It’s always nice to give flowers to those who mean something to you while they’re still here. And it’s even more special when you can honor icons while helping the youth at the same time.
Queen Latifah has been getting all her flowers recently. After she was honored with the with the Jimmy Iovine Icon Award at the Revolt Music Conference in Miami, the Queen was front and center to be honored at VH1’s 20th annual “Save The Music” gala.
The female emcee was praised for her trailblazing contributions to Hip Hop and her continued efforts to make sure students across the nation have access to music in schools.
Wyclef was tapped to perform to honor his mentor. Queen was hands on with Wyclef and the Fugees back in the back, putting them up on the music industry when they first came in.
"Latifah is family. She’s magical," he said. “She’s been responsible for so many people’s careers including the Fugees. People don’t know that. Latifah put the Fugees on tour before the Fugees were the Fugees. She sees greatness. I love her for that."
The night’s honoree had loads of fun on stage and in the audience with "Power" stars LaLa Anthony and Naturi Naughton during the gala:
DJ Khaled was also honored for his musical contributions. The Miami producer and rapper Slick Rick stopped for a candid moment outside for the cameras.
Music executive Steve Aoki was also honored during the gala. Radio/TV personality Sway Calloway hit the stage and turned all the way up.
DJ D-Nice was on the 1s and 2s to provide the night’s tunes.
And here’s what everyone looked like on the carpet when they arrived:

Wyclef and Slick Rick showed off their unique fashions on the carpet before hitting the stage.
The reality stars were in the building as well. "Love & Hip Hop" stars Yandy Smith and Juju were all smiles.
TV personality Rocsi Diaz was also in the mix.
At another event…
It’s that time of year again. Hollywood’s elite gather together for the uber posh ed Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic held at Will Rogers State Historic Park in Pacific Palisades.
“black-ish” starlet Tracee Ellis Ross was dressed perfectly for the event. The EMMY nominated actress rocked a wide brimmed Eric Javits straw hat paired with marigold Céline trousers that matched the event’s signature hue.
Regina Hall always looks amazing and this all white laid back, yet chic, look was perfect for the champagne-filled event.
The EMMY winner linked up with YBF starlets Serayah and Aja Naomi King for a cute photo-op.
Other YBF guests included funnyman Jamie Foxx, actress Garcelle Beauvais, actress Ashley Madekwe, and E! correspondent Zuri Hall:
