LAS VEGAS – “The craft. The craft that I’m making. This is not a gimmick.” And so goes Justin Bieber’s acceptance speech for the Billboard Music Award’s Milestone honor. It’s a fan-voted award. “I’m an artist and I should be taken seriously. This other bull should not be spoken of.”
This, during a televised show that featured a performance for which Bieber was booed. Judging by Miley Cyrus’ announcement of his win — he was up against Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars — plus Taylor Swift’s reaction to PDA from on-and-off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez kissing her man, there are just some people who are less-than-impressed by the 19-year-old pop star.
