About a "Girl" Who Refused to Just Shut up and Take Orders

You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.

What to Watch: 2009 Soul Train Awards

Comments (12)




Although this year's annual 'Soul Train Awards' is set to air later this month, the star-studded event is already garnering lots of attention.

Academy Award nominees Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard served as hosts of the popular awards show, celebrating achievements in black music.

Beyonce -- who was a no-show to the awards -- won three awards, while Keith Sweat, Ginuwine, Raheem DeVaughn, Kandi Burruss and Brian McKnight all covered some of The Gap Band's most notable classics. (Other winners listed below.)

Chaka Khan's memorable tribute performance featured Erykah Badu, Melle Mel, Ledisi, Fantasia and Angie Stone, who all took the stage for renditions of 'Through the Fire' and 'Tell Me Something Good.'

One of the show's most talked about moments came during an intimate performance between Trey Songz and Toni Braxton. The pair, who performed Braxton's latest single, 'Yesterday,' capped off their appearance with a rather intimate French kiss, which some are speculating led to Braxton's recent split from husband Keri Lewis.

The two-hour ceremony will also honor the late, great Michael Jackson -- who has won six Soul Train awards throughout his career -- with the special 2009 Entertainer of the Year Award.

Officially titled "Centric Presents: 2009 Soul Train Awards Show," the event will premiere simultaneously on the new BET spin-off channel, Centric, and BET on Nov. 29 at 9 p.m. ET. Centric went live on Sept. 28 via digital cable and satellite-cable carriers.
