This year the BET Awards are crazy. A lot of guests showed up that I didn’t expect. From Justin Beiber, Will & Jada Smith, and even the homie Diamond.

Although a lot of people boycotted the awards, with Beyonce performing this years’ show will be better than last year.

Stay tuned right here at Freddyo.com for all your BET Awards updates and more photos to come. For now here are the red carpet pics:

 

DJ Khaled dropped the video for “I’m On One” during the BET Awards Preshow which features Lil’ Wayne, Drake and Rick Ross.

In the video for “I’m On One” you can expect some very dark imagery from the Gil Green directed clip. In fact, when asked about the video Gil said,

“The whole idea is it’s not that polished glamour side of Miami, it’s the real side,” added Green. “The idea of this video is very dark, it’s very dreary. The imagery is very seductive and moody and edgy.”

ManDown: Rhianna Takes Fall On Stage

Pop sensation Rhianna had a Mandown situation as she tripped over her boots while performing in Edmonton. During performing her hit “What’s My Name” she tripped and fell to the floor but immediately kept the show going. Peep the fall below:

Jennifer Hudson aka J-Hud just released her second video to her top selling album “I Remember Me”. This is the first album she has released since the travesty involving her family. But since then my girl has been on her grind and has America saying WOW. Her first track released “Where You At” was a hit and now I have a strong feeling that this song and video is gong to blow up.

If you haven’t heard of Sheneka Adams then you must be living under a rock without internet access. Sheneka is King Magazine’s Web Girl of the year…yea, she’s having a good year. Now to be completely honest — when I first read about Video Model, Sheneka Adams, I was a little uncomfortable with my findings, most of the headlines and stories showed this beautiful young lady in shall we say very compromising positions. In respect to her I wanted to dig a little deeper into this seemingly one faceted beauty.

Sheneka granted me an interview, and I must say, after hanging up the phone with Ms. Adams, all I could think is “you never should judge a book by its cover” Sheneka’s an intelligent woman, that has learned from her mistakes, and is strong enough to open up and share her stories. She has definitely had fair share of pain, including losing a child, and public scrutiny and embarrassment, but what’s amazing is her outlook on life, her bubbly personality and laugher is almost contagious.

Hip Hop Mogul Jimmy Henchman Arrested

Fugitive hip-hop mogul James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond, recently linked by an inmate to the 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur outside a Manhattan recording studio, has been arrested on cocaine-dealing charges following a month-long manhunt. The owner of Czar Entertainment, is expected to be arraigned later this afternoon in Brooklyn Federal Court.

Federal authorities said Tuesday that Drug Enforcement Administration agents had arrested Rosemond, owner of Czar Entertainment who managed artist from Akon to Sean Kingston, in New York City outside the W Hotel in Union Square, where he was hiding in plain sight.

According to the New York Daily News, Rosemond tried to flee the hotel this morning, but was tackled by marshals and chipped a tooth when he fell. At press time, he was due in Brooklyn Federal Court.

In addition to the drug charges, Rosemond is accused of witness tampering and obstruction of justice, authorities said.

Last week, we reported convicted killer Dexter Isaac claimed Rosemond ignited the East Coast-West Coast rap wars that left rappers Shakur and Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace shot to death. According to Isaac, Rosemond paid him $2,500 to shoot and rob Shakur at a Times Square recording studio in November 1994. The fallout led to Shakur’s slaying in Las Vegas, and Wallace’s murder in Los Angeles.
