Billboard Music Awards: 2016 web highlights

Stevie Wonder & Madonna perform a tribute to Prince

Apparently, the Billboard Music Awards were so good, that this blogger couldn’t decide which video was to lead, so All of them were used.  The highlight for me was when Stevie Wonder and Madonna performed a tribute to Prince.

Granted, the L.A. Times article asked whether he would have approved? Well, not the way they changed the genre from pop to gospel. It also said it would have ‘disturbed’ him because of the way they mouthed the words to his songs. Both stars had great voices so why did they do this?

Instagram rant in bad taste

Of course, Entertainment Tonight had the best, worst and weirdest moments of Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. This was what wasn’t understood by me, because on the same page, Justin Bieber had a lot of negative comments he tiraded about on Instagram. This was what he said after winning for his performance of “Sorry“:

“I don’t know about these award shows,” Bieber admitted in a lengthy Instagram rant on Monday. “No disrespect to anybody at any of the shows or the people running it. Nothing but love for you guys and your support. But I don’t feel good when I’m there nor after.”

If he didn’t want to be there, he could have recorded his performance and the acceptance speech if he won as well as designated someone to speak on his behalf. Even though he made a total fool out of himself later, this was SO rude. It was still somewhat disrespectful to me. Like Barbara Walters comment about Sean Penn, this blogger could also excuse his youth.
