Emotions were running very high at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. There were high highs -- when Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj squashed their "Bad Blood" with an epic joint performance -- low lows -- when Minaj threw epic levels of shade at Miley Cyrus during her acceptance speech -- and WTFs -- when Justin Bieber began epically sobbing on-stage. WATCH: Justin Bieber Says It's Hard to Trust People The Biebs delivered a spot-on performance of his summer hit, "Where Are U Now," and his latest single, "What Do You Mean?" -- even flying up into the air at one point -- but then he broke down in tears at the end of the set. Getty Images With no explanation at all, Bieber sobbed into his hands while a stunned crowd looked on. Naturally, all eyes were searching for Bieber's ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, who was attending the show alongside her pal Taylor Swift and the "Bad Blood" squad.

Gomez, along with Swift and the "Bad Blood" girls had exited the venue just before Bieber's set. So the world will never know how she might have reacted to those tears. Earlier this month, Bieber opened up about having trust issues after going through hard times in the past. "Trusting people is hard, especially for me. I've trusted people who I probably shouldn't have trusted before and they've hurt my heart," he said bluntly in an interview with Elvis Duran on his nationally syndicated radio show. "I'm a pretty sensitive guy, so I'll lay it all on the line, and they'll kind of pull it. So now I'm figuring out there's certain people I can't do that with."

Thousands of years before the ancient Egyptians quarried even the first block of granite for the great pyramids, a massive wooden totem nearly 17.5 feet tall fell into a peat bog in the western fringes of Siberia, Russia. Called the Big Shigir Idol, the mysterious statue has baffled researchers for decades due to the coded hieroglyphics covering its surface. While some have surmised that it may contain stories on the creation of the world by ancient man, others believe it to be nothing more than decoration. Back in 1997, an initial analysis using radiocarbon dating placed the Shigir Idol's age at roughly 9,500 years.

In a place with no animals and little vegetation around, they closed themselves in at 3:00 pm Hawaii time (0100 GMT Saturday), marking the official start to the 12-month mission.
