BET AWARDS 2021

Just a few hours ago, on Sunday June 27, the 2021 Bet Awards were held in Los Angeles. The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles was teeming with “real” people and the stars gave their best, both on the red carpet and on stage. The luxury was certainly undeniable, but the style was sometimes lacking, and if there was, it was on the border between the baroque and the convoluted.

The fact remains that a multitude of artists of this caliber all together and in one place had not been seen for some years, due to pandemics and restrictions, so we cannot miss the opportunity to study and evaluate the outfits proposed by the stars.

Do you know what the Bet Awards are?

The Bet Awards are prizes that are given in an evening entirely focused on celebrating the “African Americans” in terms of music, sport, acting, social commitment and many other sectors. The first ceremony took place in 2001 and since then the Bet Awards have become an annual event. This year’s Bet Awards were important in many ways. First of all, the 2021 Bet Awards were one of the first musical and social events to resume at full capacity, that is, with real people, real spectators and non-artificial stages. They were held in the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and unlike last year, where the Bet Awards were held in virtual mode, this year everything is back to normal. The stars had the opportunity to prepare and show off their best looks and to walk the red carpet as usual.

The theme of the 2021 Bet Awards was “year of women of color”. Queen Latifah, singer, actress and activist, for example, received her Lifetime Achievement Award tonight. Leading this edition of the Bet Awards was the award-winning actress Tarji P. Henson, who said during the opening of the show: “Celebrating women of color is not a trend, but a mood of all time … there is room for everyone. we to thrive, because nobody is you like yourself “

He announced the single on 11 June. A promotional image of the single cover appeared on the Tate Modern in London. About the new music, he revealed, “I’ve been working away in the studio over recent months, and I can’t wait for you to hear ‘Bad Habits'”.

LYRIC

“Bad Habits”

Every time you come around, you know I can’t say no
Every time the sun goes down, I let you take control
I can feel the paradise before my world implodes
And tonight had something wonderful

My bad habits lead to late nights ending alone
Conversations with a stranger I barely know
Swearing this will be the last, but it probably won’t
I’ve got nothing left to lose, or use, or do
My bad habits lead to wide eyes stare into space
And I know I lose control of the things that I say
I was looking for a way out, now I can’t escape
Nothing happens after two
It’s true, it’s true
My bad habits lead to you

My bad habits lead to you
My bad habits lead to you

Every pure intention ends when the good times start
Falling over everything to reach the first times spark
It started under neon lights and then it all got dark
I only know how to go too far

My bad habits lead to late nights ending alone
Conversations with a stranger I barely know
Swearing this will be the last, but it probably won’t
I’ve got nothing left to lose, or use, or do
My bad habits lead to wide eyes stare into space
And I know I lose control of the things that I say
I was looking for a way out, now I can’t escape
Nothing happens after two
It’s true, it’s true
My bad habits lead to you
My bad habits lead to you

We took the long way ’round
And burned till the fun ran out, now

My bad habits lead to late nights ending alone
Conversations with a stranger I barely know
Swearing this will be the last, but it probably won’t
I’ve got nothing left to lose, or use, or do
My bad habits lead to wide eyes stare into space
And I know I lose control of the things that I say
I was looking for a way out, now I can’t escape
Nothing happens after two
It’s true, it’s true
My bad habits lead to you

My bad habits lead to you
My bad habits lead to you

The Road Home — In the Net! – Pictures and Stories of Life

On June 24, M and I left the Northwest Territories to head to British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. Here are a few photos from our drive west through the mountains. They aren’t terrific because I took them from a moving vehicle through the dirtiest windshield ever! Mountain view. Getting closer. Young mountain sheep in Jasper National […]
