Last night we had some great performances! Besides the MJ Tribute, my favorite would have to be either Diddy-Dirty Money and DJ Khaled (Hey I’m from the hood #don’tjudgeme) Here is a recap of the performers and presenters.

Nicki Minaj and Drak held it down for Young Money…I hated all of Nicki’s wigs! Gimmicks do not bring longevity. I did appreciate her speech (although it was LONG) she is obviously being the bigger person in this “Beef”

Where are you Yeezy? Well he was on top of a mountain. I understood the concept of his performance, not sure if it was executed as well as he would have thought. It was good to see him back on stage after his hiatus and I ABSOLUTELY love this song! It is #2 on my playlist (B.o.B  “Airplanes” is #1)

Monica’s bat/gargoyle wings #FAIL, Alicia looked lovely, Keyshia’s 22″ mullett #FAIL, Ciara was on point.

T.I. and Travis Barker killed it! Diddy-Dirty Money (and the crew) killed it too, I’m glad Eminem is back! I wish I was going to the “Renegade Concert” with Em and Hov 🙁

This past Sunday, I attended Hot97’s Summer Jam concert. I swore back in 2006 I would never go to Summer Jam, but this year’s line up was crazy. There were performances by Juelz Santana, Gucci Mane and Wacka Flocka, Fabolous, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, Usher, Trey Songz, Ludacris, and a host of special guests (Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, Vado, Lloyd Banks, Baby, T-Pain and more.)

I actually missed the first hour and a half because of traffic. A 40 minute trip actually took me about 3 1/2hrs and don’t get me started about my 4hr ride home.

All in all I had a great time at the concert. I was disappointed in some of the performers, Nicki Minaj being one of them. She was really boring. I am not a fan and I was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, but she has ZERO stage presence, Drake was pretty dry also smh. Trey Songz, Luda, Usher, and DJ Khaled (before he brought the hood out on stage *literally*) all did an excellent job. Here are a few pics:

This was at the end of the night….the wind got a hold on my pony tail..smh. I wore a pair of black culotte shorts (they are so comfy) and this black and white vintage print top with some black wedged sandals.


I was expecting a lot more from these two. Nicki Minaj’s shoe game is crazy!!! But I think that is what limits her performances because she can’t move in the shoes! She has to do better…

Trey delivered a great show…as usual. Some lucky fan actually got to go on stage with him! He sang all of his hits from Ready and gave an R rated sex demonstration…smh. Only Trey

I must say that DJ Khaled had one of the best song performances of the night. “All I Do Is Win” had the stadium rocking. all 55,000 hands went up and they stayed there (literally). Then he brought out the entire hood. There had to be at leat 100 goons on stage smh. Ludacris also had a great performance. He performed many of his hits and of course Nicki Minaj come out and they did “My Chick Bad.”

I was extremely excited to see Usher because I had never seen him in concert. I was upset at this little 35 minute teaser! I wanted more! He is truly talented! He is definitely one of the greatest performers. He performed many of my favorites like “Nice and Slow” “You Make Me Wanna” and of course my two favorite songs right now “OMG” and “There Goes My Baby.”

Despite missing the first few acts, I had a really great time.
