The 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards
Oct 19 | by Natasha
Yesterday, YBF celebs hit up the Atlanta Civic Center for the 2008 BET Hip Hop Awards: Not a completely A-list red carpet, but folks showed up and showed out. Ciara and Keri Hilson hit the carpet looking fabulous. Monica brought her man Rocko along. The red carpet was complete with some serious WTF moments. Who is Haitian Fresh and why is this O.K.? And it must have been Foolywang Chain Day as Shawty Lo, Gorilla Zoe, and Plies all brought the foolishness: Boo. And of course, all 5 ladies of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" hit the carpet. Lots more from the BET Hip Hop Awards when you read the rest... 50 Cent, Big Boi, T.I., and Russell Simmons all hit the carpet. Even 50 looks like he's too old for this ish. Hey Mr. Harris. Looks like he left Tiny at home again. Or just left her off the red carpet. Ciara rocked a pretty cute all black look with gold accents. Lady of Rage is still rocking rough with her afro puffs. Angel Lola Luv...you fail. I would say the same to you Yo Yo but I don't disrespect legends. Well, today I'm not. Monica rocked a pretty cute look with her black Louis bag. Prince of the O-Town Bow Weezy was there. Oh, so it looks like Melyssa Ford has moved on from Flo Rida. She showed up to lots of BET events with this mystery man. UPDATE: That "mystery man" you are seeing with Melissa Ford is Devyne Stephens. You have probably heard of him but he is really big in the industry. He is based in ATL and has an artist development company and has worked with people like Usher and Fergie to name a few. He started off as a choreographer and moved on to artist development. The name of his company is Upfront Entertainment which is actually the label Akon is signed too. I hear he's making in some serious serious mula and that is why Ms. Ford made him her new man. Even Kerry Washington couldn't completely class up this red carpet. WTF are you wearing Soulja Boy? Nelly hit the carpet with a guest. Ice Cube flew solo. Um, E40. Break ya girl off a bit more change so she can step her game up. The matching logo Fendi bag and shoes is really killing me softly. Sean Garrett was there. Pharrell got silly on the carpet. Musiq was there. Keri Hilson finally axed the mushroom cut, went a bit shorter, and rocked a very cute look. LL and his smile hit the carpet. MC Lyte made a fab appearance. Jamal who is playing Biggie in the new Notorious movie hit the carpet. And so did his co-star Derek Luke. No sir T-Pain. Salt-N-Pepa made an appearance. And Yung Joc hit the carpet too. Oh hey Common. With your cute self... Smedium V-Necks are not gangsta Bow Wow. And of course, T-Pain hosted the event. We'll hold off on posting pics from the actual show since many of you will watch next Thursday. Check out the drama with T-Pain replacing Katt Williams as host last minute here and Lil Wayne's on stage pregnancy announcement here. Stay fab!
