Madonna Prince Tribute Backlash
BET is responding to their shade on Madonna's tribute performance at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards this past Sunday. Madonna received a lot of backlash from Prince fans and social media about her performance. BET posted a trailer for the upcoming BET awards next month with the caption "Yeah We Saw That, Don't Worry, We Got You"
BET President Stephan Hill responded to their shady trailer saying that BET's tribute will be much bigger than what Billboard had to offer
“There’s no such thing as a “comprehensive” tribute to Prince." Hill wrote. "His music is too varied and vast; however, at the BET Awards on June 26, you can look forward to a multi-tiered, multi-generational, musician laden, expansive…and funky celebration of Prince’s music in line with our audience’s clear and expressed desires.”
Madonna, herself, also responded to criticism about her performance on Instagram
