BREAKING: T-Pain Replaces Katt Williams As BET Hip Hop Awards Host Last Minute!

This is way too much confusion for a damn Saturday.  Sources say BET pulled a last minute late night 4AM switch up and replaced Katt Williams with T-Pain as the host of the Hip Hop Awards.  The awards just finished taping in Atlanta and don't air until next Thursday.   But YBF sources all over the scene of the awards tonight say that T-Pain indeed hosted and Katt Williams never hit the stage as planned.    The real drama is the cause of the switch up.  TheYBF.com was told exclusively by an incredibly reliable source that Katt and the BET execs got into it something serious last night, tempers flared, and Katt got fired.  Gotta love the haters huh Kat?.   More of this drama when you read the rest...

The 2008 Spirit Of Life Awards

Lots of YBF celebs hit up the 2008 Spirit of Life Awards in Santa Monica last night: A fabulous looking Rihanna and her former boss Jay-Z made an appearance.  I guess this was one of Jay's stops before his own concert in Hollywood last night. The Cannons were on hand as Mariah was there to perform. Why does Nick always look like his wife just ordered him to come take the picture and he has no clue WTF is going on? Keyshia Cole and Erykah Badu performed as well. And Toni Braxton hit the red carpet looking 21 and not 41.  Hate her. Lots more pics when you read the rest...

Music Fab: BET's Hip Hop Honors Lineup+J-Hud & T.I. Blow Up The Charts

Today BET announced that nominee MVP Lil’ Wayne, multi-platinum rapper Ludacris, West Coast boss The Game, and dirty south stunner Young Jeezy will top off an all-star roster of performers, including Common, T-Pain, Lady of Rage and N.E.R.D. Delivering nothing less than an electrifying show, the BET HIP HOP AWARDS will go down at Atlanta’s Civic Center on Saturday, October 18 and premiere on BET Thursday, October 23 at 8:00 p.m. It'll be hosted by Katt Williams of course. Showcasing past and present music icons, this year’s BET HIP HOP AWARDS takes the competition to a whole new level with scheduled appearances by a slew of hip hop heavyweights including GZA, Wu-Tang Clan, Raekwon, Masta Killa, U-God, Inspectah Deck and RZA. Adding to the hype, rapper Jadakiss will pump up the crowd as celebrity announcer, while the famed DJ Drama spins all night. A special tribute will also be paid to female pioneers in hip hop who have paved the way for women in a predominantly male industry. Nice. In other news, Jennifer Hudson's self titled album is #2 on the Billboard charts this week. And it's the biggest debut for any female R&B album since 2004. Congrats Jenny! And T.I., who released last Tuesday with Jenny, is killing the charts with his Paper Trail album. It's #1 everywhere and his singles "Live Your Life" and "Whatever You Like" are also #1 and/or approaching it everywhere right now. Congrats Mr. Harris!

VH1 Hip Hop Honors Red Carpet

YBF folks hit the red carpet of the VH1 Hip Hop Honors show last night.  And Tracy Morgan who hosted the night brought the foolishness of course. Q-Tip and MC Lyte hit the carpet.  They would make a cute couple... Nicole Murphy was there putting 20 year olds to shame as usual. Eve and Juelz Santana hit the carpet. And what's that we see on Joy Bryant's face?  Makeup? Damn.  I never thought I'd see the day.  She's looking fabulous with it too. More pics when you read the rest...

The 2008 Emmy Awards

The lack of YBF folks on the Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet last night was ridiculous. But here's the few black and brown folks in attendance: Lady O opened the show as only Lady O could.  And that ish wasn't a 20 second long ass breathless run on  sentence a la Britney Spears either.  She looked fabulous in her red gown. Vanessa Williams rocked a Kevan Hall print gown and looked simply fabulous in it.  And "Ugly Betty" got robbed last night. And as for Mrs. Longoria-Parker: I surprisingly loved this look on her.  I know most folks will disagree but there's something about it I love. And I typically hate any type of bows on clothing--they just scream COUNTRY to me. She wore a Marchesa flapper style dress with a huge bow tie on the bust like she was wrapped up to be Tony's present.   It was definitely a fashion risk but it works for her.  And honestly nobody else could really pull this off other than Eva and her overly self tanned miniature self. Diddy hit the red carpet looking dapper as usual.  He was nominated for his producer role for "Raisin In The Sun".  I'm just in shock Mama Combs is lookin' real nice for this one.  Diddy clearly put her in check before they even thought about leaving the house. And only Diddy would commit this type of divo act on the red carpet. More pics when you read the rest...
