    Beyonce didnt have a #1 on billboard 100 so thats why she wasn’t up for anything. next year though.

  2. NickixBeyxGaga May 17, 2015

    Nicki’s performance was great! She really got the crowd ready! #Pinkprint

    • NickixBeyxGaga May 17, 2015

      “The Night is Still Young” and “Hey Mama” will definitely be top 10! Those songs had me dancing along with Taylor!) I know that Nicki’s next album will be more dance/hip hop (can’t wait)

  3. Iconic Iggy May 17, 2015

    Iggy pulled a clean sweep! I’m so proud of her, she has come a long way! Pretty Girls had the most buzz of the night too. Congrats to all winners, especially Iggy. #ItsStillIggySZN

    • BeyRihLiyah May 17, 2015

      she’s still fading iggy is a fad she is over

      • Queen Brit Brit May 17, 2015

        LOLOLOLOL!! You stan for two fads and another who is on her way to fad status. Iggy is still on top, watch as Pretty Girls slays!

      • BeyRihLiyah May 17, 2015

        @britbrit you stan Sh!tney a washed up brain dead has been who not only don’t have custody of her kids but she don’t even have custody of her self she cant even take a sh!t without her dad’s

      • BeyRihLiyah May 17, 2015

        @britbrit you stan for Sh!tney a washed up slow llama looking schizophrenic brain dead has been who not only don’t have custody of her kids but she don’t even have custody of her self she cant even take a sh!t without her dad’s permission

    • Pray for #R8 May 17, 2015

      Do you know what a clean sweep is??? That means that she won in every category she was nominated in… Which didn’t happen. Take another look at the list and open a book.

    • May 18, 2015

      why when she won that award she looked so guilty, she couldn’t even make eye contact with the audience. but your d-mb @ss couldn’t see that something was wrong couldnt you.

    • kp May 18, 2015

      I live for you #iggy I was disappointed with that performance though because of lipping BRITNEY

  4. BeyRihLiyah May 17, 2015

    ummmm bey should have one in both of the r&b categories not pharell how did his album win in top r&b album when bey’s album not only outsold his album but had A way bigger IMPACT his album barley went gold this is some bs

    • edwin May 17, 2015

      Exectly wat I was thinking

    • OMG Logic!!! May 17, 2015

      Impact? B1tch do you know what that means? No one is going to remember that forgettable album in 5 years. There’s a reason people only remember Crazy in Love and Single Ladies. All of her music is beyond forgettable.

      • Slay_Hive May 17, 2015

        Girl bye!!????????????

      • BeyRihLiyah May 17, 2015

        awww logic you seem angry go fucccck yourself that will make you feel better 🙂

    • BitchBettaHaveMyMoney May 17, 2015


    • Royalkev May 18, 2015

      Pharrell beating her out make absolutely no sense at all. That award almost seems like a give away!

  5. Charlieyoncé May 17, 2015

    Not even one to Queen Yoncé though? ????

    • Pray for #R8 May 17, 2015

      yeah I think she should’ve won both but It doesn’t really matter to me at this point. Almost 20 years into her career, Bey has a lot.

  6. Pray for #R8 May 17, 2015

    I never watch the billboards. Always just wait for the winners to be announced. Too much mayo.

    • OMG Logic!!! May 17, 2015

      Black people are 13% of the population. How represented should they be?

      • Pray for #R8 May 17, 2015

        … What does that have to do with what I said? I didn’t say anything about the lack of black people… But I did say something about the abundance of white people.. Not the same thing soooo …whet??

        …And to what you said… black people are responsible for most of the genres of music that exist… so… How represented should black people be in the music industry??? Ummm…

  7. Slay_Hive May 17, 2015

    How the f*** did Ms. Pharell when top R&B artist and Best R&B album over Beyonce?? Wtf?!!.???????? And why wasn’t Beyonce included in the top touring artist category? I’m glad she paid this snoozefest DUST!!????????????????????????

