BET Awards Announce Their Own Prince Tribute After Trashing Madonna's — And This One Will Be The Most Personal Yet!

no title

Pretty much every artist under the sun has performed a moving tribute to Prince since his tragic death in April.

And while BET didn't seem to think much of Madonna's tribute at the Billboard Music Awards, the cable network is taking matters for honoring The Purple One in its own hands!

BET Networks announced the late music legend will be honored at the 2016 BET Awards with a special live performance by Sheila E., The Roots, D'Angelo, Janelle Monae, and more!

This news comes on the heels of the network trashing Madge's May performance — which featured a surprise appearance by Stevie Wonder — insinuating the tribute was underwhelming in a pretty shady tweet.

In a since-deleted video, BET ran a short teaser of the Material Girl's performance, writing "Yeah, we saw that. Don't worry. We Got You."

But apparently, they DO got us — because Sheila E.'s involvement will easily make this the most personal Prince tribute yet!

The network also announced Alicia Keys and Maxwell, along with more stars, will also be performing at this year's award show.

Do U think BET's Prince tribute will live up to the hype? Watch the performance when the 2016 BET Awards airs on June 26 at 8 p.m. ET on BET!

Stacey Dash Claims She & Morgan Freeman Feel The Same Way About Black History Month — & Even Shares A Video To Support Her Story!

Filed under: Morgan FreemanControversy

Stacey says she's not alone!

Stacey Dash is not backing down!

After the 49-year-old said on FOX & Friends last week that BET and Black History Month should be eliminated, she got a lot of negative feedback, especially from her fellow celebrities.

But the Clueless alum believes there's one famous figure who has her back… Morgan Freeman!

In a blog post she penned on Monday, the actress explained that she's gotten a lot of hate on Twitter regarding her controversial comments, writing:

"When I spoke out on Fox News and on my blog about the need to get rid of BET and Black History Month, all the same usual Twitter haters came out of the woodwork to troll me and say all sorts of disgusting things about me."

But the scandalized star wanted to point out to everyone who was sh*tting on her that she allegedly isn't the only one who thinks this.

She claimed that the amazing actor feels the same way she does, and that he should also be sharing some of the backlash, adding:

"Well, if you're going to call me ignorant, stupid, and an Uncle Tom, you need to be intellectually honest and also call out Morgan Freeman."

And the FOX News panelist even supplied a video she hopes will support her statement, in which the Shawshank Redemption actor discusses Black History Month with the late Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes, sharing:

"What's that you say? You didn't realize that Morgan Freeman agrees with me that having a Black History Month is actually racist and a part of the problem in healing race relations in America? Well, listen to this interview from years back with Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes."

Whoopi Goldberg Takes Stacey Dash To School! Watch The View Host Explain EXACTLY Why Getting Rid Of BET & Black History Month Is Wrong!

She's finally saying something we agree with!

Like most of the cast of The View this season, Whoopi Goldberg has spent the last few months saying some pretty controversial things — which may or may not have helped the ratings for the ABC daytime talk show.

To this day she's still sticking up for Bill Cosby for some reason, but luckily we are a united front when it comes to our opinions on Stacey Dash.

Related: Will Smith Joins Jada Pinkett's Oscars Boycott!

As you've probably heard, after the Oscars failed to nominate a single person of color in any of the acting categories this year, Jada Pinkett Smith proudly suggested that her fellow POCs boycott the awards show.

Always the contrarian, Stacey saw this as an opportunity to suck up to her FOX & Friends audience by flipping the situation and suggesting that having events like the BET Awards and Black History Month are just as racist as #OscarsSoWhite.

Thankfully, Whoopi was there to point out that minority communities are important because they're some of the only ways for people to actually learn about their own cultures.

Also, love her for trying, but Paula Faris just looks so awkward trying to prove she knows anything about black history. LOLz!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!!!
