He also asks for a moment of silence at the HALO Awards for the victims in Paris.
Justin Bieber shared 13 music videos following the premiere of his new album, Purpose.
It’s hard to celebrate the success of your album on the very day a tragedy strikes. Bieber’s letting his songs do the talking, premiering visuals for each of them at his Staples Center shows in L.A. on Friday before sharing them online today (Nov. 14). The 13 videos, labeled Purpose: The Movement, became available online in the order they appear on the album.
Most of the videos are visual representations and don’t feature Bieber himself in them, but nonetheless his promotional game charges on full force following Friday’s drop. He’ll need to pull out all the stops if he wants to claim the No. 1 spot against One Direction, who released their highly-anticipated Made In The A.M. album on the same day.
Watch the videos below:
Bieber was also honored with the first-ever Hall of Fame award at the 2015 HALO Awards on Saturday night, Nov. 14 in New York City. Instead of giving an acceptance speech, Bieber asked the crowd to join him for a moment of silence:
“I just want to say how grateful I am to Nickelodeon, all the people in the audience right now,” Justin said as he got a bit emotional. “Can I just say something for one second? There’s been some sad things happening in the world right now, and I think we should all honor that and take one moment of silence for that if you guys could. So yeah, if we could just take a moment.”
