There will probably be more fabulous gowns at the June 26 Black Entertainment Awards than at the last Oscars. And it's all Diana Ross's fault.

Monique_alber_4953728_600The legendary singer/fashion icon will recieve the Lifetime Achievement Award during the BET Awards televised at 8 p.m. (ET) on June 26.

In honor of "The Boss," host/comedienne Mo'Nique - author of "Skinny Women are Evil," plans to change clothes for each category during the show. And there are 15 categories so that's a lot of frocks. Frankly, given Mo' Nique's super-size, this stunt may cause a chiffon shortage that could impact the next Oscars.

Nominees for the BET Awards include Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend, Gnarls Barkley, Diddy, Jay-Z, Ludacris, Angela Bassett, Jamie Foxx, Will Smith, Forest Whitaker, Eddie Murphy, Kerry Washington, Tiger Woods, Serena Williams, Chandra Williams, and more.

Also, 50 Cent's new album "Curtis" will be released the day of the awards and fans will be able to vote online at bet.com to decide which song he sings on the show. Right now, you can also vote for the Viewers Choice Award on the site.
