    ….aaaand Bey made history! most grammy noms for a female EVER!! she officially slays all ur faves 🙂 hahaha.

  8. Socivol December 2, 2010

    Clearly the Grammys are a joke. They have been for a while but this just solidifies it. Katy Perry got nominated for album of the year yet one of the most CRITICALLY acclaimed albums (The ArchAndroid) does not? It’s pathetic and disgusting! The Grammys are a damn mess.

  9. snatched! December 2, 2010

    I predict

    -Janelle will win for her categories
    -Rihanna will win for Only Girl
    -Eminem will win album of the year

  10. cutiepie December 2, 2010

    Way to go Monica

  11. jewelz December 2, 2010

    not fans of either, but lady gaga and jay z got snubbed!

    oh yea #ritardnavy, just b/c eminem got nominated. if he wins, rihanna don’t get s*** because she don’t have the writing credits!

  12. zania December 2, 2010

    I AM CRYING. I AM SO HAPPY FOR CHRIS BROWN, EVEN IF HE DON’T WHEN.At LEAST HE WAS ACKNOWLEDGE AND HE HAS HIS FOOT BACK IN THE DOOR. CONGRATS CHRIS.

  13. THEMUSICPROFESSOR December 2, 2010

    DEADDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD… EL DEBARGE GOT MORE NOMINATIONS THAN A LOT OF NEW ARTISTS…. AND CONGRATS MONICA..FAITH EVANS..FANTASIA….CEE-LO GREEN..AND I THINK FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE WILL WIN

  14. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    I’m happy and disappointed all at once!!! First, YESSSSSSSSSS, to Gaga, The Black Keys, Muse, Beyoncé, Florence + The Machine, Eminem, Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, Janelle Monáe and Bruno Mars!!!

    However… WHAT THE F*** @ Justin Bieber getting all those nods?!?!?! And Katy Perry for “Record of The Year” and “Best Female Pop Vocal Performance”? I just can’t…

  15. zania December 2, 2010

    TYPOS= I MEANT EVEN IF HE DON’T WIN, HE HAS HIS FOOT IN THE DOOR. LOVE YOU CHRIS.

  16. fan December 2, 2010

    All I have to say is yes Fantasia you will be getting your grammy’s this year. I see at least 2 maybe 3.

  17. miro(; December 2, 2010

    hopw DRAKE wins with over and best new artist, GAGA AND BEY w/ telephone. EMINEM AND RIHANNA with love the way you lie. fantasia,LUDA AND NICKI MINAJ with ma chick bad(:

  18. Mari December 2, 2010

    Where the f*** is Train for “Hey Soul Sister” for record or song of the year? That song was so popular that even Chuck E. Cheese covered it!

  19. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare December 2, 2010

    @SOCIVOL- right!! I mean, Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” over the critically acclaimed masterpiece “The ArchAndroid.” This is hot, twice warmed up, damn mess!

  20. Nichole December 2, 2010

    F*ck the Grammys. They became a joke years ago.

    I can already predict the winners, without even having to tune into see if my predictions are correct because I already know they will be.

    People can’t take the Grammys seriously anymore.

  21. [email protected] Please December 2, 2010

    @Jewelz If that was the case she wouldn’t have won two last for Run this Town. The only one that goes exactly to the writers is song of the year.

  22. Thriller Killer December 2, 2010

    Rihanna has 4 Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. zania December 2, 2010

    I THOUGHT IT WOULD TAKE YEARS FOR THE MAINSTREAM AWARDS SHOWS LIKE GRAMMYS WOULD NOMINATE CHRIS. THIS IS THE BEST NEWS IN WHILE. I KNOW HE IS HAPPY.

  24. Gilberto December 2, 2010

    Rihanna’s fans have been saying that ‘Rated R’ is a critically acclaimed album. Where’s its nominations? No one gave a f*** about it. GRAMMY, VMA, EMA, BET, BRIT, MOBO, ANIMAL PLANET. NO ONE GIVE IT ANY AWARD. I thought she couldn’t flop harder, but now she took it to the next level. ‘Rated R’ was flop from sales and awards. LOL.

    Rihanna should thanks Eminem for her nominations (actually, they are his nominations. She’s barely a featured singer), ’cause she can’t take it by her own. She’ll always need somebody else more talented than her to shine. Can’t she go futher with her own talent?

  25. TC ;D December 2, 2010

    CHECK OUT BRANDY’S NEW SONG “YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL” ———————-> http://t.co/tW9fMgj <———————- & STAY TUNED 2NITE 2 SEE BRANDY ON THE JOY BEHAR SHOW & GEORGE LOPEZ SHOW

  26. Beth smith December 2, 2010

    Never posted here but I have to say I am happy for chris brown, I hope he wins.

  27. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    I’m happy that the Grammys nominated amazing talent this year. The only people I’m confused/disappointed about are Katy Perry and Rihanna. For Katy, I don’t feel that Teenage Dream deserved ANY awards. I’m kind of surprised that Rated R didn’t receive ANY nominations but “Only Girl” did…I called it 😐

    @Gilberto
    Incorrect. Period.

  28. THEREALNICKY December 2, 2010

    @ JEWELZ

    JUST LIKE HOW SHE TOOK HOME TROPHIES FOR “RUN THIS TOWN”?

    OH OK….

    RATED R WAS NOT NOMINATED AND TEENAGE DREAM AND GRAFITTI WERE? DEAD.

    ANYWAY, GLAD TO SEE LOUD GETTING NOMINATED ALREADY AFTER ONLY BEING OUT FOR 2 WEEKS!!!!!

  29. Beth smith December 2, 2010

    Please stop saying rhi has four nominations, she has 1.

  30. JAZ0195 December 2, 2010

    I’m so happy for chris! I hope he wins

  31. JAZ0195 December 2, 2010

    It proves that sells don’t matter Graffiti did terrible and still got a nomination. Who mad? Stay the f*** mad.

  32. noodles December 2, 2010

    I’m so happy for Chris! Omg 3 nominations. And thats pretty good because we know 2009-2010 wasn’t really too good for him. Even if he doesn’t win its just the fact his work was acknowledged again by the Grammys! I just can’t help but think about every single hater that said he would never even get this far again. HA! I’m really hoping he wins.

    Deuces has some competition though. I can’t believe Graffiti is nominated. But its material was good it was just slept on. I don’t care too much for the song Take My Time but can’t complain about a nomination. I’m hyped for Lady Gaga, Chris, Bruno. But if they win(espically Chris) I’ll cry.

    And really though Katy Perry for Album of The Year? I’m no fan of Rihanna but I would expect she would be nominated for that category before Katy would ever be. Smh. Oh well. All the people I wanted to get nominated are. #WhoMad?

  33. GangsterA December 2, 2010

    YAASSSS QUEEN KNOWLES MADE HISTORY I HOPE SHE WIN AGAIN AND WHERES TAYLOR ? AND RATED R ? AND RUDE BOY ? I HOPE EMINEM WIN ALBUM OF THE YEAR AND DRAKE WIN TOO AND LUDACRIS AND NICKI HAVE TO WIN BUT IF THAT UGLY KID WIN SOMETHING I AM GONNA DIE CONGRATS

  34. THEREALNICKY December 2, 2010

    @ BETH

    H** SIT DOWN LMFAO…..IF LTWYL WINS , SHE WILL BE TAKING HOME A TROPHIE.

    SORRY TO BE THE ONE TO BREAK THAT DOWN TO YOU.

  35. TC ;D December 2, 2010

    GLAD TO SEE “REAL R&B” IS NOMINATED THIS YEAR & NOT THAT B**** BEYONCE WITH HER GHOSTWRITTEN MUSIC

    16 GRAMMY’S F*** & B****** PLEASE THOSE GRAMMYS BELONG TO THE DREAM SEAN GARRETT NEYO & EVERY OTHER PERSON WHO WROTE OR DIRECTED HER LAME ASS MUSIC

    THAT B**** IS A PATHETIC FAD….

    HELL GIVE HER DAD MATTHEW A GRAMMY NOMINATION TOO! SINCE HEZ ON THE GRAMMY BOARD PROMOTING THAT B****** BASIC ASS MUSIC

  36. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @Gangstera
    Speak Now, Taylor’s latest album missed the cut-off date for this year’s Grammys. This years Grammys are for albums released from September 1, 2009 to September 30, 2010. Speak Now was released October 25, 2010.

    However, Speak Now will have some stiff competition in 2012 against albums from Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, and others.

  37. [email protected] Please December 2, 2010

    Take it as it is.Rihanna is NOM for then 1 award.The song says everywhere you read Eminem FT Rihanna.

  38. noodles December 2, 2010

    No one gave a f*** about it. GRAMMY, VMA, EMA, BET, BRIT, MOBO, ANIMAL PLANET
    ————————————————————-
    Lol. I’m sorry I’m not laughing at Rihanna but just the comment. Lol “Animal Planet” Ya’ll are a mess!

  39. HATIN IS FOR SUCKAS December 2, 2010

    Yay Chris got three nomination and to think people said he couldn’t get nominated outside of the EBT awards proves them wrong.

  40. Gilberto December 2, 2010

    GREAT WEEK FOR RIHANNA’S FANS.

    Loud is sinking faster than Titanic. Only Flop and What’s My Flop? is killing… the bottom of the charts. Grammy completly snubbed Rated Flop, a “critically acclaimed album” (to whom besides her delusional fans?). Eminem used Rihanna as his backing singer. LTWYL wasn’t nominated for any category of best vocal.

    Amazing week!

  41. Jade December 2, 2010

    Very surprised that Chris is nominated. Hopefully he can take one home. I would have thought Nicki, Drake and Justin would have gotten more noms but I hope Em gets album of the year.

  42. noodles December 2, 2010

    Remember about a year ago(lets be honest) when Graffiti was flopping and the haters laughed at Chris’s failures?

    But hey remember when The 53rd Grammy nominations came out and it got nominated? Not because of sales but off of material? Hey I do!

  43. annie! :] December 2, 2010

    @RihannaForever no she wouldn’t ’cause she doesn’t have any writing credits…

  44. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @Gilberto
    Loud is not flopping at all. As for “Only Girl” and “What’s My Name”, how is it that they’re flopping if they are both still in the top 5? They can’t really climb higher than they already have…and Rated R may have been snubbed but it was critically acclaimed – don’t deny that. As for LTWYL, she sang the chorus and she will receive a Grammy should it win. Also, Record of the Year is far more prestigious than Best Vocal Performance.

  45. Wire December 2, 2010

    Poor Fist Brown.

    Well at least that convicted felon can say he was nominated.

    He will never ever win one. Obviously he is a filler in the categories.

    Rihanna is about to add some more Grammys to her growing collection!

  46. TC ;D December 2, 2010

    GLAD TO SEE REAL MUSIC IS FINALLY COMING BACK … 😀 & CONGRATULATIONS NICKI (I KNOW DAT B**** LIL KIM MAD) & CONGRATS EL DEBARGE DRAKE! USHER & KELLY PRICE & FAITH EVANS! (THEY’LL SING THAT B**** BEYONCE UNDER A TABLE)

  47. Starr December 2, 2010

    Seriously.. all I have to say is Unthinkable was #1 on the R&B charts for 13 weeks (that’s 3 freakin months) and Alicia Keys had the best selling R&B album this year, and she’s not in any of the R&B categories? I call b*******.

    And that’s only one of many examples of why the Grammy’s are worth crap. Really now though, what credible music awards do we have left?

    Congrats to Janelle Monae on her noms, and she should have had more. Don’t even get me started with Katy Perry.

  48. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @Annie! :]
    She wouldn’t for a songwriter’s award like Song of the Year but she would for any non-songwriter’s award. Hence the Grammy she received for “Run This Town” last year…

  49. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @Starr
    I know. It’s unbelievable to me.

  50. CiaraFan December 2, 2010

    GRAMMY ARE BECOMING A JOKE!!!!

    JANELLE MONAE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN MORE NOMINATIONS AND BEEN IN BETTER CATEGORIES.

    AS WELL AS SADE!
    AND PARAMORE!

  51. heather December 2, 2010

    actually if LTWYL wins i think song of the year rih rih wont win because she is not listed as a songwriter. eminem on the other hand will because he and 2 other people wrote the song……not rihanna. Congrats to everyone nominated though! except katy perry! sorry but i aint feeling her at all.

  52. MuzikJunkie December 2, 2010

    I really hope Fantasia wins one! She’s been nominated sooo many times, hopefully she’ll finally win one. Congrats Tasia! And I hope Luda and Nicki win too!!

  53. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @Heather
    Again, if LTWYL wins for a SONGWRITER’S award, Rihanna won’t receive a Grammy. If LTWYL wins for a NON-SONGWRITER’S award (Record of the Year), she will receive a Grammy. Therefore, she could earn 3 Grammy’s in February.

  54. Beth smith December 2, 2010

    At the realnicky. I am not sure why the h** calling is necessary. Its the way the industry she’s rhi is featured on the songs, only singing the chorus, she doesnt even have writing credit, she might take a grammy but it aint a real grammy, hell Bey getting a nod with gaga, gives bey more credit, even bruno mars gets more credit on cee lo;s song that rhi on eminem, since he wrote it. Like Rhi but lets stick to the facts.

  55. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    To everyone complaining about Rihanna and Janelle not getting any nods…

    …THEIR ALBUMS DIDN’T SELL ALL THAT WELL. YOU KNOW AWARD SHOWS ARE POPULARITY CONTESTS. IF YOUR ALBUM FLOPPED, FORGET ABOUT IT.

    Only way you can have an album not do all that well commercially and still be nominated on account on critical acclaim is if you’re an indie rocker.

  56. DATBITCH December 2, 2010

    BEYONCE HOLDS THE MOST NOMINATIONS IN HISTORY BY ANY WOMAN! GO BEY!

  57. Gilberto December 2, 2010

    RihannaForever

    You have said Rated R was critically acclaimed. Okay. Just tell me one thing… by whom? All the biggest awards on this world didn’t give it anything.

