It’s been one wild ride for our boy Justin Bieber these past few years. We’ve loved him, then hated him (God, did we HATE him), and now, we’re sorta loving him again. The Biebs has been on the down low ever since he turned 21 early this year—gone are those wild nights of drag racing, underage drinking, and that forlorn pet monkey of his.
August 30 marked his return to the MTV Video Music Awards. Five long years have passed since his last performance on the awards show and Justin had a fresh new comeback track to debut onstage. Dressed in an all-black ensemble—thank god for that black cap—Justin gave his all during his performance of "Where Are U Now" and "What Do You Mean." And at the end of the performance, this image of him crying went viral in an instant:
Now, here’s Justin explaining on Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon exactly why he ended up crying that night:
WOW. We’ve all been rooting for you, Justin. We all have.
WELCOME BACK, JUSTIN BIEBER!!!
