Prince Honored With Lifetime Achievement Award At BET Awards

The future’s in your hands and the world is really yours…

Don’t attempt to wear your own image on a t-shirt unless you are Prince Rogers Nelson.

The icon forever known as Prince was honored at the BET Awards last night. In a tribute performance, Janelle Monae shined in a soul shimmying rendition of “Let’s Go Crazy,” and Alicia hopped on the piano on “Adore.” But the best part came when Patti Labelle kicked off her shoes and the man himself caught one of her pumps.

In his speech, Prince said that the future was bright. And music’s stars did shine brightly, as everyone from Eminem to Kim Burrell lit up the stage. John Legend received the Humanitarian Award for his Show Me Campaign, which benefits education efforts in Africa and in our own Harlem. I know some very happy fifth graders who caught a glimpse of themselves on the show.
