Bieber Not a Fan of Awards Shows

After performing at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, Justin Bieber took to Instagram and wrote about his dislike of music awards shows. He says that he finds them hallow and when he looks into the audience, all he sees is fake smiles.

In his Instagram post, Bieber stated:

“I don’t know about these award shows.. 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. I try to think of it as a celebration but can’t help feeling like people are rating and grading my performance. A lot of people in the audience there to be seem [sic] worried about how much camera time they will get or who they can network with. When I’m doing a regular show I feel they are there for the right reasons and to strictly have a good time! But these award shows seem so hollow. I get the premise is to award people for their accomplishments, but is it really? Because when I look in the audience I see a bunch of fake smiles so that when the camera hits them they look happy”

This isn’t the first time Bieber has taken to Instagram to talk about parts of his chosen career that make him uncomfortable. He has cancelled all future meet-and-greets for his current tour because they make him feel “drained and unhappy”. Bieber also mentioned earlier this month that he will not take photos with fans anymore because it makes him feel like a zoo animal.

The picture that Bieber chose to go along with Sunday’s tirade against awards shows shows a castle in the background with grazing sheep in the foreground. Perhaps a message about people who attend awards shows?

Sure there are people truly proud of others so I don't want to knock them I'm just looking at the vast majority. I just think to myself if I'm living my purpose I want the reward to be fulfillment. I'm getting awarded for the things that I'm doing and not for who I am which is understandable I know it would probably be hard to calculate and award someone's spirit lol. But When I do get these awards the temptation of putting my worth in what I do is so hard to fight!!!I am privileged and honored to be recognized by my peers in but in these settings I can't feel the recognition. There's an authenticity missing that I crave! And I wonder does anybody else.. Sorry not sorry about grammar it's not my strong point
