It looks like last night’s BET awards were a really big event. Now I kind of regret not watching, so, my bad. Let’s see – in addition to the Chris Brown junk, Kanye West made a comeback performance, and Beyonce, Alicia Keys and Crake were some of the big winners of the evening. Queen Latifah hosted. Oh, and Eminem was there too – he performed with Keshia Cole, then performed “Not Afraid.” John Legend got the Humanitarian Award. For more details and photos, BET has a gallery, and All Hip Hop has a solid recap.

Now, onto the fashion. First of all, seriously, what is up with Jada Pinkett Smith? These days she’s just looking hard and mean.

I guess Fergie is telling us that she’s not leaving the Peas? Because that’s not what her body language is saying at all.

What is Vivica A. Fox even doing these days? Well, at least she got bangs, you know?

I think Alicia Keys might be having some real issues dressing her pregnant body. This dress is nice, but I’m not sure she should have performed in it. It looks like we’re on the verge of seeing vadge.

She also performed in this… yikes:

I like Ciara’s dress, but I bet it was hot as hell.

Jaden Pinkett Smith, movie star. Oh, and Willow looks amazing again!

Kanye is so crazy.

I could eat John Legend up with a spoon. His dimples are killing me.

Eminem looks good. Healthy. His color looks great.

Drake has a really nice smile. I don’t really know much about him, but he’s a cutie.

Nick Cannon looked nice in his suit. Mariah didn’t come with him. She was probably at home, eating bacon.

    EPIC LOL @FERGIE’S FACE. HYSTAIR, KAISER, HYSTAIR!

  2. canadianchick says:

    I dunno about the hat, but Queen’s skin looks great. Jadaks cheek implants are terrible.

  3. canadianchick says:

    Sorry my text is disappearing again so can’t edit spelling mistakes-I meant Jada.

  4. a says:

    jada looks like that since she started “hawthorne”, maybe she’s stuck in hawthorne mode and moving in on her daughter’s hairstyle.

    alicia’s pregnancy saloon style corset thing with leggings — hilarious!

  5. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    Why the nasty comment about Mariah? I mean are we not always talking about how people are too skinny, then we go to the extreme and insist that someone with a weight issue is at home eating bacon.

    Really, so unnecessary!

  6. Kaiser says:

    Fluffy – Why is it “nasty” to say someone is eating bacon again? I was actually thinking that Mariah is pregnant, and she’s at home resting and eating. As she should be.

    I was also thinking about bacon because I am hungry.

  7. denise says:

    Jada looks terrible, and her daughter looks quite ridiculous. Way too much effort.
    Vivica has messed up her once beautiful face. Now it just looks painful and puffy.
    At least Ciara looks good.

  8. Schanuzers!!! says:

    Mmmmm Bacon….I could go for some bacon right now…and would not at all be offended if Kaiser outed me. LOL

  9. mel says:

    @Kaiser I was thinking that too, she’s home and pregnant. Itz Monday, so ppl are more sensitive LOL!

  10. 1 qt of 1 % says:

    Jada forgot her pants. Do not like this look for her.

  11. Feebee says:

    Why is it nasty to suggest someone might be eating bacon. I love bacon, everything’s better with bacon, though I have yet to try it chocolate dipped. Alas I have a weight problem. But let’s not take it out on the bacon!

  12. denise says:

    I can’t with Alicia’s surgical stockings :(

  13. JustBe says:

    Now, I want bacon!!
    Jada really looks like, Why, just why? Is she wearing a leotard/swimsuit with a tuxedo jacket? Just. Why?
    I wonder what the weather was like where they were because we are experiencing a heat wave on the East Coast and many of those dressed in military-style gear would have been combustible.
    I’ll give Alicia a break because I know that during pregnancy, your body changes so much so quickly that it can be hard to keep up with what fits today, doesn’t fit tomorrow. I think that, if she reviews her appearances, she’d be surprised by the discrepancy between how she thinks she looks and how much her body has changed. I remember looking at pictures of myself while pregnant and constantly being surprised by the number of body changes.

  14. denise says:

    Is it just me, or is the Smith family trying way too hard to be cool? Wreaks of effort.
    Honestly for the first five years of Willow’s life, I thought she was a boy. Then she looked like a girl, now she looks like I dont’ know, I’m confused.

    And why is pregnant Alicia on top of a piano?

  15. Gwen says:

    Jada looks like an alien in the first photo.

  16. Sylvia says:

    LOL@Smith family. Can’t stand Jada and I thought the kid next to her was a boy lol.

  17. sharylmj says:

    I used to love the Smith’s but now they just get on my nerves.. I want to slap Jaden’s cool face right off!!! Jada looks ridiculous in that get up and hair.. Willow looks cute and age appropriate.. I’m sure she has attitude like her brother, but it’s not her turn.

