Here’s the Real Reason Why Justin Bieber Skipped the VMAs This Year

Justin Bieber got drunk and did karaoke instead of going the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.

The some of the biggest names in Hollywood were busy attending the VMAs on Sunday (Aug. 28, 2016), the “Cold Water” singer decided to skip the awards show and spent the night drinking alone at a karaoke bar in Los Angeles.

Good for him, right? Well considering he lost in both categories he was nominated in, we think he did right by staying home. According to the Daily Mail, JB was sipping on some Jack Daniels before performing a version of Jerry Lee Lewis’s “Great Balls of Fire.”

“He came in to the bar around 10pm with a security guard who gave him plenty of space and waited by the door,” a source revealed. “Justin knows the owner really well so came in and drank for free, he was knocking back Jack Daniels neat and seemed really relaxed.”

There are also tons of videos of him singing on Instagram.