  58. jewelz December 2, 2010

    will rihanna ever get her own solo grammy nomination?

  59. Beth smith December 2, 2010

    If Fantasia can get awards on her own, justin beiber, even Katy Perry, then the fact is Rhi should be able to win awards on her own, not only when she is featured. Bey can go home and say i got a s*** load of awards and guess what she was featured on that s***, its her award, same for gaga, even monica damn it. The point is awards have not given rhi the credit she needs to have by now after being in the game for so long, and its simply becos her craft is not worthy, its forgettable, hit or no hit, it doesnt show any growth.

  60. fan December 2, 2010

  61. zania December 2, 2010

    PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY GETTING MAD BECAUSE TREY SONGZ WASN’T NOMINATED FOR HIS LAST ALBUM AND CHRIS WAS. BUT WHAT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND THE GRAMMYS ARE NOT GOING TO AWARD YOU FOR A S** SONGS. THAT IS WHY CHRIS IS TRYING TO DO LOVE SONGS FOR FAME.

  62. THEREALNICKY December 2, 2010

    @ JEWELZ

    GGGB WAS NOMINATED 9X DUMBASS

    ONLY GIRL WAS NOMINATED

  64. HATIN IS FOR SUCKAS December 2, 2010

    The fist brown jokes are so funny now hahaha

    If Chris wins an award I don’t want see know backtracking and making up excuse for him winning.

    So poor that

  65. Aamiy December 2, 2010

    What happened to KELIS “FLESH TONE”…. i am a Rihanna fan but Kelis should have at least got a Nomination for any “DANCE” category…. SMH…. ONLY GIRL IN THE WORLD should not have been nominated….

    @ TRUE BLUE

    YOU’RE A BAFOON BECAUSE BRUNO MARS WAS NOMINATED 6X AND SOLD 150K

    H** SIT DOWN!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    DO YOU GUYS DO RESEARCH B4 YOU MAKE COMMENTS?

  67. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @Gilberto
    First off, is your Gravatar of Jessica from Sonyeo Sidae? Also, like @TrueBlue said, awards shows are popularity contests these days. I mean REVIEWS of the album were usually very positive, causing it to be criticially acclaimed in some forms.

    @TrueBlue
    That’s true. If only those two had been nominated. They would’ve 10-15 years ago…

  68. Seriously.. December 2, 2010

    I HONESTLY THINK USHER AND ALICIA KEYS GOT SNUBBED.

    USHER WILL HOWEVER WIN THE GRAMMYS FOR HIS CATEGORIES, I THINK WE CAN ALL AGREE ON THAT.

    NOT NOMINATING ALICIA KEYS FOR ANYTHING BESIDES HER COLLAB WITH JAY-Z FEELS KINDA OFF.

  69. THEREALNICKY December 2, 2010

    RIHANNA HAS 4 GRAMMY NOMINATIONS!!!

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHAHAAHHA

    FOR PERFORMANCE VOCALS AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHHAHA

    HATERS DO YOU LOVE IT??????

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

    THEIR ALBUMS DIDN’T SELL ALL THAT WELL. YOU KNOW AWARD SHOWS ARE POPULARITY CONTESTS. IF YOUR ALBUM FLOPPED, FORGET ABOUT IT.
    ————————————-
    Not true. Graffiti flopped. We all know the media really doesn’t like Chris. If his last album got a nomination there really is no excuse for anyone else. I mean anyone else could have had an album that did better than Graffiti and fit that spot.

  71. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @Fan and @Aamiy
    I agree.

    @TheRealNicky
    It would’ve likely been different if the Doo-Wops & Hooligans era was over and we could look back at it’s success that it is likely to achieve singles-wise. Also, most of the artists nominated in the mainstream categories were only ones that achieved much success with their albums.

    If you’re saying that, then why was Rihanna snubbed?

    @TrueBlue
    I wish Alicia Keys was nominated…

  72. THEREALNICKY December 2, 2010

    I KNOW THE BEY STANS BETTER NOT BE SAYING TELEPHONE IS HER NOM WHEN THEYRE SAYING LTWYL IS NOT RIH’S NOM

    AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Yes, she is. My favorite <3. I also love SNSD.

    Yay Breeeeeeeeezy was nominated,so happy for my little brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  75. noodles December 2, 2010

    I do feel like some people got snubbed. I’m kind of happy for my favorite artist but at the same time other artist deserved more.

  76. Ciara Stan 21 December 2, 2010

    Popularity contest…… so this is what the Grammy’s have come to…. what happened to nominating people with real talent?….

  77. Tami December 2, 2010

    If Justin Bieber wins ANY of these Grammy noms, which honestly he shouldn’t even have I WILL LOSE MY DAMN MIND!!SMH DRAKE BETTER WIN THAT S*** AND BIEBER ALBUM IS NOT GONNA WIN OVER LADY GAGA SORRY BIEBER!AT LEAST YOU COULD SAY YOU WERE NOMINATED TRY AGAIN NEXT YEAR……………..

  78. THEREALNICKY December 2, 2010

    @ RIHANNAFOREVER

    WHY WAS SADE SNUBBED?

    WHY WAS WHITNEY HOUSTON SNUBBED LAST YEAR WHEN IT WAS DEEMED A GRAMMY FAVORITE?

    WHY WAS ALICIA KEYS SNUBBED?

  79. Gilberto December 2, 2010

    THEREALNICKY
    Beyoncé is credited as one of the songwriters of Telephone. I can’t say the same thing for Rihanna.

  80. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @CiaraStan21
    I agree.

    @Noodles
    It doesn’t happen for ALL albums. The majority, however, yes.

    @Gilberto
    Oh, LOL I prefer Sunny. But 2NE1 has become my favorite Kpop group. I do prefer Kpop to American music, though. Do you speak Korean?

  81. azsxdc December 2, 2010

    HALO again ?!?!? didn`t she win it last year omfg…

  82. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    There are some exceptions, you know. Rules don’t apply to all.

  83. azsxdc December 2, 2010

    i can`t believe alicia keys did not even get one nom for her album ! this is b*******

  84. Tami December 2, 2010

    Lol Rihanna has a songwriter NEVER

  85. Gilberto December 2, 2010

    Ciara Stan 21

    Popularity contest…… so this is what the Grammy’s have come to…. what happened to nominating people with real talent?….

    Why should Grammy judge talent when no one cares about it nowadays? Today is all about the ‘package’. There’s only few real artists out there with real talent making big things. Take a look at Katy Perry, she’s completly awful live. And I still read people saying she is a good singer. Please!

  86. Tami December 2, 2010

    TRUE HOW THE F*** THEY GONNA SNUB ALICIA LIKE THAT HER ALBUM WAS F****** AMAZING AND NOMINATE Justin Bieber smh all the award shows are not talent just popularity what a DAMN shame………..

  87. zania December 2, 2010

    IGNORE RIHANNA FANS ABOUT CHRIS WON’T WIN AWARD. I AM SO HAPPY HE WAS NOMIMATED BECAUSE THAT MAN BEEN THROUGH ALOT THE PAST TWO YEARS. I AM MORE HAPPIER FOR HIM MORE THAN ANYONE WHO WAS NOMINATED. EVEN IF HE DOESN’T WIN THE POINT IS THE MAINSTREAM IS EXCEPTING HIM BACK AND FAME WILL KILL IN 2011 AND 2012. I GLAD MONICA WAS NOMINATED.

  88. PLAIN AND SIMPLE December 2, 2010

    Yessssssssss Chris 3 nom

  89. Kyle December 2, 2010

    I GUARANTEE RIHANNA IS WALKING AWAY WITH MORE GRAMMYS COME FEB!!!!! AND BY THAT TIME S&M SHOULD B HER 3RD HIT SINGLE FROM LOUD…2011 IS ALREADY LOOKING LIKE A GREAT YEAR FOR RIH:)

  90. ERIC December 2, 2010

    Wow! Gaga really stands a chance of winning album of the year. But it might be difficult since she (inexplicably) didn’t got nom for record and song of the year (#justdontgetit) but the tough one is on best female pop vocal performance. in best pop vocal album, they don’t even need to vote, she will win. on best dance recording the only competition is only girl. on pop collab telephone leads the way. best video, that’s no even a question, francis and heather will take it home. and how the hell johnny cash keeps having music videos if he’s dead?

    i’m also happy that lots of and US-underrated and international artists got nominated! wow! this list is exciting! BT, Robyn, La Roux, Florence + the machine, arcade fire.

  91. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ TheRealPsycho:

    Next time you call someone a buffoon, make sure you know how to spell it, otherwise the joke backfires. And Bruno’s nods are for individual SONGS that did very well on the charts, so poor example there.

    @ RihannaForever:

    I hated The Element of Freedom. Damn near fell asleep listening to it. Her worst album to date.

  92. azsxdc December 2, 2010

    GLEE GOT NOMINATED ?? WOAHHH….

  93. Gilberto December 2, 2010

    @ RihannaForever

    Sunny is my second favorite! She used to be cutest girl, but they messed her up with that blonde hair for Hoot era. I really don’t like 2NE1, I just like ‘Lollipop’ with BIG BANG. 2NE1 sound too urban and western for me. My second favorite group is T-ara.

    “I do prefer Kpop to American music”. I can say the same thing too.
    I don’t speak korean.

  94. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    Also, I would like to point out that the Best New Artist award usually curses the person who wins it, so pray that your fave doesn’t win that category.

    Justin Bieber stans on the other hand, need not pray.

  95. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    DEAD at your comment to Nicky.

    Really? I thought Element of Freedom was amazing. I guess I liked its maturity in comparison to her last albums though Diary is definitely a better album than TEOF.

  96. sunflower27828 December 2, 2010

    Christopher Maurice Brown has THREE Grammy nominations…….YEAH!!!YEAH!!!!!YEAH!!!!!! LIfe is good……..He’s being recognized for his vocal ability and his songwriting ability…..YEAH!!!!!YEAH!!!!!YEAH!!!!! Three nominations….YEAH!!!!!YEAH!!!!YEAH!!!!! Talent may be DELAYED…..but never DENIED…..YEAH!!!!YEAH!!!!!YEAH!!!!!!

  97. noodles December 2, 2010

    I’m not paying attention to the haters. Not today. Its not Chris’s fault that he still got 3 nominations even based off of being black-balled the majority of the time. Its not his fault that even with some of the sucky nominations he is one of the artist that actually have actual talent.

    I mean if your fave is nominated why hate on someone else? Celebrate pray they win and get over yourself. If not …… they will get their time.

  98. Wire December 2, 2010

    Rihanna is featured on the song so she will get a Grammy.

    She did win two Grammys for Run This Town with Jay & Kanye.

    You African people never ever know what the f*** you be talking about.

    Deuces had a chance if it was in the R&B category, but it’s not so Fist Brown might as well stay at home.

  99. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @Gilberto
    Sunny was really cute! I’m not loving the Hoot era, anyways though. It’s just not my favorite style from them. The Oh! and Run Devil Run eras were amazing.

    As for 2NE1, I guess I just like them because they sound like western music but better. I really like T-ara too! My favorite boyband is probably either Big Bang or SHINee.

    I speak Korean! It was probably the hardest thing I ever did though. I do remember hearing Kpop when I couldn’t understand much Korean, though, and even then it was amazing LOL.

  100. Lostonez December 2, 2010

    im def not tuning in to watch this year’s grammy just to see the same pplz win again..we all know eminem is going to clean up the show..n how the f*** alicia keys didn’t get nominated for unthinkable..i guess wen u r an artist n u care about other things than music they just over look your work. cuz i still cant c how alicia keys song spent 3 months @ #1 n no nominations just wow..n bad romance was the biggest song of 2009-2010

  101. NUNYA December 2, 2010

    IM SHOCKED FANTASIA, MONICA AND JAHEIM ALL DIDNT GET SNUBBED. And yes that deserved all caps. I do hope they all get some grammys because all 3 deserves some for their cds. I love every song. Congrats to them plus Tank and Chris Brown. Oh yeah Cee Lo, I hope he wins too. Jazmine Sullivan cd just dropped yesterday and her cd is good also.

    I swear beyonce pay the grammys to have her name staying on the ballots, its pathetic how every year shes on their and she havent released music since when? The grammys are a hot a mess at times.

  102. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ RihannaForever:

    Her first two albums were amazing, the best in my opinion. After that, she got inexplicably boring and predictable.

    As for the rock nominations, I’m so happy for The Black Keys and Muse! “Brothers” is one of my favorite records of the past year, and I know Muse got a lot of hate for “The Resistance”, but personally I think it’s a great album.

  103. HATIN IS FOR SUCKAS December 2, 2010

    Chris got some people mad its ok to be mad. Dont try to backtract and make excuse if Chris wins.

    #YouMad #StayMad

  104. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    I’m glad Janelle picked up a couple of nods too. Imagine if her album had been commercially successful, she would’ve racked up nominations in all categories.

  105. Beyonce Owns Your Fav. December 2, 2010

    @ AZSXDC

    That was for the recorded version. She is nominated for the live version this time.

    AND ALICIA KEYS WAS SNUBBED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WHY THE HELL IS SHE NOT NOMINATED AT ALL.

    Sorry Chris fans but why was Grafitti nominated over Elements of Freedom for contemp. R&B album?

    Why IN THE F*** IS TEENAGE DREAM NOMINATED FOR ALBUM OF THE YEAR OVER ELEMENTS OF FREEDOM BETTER YET WHY IS IT NOMINATED OVER THE ARCHANDROID.

    B**** PLEASE.

    ANYWAYS

    Beyonce & Lady Gaga For Best Collab.
    BEyonce for best pop vocals.
    Monica for Best R&B album
    Janelle Monae for best contemp. R&B album.
    Still Standing for Best R&B song
    Fanstasia for best R&B vocals.

    THe End.

