Bieber SLAMS Fake Awards After Looking Bored At Billboards

Justin Bieber has unleashed into a long attack on 'fake' award shows after he was criticized for looking bored at yesterdays Billboards.

The Sorry singer went on a lengthy rant on Instagram where he called the criticism ''hollow'' and slammed other artists for acting up to the cameras.

He thrilled his own fans with a performance at the awards and was handed two gongs but was then panned by some onlookers for looking 'bored' and 'yawning' throughout P!nk's set.

Writing on Instagram, Bieber said ''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.''

He continues on to say ''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."

He the went onto question whether other artists were being authentic in their excitement for the awards ceremony "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."

The rant gets longer with Bieber saying the bashes should reward stars for ''who they are'' rather than what they do.

He said ''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 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
