It was down to the wire…Eminem’s LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE ‘versus’ Rick Ross BMF (Blowing Money Fast). Eminem was crowned the winner for ‘Best hip Hop Song’ at the Soul Train Music Awards. BMF was one of the hottest rap songs ever, but I guess the Soul Train Awards chose what they thought was more authentic.
Right after the loss, Rick Ross abruptly left the building and skipped out on his performance of Aston Martin Music with Chrisette Michele. And this didn’t sit to pretty with her.
On Christte’s blog, she wrote, ““Who stands off at an award show because they don’t win? An award is winning at being as ‘stuck in a category’ as possible. Congratulations to all the trophy holders who won at being the most like every one else…I could have sworn hip hop was on the come up. But apparently rapping is about venting, bashing, chauvinistic pigging, and EGO. Not cool. Don’t LET me start rapping. (album in stores november 30th).”
Chrisette didn’t address Ross directly…but here’s what she said to him.
“One of my dear friends pulled a little fit and left the awards before he was able to perform,” Michele said, during an interview with Glenn Woods of Atlanta’s Hot 107.9. “That made it so I couldn’t perform with him, and it made me think twice about what it means to receive an award. At the end of the day, just because you don’t win an award doesn’t make you less of an amazing artist. So I was a little disappointed at some people’s behavior at the award show.”
My question is this…are these people in it for the Music? Or do they just want awards and popularity.
