Young, Black & Fabolous is dishing the scoop on what happened with the recent BET tapings honoring Mary J. Blige. Check out what they had to say below:
“YBF sources (who also work on BET’s production team) tell us that Mary J. Blige and her MANager Kendu relieve Keyshia Cole of her tribute duties recently. The BET Honors Event was taping here in DC during Inauguration weekend. And Mrs. Blige received an award for her accomplishments and contributions to the world. But here’s what went down: Both Anita Baker and Keyshia Cole were tapped by BET to sing a tribute to Mary. But when Kendu found out, we’re told he shut that down real quick. He was overheard telling BET staffers days before the taping that Keyshia can’t sing to Mary. He went on to say there’s already too many comparisons between the two and they don’t need any of that for this event. Damn.
Ms. Baker sang her tribute to Mary, and Monica was asked to take Keyshia’s place. We’re told the audience was “treated” to a Keyshia Cole performance via satellite (since she didn’t even make it to D.C.) during the taping and no one understood the point of it. No word on if that part will air or not on February 22nd. Womp.”
Think that Keyshia has a right to sing like everyone else? She’s not a MJB rip-off? Well check out this gallery of suspected “clones” by clicking here!
