This is how I felt about #Madonna Prince Tribute https://t.co/lq3Q8NG77C
Wonder what @Prince thought about @Madonna tribute at the #BBMAs ? https://t.co/EtRc4MLT86
Horrible tribute to Prince on #BBMAs - where was Prince family. Prince an ICONIC figure deserved better. Damn shame!
The #BBMAs Prince tribute is a joke. You don't have Sheila E or the surviving members of The Revolution on there? Child, boo!
@Madonna singing "Nothing Compares 2 U" was a SLAP IN THE FACE to @prince NOT a tribute #BillboardMusicAwards #BBMAs https://t.co/tiO9F7tdQ0
The internet has spoken.
I'm here for the memes. Yes we all know why Doves Cry. #Prince #Madonna #PrinceTribute #BBMAs
