The Biebs may not want to visit home anytime soon.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the beleaguered singer was booed Sunday night at Canada's Juno Awards. While Bieber was not in attendance at his native country's biggest music awards show, there were reportedly some jeers mixed in with the cheers when his name was announced as the winner of the fan choice award.
One of his fellow artists took up for the 20-year-old singer, who has had his fair share of legal run-ins recently. Canadian musician Serena Ryder said Bieber was deserving of the honor.
"I really think that Justin Bieber is an amazing musician, and he deserved every bit of that award because he's been working his a** off his entire life, and we need to support how awesome he is,"she said.
For his part, the absent Bieber kept things upbeat – as he always does – on his Twitter account.
