After handing the 'Black and Yellow' rapper his Best New Artist kudo, the 'LOL' actress reminds him to thank his fiancee Amber Rose as he delivers his acceptance speech.
Miley Cyrus has done more than just presenting an award at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. Taking the stage inside Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday, May 20 night, the former "Hannah Montana" star reminded Best New Artist winner Wiz Khalifa to thank his special one during his speech.
Upon receiving his award, Khalifa first thanked God, "because God is amazing - so amazing." The 24-year-old then said, "I want to thank my mom, my dad, my family, everyone who let me do what I do to get to this point," before expressing his gratitude to his label, radio representatives and the Djs who played his hit single "Black and Yellow".
When it seemed like Khalifa's struggling to remember who's to thank next, Cyrus told him from the side, "Don't forget your girl." On that cue, the "Work Hard, Play Hard" MC went on say, "Of course! My beautiful fiancee." As the camera panned to Amber Rose, he added, "She's my world and she puts up with my crazy butt, too."
Khalifa beat Big Sean, Bad Meets Evil, Foster the People and Scotty McCreery for the title of Best New Artist. Sharing his excitement, he posted a series of tweets that read "Best Night Of My Life So Far :-)", "Im Trippin Off All The People I Hugged" and "I Won!!!" His fiancee, Rose, also took to her Twitter to gush, "My Baby Won!!!!! Yay!!!! #BillboardAwards."
