23-year-old, internet sensation, Pittsburgh rapper, Wiz Khalifa won Best New Artist Sunday night at the 2011 BET Awards. Wiz Khalifa said, “I didn’t expect to win, so I didn’t come with a speech or anything.” He went on to thank his management, his label and “all the young people who promote positivity.” He has 9 million+ fans on his Facebook page and 2 million followers on Twitter.
Khalifa battled and won against other great new faces like J. Cole, Bruno Mars, Miguel and youngster Willow Smith for the trophy, which he told the audience he wasn’t expecting to win at all.
Wiz Khalifa kissed his gal, Model Amber Rose, when he walked to the stage to accept the Best New Artist award during the show. There have been plenty of breakup and cheating rumors about these two over the last few months, but it appears that they’re very much together!
