Ready for a big night in the entertainment world, the 2011 BET Awards are all set to take place in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday night (June 26).
Held at the Shrine Auditorium, this year's BET Awards are being hosted by actor/comedian Kevin Hart while featuring performances by Beyonce Knowles, Drake, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Mary J Blige, among many others.
Sitting down to talk with MTV News, the “A Milli” rapper told of Drake, "The first thing I said was this kid's a superstar. I don't think you can remember, but I did some interviews back then when they were asking me about him and I said he's better than me. I can't sing. I can make a song, but this kid has the actual R&B presence.”
Spending her 23rd birthday tending to center spotlight performing duties, Rihanna offered up a sizzling halftime show during the 2011 NBA All-Star Game at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday (February 20).
The Barbadian beauty took the stage as she kicked things off with a rendition of her career-launching single "Umbrella" before transitioning into her hot new hit "Only Girl In the World".
