New York, NY. June 26, 2023. The stars aligned this weekend as the biggest names in culture gathered for the annual BET Awards. GRAMMY Award-winning singer Muni Long, showed up and showed out, shutting down the red carpet with her curly locks and taut abs.
The sultry songstress who recently released the highly anticipated remix of her hit song “Hrs & Hrs” featuring Usher shimmered in a Elisabetta Franchi sequin crop top with a matching skirt. She completed the look with voluminous summer curls. But it wasn’t all fashion and celebration for Long, who took the BET Awards stage and delivered a powerful statement of solidarity for the WGA writer’s strike before presenting Kalii’s performance. “Writers are, in many instances, the glue to the execution of artistry and storytelling. Our ability to extract emotion from performers, helping them to articulate their voices and vision to the world, is irreplaceable. The protection of the writer is crucial. We simply must protect our intellectual property,” said Long. Her words echoed deeply in the Microsoft Theater, where the Award show with no host was held.
The Grammy-award-winning singer was also on hand in a sexy red leather Cavanagh Baker number to help celebrate Busta Rhymes, Chloe and Halle Bailey, MC Lyte, and more at the 7th annual Culture Creator Awards, where she presented Flau’Jae Johnsonwith the Culture Creators Award in Sports.
