Oops! BET Misspells Lionel Richie’s Name During Awards Show!

What’s an award show without a name being butchered or in this case, misspelled?!

On Sunday night, BET honored legendary singer, Lionel Richie with the Lifetime Achievement award. From tribute performances to kind spoken words, it was definitely a night Richie will remember forever. Sadly, the singer will also remember BET spelling his name wrong.

While the singer accepted the award, the name “Lionel Ritchie” appeared across the screen. Oooops. (Here’s a little tip, always remember Lionel is RICH, so his last name is spelled the exact same way.)

“I have a little motto that I use and I’m going to pass it on to the artists of today: Soul is a feeling, not a color,” the 65-year-old said wile accepting the award. “Talent is a God-given gift and not a category. And out of the box, out of the box is that magical place where talent—true talent—goes to live and thrive and breathe. And may you never give that up as long as you’re in this business.”

During the tribute, John Legend performed “Hello” and “Still,” Ledisi sang The Commodores’ “Brick House” and in one of the most touching performances of the night, Yolanda Adams brought the crowd to their feet with her cover of “Jesus Is Love.”

“After listening to ‘Jesus Is Love,’ I’m glad I sang the song first. Otherwise, I would not be up here. That was absolutely amazing,” Richie said. “Everyone did a great job … These are all the songs that they told me would ruin my career.”

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
