Dear God in Heaven! Why did I watch the BET Awards last night? Oh that’s right. Because they were honoring the other love of my life - Prince Rogers Nelson - with a Lifetime Achievement Award! I should’ve known better than to fall for the okey-doke.
Some of last night’s better (okay, fantastic!) moments included: Chris Brown’s MJ tribute – he did a great job! El DeBarge! Yeah, yeah, he looked a little….special, but his voice was on point and he took me back with his medley. Oooooh, oooooh and I like it! And of course, the recently released Clifford was there rocking the crowd with “Yeah Ya Know” and contributing to the painful-to-my-ears-because-of-Diddy-but-the-rest-is-okay “Hello Good Morning.” *Please note I was forced to add the preceeding sentence by a dearly beloved blogger whose name begins with the letters PSONYA.*
And now for the not so great moments. That would be the entire rest of the show. From Nikki M.inaj (ugh!) and her multitudinous wig/outfit changes to Puffy (ugh!), to J.anelle M.onae, T.rey S.ongz, A.licia K.eys and P.atti L.aBelle murdering my beloved’s songs, just boooo! I’m not sure who the committee was that picked these folks but they should be FIRED!!!!! And why didn’t they ask/beg/convince Prince to sing a song or 2 thousand???
That is all.
Oh wait, I did enjoy the DJ Kh.alid “All I Do Is Win” performance. But that’s mostly ’cause Aidan and Lovegirl – but especially Aidan – were going HARD with their dancing and musical stylings.
Did you watch? Did you like?
*We’ll try for another trivia contest tomorrow. Maybe.
