    Bias where’s “pretty girl” nomination for video

  2. ~The Arcade~ December 18, 2015

    OMG @ “The “You Tried It/What Were You Thinking” Award” ???? Rihanna had three nominations lol

    • Pray for the Youth December 18, 2015

      Lmao yesss.. But all three nominations are definately warranted. Anyone whose honest with themselves, stan or not, can acknowledge that rih has made some bad decisions this year concerning her return to music. She tried it when she decided to use Ffs as her comeback single, she tried it with that horrific American oxygen performance in March, and she tried it when she missed her opportunity to release by clearly having no direction for the longest time. The bad part about this entire album roll out, is that all of the messiness could have been avoided if she released mid year. She would’ve done fine. Music is artistry. You can’t TRY to be timeless. You’ll only end up being the opposite.

      that category had me laughing so hard though- Jay z tidal, rihanna roll out. and then he had a Kelly rowland underated artist category and did not have a kelly rowland underated album award as well. The you tried it was really funny though.and then he says rihanna – vocals.

  3. ~The Arcade~ December 18, 2015

    On a serious note, I think Jazmine Sullivan deserves the Kelly Rowland award; she is so under- appreciated its ridiculous… her voice deserves to be heard among the masses not to mention her ‘Reality Show’ album was Ace from start to finish. I didn’t need to skip any songs off that album.

  4. Oscar December 18, 2015

    not at Janet being snuck into all the categories

  5. RICHIE_RICH December 18, 2015

    Bish this is a KiKi !!!!!

  6. LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES December 18, 2015

    Lil’ Kim’s album is dropping in 2016. It is the nost anticipated album by a fenale rapper in history, but this site is Oinknika’s payroll, so Kim wasn’t nominated. Anyway, she’s still THE QUEEN BEE!!!

  7. King Gemini December 18, 2015

    Death at these categories…… Btw I’m usually a spectator on this site but you filthy whores comments against King Aubrey King Nicki and King Bey are absolutely outrageous so be ready for some real dragging and slayage here for you. God bless

  8. LORAX December 18, 2015


    This has to be the most corny blog on the net.

    Take these shįt awards elsewhere… Ain’t nobody care about this besides Rita Ora and Fluer East and desperate ass bottom stans! KIII.

    In other news: Bey looks Gorgeous on her leaked Jan – Ellen cover, Adele could be at 6 million in the us this week and the whole world still can’t wait for anti!!! 😉

      • la femme December 18, 2015

        You forgot to mention the time when slay hive got dragged for filth by EL which ended in him claiming he will not come for Mariah anymore

      • Mariah The Legend December 18, 2015

        hunny who hasnt dragged Slay_hive? even Skyfall, one of the nicest commentaters on tgj, was dragging it at the beginning of the year. LMAOOOOOO kiiiiii

  9. Lady Lumps December 18, 2015

    This is so bias and lame. The hate on Rihanna and inclusion of Tranet? No wonder people dont visit this blog no more. Its so wack. kiii

    • JanetSchooledYaFaves December 18, 2015

      Opp someone is mad, LOLOL. BTW, Rihanna learned everything she knows from Janet. So show some respect. bunglecunt.


    • Bounce December 22, 2015

      Like it or not, Janet had one hell of a year.

  10. Lady Lumps December 18, 2015

    When was the last yall had 100 comments? Even Rihanna threads are flopping. kiiii kiii

  11. lolz December 18, 2015

    I’m surprised David has made a post on the record breaking pink print album which sold 3.3 million WW making it three times plat ???

    • StopLyingggg December 19, 2015

      The pink print ain’t no damn 3x platinum lol it only counts if it’s platinum in the US which it isn’t …Nicki be Lyin her ass off that would be big news look it up there’s no receipts

  12. jamon December 18, 2015

    Your corny, biased awards, means doo doo squat!! Your site is falling apart. I recommend you hire some real journalist, who are neutral and professional. If you’re going to do some end of the year nominations, I suggest you try some real categories and not one’s that shades Artist. Kelly Rowland underrated artist is not real!! Stick to the basics. Just saying.

