It’s been a few years since justin went from being Canada’s darling to a national embarrassment. Just how much life has changed for Justin Bieber became clear as he was booed by the home crowd at the Juno Awards on Sunday.
At the annual awards, the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy Awards, the 20-year-old pop star took home the Juno Fan Choice Award.
Bieber was not at the event that took place at Winnipeg, Manitoba to take the award, but when his name was called out, a surprising amount of audible boos greeted the win.
Canada’s Olympic women’s curling team accepted the fan choice award on behalf of the tattooed troubled superstar.
Fellow Canadian music artist Serena Ryder stood up for the singer when she came on stage to accept her Juno for the songwriter of the year.
‘I really think that Justin Bieber is an amazing musician and he deserved every bit of that award because he’s been working his ass off his entire life and we need to support how awesome he is,’ Ryder said.
While the Juno Awards celebrated Canadian musical acts such as Arcade Fire, Drake, Sarah McLachlan and Bachman-Turner Overdrive – Bieber was thousands of miles away on the east coast city of Montreal. The singer, who has been dating Disney star Selena Gomez on and off, was with his entourage clubbing on the city’s main street. According to witnesses, he picked up three girls from the club at 3 am and was seen heading back to his room for a private party. Youthful trouble!
