    BET did not write the book on honoring celebrities; there are many different ways to put together a tribute and it doesn’t always have to be of a certain format. BET has no right to criticize after upsetting a lot of people with the way they tried to honor MJ at the 2009 BET Awards.

    • Mark111 May 29, 2016

      They had like 40 hours when MJ passed. So stop.

    • LmfaoHoe May 29, 2016

      First of all this really isn’t a race issue, cause I know tons of white ppl who didn’t like the f****** performance. Prince has a diverse fan base which all of different things races n s** did not like her performance. So you will deal with it.

      • JubJub May 29, 2016

        when was race mentioned tho???

      • Jay May 30, 2016

        Ohhhhhhh so now its not a “race thing”. Y’all something else.

    • Fancy BISH May 29, 2016

      All I know is BET better BRING IT. I don’t wanna see Trey Songz and Keyshia Cole’s momma Frankie up there giving a tribute lol…LAWD! Prince would be serving side eyes from Heaven chile!

      • TeamKeysh May 30, 2016

        They love to mention Keyshia even when the post has NOTHING to do with her ! Lol fans.

    • Real May 29, 2016

      Bet Gave Prince a Tribute while he was Alive. That’s the Most Important.

  2. Suicide Blonde May 29, 2016

    For me as a fan of Prince, all tributes are welcome, as long as the man get the respect and recognition he deserves, there was nothing wrong with Madonna’s tribute. She was condemned from the moment it was announced that she was going to pay tribute to him, not surprises. iIf BET can have a bigger name than Madonna to honor Prince then good for them, although I doubt Paul McCartney is up to that 😎

    • #JACKIE May 29, 2016

      The “big name” shouldn’t matter. Prince was all about TALENT, something Hagdonna barely has judging by the dreadful tribute.

      • Suicide Blonde May 29, 2016

        You didn’t knew Prince better than me, don’t go there. Madonna wasn’t obligated to do that, if a billionaire woman takes her time to honor a friend and colleague, then let’s her do it, she clearly felt the need to pay him respect, she admired and respected him and there’s nothing more respectful than a legend paying homage to another legend, regardless of Madonna’s level of talent, a big name like her honoring him carries more weight than a big voice like Beyoncé or any other artist of this generation doing so. Michael Jackson, Prince and Madonna were as much different as they were alike.

      • King Mark111 /.\ May 29, 2016

        billionaire woman, wait what about Janet?

      • OMG Logic!!! May 29, 2016

        You stan for C-Error though… Madonna is a vocal powerhouse compared to him.

    • Bella May 29, 2016

      Dear, the BET audience doesn’t care about big names, especially the ones you mentioned. We care about talent and I feel like they will honor Prince in a major way. He loved BET and they loved him too. He’s probably somewhere in the sky gagging at their effortless shade Kii.

      • Toerag May 29, 2016

        And what talent is that bcos last time I saw a bet award the good performers were sitting watching the mess on the stage and Janets only a billionaire cos she married a muso all the good performers are no lpnger relevant in this auto tune music industry

    • Coolness May 29, 2016

      Don’t try it. Sir Paul is significantly more talented than Madonna but even an appearance from him at the BET Awards would raise eyebrows. Who gives a f*** whether a “big name” artist gets to tribute Prince. I’m sure a line-up of lesser known but immensely talented musicians coupled with the artists Prince worked with and loved would do him justice better than your Queen croaking out Purple Rain on stage.

    • Seb May 29, 2016

      @Suicide
      What did you think of Madge’s tribute? i thought it was okay and classy unlike that Bowie tribute mess which turned into a circus act

  3. Mark111 May 29, 2016

    I personally would just like a quick video of the person’s career. I don’t know why people feel that they must be entertained during a tribute, it’s not for your entertainment, it supposed to take time to pay respect to the fallen. People won’t be happy with BETs effort as well because we live in a never good enough time now.

    • #JACKIE May 29, 2016

      BET has been killing ALL of their awards/honors shows over the past few years. I know for a fact that their Prince tribute will S*** all over Billboards. A tribute SHOULD be for entertainment because it’s honoring an ENTERTAINERS discography. Nobody wants to sit around all dreary and solemn.