  13. cocobutta December 18, 2015

    Monica needs to sneak in that underrated category.
    She is respected in the game but after Code Red and hearing Anchor (a pop ballad that won’t see the light of day) she got to be underrated!!

  14. No favs, just here for the music December 18, 2015

    LOL @ the ‘you tried it/what were you thinking’ award. I had to give that one to Meek Mill. Raven is too much of an attention w**** it’s like feeding a troll she gets off on controversy.

    It’s really hard for me to pick between Adele and Bey like seriously.

  15. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans December 18, 2015

    Everyone, let’s work together to make Ciara the “Best Female” award/title receipient. She deserves it, even with all the loads of success the other five women have already accumulated.

  16. brazio December 18, 2015

    Can there ever be something that doesn’t mention Beyonce!!!???this beyonce fan page frustrates me sometimes

  17. Really Doe December 19, 2015

    No shade but why is Beyonce in the Best Female Section, she hasn’t released any new (Solo) music at all this year, I think putting in the running automatically stacks the deck against everyone else. Almost like the Grammys, AMAs, etc. What about Jill Scott or what that girl’s name… Tanashe? Just saying

  20. JOHNVIDAL December 19, 2015

    These nominations are literally pathetic. I found myself unable to vote in some of the categories due to the lack of something at least decent in them.

  21. Mejustme December 19, 2015

    These nominations are a ki

  22. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig December 20, 2015

    Why is Bobbi Kristina’s death and Rihanna’s album being put in the same category? This is beyond RIDICULOUS.

  23. Dylan Birks December 24, 2015

    Here are my predictions of who will win, not necessarily who I WANT to win tho I mixed my favs in a few.

    Best Album: Janet – Unbreakable

    Single Of The Year – No Sleeep

    MJ Video: Missy WTF

    Best Collab: Nicki & Beyonce – Feeling Myself

    Best Female : Janet (this was Janet’s year as far as a comeback for urban music)

    Best Male: Drake

    Best group: Fifth Harmony

    KR Underrated Artist Award: Jazmine Sullivan

    Underrated Album: Jordin Sparks – Right Here, Right Now

    You Tried It: Raven

    Best New Act: Tori Kelly

    Live Performer : Beyonce

    One & Done: Silento ( Natalie LA Rose has so much potential her label needs to get off their ass)

    Shoula been a hit : Tinashe – All hands on deck

    TV Show: Empire

    Reality Show: RHOA

    Shocking : Bobbi Kristina’s death ( so sad)

    Anticipated Comeback: Frank Ocean

    Active Fan base: Bey Hive

    Winning At Life:
    Janet’s Comeback

    *Note* : Why does Beyonce’s Winning at life make her sound full of herself. It’s a bad look.Just saying.

    • Tyler Makiavelli December 24, 2015

      1.) How does Beyonce being in that category make her look full of herself? She didn’t create it. Someone else decided to put her there.
      2.) Frank Ocean for most anticipated comeback…Really?

      • Dylan Birks December 25, 2015

        OK. Let me clarify what I meant. There are other artist in that same category who could have had that been put by their name ( for bein themselves) but the way that her fanbase and blogs put it makes her image seem like a bit of an ego hog.Though that isn’t the image Beyonce puts out there of herself, sometimes that’s how it’s perceived and it was unnecessary because it wasn’t a real event or accomplisment like the other artist. They could have even mentioned how her re-release outsold brand new releases but they didn’t.

        And to answer the second question, yes Frank Ocean. Why? Because Thus far Frank Ocean has yet to COMPLETELY solidify himself to his hype. Some of his music was good, his voice is nice, and his story is very different from all of the other male acts, but he has all but dissapeared from the face of the earth except tumblr. In short,I like his artistry, but he has more to prove and I anticipate it because his situation is a maker or a breaker for his career. Can he prove himself. I hope that answers your question. Merry Christmas BTW.
