Oops, trust singer Justin Bieber to say something like that! A day after he won two awards at the Billboard Music Awards in the US, the Canadian singer has slammed award shows calling them ‘fake’. The singer was criticised for his lackluster performance of his songs Company and Sorry at the awards. Justin took to Twitter to express his feelings, reports Female First.

“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,” he wrote.

“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 continued.

Bieber, who won the Top Social Media Artist and Top Male Artist awards at the BBMAs, also hit out at attendees for their “fake smiles” and insisted there is “an authenticity missing” at award shows.
