The mom-of-two also spoke about the difficulties of juggling her social life and her two children. “When I'm all ready, they're like mommy stay home. We want you to stay home. So it's not as easy as it used to be to get ready and go to an event. I have to make sure they're good and settled and then leave,” she said.
The We Belong Together singer was presented with the Ally Award by director Lee Daniels at the star-studded awards ceremony. In her acceptance speech the 5ft 8in star thanked the GLAAD organization for their unconditional love.
"I just want to say to everybody in the room, I know everybody wants to keep it moving, thank you for the unconditional love, 'cause it's very difficult to me to have that, I haven't experienced much of it. So I thank you--I thank you and I wish all of you love, peace, harmony."

The biggest surprise of the night was the attendance of Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence. The star, who didn't walk the red carpet, appeared on stage to present the Excellence in Media award to her close friend and Silver Linings Playbook co-star Robert De Niro.
Thrilled to be presenting an award to a man that makes her "feel like his daughter," Jennifer had some touching words to say about the iconic actor.
"As one of the greatest actors who has ever lived, you can learn a lot from him," she said."But the most important thing he's taught all of us is acceptance. Bob is the kindest person I've ever met. His heart is so giving. And with his own quiet strength, it is no wonder that this man and the incredible organization that is GLAAD would come together tonight.
The 25-year-old looked beautiful wearing a tight black top and a sheer black skirt with a mullet hem-line. The actress finished off her look by pulling back her blonde hair into a chic up-do and adding an on trend black choker.
