Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran win big, school violence addressed at Billboard awards

“They also wanted me to do a moment of silence and I’m so sick of ‘moment of silence,’ it’s not working … why don’t we not do a moment of silence, why do a moment of action?” Clarkson asked her audience, stuggling to hold back tears.

Singer Janet Jackson was honored with the Billboard “Icon Award” while South Korean boy band BTS and Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello also walked away with awards.
