Madonna & Prince To Be Honored At 2013 Billboard Music Awards

Published: Wednesday 8th May 2013 by Rashad

Pop royalty will be getting their due praises at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards according to recent reports.

Airing live from the Las Vegas MGM Grand Casino, allegedly feuding pop icons Madonna and Prince are set to be the night's honorees amidst a star studded performance lineup that will see the latter show off one of his latest hits.

Details inside:

Via Billboard:

“Madonna will be honored with the Top Touring Artist award at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards, an achievement earned by the worldwide success of her MDNA tour.

The sold out 88-date run was 2012's top-grossing tour with $305 million. [She] will take the stage to accept her award, with superstars from Prince to Taylor Swift to Lil Wayne set to perform. Other performers joining the ceremony include Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Miguel, Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez, the Band Perry, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran, Akon, Ne-Yo, David Guetta and Icona Pop.'

*******

Congratulations are most certainly due to the Queen of Pop and pop icon who, along with Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, and Whitney Houston, pioneered a pop revolution (and evolution) in the 1980s.  And, to this day, are still showing the young'ns how it's done.

The Tracy Morgan-hosted 2013 Billboard Music Awards will air Sunday, May 19 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

    MOTHERFUCKING LEGENDS!!!

    But… If we were to dig deeper, I think ‘David Bowie, Grace Jones & Debbie Harry’ should also be on the list 80’s Pop/ music pioneers!!!

    I can’t wait!!!

      She look like the muppet Madaam honT.

  3. JER May 8, 2013

    I love the Whitney video. Whitney was ALWAYS giving love to her contemporaries. She had nothing but praise for Madonna, Mariah, and all the divas. Whitney was not intimidated to where she lashed out at those who paved her way nor was she shy praising young talent. Whitney motherfucking where’s the receipts Houston! I live!!!!!!!

    • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 8, 2013

      it is ” show me the receipts” tho.

    • MC May 8, 2013

      Yes! You better speak the honest truth. Whitney did not have to wish death upon herself because of jealous, she just remained with or without success.

    • RoyalKev May 8, 2013

      So true! She didn’t fear anyone!

  4. POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 8, 2013

    I don’t know who’s prince is , and someone introduced me to his music and i felt he’s confused sexually, do not take it as shade , but i just Don’t know , i don’t like his music at all , but i know he’s an icon to some and i gotta respect that , just thought about saying this since we probably won’t get another prince post in this century.

    I Love madonna and whitney tho, congrats Madonna! 😀

    *plays i learned from the best*

    • Suicide Blonde May 8, 2013

      Shady b****, Prince is MUSIC. Listen to these songs, I would Die 4 U, Little Red Corvette, The Beautiful Ones, S*** Mother F*****, 17 Days, The Most Beautiful Girl in the World, Gold, Get Off, If I Was Your Girlfriend, Holy River or maybe Wherever U Go, Whatever U Do, you gonna love it.

    • Rosie May 8, 2013

      Of course a Rihgret stan wouldn’t know who a REAL legend is when they see one.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

        LOL, And a Lama Del Flop stan would?

      o_O how can you not know who Prince is? You really just shaded yourself.

    • truth(i will draaag the F*** outta icki and her stans) May 9, 2013

      U must b 12. U little b**** get off the blog and brush yo teeth! Little b****…

  5. BEYSUS OVER JESUS May 8, 2013

    Icons, Legends, Diva’s, Royalty = Madonna & Prince.

  6. Robyn Rihanna Fenty May 8, 2013

    I hope Rihanna & Beyonce perform this year, If not I’m not watching.

  7. MC May 8, 2013

    My king, congrats to Prince he more than deserves this acknowledgement. People sleep on him too much.

    Congrats to Madge.

  8. Lovebird May 8, 2013

    This is extremely well deserved, Madonna is the Queen of music and she deserves the honor she gets. Congrats Madge.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

      Gurl I still can’t get over pedastool.

      • Lovebird May 8, 2013

        There goes my dinner…..LMAO….YOU!!!!

    • Davis May 8, 2013

      Madonna is not the queen of music. Shes the queen of pop. Do not get it twisted!

      • Lovebird May 8, 2013

        Honey, which female artist has sold more records than Madonna??? I’ll wait.

        Which other female artist has out-grossed Madonna’s most successful tour??? I’ll wait.

      • Davis May 8, 2013

        That doesnt mean shes the queen of music. POP isnt the only type of music out there honey.

      • Lovebird May 8, 2013

        Honey, Madonna’s impact alone makes her the QUEEN of music. Stop denying the facts honey, the stats speak for themselves.

