Mariah Carey Accepts Icon Award At The 2019 Billboard Music Awards/See The Full List Of Winners

Keep Standing Tall Mariah Carey GIF by Billboard Music Awards

Mariah Carey joined the ranks of Stevie Wonder, Prince and Cher when she received the Icon Award at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday.

Jennifer Hudson introduced Carey, who first wished her twins in the audience a happy birthday.

“Thank you Billboard for letting me grow up on the charts with you and for this incredible honor,” Carey said. “Icon? I really don’t think of myself in that way. I started making music out of a necessity to survive and to express myself. And I just wanted to create something so I could feel worthy of existing.”

She continued, cracking a joke about the “drama” she’s dealt with throughout her career, even making “a few memes” along the way.

“I guess I’ve always felt like an outsider, someone who doesn’t quite belong anywhere. And I still feel like that lost interracial child who had a lot of nerve to believe I could succeed at anything at all in this world,” Carey said. “But, and this is the truth, I did believe. Because I had to. The truth is, I’ve dedicated my life to my music, my saving grace; and to my fans, who are are unlike any entity I’ve ever known. They’ve lifted me out of the depths of hell and brought me back with their devotion and love.”

Carey ultimately dedicated the award to “anybody who doesn’t allow themselves to be broken and keeps getting up, and keeps holding on, and keeps standing tall, and keeps on believing, and keeps rising.”

“And to anyone who’s ever told me that a song I wrote helped save their life, I thank you because you saved mine,” she concluded.

Prior to her speech, Carey performed a medley of her greatest hits, including “A No No,” “Always Be My Baby,” “Emotions,” “We Belong Together,” and “Hero.”

Trippin’ On You. Ella Mai Shades Jacquees, Says Nobody Knows His Music

Image result for ella mai 2019 gif

The R&B beef continues between Ella Mai and Jacquees.

Back in December, Jacquees talked about the ‘Trip’ remix drama on the Breakfast Club. He said, “It’s all love at the end of the day. I ain’t trippin’,” 

Click Here if you missed that.

It looks like Ella Mai is still feeling some kind of way.

On Tuesday (April 9), she sent out a cryptic tweet about an unnamed artist who performed her song during another artist’s concert.

“i’d be so embarrassed if someone brung me on stage and the only thing i could sing was someone elses song because nobody knew my actual music. poor thing,” she tweeted.

 During Drake’s “Assassination Vacation Tour” at London’s O2 Arena on Tuesday night, Tory Lanez brought out Jacquees to perform his controversial remix to Ella’s “Trip” during his opening set.

And the rest is history….

BeyHive Buzzin’. Omari Hardwick Receives Backlash for Kissing Beyoncé at NAACP Image Awards

Beyonce Respeckmygossip GIF

Beyonce, Jay-Z, Ella Mai, and Donald Glover were among the big winners at the 50th annual NAACP Image Awards, held Saturday (March 30) at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Beyonce was named entertainer of the year, beating out NBA superstar LeBron James, actors Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk) and Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), and director Ryan Coogler (Black Panther).

“Regina King, I love you so much. You taught us patience, persistence and how to be masterful in your craft,” Beyonce told the crowd. “Chadwick Boseman is teaching children to dream and to be seen as kings. LeBron James has taught us the strength of all forms, leading by example and providing education to our kids. Ryan Coogler tells our stories in a way that celebrates our history and proves we do have power.”

She added, “I’m honored to be included among all of you, and to be a part of a vital and thriving community. Thank you to the NAACP.”

And….

Jay-Z was another big winner at the ceremony. The hip-hop icon received the president’s award for his efforts through the Shawn Carter Foundation and serving as co-founder of the REFORM Alliance.

Jay-Z dedicated the award to his 93-year-old grandmother Hattie White. “It’s not the amount of years in your life. It’s the amount of life in your years,” he said, quoting Abraham Lincoln. “That quote embodies my beautiful grandmother.

Here’s the messy part.

Omari Hardwick is trending on the blogs for all the wrong reasons.


While greeting her, the Power star went in for two kisses—including one near the mouth. Beyoncé looked at least slightly uncomfortable afterward.

Of course, the Beyhive went apeshit on Omari’s IG page with lots of spamming with Bees emoji.