      • King Mark111 /.\ May 29, 2016

        I didn’t say BET didn’t have great shows. And that’s true, it should be entertaining, but when shouldn’t act like AI judges as well. With that said, Granny sucked and it shouws that without 99 other distractions on stage, she’s the most basic artist of all time.

  4. Truth May 29, 2016

    BET acted unprofessional and out of line, Madonna is an iconic legend just as successful as the incredible Prince and they were friends till the end, if she wants to Tribute someone she actually knew then why not? it does not stop anyone else from doing the same, the internet seems to warrant a level of unprofessionalism nowadays, and the BET Michael Jackson tribute was AWFUL!!!!

    • #JACKIE May 29, 2016

      Didn’t MJ pass like a day before the BET Awards? They had to scramble at the last minute for a tribute. Y’all are not gonna sit here and act like BET hasn’t been shitting all over these other award shows performance and viewership wise. Don’t f****** do it. Madonna SUCKED and you’ll deal.

      • SMH May 29, 2016

        Exactly. Not to mention the BET Awards kicks all the awards shows butts in ratings every year.

  5. Bella May 29, 2016

    Madonnas tribute was as flat as her nasty pasty granny ass.

  6. Lake Erie May 29, 2016

    Well Madonna, you do wtf you want any ways. The general public didn’t give ya old ass permission to pay tribute to Prince but what you do instead? Who cares if they were friends. According to the blogs and headlines he was friends with everyone pretty much so whoppty dew…. … can’t wait for the BET awards. I know they’re going to turn up.

    • OMG Logic!!! May 29, 2016

      She didn’t permission from the general public. Prince was her friend not the general publics.

      • LmfaoHoe May 29, 2016

        Okay and so ?? Prince had tons of others friends far more talented than her that actually WORKED with him (yeah i know he worked with her too, but so what on what a two songs only)..got on stage and we’re blessed by his guidance. Once again, Prince’s band could’ve done the tribute.

      • Lake Erie May 29, 2016

        No one cares about her friendship and that comment you made defeats the purpose of her instagram post which is WHY I made mine!

        . Right @LmfaoHoe No one gives a f***! I’m pretty sure BET has something cooked up from other artist who also knew him and us (general public) will be happy to see.

  7. SMH May 29, 2016

    Madonna can sit her old white privilege a** right down. She and Billboard expected everyone to automatically love her tribute and kiss her a** in worship just because it’s her, when all they were after was press and ratings. And it backfired, damaging her white privileged ego that has allowed her to get away with all the crap she has pulled over the last 30 years. Sit the f*ck down Madonna.

    • OMG Logic!!! May 29, 2016

      GTFO with that BS.

    • Carlitos May 29, 2016

      I’m sure she’s unbothered. Lmao. While she’s worth almost a billion dollars, you’re still here writing meaningless comments about someone who will never know you, or to care. Bye, betch!

      • B May 29, 2016

        If Madonna was unbothered she wouldn’t have taken a week to respond. If she was really unbothered she wouldn’t have said a thing. A true Queen wouldn’t feel the need to address the haters a la Janet… Madonna is weak, always wanting attention, always clawing at new talent and trends, and always willing to compromise. The masses can have Madonna. Madonna is H&M, Janet is Chanel. Madonna fans throw numbers without considering artistic integrity. She has none.

  8. Julien May 29, 2016

    Let’s not act like BET hasn’t been nominating the same artists over and over again who won’t show up to their ceremony. They’re okay with tributes, sometimes going for celebrity over talent.

    • Carlitos May 29, 2016

      I see NO lies. Speaketh the truth, honey!

    • Truth(honey Adel is a has been like nicki) May 30, 2016

      They nominate talent love. So both of u GOTA HELL!!!😠😈

  9. k May 29, 2016

    i have no problem with madge tributing.

    • Truth(honey Adel is a has been like nicki) May 30, 2016

  10. © Centurion ::. May 29, 2016

    These tired old palaeozoic throwback høes shouldn’t be throwing shade. This also includes Mariah Carey, Cher, Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle.

