Meagan Good had some Christian folk gasping for air when she showed up to the 2013 BET awards in a gorgeous glove fitting, Michael Costello gown with a v-cut plunging neckline. The actress would not have received so much backlash from the Christian community if she wasn’t married to Devon Franklin who just so happens to be a preacher. That would of course make Meagan a First Lady. Meagan not only received backlash for wearing the gown though.
Folks also felt as though it was disrespectful for the Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man actress to present the Best Gospel award in such a revealing gown. Since then the singer has kept quiet up until one of her fans supported her decision to wear the dress via instagram and Meagan posted it up. The Meagan Good fan came to Meagan’s defense by saying:
I love it!!!!! Go head Meagan, keep making people start the conversations and confront their religiosity and judgemental spirits forgetting what they have been redeemed from…Love conquers a multitude of sins and your love stance will continue to reveal the difference between the Kingdom of God (righteousness, joy, peace motivated by love) vs Religion! #kingdomfriend #igetit
After a number of folks began attacking Meagan even more under the photo she defended herself by commenting back and saying
… I don’t feel convicted about this at all .,my spirit is saddened that our people only know one way to think and process things.. I’m not any less holy because the dress I wore -I may not be who people think I should be -but I’m morphing into exactly who God wants me to be.. My excuse is never “I’m going to do me” and I don’t feel that I need to make an excuse or defend or what I wore .. I know I have a responsibility -and I’m working daily to fulfill the full potential of all God has created me to be.. A dialogue was started about my character, integrity, my walk with God and my Husband -simply based on a dress that I wore.., Of course I’m going to have a reaction to people saying negative things… It’s just sad.. Makes me sad not regretful.. My heart and spirit is always open to whatever my Father would want to share with me… And my spirit tells me to be exactly who I authentically am -because that’s what’s going to reach who I was authentically designed to touch.. people like me who are often misunderstood and told their cut of God’s promise -because they don’t look the role …when God doesn’t care about us “looking the role”..he is always cared about bringing us in -and us being whatever we need to be to bring Those left out in .. And it just makes me sad that us as Christians can’t see beyond our initial reaction and don’t seek God before the attack other brothers and sisters …and never think for one moment that: God knows what he’s doing and he uses everything for his glory .. and he has a plan for every specific situation.. I had intentions on anything .. Merely picked a dress I saw and loved … God knows my heart and that I didn’t do anything wrong .. And he will use even people’s thoughts to bring him glory.
Do you think Megan’s dress was appropriate for the occasion or not ?
While Rihanna’s ex boo Chris Brown was just out with his ex girlfriend Karrueche during the BET Awards Rihanna could probably care less. The songstress is over in Paris and has been rubbing elbows with Vogue editor and chief Anna Wintour and creative director for fashion house Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld. Thats big business!
Yesterday, running off of no hours of sleep Rihanna attended the Chanel Haute Couture fashion show draped in Chanel from head to toe. Rih captioned one of her photos
Went straight to the Chanel Couture show early this morning with NO SLEEP!!! It was so worth it!!!
We bet !
And she always has her bestie Melissa right by her side. Speaking of her bestie, a video of Rihanna twerking to Drake’s verse in Fuc-ing Problems was leaked by Melissa and has made its way online. Watch it below.
We find it quite odd that she she was dancing on Drake’s verse and not 2 Chainz or A$AP Rocky’s. Hmmm, let us find out she throwing hints that she and Drake are re-kindling their relationship. Get it Rih Rih !
The turnt up R&B princess had no remorse for the 2013 BET Award stage last night as she tore the the dance floor up with her super crunked and sexy dance moves.
The singer started off the first half of her performance with her new super turnt up song I’m Out. Nicki Minaj held her verse down before Ciara popped up from under the ground and start ripping the stage in her TopShop all over money print two piece. Ciara slowed it down for the second half of her performance, where she displayed major sex tease while singing the lyrics to her hit single Body Party. Watch her kill it below.
Per the usual, Ciara brught her boyfriend Future to the BET Awards as her date. Too cute!
Ciara was dressed in a black YSL two-piece skirt set and Lorraine-Schwartz gold heels.
Cassie Ventura was working her yellow skirt as she was exiting the NYC nightclub Greenhouse. The singer wore a colorful bustier, yellow pencil skirt and white pumps. Cassie appeared to be having a good time as she partied with, 106&Park host, Bow Wow.
You may or may not have noticed that the sides of Cassie’s hair are a bit longer than usual. That is because she is letting the sides of her hair grow back. You are probably gasping for air, I’m sure, but in a recent interview the singer just did she says its time for a new look. We are looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us next.
Last night the Good Good singer arrived at the Lincoln Center in NYC for Time Warner Cable’s “View From The Top” event. Her nicely toned legs complimented her nude louboutins well and her make up was on point. But are we feeling the dress ?
