  • Apparently boy band Mindless Behavior lived up to their name Sunday night at the BET Awards as far as Beyonce was concerned.

    Beyonce was so upset at what they said about Lauryn Hill, that she changed her acceptance speech (on the fly) to honor the former Fugee.

    Comedian Mike Epps and the group Mindless Behavior were co-presenting the award for "Best R&B Artist" when Mike jokingly tried to sing.

    One of the members of the group quipped, “You sing bad, like Lauryn Hill’s tax accountant bad.”

    Watch video below.

    The comment drew gasps from the crowd and upset Beyonce, who ultimately won the award that was being presented.

    But TMZ has learned that the singer scrapped the speech she had prepared and defended Lauryn’s honor instead,saying, “I want to thank all the talented R&B women that came before me like Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige.”

    Sources say the singer vented backstage about the insult, saying the Lauryn Hill diss was “disrespectful” and “not cool.”

    Calls to Beyonce’s representative have gone unanswered.
