There were some serious WOW moments at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. Here are some moments that stood out most to me!
Miley Cyrus Rolls Her Eyes while announcing Justin Bieber as the winner of Top Male Artist. She started her introduction on the Billboard Music Awards stating that the only reason she was there was to announce her new single “We Can’t Stop”, which will be coming out on June 3. When she announced Bieber as the winner of Top Male Artist, she seemed to have a bit of an attitude. It will be interesting to see the direction that this new album portrays Ms. Cyrus. Lately, she has only been in the tabloids for her bizarre haircut, so we’ll see!
Nicki Minaj Gives Lil Wayne a Lap Dance. This performance was by far the most entertaining. Lil Wayne has been in and out of the news recently for his time spent in and out of the hospital, so it was definitely hilarious to watch him get a lap dance from Nicki, the artist he signed a few years ago to his label Young Money Entertainment. Glad she didn’t give him another seizure with that booty!
Selena Gomez Gives an Amazing Performance, but then creates controversy for the “bindi” that adorned her forehead (an ancient tradition in Hinduism and has a religious significance). At the MTV Movie Awards earlier this year, aired on April 14, 2013, Gomez also wore a “bindi” and was asked by Hindu leaders to not wear it again during a performance. Guess she didn’t listen!
Miguel Jumps on a Fan. Miguel decided that it would be a good idea to jump over some crazed fans onto another portion of the stage. Rather than hitting the stage, he landed on a fan, basically crushing her neck. He kept singing and remained unfazed by the incident; however, later he tweeted to his fans, “got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay.”
Biebs Wore a Diaper. It looks like Justin Bieber went with baby chic wearing a diaper at the awards this year. I don’t know why Bieber thinks it’s “cute” to wear his pants so baggy because he just looks like he’s wearing a diaper. Maybe he’ll get some fashion sense one day…
This years Billboard Music Awards were entertaining to say the least, definitely one of the best awards shows this year so far!
