Justin Bieber Explains Why He Broke Down In Tears At The VMAs (VIDEO)


Justin Bieber explains tearful performance at VMAs

Justin Bieber appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night, explaining why he cried at the end of his 2015 MTV VMAs performance.

The 21-year-old singer also had a fun drum battle with Questlove of The Roots and performed a country version of his latest song.

Bieber talked about performing his new song “What Do You Mean?” and talked about getting emotional on stage.

Justin said, “I, just, um, it was just so overwhelming for me, everything. Just the performance. I missed some cues, so I was a little disappointed at that.”

He said he was rather shocked by “just everyone, and just their support.”

Justin continued, “I was honestly, let me breathe for a second. I just wasn’t expecting them [the VMAs audience] to support me in the way they did.”

The singer also admitted, “Last time I was at an awards show I was booed. So…I think it’s just like – I’ve worked so hard at this album. I worked so hard at just becoming the man I want to become.”

He continued, “And then like stepping into situations, you just can’t help but feel judged. So, I was just feeling judged and just wanting to win so badly, and just wanting to do what I love so badly, that I just put everything on the line.

“I think that was, what was so special about the emotional moment at the end — it was authentic, it was real. It was like, I was really like just wanting it so bad. I don’t know. I’m just ranting now!”
