Justin Bieber was a winner during last night’s MTV Video Music Awards, taking home a Moonman for Best Male Video for ‘U Smile’, which was directed by Colin Tilley. The Canadian pop star was seated next to his girlfriend Selena Gomez when Kim Kardashian announced he had won the award, giving Selena a kiss before making his acceptance speech.
“I just want to say thank you so much, not only to God but to Jesus,” 17-year-old said. “Because you know, I wouldn’t be here without him, he’s really blessed me, put me in this position, so I want to say thank you so much. Also I want to say thank you to all the other nominees because they’re amazing. I’m a true fan of all of them, so I want to share this award with all them.”
Video of the acceptance speech at MTV.com has since been removed.
