the award show was supposed to be a tribute to mj. they did like a five minute tribute at the end and the rest of the time jamie fox sang, collected an award, hosted the show, pimped his upcoming tour and sang some more. he even hosted the after show. it was ridiculous. the singing was all very live and therefore disastrous. beyonce wore a diamond studded swimsuit and sang ave maria. mj's father was partying it up with the rev. al sharpton. kanye's lady friend held up her red clutch to her face the whole time. lil wayne cussed like he was trying to create some type of guinness record. neyo was decent. there was no chris brown. there was no dancing. i only spotted one white person the entire time, the dude from entourage. it's like a celebrity contest each year. one lucky white person gets invited to the bet awards. here are some of my favorite tweets from the evening that i copied and saved just for you. pay attention also to the names of these folk.