  106. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    I liked her first 2 albums, her third was horrible in every sense of the word, while I found her 4th to be alright.

    I’m not a fan of The Black Keys but I am very happy/proud for Muse. Although tons of people disliked The Resistance, I found that record to be a masterpiece.

    Also, that is completely correct regarding Janelle. If she was more commercially successful, the masterpiece-classic The ArchAndroid would’ve SLAYED the 2011 Grammys.

  107. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @BeyonceOwnsYourFav
    SOOOO TRUE! Teenage Dream was SO generic, boring, and simple. The nominations for that album are insane – especially since it’s sold way less than The Element of Freedom.

  108. Gilberto December 2, 2010

    Wire

    Rihanna is featured on the song so she will get a Grammy.

    You have forgot that there’s some rules. She can’t win her own award in these categories: Song of the Year and Best Rap Song,

  109. Jair December 2, 2010

    JUSTIN BIEBER??!!!!! BEST NEW ARTIST??!!! Are the Grammy Awards on crack or something?! These nominations are a COMPLETE JOKE! Some are well deserved, but some are just laughable. It’s insane. TRUE MUSIC USED TO be appreciated. Damn, how the times change…

  110. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ RihannaForever:

    Me too. Especially the Exo-genesis symphony. The only song on that record I’m not feeling is “Undisclosed Desires”, but it takes on a life on its own when it’s performed live.

    Do you hate “Guiding Light”? Cause I find that everyone except me does, lol.

  111. Gilberto December 2, 2010

    Grammy will use Katy Perry’s nomination for ratings. She is hot now. But they won’t give Album of the year for her.

  112. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ Beyonce Owns Your Fav.:

    I think the better question is “Why the f*** did she get a nomination for best VOCAL pop performance”? Hell, why did she get nominated at all?

  113. noodles December 2, 2010

    @Beyonce Owns Your Fav
    I’m shocked about that too. Thats why I said I’m hyped but feel artist(that actually have talent) where snubbed. Alicia’s album was pretty good.

    @The Haters
    Just stop. “I Know you mad but so what, I wish you best of luck , now I’m fin to throw those Deuces Up” Thats me quoting a Grammy Nominated Song. Have a nice day.

  117. Secret Voice December 2, 2010

  118. Gilberto December 2, 2010

    RihannaForever,

    Me too. Hoot is just a rip off Wonder Girls’ past work. I REALLY love “Oh!”, it is my most played song this year. I am not fan of the boy bands, but I kinda like Big Bang (mainly T.O.P). Did you learn korean by yourself or are you a native?

  119. Wire December 2, 2010

    Run This Town won Best Rap Song and Rihanna got a Grammy.

    @Noodles, Zania, Jaz0195: Co-sign! *virtual high fives*

    CONGRATULATIONS BREEZY! Lol! Like he is really gonna see this! I am so f*cking happy for him! You did it Breezy! You proved the haters wrong! I hope they feel so stupid right about now!

    I knew ‘Deuces’ was gonna get a nom! I f*cking knew it! The ‘lil mixtape song that could’ is what I called it and it has made it all the way to the Grammy’s! Although, I am sure that “Love they Way You Lie’ will win. I’m not mad at that though. I am just so happy it got a nom because it really was a great record.

    Dang! I forgot all about ‘Take My Time’. I really didn’t like it that much, but out of all the songs in that category I think his toughest competition is Sade. It would be nice if he could take it home.

    I think it is kinda funny that ‘Graffiti’ got a nom! Lol! Just goes to show that it doesn’t matter how a album performs, it can still get a nom! Take that haters! #POW

    Whether or not he wins I am just elated that he was nominated because it proves that he is still getting recognized for his work and I know that means so much to him! Plus it proves the haters wrong (they know who they are) that said he would NEVER get a Grammy nod, never be mainstream, his career is over blah, blah, blah! I hope all of ya’ll feel real stupi right now! His career was NEVER over talent will ALWAYS prevail!

  129. the kiddz December 2, 2010

    Best female pop vocal performance. I think we all know who’s winning that. We coming for that wig Aretha (JUST KIDDING) Lol. I hope Janelle wins everything she’s up for and Gaga gets nothing. And Alicia? Her album was awesome. Katy Perry? Justin Beaver? That chick that goes “eh eh”?

  130. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @BeyonceOwnsYourFav
    LOL, exactly.

    @TrueBlue
    I agree. Muse are amazing live. As for their album, I LOVED “Guiding Light”, LMAO. “Exo-genesis Symphony” was great in my opinion. I liked “United States of Eurasia” (I think that was it’s title). My least favorite song was probably “Uprising” and even that was a great song.

    @Gilberto
    Exactly. I also don’t like the Wonder Girls very much. “Oh!” is an AMAZING song and I hope that they return more to that era in the future. I love T.O.P! But I do agree that the girl groups are better than the boybands.

    LOL, I’m actually half-Japanese. I can speak a lot of Japanese but I don’t consider Korean my 3rd language because I cannot write Japanese AT ALL. I get so confused by Japanese characters. I learned Korean by going to Korean school.

    It was really confusing at first but by learning the (really-short) Korean writing system and the basic fundamentals of the language, it’s easy. Pronunciation is the only difficult part of the language, to me.

  131. Gilberto December 2, 2010

    Wire
    Run This Town won Best Rap Song and Rihanna got a Grammy.

    Rap Song and Song of The Year are awarded to the writer(s)/composer(s) not to the performer(s).

    She is credited as one of the songwriters of ‘Run This Town’. Take a look at its writers: Shawn Carter, Robyn Fenty, Kanye West, Ernest Wilson, Jeff Bhasker, Alatas Athanasios.

    “Robyn Fenty” aka Rihanna.

    She isn’t credited as a writer on LTWYL, so she can’t win that awards.

    Okay now?

  132. noodles December 2, 2010

    Rih Stans are just hateful. Why celebrate being nominated? Well even though some nominations suck its still great to be nominated. Winning is great but be greatful for being nominated. I can tell some of you are messed up in the head so I’m done before I get to arguing. I have no time for that.

    Congrats to some of the nominess(Katy Perry can go sit down)!

  137. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    I agree in that Muse really is cementing themselves as the Queen of this generation because they’re successful and they are extremely talented and creative.

    Not to bring Nicki Minaj into this, but I just found out that LAURYN HILL likes her. Lil Kim really is mental.

    Oh, yeah I am, thanks! I have also been to Japan a few times. My dad is the Japanese one and he’s insane about Japan so we used to go there every 2-4 years. I guess that I’m less ignorant than SOME PEOPLE because I’ve experienced things worldwide and really tried to immerse myself into cultures and how they operate.

    LOL, my dad just about died when he found out I learned Korean. His parents were emigrants from Japan to here and so he’s very deep-rooted in Japanese traditions. He keeps pushing me to learn the Japanese writing system but it’s impossible. I don’t know how my brother learned CHINESE, which is even worse LMAO.

  138. Beyonce Owns Your Fav. December 2, 2010

    @BeyonceOwnsYourFav
    It’s great that Beyonce is nominated for a live song because that doesn’t occur very often. 41 nominations to date (I wonder if that is including her nominations with Destiny’s Child…) is amazing.

  140. Beyonce Owns Your Fav. December 2, 2010

    @RIHANNAFOREVER

    RihannaForever if Lauryn Hill likes Nicki Minaj than Lil Kim opinion is nothing I guess. LOL

    @ RihannaForever:

    That’s so cool! I’ve never been outside of North America, but I want to travel soooo badly. I especially like learning about other cultures. Japan seems like a very fun country to visit, especially Tokyo.

    I don’t think I can learn any language that doesn’t use the Roman alphabet. Props to you for learning Japanese and Korean! It all looks like a bunch of random scribbles to me, so I don’t know how non-native speakers can learn to write in it.

    And yeah, Lil Kim is gonna be PISSED!!!! Kind of like Grace Jones dissing Gaga, yet Madonna openly embracing her!

  142. Beyonce Owns Your Fav. December 2, 2010

    Also I am surprised Nicki Minaj is not nominated for Best New Artist. Does she have to have an album out before the deadline or what?

  143. lola December 2, 2010

    Okay, people need to stop saying that Rihanna is nominated for 4 Grammys! She is only nominated for 1 for “Only Girl” and is a featured artist in Eminem’s song “Love The Way You Lie.” It would be different if they did a duet like how Alicia Keys and Jay-Z did for “Empire State of Mind,” Notice it says Jay-Z & Alicia Keys, not Jay-Z featuring Alicia Keys. So if “LTWYL” wins, it’s Eminem’s win and Rihanna will get a Grammy for it depending on the writing credits which I believe she has none. Even if she does get a Grammy, it’s for being apart of someone else’s work, not her own so I don’t wanna hear that she won these Grammys when it wasn’t her own song.

    WTF at Katy Perry being nominated for album of the year? Her album hasn’t even sold that much. I would expect them to put Justin Beiber, Drake, or even Alicia Keys in that category before her. She also shouldn’t be nominated in Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. They must have ignored all of her damn horrible live performances because she proves that with a lot of editing and voice filters in the studio, a singer can actuall sound like they can sing well.

    Speaking of Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, they need to get out of Beyonce’s ass! Okay, you have some damn nerve giving her a Grammy for Best Female R&B Album last year but now wanna nominate her for a pop song. Beyonce is clearly POP now-a-days and shouldn’t win GRAMMYS that she doesn’t qualify for just because she’s black. Halo is also old as hell! They should’ve picked someone else.

    They need to take Ludacris’ bubblegum a** out the f**king hip-hop and rap categories. How the hell did he get nominated?

    Congrats to Chris Brown! He’s not going to win because he hasn’t had a big year, but at least they acknowledged him!

  144. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @BeyonceOwnsYourFav
    EXACTLY. I’m unsure as to whether I love or like Nicki because her musical genre is so unclear, but Lil Kim is NOTHING compared to Lauryn Hill who has made such a culturally beautiful impact with music, something that few artists are capable of.

    If Lauryn likes Nicki, Kim is nothing to me. The only female rappers that don’t like Nicki are Kim and Khia. Eve, Missy, Lauryn, Foxy – all support her.

  145. jewelz December 2, 2010

    #oop! beyonce has the most grammy nominations by a female artist (41) in history!

    her I Am Tour DVD certified double platinum in less than one week!

    she is nominaed for 2 grammys: best female pop vocal and best pop collaboration!

    while still dusting the 16 grammys she already has…

    #whomad???

  146. Foghorn December 2, 2010

    And yet again and talent of P!nk is overlooked.

    Not only did she have “So What”, “Please Don’t Leave Me”, “Funhouse” and “Bad Influence”, she also had “Glitter in the Air” which is by far the best offering of real singing ability of any pop star today. And they COMPLETELY ignored that STUNNING performance of “Glitter” at last years show?

    Just further proof that a large majority of Americans (particularly in the music business) wouldn’t know true singing talent if it smacked them across the head.

    P!nk, ignore these neanderthals and come back to Australia, where your talent and originality is truly appreciated.

  147. Yellow Gorillah December 2, 2010

    WTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTF! RIHANNA GOT SNUBBED!

    NOOOOO The grammy’s are just full of s*** I just cannot

    Ok yes rihanna is there 4 times but

    How the hell Can they not nominate Rated R I’m sorry Rated R for me personally was one of the best albums of 2009! god dame it even Alicia did not get nominated

    They NOminated F****** graffiti LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL DEAD!

    Sorry chris brown fans yall aint gone win NOTHING he is just a categorie Filler.

    But I am glad for some people like Jazmin Monica and Fantasia It’s about time the Rnb Ladies got recognised! But WTF

    No Rated R should have at least been nominated once *sighs* Rihanan will always get snubbed at these award shows but at least Numbers dont lie

    teenage dream f****** Graffiti HAHAHAH NOOO! The music industry really is dying

  148. O LeDoIt December 2, 2010

    Fantasia deserves to win a at lease 2 grammys

  149. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    Thanks! I really wish I could travel now, but all my money is spent on school. I really want to spend the next 2 years after the current studying in Korea, but I’m unsure if it’ll be possible.

    I tried to learn French a long time ago but for some reason, languages with characters are less confusing to me. Korean was simple for some unbeknownst reason to me, but I have honestly given up on trying to learn written Japanese. LOL, it’s so difficult.

    I like your comparison/analogy, LOL! I just hope that Nicki doesn’t respond to Kim’s disses as of late so that she can seem more mature, since she already did state some extremely valid points. The only thing that Kim could do to seem lower is to diss Lauryn Hill or Missy or someone like that. If she does, she’ll lose all respect in my book.

  150. Wire December 2, 2010

    Why would Lil Kim be pissed? She has her Grammy already.

    It’s not like Ludacris is going to win over Jay or Drake for that matter.

  151. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ Foghorn:

    OMG, I forgot about Pink, you’re right! How the f*** did “Funhouse” get overlooked? It’s one of the best pop albums in YEARS, goes to show you that all these award shows are about popularity first and foremost.

  152. MUSIC LOVER December 2, 2010

    Seriously Rihanna stans STFU, RR wasn’t a hit album! It did fairly well and I like the songs on it, but it wasn’t commercial enough to get recognized.

    I honestly believe Ke$ha and Jayson Derulo should have gotten nominated for best new artist. Alot of people hate on them, but those two had hitS this year. Too bad Justine Beaver will win for sure.

    Honestly I don’t care too much for this list. Eminem had the BEST album this year and he deserves all those nominations. Not only that, we all know he will fucken sweep the Grammies!!!!!!! I’m also glad Bruno Mars got the recognition he deserves as well! I don’t think he’ll win any Grammies, because it’s a fucken popularity contest, but I’m glad he’s getting recognition. They were two of the few artist this year who did not capitulate themselves to boring this dance crazed music era, and brought real true music, so in my opinion, they deserve to be on top of that list.

  153. LaLa December 2, 2010

  154. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    Pink Friday was released 2 albums past the deadline. I see her receiving nods for it in 2012, though.

