BET Awards: The Good, The Bad and Just Plain Stupid

<span class=

The BET Awards took place on Sunday at the Shrine Auditorium located in Los Angeles, California. Host Kevin Hart kicked off the show with what he does best…hilarious jokes. He ragged on celebrities including Sean “Diddy” Combs, Busta Rhymes and Trey Songz about their nicknames, attire and lack of clothing onstage. Throughout the show, Hart kept viewers entertained with his comedic flair. Hart’s ultimate highlight of the night was “The Real Househusbands of Hollywood” skit. The act included Nelly, Nick Cannon, Anthony Anderson, Jermaine Dupri, Tami Roman and of course, Hart himself. It was not only funny but many viewers including myself felt that the skit would be a huge hit if it actually became a real show. Though Hart impressed many with his role as host, many other aspects of the show fell flat.

RHOH: Part 1

RHOH: Part 2

RHOH: Part 3

For instance, the majority of the performances were forgettable and quite dull. It seemed as if the BET Awards should have been considered a hip hop concert instead of an actual award show. I cannot even count how many times I saw Lil’ Wayne, DJ Khaled and Rick Ross onstage. To make matters worse, the artist’s playback track was much louder than the actual artist. During a performance segment of a show, doesn’t it seem more fitting to have an instrumental version of a song? That way the audience can hear the performer clearly without any distraction. In my opinion, the only musical acts that were successful were Chris Brown and Kelly Rowland. Brown is a natural entertainer with his jaw dropping choreography and catchy lyrics. On the other hand, Rowland has had a different path. In the past, she has struggled with finding her ideal sound but her hit single “Motivation” has allowed her the opportunity to actually showcase her full potential. Her performance was classy and made viewers take notice. However, I personally could have done without her opening her shirt and the Trey Songz remix segment of her act. It made me a tad uncomfortable.

The weirdest part of the night took place when the “Viewers’ Choice Award” winner was announced. As most of you may already know, BET offers a contest for an individual to present the award onstage with “106 & Park” hosts Terrence J and Rosci. This year the lucky winner was Tiffany Greene. Greene originally announced that Chris Brown had won the award after looking at the media tablet all winners of the night were announced on. Next, came the strange and awkward part. She then took notice of the teleprompter and stated that the actual winner was Rihanna. Greene looked noticeably shaken due to the error but Terrence J attempted to comfort her. Drake took the stage accepting the award in place of the absent Rihanna. He appeared uncomfortable as well. However, before the show actually ended, Kevin Hart ended the confusion by stating that Chris Brown was the actual winner after all. Tiffany Greene took to Twitter claiming that BET was to blame for the whole situation and that the network purposely created a publicity stunt. [Ed. Note: Tweet has since been deleted and apologized for.]

On Monday,
BET executive Stephen G. Hill apologized and took responsibility for the mishap. Was BET intentionally attempting to spark controversy and media frenzy? Was it supposed to mimic the Kanye West/Taylor Swift fiasco from the 2009 MTV Music Awards? After all, we all know Chris Brown and Rihanna have had a pretty heated and some would say violent past. Everyone knows that both of the singers’ names being mentioned at the same time would make people talk. Overall, I was not wowed by the BET Awards this year. My hope is that next year it will be much better. That way, I can have more compliments than criticisms.

Kobe Plays NBA 2k12 *NBA 2k12 Preview* (Small Miami Heat Diss)

Here the Playstation 3 "Move" version of 2k12 is played. (Compared to the Wii, and XBOX 360 "Kinect") Not only does Kobe try out the 2k12 video game, but he takes a shot at the Miami Heat as well. One of the game's developers played against Kobe using the Miami Heat. As his opponent bragged saying "its because its the Heat," Kobe fires back saying.."The Heat aint got 5 of those things tho"!!!! As a Lakers fan, I laughed.

PS: this was taken during the regular season.

Kobe shot at the Heat is (2:39) into the video.

Toy Story 4?

But wait...I thought that was a wrap.

Here's a lesson: nothing is a wrap in Hollywood...if it's raking in the green.

Toy Story 3 was clearly a fan favorite among the 2010 film releases, and, in addition to its high critical praise, the movie also grossed over $1 billion worldwide.

Tom Hanks told BBC...that mean a 4th installment. It only makes $ense.

The writers did a phenomenal job with Toy Story 3. The film brought closer to audiences who may have not even been familiar with its preceding renditions. Although no release date has been announced,
Cars 2 is in heavy rotation and skyrocketing in the box I type this...and a new short film starring the classic Toys, entitled Hawaiian Vacation, serves as a short, to play before Cars 2.

In related news, look for sequels to Monsters Inc. and The Incredibles. Those are also in the works! Word to Pixar. They don't sleep over there.

KICK GAME: AIR JORDAN XI (Concord) to Release in 2011?

While some of us are talking about the Air Jordan 12 release NEXT year...I'm gonna talk about arguably the GREATEST Air Jordan sneaker ever releasing THIS year...THE AIR JORDAN XI (CONCORD).
The Air Jordan XI was originally released in 1995. Jordan only wore the Concords a few times because he was fined $5,000 each time he wore the shoe! The fines were due to the white and black coloring, and the Bulls team sneaker color was black. This is one of the most popular basketball shoes of all time! Also, the first basketball sneaker to feature patent leather!

