Justin Bieber's fondness for the MTV Movie Awards dates back to a time way before his 2011 nomination for Best Jaw-Dropping Moment.

"My first memory?" he pondered to MTV News. "I remember just watching it from a young age and always laughing and having a great time."

While he didn't nab any noms this year, he is hoping that "Bridesmaids" walks home with a Golden Popcorn trophy when the 2012 MTV Movie Awards go live this Sunday. "I liked 'Bridesmaids.' I need to see 'Hunger Games' again. I need to see it because I went there the first night it came out and I feel asleep because it was like super-late. But I need to see it again," he explained, before breaking down why he loved the raunchy female comedy so much.

"I just think it was funny. It's kind of like the female version of 'The Hangover,' " he said. "I thought it was funny."

Expect more memories to be made and lots of Golden Popcorn statues to be handed out (maybe even to "Bridesmaids") when the 2012 MTV Movie Awards take place this weekend. The show will be hosted by Russell Brand and feature performances by Fun., the Black Keys, Martin Solveig and Wiz Khalifa. It all goes down from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, on Sunday.
