God it was painful to watch the BET Awards last night. I finally gave up about two hours into the three hour and fifteen minute show. With the exception of Usher, Ne-yo, Alicia Keys, and Chris Brown the entire show was one massive train wreck.
The state of black music is in a major crisis. I kept thinking it's a damn shame the music industry doesn't know what to do with a talent like Jennifer Hudson while I was watching Keyshia Cole sing off-key while simultaneously butchering her simple choreography.
A few questions:
1.Why in the hell is Lil Kim unrecognizable?
2.Why did Chris Brown not looked moved when the camera panned to him after Usher's performance? LOL!
3. Lord why was DL Hughley hired to host the show? Didn't his career end a while ago? He's so much better as a guest on Real Time with Bill Maher. The fool called Marvin Sapp "Warren" Sapp! And all of his jokes fell flat.
4. T-Pain. Can we say minstrel show?
5. Where in the hell was Janet? Or Beyonce for that matter, the show was screaming for real star power.
