  15. Ghetto Fab May 17, 2010

    Yall Fist Brown stans can talk all the s*** yall want to but Jason Derulo is going to take over by the time his next album drops lol.

    He is the first male artist to have his first two singles go NUMBER ONE on the pop charts. His first single sold 5 million copies. Don’t hate people CONGRATULATE!!!!!

  16. KELLY May 17, 2010

    What the hell was that about? Was he supposed to be singing or talking. Well I’ll say this he’s not going nowhere. They will lose money for sure with this garbage

  17. glenn May 17, 2010

    I don’t care about his first single and his 5 million. We are talking about this one. (Horrible)

  18. GLENN May 17, 2010

    This is our opinion. It’s not about who is a Chris Brown fan idiot!!!!!!

  19. Fred May 17, 2010

    That was really bad no shade. His first album has it even sold 100000 worldwide yet? I cringe at this guys dancing and singing whenever I see him I thought I would check this out and see if its gotten any better apparently not. I cant tell which he is trying to be MJ or Chris Brown but he is trying to be one or both, he fails at both he needs to find his own identity and take vocal lessons and dance lessons also if he is going to pursue that.

  20. ella May 17, 2010


    Jason DerulA said hER ultimate influence is MJ so that’s what SHe’s trying to be.
    How anyone not see what a queen DerulA is? SHe plucks heR eyebrows and turns away from video girls like SHe smells something nasty *sips tea*

  21. PTRC May 17, 2010

    Being a big QUEEN has nothing to do with that voice. He was horriable to listen to.

  22. PTRC May 17, 2010

    @Ella lol

  23. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut May 17, 2010

    Ewww…his vocals and vibrato are just all over the place. I get dizzy listening to this n**** sing sometimes (really), lol.

  24. edna May 17, 2010

    he really need a voice machine or something that they use. PURE D GARBAGE

  25. malyeh May 17, 2010

    Chris Brown is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than Jason.

    Just watch his live performances, listen to his albums/mixtapes.
    But you probably didn’t listen to it yet…

    + Chris knows how to dance, Jason is copying MJ – ALL THE TIME ! STOP PLEASE !

    And Jason’s fashion style… I mean… NO.

    And it’s not because your first on the charts that you’re doing great music (e.g. Kesha) It’s COMMERCIAL.

  26. we May 17, 2010

    There was someone on the other blog saying that this dude and Justin Beaver took over Chris Brown place. Either my ears are clog and my eyes wire shut. This dude has no talent. So what he made 5 million on his last cd and will probably be his last. HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. tracy May 17, 2010

    This fool can’t sing or dance. He’s a JOKE!! His performance on George Lopez Tonight was EMBARRASSING. If you all think this is bad, listen to his rendition of “Billie Jean” #myearsarestillbleeeding

  28. don May 17, 2010

    crapped!!!! 🙁


    This talentless hack’s inspiration is Michael? What Michael? Michael Sterling? It damn sure AINT no Michael Jackson SMGDH

  30. WHAT EVA May 17, 2010

    NOT BAD Jason is making a positive name for himself in the business. Good for him
    Fist Clown is outta there
    You can say Jason is coping MF. Sh*t so did Fist Clown an thousandsof impersonators in Vegas and in This Is It. So what? MJ was the greatess.

    Fist Clown cant out sing Jason. please. their neck in neck the BIG difference is Jason is not a CONVICTED FELON Thank You hate on that.
    Go Jason Go Jason Go Jason Gooooooooooo

  31. Never Say Goodbye May 17, 2010

    LMAO! I thought Chris had competition, but he can take as much time as he wants because he has nothing to worry about….This s*** right here…smh..I just can’t…


    I want him & Trey Songz to come out the glass closet. They’re both overrated frauds.

  33. ceecee May 17, 2010

    @Jason Dedraculo co-sign two queens

  34. Teflon Boy May 17, 2010

    His sexuality is neither here nor there but as far as his talent is concerned Jason Derulo epitomises the current trend in the industry plaguing the bulk of today’s new signees…, basically he’s a talented songwriter and/or dancer but he’s not a talented artist in his own right. I understand labels wanting to keep all the talent in-house with their act not having to rely on outside writers to keep the machine rolling and also writing allows for the acts to make some money along the way too but the point is these acts are unfinished and unpolished and lack the required magic needed to deliver as front men. Some of the strongest and most relevant pre-noughties performers didn’t write their own material but they didn’t need to because teams of writer’s were handling that end and the artist’s job was to look good, sing well and perform which the bulk did. Derulo in this day and age doesn’t need to be better than he is because this generation is starved for decent performers outside of Lady Gaga and Chris Brown (I don’t inc. Beyonce, Usher or JT in this as they honed their skills with all the other 90’s acts) so there’s a market for him as he is. But IMO he would have been cooler with a couple years artist development and vocal training under his belt because he’s not without talent, it’s just that his style is sufocated beneath all that unnecessary riffing and embellishment and his dancing is so hyperactive and chaotically beggin that you can’t enjoy it. In a word, he’s not ready and shouldn’t be out yet.

