It was a big night last night at the 2015 BET Honors at Washington D.C.'s Warner Theater.  Kanye West received the Visionary Award...and got a surprise introduction from former friend he's just reconnected with, Damon Dash. 


Pics inside of honorees Usher, Phylicia Rashad, Bobby Brown, K.Michelle and more....

Raheem Davuaghn was on daddy duty last  night.  He brought his adorable son with him on the carpet.  Yep, first time we're hearing he has a son as well.

Janelle Monae & Jamie Foxx Get Honored At The TRUMPET AWARDS + Naturi Naughton, Rocsi, Mystikal, Cynthia Bailey & More Hit The Carpet

 photo janellenaturi_zps46811b0e.jpg

The 23rd Annual Trumpet Awards went down last night in Atlanta at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.  And we've got pics of the fab folks who hit the red carpet and received honors inside...


 photo spl930634_022_zpscf0096ad.jpg

The gorgeousness that is Janelle Monae showed up in a serious Balmain cape to accept her award for her accomplishments in entertainment. 

 photo ScreenShot2015-01-25at123027PM_zps3592593b.png

She posted her own cute pic with her award and gave this uplifting message:

"It's not that I don't experience fear but I understand fearlessness is more important. It's not that I don't get tired but I realize standing up for those whose voices are often ignored has to come first. It's not that I don't get discouraged but I understand that working hard, being a champion for minorities & those marginalized across the world as well as Opening up more doors for girls has to come first."

The Cover Girl spokesmodel and singer definitely encompasses what the awards are about: To celebrate and honor African American achievers and those who support the African American experience.

The annual event salutes accomplishments in law, medicine, business, politics, the arts, civil rights, sports, entrepreneurship, entertainment and other careers.  So it's only right Jamie Foxx was another nominee:

The actor, singer and comedian had his two favorite girls as his dates.

His mom Louise Annette Talley Dixon and his youngest daughter Annalise.  He also posed it up with "Power" star Naturi Naughton inside.

And Ms. Naturi looked snatched and amazing in her golden gown.

Omari Hardwick's on-screen wife posed it up with Rocsi Diaz, who just joined the crew over at HLN as a correspondent.

Rocsi looked red hot in her Cabernet colored lace detailed dress.  And she posed it up with her fellow New Orleans native Mystikal.  The man right chea!

 photo ScreenShot2015-01-25at123142PM_zps3528f7c6.png

Speaking of red hot, "Atlanta Exes" star Monyetta Shaw also rocked the bold color in a sexy Nicole Bakti curve hugging dress and Sergio Rossi shoes.  She blended in with the carpet, but the look totally worked for her.

And it appears red was the color of the night:

 photo ScreenShot2015-01-25at122740PM_zps218f13f2.png  photo spl930634_016_zpsaa962d6d.jpg

Well look at Shay "Buckeey" Johnson.  She's been hitting the gym and dieting like crazy, according to her Instagram posts, and it shows.  Scrappy's sometimes girlfriend on "LAHH ATL" (and reality star in her own right) hit the carpet in a chic lace embellished pantsuit by R Mills.  And we're not sure what's going on with her and Mystikal, but they definitely hit the carpet together....

 photo spl930634_033_zps841ede18.jpg

"RHOA" star Cynthia Bailey looked gorgeous in a blue S Boutique New York dress as she walked up to the carpet.  She revealed she did her own hair and makeup for the night.  Those model skills still come in handy.


 photo spl930634_020_zpsa24ace07.jpg

"R&B Divas LA" star Chanté Moore lit up the carpet in gold.

 photo spl930634_011_zps1fd98db3.jpg

And singer Deborah Cox, the woman behind that powerful voice in the Whitney biopic, also hit the carpet. 

The awards ceremony will be televised on Feb. 21 on TV One

 photo drayabrandy_zpse2c67e47.jpg

Those LA celebs love to party.  Check out how Draya Michele spent her 30th birthday weekend (in addition to filming a new season of "Basketball Wives: LA"), plus Brandy and others joined the "Empire" cast for a night out...and it looks like Denzel Washington is getting recruited for the show! 


Pics inside...

Brandy showed off her look before heading out for the night yesterday.

Oh to be a fly on the wall at this mini party:

 photo ScreenShot2015-01-25at11838PM_zps6ed126ba.png

Director Lee Daniels rounded up folks from a few of his movies and his new hit show "Empire" and partied it up at Giorgio's at the Standard in Hollywood last night.  "The Game" star Brandy rolled with the crew, as did rapper Common who is gearing up for a huge next few weeks of Awards season.

"Empire" stars Jussie Smollett and Tasha Smith were there, and The Butler and Precious star Lenny Kravitz brought his rock and roll sexiness as well.

As for what Denzel Washington was doing there--and waiting on his car at the valet like everyone else--it seems that Lee is trying to recruit the Academy Award winner to join "Empire"!

 photo ScreenShot2015-01-25at15920PM_zpsfcf26968.png


He posted the above pic from the previous night asking his followers if they think Denzel would join the cast.  That would be interesting....

Back to the party scene:

Even George Clinton was on hand with the fellas.

Lenny's Precious co-star Xosha Roquemore was there too getting kisses from Jussie:

Elsewhere in L.A. this weekend:

 photo ScreenShot2015-01-25at11920PM_zps9e9b9fb3.png  

Draya Michele took a break from filming the new season of "Basketball Wives: LA" to celebrate her 30th birthday weekend.  She partied it up last night in a velvet Gemeli Power Signature Label dress that offered up major side boo we're sure her NFL baller boyfriend Orlando Scandrick loved.

 photo ScreenShot2015-01-25at12111PM_zps2f9e6073.png  photo ScreenShot2015-01-25at13429PM_zpsf0a53ace.png

And she posed it up with her 'Fine Ass Girls' company models and friends.

But before she turned into a vixen for her party, she kept it classy (as classy as she could) at her cute tea party with Lyfe Tea:

Quite cute.  Happy birthday Draya.