    • Truth(honey Adel is a has been like nicki) May 30, 2016

      Bigot

  11. LmfaoHoe May 29, 2016

    First and foremost I love Madonna (90s era really) but in honesty no the performance was cringe worthy and Prince would had a certain shade reaction on his face. Madonna was not the right person to honor him, I’m not gonna dispute her being a legend n of course a “friend” but no this was not for her. Hell why they didn’t get the original singer who song Nothing Compares 2 you instead ? Also like I said Madonna did not have the vocals for this or any Prince song in his catalog. It’s like imagine if she wanted to honor Whitney…hell no lol her voice would be flat on such songs of Whitney n MJ included. Miguel, D Angelo, Maxwell, The Roots, Janelle, Pati, Chaka ect including his original band The Revolution would’ve been great CHOICES n Epic power that’s surely gonna be on BET. Ya sitting here blaming BET are we forgetting g whose running BET now. ☞VIACOM

  12. LmfaoHoe May 29, 2016

    Prince once said he gets annoyed when people say they’re inspired by him, but aren’t talented. Top of that feels he’s listening to some at a karaoke bar 🐸

  13. LmfaoHoe May 29, 2016

    Rihanna was the only black performer n she slayed that night too while everyone else…….well f*** it I’m always looking forward to the BET and Soul Train awards only shows that’ll give you some slayage. I’m need Beyonce to perform Formation have a b**** up n ready to salute lol.

    • OMG Logic!!! May 29, 2016

      Rihanna was basic. As was everyone else, for that matter.

    • Carlitos May 29, 2016

      WHAT? Demi was honestly the best performance of the night. Hands down. And wtf does their race have to do with it? You’re the reason evolution is at a standstill. Btw, no one looks forward to the BET awards. They’re practically the boot legged version of the Grammy awards.

  14. travesty May 29, 2016

    Madonna has so many qualities that made me love her right from the start just like prince they were both stand alone artists. i was so happy when i heard she was paying tribute because he legendary status matches prince perfectly. ill always respect madge simply because she came she conquered and shes still here B******!!!! Prince is a Proud Smiling Prince lookin down from heaven…Ms Ciccone Baby You Were Fabulous Honey XXXOOO (i wish my poor self had a bit of her money though lol i wanna dress stylish like her js)

  15. OMG Logic!!! May 29, 2016

    Who do the EBT Awards think they are? Maybe they should work a little bit more on being less racist before attempting to shade anyone.

    • Coolness May 29, 2016

      Spokej like a true White supremacist. How tf are BET racist? Your comments reek of the latter.

    • Carlitos May 29, 2016

      That network is incredibly racist. But wtf cares? No one is out there dying to get on that stage. I pity a fool. Lmao.

      • #JACKIE May 29, 2016

        How exactly is BET racist? For celebrating BLACK talent while the other shows celebrate our cultural contributions while ignoring US? Girl you and OMG Logic’s delusional asses can go sit on a cactus and bleed to death.

      • Seb May 29, 2016

        Loooool
        i live for your reads Jackie

      • Carlitos May 29, 2016

        So it’s not racist when a network only recognizes black talent, but when the Academy Awards don’t nominate a black artist, it’s considered racist? I mean, come tf on. Open your f****** eyes.

      • Carlitos May 29, 2016

        It would be great if you’d think of your own things to say and stop copying of mine. You’re pressed because you know I’m right. No one checks for the BET awards. That network is biased and racist. Get your s*** together, because your rebuttals are weak as f***.

      • LmfaoHoe May 29, 2016

        Do you not understand why BET was created in the first place ? Along with how many careers have had successful launches due to their platform please iight. It took MJ, Whitney, Prince and Janet to break thru white MTV to start showcasing black talent. Hell even David Bowie was against them oppressing black musicians.

