    Prince will be bestowed with a lifetime achievement award at this month's BET Awards, reports The Associated Press. Prince, 51, joins James Brown, Diana Ross, Al Green and Whitney Houston, all of whom are previous recipients of the award. The ceremony will be hosted by Queen Latifah and is scheduled for June 27 in Los Angeles and is celebrating its tenth anniversary.

    Stephen G. Hill, president of programming, music and specials for the network, said BET will celebrate the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's "unique style. Prince is dynamic. Prince is genius. Prince is music," Hill said of the quiet, purple cloaked enigma wrapped in a mystery, who has 10 platinum albums and 30 Top 40 singles to his name.

    What is your favorite Prince song? He is one of my favorites of all time so I can't even begin to pick which is my fave. It's too hard.
