Usher discovered Justin Bieber and now he’s going to spend the rest of his life apologizing for it
Chris Rock hosted the 2014 BET Awards in Los Angeles on June 29. The comedian made fun of a few people and mocked a few recent infamous events.
Here are his best jokes during the evening festivities:
1. As he welcomed Usher to the stage, Rock joked that the artist had “discovered Justin Bieber and now he’s going to spend the rest of his life apologizing for it”.
2. Rock attributed the success of the hit ABC show’s Scandal to the fact that the program has cast a white president. “White people get to tune in and feel good. For one hour, it’s just back to normal”, he said.
3.”An 83-year-old white man doesn’t like black people? Is that news? A black man couldn’t look him in the eye until he was 45. The first black man he ever met, he got for Christmas”, he said of Donald Sterling.
4. The actor couldn’t help but bring up the Solange and Jay Z elevator debacle. “Solange hit the right rapper—Jay’s a businessman now, he can’t just go punching girls in the face—he’s got a meeting with Nabisco in the morning”, he joked.
5. “That acting job was amazing because she had to imagine she was poor!” he said of Oprah Winfrey not winning an Oscar for ‘The Butler’.
