Full steam ahead! After performing at the MTV VMAs on Aug. 30, Justin Bieber continued his comeback tour by not only singing ‘What Do You Mean?’ on ‘The Tonight Show,’ but sitting down and chatting with host Jimmy Fallon about crying at the VMAs and his new album!

While appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Sept. 2, Justin Bieber, 21, performed his hot new song, “What Do You Mean?” But before that, he explained to Jimmy Fallon why he cried at the VMAs. Plus, he revealed exclusive info about his highly-anticipated new album! To hear more about Justin Bieber, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!

While chatting with Jimmy, Justin explained his strong emotions at the awards show, saying, “It was just so overwhelming for me — everything, just the performance. I missed some cues, so I was a little disappointed at that. Just everyone and their support. Honestly, let me breathe for second…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. I think it’s just like I’ve worked so hard at this album and at becoming the man I want to become, and then stepping into situations, you just can’t help but feel judged. So I was just feeling judged and wanting to win so badly, and wanting to do what I love so badly that I just put everything on the line. And I think that that was what was so special about the emotional moment at the end, that it was authentic. It was real. I was really just wanting it so bad.”

Then Jimmy joked that Justin’s junk was also being pulled by the harness so maybe that had something to do with it. And later in their conversation, after Justin said a lot of his bad behavior in the past stemmed from hanging out with “knuckleheads,” he revealed that his new album will be coming out on November 13! No title was given.

Later in the show, Justin sang a country version of “What Do You Mean?” and participated in a drum off with a member from The Roots. Justin, who’s wildly talented on the drums, won, but that shouldn’t be a surprise.

As previously reported, Justin’s last TV appearance was on Sunday, Aug. 30, when he performed “Where Are U Now?” and “What Do You Mean?” during the MTV Video Music Awards. Justin dubbed it his “comeback” performance.
