So the Biebs got a bit of stick last night for his performance at Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards...
He picked up the award for Top Male Artist, but lots of fans felt his heart wasn't really in the performance.
So, naturally, he took to social media to weigh in on the matter.

I don't know about these award shows.. No disrespect to anybody at any of the shows or the people running it. Nothing but love for you guys and your support. But I don't feel good when I'm there nor after. I try to think of it as a celebration but can't help feeling like people are rating and grading my performance. A lot of people in the audience there to be seem worried about how much camera time they will get or who they can network with. When I'm doing a regular show I feel they are there for the right reasons and to strictly have a good time! But these award shows seem so hollow. I get the premise is to award people for their accomplishments, but is it really? Because when I look in the audience I see a bunch of fake smiles so that when the camera hits them they look happy. Sure there are people truly proud of others so I don't want to knock them I'm just looking at the vast majority. I just think to myself if I'm living my purpose I want the reward to be fulfillment. I'm getting awarded for the things that I'm doing and not for who I am which is understandable I know it would probably be hard to calculate and award someone's spirit lol. But When I do get these awards the temptation of putting my worth in what I do is so hard to fight!!!I am privileged and honored to be recognized by my peers in but in these settings I can't feel the recognition. There's an authenticity missing that I crave! And I wonder does anybody else.. Sorry not sorry about grammar it's not my strong point
That's all well and good, Justin...
BUT WHY IS THE RANT ACCOMPANIED BY A PICTURE OF THE ROCK OF CASHEL?
The people need answers.
And back to more pressing showbiz issues, WHY has Justin Bieber posted a picture of the Rock of Cashel to his Instagram?

However, we may have a possible explanation...
Everybody thinks Justin Bieber purposefully looked up the rock of cashel to use on his Instagram when it's clear he just misspelled castle..