      • SCALPING THOTS May 29, 2016

        GURL, OMG & THIS CARLITOS PERSON IS ONE AND THE SAME. DON’T BE FOOLED. BET HAS EMBRACED MANY ARTISTS OTHER THAN BLACK SINGERS & MUSICIANS. ADELE IS ACTUALLY NOMINATED MULTIPLE TIMES THIS YEAR. LADY GAGA IS A BET AWARD WINNER. EVERYONE FROM TEENA MARIE, TORI KELLY, ROBIN THICKE, EMINEM AND JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE HAS PERFORMED AT THE AWARD SHOW & THEY AREN’T BLACK. IT ABOUT TALENT, NOT RACE H0ES.

      • #JACKIE May 29, 2016

        Girl stfu BET was created when stations like MTV and VH1 refused to play our s***. BET is urban based, so they honor people who make URBAN music regardless of race. Sit!

  16. Carlitos May 29, 2016

    BET is whack and irrelevant. Wtf cares about their damn opinion and network anyways? No one’s checking for them. Girl, bye!

    • #JACKIE May 29, 2016

      No ones checking for them yet they have one of the most watched music award shows out there? Sit the f*** down!

      • Carlitos May 29, 2016

        Lmao. No they don’t. They average between 6-8 million each year. That’s one of the lowest. I just can’t with denial ass. Hahaha.

      • #JACKIE May 29, 2016

        They are on a cable network and they damn sure get higher ratings than the VMA’s. Imagine if it were shown on regular TV like the Billboard Awards and The Grammys. Sit!

    • B May 29, 2016

      Stfu, 8-9 million is especially high for a cable network. You’re f***** clouded. Check your damn self.

  19. Keith May 29, 2016

    If Madonna is so unbothered, WHY does she keep clapping back? She knows that performance was for crap, but her ego can’t take the lashing she’s receiving. I guess she shoulda known better….

    • LmfaoHoe May 29, 2016

      Exactly, like if your so unbothered you wouldn’t be responding back.

      • Carlitos May 29, 2016

        Clearly it’s gone over your head. She’s responding back not because she’s bothered, but because she can. She knows she’s the real deal. All of you pheasants trying to drag her down only makes her stronger. While she is doing her tribute to Price, y’all are on TGJ trying to act as if your unsolicited opinions count. 😂😂😂😂

  20. toeknee May 29, 2016

    plssss oldonna should sit her iron flat a s s down already. Her performance was beyond underwhelming & probably the worst of the night.
    I know BET will do a better tribute.

  21. Thando May 29, 2016

    Good god! The sexism, ageism being spewed out with such ease wow! Like literally MOST of the comments have some disgusting sexist statement. Absolutely disgusting.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 29, 2016

      That´s true.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 29, 2016

        LOL Look at all the retarded superficial people hating on people writing sane comments 🙂

  22. Usual Observer May 29, 2016

    Like someone has already pointed out, the BET Awards is pretty much the only exciting award show left. They rest of them have become boring snoozefests. EVERY award show that BET airs (Black Girls Rock, BET Honors, Soul Train Awards, BET Awards, etc) has been ON POINT here lately. Interestingly enough, the BET awards is the only award show I’m looking forward to. The other sh*t is dry and boring. No shade. And, it’s not about race but it is what it is. And, Madonna… Girl… Even you diehard fans know you are no vocalist. You can’t be mad at BET for that lol.

  23. JOHNVIDAL May 29, 2016

    BET will do a better tribute musically no doubt. I mean… yeah, and you know it 🙂
    That said, Celine Dion is everything Taylor Swift would love to be: an honest and humble person that really supports and enjoys everybody, not in a fake way, but in an honest way.
    Madonna: an amazing career. Her last two-three albums have not been cutting it but her previous 4 (from 1998 to 2005) were four phenomenal albums back to back, sooo difficult to do at the age she realeased them. Plus all her previous long and successful career and albums too. She´s a different type of artist. Not everybody is a “true” musician who slays the stage effortlessly on talent for singing or playing instruments alone.In a way Mariah carey is like that too, their biggest strength is their music and albums. Something which is also VERY important and impressive (well mariah has that incredible voice Madonna doesn´t have but you know what I mean). Not everybody is a Prince, Michael, Tina Turner or Bruce Springsteen. But they are also great musicians and talented in their own ways. That´s why I don´t like to look down on Madonna (unless when it is necessary, for example when some crazy stan says she´s more raw talented than Gaga, which is just not the case).
    What it is absolutely true is taht all of them are so above Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Mylie and all the crap out there now.

