BET's Rip The Runway 2008+Etta James Says Beyonce Aint Ready For HER Jelly

BET's Rip the Runway 2008 went down last night at Hammerstein Ballroom.  I really hope Diddy made an announcement that he's snatching Cassie off record making and giving her an exclusive modeling contract for Sean Jean.  It would really be helpful to my ears and nerves.   You trying to make a comeback Vinny? Snoop and his wife Shante hit the red carpet. Our favorite "I'm selling my draws with my natural scent for $25" video chick Rita G was there. And WTF is really going on here?  I know video chicks only get paid so much per piece of clothing they're not wearing per video, but damn.  Didn't Kanye hook you up enough to buy you 1 complete outfit so you don't need to piece together 4 different ones?  I'm just sayin'.  Chick is seriously looking like a backup drummer for Gem and The Holograms. Flo Rida was there. YBF hip hop chick Teyana Taylor was there to perform. So dudes are bringing their puppies on red carpets now?  That's so not gangsta Terrance.  You would think he and Rocsi would be trying their damndest to  lower their wack factor. Lauren London looked fabulous as usual. Loves this whole Sean Jean Women's look she's rocking. So "Brandon T." is it?  This is not a photoshoot or a video boo.  Plus, Nick Cannon already has the skinny bird-chest with a dab of arm muscle always in a wife beater look on lock.  Sorry. Debra Lee was there looking out of place as usual. Cheri Dennis is killing me with this continuous Rainbow Brite look.  Me likey the Lamb shoes though. John Legend's new artist Estelle was there. So was Pharrell and N.E.R.D.: Trey Songz and Juelz Santana made an appearance. Please stop it T-Pain: You look foolish. Jaslene's another one who's a victim of piecing together outfits.  Where have youuu been Charli Baltimore?  I do find it extra interesting she came out of hiding to hit the BET runway.   Lil Mama is still playing around in somebody's makeup bag.  And that ish needs to be stopped.  ASAP. Missy performed during the show. Snoop from The Wire modeled for Sean John. Charli hit the runway too. N.E.R.D. performed. And I really hope Shante wasn't debuting anything from her Boss Lady or CoCoCheri line or whatever.  That ish she conveniently advertises on Fatherhood looks nothing short of extra homemade. Teyana performed. And Lauren and Nelly hosted:
Photogs: Wargo/G. Gershoff 
Fab.  The show will air on BET March 4th at 9p est. And in other news, Etta James says Beyonce has some things to work on before B plays her in her life story.
It's a privilege and an honor to have somebody like that girl. I don't think she looks like me, but that's all right. They can fix that up...I wasn't as bourgie as she is, she's bourgeois. She knows how to be a lady, she's like a model. I wasn't like that... I smoked in the bathroom in school, I was kinda arrogant, so those are some of the things I would want to tell her.
She also says she wonders if Beyonce will be able to do a song the way she could....and she'll teach her a few things.  Gotta love her.

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

i heard this was fake..but if

i heard this was fake..but if its not: Then i can understand why Etta James would be upset,but the "get her ass whopped" and the "i can't stand her" part is childish,uncalled for and quite frankly Etta James is well into her what 60's? 70"s? SHE'S not going to do it.I don't think that Beynce didn't consult with Etta James to be spiteful,she's smarter than that,And i also don't think that she sung At Last for the president to be spiteful,i was a good choice,and Beyonce has experience singning it also,amazingly at that.The bottom line is that i think Beyonce has the right to sing the song also,and if Obama wanted Etta James to sing it he could have easily asked her,but he didn't.

[quote comment="41681"]You know I never comment on these blogs but today I just had to address all these haters on this site. First of all Beyonce is playing Etta James because she tried out and won the role.If you don't like it so what keep it moving.People talking about she don't have the same life experiences as Etta James well do almost any actor when they playing somebody else in a movie.As for the person who said all her movies have flopped except for the one with J-Hud girl get a life and why you at it do your research.Nothing Beyonce does ever flops and for all those who don't believe me once again google her and do your research.It seems to me unlike someone else said she do a lot more than booty shaking or else everyone wouldn't be talking about her. But while I'm at it what do the haters who hate 24/7 do for a living? Did you make 27 million last year? If not I don't think you have any kind of room to criticize her.[/quote] Thank God for google.com, eh?

