Boohoo! Directioners Sore Losers Over Justin Bieber Win

In case you haven’t heard, Justin Bieber took home the Biggest Fans Award at the 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA) last night. It was a close fight between Bieber’s fans (otherwise known as ‘Beliebers’) and the One Direction fanbase (a.k.a. ‘Directioners’), but it was the former that went away with the victorious crown.

Many Directioners have been disappointed by the outcome of the EMAs, even going so far as to accuse MTV officials of rigging the results and handing over the crown to Bieber. Clearly, some people just can’t handle the bitter taste of defeat.

“I just don’t understand how we lost,” wrote one fan, pointing out an apparent 3 million lead in votes for One Direction.

Beliebers, on the other hand, have been ecstatic about their triumph. Rightfully so, as this victory comes after Bieber’s ongoing efforts to rise back to the music industry, following a shaky road filled with several run-ins with the law, among other things.

As of late, Bieber has been kept busy with promotions for his upcoming album, Purpose, which comes out on November 13. As it just so happens, One Direction’s fifth studio album, Made In The A.M., will be out on the same day as Bieber’s.

Coincidence? We think not. Could One Direction be deliberately releasing their album the same day as Bieber’s as an advertising ploy? Highly possible.

The two fandoms may have gone head-to-head, but MTV acknowledged the Beliebers’ efforts as the stronger of the two. What can Directioners do, especially when they’re up against Bieber’s strong and loyal fanbase?

The Biggest Fans Award wasn’t the only accolade Bieber bagged that night. Additionally, the other awards Bieber won from the 2015 MTV EMA are: Best Male, World Wide Act (North America), Best Collaboration (for his work with Skrillex & Diplo for Where Are U Now?), and Best Look.

Clearly, Bieber swept the EMAs, leaving Taylor Swift in the dust (despite her 9 nominations that night). One Direction paled in contrast, only managing to snag the Best Pop Award.
