The American Music Awards were this weekend, or as I like to call them, The Shammys, and if you needed further evidence that western society is beyond doomed, Justin Bieber swept the damned thing, winning each of the awards he had been nominated for.
Bieber, who is signed to Usher’s label, had a perfect debut at the American Music Awards, winning all four awards he was nominated for: entertainer of the year, breakthrough artist of the year, favorite pop/rock male and favorite pop/rock album for “My World 2.0.” Bieber’s debut album is one of the year’s top-sellers, with almost two million sold, and he’s got a new CD, “My Worlds Acoustic,” out this week at Walmart. His ascension marks a phenomenal rise since first garnering attention via homemade videos on YouTube about three years ago. SOURCE
Not that I don’t think Justin Bieber is a nice kid – Well, actually, that’s a lie, I’m pretty sure he’s going to end up on crystal meth binge in about five years – but come on; entertainer of the year? Really? I’ve had more talented things stuck to the bottom of my shoe. Justin is the only artist in the world whose voice made auto-tune just say “Fuck it, you’re not even trying anymore,” and we reward him for it? This is why we suck people.
