16 Photos That Prove Justin Bieber Takes Justin Bieber Very Seriously

Justin Bieber made headlines this weekend when, upon receiving the Milestone Award at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards Sunday night, he asked to be taken more seriously as an artist.

That statement alone wouldn't have been such a shocker ("This is not a gimmick") had Bieber not been booed off the stage. Aww, poor Biebs. At least there's one person who takes him seriously, and that's ... well ... himself?!

Why so serious, Biebs?
