I love what Smokey Robinson had to say in his long acceptance speech after receiving the Lifetime Achievement Honor at The BET Awards. He basically put other celebrities in check with their ego’s. Much of his speech was about being thankful and to realize that there is a tremendous amount of people in line wanting to have what most of the celebrity’s in the venue have. While watching, it looked to me like Rihanna was about to cry while hearing Smokey’s sermon.
USA Today reports about Smokey’s thankful acceptance, “I am so blessed to live my life, earning my living, doing what I absolutely love. For somebody to still be caring about what I’m doing, this is my proudest moment.” See his BET acceptance speech here.
