I almost decided to forego watching this mediocre award show, but I'm glad I tuned in.
Cher, Celine Dion, Drake and Bruno Mars were just some of the artists that hit the Billboard Music Awards stage. Since I am trying to approach life in a more positive manor, I am not even going to bother mentioning hosts Ludacris and Vanessa Hudgens. Instead, I'll highlight my top three favourite moments of the night.
This was what convinced me to watch the BBMAs. The icon received the Billboard Icon Award and performed at an award show for the first time in 15 years. At 71 years-old, she absolutely stayed when she performed her hits "Believe" and "If I Could Turn Back Time". Check out her acceptance speech below.
2. Celine Dion
How has it been 20 years since Titanic was released? Celine Dion wowed everyone (obviously) when she performed "My Heart Will Go On". The emotion and beauty was too much to handle. Take a look for yourselves below:
3. Drake (Insert multiple fire emojis)
Holy hotness. Drake was looking mighty fine as he beat Adele's record for most BBMAs in a year. He took home 13 awards including Top Male Artist, Artist of The Year, Top Rap Artist, and Top Hot 100 Artist. He actually managed to win in every category he was nominated in.

From ball gowns to pantsuits, and backless to covered from head to toe, this years MET gala was one of the most exciting in fashion that we have ever seen thus far.
The best part of the MET gala is to see how each celebrity competes with their fellow red carpet slayers in who wins best dressed every year.
I'll have to hold my hand up high and say that it was truthfully one of the hardest decisions in making who my favourite dressed celeb was. Heres a list of my top 5 picks for this year's MET gala super stars
Rosé All Day.
Help me pick my jaw up off the floor PLEASE! I'm head-over-heels in LOVE with this fushcia Chanel ball gown worn by the ever so chic, Lily-Rose Depp.
Leave it up to Chanel to create a modern, yet vintage design that has an 80's/Cinderella influence to it. Her intense cat eye makeup and pretty little updo take us back to the classic Audrey times which most of us ladies wish we got to experience.
Not only will this colour somehow make it into all of our wardrobes this summer, but this look will be one of Miss Lily-Rose's best ones yet!
Who doesn't love a sexy little mermaid style gown...in RED!? Me me me me me!! Emma Roberts resembled old Hollywood glamour as she waltzed the red carpet wearing a vintage inspired Diane Von Furstenberg gown. The dramatic train and subtle cleavage line had pretty floral lace which gave the mermaid gown a little extra sexiness. She was accessoried with a pink fur stole and had a new beautiful brunette colour for her hair that was styled in soft, smooth curls. She was the definition of Jessica Rabit the night of the MET gala.
Im pretty sure everyone stood dead in their tracks when Blake Lively and her hubby, Ryan Reynolds stepped out of their ride and onto the red carpet at the Met Gala last Sunday. She wore a gold, chainlink detailed down with a blue feathered train by Atelier Versace.
$3.5 million dollars worth of Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira Jewels made her glisten next to Ryan in his blue bow tie that matched the blue feathers in her show-stopping gown. Blake Lively always looks so well put together and glows like a golden goddess MAMA!
There's no doubt in my mind that Zendaya rocked. I mean ROCKED the MET gala red carpet in an a-m-a-z-i-n-g Dolce and Gabanna ballgown with the most gorgeous pattern. This was one of the most dramatic and daring looks without looking crazy (like riri and Katy). THIS is the sort of drama I want to see more of at the MET gala's.
Zendaya'a gown was a whimsical parrot print, off-the-shoulder ballgown in rich, vibrant colours which reminded me of something you'd see in the Louis XIV era. She literally wore a work of art which no one could compete with. In my eyes, Zendaya had the best look for this years MET gala. Thanks to the Italians, Stefano Gabanna and Domenico Dolce. Ciao Bella!
Kim Sans Kanye Sans Style?
I'm sorry, but I just HAD to add this to my list even though it was NOT a favourite. Kim Kardashian blew me away with how toned down and how NOT Kim of her! She wore an off-the-shoulder white Vivienne Westwood minimalist gown with zero accessories and a simple strappy heel. Her hair was as sleek as cleopatras lob and her makeup.. well it always looks perfect.
Her look was quite minimalist and made us all (I think) wonder if Kanye had anything to do with this and if he's taking the glamour of of Kim. Her sisters definitely screamed Kardashian in backless, skin tight, body hugging outfits that really made Kim's look a bit confusing to the typical Kardashian look that we all know.
Tsk tsk tsk Kimmy! We all expected more.
Holy Jesus! Once you start watching Riverdale, there's no turning back.
I, like most of the world, have been hooked on this show based on the Archie comics. Each episode has provided more twists in solving the murder of a popular high school student. It's a lot like Pretty Little Liars, except a hell of a lot better. Tonight, the first season will come to an end, and I can only imagine what's in store for the second.
There's without a doubt going to be a cliffhanger - or multiple cliffhangers - and I think there's still more to the murder even after they revealed the killer last week. I'd love to go into more details, but I don't want to be one of those people and give a bunch of spoilers.

Obese? Nothing I would consider her, even at 5'3". She is one bad ass little package, rocking two babies and holding down a career and a family of 4. Power to her for feeling like herself and embracing the body that blessed her with those two beautiful children. Although Pink is wildly know for her high energy performances and high standard fitness levels. She is taking her time this round. She has yet to share her latest fitness regime crafted by her celebrity trainer, Jeanette Jenkins. Who is a home grown Canadian Trainer known for her Power Yoga and Bikini Bootcamps. You can undoubtedly expect Pink is hammering through metabolic cardio workouts and fat blasting systems to get herself back in shape. The most refreshing part, she is not worried the slightest about the scale but feeling more like herself.
In a time of the Yummy Mommy invasion it is refreshing to see Mom's like Pink, role modelling a different approach to the postpartum fitness journey. It is not a race to the finish. It is about finding you and feeling like yourself in the newest chapter of your life.
Please tell me I'm not the only one that way happy the day American Idol finally said goodbye. I mean - how many American idols could there possibly be? Well, apparently there are still more out there considering ABC has decided to revive it. The only thing to be confirmed is that it's really happening and there are tons of rumours surrounding who will be hosting and judging. Kelly Clarkson's name has been tossed around.
Reportedly, American Idol's old home Fox came into the mix of networks battling to bring it back to life but lost to ABC (NBC also battled). I suppose at the end of the day, I wish them the best and perhaps they can do something unexpectedly good in the reality competition show realm. Only time will tell.
