Justin Bieber is not about that awards shows life, despite winning Top Male Artist and receiving a glowing response to his “Sorry” performance at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night. The pop sensation took to Instagram on Monday to share a lengthy post about why he thinks that awards shows are “hollow.”
In the photo caption, Bieber detailed how he really feels about attending awards shows, holding nothing back: “No disrespect to anybody at any of the shows or the people running it. Nothing but love for you guys and your support. But I don’t feel good when I’m there nor after,” he said. “I try to think of it as a celebration but can’t help feeling like people are rating and grading my performance.”
Instagram has been a outlet of late for transparent asides for the 22-year-old singer, who has been using the social media platform for everything from revealing a face tattoo to telling fans that he will no longer be taking pictures with them.
