Where celebrity couples are involved, our new favourite sport is watching them, watching each other. At the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards, Justin Bieber graced the stage for a live rendition of “Stay” and “Ghost” with Australia’s The Kid Laroi. While the couple opted out of walking the red carpet (we’re a little offended) MTV graciously shared footage of Hailey Bieber cheering on her husband from the crowd.

Hailey later appeared on stage to introduce Kasey Musgrave’s live performance. The 24-year-old wore a blush long-sleeve Alaïa dress before later changing into a white tank top and embellished pants. The glamorous looks were a far cry from Justin’s VMAs style (the couple are notorious for matching outfits) where he wore baggy jeans paired with a black hoodie and oversized blazer.

It’s Justin’s first appearance at the annual event in six years. He was nominated for a whopping seven nominations including Video of the Year, Artist of the Year, and Best Pop. The “Love Yourself” artist went on to win Artist of the Year. In accepting the award he honoured his wife.

“Music is such an amazing opportunity and an amazing outlet to be able to reach people and to be able to bring us altogether,” he said. “And that’s why we’re here right now, right? We’re all here together and we got a lot more in common than we don’t and I look around and I see so many beautiful faces and I really do believe the best is yet to come.

“I look over here and I see my beautiful wife and I just want to say, I love you so much.”

Seriously, do these two get any sweeter?

It comes after Olivia Wilde made an unexpected appearance at Harry Styles Las Vegas concert last week. She too could be seen cheering from the dance floor in support for her beau.

We love to see it!