  18. Ruffian9 says:

    Smith fam : Too Much Try.

    Love the Queen! Drake is adorable (the grin!), Legend & Em are pretty hot.

  19. Sumodo1 says:

    Nick Cannon can wear the hell out of a suit, like Jon Hamm, only young and fresh!
    He’s an excellent host. Good on him!

  20. Bored@Work says:

    Ciara’s body is hot and sexy. Jada looks old and tough and very hard. And what the hell is she wearing, not age appropriate, not sexy and definately not cool. She looks like she is trying too damn hard..ughh. And those kids irritate the hell outta me with the “cool face” and “cool pose”. What’s wrong with being just kids. I like Will Smith though, but that Jada trick is killing me…Love Queen Latifah..

  21. amanda says:

    The Smith family is getting on my nerves! There is just something so…. hmmm… obnoxious about them all. Jada looks like a skinny alien. When she was on Leno’s show the other week, she was unrecognizable. Finally, children should not have stylists. That kid next to Jada (which I thought was Jaden, but I guess is his sister??) was obviously dressed by a stylist. Are they trying to get this young child a career, too? Pimping children out on the red carpet and dressing them as adults is extremely sketchy.

  22. Sasha says:

    @ Amanda, yea the Smith daughter has Rihanna’s stylist…like wtf…that family is getting on my nerves too…I’m tired of seeing them(except for Will)
    Jada’s outfit is so stupid, I get it.. u’r proud of ur body…

  23. kelbear says:

    Nick looks like a 10 yr old kid when he isn’t in a suit

  24. Juiceinla says:

    Vivica Fox- has bangs!! hahahahhaah, ah. I remember the “30-somethings face lift” trick all to well.

    I’m ok with Keyes’ dress, isnt she like 5 months preggers or something?

    JPS (surprisingly similar to SJP, no?) scares the ever loving shaz-bot out of me… I bet she can lift Will Smith up by the cahoonies with one hand.

    ps- I was glad to see Em looking good too.

  25. blue planet says:

    One thing I’ll say for Jada is that damn, she’s got great skin

  26. Jeri says:

    Jada’s probably got some Botox too. Others have shown up w/smaller squinty eyes after getting Botox.

  27. Kazoo81 says:

    ciara’s legs are AMAZING. wow. makes me want to go to the gym right now.

    jada has always looked like a little boy to me, it’s getting worse as she gets older. and i still say that their son is prettier than their daughter.

    nick is so skinny. i wonder if mariah feels weird when she’s on top.

    mmm, bacon.

  28. missmilly says:

    @Gwen–I was going to comment and say the say thing about Jada looking like an alien.

    I don’t get it….some thing they are “so above’ and “so important” and so when they dress like total wierdos it’s completely acceptable…strange.

  29. Layla says:

    Did ANYBODY look good (or even decent) at this thing? It looks like Tackyfest 2010.

  30. craigc says:

    Why do all black chicks straighten their hair or wear straight wigs/ extensions?

  31. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    Whenever I see the Smiths, I have this vision of Jada programming those children to believe they’re better than everyone else.

    At least that’s how it comes across.

    I will say, however, that they are better than everyone else at looking ridiculous in public. (What’s with that hair?)

    Oh — for the umpteenth time, to all who have a problem with us haters: Check the Title of this Website. We’re not hear to be nice. Go to BlindGossip if that’s your flavor.

  32. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    Oh, and I meant “here”.

    Oops.

  33. GatsbyGal says:

    Bacon…hahaha, nice one, Kaiser. <3

    And omfg, I love Will Smith’s kids. They dress so cool. They look so cool, in fact, that I’m 24 and if I ever met them I’d probably feel intimidated by how square and lame I am compared to them. His son’s vest is SO BOSS. And I love that the two of them are dressing so stylish, but they still look age-appropriate.

    Oh, and…someone needs to tell Kanye that his crazy is showing.

    Seriously, wtf is he wearing. A giant Horus head on a chain, are you kidding me?

  34. Jello says:

    I thought the bacon comment was funny. I’m still chuckling.

    Bacon, bacon, bacon, bacon, crispy, fried, crunchy bacon!

  35. Dannnii says:

    Yes, because everyone who weighs more than 145 pounds, must be at home, self-loathing in front of the tv and eating greasy bacon.

  36. Jello says:

    Well there certainly are a lot of jabs at the skinny chicks looking like aliens or heroine addicts.

  37. Mistral says:

    Wow, Queen’s headpiece reminds me of something Whoopie would have worn on Star Trek.

  38. L says:

    @mistral That’s the look the Queen wore back in the late 80′s/early 90′s when her Unity album came out. Honoring the past I’m sure.

  39. Mistral says:

    I kind of remember that, L. Some things should stay in the back of the closet, lol. All I can think of when I look at it is Star Trek, Next Generation.
