Drake was the big winner at the 2017 Billboard Music awards in Las Vegas last night.

The Canadian star took home an incredible 13 trophies, setting a new record for the most awards claimed by one artist. The record was previously held by Adele who went home with 12 prizes in 2012.

The rapper walked away with a host of coveted titles including, Best Artist, Best Male Artist and Best Rapper.

The top artist award was presented to the One Dance singer by Prince Michael Jackson, the son of the late singer.

Upon accepting the award, Drake tipped his hat to Adele saying, "I just want to say hold tight Adele because when a new thing drops you will crawl your way back to get the record back."

Other highlights of the night included a live performance from Cher who took to the stage in a diamond clad ensemble for an energetic rendition of hit singles Believe and If I Could Turn Back Time.  

Another throwback moment saw Celine Dion give a powerful performance of her classic hit My Heart Will Go On which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. (Yes, that also means it’s been 20 years since Jack and Rose broke our hearts, and we’re still not over it.)

There’s was a moment of silence for Audioslave and Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, who sadly passed away last week at the age of 52.

Miley Cyrus, John Legend, The Chainsmokers and Lorde also performed on the night. 


MTV’s annual Movie and TV Awards are undergoing a major revamp.

The ceremony will debut its new format on May 7, with a host of new categories and rule changes.

One of the biggest changes sees the introduction of ‘non-gendered’ awards.

This year, the traditional separation of the male and female categories has been dropped by the network and Hollywood's leading lads and lassies will instead compete in the same category, regardless of gender.

So, for the first time ever, Emma Watson will take on Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy in Best Actor in a movie while The Walking Dead’s Jeffrey Dean Morgan will go head to head with Millie Bobby Brown and Emilia Clarke for best actor in a series.

The move is a huge step forward for gender equality in the industry, and many are hoping other award ceremonies will follow suit.

This year also marks the first time in the ceremony’s history that series on streaming services and television networks can receive nominations.

Leading the nominations is Get Out, directed by Jordan Peele. The horror will compete in for the top prize of Movie of the Year and the film's leading man, Daniel Kaluuya, also received a nod for Best Actor in a movie.

Disney’s Beauty and The Beast and Netflix’s Stranger Things also earned four nominations each.

You can catch the full list this year's nominees here.  



The People's Choice Awards lavishes accolades onto some of the public's favourite stars. 

As with any red carpet event, the style stakes were high, and the celebrities came out in force to prove their fashion credentials. 

Here's the low down on some of our favourite looks.

In a dress that would make  Serena Van Der Woodsen proud, new mum Blake hit the red carpet looking drop dead gorgeous.

The 47-year-old smouldered in a sophisticated, long-sleeved dress by Reem Acra as she hit the red carpet without her new bae Drake.

Orange is literally the new black for model and actress Ruby Rose.

The androgyny queen proved that orange is the colour of the season in her striking power suit. 

Kristin Bell

Kristen Bell opted for something a little more unusual as she stepped out in a glitzy jumpsuit.

The wide legged, metallic, hounds tooth piece was busy enough is it is, so the actress went without accessories. 

Fifth Harmony

Fifth Harmony stepped out as a foursome draped in matching nude silks.

Using their outfits as a sign of girl band unity, the girl's looks all complimented one anothers.

Keeping things simple, the Twilight star opted for a loose high pony tail  and oversized hoops. 



Irish blogger Chloé Boucher has been granted the coveted title of Best Beauty Influencer by Cosmopolitan magazine.

The talented YouTuber has since taken to Instagram to celebrate the win with her 200,000 followers.

Alongside a post which shows her with the award, Chloé wrote: “Still can’t believe this.  I won the Best Beauty Influencer.”

The vlogger beat stiff competition to claim her title.  Those shortlisted for Best Beauty Influencer included Sophie Meola, Sophie Hannah Richardson, SophieBelle, Brighton Girl Problems, Pretty Ugly, What She Didx, Creepers & Cupcakes, Brogan Tate Xo and Mouldy Fruit.

Congratulations are in order for Conor McGregor, he was just been nominated for two ESPY Awards.

The awards, which are hosted by US TV network ABC, are for those who have succeeded in various sports around America.

Conor is up for Breakthrough Athlete of the Year as well as Fighter of the Year.