    • fatusankoh May 17, 2015

      Slay Hive thanks well said

    • Mark111 May 17, 2015

      Hahahahahah, #SomeImpact

      • Slay_Hive May 17, 2015

        That’s the same thing I said when I saw American wannabe’s chart position.

    • Slay_Hive May 17, 2015

      *win. Oops

    • OMG Logic!!! May 17, 2015

      Because Thighyonce didn’t tour on her own. She had the camel with her.

      • Slay_Hive May 17, 2015

        The 220 Million dollar grossing, Top five highest grossing tour by a woman, a BLACK WOMAN, The Mrs. Carter Show, says hello!!!

    • Jamon May 17, 2015

      He did win the Grammy for comtempary r&b album over her. Maybe that had something to do with it. I haven’t heard either, I’m assuming.

  8. Pray for #R8 May 17, 2015

    Igloo won best rap artist over j cole.. Welp. Satan takes no days off I guess.

    • ghive May 18, 2015

      It’s top rap artist not best rap artist it means she sell more records than him period

  9. Rihboy May 17, 2015


  10. Alex May 17, 2015

    I’m still confused as to why Bey didnt win anything. You don’t have to have a hot 100 #1 in order to win one( Sam smith stay with me peaked at #2). Also, billboard awards are about sales and charts, so how did Pharell even get nominated?? But it’s cool. She’s still the most awarded live artist. ????????????

    • Jamon May 17, 2015

      Happy spent 10 weeks at #1 and sold 13.9. Million worldwide. You can’t win them all. Beyonce has enough awards in this lifetime. I’m sure she’s happy and happy for the other Artist. Look at it this way, she’s won more Grammys then Mariah, Whitney and Janet combined, however she has not sold nearly as many records as them, that doesn’t mean her music is better either. It was far more competition in the 80’s and 90’s. There was so much timeless music. They all have and had their moments. Not to discredit Beyonce, but she doesn’t have much competition in the R&B department. Do you think she would have won over artist in the 90’s?

      • Alex May 17, 2015

        Well Pharell’s song happy was a success, but Beyonces album outsold ALL of the other albums in the category. Her album had the most impact and was on 7 year end charts on billboard. She dominated R&B charts the entire year. There’s no denying the impact she had with her album. But she has won a lot of awards and to answer for question, she still would have won over artists in the 90s because she’s a total package. Most of the artists like whitney, janet, Mariah, and madonna couldn’t sing and dance like Bey. Beyonce is the that total package since Tina Turner. No shade to the rest of the legends though.

      • Jamon May 18, 2015

        I can’t believe you said Beyonce sang better then Whitney and Mariah, and dance better then Janet. She’s good for this generation, but her music isn’t in the same league as there’s. Mariah Carey has written 17 of her 18 number 1’s and could hit notes no other artist of this generation could dream of. Whitney Houston is and will always be known as the voice. Janet Jackson defined dance, like her brother Michae. Rhythm Nation took it to a whole new level and will always be a classic, she was the first to do it. I guarantee Beyonce will always look up to these women. There are plenty of more out there, aretha, chaka khan, toni braxton, patti, mary j blige, anita baker, etc. it was based solely on creativety and voices and trend setting. Music was meaningful and didn’t sound alike, like todays artist. I grew up in the 80’s and 90’s and would know who the artist was when I heard their voice on the radio. I do think Alicia Keys is the closest of this generation, my opinion. Beyonce would of fell in with Brandy, Monica, Aaliyah and Mya in the 90’s. They all had hits and was selling albums. However their music wasn’t anything that wasn’t heard or done before. I was a big fan of there’s. Another way to look at it is Mariah’s Daydream Album sold 25 million and was the biggest album that yeah, one sweet day off that album still holds th record as longest at #1, but didn’t win a single Grammy. But This Beck artist album didn’t sell nearly as much as Beyonce but it won album of the year recently. Right now artist are more worried about making money then quality music. Music is dead. I only buy older music and songs from respectable Artist. DIL was a nice song to play in the car.

      • Jamon May 18, 2015

        BTW Nicki Minaj is doing good now but her music would have been laughable compared to Foxy, kim, Da brat, Missy, MC Lyte, etc. let’s not get started on Iggy.

