Justin Bieber Booed at Billboard Awards 2013

Justin Bieber Gets Booed at the Billboard Awards — Understandable or Unnecessary?

Justin Bieber took the stage multiple times at Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards — but fans may remember one appearance in particular. Justin got in front of the microphone to accept his milestone award, which was one of two that he picked up, and declared:

"I'm 19 years old, I think I'm doing a pretty good job. I really just want to say it should be about the music, the craft. This is not a gimmick. I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously and all this other bull should not be spoken of."

His words were presumably in response to the recent controversy surrounding the star, including his tweet about Anne Frank, the cancellation of an Oman concert, his attempt to illegally bring a pet monkey into Germany, and his relationship status with Selena Gomez. The crowd responded with a mix of cheers and boos, with the boos apparently much louder than what can be heard in the video. Watch the clip and tell us — do you think the backlash was understandable or totally unnecessary?
