The singer reportedly has had his heart broken, but it doesn’t mean that is going to slow him down. He ended up being one of the most important faces at the American Music Awards on Sunday night.
Justin Bieber may be going through a very public breakup, but no one should feel bad for him. The singer took home multiple American Music Awards on Sunday night, including Artist of the Year, showing his career is still as hot as ever.
It has been more than a week since the breakup between Bieber and girlfriend Selena Gomez (a breakup reportedly initiated by Gomez) and after a fight at dinner Thursday night between the two, it looks like the singer is the one who is heartbroken. The fight may have been about Gomez’s decision to cancel her appearance at the American Music Awards, leaving Bieber to attend alone (he actually ended up bringing his mom).
Bieber was scheduled to perform at the AMAs and started that performance with an acoustic performance of “As Long As You Love Me,” a performance that seemed timely, considering the circumstances. But then he broke into a performance of “Beauty and a Beat” (with a cameo by Nicki Minaj), showing what he does best.
And another part of what he does best is win awards. Bieber was nominated for three awards, including Favorite Male Pop/Rock Artist, Favorite Pop/Rock Album, and Artist of the Year, and ended up winning all three awards.
As for Selena Gomez, it looks like Bieber may have a chance with her. Not only did she obviously agree to dinner with him last week, but he was spotted leaving her house the next morning (paparazzi somehow missed him arriving at her house). But if things don’t work out between the couple, you can guarantee there are millions of Beliebers out there who would be happy to take her place.
And for any critics who say Bieber’s 15 minutes is almost over, they should look at the awards the singer is still winning. He also has already sold millions of albums (including having seven albums that have reached the Billboard Top 200) and sold out his current tour in a matter of minutes. Anyone who doubts his influence obviously doesn’t understand the power of the teenage girl.
