Should Trina Really Be Upset About Getting Snubbed A BET Awards Nom?

News

By: Tray Hova / May 18, 2011

BET recently stabbed a couple girls’ hearts when they dropped the nominees for this year’s BET Awards. Keyshia Cole (who was also fronted a seat at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards) mentioned on Twitter that the news came as an awkward memo that she’s no longer hot in the public’s eye (yikes!) while Trina ditched the longwinded reply going with a simple “Fuck BET” tweet. But why’s the baddest bitch, bitchin?

Perhaps you’re like us who first thought Trina’s sore retort was a bit ludicrous. Because really to keep it realler than most, nothing popped with the thick one these last 365. But alas let’s have a looks at the nominated chicks for Best Female Hip Hop Artist:

Nicki Minaj
Diamond (??)
LoLa Monroe(???)
Cymphonique (????)

Okay so T has a bit of a point. But how much pandering can BET do when everyone, including them, knows who’s going snatch the trophy anyway? Might as well swivel in different female MCs so they can upgrade their resumes wirth a nom. 

Si, no, maybe so?
