    Like I said earlier today , they had to beg Mother Beyonce to be there and to actually perform because the whole show was atrocious to watch !!!

    BRITNEY NEEDS TO STAY HOME.

    Rihanna is on tour actually , right? Was that her dance routine for S&M ??? This girl is only 23 but she ‘s just soooo lazy. Keep opening them legs, gurl, stick to YOUR basics. S&M –> SMH

    The show perfectly portrays what BillBoard really is right now: A circus full of clows, body-doubles and marketing schemings.

    And I heard some people are trying to diss Queen Bey because she didn’t tank the fans. Sorry but, THAT performance is more than ” Thank You, I love You” for me. So, say “You’re welcome, Honey Bey” or stay mad.

    @ririforever
    I absolutely love how rih is improving gradually.thatsvwhat an artist should do,grow from being called a ‘lessor’ and with time improve and that’s the case with her,in that way we get to witness her evolution and she doesn’t get played out quickly. I see her being among the best forces of the music industry in the future.

    Is this it? Barely anything for a three hour show. And justin beiber is not a new artist. A nw artist doesnt have 2+ albums out.

  12. Angelyc_Aries May 23, 2011

    There have to be more then 8 awards,..right? AND SAM OR GRAPEJUICE STAFF, WORK ON THE MOBILE VERSION OF YOUR WEBSITE! YOU NEED TO BECAUSE YOU DO NOT HAVE ONE, AND IT SUCKS!

    lmfao.. i actually thought Nicki would take a trophy home.. seeing how people overhype her and ride her d***. i thought she would win. and just like the grammy. SHE WENT HOME EMPTY HANDED #DEAD i told y’all shes nothing but a gimmick… her attacks to lil kim are backfiring .
    Karma 1 ” when i see your name on BILLBOARD thats when ill respond to you” < nicki didnt take home a billboard plus her performance was HORRIBLE.
    Karma 2 "Keyshia Cole coming for Lil Kim, what did that get her. NO B.E.T NOMINATIONS. even tho she was eligible, with that " I AINT THRU" video in which NICKI MINAJ dissed Lil Kim. lmfao the tables are turning. and look out for a new LIL KIM single.. mwah! bye h***

    FEMALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR: RIHANNA

  16. ITSVERYPERRY May 23, 2011

    WELL DONE KATY!!!!!!!

  17. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN May 23, 2011

    Taylor swift winsssssss= win for the show

  18. mobwife May 23, 2011

    How in the hell did R****** win RADIO ARTIST OF THE YEAR over both Lady Gaga and Naked Perry?

    Beyonce’s pet camel spent alot of money to get his *cough* artist that award! As if RAGGEDY coud honestly compete with the popularity of Lady Gaga and Naked Perry! “Aint” that much sympathy in the world! Hummm…. but CASH goes along way huh??? O__0

  19. mobwife May 23, 2011

    Ewwww…..Taylor “THANK GOD FOR KANYE WEST” Swift is just garbage and everyone knows it! I don’t care how many units she’s moved! She still could never compete with true country heavyweights like Shania and Faith Hill!

    Damn, even country music is a JOKE!!

  20. NUNYA May 23, 2011

    Some of y6ou all are bitching and complaing about certain awrds but ALL OF THE BILLBOARDS given out are based upon record sales. So thank the consumers for purchasing B******* MUSIC. I still dont get the hyp over beyonce performance either. I now do believe it was a body double because the moves that was done in the video was not conveyed the same way on stage live. And come to find out she copied another artist as usual, LOL

    In all honesty what have nicki minaj accomplished that no other female hip hop/rap artist never accomplished before?

    The enetire show was HORRENDOUS, NO ONE STOOD OUT

  21. NUNYA May 23, 2011

    I meant to say entire.
    And FYI taylor swift sell records, you all need to do research before you all make comments, I guarantee taylor sold more records than your favorite singer, LOL

  22. wAlLpApErs May 24, 2011

    The Billboards were awesome this year! And what’s more, everyone’s speech was safe from the likes (or dislikes) of Kanye West!
