Cardi B led the winners at the 2019 BET Awards on Sunday, taking home two trophies including the prestigious Album of the Year award.

The 26-year-old rapper won the top honor for her debut album, Invasion of Privacy. She was presented the award by Anderson .Paak, who kneeled before as if she was royalty. Cardi couldn't contain her excitement as she thanked the audience at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

"Thank you so much everybody," she said before sharing her concerns that she may be overrated.

"As a female artist I always feel like, damn, sometimes I feel like I'm doing too much, and sometimes I feel like I'm not doing too much. You know what I'm saying? It's like you're never motherf**king perfect to these people, but, the numbers don't lie. Three times platinum and I want to thank everybody who participated on the album... I'm glad I made an album that your sister, your mother, your grandmother like it."

Cardi, who also took home the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist prize, opened the awards show with an energetic performance of her tracks "Press" and "Clout".

Wearing a barely-there green outfit, the mother-of-one also delighted her husband, Migos star Offset, with a sexy lap dance.

Cardi was actually nominated for seven awards, but she lost out on categories such as Collaboration of the Year - which went to Travis Scott and Drake for Sicko Mode - and Video of the Year, which was won by Childish Gambino for This Is America.

Cardi and Offset posed for photos with director and playwright Tyler Perry, left, and actress La La Anthony, right, during the show at Microsoft Theater.

The BET Awards also paid a fitting tribute to late rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was shot to death outside his clothing store on March 31. Nipsey was named Best Male Hip Hop Artist and he also won the Humanitarian Award, which was presented to his family by rapper T.I. Harris.

Nipsey's fiancee, actress Lauren London, and his mother, Angelique Smith, accepted the trophy on his behalf, while other members of his family looked on, including his sister, Samantha Smith (holding Nipsey's son Kross), daughter, Emani Asghedom, father Dawit Asghedom, and Lauren's son, Cameron.

"I just want to thank you guys for all the love and support, and the marathon continues again," an emotional Lauren told the crowd.

    Whoo. I'm glad I ain't watch this mess. It's like the Barnum and Bailey of Hip Hop now.

  • tia

    Cardi and her hubby's performance was cool. Offset can dance too.

    But that Mary performance tho? That was EPIC!!

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Did yall see when they opened the show...those green Lucky the Leprechaun ass shoes she had on? I guess she cant dance in high heels anymore since her legs and foots be all swollen due to her recent ass surg.

    Congrats tho Belcalis

    ??? I mean very low.
    But when you the big machine behind you.

  • Vonn

    Nipsey's mom rambled on a bit and was doing too much when Nipsey's dad started to speak.

  • 100milesperhour

    Cardi’s wig smooshed her ears down & the ponytail was too short & bulky. She looked overall dumb. Angela Simmons looks old beyond her years with those teef & her weight. Mary always looks gaudy & cheap. She should refine her look.

  • SummerBaby

    No mention of Mary’s performance?! Kross & Emani appear to be very tall.

  • Vonn

    Congrats to Mary J Blige!!

  • Vonda K

    God bless Nipsey’s family. Nipsey loved his grandma?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Mary was EVERYTHING! When Method man AND Kim came out??? Chill bumps!! https://media3.giphy.com/media/l2Sq25IpRdArf6iAw/giphy.gif

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I wasn't surprised that the Latin appropriator won big. Her and Ella MAi are the most bitter winners...it's crazy. Like bish you won, focus on the positive. Damn!

    Soooo I get second hand embarrassment really bad. I couldn't make it through Nipsey's mother's speech. And from the comments I saw online, it went exactly the way I imagined it would. It was nice hearing about all the positive stuff Nip did though.

  • iWasteTime

    I've watched Mary J performance 4 times!!

    As I type, my YOUTUBE video is going on in the background. Mary f**ked it up last night. I fell in love with her all over again!! She did the damn thing! Ass cheeks and all!! Her body is the truth..LAWD!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Tyler Perry looking like Offset sugerdaddy

  • iWasteTime

    I screamed at Ella. If she don't sat down somewhere.
    I didn't see Ne-Yo, Ursher, Alicia, Beyonce, Drake etc etc asking her to stop singing their shat!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Mary J deserves her own post.

