"I'm going to thank a lot of people because a lot of people helped me with my success," she said during her acceptance speech, before giving credit to her publicist her management and even her haters. “They be downloading my stuff so they can hear it and talk crap about it but it benefits me!” she said, laughing.
And fans were thrilled about the news.
