BET Awards 2009

So, last night was the much anticipated BET Awards. I expected it to be mostly a tribute to Michael Jackson. Um, yea. Yes, they talked about MJ, yes they paid tribute to MJ but not as well as I, and most of the Black community, had hoped. I was highly disappointed in the level of straight up DONKEYNESS poppin' off last night. Here's a little synopsis:

  • New Edition - are you serious? I mean the Jackson 5 steps were on point, but the singing. O Lord the singing was horrendous! Ralph get your voice together. Bobby sit down!
  • Don Cornelius - was it necessary for your speech to be like 30 minutes long?
  • Ciara - who the hell let you sing? Stay in your lane and get the dancing.
  • Eddie Levert - leave the liquor alone
  • Ving Raimes - word?
  • Monica - FAB
  • Jay-Z & Beyonce - HIGHLY disappointed in your actions BEHIND the scenes.
  • Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, Jae Mills - GHETTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
  • Jamie Foxx - HILARIOUS
  • BBD - Killed It!
That's pretty much the gist of it.
SMH...all I know is BET better do a REAL Michael tribute and it better be right!