    I've never been to one of her concerts. Is this what goes down? If so, I need some tickets ASAP. That was a great performance.

    My baby Method did his thang!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Haven’t watched it in years but all this hype over MJB performance got me all interested ?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Shole did!!! She deserved that award!

  • tia

    God yes she did!!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Tyler Perry’s speech was DEEP too!

  • Kanyade

    Me too. 'Bout to go find the performance and watch it.
    UPDATED: Oh my. Love Mary. All hail the queen, indeed!

  • 100milesperhour

    Cardi’s insecure. She knows she’s an imposter but she’s mad everyone doesn’t buy into her circus act.

  • Dasright

    You get second hand embarrassment too?! I turned her speech off . What were the comments saying?

  • CookieMobster

    What in the guacamole HELL is she wearing???

  • Ghetto Real Name

    I was gonna skip Mary and Nas upcoming tour. Have seen her many MANY times and its outside and I dont do outside well. But now we going lol. July 25th. Gotta cop by mid week bc after that Im sure a lot of folks changed their mind.

  • Carrington

    I thought this was Nicki Jean Minaj.

  • CookieMobster

    Second hand embarrassed! Me too! I get it soooooo bad. I've never heard it called that, and I will be stealing it.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    It was a mix. A lot of people were saying she was talking out of her azz and her speech was everywhere/didn't make sense. Apparently she said something about people with big breasts toppling over. Then, there were those with amethyst crystals burned in their forehead talking about people don't understand the spiritual world, "Chakra, chakra, third eye" blah blah blah.

  • Keyshia Ray

    Very true

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Girl (or boy no offense), it's like I get all the embarrassment that they should feel x2.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Mary(whom I finally met at a SAG screening) I will NEVER have NOTHING bad to say about her. Well deserved tribute and outstanding performance.

  • Kanyade

    I love seeing the audience sing along to Mary's catalog.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Her ass is very very aggravating

  • Yardgirl

    OMG I never knew what to call it (I am getting goosebumps right now LOL) Yasss, I usually end up with the covers over my head in embarrassment (always watching in bed!!) for the person, like stawp please just stawp!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I really didn't think the Jacquees nonsense was bigger than the shaderoom but I guess I was wrong. The way she marched off that stage, you would think she could actually sing live.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Chile... I'm not even going to go in like I want to, but I was really staring at the tv like "Girl, sit down."

  • Alextra Ballard

    TP looks good

  • xxxgracious

    I can relate the nipsey's mom. She has got to be a pisces cause I'm in to amethyst and chakras. She's loopy but means well.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. I was being stereotypical. I just put a bunch of words together.

    I know she means well, but I could just tell...

  • Phillybruh

    Mary, Lizzo and H.E.R in that order.

  • Dasright

    That's why I stopped watching her speech. She started going way left and I felt my embarrassment meter going up. She's obviously still struggling with his death, naturally so, and needs to sit down and heal.

  • Gloria

    Ok I missed out. Didnt watch it. What did Ella Mai do?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Agreed. I completely understand grief. Still in the process myself. Wish her well, but I couldn't sit through her speech.

  • iWasteTime

    When we all sang I'm Going Down!!
    I got chills!

  • Phillybruh

    Same thing, looked on Ticketmaster while she was still performing...lol

  • Queen Bee

    Loved it too!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    At the end of her speech she said something like, "This is what happens when you let the music speak for itself". Then she stormed off the stage like she just dropped a bomb. Idk. The funny thing was that people were saying she only won because people thought they were voting for Jacquees version of the song. Rofl.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Cardi circus act: CIRCUS ACT it is.. what mothers she referring to that likes her"music"? Oh I know HOODRATS Inc. AND DERELICTS who hope there attempts to strip and phux/suck their way to "stardum" works vs education and professions with positive influences... FOH .. I DIDN'T WATCH but the blogs and comments will keep me posted!

