VIDEO FAB: Jay-Z's "D.O.A." & Joe Jackson & Janet Jackson Speak At The BET Awards


Joe Jackson hit the BET Awards red carpet last night. And he stopped to chat with CNN's John Lemon. This whole interview gets a big WOW. Here's Janet's speech on stage last night on behalf of her family:

And here's Jay-Z's official "D.O.A." video that premiere last night after the award show:

Nice.

Comments

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

In all honesty. Although I

In all honesty. Although I may not agree with Joe Jackson's overrall approach in the situation I think people often expect people to grieve in the same way and it doesnt work that way. Joe jackson has always had the persona of a man made of steel. And we all dont know what it is like to be the father of Michael Jackson who people all over the world adore but never really had a personal relationship with. And the same media that tore Michael down for all those years despite lies and allegations and whatever personal decisions he made, is the same media that is now trying to make his father look like a terrible human being. And although the Jackson family is grieving, i am sure they are being strong right now as they have clearly banned together to make moves in the right direction on Michael's behalf. Seriously, people jermaine jackson asked for privacy on Thursday and we should respect and that includes the media that wants to put the family on blast every 5 seconds and see who is crying the most about this tragic situation. Goodness

I don't want to speak ill of

I don't want to speak ill of someone's father but Mr.Joe Jackson is a very cold man. He didn't even want to acknowledge Michael as his son at the beginning of the interview. And he said the most important statement that he wanted to announce was about his new label/record company. he knows that the money is about to pour in because of Michael's death. poor Michael. I feel so sad for him knowing that he even died with his father only caring about making money off of him. So sad.

I don't think you can jus say

I don't think you can jus say that Joe Jackson didn't care!!!! It lookz like he was affected but he tol his lawyer and publicist to speak on hiz behalf about personal affairs! When our mom died we cried behind doors but in public we jus didn't show too much. That didn't mean we didn't care so stop sayin that cuz itz def. not tru!!!!

Damn Joe Jackson. Always a f'ing opportunist. I thought this would give him a chance to step up to the plate and be a father.... a real father. But he's using his son's death to capitalize on the "next" thing. Unbelievable.

white chocolate: Jay Z is

white chocolate: Jay Z is very talented- his lyrics actually have meaning unlike half of the garbage out there. He uses music that is anything but typical. He is classy and unlike Diddy who shamelessly plugs how amazing he is, Jay Z does it in a classy way. Let’s face it, Jay Z is a class act YASSSS!

I have to say one thing here

I have to say one thing here - being a multi raced person, I must mention, Jamie Fox claimed "MJ was ours", but the bottom line is he belonged to all. It doesn't matter if your black or white. Or even ,Asian, Indian, whatever...... MJ felt comfortable around Liz Taylor, his VERY BEST FRIEND, so this whole claiming because out skin once matched is BS. Of course he made in impact on Black culture and acceptance, I am NOT going to deny this, but he does not want to be claimed by one "state of mind" - he was there to entertain "the people" period

Are we really suprised in BET

Are we really suprised in BET , c'mon none of they're award shows have ever been good to begin with.I give the show an overall grade a D.They could have kept the show the way it was and scheduled another at a later date to honor the late great. Yes,it would have been delayed but honoring him is honoring him and atleast it would have been done with some class and would have been tasteful.However some of the performances were good and some of them deserved the *side-eye.Like beyonce was doing toooooo much with that outfit. And Jay-z....well he just need to sit down.Keri was okaye but the end..babygirl why? And New Edition was just a hotmess all together. Now what bothered me the intire time was it was too much damn singing.Yes Michael was a great singer..but he was also a great singer. I would have liked to see Chris Brown perform despite his charges and him pleading guilty it was not about him it was about MJackson.And we all know that Chris mimicks Jackson's moves and he does it well.They only honored one side to this phenomenal performer.And i feel they did not do him justice what-so-ever. Jamie Foxx did an okaye job as an house and making it clear that we were not there to grieve a lost but to celebrate a life. And his duet with ne-yo to I'll be there was just beautiful and it brought be to tears.Also Ciara should have danced cos baby girl vocals are not up to par..no matter how much she look like one of the jacksons. R.i.P Michael Jackson [1958-2009) You will be remembered :)

