Katy Perry Presents Michelle Jubelirer With Executive Of The Year | Billboard Women In Music 2024

Katy Perry presents the Executive Of The Year to Michelle Jubelirer at Billboard’s Women In Music 2024.

Katy Perry:
Hi, guys! I walked slowly because I’m walking on stilts, you know, patriarchy. I am so grateful to be here today to celebrate my dear friend and iced latte hiking bud, Michelle Jubelirer. This is a woman who has accomplished so much in the music industry. After starting her career in mergers and acquisition law, she transitioned to the music industry and that’s where she clearly found her groove even with all those vinyl lead times. Am I right? Yes. She spent the past decade at Capitol Music Group serving as CEO and Chair for her last two years there. This made her the very first woman to assume that role in the company’s 80-year history.

During her tenure, the label grew its market share 25% year on year and in just the last year Capitol’s chart wins include hits for Doechii, Troye Sivan, Ice Spice, Niall Horan. But Michelle’s impact extends beyond business metrics. She’s empowered women as well as aligned with men who makes space for the divine feminine. Look, I feel like under this roof, I can safely say it’s a woman’s world and you’re lucky to be living in it. Her mind is connected to her heart and she has been a beacon for artists nurturing their talents and supporting their personal growth. She heard me, she saw me, created space for me, even supported me through my journey of motherhood. She was there for me not only as an artist, but as an executive on those iced latte hikes. We talked about artists development for the kids signed to my own very record label, Unsub. She always had time for me whatever it was about, but I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. Well, she has a deeply empathetic side, she is still the woman who has a nameplate on her desk that says f–k off AKA do not mistake our kindness for weakness. Queen, boss, punk rocker, this is Michelle Jubelirer. In celebrating Michelle today, we’re not just applauding her professional achievements, but also her profound ability to inspire, uplift and transform the lives around her. I’m incredibly proud to know her and excited to see her journey continue to unfold. Let’s hear it for this year’s Billboard Woman in Music Executive of the Year, Michelle Jubelirer.
