P. Diddy backs Justin Bieber on his BET nomination

HollywoodNews.com: Earlier this week we reported that Justin Bieber had been nominated for a BET award, which is normally given to black artists. While there has been a lot of controversy surrounding his nomination, fellow artist P. Diddy is coming forward to stand up for the newcomer.

In a press conference he stated, “The awards are important to hip hop and to show [hip-hop artists] in the right light. But the beauty of BET is, if Justin Bieber’s hot, then he deserves to be on that stage,” said Diddy. “Sometimes, at other award shows, the color of your skin or the type of music you make takes away from getting the accolade you deserve,” reports NY Daily News.

Do you think Bieber deserved the nomination?
