The staff over at the HipHopblog.com wrote an interesting post questioning whether rap mogul Jay Z, his wife Beyonce and singer Rihanna all boycotted the 2010 BET Awards because they knew in advance that Chris Brown, would be performing a MJ Tribute on the show.

That's a lot of star power to piss off just so BET could score ratings with Brown's staged PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE act.

Not only did BET's brass allow CB to perform his dance tribute, but they also set aside about two minutes and 25 seconds of valuable air time to give him the chance to publicly flog himself.

By doing this, BET allowed their now stellar awards show to be used as a self-serving propaganda vehicle for Brown, who was not allowed to perform last year because Jay Z and Beyonce were in attendance.

In the year and a half since the now infamous beating incident, Brown has not shown one iota of remorse for what he did to Rihanna.

All of this makes me wonder what will BET do next year to win Jay Z and Beyonce back?

  • brucebaner1

    Who cares if they didn't come. They weren't missed at all!

  • lakercrazy

    come on now u think bet will pick cb over hova bey and rhi rhi hell naw i just think they had previous thing to do so fluk the bet awards

    No I don't think they did it's not that serious and Jay-Z hit a girl before and that was caught on tape so who the eff is he?

  • lawgirl

    USA Today has an article about a snitch claiming Chris Brown using eye drops before his performance. This is yet another scandal in the making. Using Michael Jackson's memory for his own personal gain.

  • renegadesince1985

    I didn't miss Camel and Bey....I think they didn't come cause they knew they weren't gonna win shyt... :rolleyes:

    Unless they have MAJOR ownership in BET/Viacom, who gives a flip? She should not have been nominated for ANY awards this year from a 2 year old album. :coffee:

  • MzDimplez1123

    Well, if it's true, that's Jay's choice. @ Lawgirl, I just dont think the tears were from remorse over rih (if they were real). More so a front or being overwhelmed @ being able to perform again.

    Last year when Chris didn't perform people tried to blame that on Jay and Bey. Jay already said he didn't and basically said he can let Chris be great. I wish others would..... :coffee:

    And Kanye opened the show so was there really a boycott?

  • His_Mommy623

    @mamacita

    Thank you...ppl take anything and run with it

  • Mamacita

    I agree with Laker... BET would not pick Chris Brown JAY-Z BEYONCE AND RIHANNA...that math just doesn't add up

  • meanNsurly

    I mean Jay doesn't make it a secret that he can't stand CB and you know Bey will follow his lead but this might be to the extreme. It wouldn't shocked me if it was true tho. So they wouldn't show up to the Grammy's if CB did? Thats crazy and they need to get over it if this truly was the case. I mean it is what it is. But I did miss Bey's performance this yr I'm not even gonna lie. Who cares about Jay!

  • CivilEngineer

    And this show was the best I've seen a LONG time so maybe Jay and Bey shouldn't ever come again...

  • Mamacita

    correction: BET would not pick Chris Brown OVER JAY-Z BEYONCE AND RIHANNA…that math just doesn’t add up

  • MissHarlem

    That eye drop story is mullarky damn I guess people are gulliable. No one missed them at all and to be honest that was one of the major highlights of the show.

  • aqtpie

    :rofl: @ Sandra!! So last year Chris Brown didn't get to perform during the Michael Jackson tribute because Jay-Z said so & this year BET didn't listen to him? Yeah okay!! :yawn:

    I was soooooo disappointed in BETS honoring of prince...they didnt even do any of the good songs, except purple rain (which i die for) but Janelle Monet? really? ok...

  • kdillon

    I believe BET would choose Chris Brown over Jay, Beyonce, and RIhanna because people were up in arms last year about Chris not performing for MJ Tribute... BET got alot of emails and flack for not having Brown perform. Being that the awards marked 1 year of MJ's death, I feel BET sacrificed the heavy hitters to appease people.

    I'm pretty sure the reason they didn't come had nothing to do with Chris Brown. Even if it was a good show it's still just the BET Awards. I remember one year hardly any of the winners were actually at the show

    It's funny how was Rihanna the one who got beat up and she's over it, but blogs still talking about it? Jay Z has other things to worry about besides Chris Brown performing at the Bet awards. He probably didn't show because they are normally rather corny.