      • Davis May 8, 2013

        They call her the queen of POP and not the queen of music for a reason.

      • Lovebird May 8, 2013

        Honey, her stats and impact garner her the title of Queen of Music.

      • Davis May 8, 2013

        I am not discrediting her I am just saying its not all about sales and tours. She is the biggest female artist in POP culture/music thats the only fact.. You gonna tell me that makes her the queen of jazz, soul, RnB, Punk etc aswell?

      • Suicide Blonde May 8, 2013

        @David
        I don’t think she meant to say that Madonna created music but that she rules the music industry, as she is the most powerful.

      • Davis May 8, 2013

        Fair enough if he/she did mean it like that. But it made it seem as if she is the most impacful thing in all areas of music. We all know thats not true. I respect the Queen of Pop though <3

  9. SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

    Congrats to them!

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

        What’s wrong with it?
        I love Chris Brown.

      • Suicide Blonde May 8, 2013

        Xtina, da one.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

        wait, My avi is the one of Chris Brown at Grammys not Pigtina. Ugh!

    • DOSSOME May 8, 2013

      I loved the nicki avi…especially when the barbz were threatening u to take it off,lol.

      • Lovebird May 8, 2013

        Nicki is one of my fav, why are you lambs so mean?

      • DOSSOME May 8, 2013

        It’s vice versa dahling,but i promise not to be mean to her…unless otherwise.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

        LOL. The Barbz are wack! They desrved it for trying to compare Mariah and Nicki. The Lambs always stay dragging their asses with stats on twitter. LMAO

      • Lovebird May 8, 2013

        The only time I’ve been mean to Mimi is because MC shaded my fav. Why do you lambs shade one of my favs?

      • MC May 8, 2013

        @Loverbird

        Who is your fave? Rihanna? She never shaded her (or at least to my knowledge).

        Xtina? Because Xtina went to Mimi’s party uninvited and got kicked out; later on gave an interview to GQ saying Mariah wasn’t cool to her.

        Madonna? Madonna said “I’d rather kill myself than be Mariah Carey”

        JLO? Tommy Mottola took all the money and budget from Mariah Carey to launch JLO’s career and he stole a Mariah song to give it to JLO. He also paid radio personalities (this is confirmed) to trash talk Mariah and build a feud with Mariah vs JLo

        Leona? Because she imitates Mariah too much (never heard Mariah ever mentioning her)

        Nicki? Because of Idol

      • JOHNVIDAL May 9, 2013

        @MC
        LOL Just slay hun, slay

  10. DOSSOME May 8, 2013

    1.Mariah Carey
    2.Prince
    3.Janet Jackson

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

      I always thought Celine was your second fave.
      Great list btw.

      • DOSSOME May 8, 2013

        If it were during the 90s,celine would have ranked much higher,but as i grew older,i started listening to all types of music and my top 10 just stuck on me

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

        Are you watching Idol (dumb question)?
        So excited!

    kkk

  12. Suicide Blonde May 8, 2013

    What really happened between madonna and Mariah, this is what Madonna said in the edition of january of the Spin magazine 1996.

    Interviewer: Are there moments when you just say I wish I was Mariah Carey, just singing silly pop songs?

    Madonna: [Laughs] I’d kill myself.
    You’re inevitably called my boy-toy if you go out with me because people can’t imagine that anyone can f****** stand up to me, and it’s a ludicrous idea. I know the majority of Americans think I walk around my house, jodhpurs on and a whip. That I eat men for breakfast and send out my limousine driver to pick up bushels of young men and women, and I let everybody else make my business decisions for me. Even really successful, intelligent men are so f****** scared of me, and buy into the hype. I think a lot go, “no, I can’t be linked with this person, she may overshadow what I do.” So that eliminates a whole ‘nother chunk of people.

    But then, i don’t know if you guys lnows this but…interesting story.

    MARIAH/MADONNA 1999 collabo?>/b>

    “Mariah was interviewed on “Extra.” On the interview, she spoke about the collaborations she hopes to do on the “All That Glitters” Sndtrk. “There are certain songs I remember listening to growing up that make me relive moments in my childhood. It’s like that moment in my life is trapped within the melody of the song. So I plan to work with those artists and hopefully be able to recreate the feeling as best I can. It’s crucal that I try and be as true to that moment of my life as possible,” says a nostalgic MC. The list of artists and collaborators she spoke of are as follows:
    Chaka Khan
    Donna Summer
    Cindy Lauper (She spoke of doing a remake of Lauper’s “Time After Time.”)
    Narada Michael Walden
    Madonna/Patrick Leonard
    Janet Jackson / Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis*****
    Prince
    Sting

    For her movie ‘Glitter’,Mariah wanted an 80s-inspired Madonna-sounding track,so she called up Madonna’s producer.The result is “Angel Fire”,a track that William Orbit had previously started with Madonna.