    • RihNavy May 29, 2016

      Shut your old bitter ass UP! Gah you’re annoying.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 29, 2016

        If you could give any reasonable argument then maybe you could be taken half seriously 🙂 At the end of the day you stan for Rihanna judging by your user name. Says it all anyway. You don´t like truths it´s your problem.

  24. Thando May 29, 2016

    No amount of sexism, ageism or anti-woman bigotry you use will ever erase the musical legacy of these ALBUMS: True Blue, Like A Virgin, The Immaculate Collection, Bedtime Stories, Ray of Light, Music, Confessions on the Dancefloor. They will outlive time itself.

  25. Cinnamon Girl May 29, 2016

    It’s funny how folks want to clown Madonna when she actually dated Prince and knew him personally. He even flew her to his home and performed a private concert just for her last October. These folks criticizing her need to have a seat. Like they could’ve done any better

    Someone of her caliber shouldn’t have even responded. Like a bunch of children. That was weeks ago. Why are we now trying to start a war. Yes the tribute was awful, but you give them power by acting but hurt about it.

    NET Awards are great because it caters to Black Music and not only that, but got something for the new kids, the throw back gen and the old skool. So the whole family are entertained. Vs AMA and Billboard (both are th same in my book) are based off of popular music and artist. Those shows how as much water as Teen Choice and Nick Kids. Grammys are supposed to represent ALL music and the best. But the past few years, they put these pop stars on the stage to get viewers. People cried that they had pop stars perform, but sent them home empty handed. Now artist like Wacklemore are winning. That’s why Grammys are crap to me now.
    .
    The deal with the Oscars was that this year they went out their way to NOT nom Black actors. Even when they starred and directed the films that were nom. But again, these shows are just that, shows. Don’t like? Don’t tune in. Oscars ratings were low, keep it up and they will change.
    .
    One last thing. Today, award shows are not needed. Just 15 years ago, one these artist were on an award show, unless you taped it, it was never seen again. It was a be there or never see it again thing. Now we don’t even have to tune it, we can find what we WANT to see online and call it a day. Like Kanye said, why pick 5 of the best of that year, put them in a category and pick one, making the other 4 feel like losers. But the other 4 had a great year too. They’re albums were great as well. The whole structure of these shows are poison. That’s why we pit artist against each other WAY more then ever.

  34. King Mark111 /.\ May 29, 2016

    Plus Latinos have their own damn Grammys, shows and chennels. No one cries rascism at them. Only when Blacks do US because we’re the only other group THEY focus on.

    • LmfaoHoe May 29, 2016

      Thank you when that whole Oscar issue started I said f*** it let’s make our own s***. I’m done and never was looking for whites acceptance f*** it let’s continue doing our own thing as we have. Their obsession with us is craxy.

      • Jackson Five Nostrils (Tyler) May 29, 2016

        Agreed! One step at a time though. Its all about trial and error. People fail to realize that African Americans have been in America too long to separate themselves for from (white) America. The same people that built the country are the same people at the bottom. Colorism and capitalism is destroying the world but it seem like America is the biggest victim.

    • Talent > May 29, 2016

      Latinos have several channels also. They don’t really try to fit in with white America, but I’m sure if a white girl came out and went diamond off of a salsa-based album they would be pissed lol.

    If yall think these people are about to listen to black folk yall are mistaken lol its no use. people love what black people do but not when black people do it. It’s annoying to see black people turn their backs on awards that got a lot of artists where they are just to complain when grammy or Oscars don’t acknowledge us.

    • Lake Erie May 29, 2016

      Do you mean how like a lot of them don’t show up to the BET Awards anymore?

      • Danzou May 29, 2016

        @lake yeah that’s exactly what I mean it’s crazy. They need to understand that white people are NEVER impressed by us. Not even light skin people are good enough cuz they’re still n****** to the rest of the world when it comes down to it. That’s why tinashe never popped off.

