Kanye West Made A Surprise Appearance At The BET Awards Last Night
During last night’s BET Awards, Sean “Diddy” Combs (or Love Combs, or Stay Puff, whatever his name is) received a Lifetime Achievement award, and honestly, the musical tribute to him was one of the best parts of the show. Then, after Diddy’s tribute ended Kanye West joined the stage. And that’s when the night took a huge turn into the toilet for me.
Prior to Diddy’s segment, the show was replete with everything we’ve come to expect from the BET Awards; ass, titties, music breaks, more ass and titties, and people who make you ask “Who the hell is that?” A masterpiece, as always. And every year an artist gets honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award so this year’s recipient was Diddy. Some of the acts he’s produced and worked with over the years shimmied onstage to coo and cater to him through song like Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, and more. Here is the full tribute:
Then, Babyface came out to say a few words about Diddy. But according to People , before Babyface ended his speech he introduced Kanye who was dressed like a homeless version of Bane and was ready to terrorize us all with his circle jerk words of praise for Diddy.

Although Kanye could barely breathe through the mask, he still found the strength to ignore the teleprompter and say nice words about Diddy while also throwing in a line about Kim Kardashian.
“How do we crown our kings? How do we appreciate our kings?” West — whose face was completely covered in a hat, shades and black mask — said onstage.
“I go to him for advice to this day. He inspires so many of my choices, so many of my life choices. My wife choices,” West continued, referencing his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, before adding with a laugh: “Thanks for that, Puff.”
“You know, I took a little hiatus. I said, I just want to declare myself legally dead for a year. I just want to be off the grid and Puff is pretty persistent, but I had to think, bro, it’s like, people get amnesia. Like I should never have Puff have to ever call more than one time. Any of us in this room if Puff ever need us, we need to jump and be there. This man has been through [and] survived a lot of stuff and broke down a lot of doors so we can be standing … he broke down so many doors of classism, taste, swag. Puff, if I never told you I love you, you’re my brother,” said West.
Translation: “I know I’ve been acting an entire fool for years my fellow Black people. BUT I’M BACK! And Puffy’s my friend. Please forgive me.” NOPE. After all the crazy shit this dude has said in the past few years it’s going to take a lot more than kissing Diddy’s ass at the BET Awards to get me back onboard. And yes, I immediately turned it off after Kanye’s speech because I was afraid Kim would come out next wearing SKIMS and a Bad Boy 4 Life t-shirt.