  • Ghetto Real Name

    That was the best part. It made me feel so good and warm. I will always be a 14/15 yo girl when "You Remind Me" comes on. My ass was in there singing along too. LOUDLY. Bf and 14 yo was like REALLY?

  • Phillybruh

    She kinda has a point though. I wasn't mad at Ella

  • Dasright

    Sending healing your way!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    I thought Cardi had Dr Orders to chill?? TF???

  • CookieMobster

    It's girl and YESSS I feel you!! When we watch tv sometimes its almost unbearable. I tell my husband I need a valium if we are gonna keep watching this.

  • EasyBreezy

    They were dancing in the aisles! I loved it!

  • tintin

    YEH I just watched it. Wooo. that was nice.
    I was here in my office singing and dancing. My coworkers ended up joining in with our over 30 year old asses.

  • SayWhatNow?

    Mary was serving legs last night baby! I was so proud of her!

  • EasyBreezy

    Where was his baby momma? Please don't say its none of my business; I'm nosey....... lol

  • Blaque Mahogany

    what mothers she referring to that likes her"music"? Oh I know HOODRATS Inc. AND DERELICTS
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Not going to lie. I had the same response. I was thinking whose grandmother would listen to that? Better yet, who would even play that around their grandmother. To each their own though.

  • xxxgracious

    I know I know lol. Bless her heart.

  • Marlika

    BET IS PURE GARBAGE!!!

    But can we talk about how fine Method gets every years!!.??? Him, Nas and Larenz Tate forever look youthful.???

  • EasyBreezy

    Excuse you? That's my baby.

  • EasyBreezy

    Chastain?

  • tintin

    Cardi deserves all that she is getting. The woman worked very hard this year and I must admit she is a great performer. Her album was a fun album and she definitely is the most talked about right now.

    Nipsey got that award but sad to say he most likely only won because he died. They only recognize talent when you're dead.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I don't even know if I was 10 when that song came out and I still felt it then. Naturally, it has a different meaning now that I'm older. Dang, I miss music that makes you feel.

  • Ghetto Real Name

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Thanks!

  • EasyBreezy

    I saw Nip's mom differently. She is clearly quite spiritual and was telling us how she KNEW Nip was about to depart this side. Powerful....

  • Blaque Mahogany
  • EasyBreezy
  • Ni Ni

    HOODRATS Inc. AND DERELICTS ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Does anyone know what she looks like? Hell, she could have been right there and I wouldn't have known.

  • EasyBreezy

    I've seen her; ONCE. She was not there.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I have nutn tew add tew wut Diddy said: HailToTheQueen...enuff said

  • Ni Ni

    What he say?

  • Alextra Ballard

    I don’t believe nobidy was seated

  • EasyBreezy

    Okay, back to Mary.... her concerts are the bomb. She is emotional like Tasia, a dancer like MJ, but in the MJB way, spiritual like Kirk Franklin, and real like Cardi B.

  • Alextra Ballard

    LOL

  • Phillybruh

    Mayor Pete ain't my boy....lol My money is on and has always been on Warren! Pete got the same problem Beto and Sanders has with the black community.

  • EasyBreezy

    I'd change two things re: the Queen Mary's performance: 1) turn up the microphone, and 2) leave Method Man on stage during the entire performance.

  • EasyBreezy

    Since no one is going to bring it up, I will. What do you think Ken-don't (Kendu) was doing last night? #allHailQueenMary

  • Phillybruh

    Fuming, I imagine like Janets ex when she went back on tour after him...lol

  • Marlika

    Omg I remember when I met his fine aaa 2 years ago.?? He’s polite and respectful. His wife is beautiful and was nice as well. Most chicks get an attitude when you say hi to their man, celeb or not.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I had no intentions on listening to MJB tidday,until I saw her amazing performance. Now I am listening to hear playlist

  • tia

  • Wreckognize Game

  • oshh16

    I only watched MJB's performance this morning, to see her and Meth.
    May catch the re-air this evening

  • TamG

    So glad others liked Mary J’s performance as much as I did. It just kept going and going and I still didn’t want it to end. She has SOOO many hits, and it was fun guessing which song she’d do next.

