MTV VMAs Are Pulling Out The Stops+YBF Celebs Hit Up The BMI Awards

  The 2008 MTV Video Music Awards are almost here, but big names are still being added to the talent pool of performers and presenters every day. Following Wednesday's big announcement that Britney Spears will be opening the show (she's not "performing" though so maybe MTV did learn their lesson from a couple years ago) comes word that Kanye West will close out the VMAs on Sunday, despite last year's oath that he'd never return. And T.I. hit up the pre-VMA conference yesterday in LA.  With his cute self. I also hear T-pain has formed a new rock band and they may be performing Sunday night as well. Hopefully he put that damn vocoder down...but I doubt it. The VMAs air live on MTV this Sunday (Sept. 7th) at 9p est.     Stars of today’s urban music scene were on hand to salute legendary singing quintet The Jacksons as they were crowned BMI Icons at the performing right organization’s eighth annual Urban Awards ceremony last night at the Wilshire Theatre in Beverly Hills. Of course Janet was there to honor her bros.  The Jacksons were honored for their “unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers.”: Bobby Valentino, Ray-J, Lloyd were on hand and performed a tribute.  Looking like they're asking for an application to join the Jackson 5.  T.I. and Tiny made an appearance. And so did Christina Milian and Keri Hilson.  Fab.   Lots more pics from the award show when you read the rest...

2008 BET Awards: The Show

Here's some folks who skipped out on the red carpet:

Queen was looking fab, and a size Healthy, in this floor length blue number.

Mel B. looked absolutely fab in this gold form fitting dress.

Love that Kanye won some awards.  His album is still one of the hottest of '08.

And Chris and CiCi got it hot on stage with their surprise dance performance.  I know Rih Rih was sitting there mad her ass can't dance to save her life.  Oh well... More pics and vids of last night's performances when you read the rest...

2008 BET Awards Red Carpet, Part 2

So we've checked out the hottest looks, now on to the foolish and everyone else:

Seriously Pretty Ricky?  I guess I should consider this an upgrade since last year they wore silver metallic suits with smoking robes on top in the 300 degree heat.  This year it's just the gold metallic suits.  I'm still mad though.

Oh so now we're bringing our new man Kenyon Martin on the red carpet Trina?  I guess.

While I actually loved her sexy yellow dress and thought she looked fab in it repping for the CGU click, that damn camp LV bag really threw it all off.  Unnecessary. And as for Ashanti's look:

I liked the Marchesa gown, but it wasn't the most fabulous pick she could have chosen to me.  Especially because she couldn't keep that mess closed enough all night. More of the foolishness and everyone else who hit the red carpet last  night when you read the rest...

2008 BET Awards Red Carpet

YBF was on the scene of last night's BET Awards rec carpet.  And you know how we do.  Let's kick this off with the hottest looks of the night:

 

 

Rihanna rocked a gorgeous floor length ruffled soft yellow Giambattista Valli gown.  Not loving the wintery makeup for such a summery dress.  But chick looked fabulous nonetheless.

Ms. Keys rocked the hot Sergio Rossi shoes to set off her pink David Meister strapless dress.  Loved the look.

These three ladies killed the red carpet.  Malika looked cute in her simple red dress, Lauren London rocked a French Connection dress with the some of the hottest Givenchy booties ever, and Cassie's Vivienne Westwood dress was surprisingly hot.  I just wish she would have added some of that spray on wrinkle-free Downy that only cost a dollar.

And um, Nelly.  Self-explanatory. Lots more of BET's best dressed and hot looks when you read the rest...

35th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards

 I damn near stopped posting about this here event after seeing the foolywangness that is Tyra Banks:

Whoever jacked Barbie's wig and made that ish into a lacefront and glued that mess to Tyra's head needs to be fired.  B*tch slapped...then fired again.  Me definitely no likey.  And the overly bronzed skin (which would have looked fabulous had it not been the same color as her hair damn near) is not helping.  Luckily for Tyra, she could rock a zebra print potato sack and look better than most chicks in the game.  But still, this look right here is no excuse.  None I say.  But congrats to her for copping the award for Outstanding Informative Talk Show.  {LOL at informative} More of Tyra smiling with her eyes and other YBF celebs on the red carpet when you read the rest...
