My Limited BET Honors 2009 Review

Hey folks. After the reviews of the Grammy’s folks been leaving messages on my Facebook wall that they can’t wait to see my review of the BET Honors, but I’s sad to say there will be a very limited review. I didn’t watch much of it because the Grammys had me Award Show and Performanced out. My attention span is already that of a Goldfish (3 secs), but last night, it was shot to hell. I saw the first 30 minutes of it and the last 5 minutes.

This included Stevie Wonder’s performance for Magic Johnson, Ne-Yo’s performance to B. Smith, and Yolanda Adam’s performance to Madea Tyler Perry.

I was glad to see Stevie Wonder performing without 3 corny White teenage boys bouncing around him seeping up all the Soul & Rhythm from the atmosphere. Stevie and his braids rocked the house (I’m really mad at his stylists though for making him rock the same look since the 70s with about 55% less hair and 75% less fullness to such head. But I will thank them for no longer including the beads. And yes, I will b*tch and moan about this EVERYtime I mention Mr. Wonder until they get that man a complementary hairstyle).

Ne-Yo’s fedora game was on point, as always. As a hat connoisseur myself, I respect those with solid hat games and his is so proper (because he has the hairline of a geriatric but I digress…) The dancer that was with him on stage ROCKED it too. I always enjoy Ne-Yo’s performances anyway.

Oh, I did catch a glimpse of Ms. Houston and I’m proud to say her hairhat wasn’t as askew as it usually is. It was very decent, and for this, I am thankful.

Sidenote: The origin of the word “Hairhat” came from when Me and KindredSmile were watching the episode of “Being Bobby Brown” where they went to London and they went shopping in Harrod’s. Well, Whitney had something on her head and we could not figure out if if was hair or a really furry hat. So we called it a “Hairhat” and TADA!!!!

Yolanda Adams and her magnanimous mouth, of course, came with it. She is one tall drink of water (No Ne-Yo). I love her presence and that chick’s voice is a boombox. I bet she don’t even need a mic. I bet she just uses it as decoration so less singers won’t feel bad (see: Any R&B singers post-1998). You best SANG, Ms. Adams!

Anywho, yeah so sorry but I couldn’t properly watch it because I was too busy watching trashy reality TV on vh1 being busy.

So, what did I miss? Yall fill me in. Maybe I’ll watch it on the Tube of You and write a proper review. Or not. Who knows?

    First of all, I’m still dead over no Ne-Yo although I was think of LeRoi from Fame when I see him.

    Secondly, I vote to retire Stevie’s braids as his hairline quit him two decades ago. That is all.

    Did you really say No Ne-Yo?! bwaaahahahahahahaha!!! OMG, I loves it!!

    You need to say something about Joss Stone and that corny choir they had. Really now? Just ’cause it’s Black Christians, y’all need to have that choir? I know you love them Ife, but it was way too obvious here.

    The only reason I was flipping back and forth between VH1 “I Love Money” (I’m not even embarassed by it, that foolishness is utterly hilarious to me. I look forward to it all week) was to hear B.Smith speak, and to see the Mary J Blige (Queen of Hip Hop Soul/Therapist of Hood America) tribute. I love Mary to deaf (yes, not death, deaf) and stan for her.

    First of all, Anita Baker KILT IT!!! She was the first person that folks stood up for (unless I missed it, ’cause like I said, I was watching Leiline talk about “having her man, friends and money all at the same time. Fairy tales do come true” *blank stare*). I cried because I love Anita, and I love Mary, and I know Mary adores Anita, and Anita is BACK…with her back. Sister can make J.Lo (and her over-rated behind) lose her self-esteem.

    Then when Monica came out and sang “Not ‘Gon’ Cry” I was laughing and smiling, because she really channeled the fun of Mary and the old Mary. She was hopping all over that stage and screaming for no reason. Good times, good times.

    After that, I didn’t much follow. I was too busy eating some popcorn while watching Buckwild try to stall for time in the Decision Room while Leiline’s slow behind didn’t even speak up until she was kicked off the show. She was a waste of space, but she shol’ was entertaining!
