BET Awards Are Back!

  The nominations are out! Some are happy about the selection while others are CLEARLY not.  Honestly, I'm indefferent about the nominees, especially since it's been an "extremist" year (by extremist, I mean 9 times out of 10 you already know who's going to win the award - based on their media popularity and pop culture takeover.) I am, however, looking forward to covering the 2011 BET Awards again, LIVE from LA June 26th - last year, the BET Blogger Suite was posh!  (Did you miss 2010 BET Awards? Check out last year's coverage HERE) Hosted by Kevin Hart, this year's BET Awards standouts includes Chris Brown leading with 6 nominations, Lil Wayne received 5 and Kanye West, Rihanna and Drake tie with 4 a nominations a piece. Cee Lo Green and Bruno Mars Go Head-to-head for Best Male R&B Artist along with Chris Brown, Trey Songz and Usher...(my vote is Chris Brown on this one!) And the BET Awards 2011 nominees are: (My Winner Picks in *bold*) Disclaimer:  I am by no means a music blogger, but I do know entertainment and my 10+ years in radio kinda gives me a "heads up" on what's going to happen.   Best Female R&B Artist   Beyoncé (who may actually show up this time since she's promoting her new album...)
