Rihanna Presents Mary J. Blige With BET Lifetime Achievement Award

Rihanna Presents Mary J. Blige With BET Lifetime Achievement Award
Rihanna took the Microsoft Theater stage on June 23 to present Mary J. Blige with the BET Lifetime Achievement Award. Hailing the legendary singer for her style and sound, Rihanna also made mention of Blige’s history-making two Oscar nominations in the same year, for best actress and original song for “Mudbound.”

Accepting the trophy, Blige told Rihanna, ” I don’t think you know how much I love and respect you. I’m a huge fan and you inspire me right back.”

Blige then gave a moving speech, in which she explained her resilience both in life and career. Said Blige: “People always ask, how do I sustain and stay relevant in this industry? It’s because, although I am a leader, a queen, and a living legend. … I’m a servant as well and I’m here to serve. Being a servant is not always glamorous or popular but it’s the job and the assignment that I was given. It’s because in order to be an authority, I had to learn how to come under authority because when the glory is placed on me I give it back to God immediately. This journey journey has always been bigger than me and my mission is not only just to survive right now, it’s to thrive and continue to make history while I do it.”

Why We Should Give The Bachelorette's Hannah Brown a Break for Keeping Luke P. Around
Relationships are messy, and few more so than those on The Bachelorette.  At this point on screen, Hannah Brown is currently dating nine men, several of whom seem like great guys, and one of whom seems like a jerk with a lot of issues but who, regardless, is still there. For many fans, it's become hard to watch as Luke Parker has dominated the show, especially as we've only really gotten to know a couple of the other men well enough to imagine they might last.  Typically, villains do their thing for a couple of weeks before things erupt and they get sent home, but that has not been the case with the dishonest, manipulative, and occasionally violent Luke, because Hannah's inexplicably (or...