Haters can say what they will, but the proof of her talent, her potential, and her versatility will abound. I am so waiting for this movie to come out and her country album.[/quote] Versatility? She's played a singer in pretty much everything she's done! :lol: Etta looks crazy in this picture. I cracked up after reading. They kinda look alike........eery, ain't it? ;)

Dear Blogmaster: Could you

Dear Blogmaster: Could you possibly help us keep this site "GROWNFOLKS" and eliminate the young'ins when they start posting profanity and foolishness? Maybe they should just observe how to participate in witty banter for a while. They are clearly NOT READY to speak when grown folks are talking.

He can be holding a pink

He can be holding a pink purse the man is still fine as hell.. Trey songs too the sexiest men in the music industry... Beyoncee needs to quit trying to act the only reason why she was OK in dreamgirls was because it was mostly singing... Damn i wish she'd get a grip and come to terms that her acting is shit. LIL Mama what cant you say the girl looks like a uglier version of bow wow.. Her hair is always whack. How much money does she have y she cant afford a stylist. She could of even just permed her hair and where some bangs. Rocksie please kill yourself. Damn i miss FREE i wonder where she at. Lauren is sweet but she had to much unnecessary make up.. To cute for that. Dont let this industry suck you in, you even lost so much weight soon you'll be to thin.
tdotsgspot's picture

Beyonce as we have all

Beyonce as we have all established unless we are in denial cant act for shit.. the only reason y she did an ok job in dream girls was because it was mostly singing and doing the stuff she does on the norm that she should stick too. Fuc$ i wish she'd quit the acting gig and stick to singing...

Not feeling Lauren make-up at

Not feeling Lauren make-up at all. Like others have said, and it has nothing to do with not knowing what "fab" is. I just didn't see it on those Lauren pics. And i think Alicia would have been a good choice for the role, but i think Bey can pull it off.

Lauren London is a beaut, but

Lauren London is a beaut, but her makeup is too light and her hair is not on point. Lil' Mama needs a stylist. Teyana.... like her style but I didn't like her on "Sweet sixteen" I really like snoop dogg's wife.. she's simple and it shows. She's not phased by the fame.. well it doesn't seem that way at least.... "Dikey" Snoop.... I can't stand him/her.... WTF...O.k so we "normalizing" that ish now... enough to put it on the runway... I'll save the rest of my comments on that. Juelz Santana used to be fine... not anymore... seem kinda homoish now...I'm not feeling that whole Jim Jones buddy-buddy thing,ya dig!!!

It looks like Lil Mama used

It looks like Lil Mama used to be a tom boy, so it may be very difficult for her to look and pose like a lady. As for Beyonce, she is going to have to put on a hell of an act if she wants to be taken as a serious actress. Judging from her past movies, I did not see any REAL acting. She really needs to get OUTSIDE the singing and video box and deal with REAL issues, instead of somebody handing her a script and showing her how it's done.

First and foremost, Rip The

First and foremost, Rip The Runway seems to be getting old. I wish BET would find something new and creative to do for 2008. With that said, Lauren London is a beautiful girl and love that she is doing her thing in this business, BUT she did look a little off. The hair and makeup just wasn't working for me. Lil' Mama is just trying too hard. I wish she would just be herself and find her own style. Cassie seems to fit more with the model business because singing was not her forte. Teyana Taylor looked cute, as did Jaslene minus the shoes. As for Beyonce playing Etta James, I think if she really puts in the work and does her reserach, she MIGHT be able to pull it off. Well see...

Could someone tell me who

Could someone tell me who makes those boots that Lauren London is wearing? I needed to get those like yesterday! Also, her make-up is a little off, but that's because the foundation they put on her was a little to cool in color for her warmth-colored skin. Please let me know about those boots, ASAP!

Yeap Ladies I back you up on this Juelz thing, although I think that he was way hotter back in the days when he dropped his first album, nowadays he looks like a drug addict his smoking 2 much of that Bob Marley that is clearly affecting his skin and behaviour. I love this new chick Teyana´s swag she’s definitely killing! Cassie she’s a natural runway talent. Lil Mama looks…. Different!
