    I didn't watch any of this.
    I heard the tribute was nice though.
    Saw Kim Kimble getting draggggggggged, over Chun hair ... lol

  • pecancandy

    Thanks auntie. I love Ken and De’arra but that look in a NO.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Yolanda Adams tore it up!! That's all I got.

  • Marlika

    Why that negro Ken got on his grandpa usher shoes on?

    TI’s son with the dreads looks like a proud stude on Pride Sunday. ?

    Throw the whole red carpet looks, winners and performers away. Except Meeks, I heard it was a good performance.?????

    Oh yeah and Jaime Fox self hating black ass away.?

  • FukkFolks2018

    My FAVE part of the show. Yolanda Adams SHOWED OUT and I loved it.

    I got ? vibes from Jamie?! I enjoyed the Anita Baker tribute!... Nicki Minaj did terribly as usual, I enjoyed Yolanda Adams getting together during the migos set. The boo’d up song is ?? and have never heard of h.e.r but I’m glad I did last night... and like Charlemagne said Meek Mill has the greatest use of his platform last night!! Plus, j.cole o yes!

  • MsPam

    I thought Jamie ruined the Anita Baker tribute, Nikki please close your legs! That’s all!

  • Keyshia Ray

    Always felt that way about Jamie.

  • Marlika

  • Miss Thang

    I just had to make sure Messiah Harris is legal, cuz he's making me feel some things...whew

    Nicki looked TERRIBLE. When she was bent over in that red outfit, it literally looked like a WALL behind her but that was her surgically enhanced butt. Yikes.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    By looking at some of the ladies choices of clothing, hair and makeup I'm not the only one watching POSE on Fx. Do they purposely go for the drag look?

  • SpillyNillie

  • BrownIsBack

    I heard that over 15 years ago from someone who allegedly partied with him

  • MissHarlem

    Same company Viacom mtv etc so that's why all of those channels play the BET awards.

  • Coy little wink

    Nicki is an old hoe she need to let it go...time for classy not trashy

  • Kayke

    Cover your thighs and ass if you dont put effort in keeping them tight.
    The clothing styles looked like they all belonged on a show called "what not to wear". Amber Heauxs was covered and looked kind of dainty. Nicki's people hopefully was waiting back stage with the vagisil, monestat, and diflucan....because her poor lady parts looked choked and suffocated. A hot mess....if sandra was giving out roses....this deserved thorns only.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Kayke

    Congrats to Anita! Well deserved.

  • BingBangBoom

    Is this Nicki and Safaree first public encounter with each other since the break - up? also how does this work with your exs in the building watching you perform? Is it awkward?

    No pics of Mr. and Mrs. Gucci Mane Davis? They were the only ones ironically that looked like they were going to an awards show. IJS.

  • BingBangBoom

    Chyna looking like a older India Westbrook. Ouch!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I was kinda underwhelmed by the tribute segment. The performers did a great job (specifically Yolanda), but it was really short to me. But then again, I'm not that familiar with Anita's body of work. Perhaps it isn't that big. Idk.

  • BrownIsBack

    How did Chyna and Amber get invites smh. So Safari thought his baby oiled chest needed to be on display???

  • Trace da Ace

    for real.....MY OPINION.....Nikki's performance seemed a little thirsty....like all the gyrating on the floor and legs wide open like that.....seemed a tad bit trashy for her....I mean not saying that she has EVER been the delicate little flower...but she was extra raunchy and really gave no shits about the lyrics of the songs....this is not the same Nikki....seems like a "last ditch" effort to remain relevant.....hate it for her...but damn...still have some couth about yourself....have something that separates you from the rest...not lump you into the category of "stank hoe"...

  • FukkFolks2018

    I know the feeling.

  • SoulfulLove

    that up close pic of Chyna tho.. Her face looks swollen or something

  • SoulfulLove

    by doing something a little strange for some change

  • Kemi

    Ledisi is soooo underrated... I’ve always enjoyed her songs.

