Actually what drew me to the broadcast was the Fugees. For my money the performance was rather lackluster. I really wasn't that surprised because my man had warned me the night before that the best part of the performance was Pras. Ouch! And Lauryn's voice was kind of off too yikes!
And if you were following me back in November last year you would have seen in these said same pages my reasons why the Fugees should just let it die and not try to go the reunion route. 'Put down the microphone ha'.
Actually during this performance what really grabbed me was Lauryn. You know I got to take time out to make fun of the patron saint of the poetry reciting, incense burning, natural hair, headwrap and slipper wearing so called righteous sistas who hang out at spoken words events. Well I'll be damned if the patron saint wasn't rocking a old school wig for her performance. What we don't see her for like 4 years and she comes back looking like a lost member of the supremes or was that one of the wigs she stashed from the Doo Wop video? Whatever it was I just found it delightful for some strange reason. Yea I hate on Miss Hill so what?
As for the rest of the show what can I say:
Ciara was humping a car again. Cant take credit for that line I got it from the Brutha Code a while back and everytime I see her dance on that car that line pops into my head.
Destiny's Child gave lap dances to some men on stage. I think Terrence Howard was getting a tad bit aroused by all that Beyonce badunkadunk rubbing up on him. Oh my! Kelly gave a lap dance to Nelly and Michelle gave a lap dance to Magic Johnson. Actually speaking of Magic Johnson I've always wanted to say this after seeing him on TV. The dude is built like a wall. I mean how many bolts of cloth do they use to create one of his suits? If Nike was making him a suit they'd probably use their whole pool of child labor to get that suit made on time.
Remy Ma did a presentation with Fat Joe. I think she has decided to fill that apparently ever so desirable niche of most scantily clad female rapper left vacant by the disappearance of Lil Kim and Foxxy Brown. Its a pity too cause homegirl can actually rap.
John Legend what can I say, let me just put it out there as sensitively as I can. There is something questionable about the way homeboy looks. I'm not saying he is or he isn't I'm just saying there's something about homeboy. Read whatever you want into that.
Tom Cruise was there with his annoying smile.
The front rows of the audience were full of unknowns and wannabes. Couldn't they get A list celebs to come to the show or did they have ticket giveaways for the loudest members on 106 and park? I mean its pretty sad when Trina is like in Row 25 and a bunch of people who evoke a 'who the hell is that?' response are crowding the front. At least last year the Wayan Brothers were all up in the front getting their vibe on but this year its like they got some chicks from Spring Bling and made them celebs for a day.
Mary J needs a proper hairstyle but her duet with Game was tight.
Missy needs to stop chewing gum in public all the damn time. It just looks lawless.
Jada ended up looking 'iight during the show but when she came out with Will at the beginning what the hell was she wearing. Looked like she was trying to become a female member of the old school 1980s version of the Furious Five. Homegirl had me like the Liks all I could say was Damnn! and not in a good way.
Anyway I've bashed enough, this is what happens when you cant think of anything good to write.
