  1. I agree totally with this post, fam. I normally don't watch the EBT Awards (that's what I call it). This is the first time I have watched in years.

    Uncle Charlie Wilson's performance

    Kendrick Lamar's performance

    Post show interview with 2 Chainz...dude sounds a lot smarter than the nursery rhyme lyrics that he has

    Dislikes

    Chris Tucker's inability to be funny past the opening

    Nikki Minaj's acceptance speech. It was as real as a $7 bill

    Pre-show was ghetto and ratchet

    1. I peeped the level of phoniness in Minaj's acceptance speech and I could tell that others onstage felt the same by their body language as Minaj continued to fake respect it up. I liked how the audience was all into Charlie Wilson's performance and give Snoop mad props, cause I remember he was sampling Wilson long before it was the thing to do. I heard 2Chainz earned a college degree before his rap career blew.

    2. 2 Chainz had a 4.0 in college! He is a very smart man. His lyrics suck although they are so catchy. "All i want for my birthday is a big booty hoe...." way to reach out to the youth.... lol

  2. "Did Paula Patton pop a molly before going onstage?"

    More likely some cocaine and alcohol, from what I've heard.

    1. Paula was onstage acting like she was trying to push up on some black mandingo. Lol.

  3. OMG Agreed!!! R Kelley looked like Hip Hop hellraise with all those spikes. Charlie turned it OUT. I was so happy to see that Kendrick/Erykah Badu link up. Asap Rocky needs to be banned from wearing tight ass capris. 2 Chainz looked like a cross between Bootsie Collins and The Crow.

    1. Man, I couldn't believe what Asap Rocky had on. Lol. That's exactly who I'm referring to when I say grown men wearing tight pants. That fad needs to end, immediately. R Kelly jammed, but I wish he'd performed the classics from beginning to end.

  4. I did not watch the entire show, ] but was thoroughly impressed with the Uncle Charlie tribute and performances. I really wanted more from R. Kelly and Mariah. Paula Patton was messy and Nikki actually looks decent with clothes on! I did enjoy the quick reggae portion. Not too bad of a show overall. Hope you have a great 4th! :)

    1. I forgot about Mariah Carey's performance. I too agree that it would've been nice if we could've received more from Mariah. Thank you, Shelly, enjoy your 4th of July festivities as well.

  5. I didn't watch the show, but based on my Facebook and Twitter timelines I'll be looking for Charlie Wilson's tribute and Meagan Good's dress later today.

    1. It was a a pretty good show, very entertaining and I could tell the audience participation during Charlie Wilson's set was sincere. Meagan Good showed her assets in the dress, quite nicely.

  6. Love me some Sanaa Lathan, and Meagan Good's dress she almost had on. Love your whole likes list. I think Ciara is trying too hard to be a combination Janet Jackson and Aaliyah. I still like looking at her though.

    On the likes list I would add Dwyane Wade's acknowlegment of his beautiful black queen, Gabriel Union. Those words made me smile. I had to replay that part a few times. And like you, I can't wait to see the Best Man sequel as well.

    1. Sanaa Lathan does it for me, every since her role in Love And Basketball. I just adore that woman's mannerisms even more than I do the fact that she's alluring and drop dead gorgeous. Yep, Wade placed a warm smile on Gabrielle Union's face and heart. Did you see Nia Long? My Lord.

  7. Good show this year, I sat through red carpet to end credits. I tune out the Twitter commentary purposely.

    +1 on the likes & added to dislikes:

    J.Cole, Brandon & DJ Drama with the same shirt.

    BET's attempt at censoring.

    1. I agree, really good show this year. BET attempted to censor ASAP Rocky's song and it made me wonder why allow him to perform the song in the first place if you planned to bleeped 80% of the lyrics.

  8. Great lists, and I concur with both. Sanaa is GORGEOUS! She was born om the Cusp of Beauty like yours truly, though. LOL Yea, it's real (Sept 19-24). I pray I age as nicely as she, Nia, and Gabby. They make 40 look flawless. Meagan's lips are the truth, as well as that cleavage, but Badu's ass, though!

    1. Erykah Badu definitely sports some junk in her truck, and she walks like she knows it, too.

  9. Sanaa Lathan is quite beautiful and Meagan Good absolutely looked amazing in that dress.

  10. I LOVEEEE Kendrick! He's one of my fave artist out right now and he made the right choice by adding Badu to his set.

    Overall the awards were a hit but some of your dislikes I must agree with. I promise Paula smoked that owww weee before hitting the red carpet. She was on one forreal! lol

    I really think Chris Tucker tried but when I really think about it, hes always been funnier in movies than he ever was at standup. They need to let Kevin Hart host from now on or even Jamie, they are the best two host for me.

  12. I heard a about Paula P... I heard her and Robin Thicke having issues. But IDk...

    I don't watch the awards, so I will take it from you.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Paula popped molly?! That sounds about right. If her and Robin didn't have issues before, I bet they do now. That was past entertainment, she was being disrespectful. He's already white, got niggaz under their breath talking bout how "he aint hittin that right!" Another thing, I wonder if Megan knew she was presenting a gospel award when she picked that dress? It was a good show though, Charlie Wilson was the best.