  • Ni Ni

    I tuned in just in time for Anita's tribute, missed Jamie's part. I learned that Marsha Ambrosia has a very limited range; I just smh during her performance...she yodeled her way through it. Yolanda killed it, although i really wanted to hear Anita sing.

    Quick question - how come our current queen never does tributes like these? I never see her do a medley with other artists like Whitney, Patti, even Ledisi and others have done in the past. I always hear about these octaves she has, but why doesn't she showcase it among the best. Is the queen a fraud, vocally? Selfish?

    The EBT awards was live and in full effect. Nipsey bytch slapping folks, Onika's fake cakes sprawled out on the stage all awkward, and old $2 hoes like Ambwhore and Black Chlamydia scurrying about. Yep, sounds about right...

  • Miss Thang

    she's an amazing artist.

  • Joy King

    I believe it’s from weight gain. If you have plastic surgery and don’t exercise, any excessive fat goes in all the wrong places. It will give you more of a bloated look like Nikki has.

    She sang on an awards show about 8-9 yrs ago and one of the students was so excited when he came to school, he couldnt stop talking about how he enjoyed her performance and how she kicked her shoes off, lol . I was glad he had a chance to witness and appreciate a true artist.

  • Kemi

    Yes she is one of the best artists out there.

  • Renee26

    Safaree looks delicious! Nicki looks a mess in both get ups

    Tami looks cute in the black, her jogging suit was too big in the bottom

    Yandi looks cute covered up

    Amber Rose looks vampire like and that dress wasn't flattering. Chyna pulled her look off well.

  • KcoolMuziq

    “The last person I ever thought would be addicted to drugs and die from an overdose”.

    Prince became addicted to PAIN MEDICATION from years of being in unavoidable pain from his acrobatic dancing and hip surgery. Which he had hid miraculously from his adoring loyal fan-base.

    Prince died from an ACCIDENTAL overdose. From being UNAWARE, that the illicit pills that he recently started taking was unknowingly laced with a lethal dose of the deadly sedative Fentanyl.

    Prince WAS NOT a drug addict or had any disease with a little name. He was a devout Jehovah Witness and ate a carefully prepared vegan diet from his personal chef.

  • Connie

    I can honestly say almost all her songs have been my life. She's on rotation in my car most days. My 25 year old daughter was riding with me one day when I put her on. This girl put in her earpiece talkin bout she can't take Anita with her 'whining' today. I told her girl you better learn to appreciate the legend!

    Meek for the Win. J Cole, H.E.R, Snoop Dog, and Ledsi and Yolanda tribute to Anita Baker were my favorites as well.

    *Ella Mai- Get a pass because she is new and just sounded like she was nervous. But still did a good job.
    * Miguel didn't sound that great but still love his music.
    *Janelle theme was cool and I liked her performance, just not really a fan for her music.
    *Migos for them to be young all they did was bop around like old men...but they songs are definitely club bangers...but I was not impress with the performance.
    *Nicki Nicki- Nicki dam where do I begin? Shit was horrible and Trashy and I was not impressed. I was actually embarrassed.

    I looked at all the pictures before I post this comment. Folks let me tell you what I'm about to do. I saw Anita's hair, busted out laughing. Picked up my laptop and went to the IT peeps and asked for a air card to work outside on the picnic table....I'm not getting kicked out of this building...LOL...It's nice outside and not to hot in the shade. There is a slight breeze today....SMH...LOL and reading these comments as well....I will stay out here for about an hour and go back and not return to this post.....Usually I go home earlier.....LOL...but today it's a little to early go home.

    I was going to....then I remembered she is my one and only and I can't, won't...shan't have anymore kids.

    Well being they both were let go by Nicki I just wondered how they felt. I only had two exs and you're right I don't give a f*ck lol

  • BingBangBoom

    But then again I broke it off so I don't know how they feel.

