We all saw it coming when teen sensation Justin Bieber won the award for Best New Artist, the only person who didn't foresee it was the Best New Artist himself. Now, Justin has paid tribute to his mentor Usher following his MTV Video Music Awards victory on Sunday.
BIeber took home the Best New Artist prize at the Los Angeles event and looked visibly shocked as he picked up the trophy. Of course the most logical place to express you thanks after that would be Twitter right? Justin headed to his Twitter page to thank his parents, fans, management – and pal Usher, who has been mentoring the 16 year old since they met in 2008.
In a series of posts, he writes, "Wow. What?? R U Kidding. What!!?! Hahahaha. Wow. Wow wow wow. Thanks… we did it!!
"Wooohoooooo!!! Can't stop smiling! Biggest THANK U in the WORLD to the Greatest Fans in the World!! We Did It 2Gether and We are Just getting Started!!! I LOVE U!! Thank U!!"
"I know I'm forgetting all kinds of people. My mind is just spinning. Couldn't even think. Can't stop smiling! I love everybody! huh. (To Usher) love u brother."