      • the right one May 18, 2015

        omg well said. Beyonce may have a lot of music but the quality of it has always been subpart to say the least. so she couldn’t have cut it with the other timeless acts of the 90s let alone the 80s. not bashing but it is what it is.

      • Alex May 18, 2015

        What I said was Beyoncé is a total package whereas the others weren’t. Let’s be real. Whitney and Mariah could sing, but they couldn’t dance. Madonna and Janet could dance, but could not sing. Beyoncé is the total package because she can do both. I’m not discrediting Whitney, janet, or Mariah, but I’m sick of people thinking that Bey is not an unstoppable force. Beyoncé holds the record for most weeks at number one in a single year (17). She’s the first female artist to have her first five solo albums debut at #1. She’s been artist of the decade, millennium, and women of the year in music. She has 2 legends awards from the World Music Awards and the list goes on. I love Brandy and Monica but they peaked in the 90s. Also, Bey was out in the 90s along with TLC, Brandy, Aaliyah, Janet, Mariah, and is still going. Beyoncé has longetivity, impact, sales, and influence. All of which makes a LEGEND. She’s paid her dues. As for as Nicki, she isn’t a legend yet, but she is on her way to being an icon. She is constantly crossing over and appealing to larger audiences outside of hip hop. Her resume is developing quite nicely.

  11. James May 17, 2015

    Happy shouldn’t be in the rnb category. Phar. bye

  12. Iggy on top May 17, 2015

    Nicki walks away empty handed lol while iggy slays. Nicki your time is up! I told you guys already. Its iggy season b******. F*** who disrespects. Nicki just take your lick and kiss iggy feet. Bow down c***

    • OMG Logic!!! May 17, 2015

      Onika’s been over for a long time. Her fans were just delusional and didn’t want to accept that they stanned for a fad.

    • Only (NICKIARA) May 17, 2015

      That’s what piggy will do inthe next 2 years before she joins Skeri for early retirement. The b**** will forever cling to KFCy just like how Lil h** clings to lady marman b****** don’t even have solo top 10s

  13. OMG Logic!!! May 17, 2015

  15. LIL’ KIM IS THE G.O.A.T. May 17, 2015

    • BeyRihLiyah May 17, 2015

      but where was lil kim ugly ass? oh yeah in her roach infested apartment getting more homemade plastic surgery done to her horrific Halloween mask face

      • LIL’ KIM IS THE G.O.A.T. May 18, 2015

        Bish, you need to be worried about HOnika’s stiff cement booty that she can’t move even when she tries her hardest. And you also need to worry that irregardless of the plastic surgery that HOnika does to fix her disgusting big nose, it still looks like a Perokee’s beak.

        Plastic surgery or not, my fave Lil’ Kim is a LEGEND. Your fave HOnika is a swagger jacking hasbeen who won’t be remmebered in 2020. She’s DONE OUTCHEA! How you tryna call yourself the Queen of Rap, but your flop album can’t even sell a million copies after 6 months? What kind of FLOP! Your fave’s tour tickets are selling for $20 on GROUPON bish! Your fave is WASHED bish!

  16. BEY>RIH May 17, 2015

    Lmao at the usual Bey haters in here thinking Queen is worried about a f**** billboard award ????????????. She is the most awarded artist alive and wins awards like grammys. Hopefully r8 will be nominated for billboard 200 album and American Dioxide will be nominated for best hot 100 song next year.????

    • Rihboy May 17, 2015

      You are so worried about r8 and people hating. All the haters in here are iggy, nicki, and Britney fans but like two of us. Clearly we know who your worried about.