  • Blue

    Call the morgue. Yolanda killed that tribute. She sang that thing.

  • Joy King

    Thank you for clarifying. I had a great deal of respect for Prince’s work ethic and the way he seemed to live a very clean lifestyle, meaning what he put in his body. So the drug overdose seemed to go against all that but now I understand.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Yes I wish she could perform at my wedding

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    OK...just a few things. Bobby and his family look nice (he as the strongest DNA in the world) that little boy is his spitting image. Marsha got some big azz feetz!! mmmkay!! Nicki needs to fire her stylist because that camel toe looks yeast inducing. Amber looks cute with her long hair, Chyna bless her heart! Safaree fine as fawk and he could definitely get this smoke!! I would never go to a Migos concert!

  • Crazy tee

    I think Janae is beautiful but she can’t come up in there looking like Rainbow Brite....

  • Kimberly King

    Chile Chile Chile ....... I don’t even know where to start. Too many atrocities in one post. Anita is a legend and one of my faves. So I’m gonna leave her wig alone. I like Nicki, but I’m just tired of her wardrobe choices. Like bitch you damn near 40. Do better. Then her tracks were slipping out the wig ! Who are these nobody ass YouTube “stars?” Never heard of them. Her feet are UGLY ! And I’m over Janelle and her Illuminati pattern wearing ass. It’s obvious they don’t wanna initiate you !

  • Melinated Goddess??

    I want to be Safaree's woman, wife, wifey , baby girl, love, baby mama etc. That man is so damn fine.

  • Guess Who

    CRINE! Oh how I strive to be on this level of funny!!!!

  • Guess Who

    You think so? He's so...small.

    WELL HOLD ON...his peen is huge but the rest of him...is so....petite, lol. Only if he had another foot of height but instead it's in his pants. Hey, I ain't knocking that though. Pop a pain med about a half hour prior to smashing him or take a few shots of GIN and the sensation would be pretty nice....

    CTFU!

  • Coco_Butter

    I’m obsessed with Will you be mine and Giving you the best that I got
    Love love Anita legend

  • hi-liter

    Yeah...and got a big dack. I see why Nicki was with that nigga for so long.

  • Renee26

    He rubbed extra coconut oil on his chest just for you guuurl

  • Guess Who

    YEP...big, curved and just...heavily swayed back and forth in that video.

    Not that I remembered it all that well...

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Worst EBT awards EVER, in 2009 although sad Jamie pulled off that one. Not this time...it was godawful except J. Cole, HER and the Anita Baker segment.

  • Scorpio

    Cracking up at Nicki Minaj when near the end of her performance she laid down on the stage opened her legs showing her twat and the spot light went out. I have to say, I like the message Anita gave about letting singers sing, rappers rap and live music, but what irritates me about her is that she always seems to be running away from her artistry, never performing, retiring and all that, but then she lightweight criticizes the artists today who lack the knowledge of those who came before and the protocols they should be upholding in their careers. Personally I feel like they need to see more of you Ms. Anita and all the others who are the true singers and performers.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!! That's my man!!!!

  • Vegas1989

    Well you should have circled the block. My daddy did that to me and I cried because he left me at the store because I was bull jiving and wouldn't think he would leave me....LOL..I was about eleven-teen years old....just trying to grow up fast....LOL

  • Scorpio

    Yes I like Marsha, but her voice is as though she trying not to go into a full goat call. Like if it goes to high it going to slip into a baabaa with no control. Honestly I don't see Bey doing tributes, her voice doesn't seem the type that can play well with others.

  • nicfury420

    Hahahhaaaaa!!! ???

  • Connie

    Lol. Your daddy was wrong for that, but I bet you learnt that day....

  • Logan Roberts

    I love Anita Baker?. I had forgot all about Ledisi ??Pieces of me ??

