BET Slams Madonna’s Prince Tribute

As you probably already know, Madonna’s Prince tribute on The 2016 Billboard Awards was an absolute hot mess, and not received well by 95% of people who watched. Honestly, the most effective part of the whole tribute was Questlove’s opening remarks…

But as those who watched saw, it quickly went south after that. Even a last-minute appearance by Stevie Wonder couldn’t quite save it — although apparently Rihanna managed to enjoy herself a little during the Purple Rain portion:

Well, BET wasted no time clapping back at the sham of a tribute, and wanted to let viewers know that they have something big in store to honor the purple one…

Daaaaaaammmmmnn…the shade here is super real. Welp, hopefully BET can deliver with all this big game they’re talking. Now we’re really wondering who and what they have lined up for their honor to Prince…
