The 2016 BET Awards air this Sunday, and what would an award show be this year without acknowledgement of the late, great Prince?
Many fans complained about Madonna‘s tribute performance to the iconic star at this year’s Billboard Music Awards, and BET threw shade, insinuating they have something so much better planned and tweeting, “Yeah, We saw that. Don’t worry. We Got You.”
It was recently announced that Stevie Wonder will join BET’s Prince tribute performance, along with Prince’s former fiancée and protegé Sheila E. Sheila told ET, “It’s about his legacy. Those songs, he left them for us forever. They are forever embedded in all of us, and I think we’re going to have a wonderful time.”
During the interview, Ms. E also showed off a new tattoo of a butterfly – a symbol of her eternal love for Prince – telling the site, “I’m carrying him now.” Along with Stevie and Sheila E, the BET tribute lineup includes The Roots, D’Angelo, and Janelle Monae.
The BET Awards will air live on Sunday, June 26, at 8 p.m.
