The BET Awards brought out the biggest and brightest stars in Urban music last night. Check out who was in the building.
The most talked about moment at the BET Awards wasn’t a performance. Instead it occurred when superfan Tiffany Green presented the Viewers’ Choice Award with Terrence and Rocsi. She read off the tablet, announcing the winner as Chris Brown, but the teleprompter said Rihanna and Drake were the winners for “What’s My Name?” Drake accepted the award, saying, “Well that was awkward.”
After the embarrassing mixup, host Kevin Hart brought Chris on stage at the end of the show and announced that he was indeed the winner.
“Bawling backstage. They totally fu**ed me up,” wrote Tiffany after being bombarded by angry fans.
BET programming executive Stephen Hill admitted the error was BET’s fault. “That BET Awards Viewer’s Choice mix-up was due to human error,” he tweeted. “And I was the human that made that error. I apologize to ALL affected.”
Kelly Rowland proved last night at the BET Awards why she was indeed one of the founding members of Destiny’s Child. She showed and proved last night! Still on the fence about whether or not she was actually singing…(sounded like it was pre-recorded); however, she brought her “A” game. If you missed it check it out below.
Chris Brown and Odd Future are burying the hatchet on their Twitter feud. Following their heated exchange of words over the past month, the fellas have decided to put it all behind them and move on.
On Thursday, a video surfaced of Odd Future crooner Frank Ocean being chased down by Chris’ affiliates while driving in his BMW through Los Angeles. They screamed obscenities as they pulled up alongside him. The video added more fire to their escalating feud, but both parties are ready to call it quits before things get dangerous.
“This Shit Isn’t Gonna Stop Till Someone Gets Fucking Killed. I Feel Like Its Gonna Be One Of My Ni**as Just Skating Down The Street,” wrote Tyler, the Creator.
“Send 7 Dudes With A Camera To Make Frankie Look Like A Bitch, Like, Really?” he added. “And Its Not [Chris] That’s Doing It, Its The People Around Him. They Like ‘You Gonna Let Him Say That? Fuck That Ni**a’. This Shit Has Gotten Outta Hand. Real Shit.”
Frank chimed in saying he was done beefing and planned a break from Twitter. “alrite. this has to end. freeze on social networks for a minute. freeze on the internet. freeze on the matrix. real world time. brb,” he wrote.
Chris echoed their sentiments, tweeting, “This beef shit is stupid, @frank_ocean I respect ya music and you and Odd Future! Ain’t beefing wit nobody. Y’all can have that! Love.”
Tyler responded, “@chrisbrown Shit Got Too Real On Both Ends. I’m Over It. We’re All Over This Shit. Its Stupid As Fuck. Swag It Out.”
Game even stepped in to make sure things were settled. “Just got off the phone with my lil brother @chrisbrown & then @fucktyler. GET MONEY !!!”

Maybe it was the tropical breeze, but 50 Cent was not looking like himself during his trip to Aruba to premiere his Mario Van Peebles-directed drama Things Fall Apart at the Aruba Film Festival. The hip-hop mogul appeared a few pounds lighter and sported a longer gelled hairstyle. He had previously shed 54 pounds to play a cancer-stricken football player in the film.
The Beyonce full promotional blast has begun. She poses for not 1, 2, but 3 covers of W magazine. I wanted this record to come from a raw place,” she told the magazine of her fourth album 4, due June 28. “Playing Etta James in the movie Cadillac Records really changed me. It was a darker character, and I realized that if anything is too comfortable, I want to run from it. It’s no fun being safe.”
