Awards season is officially upon us. This means the internet will see a slew of exciting celebrity crossovers in the coming months. Sunday (February 5) night celebrated one of the biggest evenings in music we’ll see this year, better known as the Grammys. Plenty of our favourites stepped out in their best dressed, including Cardi B, Beyoncé, and Doja Cat.
Now that COVID-19 feels like a thing of the past, many of them found time to pose for photos and videos together. Thankfully for fans, many were subsequently shared on social media. One name that practically everyone in the building wanted to meet is obviously Queen B. The mother of three left with four new trophies under her arm last night, as well as the title of most-awarded Grammy artist of all time.
When she wasn’t on stage accepting her various prizes, Beyoncé was kiking with other industry favourites. Among them is GloRilla, whose excitement was radiating in the adorable clip she uploaded to social media last night. In the three-second video, the “FTCU” rhymer smiles ear to ear and waves at the camera as her new friend leans in.
“I love you so much,” she gushes over Bey, who also gives the camera a heartwarming grin and giggle. “I met Beyoncé, bye!!!!!!” the rapper wrote in her caption. “My life is COMPLETE.” Coming face-to-face with the vocalist would surely be an amazing experience for any fan. As it turns out, though, the Houston native is one of GloRilla’s dream collaborators.
In an exclusive interview with Grammy.com, the southern rapper said, “There’s a lot of people I want to do songs with that I’m a fan of, but my top two that I’m extremely obsessed with [are] Beyoncé and Chief Keef.” Additionally, Glo listed Drake and Lil Wayne as other potential musical link-ups.
Beyoncé certainly stole the show – as expected – at the 2023 Grammy Awards. Still, she’s not the only Black female celebrity to achieve an amazing feat thanks to her trophies. Apart from the countless singers and songwriters who were celebrated on Sunday night, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom actress Viola Davis also left the building with a new accolade.
Thanks to her work narrating her own audiobook, Finding Me, the 57-year-old is officially an EGOT. This puts her alongside the ranks of previous champions such as John Legend, Audrey Hepburn, and Jennifer Hudson.
