Jazmine Sullivan suited up for Billboard’s 5th Annual Women in Music Awards. The R&B powerhouse, whose sophomore album Love Me Back was released this week, received the Rising Star Award following last year’s honoree Lady Gaga.
“I admire Lady Gaga, so to be honored in a category that she was once in is such a rewarding feeling,” the Grammy-nominated singer told Billboard.com. “When I heard the news, I was so happy. I feel honored to be chosen as this year’s Rising Star.”
Fergie was also on hand as she was presented with Billboard’s Woman of the Year Award at the event held at New York’s Pierre Hotel on Thursday (Dec. 2).
