Bieber Gets Love From BET!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJustin BieberNicki MinajB.O.B.



Justin Bieber has been nominated for a Black Entertainment Television award, earning a nod in the Best New Artist category alongside Nicki Minaj, B.o.B., Young Money and Melanie Fiona!

Stephen Hill, BET's President of Music Programming and Specials, says:

"Bieber has crossed the color boundaries the same way that hip-hop has crossed the boundaries the other way for a number of years. He's had rhythm in his music. He makes the type of music our audience likes."

Congrats, Biebs!

    I must be the only one who thinks that Justin Bieber sucks.

  5. 5

    Another post that sounds nothing like Perez Hilton.
    Perez (the real Mario): you need to get back and start steering your ship again, because it's way off course. Whatever you're off doing, I think it's a real mistake for you to neglect the blog that made you famous.

    $100 says this kid turns into Danny Bonaduce.

  7. 7

    i fucking hate him. he has already turn into a little arrogant slut.

  8. 8

    I'm impressed you can type and have his dick in your mouth at the same time.

  9. 9

    i am very disappointed in BET for allowing him to be a nominee!!

  10. 10

    he doesnt stand a chance against those other people

  11. 11

    Woooooooooo Bieber!!!!!!!!

  12. 12

    I like Justin Bieber. But i'm going Nicki Minaj all the way for best new artist. She really deserves it. Loves her.

  13. 13

    I dont know how can you idolize a kid who look like a girl ( the other day i saw a lasbian that looked just like him lol ) and sings like a girl

  14. 14

    The more I think about BET, the worse I think of it. Why is there a BET to begin with? Why does it have to be "Black Entertainment"?

  15. 15

    Re: Princessgvam – No your not, I think he has about 15 more minuets. Who is smoking crack to think he has crossed the color boundaries. WTF…..

  16. 16

    way to go biebs! you are awesome! your slowly taking over the world!

  17. 17

    Re: Scahootowl – LMFAO…..

    I'm not going to watch especially the crap they pulled last year. Maybe one or two decent performances will happen, but no BET for me anymore. Congrats Justin.

  18. 18

    Re: Princessgvam – nope your not.

  19. 19

    he just cant win…..lil twat

  20. 20

    Hi is so Good!

  21. 21

    BET has been going downhill for years. The original founder even announced her displeasure at what has happened to the network.

  22. 22

    perez i think you signed a contract that says you have to be a day or two late with your news.

  23. 23

    He is only on BET because he is involved with Usher. Actually, thats the only reason he has a career at all.
    If there was a WET (White Entertainment Television) it would be racist…I dont get it

  24. 24

    I thought BET awards for black people only.. I guess they're desperate for big celebs to show up.

  25. 25

    BET nominated him bkz his video shows a black guy choking him (a white kid) and that's the kind of images BET's audience likes to see.

  26. 26

    Bieber is NOT doing anything new…remember a guy named Justin Timberlake?

  27. 27

    what a joke. give the award to usher.

  28. 28

    good for him, he deserves all the success he is getting!

  29. 29

    Re: turbo9956 – thats exactly what ive been saying for years! If there was White Entertainment Television the producers would be shot for being racist so why is BET ok? Anyways, kudos to them for allowing Justin Beibs, we need to stop paying attention to ppls skin color and make it about the music and talent of the person…maybe they should just shorten it to ET lol

  30. 30

    big black dick is going to be happy when he hears this. he has the bever fever

  31. Eris says – reply to this


    Re: KimiKiwi – I agree with this as well, the same applies to jokes white jokes or remarks are fine and white racists like Chris Rock are acceptable, but then who makes a black remark etc.. is called a racist and hated by everyone. Discrimination applies to everyone not only black people, it offends everyone. If 'blacks' don't want to be discriminated then they shouldn't discriminate others, otherwise they get what they deserve. For discrimination to be stopped not only one race has to stop being racist but also the other + the rest, it takes 2 to tango.

  32. 32

    Re: KimiKiwi – @ 29 - everyone will argue that all other stations on TV are "white entertainment"……….primarily speaking, white people also are not protected under hate crime laws……

  33. 33

    sorry, I'm not a Bieber hater, don't really care 4 his songs, but he's only famous b/c he has Usher as his backer & got Ludacris 2 rap in his song, hello both r black. If it wasn't 4 their support, don't think he would get the love from the black community as much.
    And isn't BET "BLACK ENTERTAINMENT", shouldn't they b supporting black entertainers y the fuck r they nominating some lil white kid? In my opinion BET exists 2 show young black kids that yes, u can b some1 n make it. There should b more like it.

