It was a sooooulful Sunday, thanks in large part to the Soul Train Awards. But, as with any awards show, what happened during the telecast was only a fraction of the good stuff.
Erykah Badu hit the stage as the host and brought a little snark with her along the way. The awards show was all about Soul, no rap allowed, so when Iggy Azalea fake called Ms. Badu asking if she could attend, Erykah responded, “You can come because what you’re doing is definitely not rap.” The internet lost it’s mind and it was quite entertaining.
OK, so yes, Erykah, did shade the hell out of Iggy. And yes, it was funny. But it’s not the only thing that happened. There was of course some soulful performances. Just take a look at R&B legends Boyz II Men, Fantasia, Brandy, Bobby Brown and Tevin Campbell all unite with Legend Award honoree Babyface for a tribute.
But, before the celebs hit the stage or grabbed their seats, HipHollywood caught up with them on the red carpet – and of course, they gave us the good stuff. Chrisette Michele dished wedding deets, Lion Babe’s Jillian Hervey talked about her mom, Vanessa Williams, Silento revealed music plans, plus so much more.