IDIOTS IDIOTS!!!!.... jay Z

IDIOTS IDIOTS!!!!.... jay Z HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH CB NOT PERFORMING....THAT FUKTARD ON TWITTER DOESNT KNOW WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT!!!.....chris brown was axed because he plead guilty...had he not been a punk and plead innocent and faught the charges and gone to trial he would have performed simple as that.... but since he plead guilty advertisers were threatening to pull out.....

are u people for real, anyway

are u people for real, anyway Jay-z had nothing to do with Chris Brown not performing. SO GET OVER IT!!! i have nothing to say about Joe Jackson. AWW POOR JANET, PRAY FOR THEIR FAMILY!
Missbeyfan's picture

Come on now are we really

Come on now are we really suprised at BET? BET's award shows are never really good to begin with. And i agree with whoever said they should have had a seperate show. They should have had at it at a seperate date.Honoring him[mj] holds the same value if they would have done it at a later date at least it would have been planned and tasteful instead of having all that foolywangery on stage. I admit some of the performances were cool.Beyonce && Jayz smh.Beyonce outfit was uneccesary and Jay-z just need to sit down,his music is decent..but..just sit down. I would have liked to see Chris Brown perform because we all know he mimicks MJs moves and does it well. I mean yea we heard singing his song thats just one-side to michaeo..we saw people imitating his style..but we didn't see his dancing.Jamie foxx was good as a host and lighten the mood a little but still...BET didn't do Michael Jackson complete justice.And i think they need to scrape up some more money and re-do that shit cos that was just a hot ghetto mess. && the whole thing with joe jackson *side-eye

XOXOMILAN: I have read all

XOXOMILAN: I have read all the comments and this Jay-z thing is getting way out of hand. You people honestly think Jay- told BET not to have him on the show? Sorry to break it to you but NO!!! Chris Brown was supposed to perform, but when he pled guilty on the domestic charges,he was axed. So now they have to fill that time slot. They offered it to Jay-z and he excepted.*NOTE*(this happened before the death of MJ)So fast forward to a few weeks later. MJ has passed, and Jay-z is the one set to perform not Chris, but seeing as though MJ had such a big influence on Chris,he wanted to perform. So he goes and ask BET, but BET had forgotten that one of it’s sponsors for the award show this year was COVERGIRL. COVERGIRL’s franchise is Rihanna. Now what would that look like for COVERGIRL? So they, not Jay-z, are the ones who put and end to Chris Brown getting his chance to pay tribute to MJ. All you people on here just want to find a reason to dislike Jay-z. Yeah I heard COVERGIRL would pulled the plug if CB performed... Jayz had nothing to do with it!!!

that interview was

that interview was inappropriate for where they were. That guy was a jerk for asking such questions at an award show. I mean come on, Yes Joe Jackson didn't make a lot of sense but those type of question shouldn't have been asked. Joe Jackson should have told him that.

Janet was a big shocker.

Janet was a big shocker. Everyone new Joe was there from his red carpet antics. Janet was strong and brave, didn't look like she made eye contact with Joe was in the front row. I was dissapointed in the BET Awards. I just kept waiting for the big moment to happen (besides Janet) where were the big group of major talent paying tribute to MJ? I kept hope out to the last minute hoping some seasoned entertainers would join Jamie and NeYo who had already performed enough. This was the worst BET Award show ever, from a technical aspect too. Joe Jackson... I saw it live and it made my stomach turned. He should his true colors and anywho who doubt what a horrible person he has their proof now.

The awards were great given

The awards were great given the change of direction that had to be made on short notice. R.I.P Michael I cried when Ne-yo sung "Lady in my life" that has always been one of my top 10 favorite Michael Jackson songs. I loved Jamie "keeping it real" but I think he might be a little chafe from those pants....lmao but it was good to laugh about how we all at some point thought we were Michael if we dressed like him, we would be able to sing & dance like him too. Janet...I was so glad to see someone who REALLY cared about Michael there to speak on behalf of him and the family because Joe is a MESS!!!! My husband and I were saying that he looked like he didn't know where he was during the show and that interview???? In unison we both said WOW!?!?!?!? Does anyone know if he an Katherine are seperated? Is that why he lives in Las Vegas and she at the family home in Encino? Thank GOD she was granted temporary custody of the kids. Pray that she gets full custody of them too. Pray for the family....There is power in prayer

I wonder if all the Jackson's

I wonder if all the Jackson's had planned to stay home and grieve until they saw how the father (Joe) was representing on the red carpet and Janet felt the need to clarify that the rest of the family was not worried about losing the biggest star in the world, they were devastated that they lost their brother. I've seen more people on BET's red carpet speaking with more emotion about the loss than Michael's own father. No wonder Michael seemed such a tortured soul. May he rest in peace.

