Wiz Khalifa Acceptance Speech: Miley Cyrus Reminds Rapper To Thank 'His Girl'

Posted: Updated:

Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards included some semi-decent performances, a few really exceptional ones (Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks -- we're looking at you!) and many awards given out to this year's hottest acts. The show's producers kept the artists' acceptance speeches rather brief, cueing the music up time after time, but one of the sweetest speeches of the night came from "Black and Yellow" rapper Wiz Khalifa, with a little help, of course, from Miley Cyrus herself.

The former Disney star-turned-stunner -- in her barely-there white suit jacket, sans pants and showing off some major cleavage -- gave a friendly reminder to the obviously nervous rapper to thank a special someone.

"I wanna thank God first, because God is amazing, so amazing. I wanna thank my mom, my dad, my family, everybody who like, let me do what I do to get to this point."

In a very brief pause in the 24-year-old's thank-yous Cyrus chimed in, "Don't forget your girl," to which he replied, "Of course. My beautiful fiance, because she's my world and she puts up with my crazy butt too." His fiance, model Amber Rose (who once was on the arm of Kanye West) smiled up at her award-winning husband-to-be from the crowd.

The pair announced their engagement via Twitter back in March, both tweeting pictures of Rose wearing a giant diamond ring. "She said yes!" he wrote, while she responded with, "He has made me the Happiest Woman in the World!!!!"

Khalifa won the award for Best New Artist, beating out other newbies like "American Idol" winner Scotty McCreery and Foster The People.
