WTF? 10 Off-The-Wall 2012 BET Awards Predictions

Back in February, we made 10 Off-The-Wall Grammy Award Predictions that we thought were pretty solid. But, as it turns out, we were dead $^%&!#@ wrong on every single one of them (who knew Nicki Minaj would show up with the "Pope"?!). And, we're determined not to make the same mistake again! So, with the 2012 BET Awards set to air on Sunday night from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, we thought long and hard before we decided to make any predictions. The result of all of our thinking is this list that includes 10 Off-The-Wall BET Awards Predictions that we guarantee will be right on Sunday night. Hey, there's no way we can possibly do as bad as we did back in February again, right? Er, right?!—Chris Yuscavage

Prediction #1: Host Samuel L. Jackson will yell. A lot.
Is this a little bit of a layup? Of course it is! But, didn't you hear what we said in the intro to this list? We went 0-for-10 with our Grammy Award predictions. 0-FOR-FREAKING-10! We can't afford to get off to a slow start. So, please, Samuel L.: You love to yell, so YELL! YELL AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN!!!!!!!

Prediction #2: D'Angelo will be at the top of the Trending Topics list for a month after the BET Awards air.
Do you have any idea how long we've been waiting for D'Angelo to start performing again? YEARS! We bet you have, too. And, now, after all those years, he's finally making a comeback. If that doesn't get people talking—about his voice, about how he looks, about his choice of outfit—we don't know what will.

Prediction #3: Cissy Houston will single-handedly cause Twitter to crash—and force everyone watching the BET Awards to spend their night flooding their Facebook timelines.
D'Angelo will be big on Twitter. No doubt about it. But, Whitney Houston's mom is gonna be HUGE. She's set to pay tribute to her late daughter on stage at the BET Awards, which will no doubt cause a ton of Twitter traffic. So much, in fact, that we wouldn't be surprised to see the entire site crash as soon as she sings her first note. Hopefully BET saves her performance for the end. Otherwise, Facebook might go down, too.

Prediction #4: Skip Bayless will present LeBron James with the "Subway Sportsman of the Year" award.
Talk about shutting down Twitter! This would almost be too perfect...

Prediction #5: No one will ask Chris Brown or Meek Mill whether they have any beef while they're both backstage getting ready for their BET Awards performances.
Wishful thinking?

Prediction #6: Kim Kardashian will wear the same dress that she wore to a Lakers game with Kanye West last month.
More wishful thinking?

Prediction #7: Somehow, someway, Rick Ross will end up topless on the BET stage.
No more wishful thinking. Put the kids to bed. This could get ugly.

Prediction #8: 2 Chainz will perform 22 times.
After looking at the list of BET Awards performers, it's pretty clear that 2 Chainz is going to be performing a lot on Sunday night. Is there anyone on that list that he doesn't have a song with? Maybe Yolanda Adams. But, hey: There's still time between now and Sunday night to make that happen. What do ya say, Yolanda?!

Prediction #9: Someone other than Nicki Minaj will win the "Best Female Hip Hop Artist" award.
Hey, we said these predictions would be "off-the-wall," didn't we? So, we're gonna go with…Diamond! Er, no. We mean Trina! No, no, no. Actually, let's choose Brianna Perry. Yeah, that sounds right. Final answer. She's DEFINITELY going to win over Miss Minaj! (No, we won't put any money on this one. Sorry!)

Prediction #10: Oh, and sorry to ruin the surprise, but…Nicki Minaj will walk down the red carpet with the "Pope" again.
Nice try, Nicki. But, we're not falling for this one again! So, how'd we do? A perfect 10-for-10—or what?

In addition to the “Money” rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardi’s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine what shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.

Romeo May Have Landed A Role In 'Bad Boys For Life'

Bad Boys 3 is officially going down, and there's going to be a lot of new changes. The biggest change seems to be major additions to the film's cast. In fact, Romeo Miller recently hopped on social media on Tuesday (Dec. 11), suggesting that he could be the newest addition to the Bad Boys team.

Romeo shared a photo of an email for a callback to the Bad Boys set on his Instagram Stories on Dec. 11. "When you get callbacks and opportunity to work alongside your idols, @martinlawrence and @willsmith, you go study and go ghost," the rapper-turned-actor said, mentioning stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith.

Romeo isn't the only hip-hop star to possibly land a role in the forthcoming movie. Nicky Jam also suggested he was going out for a part during an interview with TMZ in Nov. 2018. "I actually came her because I'm doing a casting for a movie," he said at the time.

As previously reported Will Smith and Martin Lawrence announced that the third installment of the Bad Boys franchise is finally happening after years of negotiating. The upcoming film, entitled, Bad Boys For Life, is expected to premiere in Jan. 2020.

Check out Romeo's post below.

'Selena: The Series' Is Headed To Netflix

It's been more than 20 years since Selena Quintanilla's senseless death, but the singer's fans and family have done their part to keep her memory and legacy alive. With the hope of introducing the Grammy-award winner to a new generation, Netflix has ordered a Selena series to live on the streaming platform.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Quintanilla family will produce what is being described as a coming of age story for the model, actress and fashion designer. It's unclear how many episodes will be in the series and if it'll be 30 minutes or an hour.

"Selena will always have a lasting place in music history and we feel great responsibility to do justice to her memory. With this series, viewers will finally get the full history of Selena, our family, and the impact she has had on all of our lives, Selena's sister Suzette Quintanilla said in a statement. "We are excited to partner with Campanario and Netflix to give fans a never-before-seen glimpse at our story and highlight why Selena will remain a legend for generations to come."

Selena began her musical career in the 1980s often performing at festivals in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas. She quickly rose to fame and earned a Grammy in 1994 for best Mexican/American album, becoming the first female Tejano singer to do so.

In 1995, Selena was shot and killed by Yolanda Saldivar who managed her fan club after it had been discovered she was embezzling money. Saldivar was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. The singer's life then made it to the big screen in 1997, with Jennifer Lopez starring in the principal role.
