She took home the prestigious title at this year's extravaganza, which took place at the Ray Dolby Ballroom in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 30. The superstar was fresh off her epic "Carpool Karaoke" segment with James Corden, and set to be honored with the Powerhouse Award at the 2017 Billboard Women in Music Awards. "We've got to start respecting each other first and not with the beef", she added.
The "Love So Soft" singer - who accepted the Powerhouse Award at the event - is mom to two Remington, 1, and River Rose, 3 and step-mom to two children from her husband Brandon Blackstock's previous marriage.
Kelly also admitted she was "shocked" to hear of her Grammy nomination, "I thought I would be eligible the next year... but the song was released in enough time, and the category I'm in all the artists are killer".
The "Already Won" singer was given the award by her "guardian angel" Nick Cannon where the singer told the crowd "he's literally the reason I'm here right now".
Speaking backstage to Entertainment Tonight at the Billboard Women in Music event, she shared: "I'm very honoured".
"It was more or less a positive situation of women coming together and not getting pitted against each other. There are so many women before us that work so hard for us to have these opportunities and these blessings bestowed upon us".
