The 2009 BET Hip-Hop Awards has come and gone and Atlanta is still surprisingly intact. The awards show went off without a hitch and new host Mike Epps kept the crowd rolling. I was prepared to do a full recap for you guys, but honestly compared to the two previous years the event was a bit lackluster.? No convicted felons were caught attempting to purchase weapons (2007), there were no last minute changes to the host (2008)…absolutely NOTHING!? The only “drama” that surrounded the event was Frankie crying on the red carpet, Gucci Mane’s “Sobriety” PSA which ran immediately after his performance of WASTED and Missy Elliott puttin Diddy on front street for still owing her cash. Everything else was status quo but you can check out all the photos HERE.
Shouts out to BET’s Lyntina Townsand for being so gracious and helpful. Awards show coverage is always exciting (and stressful) but this year the show went on without a hitch.? Great for BET but sux for us bloggers. Oh well…hopefully the Soul Train Awards will be a hot mess so we can have more to talk about.
Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and Antonia “Toya” Carter hit the red carpet of the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards with a third wheel, Toya’s new boo, James Hardy. The cute threesome posed for photos and James happily escorted both beautiful women on to the show.? Now we’ve all heard rumors of how Tiny gets down, but I’m quite sure she’s not partaking in any of those activities while her boo is unable to participate. Tip ain’t havin that… not until he gets home!
Yeah Tiny, wise move to back up a bit. You wouldn’t want to be photographed standing too close! (I kiddd!) Speaking of Tiny, she read an acceptance letter from her boo, T.I. during the awards show and he showed her much love. After the reading though, awards show host Mike Epps joked, “She betta get home for T.I. come!”? I almost fell out my chair… 😆
Pretty Ricky hit up the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards red carpet in matching black sequined jackets. They made the rounds and gave their same lil customary group speech but surprised me with an impromtu verse from “Tipsy”. Lingerie, the newest member of the group (and lead singer in lieu of Pleasure P) spit of verse acapella and blew me away.? Check out the video below:
You know it’s party time if Diddy’s in town! The Bad Boy was spotted poppin bottles with Young Jeezy last night at The Compound for one of the million parties surrounding the 2009 BET Hip Hop Awards which film in Atlanta this weekend. CTE, Bad Boy and AG Entertainment all on one bill? You already know it was off the chain. A few spotted at the compound were Young Buck, Lil Boosie, Slim Thug, Devyne Stephens, Kenny Burns and BET’s Stephen Hill. I’m gonna go out on a limb and assume there were females there too….
Trey Songz was a featured performer during Clark Atlanta University’s 2009 Homecoming festivities and I heard he gave the ladies (and a few delighted fellas) quite a show! ?FreddyO caught the moments on film but of course I got the video for you guys as well. Trey starts out fully clothed but ends up bare chested doing tricks with his tongue.
There’s nothing better than a man who can work his tongue.
It’s official, Nivea is about to P.O.P.!! The pop diva aka Lil Wayne’s Baby Mama # 5 (or is it 6?) was treated to a swanky baby shower at Villa Christina yesterday (Sunday, October 4th). Surrounded by friends and family, Nivea was a vision in yellow as she was showered with gifts for her new baby, which should be arriving any day now. According to Kodak Boi, Nivea was showered with gifts as guests participated in the usual goofy shower games.
During the shower, Niv’s guests added some creativity to the baby shower by playing unique games. Guest had to unscramble & write down as many baby products as they could name (bottle, blanket, pacifier, etc) within 5 minutes. Musical bottle was the most entertaining, where each participant took a bottle filled with juice, while Nieva’s records were playing in the back, & who ever ended up with bottle once the music stopped had to drink the most in the allotted time.
I swear she’s about to blow..
Nivea confirmed to her guests that she’s expecting a lil baby boy and I heard she walked away with a ton of goodies for her new arrival.? Check out more flix and a brief video from her shower below: Continue Reading…
