​justin bieber becomes most honoured in history of mtv emas

What do you mean? He’s now got 17 EMAs in total - more than anyone else ever. That’s what we mean.

Last night was a big one for Biebs, as he walked away with six MTV EMAs including Best Male Artist for the sixth year in a row, Best Collaboration for Where Are U Now with Skrillex and Diplo, and Best Look (who can resist those floppy, bleached, boy-band-esque locks?). The Beliebers also outnumbered the Directioners, as the four-piece scraped in a close second for the public-voted Biggest Fans. After winning his second prize, Beiber told his fans: "I don't take any of these moments for granted, you guys are unbelievable. That's where I belong, right up there on that stage." He also performed Where Are U Now sans tears, to a screaming crowd. This is all in the run up to Beiber's imminent chart battle with One Direction on 13th November, when his album, Purpose, and One Direction's album Melody will both be released and compete for number 1 glory. One Direction won just the one act compared to Beiber's six, for Best Pop.

Other winners include Taylor Swift, who was nominated for nine awards but won only three, including Best Song for Bad Blood; Rihanna who won Best Female Artist; and Nicki Minaj, who walked away with Best Hip Hop.
