Black Twitter imploded after Lil Nas X passionately tongue kissed a man onstage at the BET Awards.

Lil Nas X stunned BET Awards viewers on Sunday night by making out with one of his male dancers after performing "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)".

The openly homosexual rapper closed out his set at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles by playing tonsil hockey with his dancer as the audience cheered.

Not everyone was supportive of Nas X's celebration of Pride Month. Many on social media say Nas X was inappropriate in front of minors viewing at home.

One Twitter user wrote: "Black ppl wouldn't have supported Old Town Road if we knew it was gonna turn into this."

Another user wrote: "It's good that these folks are standing up to this foolishness."

Another user tweeted: "I agree Hundred points symbol percent. You don't have to throw away all your moral compass for 'love is love' ... protecting children is a must r regardless of your lifestyle. I'm glad they are speaking out. It just shows how they expect everyone to go along with the garbage public behavior."

Even members of the LGBT+ community ripped Nas X for the kiss on national television.

The 22-year-old Georgia native clapped back at his critics, saying, "Y'all really like to pretend homosexuality didn't exist in African culture."

Nas X is best known for a remix to his country-trap single, "Old Town Road," featuring country music singer Billy Ray Cyrus, 59.

Megan Thee Stallion (pictured) and mom-to-be Cardi B were among the big winners at the 2021 BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

Megan was joined on the red carpet by her significant other, rap producer Pardison "Pardi" Fontaine.

But Cardi grabbed the spotlight by revealing she was expecting her second child during a surprise set with her husband Offset's group Migos.

It was also a big night for singer Jazmine Sullivan, right, who took home the Album of the Year prize for "Heaux Tales." Jazmine posed with rapper Coi LeRay before the show.

Singer H.E.R. was named Best Female R&B/Pop Artist, and Bruno Mars, took home two awards for Video Director and Best Group for his magical collaboration with Anderson .Paak, Silk Sonic.

The awards show, hosted by Taraji P. Henson (pictured), featured a record 18 show-stopping performances from the likes of Sullivan, Lil Baby, H.E.R., DJ Khaled, and Lil Nas X, as well as tributes to Lifetime Achievement recipient Queen Latifah and the late DMX.

Queen Latifah was overcome with emotion as she collected her latest honor and accolade.

Holding back tears, the rap pioneer and actress took the stage after Lil' Kim, Rapsody, MC Lyte and Monie Love delivered a stirring tribute, and had to compose herself before accepting the honor (see video blow).

"I'm so extremely moved I don't even know what to... I want to thank BET for creating an outlet for beautiful blackness to thrive, to shine. When we couldn't get played on the radio and other places, we couldn't get our videos played in other places, there was BET that allowed us to be in our fullness."

Amy Sussman/FilmMagic

Latifah, a closeted lesbian, also thanked God, her father, Lancelot Owens, Sr., who joined her onstage, and her late mother, stating, "I've always celebrated the woman because I was raised by a strong Black woman, and raised by a father who loves women."

Megan Thee Stallion used the iHeart Radio Music Awards on Thursday night, May 27, to make her red carpet debut with boyfriend Pardison Fontaine.

The "Cry Baby" rapper looked stunning in a sparkly gold dress as she posed on the red carpet with her beau, who dressed casually in a khaki outfit.

It was the first time Megan and rapper Pardison have attended a public event together, but the 26-year-old revealed in February she was coupled up with her "boo"

"I don't be liking some of the stuff on the internet. People don't know what the hell they talking about, they just be saying anything. I didn't like what they was trying to say about Pardi 'cause he is so calm and so sweet."

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images

"That's my boo, and I really like him," she added of the 31-year-old "Backin' It Up" songwriter.

Megan took home the best collaboration award for her track "Savage" with Beyonce.

The curvaceous rapper was quick to thank her fans - nicknamed the "hotties" - as she gushed:

"I really want to thank the hotties because without y'all I would be nothing. I want to thank my grandma for believing in me also. Everything I do I do for my family, for the hotties and for myself."

Drake's son Adonis threw a fit during his father's acceptance speech as the prestigious Artist of the Decade at Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.

What should have been a momentous occasion to mark Drake's achievement was turned into a meme frenzy on Black Twitter as the toddler disrupted his speech.

Drake brought his 3-year-son onstage and handed the boy his achievement award: "You wanna hold it?"

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images[/caption

The 3-year-old wore a red plaid shirt, black pants white Air Jordan sneakers and his hair braided in neat cornrows.

"The truth is, I'm really bad at taking compliments," the 34-year-old rapper said in his acceptance remarks as Adonis stood quietly beside him.

