Justin Bieber dedicates AMA award to ‘haters who thought I was just here for 1 or 2 years’

I have to admit that I didn’t watch the AMAs other than clips online. Like Kaiser, I don’t really care for all the endless music awards shows. A newly-single Justin Bieber dominated the show, which we’ll get to in a moment. He smartly took his mom with him as his date, since things have gone south in his on-off relationship with Selena Gomez. Justin gave his mom a kiss on the red carpet and thanked her profusely during his speeches. It was all rather sweet and cute. Not cute: his really awful quilted(!) Hammer pants, long pleather top and sweater cardigan combo, paired with red loafers with spikes on them. This kid can’t dress himself, but he keeps trying.

Bieber won three big awards last night: Artist of The Year, Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Pop/Rock Album, for Believe. He also performed two songs: an acoustic version of “As Long as You Love Me,” and “Beauty and The Beat,” which is his new single featuring Nicki Minaj. You can see those performances on Hollywood Life if you’re interested. The NY Daily News had a nice recap of the night, so I’ll quote them here:

Bieber won favorite pop/rock male artist in the first award handed out at Sunday’s show and gave a shout-out to those who didn’t think he would last on the music scene.

“I want to say this is for all the haters who thought I was just here for one or two years. I feel like I’m going to be here for a very long time,” he said.

He also won favorite pop/rock album for his platinum-selling third album, “Believe.” He gave a stripped down, acoustic performance of “As Long As You Love Me,” then transitioned to the dance-heavy “Beauty and a Beat,” where Minaj joined him onstage, grinding with the teen for a few seconds.

Minaj, who wore three different wigs and four outfits throughout the night, repeated her AMAs wins from last year, picking up trophies for favorite rap/hip-hop artist and album for “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.” She was in an all-white get-up, including fur coat and pink hair when she performed her new song “Freedom.” The scene was ghostly and snowy, as a choir — also in white — joined her onstage. One background singer stole the performance, belting semi-high notes as Minaj looked on.

As Bieber won his second award, he was kissed on the neck by Jenny McCarthy, who presented the award.

“Wow. I feel violated right now,” he said, laughing.

“I did grab his butt,” McCarthy said backstage. “I couldn’t help it. He was just so delicious. So little. I wanted to tear his head off and eat it.”
Bieber’s red and black outfit seemed to be the night’s theme, as Taylor Swift and Usher wore similar ensembles.

[From The NY Daily News]

Jenny McCarthy was ridiculous grabbing and macking all over Bieber. Imagine a 40 year-old male star doing that to an 18 year-old female singer and then saying he “couldn’t help it,” she “was just so delicious.” Why are they letting McCarthy give out awards in the first place? She just drags the whole ceremony down.

Here’s a video of Justin winning the Male Artist of the Year for the Pop/Rock category. He talks about his haters at :55. This was his first award, so you know he practiced this haters speech ahead of time. (Here are links to YouTube videos of Justin winning artist of the year and favorite album. The Jenny McCarthy debacle is in the favorite album video.)

I have to mention this performance that’s getting a lot of buzz, it’s Psy doing Gangnam Style with a Too Legit to Quit mashup with MC Hammer. (Hammer comes in at 3:00) Kaiser loves Psy and she clued me in to this. Words cannot express how awesome this performance and mashup are. I hope that Psy is way more than a one hit wonder in the US, he’s incredible. It’s also nice to see Hammer back on stage.

    I happen to catch the show but didn’t watch it through.. I like the part when he grabbed his mom by the hand.. She was like no what are doing and her look on stage was priceless..
    As for comment to the haters well everyone has those…
    The show had some good performances from the parts I saw

  2. Ms Kay says:

    Wearing diapers pants and slippers.. He was all ready to go to bed once passed the curfew.

    And LOL at him contracting his tattooed arm “ooooh look at me I’m a man..!”.. Whatever his face is still as feminine!

    • erika says:

      and I say to you JBeaver…

      “to all the gals who thought Justin would outgrow his baby face/wee dong/lesbian “boys dont cry” Douche Protege Inspired by Usher look by age 18″

      now, here’s your *#&#^@ award (insert middle finger)

  3. Saphana says:

    looks like he crapped his diapers.

    good thing about bringing his mom is that height wise he looks like a tall guy next to her.

  4. Winnie says:

    Loved the mashup, but hate all the crowd shots of people who know they are on camera. So annoying.

  5. bettyrose says:

    He makes a good point. Who woulda thunk it? But it won’t last that much longer, so he should really start marketing whatever face cream he’s using.

    • V4Real says:

      Justin you can call me a hater because I hate your music. The only thing that is keeping you around are the teenage girls that have very little taste in good music and they think you’re cute. Once their fascination wears off and they have somewhat mutured you will be one of those where are they now artist.

