2022 BET Awards: Full List Of Winners

Published

on

The BET Awards were back and bigger than ever.

Taraji P. Henson returned as host, reprising her gig from last year, to lead the celebration of talent across music, television, film, and sports at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Sunday night.

Doja Cat led the pack with six nominations including album of the year, video of the year, and both Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and Best Female Hip Hop artist.

The human turned living frequency formerly/currently/potentially known as Sean “Diddy” Combs was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award with a starry lineup of friends paying tribute to the producer/artist, including Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Nas, Lil’ Kim, Busta Rhymes, the Lox, Bryson Tiller, and Faith Evans.

Lizzo opened the show, flute in hand, dressed as a glamorous disco ball to perform her single “About Damn Time.” Janelle Monáe then graced the stage, giving a special shout-out to “all the gays in the house” and giving a “f— you” to the Supreme Court, before presenting the first award for the night, Best Female R&B/Pop Artist to Jazmine Sullivan.

R&B queen Brandy made a surprise appearance, lending Jack Harlow a hand and — channeling her Queens emcee character — a few bars for his performance of “First Class.” Lil Wayne had previously snuck out to duet with Harlow. Speaking of surprises, Ye (né Kanye West) came out covered from head to toe, breathing heavily through a mask as he helped Babyface present Diddy the Lifetime Achievement Award.

“I was signed to Puff without him even knowing,” Ye said of his formative years, joking, “that statement is not legally binding.” Ye, feeling schticky, also joked that Diddy has inspired both his “life” and his “wife” choices.

“And here we are,” he said. “Thanks for that Puff.”

Drake, Lil Wayne, & Nicki Minaj Reunite At Young Money Concert

Published

on

YMCMB forever.

Five days after it was delayed due to Drake catching COVID, the long-awaited Young Money reunion went down on Saturday at Budweiser Stage in Toronto. The concert, which was part of Drake’s OVO Fest, was a celebration of the Young Money era that ruled hip-hop through the late 2000s and early 2010s.

Things got off to a slow start. An hour-and-a-half after the show was supposed to start, a message appeared on screen: “Unfortunately, Lil Wayne had issues at the border.”

It was followed by another message: “Luckily, Drake runs the border.”

Fans erupted with cheers as Weezy emerged to 2010’s “Blunt Blowin” before launching into hits including “Mrs. Officer,” “Rich as F***,” and “Loyal.”

“People at the border, I love you,” Wayne said before capping off his 30-minute set with “A Milli.”

Young Money’s First Lady, Nicki Minaj, was up next. Rocking long pink hair and holding a green Louis Vuitton purse, the rap queen ran through hits like “Beez in the Trap,” “Chun-Li,” and “Super Bass.”

Drizzy then delivered his solo set, including tracks off his latest album, Honestly, Nevermind, closing with “Sticky,” “Way 2 Sexy,” and “Knife Talk.”

Following a mini-set from Big Tymers (Birdman and Mannie Fresh), the Young Money trio united on stage for a 30-minute trip down memory lane that included “BedRock,” “Up All Night,” “The Motto,” and “Moment 4 Life.”

At one point, Nicki grabbed Drake’s hand before jokingly asking, “Do you still have COVID?”

Drake paid tribute to his Young Money sister, crowning her and Wayne the “greatest rappers of all time.” “Are these bitches serious? Nobody can f**k with Nicki. It’s like the originator. It starts here, ends here,” he said.

He also showed love to the man who discovered him, Wayne. “I love you. I would go to the end of the earth for this man. You changed my fu**in’ life and you changed this city forever,” he said. “So make some fu**in’ noise for the greatest rapper of all time.”

Before leaving the stage, Wayne made a bombshell announcement. “I’m working on Carter VI, coming soon!” he said before dropping the mic.

Willow Smith stops show after a fan fainted in the crowd

Published

on

Willow Smith’s performance was cut short after someone in the audience fainted.

The 21-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith has been opening for Machine Gun Kelly and noticed a fan fainting during her performance on Tuesday at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.

She abruptly paused her performance, and a video posted online shows the star speaking to the audience, offering words of encouragement to the injured fan before wishing them a speedy recovery.

A video of the incident shows the singer on stage, seemingly unaware of what was going on in the audience.

As her band tones down a song mid-set, a fan is heard shouting: “We love you,” to which Willow responded: “Love you guys, man. Trying to make sure y’all good.”

Her reply was met with applause as the grateful crowd showed their appreciation for her swift actions.

Continuing to address her audience, Willow stated: “One of the most beautiful things about being human is you get to take care of other humans, you know? That’s one of the most beautiful things about being human.”

She added: “I really hope she’s gonna be okay, man.” Reports suggest the spectator left the gig on a stretcher after the medical incident before the artist continued with her performance when the fan had been safely seen to.
