Anderson brought his mother onstage with him and dedicated his award to "the woman who raised me in Watts (California) and pushed me to become an actor".

"They said no Jussie Smollett jokes". No one will ever know how much that has meant to me and I will be forever grateful. What a waste of white skin. Do you know what I could do with that light skin? "F-king running Hollywood!".

"What the hell was he thinking?" he continued. You are known as "Jessie" for now on. You don't get the "u" no more. "That "U" is respect; you ain't getting no respect from me".

Jay-z has had stellar career as a music artiste; record producer; record executive and business mogul, having won 22 Grammy awards and sold over 100 million albums worldwide.

While Smollett read a prepared statement indicating he wants to get his life back after the charges were dropped, his lawyer Tina Glandian appeared on Good Morning America and indicated they might file a lawsuit against the Chicago police department.
