THE 2007 BET AWARDS: BET JAZZ COOL LIKE THAT, BEST FEMALE ATHLETE, BEST MALE ATHLETE, AND BEST GOSPEL ARTIST

BET JAZZ COOL LIKE THAT: GERALD LEVERT
NOMINEES: MUSIQ SOULCHILD » ERIC ROBERSON » ELISABETH WITHERS » BRIAN MCKNIGHT

The next set of winners unfortunately didn’t get any camera time. The show ran over and didn’t have enough time to formally announce them, so these awards were announced before a commercial break. The BET JAZZ COOL LIKE THAT award was rightfully given to the late Gerald Levert – rest in peace, and BEST FEMALE ATHLETE was given to (you already know) Serena Williams, whom I must add, HAS BEEN LOOKING GOOD lately! Definite upgrade from that picture with her and The Grinch at the top of this current layout. BEST MALE ATHLETE went to *yawn* Lebron James – I can’t stand that dude, or his team. I’m glad the Spurs took home the win for this year’s NBA Playoffs. I personally believe my homeboy Dwayne Wade deserved the award, or even Tiger Woods … but Lebron James? Ah well, can’t cry over spilled milk. Anyhow, the award for BEST GOSPEL ARTIST went to Kirk Franklin, who seems to win everything now-a-days, but I ain’t mad atcha Kirk! HERO is still in heavy rotation on my iPod. Good album!! THE LAST SET OF AWARDS WILL BE UP IN A BIT … HOLD TIGHT!