  34. 34

    This is tres bizarre. Lots of white artists have crossed the color line, what about the OTHER Justin, Timberlake? He's extremely talented and has worked with so-called "Blacks" many times. this is just plain weird. I like Bieber, but he's so NEW, and….come on, whites have been crossing the line since Elvis and Hall & Oates.

  35. 35

    Justin bieber is actually black just like MJ was white… The END

  36. 36

    Shouldn't he have been nominated for a WET instead?

  37. 37

    Re: lalalala – that is some funny shit

  38. 38


  39. 39


    does he even matter anymore??


  40. 40

    WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY?!?!? Why can't this kid go away?! I do not see his appeal at all, this could be because i'm 23 and taller than he is but i can't understand what girls see in him that causes him to go into a frenzie! His singing isn't even that good and he has a horrible hair cut!!

  41. 41

    Everybody take note. This Hair-do that twinks are sporting these days will be the new Mullett.

  42. 42

    No He does suck!! And BET hasn't been black for years!

  43. 43

    Ok…lets all get mad about BET when all the rest of the hundreds of channels are so WET with different names. Morons! Justin B and suck it!

  44. 44

    and FYI…BET ain't been black for years…ask your black friends if you have any - how many actually watch that channel.

  45. 45

    Re: vincenotvance – if there was a WET (white) there would be a riot

  46. 46

    BET has always nominated or played white artist that did R&B and Hip Hop. Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke, and Eminem to name a few. This is nothing new.

  47. 47

    Re: SClub7 – Uhh no. Justin B is not the only white artist that has been nominated.

  48. 48

    Re: turbo9956 – actually BET is owned by viacom now (white people who also own MTV) so shit like this doesn't surprise me…the only reason BET was ever made was because no one else would play black videos and music i still dont see why white people bitch about BET don't you have CMT, GAC all the other hundreds of channels that mainly compose of you?? the only difference is those channels don't have to be labeled as WET i can simply look at 85% of the people on there and realize exactly who its for….really the complaining makes you look stupid and a bit racist yourself

  49. 49

    ah, as with pretty much anything having to do with black culture, you get your handful of geniuses saying "well a WET channel would be racist… what gives?!"

    To those who have it "figured out", go turn on your TV and count the white people. The reason that Black History Month and Gay Pride Parades exist is because EVERY OTHER MONTH is white history month, and straight pride parades happen every day when straight people walk the streets free from any discrimination or hate. Srsly people, grow up. I'm white and I don't complain about how people can call me "cracker" (how offensive of a term!), but I am not supposed to call people the n-word.

    As for the Biebz, he really needs to go away. Soon. Like that other guy said, he's an arrogant little douche and I'm tired of seeing his face everywhere. The only reason BET is doing this is for publicity… it's not a racial thing. It's a marketing thing.

  50. 50

    oh yea and beiber don't cross shit. i doubt this kid will have a career past his 20's im just saying….

  51. 51

    Re: justme09 – "really the complaining makes you look stupid and a bit racist yourself"…ummmm…arent you doing the same thing?

    read the comments, I'm not the only one that feels this way

  52. 52

    Dahling…………love from bet????…..They are just getting him there so they can assrape his pansey ass……Mario you HAVE to stop with this child, you just look like the douche you are……..This kid makes me fuckin hurl….M.

  53. 53

    Re: turbo9956 – im really not complaining im just putting your stupid asses out….im aware there are other people who think like you and that statement address them to.

  54. 54

    Re: VeganVal – Yeah Perez … what she said!

  55. 55

    Re: darthschwartz – lol…too true!

  56. 56

    Re: justme09 – you're such a dumb little bitch……one day when you're a big girl you'll realize how the world works…..hopefully………….

  57. 57

    Re: April 20th – lol how am i dumb and wtf are you getting mad about??because i pointed out facts? how about you STFU and choke on a dick???im a big enough girl to call out bullshit when i spot it trust me.

  58. 58

    Re: justme09 – so..I make a comment and I am automatically complaining, white and racist….. but when it comes from you, your just calling out stupid asses.
    makes no sense at all.

    it's all good…. nobody will ever be right while discussing race, religion or politics. everybody has a different view.
    I'm done
    Love ya!

