  •  "I'm An Artist, And I Should Be Taken Seriously" (9+ / 0-)

    Says the dude in the diaper pants.

    From Billboard: Justin Bieber Booed at Billboard Music Awards

    Fifty-seven seconds. That's how much time elapsed between CeeLo Green announcing that Justin Bieber had captured the first-ever Milestone Award, presented by Chevrolet at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, and Bieber actually saying something into the microphone onstage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. In between were some perplexingly uncomfortable seconds... "I'm 19 years old… I'm 19 years old," Bieber declared, right hand on his heart, when those 57 seconds finally came to a close. "I think I'm doing a pretty good job."

    The next movement of Bieber's impromptu acceptance speech was defensive without being seething, hurried but not without talking points: "And basically, from my heart I really just want to say, it should really be about the music. It should be about the craft that I'm making, and… this is not a gimmick, this is not a gimmick. I'm an artist, and I should be taken seriously. All this other bull should not be spoken of." He then rattled off a laundry list of thank yous, and scurried offstage.

    Also, the queen of the breakup songs, Taylor Swift, will never ever kiss Justin Bieber... like ever.

    From Mashable:

    Taylor Swift often publicly airs her grievances when it comes to ex-boyfriends, but apparently the singer is also OK with showing the world how she feels about her friends' old flames.

    At Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards, Swift saw best friend Selena Gomez getting a kiss on the cheek from on-and-off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber. Swift's reaction was priceless.
