Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez Win Favorite Artist And International Favorite Artist At MuchMusic Video Awards 2014

Justin Bieber has one more thing to thank his Beliebers for, after winning the Favorite Artist or Group of the Year Award at the 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards on Sunday night.

The 20-year-old wasn’t in downtown Toronto, Canada to pick up his fan-voted award at the MMVAs, which is in its milestone 25th edition.

This year the event was hosted by Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner and held outside CTV television network flagship headquarters in Toronto and broadcast on MuchMusic, CTV and CTV Go.

The Favorite Artist or Group of the Year Award is a five-year consecutive win for Bieber, who first won the award in 2010.

In winning it, the selfie-loving superstar beat out rapper Drake, pop rockers Hedley and The Weekend and original ska8er girl Avril Lavigne.

Bieber was also nominated — but did not go on to win — the International Video of The Year by a Canadian Award. The singer was nominated for his music video “All That Matters.”

The song was the third single released off Justin’s 2013 Journals album and was directed by Colin Tilley.

If Bieber’s recently posted and deleted Instagram of his former girlfriend, actress and singer Selena Gomez, is the sign of a once more united household, her win of Favorite International Artist/Group of the Year award for her “Come and Get It” hit should stop any jealousy.

We jest of course. Bieber and Gomez’s love is “unconditional.”

After rocking up to the MuchMusic Video Awards red carpet in a scandalously cut, pelvic-bone revealing, white, Fausto Puglisi dress encrusted with jewels, 18-year-old Kendall and Kylie, 16, reportedly acquitted themselves adequately as show hosts, mainly because – as CTV News put it – the “Jenners stayed out of the way.”

The reality TV stars – who have used the Kardashians platform to walk runways, design a clothing line and write a young-adult sci-fi novel called “Rebels: City of Indra” with the help of author Maya Sloan — featured in a flight crew safety skit to open the show.

Kendall also made fun of her Billboard Music Awards cue card fluff during the show.

Beside Bieber and Gomez, other MuchMusic winners included Hedley who took home three awards. Two of which were Video of The Year and the fan-voted Favorite Video of the year.

Toronto rapper Drake waltzed off with Hip Hop Video of the Year and International Video of the Year, while New Zealand teen songstress Lorde won International Video of the Year with “Royals” and also performed.

Other stage renditions came from Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, Kiesza.

Bieber’s award is a high spot after a turbulent two weeks of censure following the publication of two videos in which he said the N-word.

No such censure was assigned to the person (s) who reportedly blackmailed the singer and his team for years over thoughtless words said as a child, that no doubt many other children and older have said or thought.

Once Bieber got online later, he thanked Beliebers and retweeted media articles on his win.
