    When the fuuckk will Beyonce promote!!?

    • Grape June 19, 2014

      6 months and only two performances…. I’m pissed. She better perform at the BET awards or I’m done.

  2. Iggy Is on top June 19, 2014

    What about iggy BET? She is number 1 for the third straight week on billboards. Iggy deserves a spot on there to. Don’t be disrespectful BET. Iggy is bringing new light to female hiphop. Nicki ain’t been really doing s***, but releasing low budget videos. Iggy been on her grind.

    • ALL MY BAD B!TCHES DO IT June 19, 2014

      You’re right. Nicki has flopped this year, very hard just like her nemesis, Mariah Carey.

      Just like Nikki’s fans, BET will just try to gloat and think AzzPillsNLotions is the best thing since slice bread. When it’s actually slipping out of the Billboard charts right about now…

      • Iggy is on top June 19, 2014

        Most likely nicki will probably pay BET to give her the award this year. If nicki don’t win, watch teamminaj try and f*** with iggy that very night. They gonna be in her mentions running they dirty filthy mouths. Iggy is gonna put every single last one of them b****** in check. Teamminaj been starting s*** with iggy when she first came out with “murder business” they are so stupid. They know nicki is fading away into irrelevancy and it’s nothing they can do about it.

      • TABLEUX June 19, 2014

        I don’t call going up 19 places to sit at #24 on the Hot 100 is ‘slipping’

        Stupid b****.

      • Andre June 20, 2014

        I’m sorry but how the f*** is jumping up to 24 “slipping” and not all of team minaj hates Iggy. But face it she just got lucky with fancy, the song is only big because of the chorus. I like some of her music, but none of the singles will get as big as fancy. Remember Fancy is her fourth single. The other 3 flopped. And he album isn’t selling very well either.

    • Rihyeezy June 19, 2014

      The struggle of being a Iggy Stan kii
      Maybe she’ll be able to get a spot in the cypher

  3. Stephanie Tha Bitxh! June 19, 2014

    Ugh, No offence but all those “performers” are whack!

    • Sarah June 19, 2014

      Actually i think JLO rivals Beyonce..performance wise

    • Adele the Queen June 19, 2014

      If Beyonce is the GREATEST PERFORMER ALIVE, what does that make P!nk cause she Sh*ts on Beyonce effortlessly no offense to Beyonce and Beehive

  4. Yea ok June 19, 2014

    If these are all the performers I surely will not be watching. Snooze fest. I like John and Jennifer but I would never go to a concert.

  5. ALL MY BAD B!TCHES DO IT June 19, 2014

    What? Nikki doesn’t deserve to perform there. She just should present the BET Best Female Hip Hop Award to Iggy Azalea, the new queen of hip hop who is now running thangs.

    If Iggy doesn’t win Best Female Hip Hip than you know this shows award ain’t no real one. They’ll only give Nikki the award because to continue her reign and also because Stephen Hill loves Nikki and will do anything for her, and of course Nikki sucks his gay d*ck at night time. SMH! Iggy deserves the award for creating a legacy behind her that is bigger than a Nikki Minaj. Nikki has never accomplished a big feat like #1 Billboard hot 100 (For four weeks consecutively) and to have a number 1 & 2 at the same time.

    Iggy is the first female since Missy Elliott to break down barriers for Female rap.

    Azealia Banks “Wallace” premiere’s on July 1st. Prepare to be shaken by greatness.

    • Minaj21 June 19, 2014

      First of all no body gives a f*** about banks. Second of all Nicki paved the way for iggy. Third of all the only record iggy broke is having a #1 single. What other record did she break?

      • ALL MY BAD B!TCHES DO IT June 19, 2014

        OMG….. smh. When a Nicki Minaj fan can’t read…. psh.

        Nicki reopened up the doors but Iggy broke down the motherfcking door with IMPACT!

        Like I said, 2 top 2 singles currently on billboard and four consecutive weeks at #1. That is MAJOR for Female rap. Nikki couldn’t do it.

        That’s why she needs the award. Chuh, you a waste of time.

      • Skyfall June 19, 2014

        Neither of those songs are in the top 2 because of iggy

    • Andre June 20, 2014

      Are you serious right now? Iggy’s song only became big because of the chorus. And if you want to talk about flopping Nicki Minaj’s single is currently selling more than Iggy’a entire album. The New Classic sold 52,000 copies in its first week. Pink Friday sold 375,000 copies in its first week. Iggy has done nothing influential in the hip hop business she is a breakout artist and she will eventually fall off. Sooner rather than later. Not many people think she’s here to stay.

  6. K June 19, 2014

    YMCMB,i am definitely tuning in.

  7. Jdek June 19, 2014

    Actually doesn’t sound lame and mediocre this year. Might watch

  8. Dave June 19, 2014

    This show is gonna be boring. No BEYONCÉ or Rihanna. WHAT! Who the f*** is checking for john legend? Who checking on jhene Aiko though?

    And nobody damn well ain’t checking for nicki minaj. She been irrelevant far as music goes. Pills & potions is kinda flopping, not really a good song at all. The video was boring and wack. Iggy is the one nowadays! All eyes on iggy she is where it’s at. Nicki is a thing in the past.

    • Jdek June 19, 2014

      That’s because the BET awards has turned inti a joke. Hence to why rihanna destroy show up anymore.

      • Jdek June 19, 2014

        *doesn’t. I hate autocorrect

  9. ALL MY BAD B!TCHES DO IT June 19, 2014

    Let’s just watch and see if Rihanna doesn’t attend this BET award show again. SMH! I think that’s disrespectful, BET has done a lot for her and she never had attended the show since 2007. She is wack, she can attend all the white award shows but not Black Entertainment Television Awards? SMDH!

    • RiRi June 19, 2014

      she makes music for white people tho…

  10. TRUTH COMMISSION June 19, 2014

    I hope iggy azalea gets best female hiphop artist this year. I think she deserves it. She work hard to get where she is at. Nicki already won I think like 3 of them already. Give somebody fresh the award. Plus iggy been putting s*** down far as videos & music lately. I can’t say the same for nicki minaj, that pills and potions videos was confusing as hell. The game?… Why the hell was he there again? The world may never know… Nicki minaj looks lost now that iggy azalea came along. She looks scared almost to me. She been kinda laying low ever since iggy step on the scene. Nicki don’t want the problems. So I think she is trying to hide. She know iggy is a major problem knowing that she is number 1 on billboards for the 4week in a row. I can see it in nicki minaj eyes she don’t want beef or any problems.

    • Molly June 19, 2014

      I agree Iggy definitely deserves it.

    • Minaj21 June 19, 2014

      Actually nicki won BET award 4 times in a raw. And should should Nicki be scared when her single PnP climbed from 43 to 24 this week on hot 100? And why do u want to think that she is hiding?

  11. Molly June 19, 2014

    The only highlight will be Nicki and maybe Jhene aiko ugh Beyonce & Rihanna needa come out of hiding. Ciara just had a baby so i don’t see her performing anywhere anytime soon.

  12. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 19, 2014


  13. Minaj21 June 19, 2014

    Thank God nicki will perform there. I thought she was not gonna perform. And why are the piggy fans mad?

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 19, 2014

      Which award show did she perform Freedom on? I really liked that performance, and ignore the Iggy flop Stans lol

    • Molly June 19, 2014

      No ones mad _/

  14. #TeamTinashe (BUY “2On”) June 19, 2014

    Why does BET always give Jennifer Hudson a spot on the shows? She performs every year with the public not even knowing what she has new to promote.

    I was thinking they should of had Chris Brown to make a return and perform.

    I think Tinashe and Mila will be doing the preshow! So that’s great!!!! “I Love To Get 2On”

  15. Molly June 19, 2014

    I hope Tinashe performs i need an high energy performance.

    • #TeamTinashe (BUY “2On”) June 19, 2014

      “I Love to get 2 On”

      Tinashe is QUEEN!

  16. Skyfall June 19, 2014

    What had iggy done but get a #1 thanks to the poppy chorus provided by Charlie xcx. I’m sorry iggy will remain beneath Nicki until she can get a top ten or another #1 on her OWN. Where’s her album still trying to scrap 200k she’s a flop b****. Y’all was quick to call pills n potions a flop yet it just jumped from #43 to #24 this week. When Fancy runs out of steam then what cause it’s not really helping her album sales so just imagine her sales without a hit.

  20. Brian310 June 19, 2014
