BET Awards Will Honour Prince With Range Of Performances | Music News

Prince 08.06.2016ANDREW


Just minutes after Madonna’s tribute to Prince at last month’s Billboard Awards, BET responded by announcing its own plans to honour the Purple One at their awards on Saturday, June 26. Now, BET has announced that Prince’s former bandmate, Sheila E, will perform along with The Roots, D’Angelo and Janelle Monae.


Although a since-deleted video tweet for the forthcoming BET Awards, captioned, “Yeah, we saw that. Don’t worry. We Got You”, poked fun at Madonna’s delivery of “Nothing Compares 2 U”, Questlove later defended Madonna on Twitter. That track, of course, was originally written by Prince, and made famous by Sinéad O’Connor.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