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images[/caption

"I'm really self-conscious about my music, and even if I do a good job I always wonder how I coulda done it better. I rarely celebrate anything, and um, just for anyone watching this that's wondering how this happened, you know that's really the answer. It's being so unsure how you're getting done that you just kinda keep going in the hopes of figuring out the formula. Feeling so lucky and blessed that the fear of losing it keeps you up at night..."

After thanking his friends, collaborators and fans, he picked up Adonis, and the boy broke down in tears.

The toddler is typical of privileged children whose fathers spend more money on them than time spent with them.
 

The news of Adonis' birth first broke when rapper Pu$ha T released a diss track -- prompting Drake to confirm the rumor on his album Scorpion.

    "I wasn't hiding my kid from the world / I was hiding the world from my kid," he rapped on a track titled "Emotionless." He continued, "From empty souls who just wake up and look to debate / Until you're starin' at your seed, you could never relate."

Meanwhile, The Weeknd was the big winner of the night, hauling home a total of 10 trophies.

The singer picked up seven awards before the live portion of the show even began. He won in the categories Top Male Artist, Top R&B Artist, and Top R&B Album for After Hours. He also added three more during the live telecast - including Top Artist.

Late rapper Pop Smoke, who was killed in February, 2020, won five awards, earning Top New Artist, Top Rap Artist, and Top Rap Album for his posthumously-released debut, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon.

British actor Daniel Kaluuya won the best supporting actor Oscar for his role in biographical drama "Judas and the Black Messiah."

Like any good son, he thanked his parents in his acceptance speech: "You got to celebrate life, man! We're breathing, walking, it's incredible. It's incredible. Like, it's incredible. My mom met dad, they had sex. It's amazing."

Megan Thee Stallion picked up three Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday night. She appeared stunned and choked back tears when she realized she'd won the Best New Artist award, making her the first female rapper to win the award in 22 years after Lauren Hill took home the honor in 1999.

The 26-year-old rapper won Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song award with her "Savage" collaborator Beyonce.

Megan thanked her competition, including singer Doja Cat, pictured right, in her acceptance speech.

"First of all, I wanna say, everybody is amazing. Every artist that was nominated for this award is so amazing." She also thanked God, her team, and her late mother.

The Houston rapper also won for the Best Rap Song trophy with her idol, Beyonce. They held hands as the two superstars took to the stage outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The rapper giggled through her acceptance speech after the "Crazy In Love" singer initially left her speechless. "If you know me, you have to know that ever since I was little I was like, 'You know what, one day when I grow up I'm gonna be, like, the rap Beyonce'. That was definitely my goal," she said.

"I remember I went to the (Houston) Rodeo for the first time and I saw Destiny's Child perform and I was like..., 'I love her work ethic, I love the way she is, I love the way she carried herself', and my mama will always be like, 'Megan, what would Beyonce do...?'"

Kevin Winter/Getty Images

Holding back tears, she also thanked Beyonce's husband, Jay Z, for "putting me on Roc Nation", and she added, "My life has changed."

Beyonce also shared the love, telling Megan, "I have so much respect for you and I'm honored that you asked me to be part of this song."

Megan and her "WAP" collaborator Cardi B performed their controversial hit live onstage. Their raunchy performance lit up the CBS Twitter page with complaints.

ABC censors were said to be "freaking out" over risqué performances by Jennifer Lopez (left) and Megan Thee Stallion at the 2020 American Music Awards on Sunday night.
 

Kevin Mazur/AMA2020/Getty Images for dcp

According to Page Six, a source said Lopez, 51, whose sexy Super Bowl halftime performance triggered over 1,300 complaints about her "strip club act," was set to outdo herself in a "steamy" duet with Colombian singer Maluma.

But Lopez's AMA performance was tame by stripper industry standards.
 

Kevin Mazur/AMA2020/Getty Images for dcp

Censors were also nervous about the impossibly scanty costume to be worn by Billboard magazine's Rapper of the Year, Megan Thee Stallion. But that turned out to be a false alarm as well. The black lacy negligee Megan wore during her sultry set was nothing television viewers haven't seen before.

This year's AMAs, hosted by Taraji P. Henson, was broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The funniest moment of the night was when Henson shook her butt at a life-size cutout of semi-retired pop singer Beyonce's face.

The most scandalous attires of the evening were pop singer Ciara Wilson and male-to-female trans actor Laverne Cox flashing a little leg.

Ciara was the first presenter at the American Music Awards. She rocked a flowing red dress with a plunging neckline and black, thigh-high hooker boots. She presented the award for Favorite Male Artist - Soul/R&B to The Weeknd, who wore stage makeup and bandages to promote a movie role.

Ciara's hair was done up in extension braids so tight that it looked like her scalp was screaming to be set free. The wife of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson completed her look with a pair of silver hoop earrings and several rings.
