Gabourey Sidibe's New Crush

Gabourey Sidibe’s New Crush. Move over Justin Timberlake; “Precious” star Gabourey Sidibe has eyes for another pop star, Trey Songz. ”I’m super crushing on Trey Songz,” she told PEOPLE. “I used to listen to his music when I worked in an office, and when I met him a few weeks ago, I couldn’t contain my excitement.” Instead of playing it cool with the soul singer, Sidibe gushed, “Now that we go to the same events you think I’m cool, right? Do you want to date? We could just get married?” The Oscar nominated actress, 27, has never been shy about publicly declaring her love, especially about her crush on Timberlake. When JT first announced her name as a Golden Globe nominee, Sidibe’s initial response was not about the nod. “Oh my God, Justin Timberlake just said my name,” she reacted, reported PEOPLE.    So when it comes to men, what speacial quality is it that attracts the promising actress?  
“I like smart men,” she says, “Smart men with grown up jobs who share my unusually sense of humor.”

Chris Brown Breaks Down, Alicia Keys Wins At 2010 BET Awards. Chris Brown got to participate in the Michael Jackson tribute at the BET Awards after all. It was, however, a year later than the other stars. After his participation was refused at least year’s awards following the highly-publicized domestic “Disturbia” with Rihanna, Brown took the stage for a tribute to King of the Pop which left him, and audiences, in tears. Just two days after the anniversary of his death, brother Jermaine Jackson introduced Brown as he danced to MJ classics like “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Remember the Time,” “Billie Jean,” and “Smooth Criminal.” Brown made some of the biggest news of the night after falling to his knees for a reflective, tearful rendition of “Man in the Mirror.” The audience helped him finish the cover with a sing-along. Brown also picked up the Fandemonium Award later in the show. “I just want to say, I let you all down before and I won’t do it again,” he told the audience. Kanye West opened the show with an appropriately powerful performance of his new single, “Power.” Alicia Keys performed a medley of hits including “No One,” “Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart,” and “Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready)” before picking up awards for Best Female R&B Artist and for Best Collaboration with Jay-Z for “Empire State of Mind.”Nicki Minaj picked up two awards for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist and Best New Artist. Beyonce and Lady Gaga took home the award for Video of the Year for “Video Phone,” while Rihanna took home the Viewer’s Choice Award” for her video “Hard” with Young Jeezy. John Legend was given this year’s Humanitarian Award, previously awarded to stars like Wyclef Jean, while Prince was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez Earn BET Award Nominations

The BET Awards are getting a little more inclusive this year. While Jay-Z leads the pack of nominations, followed by Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Trey Songz, and Melanie Fiona, there’s also a nod for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. No need to adjust your screens. Bieber earned a nomination for Best New Artist. He’s up against Melanie Fiona, Nicki Minaj, Wale, and Young Money. Bieber has appeared on BET as his popularity started to rise, including performing his single “Baby” on the network’s “106 & Park” and participating in their “SOS Help For Haiti Benefit.” Gomez earns her nomination for the YoungStars Award, where she’s up against Keke Palmer, Lil JJ, Willow Smith, and Tyler James Williams. Unlike the Biebs, I’m not sure the words “Selena” and “Gomez” have been uttered together on BET. The 2010 BET Awards, airing Sunday, June 27th on BET, will feature performances Drake, Diddy, Nicki Minaj, Trey Songz, and others yet to be announced. Grammy Award-winner and Oscar nominee Queen Latifah has been tapped to host.   “We are thrilled that Queen Latifah is going to host the BET AWARDS ’10,” said Stephen Hill, President of Music Programming and Specials for BET. “Her versatility as a performer perfectly matches the dynamism of our show. This will be the perfect 10. Get ready for stirring performances, a surprise that will knock you out and massive quantities of fun; all helmed by ‘The Queen.’” Other than possible appearances by Bieber and Gomez, the 10th anniversary of the BET Awards is also sure to feature some major surprises. Some past memorable performances include TLC, SWV, and EnVogue hitting the stage together, a reunion of The Fugees, a hosting stint from Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith, and last year’s emotional tribute to Michael Jackson.
