Later she thanked the presenter Jon Bon Jovi saying ” “I think you know this, but I didn’t come out of my room for a week when you married Dorothea! I was 8. I ripped your poster off the wall. And, I replaced you with Sebastian Bach. I’m very glad you found lasting love, but you broke my heart. I take this [award] as an apology.”
