Justin Bieber Breaks Down After VMA Performance

“Life is a journey. Sometimes a battle, full of the unexpected.”

After singing his question-based bangers and flying a story or two into the air at the end of his performance, Justin Bieber broke down in front of the crowd in the Microsoft Theatre. It's a big moment for the Biebs, who's clawed his way back into the public consciousness and good graces after making headline after headline for his bad-boy behavior.

"Life is a journey. Sometimes a battle, full of the unexpected. Sometimes you focus on the destination, and forget to focus on that journey," said Justin (or a voiceover) near the end of his performance. "But when you fall, it allows you to get up stronger. It allows you not to lean on your own understanding, give into faith, believe in something bigger than yourself, and find your purpose."
