Justin Bieber Tries To Be Relevant On Grammy Night, Fails


As you may know, popstar Justin Bieber managed to secure ZERO Grammy Award nominations this year and as a result, he decided to skip attending the Grammy Awards altogether, choosing instead to stay home and attempt interaction with his massive fanbase. The Biebs posted a few shirtless photos online and tried to rally his fans to join him in a Livestream chat session, pulling their attention away from the Grammy Awards. It worked. JB managed to get so many fans logging onto his site that it crashed and ended the fun for everyone. Isn’t that sad? Click below to see the photos, learn more about last night’s #BieberFail and watch the apology video he shared with fans to end the night.

He’s one of the web’s most popular personalities. And so perhaps it’s no surprise that Justin Bieber caused havoc on Sunday night when fans rushed to watch his live streams from his vacation home on both TwitCam and UStream. But after the sites crashed because of too many viewers, the 18-year-old had the perfect treat for his annoyed fans. ‘So, um, I’m sorry that my UStream didn’t work or my live stream didn’t work, but I’m going to do a video right now so that I can play you guys some of my new music,’ the shirtless Baby singer explained. ‘I’m on a vacation, that’s one of the reasons I have really slow Internet…’

The singer, who appeared on Saturday Night Live the previous night and apparently decided not to go to the Grammys after not being nominated for any awayds, was sitting on a white sofa as he looked into the camera. His lean frame looked lanky and a few of his eight tattoos were visible as he addressed fans. Although fans couldn’t see his trousers, it’s presumed he was wearing a pair. Justin’s trademark diamond stud earrings shone brightly in his ears. As part of the apology, he played an unreleased new song. Towards the end of the 2 min, 4-second video, the musician brought in his two younger sibling, Jaxon and Jazmyn for a brief cameo. He said the children were accompanying him on his vacation.

Well, you gotta give the kid credit for trying. I guess I can understand why he’d want to have his own pity party with his fans instead of going to the Grammys where he is not appreciated. While the Grammy folks decided not to honor him with a nomination this year, I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up with a nom eventually. Dry your tears, Bieber fans, I’m sure his time is coming.

    Why do I feel so much secondhand embarrassment watching that apology video?! How is he so awkward in it?! Ohh, Justin… At least there are plenty of teenage girls who think he has ‘swag’ and adore him!

  • rOXy

    He is in a fail tornado and can’t seem to get out.

  • Carl

    ClaireMichelle and rOXy both summed it up pretty well I’d say. He should be in a Summer’s Eve commercial, just sayin’.

  • blaqfury

    i wonder if he’ll still be relevant when he’s 30?

    • nicole

    Such a douche at such at such a young age…so sad.

    • Vicky

      Lots of kids at that ages are “douches” lol

    • @Vicky — Hahaha, true ;)

    I love Selena managed to shade him and was tweeted: “He’s bringing sexy back… And it’s about time!! @jtimberlake killed it!”

  • Serenity

    When I was a kid, we referred to this as “taking his ball and going home.” I don’t know why I’m so astounded that he can’t even make an appearance when things aren’t going his way.

  • Gillian

    Why do I get the feeling he is going to be the male equivalent to LiLo in a few years… Give it 5-10 years after his fans grow up and no longer care about his shirtless web cam chats. I think he needs to take a time out and take a few college courses. Maybe some creative writing? Then come back as a mature, non-bratty, less douchy artist.

      I agree. When people get too spoiled, it can be a dangerous combo with that much power and money. You have got to find a way to manage both the ups and downs or the downs will really destroy you. Justin (and his management) seem a litle too spoiled to be healthy.

    Reminds me of Leif Garret. Just sayin……
