My take on the BET Awards......

For those of you who didn't catch the awards, you missed out.  This was by far the best BET awards that I've seen in a long time.  I was more than excited to see Kanye open the show.  As arrogant as he is- you gotta luv him!  I am not gonna lie when he is off the scene, I sort of miss the kid.  The main highlights of the night for me was when El DeBarge came out.  WOOOO TO DA WEEEE!!!!  That performance brought back so many memories of my childhood.  Not only did El still look great (slick hair and all) BUT his voice was ON POINT!  These young cats could learn a thing or two from him. 

Another fav moment of mine was the infamous "Love Jones" Flashback.  When Nia and Larenz busted out the poetry skit-I LOST IT!!  Nia looked fab as usual and Oh Larenze w/ that "Brother to the night" poem-NUFF SAID!!!!  Chris Breezy definitely redeemed himself with an amazing tribute to MJ!!!  He left me speechless BUT not sure how sincere those tears were *sideeye*.  Now although this next tribute was a bit shaky for me, I enjoyed certain parts.  I am HUGE FAN of the purple one aka "Prince".  Yet, I was a little disappointed with this one.  Like really tho?! Where was the Raspberry Beret?  Lil Red Corevette?  I will die for you?  Darling Nikki?  *sigh*.  The only two who really did him justice was Alicia (homewrecking) Keys and good ole Patti LaBelle. 

Prince is not usually moved especially when folks cover his songs.   Although, when Patti got on that stage he was nearly moved to tears.  Oh, and let's not forget Trey Songz.  Oh Tremaine how I dig you BUT that rendition of Purple Rain:(  *crickets*. Prince gave him that look like "Get yo ass off the muthaf*cking stage b4 i slice you"...poor thing.  Still luv ya though Trigga:)   I wanna give props to Queen Latifah too who did a sick job hosting.  She took it back to the Cleo look and the Ladies 1st vid-loved it!!

Last but not least- The Aftershow hosted by Diddy. Oh where do I start?!?!  One word- TARAJI!!!!  She was a hot stir fried, sauteed MESS:(  She was sloppy drunk off of that Ciroc and didn't hide it one bit.  I was beyond mortified when she put on Diddy's chains and was bopping around like a hoodrat!  I was also super irked when she called El DeBarge "CHICO" wtf?!?!?!  Other than that, I really enjoyed the awards.  Not to mention the ppl on twitter who made it even more entertaining!  Good looking folks, lol.
