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.

Lauren London is a beaut, but

Lauren London is a beaut, but her makeup is too light and her hair is not on point. Lil' Mama needs a stylist. Teyana.... like her style but I didn't like her on "Sweet sixteen" I really like snoop dogg's wife.. she's simple and it shows. She's not phased by the fame.. well it doesn't seem that way at least.... "Dikey" Snoop..I can't stand him/her.... WTF...O.k so we "normalizing" that ish now... enough to put it on the runway... I'll save the rest of my comments on that. Juelz Santana used to be fine... not anymore... seem kinda homoish now...I'm not feeling that whole Jim Jones buddy-buddy thing,ya dig!!!

Yeap Ladies I back you up on this Juelz thing, although I think that he was way hotter back in the days when he dropped his first album, nowadays he looks like a drug addict his smoking 2 much of that Bob Marley that is clearly affecting his skin and behaviour. I love this new chick Teyana swag she’s definitely killing! Cassie she’s a natural runway talent. Lil Mama looks…. Different!

[quote comment="39930"]Lauren London is fabulous, but who is she again? Was she on the hils or something? Why is she famous? Sorry, I can't keep it together. [/quote] Lauren London is the New New from ATL, plus she is one of the baddest bitches out there today. Lauren Conrad is from the Hills, she's white, (love her too).

I was at the show last night

I was at the show last night it was just okay. Trey songz did a wonderful job, as well as nerd and missy. Shante and Snoop were too cute. Day 26 still needs some work though. I am surprised they have not been dismantled yet by Diddy. www.mymoodismusic.com

Study a little, learn about the artists who were around before last week before you make comments like that.

Oh, lawd, u don't have to have overcome "battles" to play the role... Charli is a pretty chick...wrong choice of 'fit... Lil Mama is trying to get her grown woman on...but she is just going about it the wrong way, and she does need some assistance..

Charli Baltimore needed

Charli Baltimore needed either some stockings or some sunshine on them pale as milk legs of hers. someone PLEASE tell Lil' Mama to NEVER wear her hair pulled back from her 9-head again. Also, please tell that child to STOP wearing her granny's clothes. she already has a "mature" face. let's not make it worse... and just let me say... YOU GO ETTA!!!! Tell miss Beyaki that she can't EVER come close to your prowess and her playing this role is a joke. a bad one at that.

----Bee has the chance to really dig deep like Jamie did in Ray and learn about this real life person and I believe if she sits back and absorbs herself with this woman and information about her she could actually play this role...I am rooting for you Bee to step your acting game up... ----I love Lauren London she is so fab... ----Rip the Runaway was just ...blah....really...

Ugh. Lil' Mama makes me cry.

Ugh. Lil' Mama makes me cry. RuPaul should give her lessons on how to step up her Drag Queen game...and Tyra could help too. FYI, Estelle is not new, just new to America which is why John Legend is pimpin’ her out like he discovered her. She's been doing the damn thing in her country just as longer (If not longer) than he's been around. Brit R&B/Hip Hop continues to be slept on by average American black folk I see... black folk I see...

The only type of movies they

The only type of movies they will keep beyonce in are singer roles. The industry knows she can't act, but because movies are in a slump they are trying to get people in with big names. It is sad that the other cast memebers are not being mentioned. I remember Diana Ross in Mahagony and I swear that is my favorite movie...Diana didnt have to sing because she knew what she was doing. Matthew Knowles knows how to Pimp her, now she is executive producer? wtf? He couldnt pull that move with Dreamgirls because they were not having that. Etta James is a legend who have overcome obstacles and battles, B has experienced nothing except for not winning an Oscar for Dreamgirls. I think the co-star will once again shine more than B. Just my own Opinion, I dont need people to battle me over the internet.

I think Lil Mama looks like a

I think Lil Mama looks like a black version of Lucille Ball. Their making her look to old! Lauren London's hair is not tight! Weave color and texture is off, but she is a beautiful girl. I like Snoop's wife, Shaunte...leave her alone. Cassie needs to go crawl back in her hole somewhere...no talent. Would be nice to have Charlie Baltimore back on the scene with a rap album. Rita G is a sloppy mess! Flo rida is HOT! Juelz Santana is so fine! I think T-Pain tries to cover up his ugliness with all that bafunoory clown outfits he's always wearing...stop that ish!

Lauren just needed to take her right hand and finger-comb her (straight) hair to blend it into her (wavy) weave. This looks like the BROKEDOWNEST.RED.CARPET.EVER.