  155. Dummies December 2, 2010

    Seriously.. all I have to say is Unthinkable was #1 on the R&B charts for 13 weeks (that’s 3 freakin months) and Alicia Keys had the best selling R&B album this year, and she’s not in any of the R&B categories? I call b*******.
    And that’s only one of many examples of why the Grammy’s are worth crap. Really now though, what credible music awards do we have left?

    __________________________________________________

    @ RihannaForever:

    I used to speak French, but I abandoned the language at one point, so now I’m barely fluent in it.

    Japanese looks real difficult alright, I wish you the best of luck in it.

    And Kim would have to be a real dumbass to diss Lauryn. She would have to kiss any chance of a comeback goodbye. I don’t like Nicki, but I give her props for not stooping to Kim’s level and responding with something equally nasty. Kim should just get over herself and focus on her own career. Beefs are so stupid, even as publicity stunts.

  157. Wire December 2, 2010

    If Eminem wins for LTWYL then Rihanna wins and that’s the bottom line.

    And even if that was the case then Rihanna would still win because she wrote the entire song.

  158. Laqueeshahdla December 2, 2010

    I agree. Nicki may not be the best, but she’s maintaining a mature, intelligent image by not stooping to the level that Kim is at. Kim really should release her own new music as opposed to fighting Nicki, which is just…pointless.

  169. theman December 2, 2010

    Go Monica Usher and Fantasia. I think Ursher will win his categories, he deseves them, altho Jaheim’s song is good to. R&b Female Vocal, i thought Alicia was a lock for that and r&b song. They have been snubbing the hell out of her lately. Idiots. Sade should have been nominated for album of the year. I hope she wins. I think they threw Katy in there for Album of The Year for ratings. Some of these nods are terrible. Faith Evans good job, Kelly Price good job. Hell even Mariahs Memoirs was a great album that deserved to be nominated in the best Contemporary field & she should have been nominated for best r&b vocal performance duo/group with Neyo. These are some odd nods. Beyonce’ Halo’ live again. Get the hell outta here.

  170. Rihanna Storm December 2, 2010

    CHECK YOUR FACTS AND NEXT TIME U WON’T LOOK DUMB.

  173. VA STAND UP!! December 2, 2010

    Now that I have calmed down some, let me get on to the other nominees and snubs.

    Congrats Monica! Her albums was amazing and true r&b! Even though she only got one nom, I am really happy for her! Fantasia,Jazzy and Faith as well, all true r&b singers. I didn’t even know that

    Congrats to Nicki on her nom, I bet Kim is mad! Lol!

    *DEAD* at Beyonce still getting noms on a album that is almost 3 years old! I love my girl Bey but DAMN!

    I really hope that Drake wins Best new artist over Justin Bieber! Drake is in a lot of categories with Eminem so I think his best chance is in Best New Artist.

    Now onto the snubs……….

    I am totally shocked that Trey didn’t get any noms? Damn! That’s messed up! He will probably get some next year then. I hope. *shrugs*

    Alicia Keys was totally snubbed! I really didn’t love her album but ‘Unthinkable’ was an amazing record and spent 13 weeks at No. 1!! How could it not get a nom?!

    I find it interesing that Katy Perry got a Best Album nod over Rihanna? I thought that Rih’s album was a ‘masterpiece’?? *shrugs* Oh well! *chuckles*

    Why the hell is Susan Boyle in a Pop category?? WTF?

    I find a lot of these nominations and snubs a lil suspect, but I am just so happy that Breezy got three noms! He has a lot of material coming out next year so I am sure that next year will definitely be his year! GO BREEZY!

  174. theman December 2, 2010

    Chris’s nod is suspect.

  175. Jasmine December 2, 2010

    RihannaForever id Eminem’s song wins record of the year Rihanna would also get a grammy. The awards are given to whosever name on the ballot and the “feat” vs “with” does not matter. That means she is up for 3 awards.

    I hope Fantasia or Monica wins a grammy this time. They both deserve them. Beyonce should not have been nomiated for Halo though because the song (both album and live version) was not released between Sept 2009 to Sept 2010 so it makes no sense. Then again, her dad is on the Grammy voting board so we know why she is on there.

    The same thing happened with me and French. I communicate with very few people who speak it (and not too often), and I don’t live in a country where I’m required to write it. So English ends up becoming my dominant language instead of my second.

  195. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    Exactly. The good thing is that my parents only speak Japanese when we’re around each other (except when my mum’s family visits) and that one of my closest friends whom I see frequently is Korean-speaking. I am always afraid, though, that the other two languages will be lost. That’s why I’m hoping that I will be able to live in Korea for a bit.

    The difficult part about dominant languages is that they don’t seem to fade at all for ease, they stick with you. Except for my middle school French teacher. Her native language was English but she had forgotten many words and how to spell.

    It’s also helpful to speak another language for jobs, but that’s mostly for Spanish and Chinese, as of late. However, it does seem like most any language can be helpful in some profession.

    If Chris wins a grammy I well be excited if he don’t win an award I will still be excited cause he atleast got nominated for an award outside the EBT awards when his haters said that he couldn’t get nominated outside of the EBT awards and said that his career was over which its not. Now if Chris does win a award I don’t want to see the people who said he wasn’t gone win backtracking or making any excuse for why he won.

    Ol girl didn’t write no damn LTWYL she may have added two or three words but not the whole song lets be real. Being delusional is a h*ll of a drug some people need to stay away from it.

    Also there were a lot of pessimists insinuating that Chris’ career was over and he’ll never be nominated outside of BET Awards. You were proven wrong. When you are spiteful toward another person, because they are receiving success while you’re heavily wishing for the worst, God will prove to you how wrong you are.

    ———————————————————————————————–

    Yes! I was too , I am not gonna lie. I totally saw ‘Deuces’ getting nominated, I knew that for sure, but I didn’t expect anything to get nominated off of ‘Graffii’. Especially not for best R&b Contemporary Album,

    ‘Graffit’ wasn’t a bad album though. He had some good material on there.

    “Take My Time’ and ‘Movie’ were both really great r&b records.

    I think he should have been nominated for ‘Crawl’. I think that one of his best records lyrically and vocally. When he perfrormed that at the BET SOS Haiti telethon, he sounded amazing. It was such a great record that got ignored.

    But whatevs! I am just so happy to see that my boy got recognition for his hard work! So many people (mostly Rih stans) counted him out and said he would never reach this level again and I’m estatic that he PROVED THEM WRONG!!! The Grammy’s is the highest honor in music so the fact that he is nominated proves that mainstream still recognizes him! I hope that everyone thay doubted him feels really stupid right about now!

    I loved “Deuces”, so yes, that was obvious to me that it would receive a nod. However, Graffiti…I don’t know it just didn’t seem like it would happen.

    Graffiti was a great record and I loved that it was very R&B-influenced, so it’s great that that album received nominations and was noticed. I do agree with you about “Crawl” though. That song is absolutely stunning and his SOS performance was amazing. The fact that THAT song wasn’t nominated individually is somewhat crazy to me

    I don’t understand what is going on with Rihanna stans. A lot of Chris Brown stans may not like Rihanna, but they don’t hate on her (some do) like so many Rihanna stans hate on Chris.

    Chris’s nod is suspect.

    ———————————————————————————-

    It’s only ‘suspect’ to the Rih stans and haters who doubted him. No matter how ‘suspect’ you or anyone else think it is, he still got three nominations for what is considered to be the highest honor in music!

    @ RihannaForever:

    You’re dead on about the UK pumping out better artists than we are as of late… I mean, there are plenty of talented artists here, but the problem is that none of them are getting noticed. The UK embraces variety, both mainstream and alternative artists get the same amount of love. Over here, you’re a nobody if you don’t conform to the mainstream. Even UK acts say that our Top 40 radio is so homogenized compared to theirs. That’s why I can’t wait for major labels to completely lose their power, and mainstream music has a chance of being good once again.

  221. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

  225. #YeahISaidIt December 2, 2010

    @Rihannaforever i believe he’s gonna win that category. The chances are very high cause the song fits the category perfectly better than any song based on the category. Am not sure about other categories his nominated on but Deuces might be the first mixtape song in history to win a grammy. The chances are very very high

  226. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    Exactly! The UK is so amazing to me musically because they have lots of hugely successful indie/alternative artists and lots of hugely successful mainstream artists. The US is the largest music market in the world but it’s difficult because you’re a nobody if you’re not a mainstream artist these days.

    Even places like Japan are like the UK. Utada Hikaru is huge in Japan but her music, when compared to American music, fits under the R&B/alternative genre.

    It’s happening quickly. I just want the labels to collapse quickly so that we have artists that have more talent reaching more success. There are so many amazing artists that are considered nobodies because they aren’t releasing generic dance music like everyone else.

  227. Lele December 2, 2010

    lets be serious people. nicki minaj, ke$ha, and jason derulo didnt get any nominations because they have NO talent. have ou seen them live? the grammys dont care how many albums are sold r how high a single charts. its all about talent.(except katy perry & justin bieber, i dont get their nominations)

    katy perry doesnt deserve pop nominations over pink or christina aguilera. thats just wrong.

    No (sane) person actually hates an artist, only the delusional stans that overhype everything their fave does and unnecessarily put down other artists. Then that dislike sometimes subconsciously transfers to that artist. Really, if I only met Beyoncé stans like S***, I would end up disliking Bey by association. Same with some Gaga stans. They need to calm down and realize that their behavior reflects on their fave. I’ve never had a problem with Adam Lambert, but I swear, he has stans that make people like Nicki look perfectly sane by comparison. Try saying he’s average (NOT terrible, just average) to his stans, and see if they won’t attack you like angry lions. Even he’s had to tell them off on Twitter.

    Thanks! It’s kind of insane with many of the other Rihanna stans being that way and I think they’re all lying saying that they don’t like ONE Chris Brown song. A lot of them loved Chris Brown until the incident and stopped liking him because of it.

    I don’t think that that constitutes as a reason to stop liking someone’s music. You can hate their personality if you want to, but I think that music should be judged from an unbiased point of view.

    I actually have Chris Brown’s 2nd and 3rd albums as well as the Fan of a Fan mixtape and a few of the songs from the In My Zone 2 mixtape. I really liked “Yeah 3x” so I’m hoping that it really does well on the charts to propel F.A.M.E. When does that come out anyways?

She deserves to be well-known.

  233. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    Perfectly explained. I don’t understand how people can hate artists. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Only insane stans seem to do that, though I must say that your examples are great. Stans like S*** are…delusional. However, stans like BeyonceOwnsYourFav are logical and sensical. Then there’s Drew…I guess they’re more sane than S*** but more delusional than BeyonceOwns LOL.

    I actually commented on an Adam Lambert post on this other blog that I can’t name without MY COMMENT BEING HELD FOR MODERATION (TGJ! LOL), but his stans WENT AFTER ME. I only said that “For Your Entertainment” (the song) was a bad choice for a lead single for him.

    Considering how poorly executed the previous Grammy nominations 2010, this is an improvement. It’s not perfect, I think Alicia Keys got snubbed and Rihanna should have gotten a “Rude Boy” nod, but it’s decent. Take a look at that R&B category! All of the underdogs that wouldn’t see the light of day on mainstream are in there! Congrats to Kem, Jaheim, El Debarge, and Faith!

  237. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @VaStandUp!!
    Exactly. I really do hope he wins! It would be great for that to happen only because it’s the best for that category and the most true to it, in my opinion. It is great that he’s nominated for an award in that category with so many amazing artists, though.

    @TrueBlue
    Really? In the Big Apple!?! That’s crazy! In Seattle, lots of people know Muse but I know what you mean about Regina. I love her music and creativity but everyone thinks she’s a figure skater when I mention her.

    I also hate the Twilight soundtracks because, although the artists earn success, some people think they discovered them. After Muse and Paramore did songs for the soundtracks, I met tons of people online and in reality who thought that they discovered Muse and Paramore – when I’ve known them for years…SMH!

    Good point. It amazes me that Kanye promoted My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by talking about his hate for Taylor Swift but he still sold about 500k first week. He may make a great record but I’m still surprised by that. I thought for a while that he had changed but I was wrong…LOL.

    @ RihannaForever:

    When there’s an Adam Lambert post ANYWHERE, the delusional stans come out in droves. That also attracts trolls who deliberately say inflammatory things, because they know that the hypersensitive stans will overreact. And they have a tendency to make over-the-top predictions about his future, just like the dumb Rihanna stans on here. As a result, everything he does ends up looking like a flop because the stans predict it was gonna break records left and right. Oh, and they make a habit of comparing him to older legends and saying he will be as huge as them. When you try to logically explain, in a non-hating manner, why the comparisons are off-base, they go mad. Constructive criticism is the equivalent of wishing death upon him to them. God forbid you say ONE performance wasn’t all that great.

    That’s why I could never be a celebrity. I would not want to attract such people for fans.

    If the albums were nominated based upon how much were sold, then the list would have been longer not to mentioned ‘The Element of Freedom,’ ‘Rated R,’ and other gold and platinum selling albums would have been nominated as well. However…

    According to the Grammy website, “The GRAMMYs are the only peer-presented award to honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, WITHOUT REGARD TO ALBUM SALES OR CHART POSITION.” (http://www2.grammy.com/Recording_Academy/).

    So, basically, the amount of albums sold by an artist and/or the amount of weeks an artist has remained #1 on the chart(s) is irrelevant when choosing nominees for a category.

  245. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    Yes! I once tried to say that his vocals sounded a bit off in one performance and that the pitch sounded incorrect, and I was ATTACKED. I stan for Rihanna but even I admit that some of her performances aren’t great. Even stans should give construcitve criticism. How can you be a yes person? That’s not the right person for celebrities. Not that I know Rihanna or anything, but you can’t be that way LOL.

    That’s true as well about making things seem like flops. An Adam Lambert stan once told me that “If I Had You” would become the most successful single of 2010 and it didn’t hit the top 20. The single didn’t flop by any means but saying things like that makes it seem that way.

