Following his emotional performance during the MTV’s Video Music Awards on Sunday, Justin Bieber looked a lot when he visited Jimmy Fallon Wednesday.

The Tonight Show host asked the Bieber what made him break down at the Los Angeles Microsoft Theater, where he started crying after flying on a harness at the end of his performance.

“It’s got to be a lot of pressure, not only to appear in front of your peers but to fly in a harness,” a caring Fallon said.

“Harnesses suck … it pulls on the junk,” Bieber joked, before getting serious. “It was so overwhelming for me … I missed some cues so I was a little disappointed in that, [but] just the support,” he said. “Honestly, I wasn’t expecting them [the fans] to support me in the way they did.

“Last time I was at an award show I was booed,” Bieber confessed. “I’ve worked so hard at this album, I’ve worked so hard at becoming the man I want to become, then stepping into situations, you can’t help feeling judged. I just put everything on the line.

“That is what was so special about the emotional moment at the end, it was authentic and real,” he said, admitting to ranting during his explanation on the NBC late-night show.

“Plus, your junk was being pulled by the harness,” Fallon quipped. “I support you. Unfortunately, I have to make jokes about you — but that’s my job.”

Regarding his previous bad behaviour, which included racing down a residential neighborhood at 100 mph and egging his neighbor’s house and car, Bieber said: “I just had a bunch of knuckleheads around me.” He added that he just happened to do his growing up in the public spotlight. “I had more accessibility!”
