When the nominations for the BET Awards 2011 were announced yesterday, Keyshia Cole and Trina didn’t hear their names called. Now the ladies are speaking out after being excluded.
The “Let It Go” songstress, who starred in the BET reality show “The Way It Is,” didn’t bear any ill will toward the awards show despite her snub in all categories including Best Female R&B Artist.
“Its like this. Been on the scene 7 years. I was 21 when I got signed. 7 # 1 records. No awards 4 none of them/still touring. It is Wht it is,” tweeted Keyshia. “These types of thing R the way they R. I’m not upset about any of it in any way. I hope everyone that goes has a wonderful time.”
While Keyshia was restrained with her feelings, Trina’s response was more brash. “fuck BET……” fired off an upset Trina.
The Miami rapper was excluded in the category of Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, although she released her album Amazin’ last year. The nominees who will compete in that category are Nicki Minaj, Cymphonique, LoLa Monroe, and Diamond, who shared her fellow femcee’s pain.
“Shout out to my big sis @TRINArockstarr she has always been my idol! I don’t knw wut happen wit the nominations.. But she raised all of US!” wrote Diamond.
UPDATE: After sleeping on it, Keyshia added her thoughts about the snub, tweeting, “That awkward moment when u realize in everyone’s eyes your not the sh*t anymore. #POW. I’ve officially got the memo. Thank mtv/bet.”
Do you think Keyshia Cole and Trina were robbed of their nominations?