      • Lake Erie May 29, 2016

        Yes! I agree! It’s not that many of us as it is lol. Support. I’ve watched so many black artist spit out the history of so many OTHER Artist like Elton John, Beatles, hell Elvis and even Micheal Botton, Shania Twain, etc and there is NOTHING Wrong with that at all. But when I saw that incident at the Grammy’s when Kelly Clarkson asked who was that guy and I’d like to work with him etc, I was like WOW. She didn’t know who Miguel was and Miguel was POPPING when he first came out. So that, I was like hmmmm. And it’s not like shes older sooo. But I like kelly Clarkson but thats a perfect example of what you said: “they love what we do” but that’s it lol. Then they give our most popular black artist awards as a ” yeah we didn’t forget about yal” I sometimes really don’t like to speak to much on stuff like this because I don’t want it to seem like blacks think any and everything said, done etc is racist I mean what else can you say or do when its right there? Like in your face? Ignore it? Smh. Idk.

        Lake; when I saw all of those flat voiced white boys trying to sing R&B music on the BMA’s I damn near threw up.

      • Lake Erie May 29, 2016

        @Talent > Yes! Lol. It’s deep.

  37. Talent > May 29, 2016

    The thing I like about BET and their audience is that they’ll support you throughout your career not just when you’re hot. Whites will throw you away when you’re no good to them (see Gaga, Jessica Simpson and other fad artists that escape my mind right now). Brandy, Ledisi, Jill Scott, Jazmine Sullivan and the likes are paid dust by the mainstream but they always book a BET stage.

    • Lake Erie May 29, 2016

      Truth!

    • Danzou May 29, 2016

      I thought that SAME thing a long time ago. White people are so disloyal and money hungry and they don’t have any sense of culture to keep them grounded like black people do. Mary j Mc lite and all those other hip hop and rnb legends will ALWAYS be remembered by us blacks which is why bet will book them. The grammy won’t book old artists because THEY HAVE NO CULTURE. Black people will always remember the impact of big topaz
      Tupac brandy Monica Mariah so on and so forth.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 30, 2016

      Gaga keeps being booked for absolutely every important event (way more important than BET) despite everything. She is that talented and they know it. So what you´re saying is not totally true.

  38. Sam May 29, 2016

    So Madonnas wearing a jacket that Prince gave her several decades ago.
    I have heifers that I don’t talk to who still have clothing of mine and sometimes them holding on to my garments are the reason that we don’t talk.

  39. Allen Saint James May 29, 2016

    It’s not cool for either blacks nor whites to make things about skin color or race. The only qualifications for paying respect to a loved one is over and respect. You don’t have to be a fan of Madonna’s to give her just a little respect for her continued creativity. What she lacks in vocal range she’s more than made up for with constant creativity and with all her ambition changed the way the world looks at lot of things. Was it her best performance? No. Was her heart in the right place? Yes. It’s fair to say Madonna was a better friend to Prince than anyone of us talking all the bull. She was saying goodbye to a friend (friends have us and downs). We could easily respect the fact that she tried to be respectful.

    • Danzou May 29, 2016

      Ooh s*** the F*** UP! I hate when people blatantly ignore race lol should it matter? No. But it does and it’s because of white people that it matters SO much. So cut the s***. If prince was alive he would’ve been DISAPPOINTED.

  40. Danzou May 29, 2016

    White people have no sense of culture they do nothing but suck up everyone else’s culture. After time goes on people look back at the years and realize the type of s*** white people do. That’s why we don’t want white people singing our music or rapping our music because it’s only rare cases like Jojo or Eminem where white people genuinely love the craft and culture but Justin Bieber for example is clearly not in the culture. His team is giving him that music.

  41. Danzou May 29, 2016

    Black people only care for talent. Period. You don’t even always have to sound the best just have the soul the heart and the spirit which white people rarely have when it comes to the actual culture of it all. Black people are loyal to the artists that got us through hard times and stuff like that.
