Yes, he was appearing on a TV show, so the cameras are inevitable, but at the end of the day, it's a performance that's being televised and he wanted to give the fans what they came there for.
After performing his hit single "What Do You Mean?" Justin didn't leave anything open to interpretation, telling everyone there EXACTLY what he meant. "Next time I won't dance because the camera's here the whole time. Might as well not dance," he said, visibly annoyed at the cameraman. "What do I do this for if they're just gonna ..." The show then quickly cut to commercial.
After the break, Justin seemed to be in a much better mood, and even let one of the co-hosts touch his hair. When they asked him if blondes have more fun, Justin had the perfect response: "I think I have fun either way!"
Back inside the studio, Justin opened up about why he's gotten so emotional on stage recently. "It just feels so great to just feel the acceptance, you know, and it's not that that's where I get my validation, but it just shows that they're for me, not against me," he explained. "It's hard, but I'm feeling more confident."
He also said that he wasn't on a "break," he just took some time to do some soul-searching. Now, he's back in a big way and right back up at the top of the Billboard charts, with "What Do You Mean?" still in the top spot.
