BET.com: How were the nominees chosen for this yearâ€™s BET Awards?
Stephen Hill: Like every time, thereâ€™s a collection of music industry folks, bloggers, music writers and, most importantly, a collection of fans that were gleaned from BET.com. We call it the Voting Academy. We had fans, music writers, bloggers and music industry folks.
Why wasnâ€™t Trina nominated in the Female Hip Hop category?
Okay, that was because Trina didnâ€™t submit a video that was in during the eligibility period. Let me back up. To be eligible, hereâ€™s what you have to have: a video thatâ€™s submitted and then first played on BET…between April 1 of one year and March 30 of the next year. So for this eligibility period it would be April 1 of 2010 to March 30 of 2011. She did not release a video to us in that time. â€œMillion Dollar Girlâ€ came in March. I think it was March 12 or so of 2010. And so she was in last yearâ€™s nominees for that. While she was featured in Lola Monroeâ€™s video, the rules are you have to release a video of your own. You have to be the primary artist on it. You canâ€™t be just the feature artist and be eligible. So thatâ€™s why Lola Monroe was eligible but Trina was not for this year because it came out this year. So Iâ€™ve reached out to her camp. Iâ€™ve talked to the head of her label. And actually the only reason I might get off this call is because I may be getting a call from Trina while this call is going on.
If she calls you just go ahead and jump off.
And I want to be clear: We love Trina, we work with Trina. She performed â€œMillion Dollar Girlâ€ on Rip the Runway in February of 2010. So we love Trina. We definitely understand that itâ€™s a misunderstanding. And Iâ€™ll tell you now, if I were Trina and Iâ€™d released something during the eligibility period and it had not been nominated, I probably wouldâ€™ve had a little bit of side-eye too. But the truth is she just wasnâ€™t in the eligibility period.
Trina wasnâ€™t the only one throwing the side-eye. Diamond shouted her out on Twitter, and even Nicki Minaj criticized the nominees. Does that concern you at all? READ MORE
