According to Rolling StoneA brawl broke out Saturday night at the taping of the BET Hip-Hop awards in Atlanta, the Associated Press reports.

The fight soon spilled out into the parking lot, and police were called to break it up at around 7:30 p.m.  Rumors of a wild escalation quickly spread; Hot 97 DJ Funkmaster Flex tweeted from the show, "Shots fired in parking lot!!!

The scuffle broke out while a tribute to hip-hop manager Chris Lighty, who committed suicide in August, was taking place onstage. According the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, most of the fans inside the Civic Center were unaware of the events taking place outside, though the building was temporarily locked down during the fight.

One-on-One with Super Diva Triple Threat Jenifer Lewis

Okay, so why I am so hyped about this interview?  How did we vibe? What did she say?  What did I say?  This is not anything I can write about.  This is something you have to see for yourself.  She is real.  She is deep.  She is funny. She is sad.  She is happy.  When you see, what was supposed to be a interview unfold into a full blown documentary that I lovingly call 'Jenifer Lewis: In Her Own Words,' you will know what I mean when I say it's something you have to see for yourself.  She wasn't in 60 films and 259 TV appearance for nothing.  This Studio Q interview with Jenifer Lewis reminds you just why we all love her so much. Check out my interview with Jenifer below:
Special Thank You to Jenifer Lewis and her Manager, Julia, for agreeing to let Studio Q in her home to do this interview.  It was such an honor