  • Tyzgurl

    @MzD…yea he look at Swizz like “get your girl” :lol:

    @MzDimplez1123

    Yes, he did!!! Lmao.

    He was not enthused at all. Everybody can't sing everybody's songs. All the performers (including Patti's hollering arse) butchered his songs. Wait...I enjoyed AKeys (and she did my fav Prince song!)

    Denise Williams/Monica duet was a hot monkey arse mess too!!! Denise Williams sounded horrible!!!

  • ohpretty1

    @ OTB - With the energy she brings to the stage, Let's Go Crazy was so fitting for her to perform. I enjoyed it.

  • http://mobile.twitter.com/iamwonderchick2 LesBinLuv

    I'm confused...a year a later and he shows no remorse for what he did...OK...so to date he is supposed to be doing what...still on Nancy Grace apologizin, on Dr. Phil apologizin, pickin the trash in Rhiana's neighborhood or eve Barbados since he's finished pickin up trash for "the man"...I mean, what should he still be physically doing to show he's sorry after a year and a half...I think working on him and trying to become a man is sufficient enuf..BUT WHO AM I BUT A RHIRHI AND CB LOVER!

  • MissHarlem

    Prince picked every performer for his tribute thats how it goes when you are honored. I am use to Janelle Monae so I figured thats how it would be.

  • MzDimplez1123

    I totally agree. Alicia was screaming a lil but, she always does
    Patti was ok but, not as good as she normally is.
    I was shocked by how bad Deniece Williams sounded too. I guess that's why she wasn't mentioned previously. I was impressed by how good El sounded as well.

  • His_Mommy623

    @Miss harlem
    well ya learn something new er' day lol. I didnt know he chose them BUT I do know I was excited about the tribute and I was left wanting wayyy more than I got...maybe it was just me and my sister (the purple one stalker) tho..

    Here is a thought.....they decided to stay home!No scandal...no conspiracy....just simple WE ain't going this year. We don't have to perform...we don't have anything to promote....see ya next year.

    Let's see....50 cent, Will Smith, India Arie, Ice Cube, Tyler Perry, Dr. Dre, Lil Wayne...wait he couldn't....but yall get my point. Several people didn't attend stop making everything bout Bey & Jay. The show still went on....

    Just my two cents. I'm a woman btw

  • Destinee

    GET OVER IT!!!!!!

  • starstatus

    Of course they had something to do with Chris Brown not being their last year. This year BET chose Chris Brown over them because Beyonce doesn't have anything to perform. Interesting I heard she was performing a while before the awards but when it came down to it she didn't show up.

    Rhianna and Jay were nominated and didn't show up. It's so obvious the reason why they didn't come and it's funny they thought in their minds the award show wouldn't be good without them there. Proved wrong.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    BEYONCE IS ON HER BREAK, HAD SHE SHOWN UP, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN "DAMN THIS BISH NEED TO SIT DOWN SOMEWHERE AND HAVE OLE CAMEL SOME BABIES!" OR SOME OTHER IGNORANT COMMENT. SHE SAID SHE IS ON BREAK AND IS NOT PERFORMING ON ANYONE'S STAGE. THEY WERE SPOTTED AT A RESTAURANT IN NEW YORK DURING THE AWARDS. I AM ASSUMING THEY JUST DIDN'T WANT TO GO. HER ALBUM CAM OUT THE END OF 2008, VIDEO PHONE WAS RELEASED THIS YEAR, IT WON AN AWARD, THIS YEAR. WASN'T RIHANNA SPOTTED OUT WITH HER NEW DUDE THE SAME NIGHT? SO THEY ARE LIVING THEIR LIVES WHILE OTHERS COOKING UP CONSPIRACY THEORIES.

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    Stephen Hill: They missed the awards, because...we have this conversation almost every year. And, some years we are really fortunate when Jay-Z and Beyonce are in the house and other times, they go on vacation. But I can absolutely say without reservation that there was no conversation at all around, "If Chris Brown's coming, I'm not coming." That's just false.

  • BrealistiK

    I didn't miss them. I hope they skip all of the upcoming award shows.
