    I’m not that keen on Nicki as a rule (Super Bass excepted) but that was a good performance, her rapping was excellent, singing and dancing not so great but give her time. That black outfit was also far more flattering than that awful Barbie stuff she wears most of the time ;o)

  24. Keepwinning July 2, 2012

    Two comments. First off, as far as her winning an award, Nicki won that by default. When you put her in a category with other female artists who haven’t had a hit since who knows when.. it’s obvious who’s the winner. It’s not that Nicki is that great, it’s just that her competition pales in comparison making her look the best. Sort of like the pretty girl with the ugly friends..

    Second, this chick switches up performances like her personalities. How fitting for her to put on her “black” face last night with Beez in da trap song, all the gangsta hand gestures and the stripper-like outfit. I think if it were the American Music Awards or MTV, it would have been valley-girl, Starships and a Cyndii Lauper outfit. Will the real Nicki please stand up?

    • Yeezy July 2, 2012

      @TL Thank you!!…. very few people (well most people over the age of 15) can see beyond this fraud.

      • SD July 2, 2012

        Both of y’all sound stupid.

      • nicki and bee # 1 fan July 2, 2012

        i know

    • pudding tang July 2, 2012

      everytime you see Nikki perform, that is the REAL NIKKI. She is of all makes and MODELS. Dont hate cause you dont have enuf intelligence to know the when a performer knows when to dress for the occation.

    • TK July 2, 2012

      You sound stupid. You’re saying she won by default which is true, but whose fault is that? It’s not Nicki’s fault that that half of the rap girls are too lazy to put music out & the other half that are putting music out, can seem to get a hit even when they team up.
      Secondly, Nicki is versatile, half her album is hip hop, half her album is pop. Why? partially because she likes both, and partially because half her fan base is hip hop & half is pop. The BET awards is more of a Hip Hop & R&B event & crowd, therefore she performed the fitting songs that she knew the audience wanted from her. At the MTV awards which is more of a pop audience, they wanna hear her “poppier” tracks & she performs those. She knows her audience & she gives them the songs they want, that’s not called being fake, that’s called being smart…But I understand why you wouldn’t understand that.

        I think they just dont want to understand it. They know BET is more urban music and MTV Awards is more pop. So therefore the artiste would have to switch their style up. As a fan I love both Hip Hop and Pop, so I like all of her songs on the album. Pound the Alarm is already slaying and so will Va Va Voom, Champion and HOV Lane. This album will be a huge success, especially in terms of singles. I have lots of songs from Nicki that are straight hip hop, so when the haters come in dissing Starships and PTA, all I can do is laugh because I love both sides of Nicki, whether it be pop or hip hop. But to the haters, keep hating because we can’t have everyone liking Nicki, we need u to hate so we can love her even harder, making her an even bigger success.

      • TL July 2, 2012

        Nicki is hip-hop and pop you say but, I bet you wouldn’t call her pop in her face. You might get cussed out or better yet, she might cancel the show and walk out.

        I don’t understand how a music artist who “wants” to step outside the box and do different music gets offended when people call her pop. All I’m saying is if you are going to be versatile take pride in all of your work …pop,hip-hop whatever. Especially when the “Pop” part is probably what is keeping her paid anyway.

        I cant support this fraud… I’ll leave that to the white folks, girly boys and the teeny-bopper fans, TK.

      • TK July 5, 2012

        @TL Would you call Kanye a pop artist? I wouldn’t call Nicki a pop artist, not because I’m afraid she’d be offended but simply because she’s not solely that. She has put out around 300+ songs and about 10 of them are pop which means the remaining 290+ are hip hop, therefore making her a Hip Hop artist who also dabbles in pop. To only acknowledge those 10 songs & solely call her pop is equivalent to only acknowledging “808’s & heartbreaks” by Kanye & dismissing all the rest of his music (which happens to be the majority). It’s insulting. Why is that just about every other artist can make a handful of songs outside of their original genre & can still be identified as what they actually are at their core, but not Nicki? She gets offended being called “pop” because most of the time it’s someone from the hip hop community calling her that and they’re using it in a negative & offensive way. The way they use it, pop = garbage, so yeah she’s gonna be offended cuz they’re basically calling her garbage. Was that particular interviewer using it negatively? no, but the fact is she has to sit & defend herself against simple minded idiots all day, she was probably already in defensive mode which is understandable. Summer Jam is perfect example of ppl using the pop term negatively. Rosenberg got up there and disrespected her based on ONE song that wasn’t even intended for the hip hop audience. She didn’t cancel the show because he referred to her as pop, she cancelled the show because he & his radio station were unprofessional idiots. You don’t ask someone to HEADLINE YOUR SHOW, then get up on stage before they perform & disrespect their music & fans. If he didn’t like that ONE song fine, but he should have been professional enough to STFU, that was not the time or place. She had every right to be offended by that.

        You’re saying you want her to take pride in all of her work but she already does. She loves her hip hop AND pop tracks, but people are so simple about it acting as if she has to choose one or the other, just acknowledge & respect her as an artist who loves & does BOTH, that’s all she wants. The simple, closed minded people can’t understand that though, TL.

    I’m not a big fan of her’s. I like her tho. I will say this was her best live performance to date!

    • Trini_Minaj July 2, 2012

      I loved the performance with for Check It Out. That performance by Nicki was slamming. I also loved her Grammy performance.

  28. Trini_Minaj July 2, 2012

    To Team Minaj….don’t hate the haters. They are there for a reason, they are simply doing their job! We actually NEED them, their hate makes us love and ride for Nicki even harder! Nicki does both hip hop and pop music and we love it, some love only her hip hop side and some love only her pop. Most of her fanbase loves ALL of her music, like me. Cause let’s face it, a lot of hip hop lovers like pop music as well. To top off her performance I had the pleasure of seeing KING Bey rap along to Beez in da Trap. That made my night! No one slays like King Bey and Queen Nicki. I will forever ride for the King and Queen!
