The album proved to be an emotional project for Bieber, who spoke to ET about why he cried at the MTV Video Music Awards in August. "Good cries, bad cries, just all around being emotional," he said. "I think it just shows how much I care. You know, I care about this project so much and I've put my heart and soul into it, spent the last three or four years making it. So it's been exciting, it's been an amazing roller coaster ride. Sometimes good days, sometimes bad days, but overall it's been pretty awesome."
