BET Awards 2021
For those who mossed the whole show. Woooomp , here it is....
The theme of this year’s BET Awards was “the year of the black woman”, explained host Taraji P Henson (of Empire acclaim). And it truly was. Throughout the show, cameras panned across the front row, showing a bunch of hot-shot industry women such as Issa Rae and Zendaya, who showed up for their fellow sisters as they received their awards. It should be noted that this year’s BET Awards actually boasts the most number of women winners, including Album of the Year going to Miss “I’ll bust ya windows out your car” Jazmine Sullivan, whose comeback to R&B, ‘Heaux Tales’, was unavoidable. 2021’s BET Awards definitely proved that the future is female
The women empowerment stance of 2021’s BET Awards, this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award went to the original woman’s advocate Queen Latifah. About 20 years late, it’s great to finally see Latifah got her roses when she could smell them. Whether you’re too young to know of Queen Latifah’s rap career and only thought she was a stellar comedic actor in films such as Taxi and Last Holiday, or have been there since the start and remember her singing ‘U.N.I.T.Y.’ when ladies were scarce in hip-hop, you’ll know that she highly deserves this award. Honoured by her two hip-hopping best gal pals, Lil Kim and MC Lyte (who both are iconic women themselves), as well as two younger bucks Monie Love and Rapsody, the New Yorker received a heartfelt tribute.
