Holy Moly ladies, hold tight to your seats.
I don't know how I missed this at the time but I didn't watch the BET Awards.
Now like 99% of women across the world, I love Maxwell. Not necessarily him, but his music. That guy is just 100% talent. He had most of us with Urban Hang Suite. An absolute classic album, that has gone platinum at least twice. And it is a must have for anyone that loves their hot buttered sexual chocolate aural satisfaction as smooth as a baby's bum. But in the far more appealing package of a tall, half Haitian half Puerto Rican Musical genius called Maxwell Rivera.
But I digress.
Anyway the 21st century Marvin Gaye, performed at the BET awards this year. (and I catch wind of this 3 MONTHS LATER?!). A supremely fabulous bit of marketing to launch his almost sold out mini tour across America. Tickets are starting at $150 and almost sold out....isn't that something.
At the BET awards this year, there was a big Al green tribute, which again seems to have skipped my attention.
But Maxwell definitely got the longest straw as he did an amazing rendition of Simply Beautiful.
Dude has gotten friendly with some clippers as he's looking all clean cut and grown up and not so emotionally fraught as before. And was that a wedding ring I spotted? AND he's still got some moves. Not old-man-trying-to-be-young dance moves, the I'm-so-indisputably-permanently-hot I don't need to try dance moves.
Now apart from the fact that its Maxwell and this was his first live performance in about 6 years. Simply Beautiful by Al Green is one my most favouritest songs EVER. No joke.
Normally I'd say all these chumps today need to leave the greats like Al Green and Marvin Gaye alone....but S.D.M.F. Maxwell did an amazing job.
