For the first time ever, Erykah Badu stepped on the Soul Train Awards stage — not to perform though, but to host. It was great to see the soulful singer in a new light, but it made us ask the question, “why?”
As the host for Sunday night’s show, Ms. Badu gave laughs, shade and, of course, soul. But, what you may not know is that there were two specific reasons why the “Tyrone” singer said yes to the gig and no, it wasn’t for the Iggy Azalea jokes. “Cuz they asked me and they’re paying me,” Erykah told HipHollywood.com. That’s right, ask (and pay) and ye shall receive.
While Badu hosting was definitely a highlight of the night’s festivities, stars in attendance were also excited to see musicians like Babyface, Erica Campbell, Tasha Cobbs, Tevin Campbell and more hit the stage.
You can catch an encore of the Soul Train Awards Tuesday, December 1st at 7:30P/6:30Con BET and Centric.
Clapback Queen … Yvette Nicole Brown Got Time Today!
Yes, you can now call Yvette Nicole Brown the “clapback queen”.
Brown has proven she has a way with words and is lethal with her language when it comes to social media shade. And while she tries not to dish it out too often, she found plenty of time to set folks straight about the cancellation of her comedy The Mayor.
The show starring Brown and Brandon Michael Hall never quite got its footing on ABC, which Yvette understood, but it was folks thinking that Lea Michele was the real star of the show that got her fingers tapping away on Twitter.
When HH talked to Yvette she explained why she felt it was important to set the record straight. Plus she revealed the only reason she would ever delete a tweet … actually it’s two reasons.
