally excited with the artwork and posted the image on its Facebook along with a status thanking the singer.

The Gold Coast City Council took a different view, however, and ordered the removal of the masterpiece due to its zero- tolerance policy on graffiti.

The mayor Tom Tait described the Biebs' antics as “really silly” but offered an olive branch to the pop-star.

"Just come and clean it up and we'll be happy with you,” he said.

“Alternatively come and sing at our mayoral Christmas carols on 7 December for an hour and I'll let you go."
