Congratulations to all the BBMA's, Billboard Music Award Recipients, nominees, artists, supporters and fans. I was truly grateful to watch all the artists perform. From Taylor Swift's pastel color's, to Cardi B, Bad Bunny, which we could even re-name to cute bunny ; ) Khalid's mix, Mariah Carey's iconic voice, with one of my all-time favourite "Hero," Paula Abdul's tap shoes, Madonna and Maluma, Baby! :) Not to forget the country and rap artists, and the many other categories. I was so pleased to hear your acceptance speeches, and especially the idea of spreading love, through the platforms that artist's acquire. Truly one voice, or in this case each and every voice can create a lasting message upon thousands, millions. But what was even more inspiring to see was: within the competitiveness of the field and industry, we see artists supporting and encouraging other artists. Whilst we don't know what happens behind the scenes, in front of the camera, it was amazing to see this love and embrace from you all. While the industry is competitive, and sometimes does take an emotional toll, the stories must be changed to that of love, and embracing love. Don't be afraid to seek help when you feel challenges, because thousands, millions, have embraced you for your artistry. There needs to be a you, your existence first and foremost. You matter!
We must turn the competitiveness to one of embracing each other's artistry and successes. Create love and compassion from within. From the seasoned celebrity, to the ones who are just entering the industry - it is really a time to reflect upon the use of platforms. To truly not only spread love outwards to the world, but also inwards, within the industry, singer to singer, within the musical artistry as well. I once heard from an artist - that artists feed and fuel each other. I think that there is much truth to these words. Because we do seek to inspire. So it only makes sense to inspire, love each other, as well as the fans who embrace the music. It it with these words, that I congratulate you all, for showing love, care, and support. And even if there is a little, or even a lot of competitiveness, let's ensure that it is always healthy, not toxic.