  59. 59

    Re: turbo9956 – yep thats pretty much how it goes…buh bye

  60. 60

    The only reason hes gettin this award is because hes wit usher… really i do not see how he passed the color barrier at all. A lot of other artist have done that for years. And I do understand where ppl come from when they say every other channel is white. it is kinda true. Mayb they shuldnt say black et just have a different name because you gata be politically correct nowadays, but most of the top shows are made up of white ppl.

  61. 61

    Re: It !s what it !s

    Yea I actually do agree you and Justme09. I can see both sides of the argument…like "white" ppl have their country channel and a lot of channels is orientated towards white ppl but what do you guys expect? Are they not the majority? LOL anyways I do not know why white ppl get so bent out of shape because black ppl apparently have 1 channel that is suppose to be orientated towards them…I do not hear them complaining about Asian channels or Latino channel or even the Aboriginal channels sooo ppl just get over it! BET sucks anyways!!!!

  62. 62

    Re: Princessgvam – Nah. Your not the only one.
    I also think that.

  63. 63

    Re: lalalala – LMAO!!

  64. 64

    Re: justme09 – i read your comments daily - you're a little girl that thinks she knows everything and attacks others that don't share her opinion (just like mario)……..

  65. 65

    Congrats Justin u totally deserve it. Go spread that Bieber Fever!!!!

  66. 66

    Re: April 20th – lol can we stay STALKER..im going to need you to get another hobby i can say what a please and i don't really give a shit about your thoughts…K

  67. 67

    Why the fuck did no one tell me Hell froze over!? Bleh!

  68. 68

    Re: April 20th – what about the period dramas, like here in the uk, 400 hundred years ago there were no black people there, yet they are in the drama, just so people dont call them racist. its political correctness gone mad

  69. 69

    "our audience" UGH BET disgusts me they're just promoting racism and justifying stereotypes. I'm black and I can't stand the shit they play on that network.

  70. 70


    Nicki Minaj is disgusting and shes un-talented. She definetly does not deserve an award, especially for Best New artist.
    But really BET. If Justin Beiber wasnt signed by Usher he probably would have never made the nominations.
    BET is one racist pile of crap. How would someone feel if there was such thing as a WHITE ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION.
    Theyd be sued and shut down.

  71. 71

    Re: justme09
    CMT and others arent dedicated to white people only, if black people made a country song do you think it wouldnt be played. Because pretty sure ive seen a young black country start on CMT numerous times (sorry dunno her name..look her up). Also Nelly.
    You need to be educated as to why people are making these comments before you go flapping your lips around.
    BET is a form of racism.
    If we were to Call anything "white star power" how would that be looked at? RACIST!
    So why is it blacks get special treatment
    its really lame.
    You make a joke towards a white person its supposed to be hilarious, White makes a joke towards a black we might as well just be prepared to go to court right?
    Its called equality. Wasnt thats what Martin Luther King was fighting for and Malcom X
    Equality means equal rights incase your not smart enough to understand that.
    Means if BET can be around so could WET or SET or AEt (White, spanish, asian)
    Nope just blacks cause they are special and were slaves. So everyone owes them. Nope i think not First black slave was sold by a black man. hmmmm… SHUTUP


  72. 72

    Re: bellalad
    your the moron
    there is no such channel as WET
    Can the channels help it if there are more white entertainers then black. Nope but do they hesitate to play shows because they are all black, nope, thats not called white entertainment
    In fact most whites dont really care what they watch as long as it has talent in it.
    Oh yah and I do have black friends
    Infact my fiance is from Ghana and im pregnant with his child.

  73. 73

    Re: Chely.Rae – are you fucking stupid???bitch did i not just say BET is OWNED by white men
    …o gosh its obvious your fucking retared or didnt read the first comment so i guess i will repeat myself
    how many damn times do you actually see a black person on CMT now how many times do i see white people on BET mmm lets see madonna,justin timberlake,justin bieber,xtina ect its pretty simple if a white artist play music black people find ENTERTAING it will be played on BET its BLACK ENTERTAINMENT not BLACKS ONLY TV but yet you wanna complain about one fuckin tv channel dedicated to blacks when white people are constantly being broadcast 90% of the time on every single fuckin channel..are you serious right now white people like you kill me with that reverse racism shit..
    the whole reason for BET was the simple fact that whites would never allow a black video to play on there channels, i swear you motherfucker really wanna experience some real racism and discrimination huh

