More Pre-BET Awards Ish & Performance News

We've got more pics from the red carpet arrivals for Debra Lee's Pre-BET Awards dinner this weekend:

LeToya Luckett looked fab in this coral dress.

Pooch Hall and his wife Linda hit the carpet looking extra happy.  They also have 3 kids together.

La La hit the carpet in this nice white belted dress.

And Rocsi's look...I still can't decide if I love it.  I know one thing, LisaRaye is probably thinking this chick stole her man and her signature color.

Our BET sources tell us that New Edition may be coming together to perform a tribute to Michael Jackson tonight at the BET Awards.  That'll be interesting.  We also hear Damian Hall from Guy is involved in a MJ tribute as well. More red carpet pics when you read the rest....

Fonzworth Bentley and Juicy J held it down for the fellas.

Debra Lee looked nice in all black.

Elise Neal rocked a long maxi dress.

Love Wendy Raquel Robinson--chick is always extra happy on the red carpet.

Ray-J and his mom hit the carpet.

Tocarra rocked an interesting black dress.  Loves the shoes though.

Terri Vaughn looked nice as usual.

Terry Crews and his wife hit the carpet.  Somebody must have not gotten a dress code memo...

And Tatyana Ali looked fabulous in this multi-pink dress.

I hear Usher walked off Larry King's show last night.  He's in town to tribute Michael Jackson at tonight's awards, and stopped by the show to discuss his idol.  But after the conversation turned to negativity and focusing on Michael's addictions and issues, Usher said:
“I realize this is your platform, but a family has lost a son, a brother, a father and they are still mourning the loss, all the other stuff will eventually come out but I can’t believe we are sitting here talking about addiction at this point!”
He shook Larry's hand and left on a good note.  Those who actually saw the show confirm that Usher was there via satellite and did not "walk off".  But did put Larry King's guests who were being disrespectful to Michael's memory in check.   Glad he did.  He still left on a good note and was invited back.

I saw the Larry King

I saw the Larry King Interview, and both Usher and Liza Minelli put Larry and the others in their places are were promptly cut off from the show. I though it was rude and disrespectful of Larry and crew to do that. I liked Larry up until then, but I won't watch his show anymore. Kudo's to Usher and Liza.

There is a very insightful

There is a very insightful article on Michael Jackson today at Time.com. Everyone should read it, it made me sad but the truth is the truth. He was a sad, glorious, beyond talented man but he had so many problems it's a wonder he didn't ebd up in a strait jacket. I just don't understand why his family, especially Janet since she seems the most sane one, didn't do more to help him.

LIL 7 CUP FOOD PROCESSOR: Queen of the hot pants and her hairstyle. Yep she contributed a lot to our society. She should be idolized from now until the end of time. Thats not what I was saying,we all know the no one can compare to Michael Jackson. But for people to say that she wasnt known in the world is far from true. People in other parts of the world could tell u that Paris Hilton carries a damn chiauaha, regardless of her LACK of work, thats still a simple, albeit, stupid reason people know her.

PULEEEEEZE: LOL, puleeze,

PULEEEEEZE: LOL, puleeze, the above poster was right. I even saw on another site, where the interview was posted; this was sometime ago and she did state her daughter would be disowned. People who lived and grew up in Texas verified her family was racist. I will see if the site still has the interview, and I would like you to find a link with Farrah Lobbying for African American rights. Her Family is not her! lol Seriously?? Go google it them maybe you will find it. Whatever the case, it's no reason to bash a dead person and then say others are wrong when people on here are doing the same thing

So what? Who cares what she

So what? Who cares what she thought a generation ago? Leave the woman in peace for her son's sake. I don't give a damn about her 92 year old daddy, I expect someone of his generation to think the way he did. And his beliefs probably did rub off on his daughters, again so what?

Even when that crazy Kim

Even when that crazy Kim Jong-Il of North Korea was asked whom did he admire most in the world he said Michael Jordan. Black culture is huge in Asia, Europe and the Middle-East. In Iraq the most loved and famous foreign celebrity is Lionel Richie, ugh, just kidding. Michael's death was covered by news agencies the world over, his face was on the front covers of newspapers everywhere the day after he died. I am not dismayed by the negative reporting of the media because this is exactly how they operate. When Britney was going through her troubles they rejoiced and waited with baited breathe for her to have a car accident and die. This is the media, bad news sells and when there is a hint of sexually inappropriateness, it sells like crazy. But its over now, they will drag Michael through the dirt for some time to come but eventually the public will focuse on his magnificent talent. I am able to separate his talent and respect that part of him and for the joy he brought the world. He, like all of us, was flawed and pursued by his demons and for that I am so sorry for him.

