The recent 2011 BET Awards nominations seemed to hit home for a lot of talented artists in the R&B genre. With popular music snagging all the nods, artist like Trina, Tank and now Keyshia Cole continued to be puzzled after being looked over year over year.
“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,” Cole writes on Twitter following the announcement. “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.”
She also joke about her relevancy stating, “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 LOL”
The multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter Cole, who is promoting her latest album âCalling All Hearts,’ will join R. Kelly on his “Love Letter” tour, which kicks off June 2nd in Southaven, MS.
