Justin Bieber won the first American Music Award doled out on November 18, 2012. Accepting the award for Favorite Male Pop Artist, Justin started his acceptance speech with “this goes out to all the haters.” Bold move, bro.

Softening into sincere gratitude, Justin continued: “I want to thank my family at home, I want to thank all my beautiful fans, you guys are incredible, I love you so much, and last thing, I love everybody.” Justin paused a few times before wrapping his speech, sounding like he had something he really wanted to say but couldn’t get out.

Could it be that he wanted to thank ex girlfriend Selena Gomez?
