Chris Brown is the latest artist to jump in the studio and record a remix to Drake’s Marvins Room. Without a doubt, Chris Brown is having an amazing week and its only Tuesday! He started out the week winning five BET awards out of six nominations total and now he has released a clever version to Drake’s already brilliant track. Unselfish Brown, featured friend and fellow artist, Kevin McCall on the track as well. What are your thoughts? We’re sure Team Breezy is quite thrilled with the song.

The most talked about incident that happened during the BET Awards last night wasn’t a performance, or even a segment from the show’s host, funny-man Kevin Hart – but a slip-up from contest winner Tiffany Green who allegedly ‘misread’ the teleprompter while presenting The Viewer’s Choice Award to Chris Brown…then Rihanna…and finally, Drake for his collaboration with Rih-Rih for “What’s My Name”.  Yikes.

Here’s the video:

Green then used Twitter to put BET on blast for setting her up; which is in reference to her previous rants, and threats… towards Chris Brown earlier in the month, as well as right before the show.  Karma? Or just a crazy coincidence?

BET’s executive producer, Stephen Hill later offered his apologies by tweeting,

“That BET Awards Viewer’s Choice mix-up was due to human error,” Hill states. “And I was the human that made that error. I apologize to ALL affected.”

Look for screen caps of Green’s tweets after the break.

For last night’s BET Awards, celebs came out dressed to impress – and some, not so much, for the “show before the show”, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

The BET Green carpet arrivals were the best way to get up close and personal with your favorite stars before the show; aside from talking about the winners of the night, you’re also going to want to see what they wore!  Hits included, Kerry Washington (who chose a yellow Michael Kors dress with all black Louboutin’s – fave of the night),  Alicia Keys (black and white Dolce & Gabbana menswear suit, with zebra print Louie’s), Nia Long (what a stunning baby glow she had in that white gown!), Idris Elba, and Diggy Simmons (they grow up FAST, don’t they?!).  The green carpet showcased some fab outfits, but of course – there can’t be a ying with no yang…the absolute misses included, Drake – who apparently just cannot get it together; Amber Rose (guilty by association?), and Lloyd (lawwd…).

Hopefully things get better next year for the failures of the night – look for more pictures after the break.