  • Applebootay

    I only see one thing when I see Safaree

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Bey was great in Stevie's tribute and I'm Not a Big Bey fan.

  • Guess Who

    SPOT ON assessment!

    BTW, she looks like she um...doesn't wash in between things (on her body).

  • Shira Harding-James

    Wait you said EBT

  • Dollface

    was that EBT intentional? Because that the name of the foodstamp card where I live bwhaaaaaaa

  • Shira Harding-James

    And always moisturized

  • Shira Harding-James

    I’ll take the GIN for 500 Alex

  • Melinated Goddess??

    He looks like he smells soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo delicious. I have a friend that went to the same highschool as him. I've seen his family in passing before. I want him. Lawd. Lol

  • Shira Harding-James

    China’s look, I saw that a few times last night, but I liked hers the best. Anita Baker and nem was the only I wanted and checked for! ?????

  • Shira Harding-James

    Shea Butter and coconuts

  • Miss Thang

    lol he's very luscious... and still is manly with all his lusciousness. I need his skincare regimen lol

  • Miss Thang

    She has a very comforting voice. I grew up with her and her music is so nostalgic for me :)

  • It’s Real Talk! Period!!

    I tried to leave my 10 year son at the store one time! I told him to come on, he didn’t listen so I left! Santa (Xmas guy asking for donations) said didn’t you come in with an little boy! I said nope!! Lmao too! While backing up I saw this little man sprinting not running ?????in my rear view window! I stopped he crying saying you tried to leave me! I said Boy I told you to come on and when the driver is rettea (yes I spelled it right) to go you better come! Lmao

  • imright

    this show was extremely......awkward... Jamie seemed like he was winging most of the night & the crowd was stiff ?

  • Miss Thang

    I just sang that part out loud with you lol :)

  • imright

    they did a good job with Ms Bakers tribute tho????

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Yes Embarrassing Black Television.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Yes we've called it that for years and after yesterday they still have earned it.

  • Applebootay

    >Janae can flow....better than most females out here today incld. Cardi
    >H.E.R. didn't really know who she was until last night and I am impressed...Girl can sang.
    >Anita Baker --Yolanda Adams Segment ONLY---sang her face off
    > Nicki.....I like the song, I like her....I don't like her rolling on the floor puccy popping....

  • Applebootay

    I think Jamie was on something....

  • Applebootay

    Well it wasn't that big...no pain pills required...just a few kegels and you'll be good.

  • Applebootay

    I felt it in my soul.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Loved their ensemble

  • Applebootay

    Now leave Auntie outta this....she gets a pass...LOL

  • Applebootay

    Marsha Ambrosia has a very limited range...LIES...It was limited yesterday, but that girl has a range, I've seen her live. I was saying the same thing last night....like what happened?

    This isnt her first BET tribute either. They did one in 2010. So I was confused as to why again.

    Our current Queen? Who?

  • Wyteprivilege

    lol! Great point!!! But she must’ve learned her lesson when Celine Dion attempted to sing with Queen Aretha Franklin. Was like watching me trying to slam dunk next to Lebron. Epic fail.

  • Kimberly King

    Gag is that I don’t even be trying. Just popping sh*t like I normally do. Lol

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I heard just a bit of his Mo'Nique stuff. DRY AF. Dude, none of it was funny. The last time JF hosted, that I remember, was this time in 2009 when MJ died. He was a horrible host then too. Maybe his ability to do standup has left his talent pool???

  • imright

    blame it on the a a a a alcohol ?!?! ??? lol idk but it was a mess... calling Childish Gambino randomly on stage out of the audience...

  • imright

    he was only funny on the Jamie Foxx show to me

  • Kimberly King

    Ugh Janelle reminds me of Roger from Sister Sister. Pesky, annoying, and unimportant AF !

  • Coco17

    They probably was laughing at her fat azz , she was looking thristy last night.. smh

  • TamG

    She really does light up the room with her voice—no matter how big the room. That voice is a force.