  74. 74

    and another thing WTF are you ranting about with this equal rights shit your not even making sense anymore white people can and DO go on BET if they want to .you act as though whites are not allowed on that TV program…its not a fact that there are "MORE WHITE ENTERTAINERS THEN BLACK" its that fact that these racist ass white producers don't like to hire black actors becuase they don't think black,spanish or asian actors are "American enough" i cant tell you how many minority actors have complained about being really discriminated AGAINST JUST BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE BLUE EYES AND BLONDE HAIR….REVERSE RACISM IS AN EXCUSE STUPID ASS NIEVE WHITE PEOPLE LIKE YOU MAKE UP TO HIDE BEHIND THERE OWN IGNORANCE….

  75. 75

    Re: Chely.Rae – your so full of shit there is nothing racist about BET or telemundo.LOGO is for gay people entertainment are they discriminating.Yall (white) motherfuckers literally have just about every cable channel there is and yet you wanna BITCH AND MOAN about one channel for blacks (that still play white people music) really???? #killyourself

  76. 76

    Re: Chely.Rae – and just because your stupid ass got knocked up from some african guy and have a COUPLE of black friends does not make you any less ignorant and it damn sure doesn't give you any credibility. how about you learn the history of the BET and realize who the real people are that run that network before you start crying racism this and racism that… ass wipe

  77. 77

    Re: Princessgvam – No. I think he sucks.

  78. Coqi says – reply to this


    What about Joss Stone?? That woman "crossed over" and was a huge new artist a couple of years back. Talk about a girl with soul and true talent to back it up. This Bieber kid is only getting this recognition because of his affiliation with Usher who is the new self proclaimed Michael Jackson.

  79. 79

    Re: Chely.Rae – ugh shut up its so stupid see i knew that once this mentioned bet some other white person would mention how unfair it is ugh shut the fuck up we white people hate to be called racists but its us always throwing the first racist stone! um there have been numrous white peformers on BET and why does no one ever complain about Telemundo, or hispanic heritage month etx…shut the fuck up cuz you have no idea what you are talking about! and if you ever watched a fucking chris rock special he makes fun of everyone including black people im white and i fucking love him

  80. 80

    Re: Chely.Rae – and stop lumping all black people together ugh dumbfuck

  81. 81

    Re: justme09 – i usually find your post and you are a hypocrite nothing but racists just like the people you cuss out on here! yeah justme turns out youre just like them! racist fuck!

  82. 82

    that kid justin beiber is terrible. Nicki minaj all the way. that kid isnt even black thats why its called BLACK ENTERTAINMENT

  83. 83

    Re: charlotte0505 – okk and explain how im the racist…since you know me so well and all

  84. 84

    wtf? bet stand for black enterainment not hip hop entertainment hes not even black that means anyone can get nominated. if he wins i hope kanyes there to ruin his moment

  85. 85

    Re: vincenotvance – My guess would be that Black America would like an opportunity to showcase the talent of their (and our) youth so that children can see, for themselves, that there are NO limitations. It's not a racial thing. It's a cultural thing.

  86. 86

    Re: justme09 – Well said!!

  87. 87

    Justme09…… isn't there a way you can get your point across without dropping a curse word every other sentence? By the way you look like a man in drag.

  88. 88

    Re: vincenotvance
    Because when we wanted to be represented in TV, no one would, so we created a channel that does. Just like thousands of other channels on TV….for everyone else. It's like telemundo for hispanics and latinos, Lifetime for women, or spiketv for men, no difference.

  89. 89

    Re: boxergal – LOL!

  90. 90

    Re: justme09 – no i don't know you so well and thank the lord for that because you little girl are nothing but a racist! reverse racism doesn't exist? we white people made it up? fuck you! reverse racism is alive and well bitch i cant tell you how many times i've dated a black guy and his family can't stand to see their son with a white girl so yeah its alive and well but you fight racism with more racism and if we ever want to get rid of racism thats not the way to do it! you always hate when white people say something about black people but yet you do the same fucking thing! how about you educate yourself little girl

  91. 91

    Re: boxergal – that was….corney = /

  92. 92

    Re: justme09 – i agree with what you are saying about 85% of the channels ARE filled with a majority of white ppl, but to NAME a channel BLACK entertainment television is kinda lame. and i enjoy bet.

    Re: turbo9956 – agreed!
