Sunday’s 2012 annual BET Awards is being hailed as one of the best in many years. There were many solid performance, funny moments and special tributes.
Beyonce, Jay-Z, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian light up front row and was laughing for the most part of the show. However, there was one joke that turned her off.
The group Mindless Behavior made a joke about Lauryn Hill’s recent tax troubles while on stage with Mike Epps during the presentation for the Best R&B Artist Award, which Beyonce won.
“You sing BAD, like Lauryn Hill’s tax accountant bad,” one member said.
During her acceptance speech Beyonce paid homage to Lauryn Hill and others who paved the way for her.
“I want to thank all the talented R&B women that came before me like Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige,” Beyonce said.
According to reports, when Beyonce walked off the stage she told one of the BET handlers that she found the comments disrespectful and not cool.
