If you tuned into the MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet on Sunday night (that’s what all the commotion was between performances on the “America’s Next Best Dance Crew” finale, by the way, you probably heard that Justin Bieber was not attending.
The hosts pointed out more than once that Biebs was trending on Twitter — despite not attending the MTV Movie Awards. (Because Justin Bieber trending on Twitter is a totally bizarre phenomenon.)
When Selena Gomez hit the carpet, Sway asked her, of course, about her now highly publicized romance with the pint sized popstar. “I don’t know if he gets nervous,” she said when it was mentioned that his “Never Say Never” doc had been nominated for Jaw-Dropping Moment.
“Is he here today?” Sway asked.
“Yes,” Selena replied quickly.
“He is here?” Sway asked.
“No, oh no, not here,” she quickly covered. “No no no. No.”
(She means no, in case you didn’t get that.)
The presenters of the Jaw-Dropping Moment Award, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, and Nick Schwartzen even tried to cover again when they announced the winner. “And the winner, for best jaw-dropping moment is… another person who’s not here. Sad. He didn’t come,” McBride said woefully.
“He’s not here. He’s busy boning a huge pile of cash in a private jet while he’s Skyping with Jaden Smith and Selena Gomez,” Ansari added.
Spoiler alert! Justin Bieber was in the house. He swaggered out on stage (sorry, the only word is swagger), sunglasses on, earrings blingin’.
Did Selena ruin the surprise for you, or did you think she just slipped?
