BET to give Prince lifetime achievement award - June 27

http://betawards.bet.com/...ees/prince June 27 Live, 8/7 Central time

NEW YORK – This month's BET Awards will be a royal affair: Prince is getting a lifetime achievement honor. The 51-year-old joins the likes of James Brown, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross and Al Green in being honored by the BET Awards, which will celebrate its 10th year in Los Angeles on June 27. BET says the Prince tribute will stand out. Stephen G. Hill, president of programming, music and specials for the network, said BET will celebrate the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's "unique style." "Prince is dynamic. Prince is genius. Prince is music," Hill said of the performer, who has 10 platinum albums and 30 Top 40 singles to his name. The BET show will be hosted by Queen Latifah and include performances by Kanye West.

Well, that question it seems will never go away, lol no biggy, what else is new? lol Not everyone is educated about the varying tones that exist among Black Americans. Anyway, it's nice that BET is honoring Prince. He deserves it.

Good for Prince! But I can't stand the thought that Kanye West is going to be on the same program. In Kanye's mind, Prince is probably there to celebrate HIM, lol. I hope Prince royally ignors his ass (...as I'm sure he probably will, while ignoring everyone else, lol). And WHY did they have to mention Whitney Houston in the same sentence?!? Yeah, I know... same award - just sayin!

All of this publicity makes me think that the album rumors may be true! I'm looking forward to a new (good) album more than a lifetime achievement award from BET.

Exactly, rolleyes to all you people who thinks its "overdue" give me a break, lol

Oh and the BET awards are a joke of an "award" show. I'm with you CallMeCarrie, I'd rather have a good Prince album than this for sure.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

It may seem that way, but I don't think Prince has but one BET award. Remember, the other year, he was there to honor Chaka and perform (to promote 3121).

Besides, the BET Awards hasn't been in existence that long (according to Wiki it started in 2001).

The tributes are usually really good at the BET Awards. I wonder who they will get to do Prince's?
