After the winners of last night’s BET Awards had been selected, there were still choices to be made–as in, which after party to attend. The Highlands hosted the House of Courvoisier post-awards bash. Interscope Geffen A&M Records presented the “Creme of the Crop” post BET Awards dinner celebration at Mr. Chow. Rihanna showed up, once again rocking what seems to be her signature look of the moment–a short haircut while showing off her gams. Call me crazy, but I think she manages to pull it off. Jermaine Dupri and Janet Jackson also showed up, looking very much the in-love couple. He’s completely won me over by this point. I spotted Solange in the pix looking very cute and I guess she’s a walking advertisement for how quickly a body can recover from pregnancy when you’re a baby having babies. Also, Nelly and Ashanti had a quick laugh on the red-carpet. Perhaps they’re cracking up over the fact that only moments before the flashbulbs went off, Nelly JUST remembered to put on his pants. As of yet, he hadn’t had a chance to cinch up his belt.
And no, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. That is Larry Birkhead.
