A few years ago I made a silent vow to myself to never watch the BET awards again. But with the untimely passing of MJ and the reports that the whole show would be in MJ's honor with a star-studded tribute I figured...eh why not.
Folks, I was really proud of BET when the show initially came on (literally the first 5 min) BUT I also knew that pride wouldn't make it the full 4 hours. And so within 10 minutes of being on air I already had started a list of doing the MOST. Here they are in order of appearance:
#1 Tyra Banks and her wig...In Tyra's eyes, the lacefront wig IS the best thing ever invented. Tyra...WE ALL KNOW ITS FAKE. YOUR NOT FOOLING ANYBODY!!!!
#2 Jamie Foxx not knowing the show was back from commercial break. This actually happened more times than is acceptable during the show.
#3 Keri Hilson...I love her...I really do her style is awesome but her interpretation of MJ dance moves and her entire set actually were more "Grease" than MJ
#4 Neyo...KEEP YOUR HAT ON AT ALL TIMES. Especially if a close up is planned. His head looked like a big milk dud!!!
#5 Snoop Dog...what is your life about??? Dancing around on stage in a hot a$$ knee length leather jacket and a stocking cap. He looked like a crackhead!
#6 and #7 both go to TPAIN...The WHOLE damn bottle of Nuvo, really...seriously. And the "BIG ASS CHAIN"...DOING THE MOST!!!
#8 Tiny and Toya. I'm not even going to elaborate on this. Just damn ridiculous!!!
#9 Not saying the freaking nominees BEFORE announcing the winner. It would have been nice to know who else was up for the award BET. I know you were pressed for time but damn!
#10 BEYONCE...I am a fan but did you not get the memo that the nite was MJ themed not a chance for you to give us a snippet of the I AM...Sasha Fierce concert.
#11 Taraji P Henson and her wig. Clearly she has the same hair stylist as Tyra.
#12 "She can take me out...in this recession"...LOL...that was cute Mr. Foxx
#13 Uncle Al Sharpton...in the front row...next to Joe Jackson. I'm really not feeling Uncle Al these days.
#14 Keyshia Cole and her capris. I don't want to see anyone but peeps my moms age and older in capris this summer. Its 2009 folks let the capris go!!
#15 Showing the folks sitting in the nosebleed seats. OK OK yes Ray Ray and Bonquisha we see you now sit your ass down and get out of the camera...OH Hell... now you have knocked the camera man down...SMDH
#16 By far the best part of the show and doing the MOST at its greatest..Don Cornelius. I swear this segment reminded me of a family reunion. Tonight, your drunk uncle who likes to tell the loooooooooong stories that are completely off subject and have no point will be played by Don Cornelius. Oh the Hilarity. Did they even have the teleprompter up for him...cause CLEARLY the story was not on there.
#17 Tonight your Uncle who still smokes weed at age 60 and likes to swear and makes no apologies for it will be played by Eddie Levert..."People were dancing and shit"..."My name is Eddie and this is what I do". Classic.
#18 Tiny accepting the award on TI's behalf...."And you still the king baby". Sit your country behind down PLEASE. Some folks just shouldn't be allowed to speak in public.
#19 Young Money singing "Every Girl" about having sex with every girl in the world while Lil Wayne's preteen daughter and friends danced around Drake....WTF moment indeed
#20 ALL OF THIS NONSENSE AND THERE WAS NO BIG MJ TRIBUTE!!!!! WTF BET...W T F!!!
So there you have it folks...a broken vow just to be let down. I'm officially done with BET and it's award shows.