    I find it really funny that some of Rihanna’s stans on this website said that Loud would sell 400,000+ first week (one person said 5 million and then said that would be a disappointment) and then have conveniently yet to mention the real first week sales. I may have been off with my 250k first week prediction, but DAMN! LOL.

  246. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ RihannaForever:

    I know, most of the Muse fans on the band’s forum, and in the YouTube comments, HATE Twilight because of that. I don’t care for the books or films, but if there’s ONE thing that can come out of that highly overrated series, it’s exposure to good bands. I discovered Muse and Paramore four years ago, yet because I’m a black teenage girl, telling older Muse fans that I’m a fan of them means they automatically assume that I’m a Twilight fan, especially since I like pop music.

    The problem is that here in New York, we only have one (that I know of) major rock station. So therefore, bands like Muse don’t get much exposure, although Uprising has been played to death. I discovered them on Fuse TV, and listened to their other songs on satellite radio, hence becoming a fan. I discovered Regina on VH1, she was featured on “Artists You Oughta Know”.

    #1 R&B song , but no nod for “Can’t Be Friends” in male/vocal performance

    #4 HOT 100 US Charts “Bottoms Up” but no nod for Best rap/sung collabo

    “Yesterday” – Toni Braxton /Trey Songz got no nod for Best duo/vocal performance but Chris Brown and Tank did for “Take My Time”????

    “Passion, Pain, & Pleasure” was released before Grammy Deadline and it’s Gold, how is it not nominated for Best Contemporary r&b album?

    Regardless of if you are fans of someone or not, you have to be logical enough to see who was snubbed.

If more Rihanna stans were honest about her weak performances, then perhaps she would hear about those complaints and improve on herself. I remember a sane Rihanna stan said that the delusional stans are hurting her rather than helping her by constantly bragging about her sales and pretending she’s a perfect performer. Which is true. Same with Katy Perry stans. Instead of admitting the girl could use a LOT of improvement, they just turn a blind eye and lie to themselves about her being a great performer.

    Exactly! Artists do find out what their fans say and if fans show disappointment when it occurs, improvement could occur. Katy and Ke$ha could use LOTS of improvement in the performance department and Rihanna needs some just less than they do and then they’d all be really great performers. Stans/fans just need to stop acting like they’re the second coming of Jesus and be honest.

    *DEAD* at your last sentence! That’s actually kind of true…it’s like stan used to mean superfan but some STALKERS have replaced its original meaning with maniac/mental hospital resident.

    We used to have more rock stations, but over the course of the past few years they’ve shut down and been replaced by Top 40 pop stations. The last one that got shut down was K-rock in 2007 (or 2008). Imagine my shock when I tuned in to it one day, only to hear The Black Eyed Peas instead of Stone Temple Pilot or Pearl Jam. I thought I accidentally turned the dial on the wrong station, but nope, they got shut down. I was so angry. So from that point on, I just stopped voluntarily listening to mainstream radio.

    Oh, okay! I’m actually really excited for F.A.M.E. if what I’ve heard from it is any indication of what it will sound like. The good thing about him is that I think each album he releases is better than the last which shows he’s growing as an artist. Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna – they all do the same in my opinion. Usher was until Raymond v. Raymond. That was kind of a weak album for me.

  264. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ RihannaForever:

    Yes, that’s EXACTLY how I feel about Brooklyn and Manhattan, my two favorite boroughs.

    Manhattan is perfect for work and play, and Brooklyn is perfect for living in. It’s less hectic. One thing I despise about Manhattan is the traffic jams. Even I find it too frantic to navigate in sometimes. But it is MAGICAL during the holidays, especially at Macy’s. Their display windows are so beautiful.

  265. ash December 2, 2010

    RIHANNA gonna big this time.
    Believe me,..she will receive a lot of awards along with Eminem with Love The Way You Lie.
    and i’m pretty sure she’s gonna win via Only Girl song.

    Gaga will facing hard time for the Grammy.
    Album of the year would go to Lady Antblum, Eminem or Arcade Fire.
    The Fame Monster with full of s**, penis and bisex things will ‘of coz never win’.

    Gaga may go for Best Dance Recording, but Rihanna with Only girl is far better than Dance In The Dark song.
    For best pop female vocal,…Susan Boyle will win this time.

    That’s my prediction. But I believe,…the collab of Rihanna and Eminem will BIG on that night.

  266. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    Oh, I see. But I agree with you on radio. I used to listen to all the time but now I just have my iPod/Youtube/computer to listen to my favorite songs and be my own radio because radio just kind of decreased in quality as of late. K-rock? What the hell? LOL. I love K-pop but still…I love Christmas songs! LOL that’s like my favorite part of this time of year these days.

  267. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    Completely! I’m not big on Queens or the Bronx and I feel that Long Island just feels so out of touch with the Big Apple but I love the Manhattan and Brooklyn. Manhattan is too crazy to live in, and the traffic is insane, but work/play (like you said) are great there. Brooklyn has some cute apartments, too.

    Really? Seattle’s so boring during the Christmas season, LOL. I’ve only ever been to NYC during the summer, so I’ve never seen anything but photos, but it seems beautiful.

  268. Drew December 2, 2010

    Has anyone heard that Nicki song “Catch Me”..? The song is way better than anything on the standard edition of Pink Friday – I don’t know WHY she didn’t put it on the standard and release it as a single.

  269. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ RihannaForever:

    No, the name of the station was K-Rock, I didn’t mean Korean rock, lol! Actually, they are still running, but only as an internet station: http://www.krockradio.com/

    And I mainly use my iPod and computer as my personal radio as well. I occasionally check out Fuse and VH1 Classic (where I discovered a lot of older artists).

    I don’t watch Fuse as often, though. But I love how they play both alternative and mainstream music, although I notice that over the years they play more mainstream than alternative. Is Steven’s Untitled Rock Show still on?

  270. calley December 2, 2010

    Bee and Gaga can go to hell!!

    hope rihanna win big big big.
    hey c’mon, with 9 singles #1 on Hot 100, she proves she the best singer.
    and Love The Way You Lie will win as the record of the year.
    Really hope Telephone will lose to B.O.B.
    A stink song like Telephone are completely a trash in this industry. Lucky Britney coz didnt take the song and leave it to the monster b**** GaGa and freak Beyonce.

    What the hell with Dance in The Dark by Gaga? Only Girl will slays that b**** and shows she’s out of the league.

    @ RihannaForever:

    Oh, New York is the best place to be in during the holidays. It’s so festive. Even if you’re depressed, you will be in great mood because of the environment. I’ve had friends from up North visit here for the first time and not wanting to leave, lol!

  272. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    Rockefeller Center has a skating rink during the winter season, too!

  273. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    No, it ended last December! And LOL about the Krock thing…I always do stuff like that. As for Fuse, I visit that often but I have come to like VH1 Classic because older music is hard to access these days. I do agree though that they have done a lot of mainstream showcasing lately instead of alternative…

  274. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    LOL, I would LOVE to be in a big city during Christmas! I’ve heard about Rockefeller and the ice rink. I was there a few summers ago and it was so great so I always think being there during the winter season would be amazing.

    It rarely snows and stays snowing for a long period of time in Seattle so it’s usually just cold, grey, cloudy, and wet. Yay!

  275. ke$hus December 2, 2010

    get $leazy b****** 🙂

  276. Big Red December 2, 2010

    @Drew, I know and its cool. But some others (not you) were making it seem as album sales and #1 hits on charts were the ONLY reason an album is nominated. Since ‘Graffiti’ was nominated, despite selling less than its counterparts and never charting #1, perhaps it was chosen based on other reasons.

    Also I love the nice, calm chat between some posters (True Blue, Rihanna Forever, VA Stand Up, etc). It overshadows the negativity that was posted earlier. Good job!

  277. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ RihannaForever:

    Damn, Steven’s been canceled for a whole year, and I didn’t even know! I discovered some alternative bands through that show, and Steven was my favorite Fuse VJ.

    It was the only program dedicated solely to rock music on that station. Looks like they’ve MTV’d themselves. Looks like it’s only a matter of time before reality shows replace the music.

    BTW, I’ve been to Vancouver, BC, so I know what you mean about the crappy weather. It is quite depressing. Although when I’m in New York, I love cloudy wet weather, strangely enough.

  278. Drew December 2, 2010

    @BigRed
    Oh, okay. It’s kind of a popularity contest but it’s obvious that talent and work does have some to do wit it.

    I also do love the nice convos. Like it’s normally so crazy. And not to blame it on anyone, THEREALNICKY, but it’s always calmer and more sophistcated when SOMEONE leaves, you know? ^^

  279. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ Big Red:

    Yeah, civility isn’t very popular on this site, lol.

    Christina Aguilera should’ve got a nomination for “You Lost Me”, best pop vocals or femle.

    But Trey, damn TREY SONGZ WAS SNUBBED

    #1 R&B song , but no nod for “Can’t Be Friends” in male/vocal performance

    #4 HOT 100 US Charts “Bottoms Up” but no nod for Best rap/sung collabo

    “Yesterday” – Toni Braxton /Trey Songz got no nod for Best duo/vocal performance but Chris Brown and Tank did for “Take My Time”????

    “Passion, Pain, & Pleasure” was released before Grammy Deadline and it’s Gold, how is it not nominated for Best Contemporary r&b album?

    Regardless of if you are fans of someone or not, you have to be logical enough to see who was snubbed.

    Congrats to El Debarge and Chris Brown. “Deuces” was a number one record for a record breaking amount of time so it’s deserved.

    ——————————————————————————————

    I agree with everything yiuo just said. It’s a shame about Trey, A.Keys and X-Tina but I am just so damn happy for Breezy!

  281. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ Drew:

    90% of the time, it’s the PSYCHOS like Nicky and Wire that instigate s*** around here.

  282. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    LOL. But yes, I agree. It liked Steven a lot, and although I love pop music and the mainstream industry, I also like to have the other genres, too. DEAD at your reality show comment, BTW.

    It is VERY depressing. It snowed like a week ago and I was thrilled…until it melted a day later. I guess the adrenaline (at least for me) that a huge city like NYC gives you changes things? I’m from L.A. so I’m still not used to this weather, LOL. It is nice to have some variation, though. It’s always sunny or slightly cloudy in L.A. and rarely very cold.

  283. SundayNews December 2, 2010

    A s** song is about s**, describing s**, or set for a sexual situation.

    “Can’t Be Friends” is about a failing platonic relationship. The relationship USED to have s**, and that’s what messed it up but the song is about the after affects of that relationship.

    Only half the songs on Trey Songz “PPP” and “Ready” (which was nominated for Grammy’s last yers) are s** songs. People assume it’s about about s** for him because he realised to very sexual videos (Invented S** & Neighbors Know My Name) but in actuality he sings about love, flirting, breakups, and clubbing .

    01. (Interlude)
    02. Love Faces – S**
    03. Massage – S**
    04. Alone – FLIRTING
    05. Bottoms Up (Feat. Nicki Minaj) – DRINKING & CLUBBING
    06. (Interlude)
    07. Can’t Be Friends – PLATONIC FRIENDSHIPS
    08. Please Return My Call – LOVE & MISSING SOMEONE
    09. Made To Be Together – LOVE
    10. (Interlude)
    11. Red Lipstick S**
    12. Doorbell – S**
    13. Passion (Interlude)
    14. Unfortunate – LOVE LOST, You’re missing out song
    15. Panty Droppa – somewhat a S** song, (more about getting the girl to have s**)
    15. Blind – SONG ABOUT A SEEMINGLY PERFECT GIRL CAUSING PAIN FOR HER GUY
    16. You Just Need Me – FLIRTY , I CAN GIVE YOU THE WORLD song

    4 , maybe 5 s** songs equal a s** album???? No

    And “READY” had more s** songs and was nominated for Grammy’s last year. So if you say “s** cd won’t get awards” then you totally missed this fact.

    I think it’s some insider stuff. He was INTENTIONALLY overlooked.

    If thousands of voters said “who has a cd selling a couple of thousand, who has r&b hits and US hits? Who’s been touring? Who’s on tv?” All that would’ve put Trey Songz on their radar. He had Hot 100 hits, r&b hits, critics reviewed his album well, he had a BET docu-series, and an MTV Unplugged, he was on three tours , 1 with Monica , 1 with Jay Z, and one with Usher right now where he is getting better reviews in newspapers then Usher.

    @Drew.. I Won’t call her QUEEN for faithful reasons but as a Bey stan I will say this, Beyoncè Giselle Knowles ROCKS!!! MuthaFuckas!!!! Hahaha !!! @Rihanna Forever, with every comment you make, I love you more!!!! I wish every stan was like you!!!! Dueces could be down in history!!!! Wow!!!! First mixtape song to get a Grammy!!! I aint he is going to win, but I hope he will!!!!! Luving him!!! UPDATE – I stan for Bey, A Keys, Nicki Minaj (lil’ Kim who????) And the best in tha business- Chris Brown!!!

    I noticed! Some people is CRAZY, LOL.

  286. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @BBCocoChannel
    LOL, thank you! I wish more stans were kind and less instigating on this site, LOL. I really hope he wins! That would be so great! You stan for Nicki!?!? I stan for Ri and kind of for Nicki. I just love her, LOL.

    Did you hear she’s making videos for FOUR, yes FOUR more songs from Pink Friday? She’s making videos for “Moment 4 Life” (which is the next single), “Save Me”, “Girls Fall Like Dominoes”, and “Fly”. It hasn’t been confirmed which of them will be singles though. I really love “I’m the Best”…

    @Drew
    I heard “Catch Me!” It’s probably my favorite song from Pink Friday. It’s so well done and it’s very mixtape Nicki with a pop/urban twist and great lyrics.

  287. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ RihannaForever:

    LOL, all the s*** I can’t tolerate in other cities, when it happens in NY, for some reason I’m more accepting of it.

