Janet Jackson made a notable speech, which alluded to the #MeToo movement as she accepted her Icon award: “I believe that for all the challenges, for all our challenges, we live at a glorious moment in history. It’s a moment when at long last women have made it clear that we will no longer be controlled, manipulated, or abused. I stand with those women and with those men equally outraged by discrimination who support us in heart or mind.” Billboard
