If you’re a longtime watcher of MTV Australia, then Ruby Rose would have been on your radar for a while now. But since she’s joined the cast of Orange Is the New Black, the whole world has been standing up and taking notice.
We could count for days the reasons why we love this gender-neutral, androgynous, goddess of a human being, but she pretty much summed up why we’re so smitten after her hosting gig on the MTV Europe Music Awards this week.
And her opening sentence won us over straight away. We knew then and there that Ruby Rose was going to do us proud. And she did. What were her words? They were simple. All she said, while addressing the crowd for the first time, was: “Ladies and gentleman, and everyone in-between.” Simple but powerful gender-inclusive language that has caused people to show their appreciation all the world over.
Here’s what some MTV EMA watchers had to say about Ruby Rose and her gender-inclusive commentary.
Some were impressed and needed to give the star props straight off the bat
