Madonna Blows Tribute to Prince at BBMAs & BET Immediately Throws #SHADE!

Millions were glued to their televisions last night for 2016’s Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs). Celebrities, fashion, glitz, glamour, and most of all music dominated the night. The show was chalked full of some amazing performances by The Weeknd (Who now has more wins than any artist in BBMA history!), Pink, Rihanna, and Celine Dion. The latter two truly stole the show with their vocals! However, the most anticipated performance of the night was set to be Madonna’s tribute to the late, great, and legendary artist, Prince. Needless to say her performance was highly criticized. Check it out below.

Right…Madonna and Stevie Wonder are both legends, but they are not the best choice to deliver a tribute to Prince. This man was vivacious! A real slayer of the stage, where he was like a knight with sword, killing the audience with his guitar! Nothing Compares To You should have been replaced with something more upbeat. We should be celebrating this man’s life and closed out with Purple Rain. Honestly, an artist like The Weeknd or Beyonce would have done this tribute proper.


Madonna’s performance was rather boring and rather underwhelming. The purple motif and costumes were on fire though. We are not throwing shade, however, we are saying that BET does tributes better–and they know it too! Check out the shade they threw at Madonna’s tribute right after.

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
