If you tuned in for last weekend’s MTV VMAs, you were probably shocked to see Justin Bieber break down in tears following his performance. But now, we are learning just what was running through the pop star’s mind when he completely let go.
Bieber stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday and opened up about getting emotional on stage. Ironically, the singer almost had waterworks while talking about his waterworks. “It was just so overwhelming for me, everything, the performance. I missed some cues, so I was a little disappointed with that. And just the support. I just wasn’t expecting them to support me in the way they did,” Bieber said.
He continued, “Last time I was at an awards show, I was booed.”
The 21-year-old went on to express how he just wants do well in the business and not be judged. “I’ve worked so hard at this album, I’ve worked so hard at just becoming the man I want to become and stepping into situations you just can’t help but feel judged. So I was just feeling judged, wanting to win so badly, wanting to do what I love so badly, I just put everything on the line. And I think that what was so special about the emotional moment at the end. It was authentic, it was real. I was really just wanting it so bad.”
Honestly, it’s nice to see this side of Justin.
