Paris Jackson addresses family issues after Janet Jackson performance

The 20-year-old actress and model voiced "love and respect" for her family in a series of posts on Instagram Stories after fans criticized her for missing aunt Janet Jackson's performance at the awards show Sunday.

The Billboard Music Award is an annual honour given by Billboard, a publication and music popularity chart covering the music business since 1990.

The awards show returned to the subject of school shootings when the singers Shawn Mendes and Khalid were joined on stage by a choir from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., where a gunman killed 17 people in February. "Thank you for making me feel understood again".

Janet shares her niece's thoughts on being a strong woman, showing compassion and being sensitive to others, which she expressed during her acceptance speech.

Kelly Clarkson tearfully called for a moment of change, instead of a moment of silence for the victims of a school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, at the opening of the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. She is the first black woman to receive the award.

It was a risky choice for a red carpet display as not only did the low plunging neckline mean Hailey had to make sure the gals stayed in place but she also had to watch that incredibly high split.

While the event marked BTS' second time at the BBMA - the act won the top social artist award at last year's event - it was the first time for BTS, or any K-pop act, to debut a new track at one of America's biggest award shows.

Friends, family and fans joined the worldwide music icon to toast her electric performance earlier in the evening.

"Our public discourse is loud and harsh".

Janet also talked about her faith, saying God is the "source of all calmness".

"Thank you, guys, so much for embracing a mostly Spanish song", he said.

Hitmakers the Chainsmokers and Halsey paid tribute to DJ Avicii, who died last month at age 28. "We're failing our communities", Kelly continued. It was an award show that certainly has people talking.

Amid ear-splitting screams from the audience, BTS jumped onto the stage and performed "Fake Love", a moody hip-hop track off its recently released Love Yourself: Tear album.

Salt-N-Pepa closed the show with high-energy, performing the hits "Push It" and "Whatta Man" alongside R&B group En Vogue and even Clarkson.
