The 2007 BET Awards SUCKED!

The BET Awards was a 3-hour LOWLIGHT. Here is what stuck out to me:

*They cheated Kelly Rowland w/ that JANK intro from Beyonce. How is B just gonna abruptly end her performance to half-heartedly say “Introducing Kelly Rowland”??? BOGUS!

*Why did Kelly sound so bad? Was she out of breath from dancing too hard? Yeah, CLEARLY someone’s out of shape.

*Who told Diddy that a light blue leather jacket is okay?

*Michelle Williams and her JUKE of DEATH at the end of the Beyonce/Kelly performance was ridiculous

*Why did Jennifer Holliday mess up that song SO HARD? And why do I know what she looks like when she CUMS? Must she make such an UGLY face when she singing?? Homegirl needs to look at the mirror when she sings so she can see the monster she turns into. AND, I swefo lawd, Jennifer Holliday is in denial that her time is PAST.

*Why was Monique’s Weave SUCH a mess??

*Why did Monique insist on wearing shiny dresses THE WHOLE NIGHT??

*Why did Lil Kim look like an Oompa Loompa while performing?

*Why do I STILL love Patti LaBelle, despite the fact that she looked like a Ghetto Geisha girl??

*Why do Black folks try to OUT-HOLLER each other during group performances??

*I feel like the Gerald Levert tribute was the ONLY thing worth watching, and even that was a bit of a mess due to the competition for mic time that the 4 singers partook in. “Wind Beneath My Wings” has never been so unrecognizable, but it was STILL the best performance of the night!

*Monique has become a caricature of the Black Woman Stereotype (loud and ghetto)

*Did Stevie Wonder REALLY do a gangsta pose at the end of his performance? Yeah, I believe he did

*I LOVE me some J-Hud, but how did she win best new artist when she doesn’t even have a CD out??

*Why must we invite Al Sharpton and his Perm to EVERY Black event??? I smelled the lye through the TV.

*I know I have asked this before, but it pops in my head EVERY time I see her. Am I the only person who thinks Diana Ross has been rocking the SAME Yaki weave and tracks since the ’70s?? I wonder…

*Umm…so is Bootsy Collins the modern day SAMBO mascot?? I TRULY think he is!

That Awards made me hold my head down in shame. How can there be so much BLACK STAR POWER in one room, and the awards show STILL comes out SHITTY AS HELL!! I’m mad about that. The BLOGS refer to BET as “MTV Shuck & Jive”. That was affirmed yesterday.

    The BET Awards was horribly Ghetto and was not a tribute but a true disgrace! First of all it was unorganized, the sound was horrible, and the performances sucked! By no means did it captivate the legacy of Michael. If BET was going to do ANYTHING, they should have went on with the regular program, had a ten minute tribute to MJ, and then in a few weeks scheduled a true night to HONOR Michael Jackson, with real celebrities who loved and had a real compassion for MJ. Jamie Fox was NOT funny nor cute. As I was watching I felt like it was all a joke or some type of Roast of Michael. Not a tribute. And What In the HELL was Beyonce doing, singing, and wearing? I wasted my time watching and waiting for the tribute to my man Michael Jackson. I pray for his family and pray that everyone learns the true meaning of the word tribute! Michael I pray that you are in heaven singing to the Lord and showing the angels how to moon walk! =)
