I saw the BET Awards like everybody else. I just want to say one thing. I love Hip-Hop and all that, but the rap acts they choose (Soulja Boy, Lil Wayne, Drake and the rest of them) seemed totally out of place in the midst of an awards show dedicated to the late MJ. Also, I could have done without the p###-steez during the Lil Wayne part. MJ influenced everybody, so I would have wanted to see them doing the same sort of dedications to MJ as people like Jamie Foxx and Keri Hilson. Anyway, that’s all I have to say. What did you think of Jay-Z performance? I thought he of all people could have done something for Mike considering he’s the memorizing raps king. LOL.




Over the weekend, there was a huge rumor that Chris Brown was going to perform in a dedication to Michael Jackson. Well, that rumor was supposedly a reality until the last minute. I was told that, because if Jay-Z’s huge relationship with Rihanna, he wouldn’t permit the young domestic abuser in the place to be – even for MJ. Now, I don’t know if Jay-Z truly has that sort of power over BET. Another theory seems a lil’ more realistic. BET just didn’t want the controversy of Chris Brown, who just plead out to felony assault, to be the hallmark of their event. Don’t you love how I just used the word “hallmark?” That was good. Anyway…time will tell, but I think Chris Brown would have pushed the Awards Show well over the top. See, it was my understanding there were




I didn’t make this up, but a source of mine that worked the red carpet decided to pass this along. There are some grammatical errors, but you get the idea.


Ciara has had a bad experience being on the red carpet when Beyonce showed up and they rushed Ciara off because of the real Queen B.  Paparazzi immediately stopped taking pictures of Ciara and got Beyonce (last year) so this year she specifically requested to come after Beyonce. (she then got mad at her publicist saying that her [beyonces] dress was better)


Timbo showed up with the whole family wife two kids and bodyguard but came late and had a hard time getting in.  they hadnt saved his tickets.  they had to get the head people from BET down there to get him in.


Jazze Phe walked on the red carpet and a bunch of paparazzi kept shouting RICK ROSS.

Taji Henderson’s dress was so amazingly backless that you saw the tip of her butt line (a##crack) and her sexy full angel wing tattoo thats encompassing her backside and lower back.


Soulja Boy would not let his partner Arab be on screen camera interviews and made him stand behind him or off the red carpet.


Rick Ross and Timbaland have a song coming soon.  Rick Ross asked Timbo why he gave “that beat” to 50.  Apparently that beat was better than the one he got.

Rick Ross did not stay for the awards.


Wale was upset that Paparazzi did not want to take his picture and media did not want to interview him.  He said F*** the cameras the world dont know yet.


Raheem Devaughn held up his boy Picasso (dc artist/paint) painting in his photos showing a lot of support.


Wyclef is the coolest dude.  came and talked to me about the situation in Iran for like 20minutes even though his publicist was yelling at him to go.


Alicia Keys looked AMAZING.


Paul Wall came with his wife the chinese guy with the teeth and Chamillionare.  They are appearantly thinking of working on an album together.


3 6 Mafia came with only 2 members.  They said its JUST US now.


Ray J didnt bring any girls but left with 2.


the OJs came in a white hummer that got towed while they were on stage.


Jaime Foxx was backstage cracking up on Cornelius while he was on stage.  Killed him backstage.  They had to make sure he wouldnt say anything to the crowd during the break.


Ving Rhames’ stage performance was definitely not planned and the BET execs were very upset about what he said and at Tyrese for telling him to come out.


Jay Z and Beyonce did not stay at the same hotel.


Baby (cash money) messed up his que during his performance.


Chakka Khan kept saying she was going to have heat stroke (it was hot) but she looked serious.


Omarosa would not LEAVE the red carpet and kept jumping in pictures with other celebs.  We had to usher her off.  Her mother was with her and was extremely nice but ghetto.


Kanye was there with baldy Amber (gf) and kept telling her to show her “fat ass” to the photographers.  He definitely smacked it when they got off the runway.








Surprisingly, there are very little rumors running around the BET Awards, but as you can see, there’s some eyewitnesses/ 


In the UK, Michael Jackson has moved into all the top slots on the chart, about 14 of the top 20.


Also they are reporting that the doctor for MJ, also the last person to see him before he died, was being paid by concert promoter for MJ’s tour. Hmmmm….


There are reportedly hundreds of unreleased MJ songs in a stash spot ready to be released.







This was sad. Janet is the best for delivering that message. I guess the only thing I can say is the ending was very somber.
