You know something? Each year the BET Awards make me feel more and more out of touch with mainstream music. I mean I really try my best to keep up, but it seems like someone has broken the knob on the new rapper machine and it's just churning out new rappers all willy-nilly.
I mean the show kicked off with three guys that I have to admit I knew nothing about until my son told me they were Big Sean, Pusha T and some guy named 2 Chainz. It's really funny how I have to depend on my two teenage kids to tell me who some of these people are year after year. There's always somebody new performing.
For the first time, I was actually happy to see Kanye West because he was the only one I could identify. All I can say is that the 2012 BET Awards really made me miss the days of Michael Jackson and even Stevie Wonder. Their performances made great award shows.
As a matter of fact, the show even made me miss the days of M.C. Hammer. That guy could put on a show. (lol)

Calling all book lovers! Join me this Saturday for the What's Happening Myron Book Club!
I'm just about done reading "Fifty Shades of Grey" by E.L. James and I agree with the consensus when I say it is a very good read. This is actually the first book of three and it will keep you glued. If you haven't read it, don't worry. Just come on by and hang out with the rest of us as we discuss what we thought about this selection and choose what the next month's book will be as well.
We meet at McAlisters at Highland and Poplar this Saturday (July 7) at 4 p.m.
See you there!
