she was free to pay for her own accommodations to whatever hotel she wanted, but she chose to stay in a free one that BET provided. dont complain.
If that is true she knows what is best for herself.
It was BET job to accommodate her accordingly she should not have come out of pocket or anything She had a right to be uncomfortable.
10:14am Are you serious? First off, Cissy is an elder. Please respect that.This was obviously a careless oversight on BET's part. I'm glad she was moved.
Much ado about nothing. Obviously, BET had no idea it was the same hotel and once realized ... moved the woman immediately. A simple mistake.
I love Cissy and sorry for her loss, but that singing last night. yep. Why didnt Aretha come on and sing that song for her. If God forbids one of my sons pass, I wont be singing in his honor. I will sit my azz down and allow others to. Watching that show was like watching paint dry.
That was rude as hell. They shoulda known better.
@10:30Cissy sang because she's an attention whore.Either that, or it was a paid gig and she did it because she needed the money.In either case, it's still trifling.
A lotta times, criminals or looters of a dead body don't like returning to the scene of the crime.
Be sure that this was done on purpose. BET are experts in peddling garbage and mindless behavior to the masses.
Huh? Bee Gee where are you going with that? Cissy didn't buy Whitney's coke.
I think she was sincere. She wanted to sing to honor her daughter and there's nothing wrong with that.
I have no respect for her. She sold her daughter off to that pedo Clive at a young age.
Do they still rent that suite out to customers? I can imagine someone are willing to pay extra to be in the suite...room...or bathtub that Whitney died in. Yt folks do shit like that.
I would have liked to see a REAL tribute, with powerhouse vocalists (Aguilera, Knowles, Carey, Franklin, etc.) singing some of Whitney's greatests like "I Have Nothing" and "I Will Always Love You". However, if Cissy wanted to come sing and pay tribute to her baby girl, so be it. Not sure why Cissy is given so much flack. I respect her off general principle: She's an elder.
@11:43 whitney was 19, an ADULT. she made whitney finish high school first, because whitney wanted to leave to sign a recording contract.
People do not deserve respect just because they are old. People earn the respect of others. People make themselves worthy of respect.Old people get away with far too much bullshit because of this ridiculous notion that they should be respected just because they are "elders".It's just as bad as the "senior" discount crap. Not all seniors are low-income or poor. I see old people dripping in diamonds and gold and tailored clothing asking for discounts on a daily basis!
Wow..I am baffled that Mrs. Houston is referred to as an "attention whore"......#respect.
^The tribute was about Whitney, not her mother.
1:50, Whatever. Older people have lived longer and are able to share life experiences worthy of respect. You are a prime example of what's wrong with this current generation: Overall lack of respect.
Ms. Lee:I am not a millennial. I respect people as individuals for their contributions to society and for their individual experiences.All I am saying is that just being a senior citizen does not automatically make anyone worthy of respect.
BET is ass backwards anyway,HELLO. I don't think Cissy is an attention whore. Some of you hoes always have something bad to say about another female. The Virgin Mary could be in a post and ya'll would do thee most.I agree. Not all older people should have respect. Some of them are as crooked as they want to be. My grandmother is a straight up you know what. She talks about everyone including me and my siblings. She'll help people out and then talk about them. She put my mother through you know what. Too many older people want to tell some kid they don't even know to give them a ride,or boss them around. I am not a damn slave. People always want to keep some other group down. I have a natural style and some older lady looked at me at the phone store like I had eels on my damn scalp. B!tch,if you don't stop cutting your eyes at me! I use to be a fat kid. Every older person would tell me too. I knew about their other kids and women or abortions. If I would have broke that shit out,I would have been disrespectful.
10:30 & 10:38...You both are idiots and I can tell y'all have never stepped foot in a church unless it was a wedding, Easter, or a funeral. She sang because it was her daughter FOOLS! Singing was something they always did together. Why would it be better for any other person to pay tribute to HER daughter? Can you see how dumb that is?Anyway, I thought Cissy's tribute to her daughter was touching. It was one of my favorite moments.
^Now people start calling other people "heathens" for simply stating an opinion that differs from theirs.It is sad that Cissy Houston lost her daughter, but it is also sad that she and her husband left their children to basically raise themselves while she traveled around chasing her own dreams for fame.I would feel more empathetic if it wasn't for the fact that all THREE of her kids developed devastating drug habits. And now she is willing to sell Whitney out, yet again, to make a few dollars for herself by writing a tell-all book.The entire situation is truly sad.
Yoooooo, read the comments on this BET story from Yahoo. LMAohttp://news.yahoo.com/houston-tribute-obscenities-highlight-bet-awards-081333658.htmlHouston tribute, obscenities highlight BET Awards
BET knew EXACTLY what they were doing. They booked that hotel as a sign to Cissy that if she pushed a homicide investigation or talked too much about mysterious happenings surrounding Nippy’s death, the same thing would befall her.I fucking hate BET! I never watch the channel and the only reason why they manage to get real music lovers to watch the show is because they award all these shitty talentedless fucks but then go old school so you can watch LIVING LEGENDS like Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Prince, Diana Ross, EWF get Life Time Achievement Awards or tributes for Nippy and Mike. Otherwise, NOBODY would watch that shit because everyone knows that big name celebrities buy awards and then pay to have BET put the camera on them during the entire 3 and a half hours!I do not trust these murdering azz, Zionists Jew music industry, cheating fucks! BET is not “Black owned” and hasn’t been in years. They are owned by CBS which owns Viacom and MTV. That’s why they kept pushing the gay agenda last night with their highlights of Al Sharpton’s “support” of LGBT and Samuel L Jackson’s closing comments which included “African LGBT in Dufar” being attacked. Get the fuck out of here with that bullshit! Some of our people are so stupid, we don’t even know when we are being subliminally programed with this bullshit, which has nothing to do with music!But my point is that Bullshit Entertainment Television had me watching for 3 motherfucking hours trying not to miss the Whitney and Frankie Beverly/Maze tributes. Sneaky fucks putting all these weak azz rap on, keeping Whitney fans in suspense, hoping not to miss the tribute.I hope Cissy blast these fucks out the water. She did NOT sell daughter to Clive Davis. She loved her daughter and did the best she could. I’ll never believe that. It’s like Queen Aretha said, “she was left home with the right things but got lost along the way.”RIP Nippy.
BET wasn't thinking about Whitney when they book the room the thought about the before and after party..."just saying"
IT WAS OK I REALLY DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO SEE ANY OTHER STARS BECAUSE THE CAMERA STAYED ON THE FRONT ROW IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
10:30, watching paint dry is more entertaining.QUOTE:It was BET job to accommodate her accordingly she should not have come out of pocket or anything She had a right to be uncomfortable. 10:19 AM ====================Exactly!QUOTE 2:People do not deserve respect just because they are old. People earn the respect of others. People make themselves worthy of respect.=======================You are so wrong on this. While respect should be earned, our elders are entitled to respect because as a generation, they pave the way for others. The problem with our comm. is that we don't revere our elders as we should. They've forgotten more things than we know. Not every old person has wisdom, but many do. We've never been their age...they've been ours.This generation has no concept of social norms.
HmmReality showBook deal Bet tribute =Strong pimp handDont let age fool you
