During her acceptance speech, Minaj thanked everyone who had a role in her career and urged people to take care of their mental health.

"I wish Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson were here," she shared. "I wish people understood what they meant and were going through. I wish people took mental health seriously."

Minaj wasn't the only one to take a moment to speak up about important issues. While accepting the Video for Good award, Lizzo stressed the importance of voting.

"I don't know what 'music video for good' means, but I do know what your vote means, and that's a f****** lot. Your vote means everything to me," she said. "[Your vote] means everything to make a change in this country. So, remember when you're voting for your favorite artists, vote to change some of these laws that are oppressing us."