  17. Tiffany foxx May 17, 2015

    Damn poor nick didn’t get jack s*** lmao. B**** swear she the s***. Billboard can careless about you h** bag lol them gimmicks are put to rest no more this b*******. Nicki minaj gonna go home tonight and probably look in tha mirror and say ” I’m a total loser” her whole career is copy & paste. The queen lil kim is where it’s at. I’m just waiting on a lil kim feat iggy & missy. Song to hit the charts. Nobody f**** with that lame they call nicki minaj. Wack ass lame

  18. Queen Brit Brit May 17, 2015

  19. ANDREW???????? May 17, 2015

    Lmao Iggy?? Top Rap artist? Or are my eyes deceiving me

  20. Only (NICKIARA) May 17, 2015

    That’s what piggy will do inthe next 2 years before she joins Skeri for early retirement. The b**** will forever cling to KFCy just like Lil h** clings to lady marman b****** don’t even have solo top 10s

  21. Rosie May 17, 2015

    Death at anyone thinking Bey cares about this ugly ass awards show, if a show has a bunch of ugly white boys from Vine as one of the main stars on the red carpet that’s how you know it’s a joke.
    LOL @ Taylor and Iggy winning so many times though. At least they got that right. I bet Social Justice Twitter is FUMING.

    • BitchBettaHaveMyMoney May 17, 2015

      Llama Rey is a flop so I would be quiet if I were you.

      • ANDREW???????? May 18, 2015

        If Lana Is a flop then explain why her endless summer tour is practically SOLD OUT lol haters are quick to talk smack with no valid reciepts

      • Rosie May 18, 2015

        Then so is Rihfund since she can’t even do West Coast #1s without any radio payola (see: Barbadian Monoxide)? Might at well quit music and become a model for good since that’s basically what she’s been since 2012.

  22. robyn May 18, 2015

    Pharell deserved that award and that’s it. We can argue all we like but he is still the winner so congrats. I’m just stunned that iggy won top rap song lolll jeez but on the hand Mariah slayed me with that perfomance, her voice sounds better than it has in such a long time Slay mimi Slay

  23. PiNkY May 18, 2015


    • Nicki still Queen May 18, 2015

      She slayed that f*** up new chin of hers. Iggy didn’t deserve and of those awards. Billboard gave it to her. That’s why they didn’t televised it.

  24. Mark111 May 18, 2015

    Are the hive crying about another award Beyonce didn’t win? First Taylor, then Beck, now Williams?

    • Slay_Hive May 18, 2015

      No one is crying Markeisha. Bey deserved that award over Pharella. Other than Happy, what other song does anyone know from his album? And that mess wasn’t even r&b. Bey has plenty awards so no shade just tea.

  25. RihYonce May 18, 2015

    Beyoncé doesn’t give two shits about this flop show. I still find it crazy she didn’t win anything and she outsold them all , I swear the BEYONCÉ didn’t get all of the awards I deserved but oh well until Round 6 I guess, she has enough awards anyway so I’ll let the lessors have it! I’m tired of these old ass dated songs that came out 2 years ago continue to take all the awards to music that actually came out in 2014 ! Iggy career is over so idk why they keep giving her these nominations in categories she honestly doesn’t deserve

  26. RihYonce May 18, 2015

    I’m just so over all of these flop award shows. Beyoncé should just not even waste her time with these award shows because all they do is use her name for ratings & not give her the awards she deserves, she should just release music and tour f*** these award shows

    • Legend B May 18, 2015

      BEYONCE is 2 years old. BB honored it last year. I think they were gearing towards the best selling recent album.

  27. RihYonce May 18, 2015

    Shout out to Taylor for slaying the night tho ! ????????????????????????????????

  28. Aj May 18, 2015

    What a joke. Neither Hozier’s take me to church nor Coldpay’s ghost stories are rock albums. And once again Taylor Swift wins almost everything for her generic pop-by-numbers. I had more respect for her when she was a country artist.

  29. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! May 18, 2015

    Taylor swift won 8 awards:) she dominated the billboard awards this year:) #Slayer

  30. Legend B May 18, 2015

    Maybe BB wanted to honor the most recent best selling album. Her album came out in 2013. BB honored it last year. I dont think they wanted to stretch the award that long back, to a album that came out in 2013. Queen Bey is the most awarded artist of her generation. I highly doubt she’s worrying about winning for her 2 year old album.

  31. You wanna love it right bettor then my funky money May 18, 2015

    Wow hope some of those artist win their award
