LOS ANGELES — Justin Bieber cried following his performance on Sunday during the MTV Video Music Awards. On Wednesday, Bieber explained to Jimmy Fallon why he got emotional.
“It was just so overwhelming for me,” Bieber said.
“Honestly, I just wasn’t expecting for them to support me in the way that they did. Last time I was at an awards show, I was booed,” he continued. “I think it’s just like, I’ve worked so hard at this album and worked so hard becoming the man I wanna become, and stepping into situations you just can’t help but feel judged, and just wanting to win so badly and just wanting to do what I loved so badly, that I just put everything on the line.”
Bieber also announced his new album will be released on Nov. 13.
