Posted in BET, BET Awards 2011, with tags , , on June 8, 2011 by breezyworld2

Chris Brown is to join an already impressive list of performers at this year’s BET Awards. Airing live on June 26th at 8pm EST, the annual award show will also see appearances from Alicia Keys and Trey Songz.

Full story below…

The performance will come one year after Brown’s emotional tribute to deceased icon Michael Jackson and no more than three years after his explosive duet with fellow performer Ciara.

Nominated for 6 awards, the ‘Beautiful People’ singer will take to the stage this year to deliver a rendition of music lifted from his latest album,‘FAME‘ which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200.

Check out what the energetic performer served at the award ceremony last year:

Chris Brown Leads BET Awards Nominations

Posted in BET, Chris Brown, LA, Nominations on May 18, 2011 by breezyworld2

Disgraced R&B singer Chris Brown’s comeback is complete – he is leading this year’s Bet Awards with a total of six nominations.

The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was convicted of assault and ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend Rihanna after confessing he beat her during a heated fight on the eve of the 2009 Grammy Awards.

Brown has since attempted to rebuild his reputation and singing career – beginning with a Michael Jackson tribute at the 2010 BET Awards ceremony.

The star insisted the performance was his “ultimate apology” for letting fans down over his actions – and just a year on he has received the most nods at the 2011 event.

Brown is nominated in the Best Male R&B Artist, Viewer’s Choice and Video Of The Year (for Look at Me Now) categories. He’s also been nominated twice in the Best Collaboration category for hit tracks Deuces, starring Tyga and Kevin McCall, as well as Look at Me Now, in which he worked with Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne. The singer also landed a nod for Best Actor for his role in thriller Takers.

Writing on following the announcement, Brown writes, “Thx (thanks) to B.E.T for all the support and I love you…”

Lil Wayne is also up for five trophies at the prizegiving, while Kanye West, Drake and Rihanna are up for four awards apiece. Will Smith’s daughter Willow is in the running for Best Newcomer. Cali Swag District were nominated in the Best Group category, just days after member M-Bone was killed in a drive-by shooting on Sunday.

Comedian Kevin Hart will host the show on 26 June in Los Angeles, while Alicia Keys is slated to perform.

Chris Brown Leads 2011 BET Awards Nominations

Posted in BET,, Nominations with tags on May 18, 2011 by breezyworld2

The nominations are in! Tonight on 106 & Park, Terrence and Rocsi welcomed special guests J. Cole, Waka Flocka Flame and Miguel to the studio and Trey Songz via Skype to help announce the artists nominated for the 2011 BET Awards. Chris Brown, who called into the special broadcast, led the way with six nominations. The singer, who made an impressive comeback this year, earned nods in the Best Male R&B Artist, Best Collaboration (twice), Video of the Year, Best Actor and Viewers’ Choice categories.

At last year’s Awards, Brown jumped off his return with a heartfelt tribute to Michael Jackson. Tonight he told Terrance and Rocsi that the performance was tough for him, but it helped show fans a real side of him.

Since the show-stopping performance, the singer kept his momentum going, leaking chart-topping singles to build up anticipation for his F.A.M.E. album, released back in March. Two songs from that album, “Deuces” featuring Tyga and Kevin McCall and “Look At Me Now” featuring Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes, are nominated this year for Best Collaboration. The video for CB’s “Look at Me Now” is also nominated for Video of the Year. And it’s not just his music career getting the attention. Brown shocked the audience with his acting skill in the film Takers, which got him a Best Actor nomination.

The Young Money team also earned their fair share of nominations this year. Both Lil Wayne and Drake were nominated for Best Male Hip Hop artist, while Nicki Minaj’s nomination in the Best Female Hip Hop artist was a no-brainer. All three of the YM heavyweights are in the Coca-Cola Viewer’s Choice category also. Lil Wayne and Drake are also in the running for Best Collaboration, both appearing on hit singles from other artists (Wayne on the aforementioned “Look at Me Now” and Drake on Rihanna’s “What’s My Name”).

Kanye West, Rihanna, Trey Songz, B.o.B and Marsha Ambrosius all picked up more than one nomination. J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa, Bruno Mars, Miguel and Willow Smith were the nominees in the New Artist category. Miguel blessed viewers with a performance of his hit single “All I Want Is You.” Diddy Dirty Money, Cali Swag District, N.E.R.D., New Boyz and Travis Porter all earned nominations for Best Group.

Another big announcement was the 2011 BET Awards host: actor/comedian Kevin Hart. For a full list of nominees, visit the 2011 BET Awards site. The 2011 BET Awards will air live on Sunday, June 26, at 8PM/7c.


Hair Transformations: Tyga, Chris Brown and Jim Jones

Posted in BET on May 10, 2011 by breezyworld2

Even the menfolk need hair makeovers from time to time and they’ve been pulling out the dye boxes and shears to get springtime fresh.

Young Money’s Tyga followed Chris Brown’s blond birthday ambitions and lightened up his locks—but he kept it subdued, settling on a rusty golden brown color a few shades down (better choice!).

Even Breezy couldn’t resist going back to blond for his birthday celebration last week (May 6). Chris turned it all the way back up with platinum hair when he partied at Club Play in Miami with guests including Lil Wayne, Trina and Mack Maine. The Look at Me Now singer drew comparisons to Amber Rose and Sisqo when he first went blonde in February.

The biggest transformation award goes to Jim Jones, who finally cut those fuzzy cornrows he’s been walking around with for years. If getting engaged was the catalyst for the change, he should run Chrissy Lampkin down the aisle asap! The S-curl is a little juicy, but definitely an upgrade for this Harlem rapper. His Dipset brethren Juelz Santana stamped and approved the new style: “The big homie went from thug to gentleman,” he posted on Twitter.

Chris Brown Has Bi-Coastal B-Day Bash

Posted in Bday Bash, BET, News with tags on May 10, 2011 by breezyworld2

Though his doctor ordered him to get some rest and avoid travel at all cost, Chris Brown was determined to forget his pesky chest infection and enjoy his huge 22nd birthday bash in Las Vegas. He even made a pit stop by South Beach, Miami on Friday night, where he partied with Trina, Lil Wayne and Roscoe Dash at Club Play. The singer hit the stage, ripped off his shirt and showed off a few moves before being presented with a birthday cake designed to look like his F.A.M.E. album cover.

The next day, Brown then jetted over to Las Vegas for part two of his weekend birthday fest. Around 1am late Saturday, Breezy was welcomed by a group of screaming female fans as he entered PURE nightclub and made his way to V.I.P. After welcoming guests, the singer lost his shirt once again and posed with his second birthday cake, a graffiti-inspired sweet treat.

“I just wanna thank everyone for making this day so special! Rough roads, crazy moments, and life lessons. My love for my fans is so eternal,” Breezy later tweeted about his whirlwind weekend.
