The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards brought plenty of OMG moments, but perhaps the most touching came in the form of an overwhelmed and emotional Justin Bieber at the end of his "Where Are You Now?/What Do You Mean?" performance. Speaking out about it for the first time, the singer sat with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Wednesday in a much anticipated appearance. So if you've been wondering just why Bieber cried at the VMAs, here's the real reason in his own words.

Bieber went on to acknowledge he was going through growing pains, but he was ready to turn it all around.

Fallon, who has definitely taken his fair share of jabs at the Biebz, said how much he supported him, saying, "Well, what makes a man I think is also not how much you can fight, but if you get knocked down, can you get up. And boy did you get up and boy did you come back fighting."

"What Do You Mean?" is currently No. 1 on Billboard charts, and his new album drops Nov. 13. If you weren't a Belieber in his comeback, you might be now.
