Justin Bieber has been getting some bad press for the past few months, starting with his “diva-like behavior” while touring in London. Now, it appears that the music world may have begun to turn on him as well.

This weekend at the Billboard Music Awards, Bieber was awarded the first ever Milestone Award. The award, which was sponsored by car manufacturer Chevrolet, was meant to go to an artist who had demonstrated “musical ingenuity and innovation” over the past year. Bieber was nominated for the award along with Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars.

When Bieber took the stage to accept the award, the crowd reaction was mixed, with a large contingent of boos that could easily be heard. The pop singer seemed to react to the jeers, rambling on in his acceptance speech about how he should “be taken seriously.”

“And basically, from my heart I really just want to say it should really be about the music,” said Bieber. “It should be about the craft, the craft that I’m making. This is not a gimmick, I’m not – this is not a gimmick. I’m an artist and I should be taken seriously and this, all this other bull should not be spoken of.”

    He is a thug plain and simple. I don’t see his career lasting anymore then 10 more year’s.

    I cannot stand him! He thinks he is Mr. Diva. Pull up your stupid looking pants and stop touching yourself like you got something down there PUNK!

    How sad are you to be picking on a 19 year old. Be an adult and acknowledge that he can sing, dance, and play instruments. I can’t, can you? If you can, then do something about it and go for it. Should Bieber be like 90% of the world and not go after his dreams? Should he sit in an office all day or flip burgers at McDonalds? Hmmm, if you have a gift or a love, then go for it. That’s what I am trying to instill in my son. Keep doing what you’re doing Beiber. I love working out to your music…it puts an extra kick in my step.

      The media needs to pick on someone and he’s just easy fodder at this time. It’s too bad I agree. There is absolutely no privacy in any ‘stars’ life these days. It has gotten out of control. There really should be something done about it in a way. I know they put themselves out there by being in the spotlight, but the media does pry a bit too much. Far too invasive for my liking!
