Justin Bieber booed and Taylor Swift gets rude

Any doubt that the Billboard Music Awards are anything other than a gigantic infomercial for major label acts was crushed Sunday night after Justin Bieber was presented with the Milestone Music Award for “musical ingenuity and innovation.”

J-Bib got so many boos from the audience that he spent most of his acceptance speech explaining why he actually deserved it. “I am an artist and I should be taken seriously,” he said.

Bieber did rise to fame on YouTube, and that was an innovative approach at the time. His hairstyle also has launched a thousand dipsh**s.

But the real gem of the night happened backstage when Taylor Swift happened upon Bieber and Selena Gomez smooching and she scrunched up her face in a grimace, sticking her tongue out in disgust. Now that’s a maverick.