Also she was like queen on hotpants Queen of the hot pants and her hairstyle. Yep she contributed a lot to our society. She should be idolized from now until the end of time.

NO HATE!!!: Most of ya’ll need to do some research and stop being so hateful!! Of course we all know MJ’s death could have over shadowed the POPE’s death but Racist, Farrah was’nt. Most of ya’ll don’t know she fought and lobbyed for African American rights down at Universities in Texas before the world even knew who she was. Her own family has even said that she was very private so they are glad that they lay her to rest without so much attention. Stop being so hateful, some of ya’ll talk about what the media is doind to Michael right now, albeit very very hateful, but ya’ll are doing the same. Please spare me the blog beef with all the name calling bcus thats not even my style. LOL, puleeze, the above poster was right.

Grace: The majority of

Grace: The majority of people from around the world didn’t even know who Farrah was so if the media wants to celebrate her life let them, the woman is gone. MJ is being celebrated allover this planet as far away as China. Fifty years from now MJ will be remembered for his musical artistry above all else. If the media brings up the negative it is par for the course because the media builds people up to tear them down and MJ, bless his tortured soul was far from perfect. It is no joke for a boy to be molested by a male it leaves all kinds of emotional scars, I know because it happened with my brother. So lets be reasonable and expect MJ past to be put on display, they do it with all icons. The most important thing is that God forgave him if he asked forgiveness and that’s what matters. RIP Michael. People around the world knew who Farrah Fawcett was!! Her hair stye alone was copied time and time again and especially during the early 2000's. Also she was like queen on hotpants

Black American culture has been viewed as the coolest culture the world over and everybody knows it. It has been that way forever with people worldwide loving the Blues, Gospel, Jazz, R & B, Rock and Roll, and unfortunately, Rap. It is white & black culture that rules in America and always will.

Precious: I disagree with

Precious: I disagree with you. If they were really his friends, they would have done something before now to with his addiction. Dr. Deepak, knows that there are ways to legally force someone into treatment. If you weren’t willing to come forward while he was alive, don’t trash him now. Perhaps if these so called friends had come forward to the media in the past, he would still be alive.blockquote cite=”comment-537366″>erin: Usher didn’t walk off the show…. and I think his ‘anger’ came off as him trying to take a ridiculous stand against Deepak Chopra (a spiritual advisor & friend to Michael for far longer than Usher has known Michael). Deepak was discussing addiction… this was not a tabloid-ish discussion about allegations that were proven untrue in a court of law. It is pretty clear at this point that Michael had some addiction issues. They shouldn’t be ’swept under a rug’, or denied… they likely were the reason for his untimely death. It’s sad; but addiction is not ‘negative’ it is a disease. I see no reason why Michael & his legacy can’t be discussed while simultaneously discussing the disease he battled. People should take the stigma off of addiction. I was born in the 70’s… Michael was plastered all over my walls in the 80’s. I loved him, he was amazing, a genius, an icon… he was brilliant. He was also perfectly human, and flawed… Deepak Chopra understood Michael’s complexities. Usher came off as someone who wanted to take a stand on something, but didn’t really know what he was talking about. Chopra was one of the few who did take a stand while Michael was alive. He refused to fill a narcotics prescription for him... and in turn, Michael alienated him. He talked about how every time he confronted Michael about the addiction issues, Michael would stop returning his calls. If you've ever dealt with someone who has addiction issues... you can only do so much, until they are ready to commit to getting help themselves. Chopra, however, was a true friend to Michael, in that he wasn't enabling him. I do agree that the media shouldn't focus on Michael's legal troubles. He was found innocent of those... and though I may be in the minority, never really thought Michael was guilt of any of those allegations. Talking about addiction is a different issue altogether... I don't think in tarnishes his musical legacy at all. It is a sad fact... and perhaps, Michael's story can still save others.

