Jazmine Sullivan suited up to receive her award at Billboard’s 5th Annual Women in Music Awards last night, December 2, at New York’s Pierre Hotel.
Jazmine, whose sophomore album Love Me Back was released earlier this week, received the “Rising Star” Award following last year’s honoree Lady Gaga.
She told Billboard.com, “I admire Lady Gaga, so to be honored in a category that she was once in is such a rewarding feeling. 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.