U people are going Hard on Joe Jackson, he hardly could hear what the interviewer was asking, and he is 80 yrs old, so i can excuse him. The family should NOT let him speak though, cause he is liable to say anything. I guess they are doing that though, cause he made his publicist and lawyer speak

I really hope the rumors

I really hope the rumors about Jay-z stopping CB from performing are not true. It is one thing if BET did not ask him to perform at all, but to ban him because Jay-z said so is ridiculous. Why black folks treat this couple like they are royalty is beyond me, please enlighten me on all the great things they do for society because I don’t see it. Also Beyonce you are a married woman and too old to be wearing outfits like that. If you truly understood the words of the religious song you were singing, you might have thought twice about wearing lingerie. Only BET would stand for this mess, let Jay-z try to threaten the Grammy’s , they would kick him straight off the performance list. They don’t need him, and neither did BET the awards were a failure without without Jay-z. They keep pissing people; nobody is ever too high to fall regardless of how much money you have.

Jay-Z is too old for this

Jay-Z is too old for this rapping ish. He needs to pass the torch. Why havent yal talked about him being the reason chris brown didnt perform…. Camel faced old man. Someone needs to tell him that he’s too old to be bopping around on a stage with his pants sagging off his ass like he’s 22 damn years old. I mean Really “Hova”…Really…Ho Sit Down…This is the same man that smacked Charlie Baltiomre is it not?…The same man that mushed some african woman in the face… How quick we are to forget…. and yal praise him and crucify Chris brown.SMH!!!!!

I will boycott BET from now

I will boycott BET from now on because they used the memory of Michael Jackson to get ratings. Hyping it up like they were rally going to do something. I was so embarrassed watching. I can't wait for the Grammys or any other major award show because I know they would do a way better tribute to the greatest artist of all time and probably ever. Lastly BET needs to hire new management, and creative people, because they are not going in the right direction at all.

LOVECHILD5O4 Wanna know why

LOVECHILD5O4 Wanna know why he has such a problem with half the stuff he refered to in the song, it's because he and Beyonce weren't the first to think of it. Think about it, he is upset with the way that YOUNG kids are doing hip hop now, that's the key word, it's for kids, why be 40 years old talking about kids don't know hip hop. He should just make music that appeals to his age group, which is by the way my age group. When Jay first started out, the older artist in his day thought his music was to graphic and degrading to woman, now he doesn't want to step down from what he assumes is his throne. And if Beyonce did a auto-tune song we wouldn't hear nothing else about, he ought to be upset about artist wearing-out leatards and black and white videos.

This website is so janky, let me finish my comment. The BET awards was a complete disgrace. Half of the people who tuned in including me were waiting for MJ's tribute which didn't happen. Where do i start? -Joe Jackson shocked me by being there, but I will say nothing because people grieve in different ways. -Janet,I have always loved her, and I felt her pain,thought it was so genuine, and strong of her. -On the performances. -Jamie Foxx with Travis Barker and T-pain had the best performance. -Keri Hilson surprised me; I thought the end was too much, but good nonetheless. -Soulja boy had me dancing so he did good. -Beyonce was supposed to do a tribute to Michael was that it? Seriously I know that leotards are for her tour, but it was incredibly disrespectful to wear that while performing a religious song and then paying tribute to a dead person. I'm sure her assistant could have gotten her a white gown. -Jay-z I still don't know what the hype is. -Neyo could have danced a little something -Ciara you should have danced also.

I just think Joe should have

I just think Joe should have stayed home or not addressed the media...his mind just ain't right...proof is in the video. Janet made me wanna cry. Michael was like family to a lot of people which is why so many took his passing so hard...but of course, not in the same manner as those who had the pleasure of having him in their every day life...my heart aches for them. The picture alone...it would have made me burst into tears...she did well...takes a lot of strength to even get the few words out she did.

