The 2016 BET Awards!! Ok, I know it’s late so I’m going to make this quick. For the second year in a row, Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson hosted the show with a parody from the hit Broadway musical `Hamilton’. You can definitely tell that they have a lot of fun together, even if they get off on a tangent from time to time lol. I’m going to start with the winners first. Lots of new faces this year, refreshing… Winners included Drake, Future, Bryson Tiller, Beyonce, Michael B. Jordan and Taraji P. Hensen. Ummm really quick, did I miss something or did they not have a Best Female Hip-hop artist award this year? I mean they have it every year and Nicki Minaj wins every year, but this year Missy Elliott was nominated. Hmmm, now I ain’t one to speculate (insert smacked lips) but uh, isn’t a bit weird that the one year Missy is nominated along side Nicki that suddenly it doesn’t get televised as if they kinda knew that Missy was going to win and break Nicki’s winning streak on national television and that Nicki would probably be embarrassed and throw shade cuz she seems petty like that??? Idk maybe I just missed it when I was in the kitchen fixing my plate… I’m just sayin. The Lifetime Achievement Award went to the incredible Samuel L. Jackson, sooooooo deserving. Jamie Foxx and Laila Ali honored the legendary Muhammad Ali and the Humanitarian Award went to the super sexy Grey’s Anatomy star, Jessie Williams. Yasssss lawd!!! Let me tell you something… That man is incredible!!! PLEASE YouTube his acceptance speech because he brought some TROOF like no other has brought the TROOF before!!! We love you Jessie!!! Now my favorite part, the performances… It was a star studded Prince Tribute that lasted throughout the show. I’m talking Janelle Monae, complete with her a@*less pants. Anthony Anderson even put his on… When I say #dead😂. Hilarious. Erykah Badu, The Roots, Stevie Wonder, Tori Kelly, Maxwell, and the incomparable Sheila E. YASSSSS!!!! Girlfriend still got it! I gotta be honest, my favorites were Bilal who sledgehammered the stage with The Beautiful Ones. PUHLEEZ YouTube that performance. I was SCREAMING, you know how I do… Lol. And the fabulous Jennifer Hudson who SHUT IT DOWN with Purple Rain!! BABYYYYY! YouTube it!!!! Other performances included Desiigner, Fat Joe feat French Montana and Remy Ma, my GUURRLLL Alicia Keys (her red jacket gave me new life), Bryson Tiller, Future and Usher (where he been). But my absolute favorite, dynamic, powerful performance goes to Beyonce!! Queen Bey opened the show with her song Freedom from the Lemonade album. There was marching and dancing and fire and water and stomping and headbanging THEN Kendrick freaking Lamarr comes up out of the ground and DESTROYED it and I was like YESSSSSSSS, then HE started the stomping and water kicking then Beyonce AND Kendrick were water stomping and kicking and it was DOOOPPPPEEEE! YouTube it!!!! Whew, well I liked it. Fresh faces, new winners, good performances for the most part. Hmmm I give it a B-, and that’s a wrap! Peace…
