Beyoncé Stuns Teyana Taylor and Victoria Monét with Praise for Usher Tribute at 2024 BET Awards



Beyoncé recently showed some love to Teyana Taylor and Victoria Monét for their tribute to Usher at the 2024 BET Awards, leaving the two singers ecstatic.

On Instagram Stories, Queen B reposted clips of Taylor and Monét performing Usher’s “Bad Girl” as part of a star-studded tribute to the R&B legend, which also featured Latto, Childish Gambino, and Keke Palmer, among others.

Former G.O.O.D. Music artist Taylor was thrilled by Beyoncé’s acknowledgment and expressed her excitement on social media.

“& DATS ON QUEEN BEYYYYYYYYYYYYY,” she wrote while reposting Beyoncé’s story. “I’M GAGGGGGGINGGGGGG!!! @victoriamonet get in here neowwwwww!!!”

Monét was equally stunned and commented:

“OOOOH MY GOD!!!! Na I AM SCREAMING!! WHATTT!!! CAN NOT GRASP AIR I AM UNWELL HOLY SHIT. I did not expect to pass out today! Gagged… completely.

“@beyonce we love you!!!!! THE ORIGINAL BAD GYAL!!! I will honor you forever. @teyanataylor WTFFFFF PINCH ME.”


The tribute celebrated Usher receiving BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

However, the event sparked controversy when the network censored large portions of Usher’s 13-minute acceptance speech due to his frequent cursing.

During his speech, Usher apologized for his language, saying, “I’m sorry I’m cursing, I just want to tell you all how I really feel.”

He also spoke about overcoming adversity: “There [were points when] motherfuckers weren’t fucking with me. But I get it, I understand — sometimes you’ve got to go through shit to get to something.”


Usher added: “[There was] nobody [saying], ‘You’re alright, this is what you do, you’re gonna like girls, you’re gonna go through shit.’”

BET later apologized for censoring the speech, citing technical problems.

“Due to an audio malfunction during the LIVE telecast, portions of his speech were inadvertently muted,” the network explained. “Celebrating global icon Usher on our stage with a star-studded tribute and having him accept his award with a heartfelt speech was an honor.

“We extend our sincere apologies to Usher as we couldn’t be more grateful for his participation in Culture’s Biggest Night.”
