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!

Justice 4 Flint

While most A-listers were gathering in El Lay for the Oscars on Sunday night, other celebs decided to skip the awards ceremony and rally behind Flint, Michigan.

Good on 'em!!

Creed director Ryan Coogler put on the "Justice for Flint" event hosted by comedian Hannibal Buress. Other stars in attendance were Ava DuVernay and Jesse Williams, who were among those to enjoy incredible performances by Janelle Monae and Stevie Wonder.

The event aimed to raise $100,000 for the community affected by the terrible water contamination crisis — and as of right now, they've exceeded that goal by $50,000! Woo!

Not to worry, there's no drama here. Coogler said the Academy Awards had nothing to do with the fundraiser being held the same day — but instead to honor Black History Month. He told Buzzfeed:

"With the #JUSTICEFORFLINT benefit event we will give a voice to the members of the community who were the victims of the choices of people in power who are paid to protect them, as well as provide them with a night of entertainment, unity, and emotional healing."

Other celebs like Diddy and Michael B. Jordan took to social media in support:
