  12. Suicide Blonde March 27, 2014

    I’m surprised Sam hasn’t posted the pics of Justin looking out shape in Barbados, knowing how much he hates JT, in before the scandal, i was in love with a fat Marlon Brando SO….I don’t know why married men let themselves go, he still looks good tho, people are overreacting because is Mr. S*** Back, nothing that a 2 months in the gym can’t fix it, he will bring those 6 pack back.

    Play: Rehab.

  13. FutureCIARA March 27, 2014

    Congrats to Lorde & Imagine Dragons!!!

  14. Touché March 27, 2014

    Wait, this award show is relevant?

  15. Mizuki March 27, 2014

    It is a new award show so I’m sure it’ll bring in the ratings and congrats to Rih who stays winning! Not here for Jt and his put-me-to-sleep music.

    • Touché March 27, 2014

      Oh I see. It seems like it will eventually be on the same level as the MTV music awards shows. Death at JT’s music! I don’t know what he was thinking when he released his current album. Honestly, none of the songs stood out or was worth buying on that album.

  16. HOTSTUFF March 27, 2014


  17. LTM March 27, 2014

    Lol how are Maroon 5 nominated? Did they release anything last year? Congrats to Rihanna though.

  18. Navy Nick March 27, 2014

    CHILE said it best- what is this mess?? BYE FELECIA!

  19. Navy Commander March 27, 2014

    Yess at rih snatching 4 nominations shes bound to win something

  20. JOHNVIDAL March 27, 2014

    Who is responsible for these nominations? I´m just asking since these awards are new. What are they based on? Who decided this? Why should we care? Is it the public or a big amount of industry proffesional like in the grammys? A mess.

  21. Himeros March 27, 2014

    Half the songs nominated have expired. The only songs that should be brought forward for new awards seasons are the monster and timber.

    How is MIRRORS there. Wasn’t that at the 2013 vma’s?

    The only relevant music awards shows are the grammy’s, vma’s, billboard and ama’s.

    Shame, the nickelodeon kids choice awards doesn’t count kunty

  22. Rihboy March 27, 2014

    Lls album from 2012 tho! While bey and ci can even chart lls! Driver really roll up that partition lls! By the way where is that song on the charts!

    • ***flawless March 27, 2014
