All the Goss from the American Music Awards
Awkward! For Selena Gomez that is. Justin Bieber reigned supreme at the American Music Awards in LA on 18 November bagging gongs for Favourite Male Artist, Artist of the Year and Favourite Pop/Rock Album but there was only one woman on his arm as he hit the red carpet – his mum!
MTV reported, “Usher kicked off the night. At the end of the performance, the camera cut to his protégé, Bieber, who sat in the audience with his mum after he reportedly broke up with Selena Gomez.”
Just days before the show, after a dinner together in LA, Justin and Selena had a blazing row which culminated in a red-faced Bieber being locked out of Selena’s home. How embarrassing. But presumably a few shiny statuettes helped.
Justin said, “I want to say this is for all the haters who thought maybe I was here for one or two years, but I feel like I’m going to be here for a long time.”
But it wasn’t all about the tunes. Favourite Rap/Hip-Hop Album winner Nicki Minaj sported a very unfortunate green gown, and even posing with fashion disaster Christina Aguilera couldn’t help her.
The night ended with an emotional Biebs dedicating his awards to his fans and his mum. Justin said, “I want to thank just everyone. This is amazing. It’s hard growing up with everyone watching me. As long as you guys keep believing in me I will always make you proud.” Sniff. We love you too, Justin, just promise us you’ll give that vest a rest from now on.
