Chris Brown

The nominations for the BET Awards 2011 has been announced and guess who tops the nominations….


Chris Brown.

I am a fan of his work as can be seen on  my post HERE I do not condone that “incident” that happened with Rihanna, but last time I checked, we are all entitled to a second chance (or 3rd or 4th).


He has done good with the F.A.M.E album and so glad to see him lead the field with 6 nominations.


Not to be left out with 5 nominations is Lil Wayne who squares off in the Best Male Hip-Hop category with Kanye West and Drake, both with four apiece, as well as B.o.B. and Rick Ross.

Not shirking her current reign on the top of the music scene in the female category, Rihanne leads the field with four nominations, including Best Female R&B Artist, Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice, and twice for Best Collaboration, for “What’s My Name” with Drake and West’s “All of the Lights.



Along with Rihanna, rounding out the Best Female R&B Artist race are Beyoncé, Keri Hilson, Jennifer Hudson and Marsha Ambrosius. Brown is up against Cee Lo Green, Bruno Mars, Trey Songz and Usher for Best Male R&B Artist.