It's going to be a busy few months for the fighter as he's taking on Nate Diaz in UFC 202 on August 20.

Nate recently beat Conor in March, so it's going to be an unmissable match for The Notorious' fans. 


We think it's safe to say that whenever anyone makes a mistake now, we're going to say they're pulling a Steve Harvey, after his Miss Universe debacle.

Well, Jamie Foxx pulled the ultimate Steve Harvey at the Golden Globes last night when he was presenting the award for Best Original Score. 

He announced the winner to Straight Outta Compton – who didn't actually win – and then quickly retracted his statement, repeating Steve's "it's right here on the card" apology speech.

Now, of course, Jamie was joking, and the winner, Ennio Morricone, composer of The Hateful Eight, wasn't even there to accept the award. 

Instead, the writer of the film, Quentin Tarantino, took to the stage to accept the award. But in classic Quentin fashion, he managed to annoy people while making his speech, and referenced "that ghetto" in a bad light during it. 

So, when Jamie went back on stage to welcome his daughter, Corinne, this year's Miss Golden Globe – he took the opportunity to shut down Mr Tarantino, questioning his "ghetto" comment for the whole world to see. 

And of course, fans reacted on Twitter to the slip: 



A tint; a half head of highlights; a rinse – when it comes to hair, it's easy to fall into a major colour trap.

You rock the same old tresses year after year, and despite vowing to jazz things up with something a little more adventurous sticking to what you know is ever-tempting.

Which is why here at SHEmazing! we were SERIOUSLY inspired by the looks on offer at the recent Peter Mark Colour Trophy awards.

It's pretty much THE biggest night in the industry – and getting our hands on some snaps from the high-profile event has us pining for new locks.

Yup this is your official hairspiration alert: because if the international judging panel that flew in for the contest (fancy-pants) don't know what's what in the world of hair colour, then the rest of us are a total lost cause. 

The Colour Trophy winners


MC’d by the always dapper Darren Kennedy and held at the Double Tree Hilton Hotel in Dublin 4, an audience of some 700 gathered for the spectacle. 

On hand were the expert likes of Frederic Pavard (Alexandre de Paris), Gareth Williams (headmasters), Ian Brady (Cats), Patricia Strachan (L’Oreal) Holly O’Keefe (Peter Mark) and Michael Doyle (Peter Mark).

Young Colourist Of The Year, Sinead Keane


To rapturous applause, the Peter Mark Colour Trophy winners were announced as Lyndsey Corcoran and Danielle Brolly from Peter Mark Killiney. Meanwhile, the Peter Mark Young Colourist Of The Year was Sinead Keane, from Peter Mark Athlone. Finally, the Peter Mark Men’s Styling Award went to Rachel Flanagan, from the Market Cross, Kilkenny salon.

But for us, the high-point was the INCREDIBLE fashion show on the night. If you're in the market for something that's really going to turn heads – definitely take inspiration from the Peter Mark talent that was on offer last Sunday: #hairswoon…









It's one of the most stylish celebrations of the year – when a host of the country's most talented businesswomen come together for what is always an inspirational evening.

And last night was certainly no different.

Sandra McKenna


In fact, the annual IMAGE Businesswoman Of The Year Awards – which counts the likes of Katie Jane Goldin, Rachel Kavanagh, and Marissa Carter among its glittering alumnae – was arguably the most distinguished of the event's nine years.

In particular, here at SHEmazing! we were beaming with pride when it was announced that Sheology Digital co-founder and all-round wonder woman Sandra McKenna had scooped the prize for Digital Businesswoman Of The Year.

Olga Gordeychuk and Rosie McMeel


With some 750 guests in attendance, a total of 10 accolades were up for grabs. Fiona Flannery of DEPFA Bank was awarded with the Management Professional award while Bernadette Kinsella's worldBOX.ie was named Start-Up Of The Year

Anita and Michelle Murray


Meanwhile, Avril Stanley of Body And Soul was named Creative Businesswoman Of The Year, while head of CPL Resources, Anne Heraty, was given the overall prize to rapturous applause.

Also introduced was the Lifetime Achievement award – last night handed over to former chair of the RTÉ Authority and one of the founding partners at Wilson Hartnell Public Relations, Mary Finan.

