Debra Lee Need To Be Fired!

I should've known better.I could use several words to describe the BET awards show, but i decided to keep it simple The word i have chosen is HORRIBLE. It was totally embarrassing. The artist of today are talentless, unlearned and disrespectful. And we say this our future? God help us....On Sunday night, BET held their annual BET Awards show what a mess of a show. Ever since Michael Jackson's unexpected death last Thursday, the entertainment network had been scrambling to find a way to honor the legendary singer. Producers were quoted as saying the show would be re-tooled to pay proper homage to the "King of Pop."

The tributes to Jackson felt thrown together--montages of Jackson's career were arbitrarily intertwined throughout the telecast while artists shared their memories of Jackson as the show cut to a commercial. Despite the minimal effort, the show was too often void of talent and class.

It's amazing to think with as many artists as were present on Sunday's award show, that there weren't more standout moments that could rightfully pay tribute to Michael Jackson. That's certainly an indictment of the modern age of music, but it also showcases the genius of the "King of Pop." Though he is gone--and hasn't made a wildly popular album in almost two decades--his talent still outshines any artist working today.

  1. Hello Ann:
    Though we differ in musical taste, I thoroughly agree, based on what my friends were twittering and facebooking alone. Simply put, the BET Awards has been reduced to a straight coon fest (pardon the term) where modern day minstrel sell our people, our culture and our God for a few crumbs at Pharoah's table.


    I am so happy I did not watch that nonsense. MJ is rolling over in his grave, as the saying goes. I don't think I could have bared to watch such idiocy.

  2. LA,

    Regretfully, I don't think he would be rolling in his-still-needing-to-be-dug grave as he relished in the positive attention he got from his peers.

    The lunacy was waaaaaaay over the top though. I think overall it was a nice production job, but wow, who knew you could cram so much mess in one show?

    Evidently BET set a new standard for that one.

    "Coon fest?" Nice.

    Peace,

  3. I agree-I did not even attempt to watch the show because I already knew that I would be disappointed! I was talking to friends yesterday when we were talking about the recent deaths of unreplacable people and their talents being gone forever! These trailblazers are dying and their is no one to take their mantles and continue on!

  4. Horrible is a tame describtion of this circus act gone berzerk, niggerism at its worst. Debra Lee is a plantation hired hand, and should know better!

  5. "Debra Lee is a plantation hired hand, and should know better!"


    Lincoln, you just answer your question -- Debra Lee is a hired plantation overseer. Debra Lee was placed into her position specifically she wouldn't challenge the pervasive self-destruction BET has promoted since its inception, long before Bob Johnson completely sold his soul (and his company) to Viacom/MTV.

  6. For the past 5+ years, I very seldom turn on BET. And last night, I felt was a perfect time to give them a shot at redeeming themselves with me. BIG MISTAKE

    Coon-fest is right.

    I do believe they had good intentions when they decided to change the show to honor Michael Jackson, but the shallowness of the show proved my point on why we don’t watch BET. WE, as the chosen people, center our videos around the 5 Cs: crotch, cribs, cash, cars, clothes. We don’t use our imagination to broaden our horizon to rap, sing, and speak about anything else. And if you look at the music that Micael Jackson performed over his lifetime, it covered a larger area; he made people aware of what was going on around the world. He shed light on the horrors that still go on outside our 4 walls. Out of the entire artists that was in the house last night, only 2 received a life-time achievement award for giving back” (Wyclef and Alicia Keyes). Why is that?

    I was glad to see the O’jays (even though Eddie cursed), New Edition, the doctors, the scholarship recipients, bring some positive to the show. But they were only allowed a sum of 10 minutes. Why is that?

    But when you make it okay for baby-mama’s, messy housewives, and crackheads the spotlight of the night…okay, that’s a whole different blog.
    TAFN!

  7. Why didn’t they just end it with the OJAYs tribute and Janet Jackson accepting condolences, tribute and memoriam to her brother, that would have been fitting, instead they parade those little girls on stage with the misogynists!

  8. I agree! But until that day, we have that unaired episode of the Boondocks that made her out to be the queen of evil.

  9. I normally would not have watched the award show but since so much emphasis was put on a tribute I tuned in. I had hoped that black entertainment television would step up and bring their A game. Boy was I wrong!!! As I sat and watch all the buffoonery with tears in my eyes thinking about how hard Michael Jackson worked to craft his art to only be made a mockery of. Most of those non talented people would have never had the opportunity if it were not for him. This was not a tribute it was more like a roast. I think it was a total disrespect to Michael Jackson and his family who every time they took the stage did it with style and grace. I was never a fan of the recent BET and after last night I will never watch that channel again. Michael Jackson deserve so much better and I pray that someone will give him the proper tribute fitting for the King Of Pop.

  10. It's a shame. I am old enough to remember when entertainers did not have the luxury of video cams and teleprompters. Yet, they could come together and make great magic at the drop of a hat. With all the rich material Michael left to work with, it makes no sense that these "professionals" couldn't do better. Too many are spoiled and undisciplined. There are no opportunities where they learn to work together. It's all about self only. They don't study their craft or it's masters. Michael did always. He studied Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly, Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and on and on. He studied and worked hard. These new people think they invented everything and have nothing to learn. And it shows.

  11. All I hear concurs with your post. Our music has sunk so low...we can do so much better.

  12. Five years ago BET promised that their news show would return.....Still waiting. This network is embarrassing. It is the greatest organ for raising the consciousness of Black America and they fail miserably.
    Their award shows in too many cases lack any decorum befitting the work of the "artists" they intend to laud. Sad soooo soooo sad.
