Now that the 2009 BET Awards is over, the biggest controversy is not the fact that mentally impaired rapper Lil Wayne cursed and performed a track containing inappropriate lyrics while underage children gyrated on stage.
The biggest controversy surrounds convicted woman beater Chris Brown, who is upset because he was disinvited to perform during the telecast.
Word is that Rihanna’s mentor and former lover Jay Z blacklisted Chris from the BET Awards. Supposedly, BET’s head honchos also considered CB’s appearance a bit risky.
First of all, who cares??? And secondly, does Jay Z call the shots at BET now? Chris Brown’s career is over and that’s why he was asked not to perform. This nonsense has even made it into the mainstream media:
One source says Brown’s absence came at the insistence of the Rev. Al Sharpton. “Al made such a fuss to the BET executives that they pulled Chris,” says our insider, who adds that Jay-Z also had a hand in the decision. “Jay is a big name in the BET community, and he was very vocal about his displeasure with Chris attending the ceremony. He didn’t want Chris anywhere near the awards so close to the court’s ruling.” READ MORE…
The “source” sounds like an idiot. Jay Z is not a big name anywhere — Beyonce is. If it weren’t for Beyonce no one would be checking for Jay’s old azz.