    We normally don’t have snow until late December/January. And then around February, we have what you call Nor’Easters. They’re HELL. You can’t even go outside to pick up your paper, because it is that bad. Below freezing, and enough snow to reach your knees.

    There are some good things within the mainstream industry, but most of it sucks today. Can’t wait for that to change.

  288. Drew December 2, 2010

    LMAO @BBCocoChannel putting “!!!” after each sentence. B DOES THAT TO YOU!!! LOL. But seriously, she does. Beyonce is amazing!

  289. antertain December 2, 2010

    Monica shoulda been also in the Best R&B Song Category..

    Some good contenders in each category though.

    GOOD LUCK PEOPLE!

  290. Drew December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    Really? That’s crazy! It normally stays above 20 here in Seattle. As for the industry, it’s alright. I just hope the labels collapse or become a bit less crazy/corrupted so that indie/alternative artists bring other genres back.

  291. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

  292. RihannaForever December 2, 2010

    @TrueBlue
    Oh, I see. That’s so wild with the coldness though! I just hope some people like Janelle really hit big because some REALLY deserve it.

  293. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ Drew:

    Agree about the labels. Those devils in expensive suits (the record execs) need to get lost! They’re ruining music! It’d be nice to hear a rock band that isn’t Nickelback on mainstream radio, for once!

    Well, it’s been a very nice chat. Goodnight, everyone! 😀

  294. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 2, 2010

    @ RihannaForever:

    Agree about Janelle. But she’s new, so still got time.

    Again, good night (or rather, good morning for me, since it’s nearly 4 AM where I live)!

  295. Big Red December 2, 2010

    @Drew, I agree, award shows are popularity contests especially the ones that ask for viewers to vote on their site. An artist talent and works should always play a role but sometimes people are biased at least with the Grammy’s you know the choosing is based on merit too. And I agree with you about Nicky. I remember when I tried giving some advice and speak some common sense to him (?) it was a waste of time. I was literally talking to a brick wall. I don’t understand why someone is so obsessed with a person they dislike but know more about their projects than some fans do. Its pathetic.

    @True Blue, the ongoing attacks were the main reason I left but now I’m back. I tried for so long to be the peacemaker and, although there were a few people who agreed with me, for the most part Nicky and Wire and some other stans continued the “stan wars.” I stan for my faves to an extent but never to the degree that some stans do – death threats made against artists and their family members and their fanbases. I couldn’t do it.

  296. Lisa December 2, 2010

    Best Dance Recording – Bad Romance (Lady Gaga)

    Katy Perry for record of the year, album of the year and best pop vocal performance???!!!! What were they thinking?! Yes for Deuces being nommed though, it deserves it. But damn these nominations are a joke.

  299. number1k9 December 2, 2010

    What is up with these award shows!

    What is this like the 3rd show to NOT nominate the Black Eyed Peas?

    I don’t understand how they do not get nominated for a song like “Imma Be,” in at least ONE category. Not to mention “Rock That Body” could have definitely been nominated for best Dance Recording. IDK it’s upsetting to see these shows and ceremonies not give any love to a group who they heavily nominated in the past, who has had a successful past year. yet Beyonce can get nominated for a live version of “Halo.” Which they did to her before, stretching out her singles to nominate them years after! WTF!

    I do not get it, but whatever! Bring on the Super Bowl for the Black Eyed Peas halftime show! ! !

  300. MissImpartial December 2, 2010

    I can not believe that they did not put B.O.B Airplaines as record of the year or best collaboration the same applies for Billionaire song from the other guy forgot his name.
    I think those two songs deserve to be nominated not the Nothing on You s***. I can’t believe that they also have not nominate Christina Aguilera for Best Vocal performance for You Lost Me. You might say it flopped but we are talking performances. Katy Perry album of the Year for the most bubblegum of hit of the century. As for her getting best Vocal performances I did not hear anything from year that would justify this.

  301. MissImpartial December 2, 2010

    Also about Rihanna if she receives another grammy for another collabo that is a joke. I mean has she ever won one without a rapper. As for Kelly Rolland not being nominated for best Dance song with commander I do not understand. I am also suprised that Alicia Keys or Pink are not nominated. They always leave the really talented out and nominate the most Mainstream how esle can you explain these joke nominations.

  302. Bbcocochannel December 2, 2010

    What is the difference between a song and record????

  303. jane December 2, 2010

    I FEEL THESE ALBUMS COULD HAVE GOTTEN MORE SHINE IF WE LIVED IN A JUST WORLD
    1.THE ARCHANDROID
    2.SOLDIER OF LOVE
    3.ELEMENT OF FREEDOM
    4.DISTANT RELATIVES

    I WOULD NEVER HAVE THOUGHT THAT THE GRAMMYS WOULD EVER SNUB ALICIA LIKE THAT,I THOUGHT SHE AND BEYONCE WERE THEIR DARLINGS????

    ANYWAYS CONGRATS TO EVERYONE AND TO BEY FOR MAKING HISTORY AS THE MOST NOMINATED FEMALE IN GRAMMY HISTORY

  304. RAY December 2, 2010

    TO THOSE SAYING THEY DONT UNDERSTAND WHY AND HOW BEY GOT NOMINATED AGAIN FOR HALO
    1ST ITS THE LIVE VERSION, FROM HER WYNN LAS VEGAS TOUR
    2ND IT CAME OUT DURING THE ELIGIBILITY PERIOD
    3RD SHE SUNG WELL

    HOWEVER I THOUGHT CHRISTINA WOULD BE THERE FOR YOU LOST ME AND ALICIA TOO,
    THEY EVEN SNUBBED A WHOLE SADE
    SADE WAS THE MOST CERTAIN BY REVIEWERS AND ANALYSERS FOR ALBUM OF TH YEAR
    HELL, EVEN THE MOST CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ALBUM LAST YEAR,THE ARCHANDROID WAS SNUBBED
    EVEN LADY GAGA WAS SUBBED FOR RECORD AND SONG OF THE YEAR
    SMH BUT KATY GETS ONE???
    SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT RATED R, BUT THAT IS RIRI’S BEST ALBUM TO DATE
    SHE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN SOME NOM’S
    NAS AND DAMIAN MARLEYS DISTANT RELATIVES TOO COULD HAVE GOTTEN SOME NOMS

  305. RAY December 2, 2010

    BUT I AM GLAD MONICA FINALLY DIDNT GET SNUBBED IN RNB CATEGORIES

  306. UGh December 2, 2010

    so happy El Debarge got nominate. he needs to win too.

    ONLY GIRL (IN THE WORLD) i just don’t get how that song is nominated for anything. it’s so blah and when i hear it in the club ppl don’t crazy or anything.
    Anyway Eminem is definitely gonna win an award although i can’t stand the b******.

  307. amar December 2, 2010

    so glad jaheim,john legend, fantasia, monica, raheem, musiq soulchild etc have all been nomitated

    but where is donnell jones-lyrics? that was prob one of the best r and b albums we had in like 2 years

  308. ~AalexisR~ The Summer King (The Bahamas) December 2, 2010

    Usher performed at the AMA’s and so Did Alicia last time and I guess they’re still mad at her. Riri did too so I guess they cut hers down. I really can’t stand these people. I’m not gonna support this anymore. I’ll watch it online.

  309. Shouw December 2, 2010

    OMGGGGGGGGGGG i’m SOO PROUD OF CHRIS BROWN !!!

    I hope he gonna win at least 1

    And good 4 lady gaga i think she’s gonna win like 2 or 3 grammy

    oh yeah BEE Break an other record :DD

  310. Shouw December 2, 2010

    And I got No Idea wth is katy perry doing in the list??

    and where is rihanna i mean rated R??? She so lucky to have this duet with eminem

  311. Jasmine December 2, 2010

    Katy perry up for vocal performance? Lol

  312. MissImpartial December 2, 2010

    Beyonce should not be nominated for a song she already won.

    That is just way to throw her name in it. I also can not understand how she won with her worst song of all Single Ladies and never won with her best Ring the Alarm. Just shows the biggest selling hits win not the ones who have the best quality.

  313. AinthatsomeSHHH December 2, 2010

    I wanna say first congrats to all nominees. While it was surprising that some wasn’t nominated, they will definitely have their season soon. #Teambreezy we still have struggles to overcome but as a team supporting Chris brown, all things are possible. To #rihannanavy (sane ones lol) I do NOT hate Rihanna and Im glad you guys support her the way you guys do. All we can do is pray and vote at this time. God will handle the rest.

    Now to throw shade: Katy perry #sitalltheewaydown YOU WILL NOT get that against GAGA Nomaam. Gaga is the shyt!!

  314. Secret Voice December 2, 2010

    The best song on Grafitti in my opinion is ” Fallen Down “,it’s a MASTERPIECE in my humble opinion.Congrats again to Chris Breeeeeeeezy!

  315. Hmm December 2, 2010

    Alicia Keys didn’t get snubbed her last album just was blah. And some of y’all are talking about popularity contest. Have you seen the Nominations for best Female R&B Vocal ? Faith Evans, Kelly Price, Fantasia,Monica,And Jazmine all REAL Singers that could sit most of every other so called singer down by just warming up. Trey Songz isn’t here because he doesn’t deserve it. He just bit R.Kelly’s Style with ready so why would they even nominated him. Plus people tripping Trey is nice on the eyes good in the studio but onstage it’s like watching an 6th grader give a concert. Rihanna may have alot of #1’s but she has yet to win a grammy solo. Beyonce up for the same thing again with the same song..Filler but then again she’s that good where she comes out with a live version and it get’s nominated again. And what’s with the Katy Perry Hate. Sure she’s not the best singer but she’s been decent this year last but not least Em I’m a fan but his lastest album doesn’t deserve all the nominations because it pales in comparison to his former self

  316. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare December 2, 2010

    So, i just woke up and I thought that I was either hallucinating or in the middle of a nightmare when I read that Katy Perry was nominated for Album of the Year for “Teenage Dream.” However,I see that it’s really true. Nobody has stopped the Grammy presses and said “i’m so sorry but we, uh…, seemed to have made some, uh…mistake.” None of that.

    *pressing Life Alert button- DEAD*

  317. tones December 2, 2010

    I’m not feeling Chris Brown being nominated for Best R&B Contemporary Album over Trey Songz for Passion, Pleasure and Pain or The Element of Freedom by Alicia Keys or Stronger with Each Tear by MJB, Graffiti was garbage in my opinion, Janelle Monae gets snubbed for Album of the Year but Teenage Dream gets nominated and they snubbed Soldier of Love in that category too. I’m shocked that Ride isn’t nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, Commander isn’t nominated for Best Dance Recording. There were a lot of great songs and albums over looked this year: The Blueprint 3, The ArchAndroid, Teflon Don, Rated R, Russian Roulette. I’m sorry Chris Brown fans but I just don’t think he deserved those 2 nominations, his album is really bad to me and Deuces was not that epic or monumental of collaboration and I’ve never heard that song with Tank, so I can’t anything about that. My problem with the Grammy voters is that they only vote for who they think shoulg win, not who has the best album or song, so, as you can tell, I am biased against Chris Brown, so I was voting, even with or without hearing his album and let’s say that it was the greatest album of all time, I wouldn’t vote for it, that’s why I feel a lot of artists who Grammys just do because the people voting like them more than other artists

  318. Secret Voice December 2, 2010

    @TeamBreezy………………….Lets send those positive vibes @ Chris because as we can see there are still people “biased” against the man and would take it out on his artistry and I am so thankful there were not enough of those ‘bias’ types on the nominating board.

    Shoutout to all the spirits that believe in “second chances”….Shoutout to “open minded” people and I send a “shoutdown” to those with closed mindz……Team Breeeeeeezy!

  319. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) December 2, 2010

    IN THE OTHER NEWS CHECK OUT BRANDY’S NEW SONG “YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL”……………..http://t.co/tW9fMgj ……………………..DOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  320. Keesha December 2, 2010

    “Remember about a year ago(lets be honest) when Graffiti was flopping and the haters laughed at Chris’s failures?

    But hey remember when The 53rd Grammy nominations came out and it got nominated? Not because of sales but off of material? Hey I do!”

    *DEAD*

    Anyway, I still think that the Grammy’s are overrated. I cannot believe that Alicia wasn’t nominated, for her own material, but I am glad that Janelle Monae and Jazmine Sullivan got nominations for theirs. Monica got nominations too. Some of the people in the pop categories shouldn’t have been nominated though.

    Oh and I am glad that Chris has THREE nominations and that they are all his OWN material. Now keep in mind that one nomination is for a MIXTAPE song, the second one is for a album that tanked, and the last one is for a song on that tanked album that wasn’t even released as a single.

  321. zania December 2, 2010

    @TONES, ACTUALLY YOU ARE WRONG WITH DEUCES. DEUCES MADE HISTORY THIS YEAR. THE SONG WAS THE FIRS R & B SONG TO HIT 1# FOR URBAN STATION AND RHYTHMIC PLAYS. NO OTHER ARTIST DID THAT. PLUS DEUCES WAS ON THE CHARTS FOR 10 WEEKS. TREY SONGZ JUST GOT A NUMBER ONE SONG AND IT ONLY BEEN ON THE CHART FOR TWO WEEKS AND HE ISN’T ON THE CHART FOR 1# URBAN SONG AND RHYTHMIC SONG. JUST BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T LIKE DEUCES DOESN’T MEAN THAT EVERYONE ELSE DIDN’T LIKE IT. DEUCES WENT PLATINUM TWO MONTHS AGO.

    IDK what people are thinking and I love Fantasia but Monica is gonna take both awards the academy looks at sales, and chart positions etc when making decisions and Monica was even invited to the nomination special, where was Fantasia. Sheis def gonna win Best RnB album which is the important one aired on TV…GO TEAMMONICA

    “@ Wire:

    So if Rihanna loses in all categories, what are you gonna do about it?”

