BET Awards Page 1
The 2013 BET Awards seems to be about the duets. First, the show was opened by a surprise pairing of America’s most hated hip-pop star, Chris Brown, plus bubblegum-splosion Nikki Minaj. Kendrick Lamar — who has already taken home the Best New Artist award — was joined on stage by the queen of psychotic hip hop, Ms. Erykah Badu herself. El Debarge seems like he might be on a hot date with some narcotics, but it’s the sartorial mashups that caught our eyes.
The red carpet at last night’s BET Awards in Los Angeles was like a runway of sorts. Ladies wore every style imaginable — from mini dresses to harem pants to couture confections. Some were obviously better dressed than others, but which lady looked best?
Scorned star Kanye West may have made a comeback performance during Sunday’s BET Awards, but the post-show buzz focused mainly on Kanye’s gigantic and Egyptian-inspired adornments. Well, in the last 24 hours, detailed information on the jewels — which honestly looked as if they were personally thieved from the Pyramid tombs themselves — surfaced, including up-close angle shots and a six-figure price tag.
We know how difficult a red carpet can be, especially when part of the task is to pay tribute to a huge, yet decidedly controversial fashion icon: Michael Jackson. But trying to find a best dressed at this particular awards show was like finding a size 8 Louboutin at a sample sale: impossible.
