Last night, June 19, 2013, Justin Bieber attended the Billboard Music Awards, and was presented with the first-ever Milestone Award… because The Biebs has been on the pop planet since 2009, and four years is, like, a really, really big milestone.
Justin Bieber’s Speech At The 2013 Billboard Awards
After Cee-Lo Green presented J-to-the-Bieber with his much-deserved award, JB was met with cheers and jeers (i.e. he was booed, for, like, a good minute, according to attendees). Then, perhaps feeling provoked by the crowd’s obvious disdain, or, perhaps just feeling like a general toolbag, Justin went on to give the douchiest acceptance speech of all time. Seriously, JB’s PR team has some clean-up work to do.
Justin Bieber’s Billboard Awards Speech: Wow. Just Wow.
It seems Justin should’ve never let his swagger coach leave (because, apparently, “swagger coach” is a real-life job that someone can be paid a pretty penny for), because this speech is the anti-swag. Someone alert Swagger Security — it seems we have a new “white devil” living among us.
Wearing a kinda-leathery-looking black shirt and pants combo that looked like JB was sprayed with a super soaker, and aviator sunglasses covering the windows to his soul through the great majority of his speech, Justin gave the BBMA audience the most self-important, “I am God’s gift to man” speech ever:
I think it’s, uhh… I’m 19 years old… I’m 19 years old, I- I- I think I’m doin’ a pretty good job.
And basically, f-from my heart, I- I- I really just wanna say, it should, it should, it should really be about the music, it should be about the craft, the craft that I’m, that I’m making.
Ah, this is not a, this is not a gimmick. I’m not, I’m not a gi-, this is not a gimmick. I- I’m an, I’m an artist, and I- I- I should be taken seriously, and- and- and this, all this other bull should not be spoken of.
Umm… I wanna thank my manager, Scooter Braun, I wanna thank my family at home, I wanna thank my mother and my, and my father, I wanna thank Jesus Christ. [Crowd cheers]
Mom, I love you so much. Dad, I love you. Little brother and sister, I love you so much. Thank you guys so much. Fans, you’re incredible!