REALLY?!: IDK Maybe

REALLY?!: IDK Maybe because she familarizes her self with “black” culture, just like Robin Thick, Eminem, Fat Joe, Paul Wall, and J-Lo once did along with others. With the exception that La La genuinely likes black people (not saying J-Lo didn’t but we’ve seen how shes distance her self). Plus blacks and hispanics are sometimes looked at as one which is why Rocsi works at B.E.T and she’s not black either, but I see what you’re saying. btw isn’t B.E.T owned by Jewish people/company now? They identify with black when it is to their advantage to do so. J Lo identified 'black' when she was dating Diddy. As for the rappers, their milkin it to. When it's cool or 'street', they identify black. Soon as its not cool anymore, they will fall back into their white and Hispanic roots.

anon: Hey - Did you hear

anon: Hey - Did you hear what killed Farrah Fawcett?some asshole.. Good one. I think her ASS CANCER was AIDS related. That is why she stayed in Europe seeking experimental treatments that are not offered here in the US. I know for a fact that a lot of AIDS infected celebrities go to Europe seeking alternative remedies. Anal cancer is a rare cancer and is often associated with AIDS. Let them racist bitches on the other boards know what's really up.

Wait!!! not to speak ill of

Wait!!! not to speak ill of the dead, but Farrah was no angel her damn self (no pun intended). On the MSNBC site are they commenting on her screwing Ryan O'Neal while she was still married to Lee Majors???? Back in 05, before her illness was diagnosed, you could look at Farrah and tell she was a heavy boozer, it was written all over her face. Are they discussing her drug and alcohol usage on the MSNBC board????? Its ALL bad, but don't slam Michael like he was Lucifer himself to build this broad up. Can't wait for my people to pay tribute to Michael this evening.

FARRAH was a 2 bit actress.

FARRAH was a 2 bit actress. Her death was not unexpected. She was famous for a calender,one season of an series and a bunch of failed flops of movies that bombed,and the mother of a drug addict. Her death simply does not have the impact that MJ had. Even the BBC pre-emptied their news shows to carry MJ specials..they only do that for royalty. MJ was pop royalty

@RACIST FARRAH DESERVES TO RIP - Are you serious? Makes me hate her even more now. I'm so glad MJ overshadowed her! What has she done that is even remotely on Michaels radar? NOTHING! The only thing I've heard about her is being in friggin' Charlies Angels and one stupid poster. Big deal. And people are praising her on MSN like she has done something so special. Shows how white people really are.

Death is no joking matter. 3 kids are without a father, but apparently it’s ok to joke about MJ, but not Farrah because she is blonde(dyed) with blue eyes..Racism IS alive and well. The reason MJ was doing his tours over in London is because they love him overseas, and are not so judgemental as in the US..smh FARRAH'S FAMILY WAS NOT BLACK FRIENDLY. IN THE 70'S AT THE HEIGHT OF HER POPULARITY, FARRAH HERSELF SAID SHE WOULD DISOWN HER DAUGHTER IF SHE BROUGHT A BLACK MAN HOME. MAYBE SHE CHANGED IN HER LATER YEARS, WHO KNOWS. ITS SAID THAT HER 90 YR OLD TEXAN DAD USES THE WORD 'NIGGER' LIKE WE SAY 'HELLO', BUT THE IRONY OF IT ALL IS, A BLACK MAN'S DEATH, OVER SHADOWED HER DEATH.

Since the show isn't coming on until 5pm (PT) here, @ 4:30pm (PT) hubby and I will be firing up the grill/stove, with 8oz Filet Mignons and Crab Cakes, along with a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon....LOVE red wine with beef. Don't know why, but it's the perfect pairing. I'm looking forward the BET Awards....It will be bittersweet. I will be TiVo-ing it as well. I've been listening to Mr Jackson's music all weekend. I like ALL his music, but I've been listening to his early music; no special equipment to enhance his voice, just good music, wholesome lyrics and very few instruments. Those were the good ole days. RIP Michael, you were are loved.

Good for Usher, he earn mad

Good for Usher, he earn mad respect for that! I think it is sad that some of the media had to turn a tragedy into something negative and mean towards towards the legend that is Micheal Jackson disregarding his family, friends and fans. And the so called "friend" that was speaking ill of Michael is just looking for his 15 minutes. Again, that is so sad but then again there goes white media for you. They can bring everyone down especially someone like Michael Jackson but "gasps" if you speak ill of Elvis who stole most of his material from black entertainers, was a racist, and among many other things I won't list but they fail to mention those things. I have two words for the white media "fuck you" I can't wait for the day that black people and people of color takes over that field as well, maybe some ethical and unbias journalism will finally be reported. Whew, enough of my rantings. But on a different note: I think for the most part everyone looks great, Not feeling the shoes Rocsi has on and Tocarra dress is ill fitting and doesn't do nothing for her shape. I know my mom can't wait for New Edition!!!!
