NEWS // Diddy Defends Justin Bieber's BET Nomination

The BET nominees were announced earlier this week leaving much to be desired. Most fans have been left perplexed as to how the nominees were selected. Would it be too imaginative to see them using the method of closing their eyes and dipping their hands in a bag full of names to select nominees?

There were a few people that were noticeably missing and some that had no actual business being on the list of contenders...then again it's BET and co-founder Sheila Johnson's disgust with her own creation pretty much speaks for itself.

Justin Bieber's nomination for Best New Artist has been called into question with many believing that he doesn't deserve it.

Diddy begs to differ.

The music mogul shared his thoughts on Justin's nod..

But the beauty of BET is, if Justin Bieber's hot, then he deserves to be on that stage," said Diddy. Sometimes, at other award shows, the color of your skin or the type of music you make takes away from getting the accolade you deserve. {Source}

I have a feeling that people's shock at Justin's nomination has little to do with his skin color, if at all. See past nominees for reference. Oh, and was Lady Gaga too busy for a nomination?
