Reginae Carter’s Performance At The BET Awards Was Not Planned

Young Money's Performance At The BET Awards Was Not Planned

I just heard from a source close to Tiny’s camp who informed me that the appearance of Tiny’s preteen group OMG onstage with rappers Lil Wayne and Drake at the BET Awards was neither planned nor rehearsed.

My source said the group’s appearance onstage was a last minute decision by Wayne and no one else.

According to my source, what happened was Wayne’s daughter Reginae, 9, was upset that she didn’t get the chance to accompany her father, Lil Wayne, to the stage to accept his award because she was sitting too far back in the audience.

Once backstage, the youngster began to cry. And Wayne, who they say is a great dad, hated to see his little girl cry. So he told Reginae she could come out onstage during his performance with Drake. Reginae, being the team player that she is, asked the other members of her group to go out on stage with her.

So there you have it.

Also, remember that the 2009 BET Awards was pre-recorded on Saturday afternoon. So the girls were not up past their bedtimes.

Shouts to Sandra Rose and because it not being planned, this might explain why it wasn’t their best performance and why they performed the songs they did.

Update: Shout outs to Rain for the heads up 😉

BET Awards Viewers Outraged Over Young Money’s Performance

BET Awards Viewers Outraged Over Young Money's Performance

Many BET Awards viewers were outraged when Lil Wayne and Drake were joined on stage by several pre-teen girls during the performance of their hit song “Every Girl“.

Some journalists found the presence of the pre-teens to be a bit strange.

Overall, the show was a big downer because… many things just seemed out of place. For example, Drake‘s performance had Lil Wayne and his pre-teen daughter with other young girls on stage rapping along to “Every Girl in the World,” which is a song about having escapades with all the girls in the world. (Examiner)

Others thought Weezy‘s song choice was inappropriate in light of Michael Jackson’s recent death.

And then came Lil Wayne, in a five minute flurry of such bad taste and poor judgment one can only assume that he was high or simply confused. He performed his new single “Every Girl“. In light of the somber tone of the evening, the performance would have been gauche enough. But onstage with him at the time were several pre-teen girls, who danced in loose choreography and flocked around Lil Wayne like a prepubescent harem. (City Pages)

Miss Info also blogged about the young girls.

Many industry insiders used Twitter to express their disappointment with the performance.

Lil wayne + wanting to f*ck every girl + w/ young girls on stage = smh, pure mess. how did bet miss how inappropriate that was?! (TheSourceMag’s Twitter)

These girls onstage look a littttttle tooooo young to be the subject of this song. could be the red tutu (AngelaYee’s Twitter)

Okay I have a problem! Why are there 12 year olds on stage while Drake and Lil Wayne singing this song!! I as like is that a little GIRL????? and then I was like wait there are more lil kids! HUH?? (TiaMowry’s Twitter)

Drake/Lil Wayne performance really pissed me off by bringing those young 10 year old girls singing I would F ever girl in the world. (IPRMKTG’s Twitter)

Shout outs to SOHH

So what do y’all think about this ❓ We know it is Weezy’s daughter, but I still think this is taking it a bit too far.

PS: We will be uploading lots of pics from the BET Awards 2009 tomorrow 😉

Young Money At The BET Awards 2009 Live Performance [Video]

Above, you can watch the video of Young Money performing live at the BET Awards 2009. I watched the whole show and it was really good, but all I am going to say about YM‘s performance is that it wasn’t their best.

Drake starts off by performing “Best I Ever Had“, then introduces Lil Wayne who performs “Every Girl” with Gudda Gudda and Mack Maine. Birdman then comes out and does his verse of “Always Strapped“. Shanell, Lil Twist and Lil Wayne’s daughter, Reginae were on stage with them too and all I have to say to BET is – Why censor so much of Weezy’s part? 🙁

Anyway’s, I’ll let you decide on what you think of the performance by leaving a comment below and I will be posting some pictures later 🙂

Reminder: BET Awards 2009 Is On Tonight!

BET Awards 2009 Is On Tonight!

Here is a reminder Young Moneyians; the BET Awards 2009 are on tonight at 8PM EST/PST.

Jamie Foxx will be hosting the show and there will be performances from Beyonce, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown and of course Young Mula Babbbbyyyy. I’m not sure if all of the YM crew will be there, but Gudda and Mack have said on Twitter that they are definitely going to be there.

Drake is another person who will be there, but I am not sure if he is performing on his own or with Young Money or even doing both!

Rumors are Lil Wayne won’t be there, but I am not 100% sure of that, so lets just keep our fingers crossed that he is there tonight.

I also know a lot of tonight’s show will be dedicated towards Michael Jackson.

Don’t forget and enjoy ❗ 😉

Edit: It looks like Lil Wayne will be there, because BET have just sent this picture over which can be seen here – http://mypict.me/show.php?id=6gKf. They also say “Young Mooooooollllaaahhhh Baaaaaabbbby! I wonder what HE’LL be doing tonight at the 2009 BET Awards??????”. So, will Weezy really be there and do a surprise performance? – I really hope so 😀