  35. Me Damnit!! May 17, 2010

    @Ghetto Fab (how do you expect anyone to take you seriously with that name) you are seriously one sick sad, miserable individual! You hate CB so much that you would sit their and actually act as if this performance was anywhere near decent? You know it kills me how people are so hell bent on insisting that Jason ‘fruity looking’ Derulo has taken Chris Brown spot! Are ya’ll really that delusiuonal??

    These are the reasons why ya’ll are delusional and hypocritical:

    You try to critisize CB uses autotune all the time (when he doesn’t) when EVERY song that Jason has released he has used autotune.

    You try to say that CB can’t sing when you know damn well he sounds 1000x’s better than JD!

    You try to claim CB is trying copy MJ, when the only time he does MJ is when he is paying tribute. (even though MJ himslef said that he was a CB fan) Jason Derulo always looks like he is doing recycled impressions (bad ones) of MJ impressions!

    Then ya’ll wanna say that CB’s album flopped when Jason had a No. 1 song, 2 top ten’s, image hasn’t been tarnished and he was touring with Lady ‘gimmick’ Gaga and still only sold 60k first week!! Has he even sold 200k yet??

    Who cares if he has first single sold 5 million copies, that ain’t albums!! Ya’ll are a serious trip!

    CB already has 2 multiplatinum albums under his belt! CB already has won over 40 awards including international awards! CB has already been nominated for Grammy’s! CB has already performed at the Grammy’s, MTV awards, AMA’s, WMA (infront of his Idol MJ) BET awards. CB has already done The Today Show, GMA, Tyra, Ellen.

    CB has already proved himself as an artist! JD is the one that needs to get his creds up! Ya’ll keep talking about ‘Well on his next album….’ blah, blah, blah! If he was as great as ya’ll say, wouldn’t he be getting all the accolades from his first album? You know

    Fact: Jason Derulo sucks ass! He wil NEVER and I mean NEVER take or even reach CB’s level! It just will not happen! Cut the BS and get over it!

    Reason why JD can NEVER take CB’s spot:
    He cannot sing! Proof:

    He cant dance. Proof:

    He is not attractive in the least bit! Proof:

    All of the things necessary to succeed he lacks!

    Chris Brown can sing:

    Chris Brown can dance:

    Chris Brown can move a crowd:

    Chris Brown has the looks:

    Please stop with the BS! Jason ‘super fruity’ Derulo can ‘t touch CB! He hasn’t come close yet and most definitely won’t ever! You can hate on CB all you want, but you know you are lying your ass off if you think that he is anywhere near CB and you know it!

  36. noah May 17, 2010

    he looks like a m***** or an a**!

  37. Gucci May 18, 2010

    Jason Derulo has completely replaced Chris Brown. At least this performance was better than that horrendous national anthem Chris was trying to sing at a boxing match mind you. No amount of autotune could have made that bearable.

    @Rihannastan lmao girl yesssssss

    @Ghetto Fab

    Let them know! Chris Brown’s time is all the way turnt off.

  38. Gucci May 18, 2010

    LMAO and the Chris Brown stans have the nerve to say Jason is gay? LMAO Chris is the one wearing LEGGINGS on his album cover sweetie. He’s the brightest skittle in the bag, right next to Sam and Trent.

  39. Gucci May 18, 2010

    That boy sounds like a male Mariah Carey compared to Chris Brown’s underage female voice.

  40. Keesha May 18, 2010

    I am now convinced that Gucci is delusional! Completely delusional! That is all!

  41. bluekid May 18, 2010

    Gucci just wants Chris Brown to fail and go away, the same thing I wish for Rihanna.

    The problem is Chris Brown is not going away and because of Rihanna now fame, she can live off that for years to come.

    Meaning Rihanna will still be Rihanna, she will always be famous.
    Chris Brown will still have his career, because there are people still want to listen to him.