    Supposedly,Prince gave Mariah a song for the movie too but she didn’t use it

    What do you thing?

    • MC May 8, 2013

      B**** stfu 🙄

      What really happened was Madonna was jealous and “Mariah is not particularly smart…..I’d rather kill myself than be Mariah Carey.”

      Deal with, that is the one and only truth. She shouldn’t have started something she wouldn’t be able to finish.

      Btw, keep Mariah out of your dusty ass mouth.

  13. RoyalKev May 8, 2013

    Congrats to Lady M & Prince! Love the Whitney video, I can listen to her speak all day.

    MJ, WH, P, JJ, M, CD, TB & MC is where it started and these Icons built the industry…

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

      Yes, Whitney is so….. REAL.
      I like her.

  14. SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

    NO!
    the #beautiful video is premiering tomorrow.
    WHYYYYYY?

    • Lovebird May 8, 2013

      I like Xtina, why????

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

        You do?
        How many faves do you have tho?
        Rihanna, Katy, Madonna, Britney, JT, JLo

        I don’t get why the hive are so pressed at you though. Because you stan for more than one artist, #iRespectThat

      • Lovebird May 8, 2013

        Honey, I don’t even hate ALL of Beyonce’s music, it is her mannerisms in the industry I cannot stand. The thieving and stealing is so unnecessary. A REAL MUSIC fan would never stan for back handed tactics in such a filling industry as music. That’s why I cannot stand Beyonce.

        But Ya, give me a good song and I’ll jam it, this is why I also like Justin Bieber’s “Belive” album and I’ve been called names for it. But hey, as my crush JARED has noticed, I don’t give a f*** anymore.

        Honey, even you can admit this is a beautiful song.

        http://youtu.be/5_hOl1tatNo

      • Fran May 8, 2013

        I am sorry but who you to talk about a ‘real music’ fan when you know none of the Hive personally. Beyoncé is not the only person who has stolen you need to get over it. Just because her positive aspects (which believe it or not, she does have) shine to some people more than her negative doesnt mean they dont know about real music. I am not excusing it but its like pot calling the kettle black since people like Nicki Minaj steal aswell yet you stan for her?

      It isn’t very nice. Xtina is losing the weight ya know. The lambs should be more understanding about the weight thing considering how much flack she got for it.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

        Lamchop, why must you do this to me? Trying to make me feel guilty. You are right though…
        I’ll change it, even though I don’t really want to. LOL

      • MC May 8, 2013

        Thank you honey lambchop ♥

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

        Anything for the lambs. And I love how you try to get my act together. You’re like the good lamb and I’m the bad lamb.

      • MC May 8, 2013

        Yes lol!

        Mariah looked so gorgeous on Idol today!

        Can’t wait for the video tomorrow!

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (COLLECTING WIGS SINCE MAY 15, 1990) May 8, 2013

        Yes, she looked spectacular. I was surprised to see her wearing that. Besides JLo, I don’t think there’s another female musician over forty (who just had twins) who could work that outfit. I just wish she’d stop trying to walk like that though…

        The video really needs to be released because the single is already starting to fall on ITunes. Hopefully it’s exposure to the Idol audience will bring it back up. I’m just so excited for the video. 2013/2014 belongs to Mariah and the lambs. #Emancipation

    Congratulations to PRINCE! Seriously now Madonna slutdonna? This b**** doesn’t deserve any award. Why are they giving them first? Where’s Music? Mariah? I’m so hating on Billboard Right now. Seriously? Seriously? Madonna? I would even accept britney to get that award rather than slutdonna

  26. MariahIsMusic1 May 9, 2013

    Madonna looks like a Granny more like a T*****

  27. the real xoxo May 9, 2013

    The Billboard awards are the most cliche, awful awards show ever.
    Its good that they are tributing Madonna and Prince though

  28. Spunkypoop May 9, 2013

    2 of MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MUSICIANS!!!

  29. JOHNVIDAL May 9, 2013

    So in these awards there´s going to be a huge bunch of non singers and crap artists and then Prince and Madonna: awkward. Well at least Miguel and Bruno will be there too

  30. Yessir83 May 9, 2013

    Congrats to them both! SN: Janet Jackson has more billboard awards than any other artist in history.
