Fans Outraged & Mary J. Blige Sounds Off About Bey’ & Jay Losing BET Award To Cardi B
After watching the BET Awards last night (or as much as I could stomach of it), there were two things that were re-affirmed for me: (1) The award show itself is still produced with great quality; (2) BUT most of the new talent presented on the show has taken an all time dive -or better yet- a plummet to the depths of the earth.
It’s no secret that a large portion of today’s ‘mainstream’ music tends to oftentimes sound like hot garbage that can destroy our kids’ brain cells by the millisecond. It’s also no secret that there are still some very talented artists out there who are being recognized for their work as well…thankfully.
That brings us to the latest debate and controversy regarding newcomer rapper, Cardi B, versus Jay Z, Beyoncé, and several other artists. Mary J. Blige had a lil’ somethin’ to say about this too, but we’ll get to that, as well as her epic performance, in a sec.’…
But First…Why Fans Are Pissed Off…
In case y’all haven’t heard, Cardi B won the ‘Album of the Year’ BET Award for her debut album, “Invasion of Privacy.” Nominated in that same category were Meek Mill’s “Championship,” Travis Scott’s “Astroworld,” Ella Mai’s self-titled album, and Jay Z & Beyonce’s “Everything Is Love” album.
All of the aforementioned artists are arguably more seasoned artists than Cardi B, and also had major hits off of their nominated albums. Thus, the reason why many fans are hella pissed off with BET for granting the top spot to Cardi B.
PAYOLAAA .. That Should Have Been Jay & Bee Award