    That said, I was taken aback at the language in the show. The host cursed a lot and the artists did as well. I wasn’t aware the s word allowed on broadcast tv and the b word was used in every other sentence in some performances like Cardi and the Lizzo person (sorry, not familiar with her). The language was vulgar and inappropriate for a general audience which includes children. Made me appreciate Mary’s performance even more. I don’t know what’s going on with Black culture, why it seems to be getting more and more gutter, but I just can’t relate. I just don’t need to hear the b word in every other sentence to be entertained.

  • wonderwoman

    Mary J best performance of the night. She could of stayed on stage all night.

  • Wreckognize Game

    The same thing Wendy’s husband does when he sees her hanging out and getting love.

  • oshh16

    He is very cool, kind and respectful. Met him a few times over the years.

  • Tiffani Zumba

    Mary J Blige slayed that whole performance! I've been blessed to see her in concert several times! She is the truth! Method Man is looking like a whole snack???

  • Ms. Cree

    Method man is like a fine wine!!! SHEESH!! Between him and that Nas.....

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Oh I have always enjoyed her. This will be time 5. She always pretty much adds my city and I saw her one time in Richmond.

  • Sassie

    Yes....Nip was NEVER talked about musically, and his music wasn't even well known outside of Slauson and he never even CAME to these award shows...now all of a sudden he's winning awards. Do better, BET. I see u.

  • datjerk

    I give her another year before she fades into obscurity

  • The Chosen One

    It's not like it used to be coming up back in the day. You had the real artists and music such as Prince, Michael Jackson, etc.

  • Ni Ni

    The language was vulgar and inappropriate for a general audience which includes children.
    _________________
    Nobody cares about that anymore. It's the new times; we have to get used to it. They said the kids gone hear it anyway, so what the freak. I was watching that Carl Webber show on BET and was so surprised at the cursing used. BET done got rid of Bobby Jones and the other religious shows and let loose, smh.

  • datjerk

    Who?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I agree! ??????????????

  • Pitty Patty

    I'm so glad BET gave Mary her flowers while she is still alive. Mary J has raised several generations. Her style and rawness MADE the 90's... She's overcome so much shyt yet she is still standing tall and relevant. I saw people online talking about her vocals. Mary aint never been a "sanger" but her energy and edge make up for it. Last night she had the entire audience on their feet. Its very hard to impress celebrities like that. She took everybody back to the stoop, the street, the club, the basketball /and or football game, the mall, hell I could on and on. That performance was EVERYTHING. She needs a Vegas residency ASAP.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Puffy wanted to be on stage with Mary J so bad... LMBO!!!!

    Mary remind you of that Auntie that used to be ghetto, fight in 2.2 seconds, drank you under the table, talk loud shhhh, but then her glow up happened. You know ol' Aunie will still get with it if she need too but she to grown and classy now. I love her for that.

    I have zero interest in HipHop for a minute now. Not interested in this garbage that is being peddled to the masses. There is no message there is not talent, just the lowest common denominator of of society, going on about nothing. I listen to African music now, a lot of really great music coming out of Nigeria. Cardi B is classless low life with mediocre talent, just goes to show how bad the music industry is right that she is so awarded and regaled.

  • Karen Brady

    'Suge' IS MY JAM so I loved DaBaby's performance. Had to get up out my bed to shake my azz to Mary's EXCELLENT performance. She even learned how to dance better and METH .. oh God METH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yummy Yummy :-). Did anyone else's breath catch when Nip's mother took the mic? I was so nervous and for good reason. Poor thing. They knew better than to cut her off though. A white network would have. GO EXONERATED 5!!!!! Regina was adorable as always and funny!!!! Decent show and Rihanna was PERFECTION!!

    Your roving reporter Nancy "None of Your Damned Business" was not invited to the BET Awards so I had to watch and report from da damned parking lot. Shout out to Rare Essense, EU and Suga Bear OOOOOWWWW!!!

