BET Awards Honor The Usual Suspects

Blue Ivy Carter just got a bunch of shiny new toys to play with. The BET Awards took place in Los Angeles on Sunday, and big winners included Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and, of course, Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé. In some places, this is called starfucking. I mean, imagine if the big Oscar winners this year had been Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Kristen Stewart, and Emma Stone. Yuk. The BET show kicked off with a Kanye-induced bang as the rapper, decked in all-white, joined 2 Chainz and eventual Best New Artist winner Big Sean to perform their runaway rap hit “Mercy,” the kind of song that assaults you if you’re stuck in Brooklyn this summer. West, who brought Kim Kardashian as his date to the awards, also ran through “Theraflu,” the cut that outed the couple in the first place. Like I said, the event was the wrong kind of starfucky.
