Justin Bieber posted a photo of the Rock of Cashel and nobody knows why

It included some sheep.

2016 Billboard Music Awards - Show Source: AP/Press Association Images

JUSTIN BIEBER PICKED up the Top Male Artist award at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.

But all anyone was talking about the next day was a rather lacklustre performance when he was singing on stage.

So, last night, Biebs addressed his performance in a rather long Instagram post about award shows in general – and intriguingly included a photo of Tipp landmark the Rock of Cashel along with it

I don't know about these award shows.. No disrespect to anybody at any of the shows or the people running it. Nothing but love for you guys and your support. But I don't feel good when I'm there nor after. I try to think of it as a celebration but can't help feeling like people are rating and grading my performance. A lot of people in the audience there to be seem worried about how much camera time they will get or who they can network with. When I'm doing a regular show I feel they are there for the right reasons and to strictly have a good time! But these award shows seem so hollow. I get the premise is to award people for their accomplishments, but is it really? Because when I look in the audience I see a bunch of fake smiles so that when the camera hits them they look happy. Sure there are people truly proud of others so I don't want to knock them I'm just looking at the vast majority. I just think to myself if I'm living my purpose I want the reward to be fulfillment. I'm getting awarded for the things that I'm doing and not for who I am which is understandable I know it would probably be hard to calculate and award someone's spirit lol. But When I do get these awards the temptation of putting my worth in what I do is so hard to fight!!!I am privileged and honored to be recognized by my peers in but in these settings I can't feel the recognition. There's an authenticity missing that I crave! And I wonder does anybody else.. Sorry not sorry about grammar it's not my strong point

He began:

I don’t know about these award shows.. No disrespect to anybody at any of the shows or the people running it. Nothing but love for you guys and your support. But I don’t feel good when I’m there nor after.

And he went on to call out award shows in general:

Some interesting points made, but every Irish person who saw it was more confused about the Rock of Cashel photo attached

And there’s a warm Tipp welcome waiting for Justin if he wants to see it in real life

Sheep and all

There’s already over 1 million likes on the photo. Probably half for the award show essay and the other half for the Rock looking class

Up Tipp.
