New York – Justin Bieber won the artist of the year award at MTV VMAs. He took home the best pop honor for “Peaches,” a song that featured Daniel Caesar and Giveon – who accompanied him onstage. Sporting baggy clothes and a hoodie, Bieber appreciated the awards being in-person and thanked his wife, Hailey, for supporting him.
Bieber said during his acceptance speech: “As we know, there’s so much going on in the world as we speak. I know you guys have probably heard it a lot. We are in unprecedented times with this COVID thing that’s happening right now. It’s a big deal. Music is such an amazing outlet to be able to reach people and bring us all together. That’s why we are here right now. We’re all here together.”
