It’s the highlight of the #BETX and probably the most anticipated event of the experience: The Celebrity Basketball Game! Every year some of the hottest stars hit the hardwood to show off their skills and score bragging rights. But this year was the most dramatic yet.

We’ll set the scene…

It was the Shot Callers vs. the Ballers and for the first half it looked like Fat Joe’s team (Ballers) of underdogs, lead by Trevor Jackson, would take the W. But before long the Shot Callers, lead by Chris Brown and The Game, tied the score up. And by the end, it all came down to a buzzer beater shot that caused a bit of debate. You have to check out the video below!

Aside from the thrilling basketball game, the BET experience also offered a host of events like their highly anticipated Genius Talks and performances on the Coca-Cola stage. To call it a fun-filled weekend is truly an understatement.

Oh, and the weekend isn’t over. We still have the big show, the BET Awards, Sunday, June 25th at 8/7c on BET. Will you be tuning in?

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
