I like a long haired thick red bone
Open up her legs then filet Mignon that pu**y
I'm a get in and on that pu**y
If she let me in I'm a own that pu**y
Gon' throw it back and bust it open like you posed' to
Girl I got that dope d**k
But the foolishness and disrespect didn't stop there. The dancers on the stage appeared to be black girls in their teens and tweens. You can see it here. I'm not easily offended by things but this performance was disgusting. You don't rap this kind of song on an awards show, especially when it's dedicated to the legacy of an international icon we just lost days ago. On top of that, Drake and Lil' Wayne exploited and disrespected these young GIRLS. What they did was SICK, SICK, SICK. Obviously these cats don't care about us black women or black girls. Once again sistas are told the best thing we got going is between our legs. Why didn't Lil' Wayne and Drake perform something more appropriate? Better question, why didn't the producers of the show tell them to try something else? That song was not appropriate for television whether Michael Jackson had passed away or not. Hold up. I forgot we're talking about
In between the crude lyrics, Lil' Wayne and his crew shouted RIP to MJ. I'm sure MJ rested peacefully as "P-bombs" echoed through the Shrine Auditorium, reminding everyone why he broke racial barriers in music 25 years ago. So Lil' Wayne can rap about "fillet Mignon-ing" women's vajajays as middle- school girls snap their fingers and twist their hips. That's way more romantic and sophisticated than Ne-Yo's version of MJ's "Lady in My Life" performed earlier that night.
So Listen To My Heart
Lay Your Body Close To Mine
Let Me Fill You With My Dreams
I Can Make You Feel Alright
And Baby Through The Years
Gonna Love You More Each Day
So I Promise You Tonight
That You'll Always Be The Lady In My Life
The BET Awards was the first program to honor MJ, but they dropped the ball so hard it shattered. They don't really care about us black people. Because if the powers-that-be truly had an interest in the image of black folks, most of the programs wouldn't glorify ignorance and incompetency. Between T-Pain coming on stage with a necklace the size of his chest that read "Big Ass Chain" and Ving Rames' coonish "Baby Boy" skit with Tyreese I was done that night. There seemed to be a problem with host Jamie Foxx being cued to read the teleprompter. Many times he was staring at the cameras for a few seconds before saying anything.
Davey D made an excellent observation, noting that there wasn't even a moment of silence for the King of Pop. At least Ne-Yo and Jamie Fox gave moving tributes to MJ. I understand the BET team had to make last minute changes but the Drake and Lil' Wayne's act should've been axed. And I wanted to see more quality tributes to MJ. Chaka Khan and the O-Jays were there. Why didn't they sing a couple of MJ hits? Like my friend suggested, Ginuwine could have busted a few MJ moves since Usher wasn't there to perform.
So the big losers of Sunday night's award show were the people BET doesn't seem to care about, us. While Exploitation and Ignorance were the reigning champions.
