Justin Bieber was unfortunately booed Sunday night after winning the first ever “Milestone Award” at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.
Upon accepting the award and being booed Bieber stated, “I’m 19 years old. I think I’m doing a pretty good job. From my heart I really just want to say, it should really be about the music. It should be about the craft. The craft that I’m making. This is not a gimmick. I’m an artist and I should be taken seriously. All this other bull should not be spoken of.”
Bieber is the first artist under 19 to have five number 1’s on the Billboard 200. Check out his heartfelt speech below.
