12 Best Selfies + Snaps That Summed Up the Billboard Music Awards
Between having everyone’s fantasy bff Chrissy Teigen as host and premiering Taylor Swift’s epic new video, the 2015 Billboard Music Awards were a win before they even started. Britney and Iggy made all our ’80s dreams come true, Taylor Swift dominated as per usual and Kanye tried to break the censors. And while the show had many noteworthy moments, we like to think that the best moments are captured behind-the-scenes on Instagram. Scroll through for all the action from the Billboard Music Awards that you didn’t see on TV.
1. Martha Hunt + the Rest of Taylor Swift’s Crew: We have only one question: how do we get invited to be part of Taylor’s girl gang? Okay two — and where can we find that Bad Blood clutch? Or make it… ;) (via @marhunt)
2. Chrissy Teigen: Of COURSE cooking/baking rockstar and BBMAs host Chrissy Teigen stashed some of her homebaked goodies backstage. Fun fact: these cupcakes were actually made for Hozier. (via @chrissyteigen)
10. Bad Blood After Party: This technical TBT posted last night after the world premiere showed a sneak peek at what payoff is like in Swifty land: In-N-Out for all! We have to assume Taylor + the rest of the Bad Blood Bad Bitches had a similar wrap party last night after the awards. (via @taylorswift)
What were some of your favorite moments from the Billboard Music Awards? Let us know below.
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
