Terrence Howard Crashes Anthony Anderson-Tracee Ellis Ross ‘Empire’ Parody During BET Awards (Video)

Actor who plays Lucious Lyon explains why he gave up his perm: “Started getting a bald spot”

Empire BET Awards

BET Awards hosts Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson performed an ode to their Fox hit “Empire” during a Sunday skit, which was crashed by the real Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) himself.

“You touched my relaxer,” Ross, in character as Taraji P. Henson‘s Cookie, yelled at Anderson, playing Lucious. “And I know you touched it, because you had straight hair at the beginning of the ‘Empire’ episode, and then in the middle you didn’t have straight hair, and then you had straight hair again at the end of the episode.”

Shoes were then threatened to be thrown over the product theft.

For his part, Anderson swore that his straight hair is natural, thanks to his German mother. That’s when the real Lucious Lyon appeared, challenging the whole conceit and exciting the Los Angeles audience.

When the “Black-ish” male lead called out Howard for his ever-changing hairstyle, the actual “Empire” star scored the biggest laughs of the performance.

“I don’t go no perm no more,” Howard explained. “Started getting a bald spot.”
