Oh my gosh, how did Janelle Monae manage to have a powerful, touching tribute to Prince AND show off her bare butt at the same time? She’s a goddess, that’s why! The singer showed respect for the icon in the most appropriately inappropriate way ever. Here’s the scoop.
Janelle Monae, 30, is bae! The amazing singer proved how talented she is on the BET Awards stage on June 26 when she paid tribute to a true music legend, Prince! And she did it by flashing her whole booty on stage! We have all the details, right here.
There were several Prince tributes at the June 26 BET Awards, but Janelle’s was definitely our favorite… and not just because Janelle flashed her whole butt! While that was definitely part of it, her amazing voice and tons of energy while performing Prince’s legendary song “Kiss” are what made the performance powerful, emotional, and memorable.
The talented singer took the stage dressed in an all white pantsuit with a long flowing train while a girl in all black did a super sexy dance beside her. Eventually, Janelle whipped around, yanked off the cover up and showed off her bare booty through cutouts in her pants. While it was sexy, it was also meaningful because Prince famously showed off his derriere in a similar fashion years ago. So cool!

However, there was another booty that had us even more excited than Janelle’s – Anthony Anderson’s! He poked fun at the trend himself after the performance by showing his cheeks the light of day on stage, and it was too hilarious! This year’s BET Awards was definitely one for the record books!
