2011 BET Awards Nominations

The BET Awards 2011 nominee list seems to be pretty good over all. Some of the categories and nominees were a bit outlandish. Why is Beyonce' and Rihanna, nominated for Best Female R&B? Beyonce’ didn’t put out a single this year, she has no video that’s being on played on BET so what song is she nominated for? Instead of having Bey and RiRi on this list, we could have had Monica, Jazmine Sullivan, Keyshia Cole, or Chrisette Michele! Why wasn’t Trina’s name in the Best Female Hip Hop Category? When did Bruno Mars start singing R&B and why doesn’t he ever come on R&B/Hip Hop Stations....hmmmmm when is the last time Bruno been on 106nPark? I’m loving that Travis Porter is in the Best Group Category, They deserve it.
