Justin Bieber is all smiles while making an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday evening (September 2) in New York City.
The 21-year-old singer opened up about why he cried after his performance at the VMAs over the weekend.
“It was so overwhelming for me, everything… I missed some cues so I was a little disappointed at that,” Justin said. “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,” Justin continued. “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.”
