The BET Awards: My Two Favorite Dresses … And The Real Power Couple

So Sunday night was BET Awards.  Honestly, prior to Igwe, I was not much of an awards-watching person. I would usually just catch the highlights the next day, but lately, I’ve been watching and enjoying them – even the red carpet! I guess I’m evolving. I’ll try my best to keep this post short.

There were two dresses that I instantly fell in love with:

Rocsi Diaz, host of 106 & Park

When I saw Rocsi interviewing people in this dress (whose maker I do not know), I completely stopped listening and kept staring at her dress. I love it!! It’s simple and sexy. If I could afford it, I definitely will not mind wearing this – after I’ve altered the plunging neckline, of course. Where am I supposed to keep my breasts while my neckline is plunging like this?  And to think, there are some people whose breasts are smaller than this, but I won’t mention their names. They know themselves.



Bee-Yawn-Say! You can probably count how many times I’ve written about Beyonce on this blog. It’s not that I don’t like her; it’s just that I’m not particularly crazy about her music. But you know what I do lover about her: her privacy! And, of course, her curves. Her beauty. Her money. It goes on.

This dress – whose maker I have not bothered to find out either – is beautiful! Everything about it is beautiful. The color. The length. And check out that slit! Oh, let’s not forget the mirror-mirror belt.  I want it all: dress, belt, slit, shoes, and legs, darn it!

That said, no one can quite figure out – yet – if Beyonce’s friendliness with Kim Kardashian is for real, or just for the sake of our entertainment. When fans saw the two seemingly laughing together at a basketball game, they (the fans) were apparently not very happy that Beyonce would be friends with Kim Kardashian. Apparently, Kim isn’t on Beyonce’s level.  So are they really friends?

I don’t know. I’m voting entertainment here.

Then, there was the issue of the real power couple. Kim Kardashian and Kanye vs Beyonce and Jay Z?


Kanye and Kim Kardashian


Beyonce and Jay Z

Errr. I’m gonna play it obvious and vote for Beyonce and Jay Z.

      Very valid question. My mom, grandma, and family are fine with it. However, there’s more to this story that isn’t quite blog-ready yet. And you know I like to blog about everything. When the time is right, I will definitely go into details.

      Thank you so much for asking :-)

      My website did what?!?! How rude! Don’t mind it; it does the same thing to me when I’m responding to comments too quickly. Per Bey and Jay, I know. And with Kimye, I think everyone is just waiting for them to split up.
