Ray Ray and the other junior thin mints of Mindless Behavior called into 106 & Porch on Monday (June 2) to apologize for their joke at the expense of Lauryn Hill‘s current tax woes while co-presenting the award for Best Female R&B Artists with Mike Epps at the BET Awards ’12.
“You sing bad — like Lauryn Hill’s tax accountant bad,” one of Bebe’s Kids quipped to Mike Epps poking fun at the comedian’s singing.
And then, crickets.
“I want to apologize about the Lauryn Hill joke. I didn’t mean no harm by it. I hope everyone can forgive me. It was like a big thing on Twitter and everything, so I truly apologize. I respect Lauryn Hill and all of them like that,” said Ray Ray the following day in the group’s phone call to the countdown show.
“All of them like that.” Chile, let me leave that one alone. Here’s my two cents: More than likely someone else — specifically an adult hired by BET to write scripts for presenters – is to blame for that tacky ass joke. But I could be wrong. You know kids are ratchet as shit these days.
Still, I’m assuming their manager gave the joke the greenlight. Too many questions, comments and concerns. All I want to know is this: are we officially hiding behind kids now? I’ve got a lot of mess that I would like to get off my chest if that’s the case.
A source tells TMZ that Beyonce, who ultimately won the award, was pissed over the comments.
Will Blue Ivy Carter make her first red carpet appearance draped in Versace like French Montana at Summer Jam at the ’12 BET Awards? I have already made my blood sacrifice to see that it happens. Now it’s your turn.
It has been confirmed by the Associated Press that both King Bey and husband Jay-Z will attend this year’s BET Awards on Sunday. Now, the follow-up question: Will Beyonce use the awards ceremony to make her first televised performance since giving birth to the Sacred Lamb of Tribeca?
Beyonce’s BET Awards Fashion Moments
Dressed in all black everything, including a pair of goggle shades that reminds us of a villain in ‘Sailor Moon’, Rihanna joined Jay-Z onstage at BBC Radio 1′s Hackney Weekend in London last night (June 23).
Entering together through a white light positioned at the center of the stage, The Goat Whisperer and Hovito kicked off his career-spanning headlining set with “Run This Town” to deafening screams.
Clearly not the best live vocalist, RiRi delivered the song’s chorus in a raw and rough billy goat grunt that enhanced the thugged out persona she’s been trying to impose on us lately. Contrived or not, her “I don’t give a fuck” demeanor definitely plays a role in why fans love her. Hell, I even stanned out when she threw up the roc.
Check out the performance below along with flicks of Rihanna leaving her London hotel earlier in the day.
You bring the frankincense and I’ll grab some myrrh. Unlike the majority of us who fall off the Tumblr bandwagon after about a month or so Beyonce
is still going strong. Mathew and Tina built ‘em Ford tough like that.
In a new photo posted this week, Blue Ivy’s mom works a fierce red pout and even fiercer “hurry up I’m hungry, shit” pose while standing in the middle of cathedral built exclusively for blood sacrifices — or at least that is what some theorist will say when this picture find its way to the fucked up side of YouTube.
You know, in some twisted way I hope Khia finds a way to take credit for this moment, too. There has got to be a connection.
Speaking with Hollywood Life, Solange gushed about having front row seats at the Pay-Per-View event that was watching her sister’s afterbirth fall out. Stay mad, I think?
