Once again, I slept through the BET Awards -- or as my loyal readers call it: the EBT Awards.
I swear I had every intention of watching this year's show, especially since the good folks at BET always take such care to send me a credential request form every year, even though I never request one. One year they even filled out the form for me and sent me the credentials with a little note saying "your credential request has been approved," lol.
The BET Awards is the singular urban spectacle of the year that manages to bring together such diverse artists as Nicki Minaj (who has zero talent), El DeBarge, Kirk Franklin and Tyrese, and make it all work.
Judging from the tweets in my timeline from last night, the 2010 BET Awards was the best in years. Since I didn't get a chance to watch the show, the only Ugly moment for me was Chris Brown's fake tears. So I'm posting some of the highlights of the #BETAwards tweets from Twitter.com instead:
The BAD: I searched but I couldn't find a single tweet on my timeline about pseudo-singer Ciara's awful black and gold Balmain frock paired with ankle booties. Why did she even show up when BET dissed her azz by banning her "Ride" video?
