He also recalled his last performance at an award show, "I just wasn't expecting them to support me in the way they did. The last time I was at an awards show I was booed."

In addition, Bieber talked about how had he has worked in between albums. He talked about the pressure of coming back to music after so many highly publicized run-ins with the law.