    Morris Chestnut took us waaay back with that burgundy 1989 zoot suit.

    Inquiring minds want to know if Kirk "Skippy" Franklin has come out of the closet yet. Skippy is so short he looks like he only reaches the hub-caps of a '76 Deuce and a Quarter.

    Shout out to Fantasia for not screaming her way through the song.

    A Bug's Life called and wanted to know how da hell LaLa high ass was able to hop on da stage.

    I close with Sardines and Pork n Beans. This is Nancy "None of Your Damned Business" reporting from the garage across da screet from da the Staples Center cuz they made me move from da parking lot because I was "doing da butt" a little too much.

    True. I didn't have the urge to watch it. Everything is strategically done (awards given, nominations,et al). If I want to watch something where the "winners" are chosen for us or paid for prematurely, I'll just watch next years elections.

  • laidbackgal4real

    She can barely speak English let alone rap smh ... she needs English classes ASAP

  • Kimberly King

    Cardi looks horrendous in that green ! Wtf is that ?! However, I love that blue and yellow ombré dress she's wearing. Everybody looked terrible as usual according to the pics I've seen on Twitter.

    I didn't watch the BET awards this year. I decided to catch up on sleep instead. I heard everyone was mad about Nip's mother's speech. She's not the only one who doesn't believe in the religion that was forced down our ancestors throats during slavery. Let people believe what they want to believe in.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Cardi is an unattractive chica and mad annoying

    Bless the youngins....someone should've told Yara Shahidi that as good as Beyonce's performance was at Coachella, she did not invent including marching bands in performances. Yara presented the first award after the opening and heaped all praise on beyonce'. Go-Go and marching band performances have been a DC staple and around long before her and Beyonce'.

    Was I the only one confused and uncomfortable with what Nipsey’s mom was talking about? I thought maybe I didn’t understand because I don’t attend church on a regular. I felt so embarrassed for her. Then she was trying to fix the mic for his dad and was grabbing his face. He was annoyed and told her to “go over there and do what you doing.” She seems to be controlling and thinks she knows everything.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Kamala is married to an older white man which is why she isn't connecting with AA women.
    Plus she's a former prosecutor and many AA women see her as the enemy of their sons so yeah she's has two strikes against her.

    I just watched Nipsey’s moms speech. She seems like one of those stuck on herself mothers who are selfish and crazy as a fox. But that’s my perception after that crazy speech that left the audience speechless and perplexed. I don’t know why they let her talk.

  • Malificent

    Cardi or Nipseys momma because it could be any or both.

  • Malificent

    There was no God in that speech. You wouldn’t of heard that if you went to church.

    What an odd couple. He seems so foreign and reasonable I have to wander if he hooked up with her to get his papers. He seem smart to run from a woman that talked the way she did.

  • Malificent

    She embarrassed herself too

  • Malificent

    She’s grieving I think and can’t process it but she’s trying. She’s probably never lost something that meant so much to her and it has sent her off the deep end trying to deal with it. https://media3.giphy.com/media/3rgXBQnNUaeyJQeiJy/giphy.gif

    Give them a show. Life after Nipsey.

  • ValJ1975

    His mom is a beautiful spirit. I think what it is, is that she's so spiritual that her testimonies are all over the place. Her intentions are to honor her son and when she gets into telling her testimony about how she's handling her grief her message gets lost. For instance, like when she went into talking about the woman with huge breast grieving about her son's murder. That story had no point. She went in a little too hard on a woman who was upset about Nip and for her to be a woman, a mother who just lost her son but claims to have so much peace go in like that on a fan that clearly loved or highly respected Nip was a bit much. Why couldn't she uplift that woman the same way she had just uplifted his friend who was at the crime scene too? But to put so much emphasis on the woman's breast was so unnecessary. It wasn't funny at all. It was body shaming because she made a joke about that woman's breast. I didn't know that a Queen Mother would think that was dignified or okay to say. I get that shes trying convince everyone about the peace within that she has but her stories are a little mind boggling and not very poignant. Chiiile! I bet she can pluck a nerve too! Lol
