Woman of the Year

Ariana Grande has had quite a rollercoaster year, from facing her grief following the Manchester bombing attack in May 2017. to becoming engaged to Pete Davidson, to losing her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller. to her scandalous break-up with Davidson.

The 25-year-old pop superstar has barely had time to breathe, the poor gal. 

Her new album, Sweetener, has broken global records, cleared our skin, made us dance and not to mention was the impetus for her becoming the most listened to female artist on Spotify.

Last night, the Thank u, next singer was clearly moved as she accepted Billboard's Woman of the Year at the corporation's Women in Music event in New York.

"This is really special. I want to say that I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years in my career and one of like the worst years in my life," she artist said, as she was honoured onstage.

She added that she felt "completely undeserving" of the Woman of the Year title, and went on to thank her team but was too overwhelmed to remember everyone in her life who she wanted to mention.

Ari spoke about the dynamic between her career and her personal life, saying; "A lot of people would look at someone in my position right now as an artist that could be at her peak and think, 'She’s really got her shit together, she's really on it. She’s got it all…"

"And I do, but as far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the f*ck I’m doing." Ari has become a lot more open recently about her turbulent emotions, as well as her mission to work on her relationship with herself.

"It's been a very conflicting one, and I just want to say if you're someone out there who has no idea what this next chapter is going to bring, you’re not alone in that."

In true Ari style, after giving us a message of hope, she delivered a final silly remark; "I'm not going to cry, that's really annoying," she joked.

She continued;"I’m really looking forward to embracing whatever happens and whatever comes my way." As she wrapped up her speech, she made sure to give a shout-out to her BFF's Victoria Monet and Tayla Parx.

"I look forward to hopefully learning to give some of the love and forgiveness that I've given away so frivolously and easily to men in the past to myself, hopefully, this year," she declared, in a totally iconic manner.

"I have everything I've ever dreamt of having, and as of late I've discovered that it's the things I've always had and the people I've always had that still make me the happiest."

If you can't love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?, as Ru Paul declares.

Ari, treat yourself next year. You deserve it, gal.

It's the kind of love you don't expect to last in the hills of Hollywood – and yet, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are defying all the odds.

Their love gives us hope as their relationship has just grown from strength to strength.

Chrissy was honoured at the Glamour magazine’s women of the year awards, and John took to the stage to express how proud he is of her – and it was just perfect.

We need a man like John to gush over us and make a special night, that little bit extra amazing – Chrissy is a lucky lady.

Starting with some spicy humour, John introduced himself as a “trophy husband.”

But he quickly turned his attention to Chrissy, describing her as a star and the “heart and soul of the family”.

"I am very much in love with this woman…But I’m not the only one who loves her. Many millions of people who aren’t married or related to her love her too," he confessed to the crowd.

“Everywhere I go, I meet people, fans, who used to ask me for an autograph or tell me how much they love my music. Now, the number one comment I get from people who used to be my fans is how much they love Chrissy. She gets bigger cheers than I do at my own concerts. They love her," he added.

John touched on why he thinks she's such a hit with fans and has captured the hearts of millions around the world – and he hit the nail on the head.

He gushed: “People love her honesty. Her humour. Her beauty and style. Her passion for food. Her sense of adventure and fun. And they love her big, beautiful heart."

"The heart she wears on her sleeve. She inspires so many people and so many women. I mean, she’s the kind of woman you write songs about.”

And John did just that in 2013 and wrote the smash hit All of Me, which was all about Chrissy – ugh, yay for love.

The 39-year-old couldn't finish up his speech without mentioning Chrissy's bad*ss online presences. 

He said: “I think the world may have missed out on Chrissy’s full awesomeness if it weren’t for social media. She would have never fully shone the way she does if she were filtered by publicists and handlers.

“Chrissy’s biggest impact may be the way she proves that just by being the person you are, you can make a difference. Being who you are, unapologetically, you can make a difference.”

 “I am amazed by the woman that you’ve become. And I’m truly glad that the rest of the world has finally found out about it, too,” he finished.

The two of them were emotional messes as the model accepted the award.

Chrissy described John as the "most incredible husband on the planet” and added that "you are our everything."

“I didn’t cry during our wedding. I hate you John, I really do,” she said, later on, still touched by the speech – adorable.

The pair shares two children together, two-year-old, Luna and six-month-old, Miles Theodore.

Chrissy and John have been together since 2007 and going from their moving words about each other, they've truly found something wonderful in one another.

We do believe in love, we do, we do.
