Last night was a massive evening at the Billboard awards for Women in Music. Our girl Kehlani accepted her “Rule Breaker” award. Presented by G-Eazy, who has had a massive impact in her career saying, “She’ll break every rule and change the world because of it”. After accepting her award, Kehlani performed her latest break out single“Honey” on stage.
The night was dedicated to love and support as Selena Gomez accepted her Women of the Year award. Gomez gushed on stage stating, “I’ve never felt more proud to be a woman in the industry than I do today, and that’s because I actually feel comfortable with every single woman that has encouraged me”. She looked graceful in a black Versace corset bodysuit and laser-cut high-waist leather pants. We were left truly inspired to see women in the industry shine and get the recognition they deserve. At the close of her speech, Gomez dedicated her award to Raisa, the friend who saved her life with a kidney for a transplant Gomez needed with her fit with lupus.
After the award ceremony, Solange took to Instagram to make a statement about the remarkable night and honor. She was filled with gratitude and thanked “everyone who supported [her] journey and evolution and allowed me the space to get her.”
Who was your favorite female who got some love? All in all we were really happy to see all of the women in music shine. We want to see more brands step up to highlight women in music. Let’s make this a norm in 2018.
