Billboard Music Awards 2018

It’s been a long time since I watched the BBMA’s for the music, and last night was no different – with a few exceptions.  I realized when I hit 25, I no longer knew who even half of the people were.  As I was watching last night, I had every intention of taking really good notes and writing an even more amazing blog post on it.  However, twenty minutes into the red carpet I realized I was failing horribly.

I started off somewhat okay – I note that I love Kelly Clarkson, I’m excited to hear Christina & Demi perform together, and I need to see what JLO is wearing ASAP.  Jason Kennedy from E! News is interviewing Shawn Mendes (I know of him….but I’m totally blanking on anything he sings), but his suit is on point and he discusses being open about anxiety, so I give him points.  I have to a double take when I see Jesse McCartney – he still sings? I thought Beautiful Soul was his last hit?  I actually had to google or not that it was him, I was so confused.  You’re too old for this, E, I chastise myself, but I keep going, determined.  I see Dua Lipa and I freak out – finally, somehow I know, and LOVE!  She’s looking gorgeous and I’m so excited. And then Jason interviews Kelly Clarkson and I’m finally getting into this – I love love love Kelly Clarkson, she’s amazing, and that outfit is everything.  After Kelly is Derek Hough (who, by the way, looks really hot in that blue leather jacket), but I don’t really know him….I know of him because I know his sister, who happens to be best friends with Nina Dobrev.  (I act like these celebs are friends of friends wmoji LOL but I’ve always loved Nina, I was obsessed with TVD at one point in life.)  And then my notes go like this:

  • Who the fuck is Diplo?
  • Who is Bonnie McKay?  Stumbling in those heels, girl. I feel your pain.
  • Side Note: Jason looks really handsome, I really like him as a host.
  • Lusi Fonsi (he sings Despacito, I clearly wrote to remind myself) – he’s charismatic, charming, handsome.
  • BTS???? I’m way too old for this shit.
  • Ugh there are so many commercials.
  • OMG Chrissy Metz!!

And then I completely quit after I watched Chrissy’s interview.  I was still very much interested in the fashion, and then I decided I would focus my blog around that.  But before I get to that, I did enjoy some parts of the actual award show.  Kelly Clarkson’s performance was spectacular, and so was her speech.  I loved when Halsey presented an award and also spoke about Avicii and raising mental health awareness.  And The Chainsmokers acknowledging Avicii also really touched me.  I love when celebrities use their platform for good.  Please, let’s raise awareness!  Mental health issues, and suicide, are much more common than people realize, and we need to end the stigma. So thank you to Halsey, The Chainsmokers, and anyone else who may have mentioned this that I missed.

I probably won’t be watching the #BBMAs again (unless Britney is performing!), but I may check out the red carpet for some looks.  Here were my favorites from last night:

Kelly Clarkson – Queen of The Night


I am obsessed.  Those shoes are so gorgeous.  That dress is beautiful.  She is beautiful!  Loving her new blonde locks.  She just looks so happy and glowing.  Gorgeous.

Taylor Swift – Pretty in Pink


Tay looks so pretty!  I was so excited to see her at the BBMA’s also, since it’s been a couple of years since she last was there.

JLO – Red Hot Mama


When does JLO not look anything but perfect?  This look literally reminds me of the dancing salsa emoji girl.  Slay, JLO.

Dua Lipa – Your Royal Highness


Dua Lipa is looking beautiful and royal in a satin, purple ensemble – absolutely stunning.

Jenna Dewan – BDSM Babe


Maybe BDSM is taking it too far – but this leather, studded look Jenna is going for is giving me serious Bad Bitch Vibes.  Get it girl.

Halsey – Princess of Darkness


I live for Halsey’s every changing looks and hairstyles.  I love this black dress, it has such a dark feel to it, especially with her tattoos and black hair, but she still looks like a Princess. So dope.

Erika Jayne – Simple & Sophisticated


I love this!  Erika Jayne is known for her super over the top outfits, but this look is so simple, yet so chic and sophisticated.  She is looking beautiful in black, and I’m loving the pop of blue with her heels!


What were you favorite looks of the night? Or least?
