This month's BET Awards will be a royal affair: Prince is getting a lifetime achievement honor.

The 51-year-old joins the likes of James Brown, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross and Al Green in being honored by the BET Awards, which will celebrate its 10th year in Los Angeles on June 27.

BET says the Prince tribute will stand out. 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 performer, who has 10 platinum albums and 30 Top 40 singles to his name.

The BET show will be hosted by Queen Latifah and include performances by Kanye West.

Dear BET,

PLEASE let this be significantly less of a hot ass mess than the Michael Jackson tribute. Pretty please with red velvet cake on top? Because otherwise you will get a long deserved ass whipping that will include nickels in a sock.

No love,

and Prince is gonna do one of these
