There Was So Much Black Excellence Slaying On The 2018 BET Awards Red Carpet

It's official. We are renaming Black Entertainment Television. After tonight, it is deemed BLACK EXCELLENCE TELEVISED.

The star power that gleamed from Hollywood during tonight's awards show was undeniable. I absolutely love the BET Awards because the space is black AF. Every other awards show highlights the dopeness that is our culture but rarely acknowledges the beings that create that dopeness. Thank God for the BET Awards being the exception to the rule.

Tonight was dedicated to celebrating all of the achievements in entertainment made by melanin individuals. By honoring the musical greats, sports warriors, television aficianados and movie mavens, BET has harbored a community of pure eminence.

I am living for the fact that tonight was blacker than the ESSENCE Festival and you can't get more blacker than that.

Of course, our eyes were peeled on the red carpet for the fashion forward celebs, so take a look at some of our favorite looks from tonight:

Is Once Ever Enough To See Beyoncé's "Renaissance World Tour?"

Many have wondered if one time is ever enough to see Queen Bey. Some argue yes. However, many of us on the opposite end of the spectrum, including myself, would disagree. Beyoncé's "Renaissance World Tour" is a universal yet varying experience for everyone who attends. In the words of Oprah Winfrey, the concert is "transcendent." For millennials, we have over two decades of her catalog that has served as the soundtrack for many of our lives and painted a personal portrait of our most coveted thoughts. Her music provides mental clarity and self-expression by serving as a universal language that has united fans from all walks of life through community, fashion, self-acceptance, and healing.