      Remember Arron Carter and Jesse McCartney; where are they now.

  6. Summer says:

    Ugh…. grow the f up, Justin.

  7. KellyinSeattle says:

    More like all the haters who think he dresses and acts like a one or two year old, with diapers 🙂
    Ruby red slippers; “There’s no place like home”. Go home, Justin, and hang it up. He looks like a complete ass. I wouldn’t mind him so much if his ego wasn’t so huge.

  8. Jenna says:

    Girlfriend, please. They’re always be some tween heart-throb for girls that age to swarm over and buy music for. It’s not like he’s this great musical act that came out of nowhere. Calm down.

  9. Relli says:

    OMG that Psy and MC Hammer video is amazing! Who knew MC Hammer could still move like that… WOW!

  10. judyjudy says:

    Quilted hammer pants. That’s all I need to know.

    • erika says:

      OMG OMG……

      sorry! i was so damn EXCITED i couldnt type!


      too legit baby…that was HARD ON! i gotta me a hammer mc psy HARD RAP ON!


  11. Eleonor says:

    Did Hammer got his pants back??

  12. Minty says:

    Spare me, douche. It’s a freakin’ AMA, not a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

    You are your generation’s Leif Garrett or Aaron Carter. When your fangirls finish puberty you will be irrelevant. You will be replaced by the next overhyped flash in the pan, because you certainly don’t have the natural talent and charm of a young Michael Jackson, qualities that could establish a long career.

    Humility goes a long way too, entitled punk.

  13. Michelle says:

    Your owl tattoo is just so manly Justin. I’m beyond tired of this fool. He sucks.

  14. Vivian says:

    Only performances I really liked was Psy, Kelly C., No Doubt and Pink’s. As for JBoy winning all those awards…ugh; his ego is big enough– now he’ll believe even more that he has real talent, when he has minimal

  15. Riana says:

    Well good for him, he does get a lot of hate for no reason but eh…that’s life.

    Psy is the US’s first major taste of K-Pop. I’m torn. On the one hand I’m glad people KNOW there is a K-Pop, on the other I’m afraid people will assume all K-Pop music and groups are like him and not give any credit to the more serious groups. Of course some of the best groups are on their breaks while he’s getting all the glory (argh) but Psy is awesome.

    • OMSS says:

      I feel the sort of the same about K-pop, but Wonder Girls nearly blew-up in the States. I think it will open the door for other K-pop artists and for other artist from that side of the world.

  16. Tiffany says:

    I watched The Dust Bowl on PBS and then Homeland. Yeah I am a dork.

  17. DeltaJuliet says:

    Yeah, yeah, he lasted longer than a lot of us thought but give him 10 more years. 5 even. He doesn’t have the talent to parlay into an adult act. He’ll be as broke as Hammer.

    I just can’t get over that there are STILL no signs of puberty with this guy.

    • Veruca says:

      I know, right? I’ve been commenting on the lack of puberty for awhile now.

      It’s really disturbing to me.

      Who am I kidding? Bieber’s existence disturbs me.

  18. hannah says:

    I wouldn’t bet on it, Biebs.

  19. Madriani's Girl says:

    No way he was born with a dong. I loathe this little douchnozzle.

    • Pandy says:

      i just happened to be walking by the tv (doing laundry) when he was walking up to the stage. All I could think was silky tank top, twinset and pearls. God, so femme looking! Ew.

  20. Ok says:

    I don’t really pay much attention to Biebs. But I was stunned to see how young and pretty his mom is. At first glance I thought it was a teenage girl as his date. She looks like she is about 30

    Ahhhhh genetics. I envy women who look younger than they really are. I gotta go home and touch up my dye-job.

  21. RN says:

    It was SO worth clicking on a Bieber post to find that gem of a video featuring Psy and Hammer. Damn, Hammer can still pull it off. I feel so energized right now. Thanks!

    • Izzy says:

      Seriously, I might be the biggest dork on the planet right now, but that was the most effin’ awesome mash-up I’ve ever seen or heard.

      Nerd, party of one!

  22. erika says:

    i feel dissed….

    what about the haters who just think you’ll be around for 2 years and 5 months…?

    get back to me when you’ve grown some body hair.

    and get some eye glasses…you’re squinting all the time.

    • Ok says:

      Don’t tell him to get glasses. Don’t you remember the really thick rimmed HUGE black frames glasses he was wearing for awhile. I swear they came down to his chin.

      Let him squint

    • Jean says:

      That’s not a squint, that’s his brooding look.

  23. normades says:

    I think PSY will come out with a new album next year and really blow people away. He already has 6 albums under his belt in Korea and went to Boston University and Berklee School of Music. Dude is smart and actually very talented.

