Beyonce: PISSED at BET Awards Lauryn Hill Diss

by at . Comments

Boy band Mindless Behavior flat out dissed Lauryn Hill on live TV last night, and the joke apparently upset Beyonce, one of the 2012 BET Award winners, to the point where she changed her acceptance speech to honor The Fugees singer.

The diss went down womedian Mike Epps and the guys from Mindless Behavior were all getting set to co-present the award for Best R&B Artist.

Mike, who can't carry a tune to save his life, jokingly tried to sing. One of the dudes said, "You sing BAD ... like Lauryn Hill's tax accountant bad."

The zinger, a reference to Lauryn Hill's felony tax evasion case, elicited gasps from the crowd, including Beyonce, who was far from pleased.

Winning the award moments later, Bey said, "I want to thank all the talented R&B women that came before me like Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige."

As she walked off stage, she could be heard venting about the insult, saying the dude's Lauryn Hill joke was "disrespectful" and "not cool."

When a BET handler complimented Beyonce's shout-out to the maligned Hill, the "Halo" singer replied, "I just felt [the diss] was wrong."

What do you think of the Lauryn Hill diss?

I have never understood the draw to beyonce. the thrown she sits on and the credit she gets is not just. she sings loud and every song sounds the same. who cares how upset she gets about anything. her and her husband are over rated.

Beyonce called Taylor back on stage after the whole Kanye thing. Guess you missed the endless coverage of that. I don't think Lauryn Hill was dissed, I think her accountant was. The comment was harmless. Barely worth mentioning. B hasnt even made a comment about it. And Jawny- calling her a loser is laughable. You're a small minded, angry little person.

Mindless Behavior didn't write the jokes. Don't they have writers for these shows? What do they even know about tax accountants yet? The blame was displaced.

Why didnt beyonce get that pissed when Kanye jerked the microphone out of Taylor swifts hand? I guess its a black thing?

If BEY was so pissed- why doesnt she pay the tax bill? I hate that woman. Who the fuck cares what she thinks.
