The 2012 BET Awards were quite the star-studded, with performers like Beyonce, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Usher, Nicki Minaj and many more filling the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Photographers captured some of hip-hop and R&B’s hottest artists mingling in the audience, hanging out backstage, or performing for viewers all over the nation at the 2012 BET Awards.
It’s hard to tell who the 2012 BET Awards winners will be, but Beyonce and Kanye West are the frontrunners for nominations, and almost immediately, Yeezy picked up his first award for the evening. After an energy-packed performance of ‘Mercy’ and ‘Cold,’ West and Jay-Z (who surprised him during the acceptance speech, coming out from backstage) took home the 2012 BET Award award for Best Group.
Hip-hop’s hottest stars stepped out tonight (July 1) at the 2012 BET Awards, posing for red carpet pictures prior to the show. Rhyme slingers like Big Sean, A$AP Rocky, Rick Ross and R&B hit makers like Elle Varner plus many more arrived at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Calif., for the big night in rap, R&B and hip-hop music.
While there are a bunch of new music releases for July 2012, there is one that really stands out in the world of pop music — Chris Brown‘s ‘Fortune.’ His highly-anticipated follow-up to his Grammy-winning LP ‘F.A.M.E.’ has been receiving hype for months now, and was even pushed back from May to a July release. Thankfully, Breezy will finally drop ‘Fortune’ on July 3. Turn up the music!
It’s no secret that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, mother and father to Dem Babies, are really just kids at heart. Both of the entertainers cherish one another’s playful attitudes (did you see their Halloween costumes last year?!), so it’s really no surprise that Carey and Cannon have teamed up for a family-friendly project that both parents and kids can enjoy.
One Direction aren’t known for their rapping skills, but that doesn’t mean the boys can’t spit a few verses … As long as these verses are from ’90s sitcom theme songs. During a visit to NovaFM in Australia, the five guys from One Direction rapped the entire opening theme from Will Smith‘s smash television show ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.’
While it’s absolutely insane to label Rihanna as overweight at any point in her career, the ‘Where Have You Been’ songstress was noticeably thicker (her dad even approached her about it) when she paraded around in a bikini on Kadooment Day in Barbados last August. As of late, Rihanna has been showing off a much thinner and toned figure, and it has a lot of people scratching their heads as to what her dieting secret is.
Rihanna is currently overseas in the U.K., and as always, the ‘Birthday Cake’ songstress has been keeping her loyal Twitter followers updated on her every move. Today (Feb. 27), RiRi was rehearsing for her appearance on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show,’ and yesterday she was getting sexified at her cover shoot for the British version of Esquire magazine.
After weeks of anticipation, Beyonce and Jay-Z have finally unveiled the first pictures of their daughter Blue Ivy. Instead of trying to make money off of the snapshots of their baby girl, who was born on Jan. 7, 2012, the couple decided to share the photos on Jay-Z’s Life and Times website so that all of their fans can get in on the joyous occasion!
When it comes to being sexy, there are few stars in modern pop culture who have the look and persona down quite like Rihanna. So, it shouldn’t come as a shocker that the edgy ‘S&M’ songstress admires the ultimate sex icon — Ms. Marilyn Monroe. In fact, Rihanna loves Marilyn so much, she wants to look at her beautiful image every day.
