So why was Monica on stage singing that damn hard? She was doing a tribute to Willona Woods, of course.
Tidbits of behind the scene gossip from the BET Honors leaked out earlier this week. Here’s the scoop via That Bitch from Rhymes with Snitch:
The second annual BET Honors taped the other day and gossip is starting to leak out from behind the scenes. They say producers were really hot to have Keyshia Cole sing a tribute to Mary J. Blige, who was honored along with Tyler Perry and Magic Johnson, but Mary’s husband/manager nixed the idea claiming there too many comparisons between Mary and Keyshia as it is. Instead, Monica and Anita Baker sang the tribute to Mary while Keyshia was relegated to introducing choreographer Judith Jamison.
I blame the show producers and Kendu for this! K-Ci should have performed the tribute – - alone. It makes all of the sense in the world to me. More arrival flicks of Monica and Mary after the jump.