  • Ni Ni

    she trying not to go into a full goat call.
    ___________
    I am hollering ???

  • Ni Ni

    Beyonce

  • Ni Ni

    lol, i missed that one.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Oh! I see.

  • Bonny

    Yes. Yes he is. Everything.

  • Wyteprivilege

    You’re a better man for that reason alone, lol

  • Bonny

    I love Jamie's voice. I love Anita Baker. Lol at that wig. I'm mad.

  • the guest

    Singer, Musician, & Actor Jamie Foxx is his proper introduction, reference, segue, and description henceforth. Jamie Foxx is a legitimate and one of the most talented vocalist of this time. Beautiful tribute to Ms. Baker.

  • the guest

    Ironically, he is actually a better singer than personality, actor, and host.

  • the guest

    And on In Living Color

  • leapyearpisces

    Girlllllllllahhhh!!! I will NEVER FORGET!!! , and that line when she says: " I got everything on my wedding ring".........I was a little girl....but I KNEW THAT SHAT MEANT SOMETHING!!!!!

  • leapyearpisces

    LOL. Ok. You can be my aunty. XOXOXO. Lets sing...believe in a mystery, how it used to be......:-). That was / is her fave.

  • leapyearpisces

    FAIRYTALES is EPIC!!!!!!!! You .never came to see me, you let me stand alone, out in the wilderness, alone in the cold....I found not magic potion, no horse with wings to fly...I found a poison apple, my destiny to die ...no royal kiss to save me....no magic spell to spend...my fantasy is OVER....my life MUST NOW BEGIN....
    CHILE...I know NITA's songs like I know my ABC's...

  • MythCalledLove

    Anita and Sade music is timeless. I loved all her music. And everyone has new faces. Chyna & Amber past expiration date. They can teach at THOR University.

  • MythCalledLove

    Oh I forgot conspiracy theorist. Can't wait the Black and white the red. 5,4,3,2

  • BingBangBoom

    Was she? I didn't watch I was working.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Anita gave a beautiful speech and homage to "live" music.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I think she's touring again. She had a period in her life going through a touch divorce. I think that's when she dropped out of the spotlight. Plus, remember, the music changed.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Sometimes Kimberly, these "stars" can't afford the "best". They've got their aunt as their makeup artist; their cousin as they stylist....you know what I mean?

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I'm sorry but I can't name one song that Janae sings.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    You realize Anita is 60 years old, maybe older? And that wig was perfect in my opinion. I can't see her with straight hair, maybe a natural. But I loved the wig.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    "They don't make stars anymore"

  • Kimberly King

    I surely do NOT. Bye

  • Cannelle

    You post is about to make me cry. I miss him.

  • Blue

    I agree.

  • Munchosgirl

    Oh someone with my same thought! Well not really just not a fan of Nicki...at all

  • Guess Who

    LMMFAO! Maybe he looked extra big down there because the rest of him so small...IDK...but it rocked back and forth so gracefully and looked heavy.

  • Ni Ni

    I noticed too. I'm waiting for the break downs. I love a good conspiracy theory ?.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    That was my falling in love album (the next was my get the f out album, ?)

  • Applebootay

    Its definitely big...you will need to stretch and maneuver on that thang....I would sho love to give it a spin....LITERALLY..

  • Applebootay

    Oh, she does covers in her shows. Shes done Jill Scott before and I was like girl BYE...it was good but she ain't no Jilly...I think she wanted to show folks she has range and she does but it isn't on the level of Jilly, Yolanda, Marsha, etc...I think they're all good in their own right.

  • Applebootay

    That was AWkward......it actually made me cringe....Like WTF is he doing...

  • Kimocha

    I Loved Yolanda Adam's tribute to Anita... Just absolute PERFECTION!
    And I have never heard of Ken and De’arra... Sorryyy!

  • Kimocha

    lmaooo!
