    Why is Justin so inarticulate. I’m not trying to be mean. I always cringe listening to his speeches.


    More importantly, why is Justin winning awards?

  • Lea

    damn, what happened to usher?

  • Marie

    He still looks like an awkward 12 year old.

  • samuel

    Exactly. Why on earth is this loser untalented winning an award?? mah….

  • Jonas

    Bieber is a social artist what a joke I’m be happy when this lesbian’s career is over.

  • Junko

    I can’t believe he beat out Lady Gaga. In my country, no one even knows his name. Everyone knows her….

  • Gossipgirl

    I am stunned at how much beriberi looks like a 13 y/o. There must be some drug to arrest development, because he does not look any where near 18. It is very creepy.

  • Gossipgirl

    Sorry, I meant “Bieber”.

    @XOXO: To stop cringing don’t listen.

  • Shanice

    I find it strange that you guys are using ‘lesbian’ and ‘child’ as an insult towards a teenage boy.

  • [~Fug Face Man!ston~]

    …bieber’s the new vanilla ice. ahahahahahahaa

  • Elic

    @Shanice: my younger bro is 13 years old. he looks more mature/masculine than Justin(a).

  • Jo

    @Elic: Does your bro know his times tables?

  • John


    if the manager got money to bringing in to the business, people can just give him any irrelevance awards, doesn’t really matter what kind of categories is that. Entertainment is about business and money.

  • Burl

    Congratulations to Justin Bieber! all the best and more power.
