MTV VMAs Are Pulling Out The Stops+YBF Celebs Hit Up The BMI Awards

​ ​ ​ ​
  The 2008 MTV Video Music Awards are almost here, but big names are still being added to the talent pool of performers and presenters every day. Following Wednesday's big announcement that Britney Spears will be opening the show (she's not "performing" though so maybe MTV did learn their lesson from a couple years ago) comes word that Kanye West will close out the VMAs on Sunday, despite last year's oath that he'd never return. And T.I. hit up the pre-VMA conference yesterday in LA.  With his cute self. I also hear T-pain has formed a new rock band and they may be performing Sunday night as well. Hopefully he put that damn vocoder down...but I doubt it. The VMAs air live on MTV this Sunday (Sept. 7th) at 9p est.     Stars of today’s urban music scene were on hand to salute legendary singing quintet The Jacksons as they were crowned BMI Icons at the performing right organization’s eighth annual Urban Awards ceremony last night at the Wilshire Theatre in Beverly Hills. Of course Janet was there to honor her bros.  The Jacksons were honored for their “unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers.”: Bobby Valentino, Ray-J, Lloyd were on hand and performed a tribute.  Looking like they're asking for an application to join the Jackson 5.  T.I. and Tiny made an appearance. And so did Christina Milian and Keri Hilson.  Fab.   Lots more pics from the award show when you read the rest...   Little sis Janet was there to present the award to her brothers while rocking some very interesting shoes.  Sweet. Papa Joe and Katherine were on hand as well. Yeah we see you Chris Tucker Keri Hilson performed a tribute to the icons. So did Lloyd. YBF chick Toccara hit the red carpet looking simply fabulous. Ew T-Pain.  I know his grill smells like a beast.  Just imagining...   Christina hit up the carpet with a cute aqua dress. Fuane Chambers and her man (yes, her man...y'all are wrong for laughing) Fonzworth Bentley. Nicole Murphy actually looked pretty nice on the carpet.  Loving this look. Really Mel B.?  Wow.   Not sure who told Diamond (formerly of Crime Mob) this was a good look. Elise Neal kicked it with Cee-Lo on the red carpet. Tatyana Ali was there with an OK look.  She was on the fab track for a while but now we're back to basic and boring. One of our fave YBF couples Shanice and Flex Alexander hit the carpet. Soulja Boy Tell Em was there. Wack Berg and Casha were there. And so was Teairra Mari. Dance troupe Jabbawockeez ("Americas Best Dance Crew") led the musical tribute with a high-energy performance of “Dancing Machine,” O.N.E. performed “I Want You Back,” JoJo and Lloyd delivered a stunning version of “I’ll Be There,” Mario swayed the audience with a rendition of “Heartbreak Hotel,” Keri Hilson sang “Who’s Loving You,” while Lloyd, Mario, Bobby Valentino and Ray J harmonized to the classic “Never Can Say Goodbye.”

  The Randomness: 1.  Jessie Jackson admitted himself to the Northwestern Memorial Hospital yesterday in Chicago.  He was reportedly having severe stomach pains and it has been prelimenarily diagnosed as viral gastroenteritis. Story

Somebody please throw a

Somebody please throw a stylist at Tiny quick. Everytime I see that chick she looks like she just came out the maternity ward. For you to be T.I.'s main lady you need to get it together. Ooops but maybe if she started looking like something it would be mandatory for him to stay out Magic City.

Not feeling Janet's Beret or

Not feeling Janet's Beret or those shoes, niether works for this setting. Try again Ms Jackson. Hmm...is Christina Milian going to a toga party? Come again Ms Milian, no Fab points here, sorry. Dont know Fuane Chambers, but she gets an A! Luv that dress! However, Elise Neal should have been sent back home. Dear Elise, U cant be serious. U get an F+! Dont know why y'all hating on little Ms Diamond, she is rocking that cute skank look...Um minus the purse and the shoes. I think them shoes Janet had would have worked with this outfit. Ha, Ha And the Winner is Teairra Mari! Maybe Jay-Z should have put a little more effort into making her a Star. Well, even if she cant sing, she sure did look like a Star that night. Good Look! Big Ups also to the Jackson 4! Mike and Jermaine just couldnt show up, huh. Same on them.

Umm, I'mma need that little

Umm, I'mma need that little piglet, Tiny, to remove that prison tat off of her arm. Not cute! Christina Milian looks cute as usual, but she looks like she hasn't shaved her legs in a few weeks or is my computer screen playing tricks on me? Mel B looks like a Las Vegas call girl and Diamond is her assistant. Elise Neal and Tatyana Ali are rocking the same heels. Cute! Wack Berg and Casha look about 4 feet tall. And everyone else gets a thumbs up from me.

Wow! The Jackson family look

Wow! The Jackson family look absolutely fab-possibly because Jermaine the Jeri Curl and Michael the Man Ghurl wasn't there. I also saw a picture of LeToya on another site and she looked fab as well. Tocaara needs to share her diet secrets. She looks amazing.

[quote comment="193998"]* Janet - Classy, love it. * Christine Milan - love the look, well put together * Nicole Murphy - love the dress * Shanice (I love your smile, loved that song) - looks happy and beautiful * Terra Marie, or whatever her name is...cute * Toccara - I'm going to have to disagree with you Natasha, that dress, as usual, is all wrong for her shape. She has broad shoulders and narrow hips, she should be wearing the kind of dress Nicole has on.[/quote] Nice recap I agree. One more thing: J5, J5, J5, J5! :) I became a Jacksons fan after the tv movie. Ya'll remember that? Terrance Howard as Jermaine?

Janet and the J-5 look

Janet and the J-5 look wonderful as does Toccara. Tiny looks much better with dark hair, TI still fione; Tatyana Ali needs a stylist and a new hair style; Diamond looks like a two cent hooker with all those ugly tattoos; Elyse looks wonderful; T Pain look like he stink; Mel B should stop the madness; Farnsworth is a cutie; Christina's skin look sorta funny in these pictures; and Keri Hilson and Nicole Murphy both look beautiful.

Either way she was not pretty. Even though he is horrific.

I wonnder if she caught the greyhound to get there! she walks around Atlanta like she is soooooo bomb, but she always looks extra tackY. keri hilson is another one of those people I dont care for. she tries to hard! That black outfit would have looked better if it covered up her stomach, always trying to be "special" Tiny always looks the same! a simple t shirt, jeans, and a over priced bag, she's one of those chicks that think a bag can change an ugly outfit! melanie c - she never had a sense of style since the Spice girls day, not shocked at the disco lights outfit! lover her though! Nicole Murphy- get a day job! what is she known for! Janet looks great![/quote] Nicole Murphy is known for spitting out 5 kids and still having a waist like a 12 year old! That alone in itself atleast makes her a B-lister in my book![/quote] I thought she was known for looking like a tranny and that's why Eddie married her! theres nothing with being sexy at any age, but some of the outfits she wears is not for her. just because you have a nice body doesn't excuse the rough face! I see it all the time! nice body,cute outfit. tranny face! I put her on the z lister list, because most people still don't know who she is! her and mel B had some laughs about eddie after the show!
