BET honored Lionel Richie with a Lifetime Achievement Award but flubbed a very important detail, Trey Songz gushes about Nicki Minaj, and Justin Bieber rushed to Floyd Mayweather’s kid’s side after they got in a car crash in Los Angeles.
- Robin Thicke’s apology tour made a stop at the BET Awards last night. Thicke opened up his performance by saying,”’I’d like to dedicate this song to my wife and say, ’I miss you, and I’m sorry.'” The performance ended with “PAULA” in big letters across the top of the stage and a photo of the ex-couple gazing into each others eyes. Still no comment from estranged wife, Paula Patton. [People]
- Last night, BET honored Lionel Richie with a Lifetime Achievement Award and surprise performances from John Legend and Yolanda Adams. Everything was going smoothly until Richie went on stage to accept his award and his name was spelled incorrectly on national television. D’oh! A little spell check goes a long way. [HuffPo]
- Trey Songz is not shy about his love for long-time friend, Nicki Minaj. Songz opened up about working with Nicki and how it’s been amazing to see her grow as an artist. He even hinted at a future video with Minaj for the song, “Touchin, Lovin” off of his new album, Trigga, which drops on Tuesday. Stream the album for free right now, right here. [MTV News]
- It must be nice to have Floyd Mayweather owe you one. Last night, Mayweather was on the phone with Justin Bieber at the BET Awards when he heard that three of his kids got into a really bad car accident. Bieber rushed to the scene to see if they were okay and took them straight to their dad, only to return back to the scene to tell police that the kids were safe with their father. He even played them some new music to make them feel better. Now that’s a stand up guy. [TMZ]
