Justin and Hailey Bieber selected to not spend their Sunday night in Newark, Latest Jersey on the MTV VMAs despite Justin having several nominations.
Justin is up for Song of the 12 months (with the Kid LAROI for “Stay”), Best Collaboration (with the Kid LAROI for “Stay”), Best Metaverse Performance, and Best Visual Effects (with the Kid LAROI for “Stay”). Given the awards are in additional minor categories or probably the most competitive category (Song of the 12 months), the Biebers’ alternative to skip the ceremony is comprehensible.
Hailey spoke to Harper’s Bazaar for its September issue about her street style and the way the paparazzi attention she gets has led her to have high standards for her fashion. “I get photographed a lot that I feel like sometimes I put pressure on myself,” she said, adding it’s partially attributable to her perfectionism. “Even when I’m just throwing on jeans and a T-shirt, I need it to be a dope pair of jeans and an awesome T-shirt!”
She also spoke about her marriage to Justin 4 years in and what their relationship is like now. “He’s still the person who I wanna be rushing back to,” she said. “I would fly somewhere and go do a job, but I can’t wait to return back and hang around. And I feel like that’s due to the trouble that’s been put in on either side. At the top of the day, like, he’s my best friend, nevertheless it still does take a whole lot of work to make it work. After which I do know eventually, when kids are available in the image, that’s going to be an entire other season of navigating the way to make that work.”
