  • Bieberlover

    Aww jb deserved it

  • Nicole

    Congratulation Justin you deserve it

  • Reallyyyyyyy

    I’m not liking Justin’s work very much right now…he’s becoming FAR, FAR, FARRRRR too worldly….but then again, what was to be expected with Usher as his mentor? Justin needs to remember his FIRST LOVE…and it’s not his family, Scooter, Usher or Selena! Revelation 2: 4 , 5 4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
    5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

    • oxBelieberxo

      He’s having a big presentation/sayings for it because there are allot of people to thank.. God, manager, usher, fans, mom, siblings and everyone else.

  • iyana luvs justin bieber

    I like how he works very hard towards his goals

  • Belieber 4 LIFEEEE


  • Bronzed

    He can at least be humble about it, and not so bratty…everyone is going to have hatera but it takes a big person to just deal with it.

  • ivan

    Some look at superficial things such as how he dresses and don’t appreciate what an incredible person he is to accomplish so much coming from poverty-and he is only 18!

    Love how he tells the haters- that’s so frickin’ funny! I know that you gotta be humble about it; but sometimes you just have to say it. Come on, he’s had a rough couple of weeks, let him go for it. And congrats on the awards, J! Deserve them.
