“What an incredible honor to receive the Trailblazer award,” Carlile wrote alongside a snap from her Billboard photoshoot, while Powerhouse honoree Megan Thee Stallion recorded a candid video backstage with Nicki Minaj, who received this year’s Game-Changer award.
Lauper, meanwhile, shared not one but two posts from the star-studded event. “Amazing night, celebrating amazing women!,” the star captioned a carousel of photos posing with the likes of Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift. In another, she shared a group hug with Normani and Hayley Kiyoko, declarling, “This is what it’s all about!…#WomenSupportingWomen.”
Amazing night, celebrating amazing women! @billboard #WomenInMusic Thanks to @maopublicrelations for the loan of the epic kimono by @chenghuaichuang & @thearchshow for the beautiful Earings by @leciel.design and ring by @epajewel. And thank you @xnikkixnyc @juttaannaweiss and @nafra25 for always helping me look my best! —
Hosting the Billboard Women in Music event and being surrounded by such strong, talented and beautiful women today – it truly was a #FearlessMoment. We are all working so hard to create change and inspire hope within this industry and the world at large. I am so honored to be part of such a fierce community of women. It felt amazing to show off my skin after completing my @olay 14-Day Skin Transformation! I never thought focusing on this aspect of my self-care would make me feel so good. I still can’t believe that I didn’t have to use anything but Ultra Moisture Shea Butter Body Wash to get this glow. I love how my skin looks now after just a couple of weeks! #OlayBodyPartner #ad
