After Roxanne expressed her excitement about giving the speech during the awards ceremony, saying, "your successes, I felt like they were my success," Salt and Pepa both expressed their gratitude for the path Roxanne helped pave.
"Thank you for showing up the way you did," Salt said as Pepa chimed in with her agreement. "It was really so powerful and so on point. And just to also give you your flowers as well, me and Pep, you are our example. When you answered UTFO, we were like, okay, that's how you get your foot in the door. So that's when we did 'The Showstopper' to answer Slick Rick and Dougie Fresh because as a woman, they ain't just gonna accept you — you got to make some noise. And you did that for us. So thank you."
