With all the hoopla over Billboard’s decision to appoint Madonna to perform a Prince tribute at their 2016 awards ceremony, viewers tuned in to see if the “Material Girl” would deliver. Here’s what happened.  To open the highly anticipated performance, Questlove of the Roots gave a heartfelt introduction, which Madonna asked him to write. Madonna then appeared in a purple, ruffled Prince-esque ensemble on a purple throne to the opening monologue to Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy”. She then descended down the stairs singing the Prince song “Nothing Compares 2 U”, as solemn images flashed behind her.  A few images of Prince appeared during the instrumental break. Stevie Wonder later joined her on stage to sing “Purple Rain”. The performance drew mixed reactions from many via social media, including comedian Margaret Cho. That’s positive proof that you can’t please everyone. It’s almost that time of year: The 2016 BET Awards will air on Sunday, June 26, from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angles at 8 p.m. E.T. and the nominees have been announced. Drake, Beyoncé and Rhianna lead with multiply nominations, including Best Male Hip Hop Artist and Video of the Year for “Hotline Bling” and “Work”, his collaboration with Rhianna. Beyoncé and Rhianna are tied with five nominations each, including Best R&B/Pop Artist, Best Collaboration and Video of the Year (“Formation/”Work”). In addition, BET collaborated with choreographer Will  “WilldaBeast” Adams to create a high energy dance video to announced the Best Female Hip Hop Artist, Best Collaboration and Best Male Hip Hop Artist nominations. The video is well done and the event is sure to be an exciting one. To celebrate the release of his mixtape “Coloring Book”, Chance the Rapper transformed a warehouse in his hometown to create an immersive experience with dancers, art, a bounce house and more. Chance bussed a group of people to an undisclosed warehouse Saturday for his Magnificent Coloring World event, which was a massive play ground and listening party for children and adults alike. According to the Wall Street Journal, the all ages party included a choir, dancing, the sweets shop set from Donnie Trumpet & the Social Experiment’s “Sunday Candy” video, coloring activities, candy and plenty of games. Many reports regarding the event came in via social media, and it looks like the event was well attended.
