Nelly And Missy Elliot Top Bet Awards

Hip-hop stars MISSY ELLIOTT, ERYKAH BADU and NELLY have each received three nominations for the third annual BLACK ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK (BET) AWARDS.

Comedian MO'NIQUE will host next month's (JUN03) event, which will feature performances by JAMES BROWN, DONNIE McCLURKIN, YOLANDA ADAMS, INDIA.ARIE, 50 CENT and SNOOP DOGG.

LIL' KIM, who has been nominated for best female hip-hop artist, believes the awards also highlight the importance of women in music.

She says, "When you're a female you do have to prove yourself, unfortunately. I feel like women are coming up and I thank God that we're able to be recognised for our talent in this game and not just for our bodies."

The ceremony will take place on 24 June (03) at the KODAK THEATER in Hollywood, California.