The mass media hasn't picked

The mass media hasn't picked up the Chandler story for several reasons. 1. The story has the father and sons names mixed up. The childs name is Jordan and the fathers name is Evan. 2. The story has many gramatical errors. 3. There is no reputable source stated in the story. Whether you believe Micheal is innocent or not it's not good to run with something that isn't true. The report that Debbie Rowe isn't going to contest as custodian that came out yesterday is now turning out to be false. Harping on nonsense doesn't help. Hold off and wait until it's reported by a credible source. As far as BET I didn't expect too much from them but they had few great moments. It takes months to plan these shows please remember that it wasn't created to be a tribute to MJ. Being mad because certain things happened that weren't tributory is silly. 3 days isn't long enough to retool a show like this. Yea Joe is a hot mess but he always has been. You have to consider that this is a man who never wanted his kids to call him dad or father so he's not all about the right in his head since the beginning.

Shaking my head at the

Shaking my head at the ignorant childish comments. First ppl think its Jay who pulled CB out and some saying its covergirl, or maybe CB didn't just want to perform. Or maybe BET didn't want him to perform, I mean he did just plead guilty to flucking a female up. People will blamed the Carters for the recession, all these teenage girls on here, getting mad at something that hasn't been even confirmed true. Jay dont give a flcuks about no CB, do u really think he has that much power, ppl will find a why to crucify the man anyway it goes, we know the internet is filled with a bunch of Beyonce haters, so its equally filled with those who hate her husband. Jay-Z is doing him and if u fickles want to believe a bs rumor, go head on cause Jay performance killed last night and so did he his video. Also to point out Jay-Z doesn't think he is God, thats why he asked do you fools listen to music or just skimmed do it, cause he clearly stated in a song, "with the weight of the world on my shoulders thats why they call me Jay-Hova, far from being God, but i work goddamn hard."

Whoa!: Like I said in the

Whoa!: Like I said in the last post, people were having TOO much of a good time last night. I was literally in shock. In the paper today they were saying that Puffy was having a party but he got mad because everybody seemed to forget that MJ is dead. He literally got in they ass about it and play MJ music and told them “Yall not hearing the words!”I have always felt a disgust for Joe Jackson eversince I saw that jackson movie and they showed how Joe used to beat them. Poor Micheal, to be taking ass whippins by day and signing by night for his money hungry father, and Katherine saddens me a bit for allowing it. Oh well, none of that matters now, our sweet MJ is gone.As far as that SPITTER aka Jay Z and that WACK ASS SONG!!! WHY O WHY do they make this man bigger than he seems!!?? He’s wack, his lyrics is wack, he’s trying to be on this neuvo-persona shit,…………..FAIL FAIL FAIL!! Yall saw how he kept moving and his mannerisms during his performance (even in the video)??? I was like Jay STOP!! Why are you trying to be BRAND NEW??? OLD BITCH STFD!! I reeeeaaally don’t like that old ninkumpoop! He thinks he is God..its even in his "name" HOVA=JeHOVAh. The Devil is a liar I'll tell you. And looking at Puff yesterday..you can tell he was disgusted and appalled about what was going on. He wasn't his happy outrageous self.

Here's the thing u guys

Here's the thing u guys should remember about Joe. He comes from an era (and upbringing) where showing emotions was considered a sign of weakness. All he knows to do is to show strength. That's how he was taught. We may all think it's wrong and criticize him for it, but the man doesn't know how to truly express himself, so he reverts to what he knows. It's not entirely his fault. I believe that he cares deeply, but that he just doesn't know how to show it. On the brighter side, Janet was the highlight. She really has so much strength in her. You could see it took everything she had to make that speech. I applaud her and continue to pray for the entire family (Joe included).

R.I.P M J and thanks for the

R.I.P M J and thanks for the work that you started in Africa.He truly made people start taking a look at africa and helping the continent.Hope I get to do the same for my country.I have to say though that Joe Jackson was very much responsible for michael's dying and also the way he turned out.I think it all started with his childhood the teasing,working him like a slave and making him feel like he was not good enough.Watching his interview on cnn it felt like Joe jackson and the doctor planned mike's death.For him to even comment about starting a label meant like he just couldn't wait for michael to go so he can start his career.Let's not forget he was a failed musician and now that Mike is not in the way he can shine.Anyway that just me saying I could be wrong but that is what I felt after watching that clip. R.I.P M J LOT'S OF LOVE FROM AFRICA
