Jenny McCarthy fondles Justin Bieber on-stage at the 2012 American Music Awards.

While Nicki Minaj was taking home two trophies at Sunday’s (November 18) American Music Awards, the evening’s top winner, Justin Bieber, was getting molested by Jenny McCarthy on-stage?

The 40-year-old, former Playboy model was presenting Bieber with his second award of the night when she couldn’t control herself, grabbing the 19-year-old by the throat, kissing him on the cheek and neck, and eventually grabbing his ass.

“Wow. I feel violated right now,” Bieber told the crowd while laughing.

It was definitely a funny sight… and backstage, Jenny was asked, and defended herself by saying she just couldn’t resist.

“I did grab his butt,” McCarthy said. “I couldn’t help it. He was just so delicious. So little. I wanted to tear his head off and eat it.”

McCarthy later tweeted (@JennyMcCarthy) about the incident, posting a picture of the kiss, and writing: “Cougar rape? #poorjustin.”
