Beyoncé was not announced to perform at the BET Awards last night. As we’ve seen, surprise is her thing. And the song she chose to surprise with to open the show was Freedom.

There was a distraction from the Grammys on Sunday. It distracted me for almost half an hour. Twitter too, it seems, because it was trending for a while… A red band trailer for Straight Outta Compton was released. Have you seen it yet? It opens with Dre and Ice Cube returning home, talking about what it was like, then, and featuring some of the current faces of hip-hop, like The Game and an adorable Kendrick Lamar, talking about how NWA influenced their careers, their lives, the business. Full Story
