Tasteless Tribute

Posted in hip hop, Music on June 29, 2009 by Jarrod

Last night , BET tried to simultaneously put on an awards and tribute show but instead, only succeeded in creating a mockery of both black people and Michael Jackson. There were some positive highlights (Ne-Yo’s solo performance and Beyonce’s rendition of Ave Maria to name a few) but in all, the show had the look and organizational feel of a glitzy talent show (think Star Search) than a professional awards ceremony. From Jamie Foxx’s parodic performance of the late King of Pop to T-pain’s incessively gaudy neckwear, the entire show was a total embarrassment. But hey, what else would you expect from BET?
