Where Reality Meets Rhapsody

There was so much going on with that sham of a Michael Jackson tribute on BET last night, that I could bear to review it.  So I thought today, I’d just copy and paste my real time comments about the show from Twitter last night.  Much simpler for me…much funnier for you!

YES! I don’t give a fuck what ya’ll said, New Edition (minus Ricky Bell) served it UP PROPER BITCHES!! YES LORD, THANK YOU JESUS!

If Jamie Foxx and his sleepover with grown men having ass don’t stop talking about his tour, I’m gonna scream.

If you have to announce that you’re heterosexual, then your shit is questionable!

Now @_maxwell_, THAT is how a grown ass man should look at an awards show! Sang!

LORD TYRA, we all know you got a man girl, you ain’t got to asphyxiate his ass during the show to let the world know.

Y R people bashing Beyonce for not acknowledging Michael during her second award? She gave it up 2 him through the whole 1st speech!!

Get it NeNe! She looked like she wanted to say “Trashyyy Hoooka” LMFAO.

Did this nigga just do the splits???

Who cares if Chris Brown didn’t perform tonite. It’s not like he alone woulda made this shit better!

WHO was that in the audience with the two tone chia pet on the side of her damn head?

Can someone tell me why Drake is the great white hype again?  Shit was terrible to me.

Lil Wayne on top of Drake’s bullshit was like spraying perfume on w/o taking a shower!

What’s up with Lil Wayne & Drake pulling toddlers onstage during that performance. Future video hoes…smh

I know Michael J is SOOO wanting these thugs to stop saying his fucking name LOL. Perez, THIS is when you use thug!

Poor Janet!

Janet wasn’t even supposed to be there, is grieving and still looks better than everyone there!

Overall, the show was a HUGE disappointment.  Unless BET picks up The Game, I will never watch that network again.  Until they provide quality programming for black people, I suggest ya’ll do the same.

What did you think of this foolishness?

Comments on: "2009 BET Awards Recap – Twitter Style" (6)

  1. The BET Awards highly disappointed me. Not only was it a hot mess, but they decided to cut Chris Brown off at the last minute.

    Please sign petition for him to perform a tribute to MJ at the VMAs 2009.


  2. @Ky – I don’t know how necessary the petition will be. MTV is going to jump at the chance to put Chris Brown in their Michael Jackson tribute with ACTUAL dancing. Having a Michael Jackson tribute without dancing is like having sex without an orgasm.

    Don’t feel too bad. He was going to sing Man in the Mirror. No performance aspect involved and THAT is why people love Chris Brown.
    – Vine

  3. I guess I’m glad I missed the first 2 1/2 hours, although watching the last hour wasn’t really worth it either. I guess the highlight was seeing Janet, she looked good all things considered. I am a HUGE MJ fan and have always loved his music (and always will) but I have to wonder how the black community can embrace him sooo much when we spent the last half of his life becoming white! It’s pretty clear he didn’t embrace his roots and who he was (which is too bad because he looked a hell of a lot better as a black man). I guess if Eminem or JT want to be immortalized they should spend the next 25 years turning their skin some shade of brown, that way BET will tribute them too!

  4. Mr-Sleeper-34 said:

    Wow. Judging by these comment, the 2009 BET awards show was not that great. D*mn you guys are raping their (SO CALLED) performances with these replies lol. Was it really that bad? Geeeeez, I need to have a look for myself. Again, wow……Sorry MJ if it was that bad :-l

  5. @Mr-Sleeper – Yes, it was really that bad. Frankly, we were nice about it. BET and most of the artists really should be ashamed of themselves for calling half that shit a Michael Jackson tribute. Horrible.

  6. @Jizzle – The black community generally doesn’t think that he spent time trying to be white. We think he spent time trying to have white skin. Big difference. He had major identity issues b/c of that piece of shit father, but I don’t think he separated himself from black people at all. Quite the contrary. He was heavily protected by the Nation of Islam. His music is clearly soulful and he was very involved in the AA community.

    BET should be shut down for not properly paying tribute to Michael Jackson. What really pisses me off is that MTV is going to do him more justice at the VMAs and they’re going to use white performers to do so. BET should be embarrassed for that ghetto shit they put on the other day. Not only did Janet look deeply saddened by the sudden loss of her brother, she also looked disgusted that she had to be there with all those ignorant acting people!