The glamorous night was held in association with Samsung, Electric Ireland, No7, AIB, Kuehne + Nagel, Versatile Bathrooms & Interiors and Weir & Sons, and was supported by Newstalk, Independent.ie, Enterprise Ireland and Marks & Spencer. It was held at the DoubleTree By Hilton Hotel Dublin on Burlington Road.

In the aftermath of the 2014 Grammys – Taylor Swift was certainly courting plenty of attention, though not necessarily for the right reasons.

Although she was a performer on the night – as well as a high-profile nominee – the 25-year-old ultimately didn’t walk away with a coveted gong.

Worse still, video footage caught her bitter disappointment as it was announced that Daft Punk had beaten her, scooping the Grammy for Best Album.

"When they announced the Album Of The Year winner it was like, 'And the album of the year goes to… Reeeeeandom Access Memories, Daft Punk!'” Ms Swift has now explained.

“And they really dragged out the reeee…”

As her own nominated was entitled Red, there was understandably some momentary confusion. “For a second there, I kind of thought we had it, and we didn't.”

The disappointment meant the singer-songwriter wasn’t in the mood for partying. “I remember not going to afterparties,” Swifty added.

“I went home and I cried a little bit, and I got In-N-Out Burger and ate a lot.”

The songstress furthermore explained that prior to the ceremony, a load of fellow attendees had told her that she was definitely “gonna win”.

"I wish they wouldn't do that because you don't know if you're gonna win – someone else could very well win."

To add insult to injury, the Trouble singer in the aftermath sparked countless memes which captured her distress.

However, Tay-Tay went on to state that not winning a big award can actually prompt better music: "You can say, 'Maybe they're right – maybe I did not make the record of my career.'

“Maybe I need to fix the problem, which was that I have not been making sonically cohesive albums.

“I need to really think about whether I'm listening to a scared record label and what that's doing to the art I'm making."



At age 16 Ed Sheeran decided to drop out of school so he could spend more time dedicated to his music career. We feel like we’re not the only ones who might say he made a good call.

The chart-topping singer has been the recipient of many awards over the last year alone, and now he’s going to be adding another accolade to his mantel piece.

The University Campus Suffolk are honouring the 24-year old with a degree to recognise his outstanding contribution to music.

Ed said about the award: “I'm really grateful to University Campus Suffolk and I'm honoured to receive this Honorary Degree. I've had an amazing year with my world tour and this makes it even better.”

Ed has added that he would do his best to continue to support the university as they have done in the past for him and his music, reports the Daily Mail.

“Suffolk is very much where I call home and I'm always welcomed back and get so much support. Receiving this recognition is a real privilege.”

The Don’t singer has mentioned that he looks forward to “building links” with the university in the future.

This news comes just days after Ed hit the headlines when he unveiled his new giant tattoo.

The pop star was inundated with questions and queries when the media just couldn’t begin to fathom what prompted his decision.


Halfway and ouch

He took to twitter to set the record straight. He said he couldn’t understand “all this kerfuffle over a tattoo”.

He got the ink in order to commemorate his sell-out gigs at Wembley stadium and first revealed the body art in an Instagram post captioned “Halfway and ouch.”

We can only imagine, it is quite the piece of art.



Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj are the latest celebs to air their dirty laundry over Twitter.

The two songstresses have found themselves going head to head over their respective nominations for this year’s VMA awards. Although, at further inspection it seems like there may have been a miscommunication somewhere along the way.

The nominations for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards were released yesterday, with Taylor being nominated in an outstanding nine categories, including video of the year for Bad Blood.

Ms Minaj also received a hefty amount of nominations, including the nod for best female video and best hip-hop video for Anaconda.

But Nicki made no secret about how she felt slighted not being nominated for video of the year.

The Starships singers took to Twitter to voice her opinion. “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.”

As Taylor was nominated amongst Ed Sheeran, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar and Beyoncé, it is understandable that Nicki’s comment seemed like a dig at her.

Taylor replied saying “I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.”

However, Nicki’s reply made it seem as if she didn’t know what Tay-Tay was talking about. “Huh? U must not be reading my tweets. Didn’t say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u should speak on this.”

Could Taylor have simply misunderstood Nicki’s slight, or is Ms Minaj simply trying to cover herself after insulting an innocent person?
