The crowd went wild last night at the fifteenth annual BET Awards in Los Angeles, when Queen B took to the stage to perform a live rendition of Freedom, a track from her album Lemonade.
She opened the show with rapper Kendrick Lamar, who is set to headline Longitude this month in Marlay Park, and quite literally brought the house down. There was smoke, lava and some fireworks- casual Sunday night.
The best part? It was a total surprise! Bey was not supposed to be performing at the awards, and was not even included on the set list.
The awards were established in 2001 by the Black Entertainment Network to celebrate African Americans and other minorities in music, acting, sports, and all other areas of entertainment.
To top off the major excitement of her performance, Bey also took home the award for Best Female R&B Artist! Among the other winners were Drake, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna.
What a night! All hail Queen B!
The Kardashian’s biggest rivals, Amber Rose and Blac Chyna, have teamed up to support marriage equality (and let’s face it, throw a bit of a dig at the Kardashian clan).
The pair emerged at yesterday’s BET Awards wearing matching outfits and holding hands.
Kanye West and Tyga’s ex’s even stole a kiss on the red carpet to celebrate the recent ruling that will make gay marriage legal in all 50 states in America.
Ms Rose posted to Instagram saying “Chyna @blacchyna and I went to the BET awards as each other’s Date to celebrate Marriage Equality #LoveWins.”
Kylie Jenner’s public enemy number one, Blac Chyna, has also been very vocal about her support for marriage equality.
When the Supreme Court ruling came in, the mother of Tyga’s child took to social media to reveal her delight.
“#LoveWins it’s truly amazing to think about all of the changes we’re able to see during our generation. When our children are grown they probably won’t even believe that once upon a time Gays and Lesbians were unable to get married.”
We can’t imagine Kim and Kylie are too happy about this new team but they can’t deny, it’s for a great cause.
Rihanna definitely caught everyone's attention during her appearance at the Black Entertainment Television Awards (BETs) last night.
The 27-year-old singer stepped out bra-less and in a short gold suit to the awards ceremony where she was debuting a clip from her new video for Bitch Better Have My Money… but her outfit was the last thing on people's minds.
Before taking to the stage, Rihanna seemed to get into an argument with BET’s president of programming, Stephen Hill, and luckily for us the whole thing was caught on camera.
She can be seen talking to Stephen backstage before she says “Why not? This is why I don’t like coming to BET” before throwing a wad of cash in his face and strutting on stage like nothing had happened. It's thought RiRi had wanted to throw the cash into the crowd but was prevented from doing so by Stephen.
But not to worry, she will definitely be allowed back next year after the pair both took to Instagram to show they had kissed and made-up and that they were pals again.
Rihanna was also spotted carrying some duct tape when she turned to Floyd Mayweather and taped his mouth shut and his reaction was priceless!
Rihanna seemed to confuse everyone with this stunt but if it's attention she wanted, she definitely got it.
