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.
