Justin Bieber shocked everyone by breaking down on stage at the Video Music Awards this year. The singer then made an appearance on yesterday’s episode of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and spoke about the reason for the teardrops on his metaphorical guitar (I love Taylor Swift, okay).
It was so overwhelming for me, everything… I missed some cues so I was a little disappointed at that. Honestly, I just wasn’t expecting them to support me in the way they did. Last time I was at an awards show, I was booed. I think it’s just like I’ve worked so hard at this album and at becoming the man I want to become, and then stepping into situations, you just can’t help but feel judged. So I was just feeling judged and wanting to win so badly, and wanting to do what I love so badly that I just put everything on the line. And I think that that was what was so special about the emotional moment at the end, that it was authentic. It was real. I was really just wanting it so bad.
Aww, but we think your VMA performance hit all the right notes, Justin!
