(GEMS RADIO)—-Mary J. Blige was the recipient of the Icon award at last night’s Billboard Music Awards.

The legendary R&B singer and queen of Hip Hop Soul Mary J. Blige told the audience she was still in a dream in reference to her career when she received the award. Janet Jackson made an appearance to present the award to Mary J. Blige.

“I’ve been on this journey for a long time, one that didn’t always look the way you see me now, one that is filled with a lot of heartache and pain,” she said. “But God helped me to channel those experiences and emotions in my music, which is where I started in music.”

Blige was honored in a video montage with appearances from Queen Latifah, Gabrielle Union and Taraji P. Henson. Blige joked she was ghetto fabulous and that she still is.

The Billboard Music Awards aired last night live from Las Vegas.