    Exactly. And I know that many people are saying that LTWYL is going to win song of the year or record of the year, but I want “Empire State of Mind” to win. I LOVE that song! It’s an anthem.

  324. Mely B December 2, 2010

    Let me go on record to vent about the noms for Eminem. I am not a fan – never have been and am disgusted that a song with the content & connotation of LTWYL is nominated in so many huge categories!

    I know that everyone loves a comeback so he’ll probably clean up this year. An ironic contrast to me as a huge Mariah Carey fan is that when she made her comeback with Emancipation, she truly had THE record and song of the year yet they marginalized her by only awarding her r&b awards when in fact her success was across the board.

    So sick of these awards not being about the work but some type of popularity award.

That song is absolutely stunning and his SOS performance was amazing. The fact that THAT song wasn’t nominated individually is somewhat crazy to me”

    I agree, especially about “Crawl.” I LOVE that song. It’s a very inspirational record. I wish that would have been nominated instead of “Take My Time,” but oh well.

    For the people wondering why Trey’s PPP album wasn’t nominated, didn’t it come out after September 30th, 2010? If so, it will probably be considered for the Grammy’s in 2012.

    SO HAPPY FOR CHRIS BROWN’S NOMINATIONS….I’m proud no matter what the outcome is.

    @Tones

    The Grammys’ selections are based on a voting committee of other musicians and industry insiders, so this is based on peers, not fans or popularity. CB’s peers may feel Graffiti showed alot of musical maturity compared to the rest of his catalogue. The same can go for R. Kelly’s who has literally no radio airplay.

    However, I can understand feeling Trey deserved a Grammy nomination because I would be upset if the shoe was on the other foot. *Kanye shrug*

    Hey “TEAM BREEZY” 🙂

    I just been reading every ones post, very nice and everybody is keeping it sane.

    I’m happy for everyone who was nominated congratulations.

    Like every one else, I was surprise not to see Deuces, but it want surprise me if Chris Brown would win at least one Grammy Award. The only reason why I’m surprise to see Graffiti is because it was black balled. But I own Graffiti and it is a great album and for that I am not surprise it made the nominee cut.

    This only tell me that Chris Brown is know longer black ball from the industry.

    I will do my part by not fighting with the fav of his ex it is fruitless, I’m not here to slay, but to have fun and state facts.

    And it is a fact that Chris Brown was nominated 3 times and that is wonderful.

    I’m so happy for Chris Brown.

  341. zania December 2, 2010

    I AM SO HAPPY FOR CHRIS BROWN. HE IS RUNNING R & B NOW. LET ME BREAK IT DOWN, HE HAS 8 NEW SONGS ON THE RADIO, DEUCES, NO B*******, YEAH 3X, AINT THINKING BOUT YOU, GET BACK UP, ANOTHER PLANET, LONG GONE, MAKE A MOVIE. HE IS ALSO FEATURE ON DIDDY ALBUM,KERI HILSON ALBUM, TI ALBUM AND UPCOMING SONGS CHAMPION WITH CHIPMUNK, GREEN GOBLIN WITH JAE MILLZ AND HE IS DOING A SONG WITH JUSTIN BIEBER AND HE DID A SONG WITH DRAKE, USHER, NICKI MINAJ. HE IS FEATURE IN THE UPCOMING DANCE HIT VIDEO CAT DADDY. HE HAS A MIXTAPE OUT WITH AT LEAST 5 GREAT SONGS. HE MADE HISTORY WITH DEUCES BEING THE FIRST TO MAKE 1# ON URBAN CHARTS AND 1#RHYTHMIC CHART AT THE SAME TIME FOR 10 WEEKS STRAIGHT. HIT MOVIE TAKERS. YOU TELL ME WHO IS RUNNING R &B. HARDEST WORKER IN THE GAME PERIOD.

    Actually she is nominated for four awards. ‘Only GIrl’ is her only solo nomination. ‘LTWYL’ is nominated 3 times. That’s four total. Where do you get 6 or 7??

  345. Justice198 December 2, 2010

    Some of you are complaining but you do realize that the artist send in nominations for what they want to be considered for nominations and then the grammy panel (there are a lot of people on that panel) choose from that list. This is the reason why some of the newer material are nominated. I think some of the categories are dead on this year.

    In response to the person who said how can Lady Gaga win, well remember there was the whole grammys screw up with her last year so this is kinda like redemption.

  346. Blue Kid December 2, 2010

    Usher will take an Grammy

    Chris Brown will take an Grammy

    I really believe “Deuces” will win an Grammy

    I’m not feeling Chris Brown being nominated for Best R&B Contemporary Album over Trey Songz for Passion, Pleasure and Pain or The Element of Freedom by Alicia Keys or Stronger with Each Tear by MJB, Graffiti was garbage in my opinion, Janelle Monae gets snubbed for Album of the Year but Teenage Dream gets nominated and they snubbed Soldier of Love in that category too. I’m shocked that Ride isn’t nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, Commander isn’t nominated for Best Dance Recording. There were a lot of great songs and albums over looked this year: The Blueprint 3, The ArchAndroid, Teflon Don, Rated R, Russian Roulette. I’m sorry Chris Brown fans but I just don’t think he deserved those 2 nominations, his album is really bad to me and Deuces was not that epic or monumental of collaboration and I’ve never heard that song with Tank, so I can’t anything about that. My problem with the Grammy voters is that they only vote for who they think shoulg win, not who has the best album or song, so, as you can tell, I am biased against Chris Brown, so I was voting, even with or without hearing his album and let’s say that it was the greatest album of all time, I wouldn’t vote for it, that’s why I feel a lot of artists who Grammys just do because the people voting like them more than other artists

    —————————————————————————————————-

    Um…you really could have saved your whole rant becuase it was so uneccessary and didn’t make a lick of sense! Trey Songz album came out to late this year and missed the deadline you idiot! None of his material from ‘PPP” can be nominated until next year!

    It doesn’t matter how YOU feel about CB’s nominations, he still got three and NOTHING is gonna change that!! It doesn’t matter if you never heard ‘Take My Time’, it was heard by the people that matter and they gave it a nomnation! Tons of songs that weren’t heard by many and weren’t released aas singles have been nominated for Grammy’s.

    If doesn’t matter if YOU didn’t like ‘Deuces’, it was one of the BEST records this year! It broke records, went platinum, stayed at No.1 for nine weeks on Billboard r&b charts and became the FIRST mixtape single EVER to get nominated for a Grammy! It was a HUGE success! WTF is wrong with you?!?!

    It doesn’t matter how YOU feel about his ‘Graffiti’ album because it was still nominated for a Best r&b contemporary album! ‘Graffiti’ was some of his best work to date that showed growth and versatilty as an artist. Clearly the Grammy comittee felt that it was his best work or they wouldn’t have given it a nomination.

    Clearly the way YOU feel doesn’t count when it comes to the way the nominess are choosen. You can be mad all you want but it doesn’t change a damn thing!

It woule be so nice if he could take it home. There is some serious stiff competition in that category though. ‘Beautiful Girls’, ‘LTWYL’, and ‘Empire State of Mind’ were all huge records! I hope he wins though because all the others are nominated in other categories. and since ‘Deuces’ is only noinated one time, I really hope he takes it! *fingers crossed*

    Chris Brown has been snob so much and was recently snob by the VMA’s! I believes it’s his time to shine.

    Chris brown acknowledgment for his work for Graffiti is well over due, and even if he doesn’t win the acknowledgment of being a nominee is just wonderful, because he hasn’t even been acknowledged as an artist for the past year. I was happy and was in tears when BET brought him back to the forefront.

    And as for as her fans I am not acknowledging them are speaking to them. I must say RiRiLoad, Rihannaforever and True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue they are different and sane, intellegent people, I always like what they have to say, they are fair in their opinions, they are the exception, I don’t mine talking to them as long as we are not in in their fav post, because I want be visiting there.

    Yes, it has been the year of Eminem, no doubt about that and he most diffidently will get some awards come Grammy night, but I don’t thank that will come a surprise to anybody, Eminem has been a favorite to the award shows for years, I don’t remember Eminem not being nominated for something since he has been in the rap game.

    @Blue Kid Yeh Eminem does always gets nominated for adward shows, abit like beyonce. she has 16 gammys and Eminem only has 11… so maybe he’ll get maybe 3 or 4 this year.

  359. HexTina December 2, 2010

    My 3 Cents

    1. Vocals aside, cause I do like her voice…but, I would be embarrassed if I was a Beyonce stan… Nominated for a song you were nominated and done won last year is kinda pathetic…it does not add to her credibility but takes away from it imo. It just goes to show you how money influences votes and the conflict of intrest of her manager being on the grammy board. It also, to me, makes you come off as thirsty and desperate to “break records”…thats just str8 up beasting to me.

    2. Katy Perry…..VOCAL performance….LMFAO. How does Teenage Dream get nominated over You Lost Me for vocal performance? That is just a big f***** joke right there….and anyone who talks about flop this flop that…there was a time when sales dindt mean s*** to the grammys it was about voice, production, cohesiveness etc….guess its the new VMAs or Peoples Choice awards….damn shame.

    3. The only Dance Tracks that deserve to win a grammy is Robyn and La Roux….those songs were AMAZING

  360. annie December 2, 2010

    I had to say this. For the people that felt Trey was robbed sorry to tell you he wasn’t. Graffiti >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Passion, Pleasure & Pain. Let alone “Pass Out” >>>>>>>>>>>>> entire PPP album. Graffiti album as “quality” on it. It’s more than s** songs, rap songs, r&b songs, etc… The album as a whole as better material than Treys. Sorry to tell you that. Chris Brown was judge on biasness during 2009. The “incident” played a big part on how critics reviewed it. If 2/8 didn’t happen trust Trey would be in the who? category. No shade… truth hurts.

  361. MissImpartial December 2, 2010

    Why should Rude Boy being nominated that song is an embarrassment no self respecting girl would sing such a suggestive song. And what kind a quality does it bring to the table if Alicia Sleeping with the broken heart did not get so nothing from Rated R deserves to be.

    By the way there are no super vocals in Chris Brown voice just average.

    Still can not believe that Airplanes did not get any nomination this was much better than Rihanna’s and Eminem’s song which was only bearable because of Rihanna singing the hook.

  362. Blue Kid December 2, 2010

    @ Star

    I’m looking for Eminem to at least get 3 awards

    @ Annie, what you are saying is so true, 2009 Grammy night was Chris Brown night to shine as an entertainer, until 2/8, a day prior to the awardst it was pretty much done for Graffiti and our guy. Regardless if he had 4 hits on Graffiti he got little to no air play, he was black balled and his album was shelved in the back of department store warehouses not even put out for people to buy. Chris Brown was punish not only by the court system but by the merchants and the music industry!

    Our guy kept his head up and kept on singing even for free, I’m happy that the Grammy is even acknowledging Graffiti. Chris Brown has come a long way.

  363. luvlife December 2, 2010

    Graffiti sucked. Plain and Simple. “Can’t Be Friends” and “Made to be Together”>>>>>>>>> Anything on Graffiti. And s** songs should not matter. Ready got nominated last year. And Pleasure P’s album and singles got nominated last year and they were all about s**. Trey got shafted. Hopefully, this will humble him and he puts out spectacular music and they will have to nominate him.
    But I hate when ppl compare them. Trey is an R&M/hip-hop artist. CB is more pop. He’s considered more “urban” now b/c of the incident, and I don’t think he can ever make it fully back to the pop markets. And even if Graffiti got a nod. How the hell did Ryan Leslie’s album get one? The only thing is janky. But As a Trey fan from the beginning, we are used to things like this. We are used to him fighting and being the underdog.

  364. annie December 2, 2010

    Ryan Leslie album sh*ts all over Treys. Do you people even listen to albums that don’t have s** songs, grinding, zero substance, that isn’t part of the fu*kery part of the industry at all? Just because you like BS doesn’t mean the industry does. The Grammy Committee feel those albums had better quality and substance. Material wise it sh*tted all over Treys. Deal With It!

  365. Heaven December 2, 2010

    U p*** poor sports and ur “I don’t think”. U nay Sayers didn’t think he had a career ten hours ago. He would never sell anything; no one would ever want to go see him, blah blah blah.

    Albeit, he had the #1 r&b hip hop cut for ten weeks (still#2) & #1 movie TAKERS (EXECUTIVE PRODUCER/ACTOR) at the same time.

    He took money out of his pockets and MADE HISTORY…THE FIRST MIXTAPE CUT TO BE NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY.There are no excuses worth a damn; all of those albums were submitted and made the deadline… ALL OF THEM.

    Ur fav is ur fav but don’t try to diminish Chris’ accomplishments for whatever reasons. U may not have liked Graffiti, a whole lot of others did! If it were ur fav you would be dancing a jig, calling the Grammy panel geniuses& crowing about how much this means to ur artist & his/her fans but since it isn’t… HIS fans are to think differently…that’s too damn bad for u & urs.

    Congrats to all of the nominees. We can argue over who should have been and who shouldn’t been but at the end of the day….it was the Grammy’s choices. There were 12,000 votes, so all of the comments about paying for nominations and etc are bogus.

    I am especially happy for CB because people was throwing dirt on him and all, and he rose like a phoenix. It’s good to see that young man get love from the industry again. It should be about the music, and his music was good. So he got what he deserves. Let’s put aside all of the “stan wars” and call it for what it is.

    Amen to that I agree 100%

    @Rayshawn

    I am sure Fantasia was invited to the Grammy Nominations as well and she wasn’t there because SHE WAS ON TOUR!!!!She was doing a show in Memphis Tennessee! Monica was there because she had nothing else to do! I love both Monica and Fantasia, but let’s be real, we all know, Fanatasia is the better artist and she deserves the Grammys. Her album was definitely GRAMMY material!! Don’t get me wrong, Monica can sing but Fantasia can sanggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg!! If you are not moved by whatever Fantasia sings something is wrong withcha!

