Justin Bieber was booed by fans during Sunday night’s Juno Awards held at MTS Center in Winnipeg, Canada.
The singer – who was not present in the awards show – was greeted with a mixture of cheers and resounding boos when he was named the winner of Juno Fan Choice Award – an award he has won for four consecutive years.
However, Serena Ryder, while accepting the Songwriter of the Year Juno Award – came to Bieber’s defense, telling the crowd, ‘I really think that Justin Bieber is an amazing musician, and he deserved every bit of that award because he’s been working his a** off his entire life, and we need to support how awesome he is.’
And as for Bieber, he tweeted, ‘We won #JUNOFanChoice for the 4th year in a row! Love to all my beliebers. Thank u. Love u.’