The Air Jordan XI is scheduled to be released this holiday season; and will go EXTREMELY fast! No set release date is available, but most likely Right before Christmas. Jordan Brand always has a great release for the holidays and the XI is the one to look for this year!

The Air Jordan V will be released in an "Olympic" colorway. The shoe features a white leather upper, with a touch of patent leather as well. The midsole is Navy Blue with Varsity Red accents, along with the clear sole!

This shoe is set to release on July 2nd, 2011. Maybe the colorway and the July 4th date have something to do with the release date. How many of you will have the Jordan 5 "Olympic" on your feet watching Fireworks? Good Luck


On June 22nd I posted news of a possible release of the Ray Allen PE of the Jordan XIII. I also promised to get back to you guys with the release info if I came across some. WELL I CAME THROUGH, but unfortunately you still may not be able to get a pair unless you spend a pretty penny!

Sources reveal that the Air Jordan XIII Ray Allen PE will release on July 16th, but ONLY at the Boston House of Hoops! This also means the shoe is going to be extremely limited! So good luck!

Lil Wayne "Dear Anne"

Lil Wayne has stated that he does NOT like this song. He said he doesn't like his delivery and that he didn't accomplish what he wanted to with the song. The song was suppose be on the Carter III but didn't make the cut. The public is just now getting a glimpse of the song because it leaked, now their is talk about it making the cut for the Carter IV. But Wayne doesn't like it, he said the Young Money camp loves the song and tells him he's trippin! Wayne says he'll possibly put it on the Carter IV depending on the buzz he gets from the public. So what do yal think, Hot or Not?

"R.I.P. SneakerHeadz" by @Myke_Kewl

Before we get into the
kewler piece…

Growing up, me owning the latest pair of Jordan's/Penny's/
Nikes was a rarity...for two very specific reasons: partially because my parents thought they were too expensive a purchase...especially for an adolescent who would eventually (physically and possibly mentally) grow out of them. And the second half to that deprivation equation, is originality. They could care less Jordan had his own commercials, or that he was arguably "the greatest player" to ever touch a basketball. My parents wanted to instill original behavior at a very early age, an age where having that sense of originality could be dangerous for your social career. Needless to say, I wanted the kicks bad, but that didn't matter. They didn't care. They didn't care the whole school may have had them. They didn't care that coming to school without them, sometimes meant, you were NOT "cool" that day. They damn sure didn't care that the girlies would have loved me more if had these on!

Granted, there were some gems they purchased for me, because I either begged for them enough and they wanted to shut me up OR they thought the design may have been nice themselves...and possibly worthy of the $100 bill.

All that being said, in honor of @
Myke_Kewl's piece below, I'd like to take this space to thank my parents for that. Your actions and hard nose morals, have produced a stone cold WINNER...a winner with a major sneaker addiction.

R.I.P to Sneaker Heads…

Is it just me or is everyone a
sneakerhead now?

With retailers back in full stock of classics it is becoming easy to portray a “
sneakerhead." The craziest part about this sneaker epidemic, this wave, around is these people call themselves sneakerheadz?

At one point the term “sneakerhead” was given, not taken. A sneakerhead was described by funds or a specific shoe; it was described by the most ridiculous & absurd measure taken to obtain a shoe. I believe the real “sneakerheadz” are gone. Now we have the nemesis of those sneaker days coming back for revenge with deadstock bs. For example, reject foams with super soles that don’t turn yellow, or AJ3 with a tainted gloss & a lite-weight frame. Something isn’t quite the same about the experience. Now sneakerheads have become just that, giving sneakers-head. Everybody has a collection or has a new found passion for shoes, some of us always had the passion but couldn’t afford it, due to funds or whatever the case may be, I feel for you. Because the experience of not having the money maybe cleaning a sidewalk or two was the experience of the beloved sneakerhead, the feeling of doing whatever to obtain the shoes was legendary over the shoes.

Fuck what shoe it was; it was the shoe you worked hard obtain. Now I see a lot of copycats looking to obtain because of what others tell them the shoe is, no personal taste, story or depiction just a robot spat out version of their love for that shoe almost a
Manchurian candidate for sneakers. Then at the end, they'll tell you that they are “sneakerheadz." It's funny because now we live in a time where everything has become generic & the time of originality is dying.

Anything you want to be or learn is on the web, if you wanted a guideline to being this “sneakerhead” I’m pretty sure nicekicks has one. Being a shoe-collector has become mainstream and has lost value to the ones who have really done it & or do it. The sneakerheadz are now going back to that good old saying: "Quality over Quantity." Everything can’t be quality; it just doesn’t work like that. So now very few are back to quality. Let’s thank those who gave the sneakers-head & continue to walk around with a sneaker facial to feel cool. Remember “Quality over Quantity” the quality of the shoe depends on you not them.

Look out for
