Valentine's Day weekend 2011 was supposed to be the weekend of Justin Bieber. His movie Never Say Never 3D opened at midnight on Friday, February 11, shattering opening-day records. Plus he was up for two prestigious Grammy Awards on Sunday.
But instead of finding himself on top of the world with box office and music industry success, Justin was suddenly hit with a big reality check.
Despite the $12.4 million the film brought in Friday, the movie made an overall opening weekend total of $30.3 million -- just a tad shy of Adam Sandler's Just Go With It's $31 million -- so that Justin Bieber: Never Say Never officially opened at number two at the box office.
But instead of getting himself down about it all, Justin is looking at the positive side. As he was leaving the Grammys, he Tweeted, "So I'm always honest with u guys and I'm finally leaving the #grammys so I can tweet. 2nite was a great night. I got to perform at the grammys with my mentor @usherraymondiv and I feel like we did u guys proud."
He continued, "As for the awards...of course I wanted to win. Its been & still is a dream to win a grammy. Was I upset...yes. But I was happy for her also. Someone said to me tonight its not your successes that define u but your failures. I lost..but I don't plan on this being my last chance....I do this because I love it..and I do it for my family friends and fans who support me. I was grateful for the honor and this...Is just the beginning. #NeverSayNever." And he concluded with, "Now we have so much to celebrate!! Leggo!"
Now that's the way to look on the bright side of things... and we have no doubt this isn't the last time we'll see Justin at the Grammys! In fact, let's start it now: #BieberGrammyWin2012
