If you missed the Soul Train Awards this year, hosted by Ms. Erykah Badu… Then you might want to find a place to watch it again. During her opening skits, she makes hilarious jokes and puns to get things started. However the biggest shot went out when she SHADED female artist, Iggy Azalea. (Whoops was the shade too?)Iggy has been silent thus far, as she has been laying low post her T.I. drama. We think she knows whats best for the business. Take a look at the clip below
We know that’s right! You better preach that Baduism! The REAL question is… Who else needs to be shot at? What other artist are out here claiming to be rappers and are far from what a real rapper is? Iggy is just the bare tip of the iceberg. Let us know who you think should go on the “Shots Fired” List today.
Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliot and Da Brat are set to reunite at the 2014 Soul Train Awards,is set to record on November 5 and air November 30. The trio are going to perform their 90s hit and pay homage to Kool & The Gang.
Kool & The Gang were the originators in 1978 with “Ladies Night”. In 1997, the track was remade by Lil’ Kim, Missy, Da Brat, Angie Martinez and the missed Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez. The 2014 Soul Train Awards will air on the Centric Network.
The performances weren’t the only highlight of the night. The red carpet revealed news about many different upcoming projects. Like the return of the former Bad Boy platinum girl group Danity Kane! Aubrey, Andrea, Shannon and Dawn… The girls announced their return. However… D Woods comments weren’t given but the 5 were spotted chatting it up at The Ivy with the paparazzi… I hope she’s back with them because it won’t be the same. Good luck ladies! We’ll be juicing.
Last night MTV had Brooklyn Barclays Center on fire as your favorite celebrities like Kanye West and Katy Perry hit the stage. But… the 2013 VMAs were stolen by former boy band sensations *NSYNC! After 11 years the group reunited on the stage during Justin Timberlake‘s Vanguard Performance. The boy band dismembered in 2001 and Justin went solo in 2002 and premiered at the 2002 VMAS! For you music lovers… Justin sampled some of Hov’s hits during his medley performance. JT said ” He still runs this BITCH!”. Named the President of Pop… He tears the house down. Check out the awesome set click below if you didn’t have a chance to catch it.
Others to hit the stage included Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz during a collabo performance with Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus. Th performance was a little much….. ok it was A LOT. Miley Cyrus caught herself turning up and out on the stage and blurred some lines with Robin Thicke as she sported a furry animal one piece and he rocked Beetlejuice’s suit… Click below to see the ratchness.
Robin Thicke & Miley Cyrus
Yeah… that pretty much wraps it up. Rihanna and Drake‘s faces were not amused. Haha. Miley needs a timeout! The level of thirst to twerk is ridiculous. There was a lot of politically incorrect things going on last night… The VMAs were overall a job well done and the Barclays was a great choice. Glad that NYC has the show back in town. 2 thumbs up!!!