    Jason Derulo was suppose to be the Chris Brown replacement, the media and the music industry want Chris Brown to shut up so they could replace him with Jason “Fruity Pebbles” Derulo.
    The problem is Chris Brown want shut up, he still talking and making him self relevant good or bad in the public’s eyes. They want Chris Brown to go away, but he want. LOL
    So far all you Rihanna fans and Chris Brown haters, Chris Brown has made up his mind that he is going to be relevant rather you want him to be are not.

    It matters not if Jason “Fruity Pebbles” Derulo is packing fudge, he diffidently need a style of his own musically and the whole nine yards.
    The music industry is realizing Chris Brown cannot be replaced and it will be a money lost to have two artist out with the same sounds. This is why the industry is black balling Chris Brown the same way they did Cindy Lopper her and Madonna came out at the same time and the music industry chose Madonna and caned Cindy.

    Chris Brown is not going to stop touring and Jason “Fruity Pebbles” Derulo is always going to be competing with Chris Brown until Jason “Fruity Pebbles” Derulo last loosing breath.
    People are going to pull and love Chris Brown even more so because nobody likes the bad guys{ the music industry} black balling ( Chris Brown) at the end of the day and Jason “Fruity Pebbles” Derulo, Chris Brown will be the winner.

    Jason “Fruity Pebbles” Derulo do you and stop doing Chris Brown are you will find your self more hated than Rihanna.

  42. Gucci May 18, 2010


    Spell check honey. I have no idea what you are talking about. Chris Brown is over. Jason isn’t gay honey. He’s not the one wearing leggings/stockings on his album cover with high heeled boots. Chris is as sweet as they come girl. Stop living in denial.


    I’M the delusional one? AHAHAA the biggest Chris Brown stan of all time has the NERVE to say I’M delusional? Honey take a seat in the same trash can Chris’ career is in. And while you’re at it get him a vocal coach.

  43. bluekid May 18, 2010

    This site talks about Madonna, Beyonce, Lady GaGa, Jay Z all the devil worshipers and the artist that sold their souls to the Devil.

  44. Gucci May 18, 2010

    Oh bluekid you’re so desperate, Chris was in a relationship with a “devil worshiper” for 2 years. He even wrote the songs that you are now mindlessly claiming represent the devil. You and so many others have fallen victim to your own ignorance. The real “devil worshipers” are clearly distracting the mindless c**** all the while standing right under your nose. You fools are totally missing the mark by blaming the celebrities. But then again, that’s what they wanted. DUMBASS.

    Heres what I’m watching.

  45. remmy May 18, 2010

    Wow that was bad but not as bad as what. Video links “Me Damit” just posted of jason singing live…I can’t even laugh at that…that was sad, I really feel bad for him…singers spend their whole life trying to make it and now that he has he has NO skills to back it up…(I’m serious I really feel bad for him…scroll up and find “Me Damit” comments and links and you’ll see what I’m taliking ’bout)

  46. X,Y,”and Z” May 18, 2010

    ….Now I’m one who abhors, and-finds-it, at the very least, disingenuous to “call-anyone-out, of their names” …but what I just saw, has-GOT-to-be: THE GAYEST S*** I’VE EVER SEEN..!!!!
    This dude is trying soooo hard to-be-liked; it’s like he’s trying to be the “anti-CB” …for real!

    …This “sensitive s***” is just that: S***…!!! I’d rather someone with “dirt-up-under THEIR nails” than this over-the-top/hyper-sensitive/got-no-scrotum/sit-down-when-you-pee B*******!

    …Smack-a-b****; kick-a-b****-in-the-a**; put-a-b****-on-the-track (behind in my rent) ….but NOT-this BULL S***! …He’s an embarrassment to all black men ….!!

    X,Y,”and Z” – OUT!!

    (Cue the X,Y,”and Z” exit-theme music)

    …She wanna hold-my-hand; wanna hold-MY-dough; got love-for-sale ….
    …I don’t need it – B****-Ah-Ah
    …I don’t need it – B****-Ah-Ah
    … B****-Ah-Ah
    … B****-Ah-ah

  47. Keesha May 18, 2010

    @Gucci, When did I ever say that I was the biggest fan of Chris Brown’s of all time? And whiile your thinking about that question that I just asked you, find vocal lessons for Rihanna, the person who really needs vocal lessons, I mean since she is the queen and all. Isn’t she supposed to have the vocals of a “Queen?” Like Mariah Carey, or Whitney Houston, who were TRUE queen in their own right.

  48. Keesha May 18, 2010

    I meant *queens*

  49. R U KINDING ME?? May 31, 2010

    This gay ass piece of s*** made me appreciate the original
