Presented by Amber Valletta, the former Posh Spice recalled the earlier days of her success while punning iconic Spice Girls song “Wannabe.”

“I always told myself, ‘Dream big, and then dream even bigger.’ And I wanted to show that, if I can do it, then really anyone can do it. And what you can achieve really can be limitless, if you, I can’t help it, if you really, really want it, OK?…They told me at the table, they said, ‘You’ve come all the way from London, you’ve got to get up then and you’ve got to give them what they want, what they really, really want.

“So many years ago, I started with girl power, and now that message is still as strong as ever, but now it’s through the privilege of being able to empower women through my designs,” she added. “I’ve always been surrounded by strong, supportive women. And that’s as true now as it was back then. So, for all the women out there who have ever been doubted or doubted themselves, this award tonight is for all of us.”

“It’s so amazing to be back here in L.A receiving this award. I really consider this place to be my second home. In such a trying time, my heart really goes out to everyone that has been affected by the terrible fires.”

Emily Ratajkowski’s sexiest Instagrams of 2018

Originally published on AOL.com

Emily Ratajkowski has worked hard to break away from her “Blurred Lines” girl reputation.

The American actress and model has since been in a number of films including “Gone Girl,” “We Are Your Friends,” and “I Feel Pretty.” — but above else, her Instagram image has soared to the top with over 20 million followers.

The ridiculously good-looking 27-year-old is known to be a voice for feminism and is also not afraid to feel empowered by her body.

“I hope that with my modeling and with the things that I do, I’m able to walk that line and show young women who are developing and becoming sexual that they don’t have anything to be embarrassed about, and instead of being exploited, it’s something they embrace and feel empowered by, ”  Ratajkowski told Maxim back in 2015.

From posing in her own swimwear line, Inamorata, to showing her followers a glimpse into her married life with husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, Ratajkowski’s Instagram is a perfectly curated piece of her life – or a “sexy feminist magazine” as she calls it.

Scooter Braun says there’s ‘power in standing still’

Originally published on AOL.com

Scooter Braun didn’t take no for an answer when trying to get ahold of a 13-year-old Justin Bieber.

The mega music manager once started out as a party promoter until he found Bieber on Youtube and stalked him down until he got a “yes.” With almost no money left in the bank and a slight sense of hope, Braun understands that the hustle of his early days prepared him for his future success.

“What I can say I learned from the early days to now is that I didn’t know in the early days that there’s a real power in standing still. I used to think I needed to address everything, handle everything, go after everything and now I realize sometimes the best thing you can do when you don’t have the answer is stand still. Let people set the chess board for you and then handle it,” Braun told AOL at the 2018 Pencils of Promise gala in NYC. “Tomorrow always comes and the way you lose is if you don’t let tomorrow come,” he added.

With an A-list roster including Ariana Grande, Karlie Kloss and of course, Justin Bieber, Scooter Braun still finds time to pursue his philanthropic spirit — and even credits his mom for passing that attribute down to him.

“I got it from my mom. Even when I was throwing parties back in the day, she said ‘I need every other party to be a charity,’ so I gave her every fourth party. I just think we are here to serve and when we try to take, you end up in a very lonely place. It’s kind of cliche to say that but it’s the truth. The greatest joy you’ll ever get in seeing other people’s happiness that you caused. So if you really want to be selfish in life, make other people happy and it will make you happy.”
