Mariah Carey threw her tissue on the fans when she won the Billboard Icon Award

2019 Billboard Music Awards

Mariah Carey received the Billboard Icon Award last night and the whole thing became an instant classic. First of all, Mariah was, like, professionally cinched into some kind of Spanx harness and corset and then the dress was probably sewn onto her. All so we can say “wow, you look SO THIN Mariah!” Her styling was very pretty too – great hair, pretty makeup, and she just looked happy. Here’s the video of Mariah’s speech – it became instantly iconic because of Mariah throwing her tissue around the 50-second mark.

She performed a medley too:

I cut to the BMAs as Ciara was performing and without the close-ups, I could tell who was singing. I feel bad about that, because she sounded good and she looked beautiful. But I was like “who is this, J.Lo?” So wrong.

Priyanka Chopra attended with her husband Nick Jonas. She wore a J-Lo-esque Zuhair Murad gown which was pretty boring.

Country Diplo – when will I ever feel enough shame about my desire to hatef–k him?? Because even now, I’m like “I still sort of would.” I’m so sorry.

Drake won a million BMAs and during one of his speeches, he thanked Arya Stark “for putting in that work last week.” Drake tends to curse the women he supports though, so now it’s pretty much guaranteed that Arya won’t survive. *sob*

    I thought Mariah looked great, for her and her speech was good at times. But watching her walk in those shoes was hilarious.

    Loved Priyankas dress!

    Holy crap are those all of the awards Drake won in the bottom picture?! What the heck did he win all of those for?!

    • V4Real says:

      Yep, the most win ever in a single night. IMO, this wasn’t his best work but there was really no competition. BBMA’s lately just give awards away but I’m glad Drake won.

    Now, Mariah, she is worthy to be called an icon not like one of the Jenner spawn.
    I love her performance. I grew up with those songs and bring back so many memories of when I first heard it.
    Isn’t there a meme about Drake cursing anyone/team who he gets photographed with? A few weeks ago, I heard on the radio that there was a European team who banned their players to pose with Drake for fear of him cursing them to lose. Like what happened with other athletes who were photographed with him..

      Agreed, she’s definitely worthy of the icon label.

    • Miss M says:

      She is definitely an icon. She is so extra. I love it!

    • kosmos says:

      Still love Mariah today. Loved her speech–at least she can make fun of herself. She’s one of the greatest singers. There are only a few great ones, but she was blessed with that voice and what can you say to that? She may be called a Diva, but I’ve always followed her and I am proud of her for standing up tall against those who opposed her or were jealous of her. She has prevailed and has made a name for herself.

  4. Love it. Mariah looks gorgeous. ✨ And her kids are so cute!

    Diplo? Seriously, even after this picture?

    Kaiser we will have to fight over him. I feel the same way. Hahahahaha

    Priyanka Chopra’s face is stunning, that’s all I got!

    At least Trump threw paper towels Mariah

    Mariah gives me life. Always. The camera man constantly cutting to Taylor Swift during these shows-stop it. She always seems to find extra damn ways to be extra and make it about herself. It never seems sincere which is sad cause T. Swift prob means it, it just comes off awkward and narcissistic. Mariah been shouldve gotten this Icon award. But better late than never.