  24. yael says:

    i’m pretty sure he wears more makeup than I do…

  25. Velouria says:

    What if you just wish he only lasted that long?

  26. Ari says:

    THAT WAS SO FREAKING AWESOME that psy hammer dance omg im like sobbing right now – its good to see hammer back 🙂

  27. pnnylne says:

    You know MC Hammer won 7 AMA’s…. A little humility never hurt anyone.

  28. hannah says:

    ok 3 years then

  29. Cats says:

    I HATE this trend of dedicating awards to “haters”. How about you dedicate it to the fans who spent their hard earned cash on your records you little ingrate?

  30. palermo says:

    As soon as I see someone using the word “haters” I stop reading … This whiny little girl is a joke

  31. Katie Too says:

    Love, love, love the Psy/MC Hammer mashup. Gosh darn it Hammer can still move!!!

  32. skuddles says:

    The dedication to his “haters” makes me think he stole a page out of Chris Brown’s Book of Extreme Douchery. Go away kid, you’re bugging me.

    • Izzy says:

      LOL. “Book of Extreme Douchery.” Does it come in a paperback format?

      • skuddles says:

        No I’m afraid not… it’s only available in hard cover with giant, oversize print 😉

        LOL MonicaQ, brilliant! But can you please add one more chapter…. Mommy and Me and How I Became a Giant Ahole in the First Place? Thanks doll 😉

  33. Izzy says:

    Aw. Widdiw Boo-Boo bought his mommy a new pair of lips. How sweet.

  34. Julie says:

    Justin Bieber’s mom looks like Miley Cyrus. I think Psy is talented but will probably be a one hit wonder here. He’s this generation’s Scat Man.

  35. I Choose Me says:

    That video of Psy and MCHammer was Ah-mahzing! I’ve been mostly ignoring that Gangam song and all the memes but the song has great energy and is quite catchy. And oh my, McHammer still got the moves! Such a great pick me up this afternoon.

  36. Jayna says:

    I have to say one thing. They were announcing best pop/rock album and name Spingsteen’s Birn In The USA and Michael Jackson’s I think Thriller or the other one were named as prior winners and then they name Bieber’s Believe as the winner. Wow. That is how far the quality of music has sunk as far as what is considered the best.

    He looked like a joke, skinny little guy with pajama bottoms and big diamonds in both ears. This guy’s base isn’t just young teen girls. I have seen shots of his fans and a huge chunk of them are tweens, not even teens. I doubt he can get any girl 17 and older at his concerts and zero guys, straight or gay. LOL

    • Ella says:

      I know, right? It’s not even so much that the quality of music has fallen so far, but the standards of what they give awards to (as you said). Bubblegum teen pop has always existed but the award shows used to favor acts that had a bit more potential for longevity. There are still artists around today who have that potential, but they are largely ignored in favor of whatever generates the most instant buzz and has the most industry dollars behind it. Bieber is a product of a very rich, shrewd mogul – he didn’t come out of nowhere and make it on his own merit. The award shows, even the Grammys, just pander to whatever is popular and being pushed by the industry, when they should instead stick to their guns and try to reward real talent, not just what’s selling the most to teen girls through shameless marketing techniques.

  37. crystalcastle says:

    stop calling them hammer pants. they are parachute pants. also, comme de garcons makes these pants so that’s where the inspiration is coming from. he’s trying to be mini-kanye with that leather tank and fashion forward pants.

  38. Nanz says:

    Just because you Belieb it, it doesn’t make it true.

  39. Amy says:

    I watched the AMAs last night. Justin grabbed his mom and pulled her up on stage when he won artist of the year (I think, whichever was the most important one). She was surprised to find herself being pulled along by her son and to be up on stage with him. Justin was clearly not expecting to get this award and really had no idea what to say, but kept thanking his mom who was standing next to him. It was pretty sweet. Never really cared for the kid but watching that made me like him.

    And I love Psy. I love the way he describes his song Gangnam Style. Dance cheesy, dress classy!

  40. MonicaQ says:

    The old man singing 2 Legit 2 Quit at 4:15 in the PSY/MC Hammer video almost ended my life. I laughed so damn hard I started crying.

    And I don’t know why.

  41. grabbyhands says:

    Well, Biebs-I hope that little tantrum speech is a comfort a few years from now when you’ve used up your fifteen minutes because all the tween fangirls have moved on.

    On the Psy/Hammer matchup-I absolutely loather this song, but that was pretty cool. Even more hilarious was the number of awkward white guys trying to jam out to the song.

  42. Juicy Lucy says:

    Justin needs to remember that all teen idols have a shelf life. His should expire in a few years.

  43. aenflex says:

    Douchebag. Total. Hair = douchey. Clothes = douchey. Attitude = douchey. I just want to slap his face.

