The Drake & Lil Wayne Performance with “the dancers”
In 2009, we were all dealing with the untimely passing of Michael Jackson. BET was forced to deal with that along with all of their other scheduled performances, which included a performance from Drake and Lil Wayne. The first problem was that they performed “Every Girl in the World” which was pretty explicit and consequently, almost every other line was bleeped out. But towards the end of the performance, Wayne’s then 10 year old daughter and her friends came on stage to dance to the song. That immediately caused a wave of fury not only to the artists but to BET as well. Drake addressed it by apologizing and saying it was a terrible decision as a whole. For its part, BET said that things happened during the performance that simply shouldn’t have. Yep, we know.
