Justin Timberlake Stole The Night With His Hilarious Acceptance Speech
Even though Justin couldn’t be there to accept his award, he filmed an acceptance speech and it was hilarious! Justin, of course, won for his musical abilities, but he should win prize for top comedian of the night, too!
“Wow! What an honor!” Justin said in the pre-taped clip, saying that receiving the award was “unbelievable.”
He also gave a shout out to his fellow nominees — Miley, Katy, Bruno and Imagine Dragons. “I love you guys…it’s not a competition,” he said, adding, “but if it was, I won! I’m okay with that.”
We love Justin’s sense of humor! We also love that he had no shame in dissing Donald Sterling in his acceptance speech. “I want to thank everybody on Earth…except Donald Sterling!”
