Reporting Melanie Taylor
I adored the Teen Choice Awards last night. Even though I don’t have a teenager, my 8 old year was super excited to see some of her favorites likes, Bridget Mendler, Selena Gomez, One Direction & the cast from Teen Beach Movie.
As I’m laying in bed watching they give a special award to Ashton Kutcher. They gave him the Ultimate Choice Award which he called the “Old Guy Award.” Check the whole list of winners here.
While everyone was emotional over Lea Michele’s appearance and speech over ex boyfriend Glee star Cory Monteith and his death, I was mesmerized by Ashton’s speech.
Ashton directed his speech to the teens. Although, as a Mom, I truly related to it and really valued all he said.
He started with explaining that until the age of 19 he was Chris. That is his REAL name. Ashton is his middle name.
He learned a lot up until the age of 19. He learned about opportunity, sexiness and living life. Those three things he explained in depth to the crowd. It really was an awesome speech.
I took more out of that speech as a mom from Ashton than I have from a recent episode of Dr. Oz or Oprah!
