You Have To Read This Open Letter Justin Bieber Wrote About Award Shows

"There's an authenticity missing that I crave," says the lip-syncer.

Looks like despite how often he performs during award shows, Justin Bieber isn't a big fan of them. The singer shared his true feelings via Instagram on Monday, writing a lengthy letter in the caption of a travel photo.

"I don't know about these award shows," Justin began. "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."

"A lot of people in the audience there to [me] seem worried about how much camera time they will get or who they can network with," he continued. "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 am privileged and honored to be recognized by my peers but in these settings I can't feel the recognition. There's an authenticity missing that I crave," he wrote.

If more authenticity is desired, maybe Justin Bieber should sing rather than lip-sync. And is it shady for Justin to post this, just one day after he performed at the Billboard Awards and took home two awards of his own? Check out Justin's full letter below.

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 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. 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
