The 21st annual BET awards returned Sunday, June 27 with a theme that focused on the “Year of the Black Woman.” Award-winning actress and producer Taraji P. Henson hosted the ceremony from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, where a live audience attended the nearly four hour show.
“Celebrating Black women isn’t a fad or a trend it’s a forever mood” Henson said, opening up the show. “There is more than enough room for all of us to thrive, because can’t nobody be like me and can’t nobody be you like you.”
Office life. Sometime’s you have to look around and thank Jehovah for your family and friends. It’s hard to find true and pure love, period. I don’t use the word in vain. I’m thankful, grateful, peaceful, and humbled. And I feel so loved @chrisstokes1969#chrisstokes Jehovah is love and so am I.
Van Jones is advocating on behalf of Kim Kardashian and couldn’t hold back his praises about her during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres while he talked about his upcoming documentary The First Step.
On Monday (May 24), the CNN political contributor shared his thoughts about Kardashian’s journey into studying law, “ She’s doing amazing. I think she’s used her platform to help people behind bars and her dad was a lawyer and she always wanted to be a lawyer and… when she got a taste of what she could do using her platform, using her brain, she hasn’t let up.”
On Saturday (May 15), Kobe Bryant was posthumously inducted into the 2020 class of Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Vanessa Bryant accepted the honor on his behalf and delivered a powerful speech.
Vanessa said, “I used to avoid praising my husband in public because I felt like he got enough praise from his fans around the world and someone had to bring him back to reality. Right now, I’m sure he’s laughing in heaven because I’m about to praise him in public for his accomplishments on one of the most public stages. I could see him now, arms folded, with a huge grin saying, ‘Isn’t this some s—?’ He’s still winning.”
