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.

WTF to: jaslene, Debra Lee,

WTF to: jaslene, Debra Lee, Lil Mama, panty dropper Rita G Lil mama looks old in the face. I hear she lost her mother recently so I know it's difficult to even get out and try and live life when that happens but I hope she can figure her style out like Teyana Taylor. BTW Teyana Taylor don't think I didn't peep your attitude and lesbian ways on your super sweet 16. I'm just sayin...still like you though. You're original and I like it. I liked jaslene's eye makeup in a george clinton-80's-funky- psychedelic-acid-induced-haze kind of way. I'm lovin the sean john outfit charli bmore wore on the runway--But that still doesn't make her relevant. As cute as Trey Songz is some please let him and Omarion and any others rocking braids to stop. That whole mario-braid my hair- phase is way out and way played. Step it up fellas, get your grown man on! Snoop has some nice model-esque cheekbones...guess all the puff puff pass has it benefits.

wow big ups to etta for

wow big ups to etta for keeping it real about beyonce. No hate but beyonce comes across as fake and bland personality wise she never really shows a human side to her beyond the stage. I think sanaa or jada would do a better job.

[quote comment="39922"]not

[quote comment="39922"]not interested in rip the runway or whateva. Um im still confused on why people think the movie is Etta James Life Story cause its not. But with Matthew adding to it that Beyonce will executive produce the movie im sure it will be all about Etta James. But originally the movie is about Chess Records and the Founder and will feature appearences from ALL ARTIST (not just Etta) signed to the label. So why are we not making a big promotional event of everyone whose playing in the move, i mean their all playing legendary artist and music executives.[/quote] yeah that kinda is bothering me too!

CJ's picture

I think Lauren London looks

I think Lauren London looks great!! I really like her, she is an example of a young star who is on the come up and she is not known for being wild and crazy and whoring around. I don't know, that Rita G chick looks a lot slimmer in these pics than she does in the video...maybe she lost a few pounds. T-Pain looks horrible....like a fool.
keke's picture

1. Her entire outfit is

1. Her entire outfit is hideous but let's zero in on something in particular...is Nina G rocking hologram pants? I had a folder that looked like that in 8th grade. Along w/ selling her used panties this is inexcusable...I'm through. 2. T Payne paid that much money for yellow teeth huh? Loser. 3. Lil Mama won't look right till she's 40. Period. 4. B gets props for trying, but please Ms. Knowles, stick to singing.

You negretas are some fluking

You negretas are some fluking haters. Lauren does not wear a weave. Its called layers . And if she did wear a weave it would be damn near the same length as her normal hair. Its so many things in life to talk about and ya'll talkin about one of the hottest chicks in the game cause her hair was a lil messy. Flucking loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooosers. Go ahead get mad. No one gives a fluck you miserable messes.

Hudson or Angela Bassett. What it the crispy hell can B do with that role, except look mess it up[/quote] I totally agree...even Alicia Keys would have been a QUALITY selection. I wouldn't mind paying the $20 movie charge to see Ms. Keys star in this movie. I guess the producers think that Beyonce would sell more tickets... but they shouldn't short change the public and think they can't actually appreciate depth, wisdom, talent, AND beauty.

Lauren is naturally beautiful but I'm not feeling her look in these pictures, something isn't right. Lil Mama looks very uncomfortable. Charli looks like she has gained some weight - cute though. Rita G looks a HOT MESS! Nelly looking good Cherri is rocking her lil outfit SMH @ T-pain

I have to ask...what is going

I have to ask...what is going on with Cheri Dennis' teeth? In every pic she is giving the same whack smile like her grill is the worst.

Maybe you should change that

Maybe you should change that lil mama comment, she does look a mess, but didnt her mama die? that may be a bit hurtful

Damn, Charli Baltimore is

Damn, Charli Baltimore is looking like Casper. She coulda hit the tanning salon right quick if she new she was going to be coming outta hiding. I wondered what ever happened to her. I am starting to love the Sean John women's line. Puffy should put a store in the DC area.

WOW C.Baltimore looks really

WOW C.Baltimore looks really nice...stunning actually. I don't like LL's make-up or hair...that has to be a 1st for me not giving her the thumbs-up. Cassie needs to stick to modeling...its most definitely her thing. Rita's outfit was wack...and I say that in the nicest way possible.
