Quotable quote of the day: Still Biebin'

Posted By on Tue, May 25, 2010 at 1:20 AM

Did you guys hear about Justin Bieber getting nominated for a BET Award? Well, he did. For "Best New Artist." But some people are mad about it, 'cause, y'know, the Biebs is white, not to mention a weird biological anomaly.

Media mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, however, thinks that Bieber's BET nod is no bigs at all. In fact, he's totally down with J-Bieb:

"The awards are important to hip-hop and to show [hip-hop artists] in the right light. But the beauty of BET is, if Justin Bieber's hot, then he deserves to be on that stage. 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."

Bieber himself took to Twitter to praise BET for being "color blind," replete with lots of 'u's and '2's and such. You hear that, America? Racism is dead!