    Why is Robyn nominated for a Dance Album? Kelis sold more than her and has been touring longer with Sold Out shows. I don’t get it? Acapella 8 million views on Youtube, Dancing on My Own 2 million………? They snubbed Kelis. Fleshtone was the nest Dance Album Ive heard in a while, I hope La Roux wins though that b**** is talented.

    Chris Brown has 3 nominations! I’m beyond pleased.

    Do It Breezy and they said you were ‘ova’.

    I guess rumors of your death were greatly exaggerated!

    F*ck the Grammys. They became a joke years ago.

    I can already predict the winners, without even having to tune into see if my predictions are correct because I already know they will be.

    People can’t take the Grammys seriously anymore.

    Preach!

    they snubbed trey and alcia keys to me and im not even bid fans of theirs and seroisly i love katy but she should not get anything with best vocals SHE CANT SING LIve o and hope nicki wins and that drake wins best new aristist cause they snubbed TML for best album

  390. RihannaForever December 3, 2010

    @Keesha
    PPP came out September 14, unfortunately. I thought that PPP deserved WAY more nods than Ready, and 2010 wasn’t even much of a big year for music so it’s not like he had much competition. Hell, he deserved to be nominated for Album of the Year more than Katy!

    @CBoy
    Thanks, LOL! I really wish we had more Ri stans that were….well….not insane, but it’s weird to me because all of the sane Rihanna stans come to this site for a few posts and then disappear.

    About Rihanna, I think sometimes she’s a bit over-the-top, but who isn’t in the industry these days? At least she’s not asking to be “f*****” like Keri Hilson. I agree with you on the wardrobe, though. I loved Rihanna’s looks for her past albums but Loud is a bit odd with all of the floral prints. But it’s new!

  391. RihannaForever December 3, 2010

    @Vee
    I know, right! Thank Me Later was a good album! It deserved some nominations. I just hope Nicki is nominated in 2012 for Pink Friday but she’ll have some difficulty in anything but the Rap categories since 2012 Grammys will be dominated by Susan Boyle, Beyonce, Britney, Gaga, Avril, Kanye, Taylor…

  392. MONICA< MONICA MONICA~~~ December 3, 2010

    MONICA,MONICa, MONICA, MONICA MONICA MONICA MONICA MONICA MONICA MONICA MO NICA MONICA MONICA MONICA MONICA MONICA is definately taking home the Best female Rnb Vocal Performance, she may even take home Best Rnb ALbum while Fantasia may take Best Rnb SOng~~ but MONICA IS DEFINATLEY TAKing home best female rnb vocal performance Monica’s song was the HUGEST SONG out of all the songs in the Best female vocal RNb Performance.. Also her VOCAL PERFORMACE WAS THE BEST Out of all the nominees in the Best Female Rnb Vocal Performance…… COngrats to Fantasia but MONICA is taking home Best female Rnb VOcal Performance and Best Rnb Album because her work was TOTALLY GRAMMY MATERIAL.. HEr Comeback was MUCH HUGER than Fantasia’s LATEST WORK~!!!!
    MONICA SANGSSS NOT SCREAMS!! Im just SAYIN~!!

  393. MONICA< MONICA MONICA~~~ December 3, 2010

    I also think that it was nice to see the GRammys RECOGNIZING Monica after all the years she has been out of the limelight abd they still acknowledged her work.. …. ..

  394. MONICA< MONICA MONICA~~~ December 3, 2010

    I mean I do LIKE Fantasia but Monica gat the Best Female Rnb VOcal PErformance category while Fantasia may get the BEst RNB SONG~

  395. iLoveXtina December 3, 2010

    Wow at Xtina getting snubbed for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance & they give nominations to Halo (Live) & Teenage Dream.

    LOL @ Justin Bieber being nominated for anything Vocal-wise. Ugh

    Eminem is going to win in his categories. Why wasn’t Alicia nominated for Best Contemporary R&B Album? I didn’t even know Ryan Leslie released an album.

  396. #YeahISaidIt December 3, 2010

    Its still kind of weird to me that cb got norms for what his haters considered a flop. Crazy but wait till he wins, the grammy would be the talk of the year but i know the haters will try and down play his success

  397. Truth Will Set You Free December 3, 2010

    @Monica, Monica, Monica, did you reread what you wrote? Girl READING IS FUNMDAMENTAL!!! WOW!! I agree Monica can sing but um Fantasia can run circles around Monica, I know it and you know it!!!Monica is ok but she can never top Fantasia, I’m sorry to burst your bubble! Being compared to the greatests of all time, Patti Labelle and Aretha Franklin is an honor within itself! That would be Fantasia be compared to them not
    Monica! I like Monica don’t get me wrong but she WILL NOT win best R & B SONG OR ALBUM! Bittersweet is far better than LAOM!!!Fantasia’s album is what you call a GRAMMY album! I can’t say the same for Monica’s! I will reiterate, I like Monica, but please her album was good, that’s about it! Monica’s album was not GREAT!!! Congrats to everyone nominated because being nominated is an honor within itself!!

    Graffiti sucked. Plain and Simple. “Can’t Be Friends” and “Made to be Together”>>>>>>>>> Anything on Graffiti. And s** songs should not matter. Ready got nominated last year. And Pleasure P’s album and singles got nominated last year and they were all about s**. Trey got shafted. Hopefully, this will humble him and he puts out spectacular music and they will have to nominate him.
    But I hate when ppl compare them. Trey is an R&M/hip-hop artist. CB is more pop. He’s considered more “urban” now b/c of the incident, and I don’t think he can ever make it fully back to the pop markets. And even if Graffiti got a nod. How the hell did Ryan Leslie’s album get one? The only thing is janky. But As a Trey fan from the beginning, we are used to things like this. We are used to him fighting and being the underdog
    ——————————————————————————-

    When will you simple ass fools realize that Trey’s album came out AFTER the deadline! Damn! It’s not CB’s fault that ‘Graffiti’ got the nomination and Trey didn’t! Why the f*ck are ya’ll mad! Clearly the panel felt like ‘Graffiti’ was Grammy worthy material or eles they wouldn’t have gave him the nod.

    It kills me how people think that just because ‘they’ think something sucks that it shouldn’t be nominated! GTFOH! It doesnt matter what YOU think! It’s not based on sales, critics reviews or how many hit singles it produced! It’s based on quality and ‘Graffiti’ was a GREAT album that got overlooked due to his scandal. Thank God the Grammy panel realized that!

    FYI: CB HAS always been considered an r&b artist! His first album was completely r&b! He did pop on his second album but it was still primarily r&b and he has always been nominated in r&b cateogories. CB has always had more success, awards and accolades than Trey! So yes there is no point in comparing the two because CB will always win!

    It doesn’t matter how anyone feels about Trey’s material over CB’s, CB got the nomination, Trey didn’t!!! Get over it! CB is the comeback kid, Trey can have next year…maybe.

    Also Ryan Leslie had a incredible album too! He deserved his nom as much as CB did! Underdogs are taking over! Lol!

  400. MONICA< MONICA MONICA~~~ December 3, 2010

    @TRUTHWILLSETYOUFREE MOnica is ALWAYS COmpared to Whitney Houston who is also considered the greatest of ALL TIME~~ Monica’s album was TOTALLY Grammy Material and Fantasia CANNOT run circles AGAINST MONICA~~MONica’s ALBUM WAS AMAZING VOCALLY~~ and the music material was oN POINT~!! I respect Your Opinion but I DISAGREE TOTALLY~~ Monica has bee in the game for over 15 years and has just be named number 24 on BILLBOARDS LIST of rnb ARTIST of the PAST 25 years…. Fantasia’s name was NO WHERE TO BE FOUND!!!MONICA IS A SANGER!!!! and I said Monica Will WIN BEST female Rnb vocal performance and best RNB ALBUM ,, I never said that Monica was nominated for BEst RNB SONG~~ Fantasia is not on Monica’s level Monica has recently scored her 8th number in the RNB GAME and URBAN GAME….. Fantasia has just entered the door… Monica has helped to pave FANTASIA’s WAY, Keyshia Cole’s way and Ciara’s way and she deserves Respect~!! Please know ur Music HIstory singers like Beyonce respected singers like Brandy and Monica from Bak IN the DAY~!!! EVerything To me WAS VOcally amazing and it is the most OUTSTANDING out of all the others in the best female rnb category and Monica’s album Still STanding was QUALITY RNB which is Totally GRAMMY QUALITY~~~!!! STill STanding Represented the BEST OF RNB of TODAY. Those are some of so many reasons why her work deserves to win those categories…… like I said Monica SINGS AND NOT SCREAMS~!!!! I respect your opinion but I disagree.. Hopefully you will respect mine… I am a fan of Fantasia but I do think that Monica deserves the Best Female Rnb Vocal Performance and the Best RNB album~~

  401. MONICA< MONICA MONICA~~~ December 3, 2010

    And Actually Monica is nicknamed the YOUNG WHITNEY~~!!

  402. MONICA< MONICA MONICA~~~ December 3, 2010

    TYPO:: that was a list combined of Hip hop artist as well, It was the Top 50 RNB/ HIP HOP ARtist of the past 25 years which she was listed number 24~~~

  403. Truth Will Set You Free December 3, 2010

    @Monica Monica Monica-Monica is that you? LOLOLOL! Well Whitney Houston, don’t get me wrong she can sing. UMMMM BUT SHE IS NO WHERE BETTER THAN PATTI LABELLE AND ARETHA FRANKLIN, THEY BOTH RUN CIRCLES AROUND WHITNEY!!! LOLOLOLOL!

    Girl I am not about to go back and forth with you! Keep dreaming, aint a thing wrong with it!!Fantasia CAN run circles around Monica, there’s no denying that!! Like I said Monica is aight, she’s ok, but she ain’t the best sorry!!!!! See you at the Grammys!!! Good luck to everyone nominated!!!

    DEUCES!!

  404. Camy Joe December 3, 2010

    im so proud of chris! even if he doesnt win, it is a major accomplishment for us. for those who said he would be poor shame on you. You can disapprove of his actions, but you CANNOT DENY HIS TALENT. that is one thing chris brown haters can never say, is that he isnt good at what he does!

  405. MONICA< MONICA MONICA~~~ December 3, 2010

    @Truth Will Set You Free
    Like I said I respect ur opinion lets just agree to disagree.. I aint bout to go bak and forth either… We both have diferrent opinions now lets just leave it at that.. You believe that Fantasia is better than Monica wheras I believe Monica is better than fantasia now lets just leave it at that….. I am MONICA FAN ALLDAY~!!! MONICA MONICA MONICA MONICA MONICA MONICA MONICA ALL DAY~!!! PEACE~

    Whitney Houston’s recordings and performances are just as amazing as Aretha Franklin’s and Patti Labelle. All three of those ladies are Vocal Legends!!

  408. MONICA< MONICA MONICA~~~ December 3, 2010

    I am going 2 say this again I believe Monica is taking Home Best Female Rnb VOcal Performance and Best Rnb ALbum Good Luck to every1 else BUt I am Pulling 4 MONICA~!!

  409. Secret Voice December 3, 2010

    I am so tired of this ongoing fight about Monica and Fantasia.Fools let that shyt go because both are boring as hell.Now don’t get me wrong,both are hella talented in different ways but they are boring as hell nonetheless.Monica don’t know when to shut her damn trap about Shannon or she goes through extremes to mention Rocko which is somewhat irritating because she makes her seem insecure and hella clingy and go through extremes to prove she’s “down”.

    Where do I begin with Fantasia,she’s a hellafied talent but the woman don’t have the brains of gnat.Hopefully she will get it together.I will continue to SUPPORT both musically but when it comes to talking about them,they are boring as hell..

  411. BrealK December 3, 2010

    J Records got the R&B Divas. Congratulations Monica, Jazmine, Alicia and Fantasia.

  412. thistime December 3, 2010

    Pink was not snubbed for Funhouse, that album came out in 2008 and many of her singles were nominated last year…I believe she got a nod or two for something relating to Glitter in the Air….and she is the songwriter of “Whataya Want From Me” and this song is Adam Lambert’s first Grammy nod for Best Pop Male Vocal…so, Pink very relevant this year still.

    @Secret, Monica is like any other woman that has become newly engaged. I probably wouldn’t know when to shut up either if my fiance expressed his love for me and put a ring on it too. I am glad she was nominated along with Chris and several others.

    U p*** poor sports and ur “I don’t think”. U nay Sayers didn’t think he had a career ten hours ago. He would never sell anything; no one would ever want to go see him, blah blah blah.

    Albeit, he had the #1 r&b hip hop cut for ten weeks (still#2) & #1 movie TAKERS (EXECUTIVE PRODUCER/ACTOR) at the same time.

    He took money out of his pockets and MADE HISTORY…THE FIRST MIXTAPE CUT TO BE NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY.There are no excuses worth a damn; all of those albums were submitted and made the deadline… ALL OF THEM.

    Ur fav is ur fav but don’t try to diminish Chris’ accomplishments for whatever reasons. U may not have liked Graffiti, a whole lot of others did! If it were ur fav you would be dancing a jig, calling the Grammy panel geniuses& crowing about how much this means to ur artist & his/her fans but since it isn’t… HIS fans are to think differently…that’s too damn bad for u & urs. If u can’t get over it u can stay mad because he got his & his fans are damn overjoyed! Ha!!

    woo chris got a nomination ! ha take that haterz
    and the “fist brown” jokes are getting old hell even rihanna said to stop taking about the accident
    i don’t think he’ll win though and here’s why
    a) the grammys have always snubbed him
    b) i believe the grammies are racist
    c) the grammies never give to people with talent

    but maybe he could win with Deuces for “best rap/sung colloboration”
    hopefully

  421. TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE December 3, 2010

    @Secret you claim both are boring but you took the time out to talk about their lives? Hunny hush! If you had half the talent that each have then you can talk! But until then STFU!! DEUCES!!!