  44. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Good points v4real, minty,ella and jayna; the two you mentioned v4real had much more talent than this douchnozzle;
    Esperanza Spalding and Gary Clark have new cds out – but they are real musicians so of no interest to tweener girls with no taste and music moguls in love with marketing crap.

  45. Kate says:

    I don’t understand the JB appeal beyond little girls. What freaks me out is I actually like One Direction. A lot. I’m way too old, but I get their appeal.

  46. samantha says:

    Oh please. He makes me want to throw up in my mouth. I doubt he will still be around in five years, much less ten.

  47. Nicole says:

    I loathe this spoiled piece of shit. His record label is trying to market him as the next Justin Timberlake. At least Timberfake actually made good music.

  48. Tootsie says:

    She (and by that I mean he) still looks like a lesbian. No offense to any lesbians. He needs a stylist that won’t let him wear those stupid pants anymore.

  49. Andrew says:

    Even though I cannot stand him, and he can’t dress himself, and he acts like a two year old, etc., I thought it was nice he brought his mom (who looks 25, now we know why Justin looks so damn young). She seems so much less douchey than Justin’s dad and Justin. And his performances were better than I thought they’d be, still can’t stand him, but it wasn’t the worst thing ever

  50. Anastasia says:


  51. lunabell says:

    That pic of him kissing his mom on the cheek, while she is looking down bashfully like some pre-teen, is gross.

    Also, didn’t “Baby” only come out in 2010? So hasn’t he only been around for two years?

  52. orion70 says:

    That Psy/MC Hammer mashup was indeed, too legit to quit. I was *this* close to dancing in my living room, lol.

  53. Taska says:

    Lunabell, that’s what I wanted to say–if it hasn’t just been a couple of years, it hasn’t been THAT much more.

  54. Shy says:

    Diaper pants and midget legs are back!!!

    You know what? I seriously suspect that Justin thinks that he looks TALLER when he puts his top to his knees and wears diaper pants. He thinks that people will see that long low top and it will looks like his tors is that tall.

    Look how high he puts his hair. I used to know older coworker that had small height. So he was always putting his hair up way too much. You know like people look where you hair ends and it sticks in their mind that this is how tall you are.

    Justin has some big issues with his height. I wonder when will he begin wear lifts like Tom Cruise.

    Also Bieber looks way too thin lately. I wonder why. You can see it when his arms are open. It’s like two matches.

  55. tina d says:

    This brat. And McCarthy is vile.

  56. Adrien says:

    Psy is known for only one song, “Gangnam Style”, which I really love. Then again, I only know one One Direction song, maybe I heard more but I don’t know. You go, Psy.

  57. Mandy says:

    How can anyone think those pants are a good idea?!?!?!?! Beibs needs a style intervention. STAT.

  58. rose says:

    his mom is preety

  59. deehunny says:

    Bieb’s mom’s shoes with that dress are atrocious

  60. amanda says:

    Am I the only one who cannot stand this horrid song maybe I don’t get it but the whole thing annoys me and I’m so tired of seeing this guy and hearing this dumb song everywhere

  61. kingkayski says:

    Can’t blame whoever threw a bottle at him on one of his stupid concert some years ago,the boy is a douche from the start.Rob got a lot of degrading demeaning comments on him everyday but you never hear him mention anything about insulting his fans,there’s really a big difference between a man and a douchebag boy.

  62. dorothy says:

    I’ll be glad when her/his 15 minutes are up.

  63. cc says:

    I am not up on my teenybopper pop but had heard “as long as you love me” on the radio at work. Just realized that was Justin Bieber – I thought it was sung by a girl!

  64. ilma says:

    michael jackson’s face was also feminine too!

  65. thebutlerdidit says:

    Meh. Sounds like what he is, an 18 yr old, & one with big money & ego. This, too, shall pass, as we continue on the wheel of “hot new teen boy sensations,with ambiguously female, non-threatening looks.” I was a Shaun Cassidy girl, myself. Biebs will prob go the way of the res, but he does have actual talent, so he might survive. Those “diaper pants” as y’all call them, are gaining traction in urban areas, even if you don’t see it at the local WalMart. Like Miley, he’s searching for an adult look, but also attempting to be a style setter. No bigs.

  66. sweet.serendipity says:

    first off, i cannot stand this kid’s posture. (see in first pic) he’s always poking his head out and it looks ridiculous.

    4th picture – is he wearing lipstick/lipgloss? o_O

  67. ViloDeMenus says:

    It’s pretty funny when a person is too oblivious to see they’re on their way out already. He’s was a flavor of the year whose long outstayed his welcome. So long you arrogant little twerp, your time to go is near. He’ll never look like a man, and wearing diaper pants was a nice touch to vent your anger so openly, and childishly.
