    • ?Yellow Diamonds? September 27, 2016

      Right!! I gagged ? wtf?

  4. Paulo September 27, 2016

    huh? video for Starboy’s out already?

  5. Dem Lessers September 27, 2016

    Lol at the HIVe boasting about this!? This is why the viewing figures are tumbling down every year, it’s just the same old boring unimaginative nominee list for every category. Is anyone here for this beside 12-16 years old now?! Not even saying this to shade anyone, MTV’s just dead.

    • The Thot You’ll Never Be September 27, 2016

      Pressed lesser biitch, where did the hive boast?

      • Dem Lessers September 27, 2016

        Look at the second comment, all over twitter and other blogs. Watch the following comments too?

    • Paulo September 27, 2016

      someone should add this post in the dictionary as the definition for “pressed”.

      • Dem Lessers September 27, 2016

        Pest, I’m just waiting for Donald to become president and send your loose hating ãss back to Mehico.

      • Paulo September 27, 2016

        of course you’d support Trump. ignorant hating ass birds of a feather flock to Flopsville together. stay mad xoxo

    • King B September 27, 2016

      Y’all boast about those stiff dance and lip syncs performances always. Just like some of the Stans that like to act like Blackout is the best album of all time when it got overlooked by the Grammy Committee and most importantly gt outsold by album that is released in 2016, at $17.99.

  6. The Thot You’ll Never Be September 27, 2016

    She’ll sweep these then the AMA’s then the Grammy’s
    And hopefully the Oscar’s cause she’s that biitch, and mostly because that future Grammy award winning album deserves it

    • LOL September 27, 2016


      • surprise..dec.2013 September 27, 2016

        Was FADGA too poor to buy streaming numbers for PERFECT MENSTRATION to prevent it from tumbling down to no 42 with a nee video on its second week??????????

  7. IG:code_rex2.0 September 27, 2016

    Word is Rih’s WFL is now diamond certified. Grats to that bih.

  8. The kpop guy, Matt ~ September 27, 2016

    Yaaas, this time last year, my brothers Group won for Best Korean Act! 방탄소년단(BTS)!!!

    • ?Yellow Diamonds? September 27, 2016

      No one is here for k-poop girl! Let it go..

  9. Ty September 27, 2016

    What kind of categories are these lol biggest fans ?? ? Best look ?

  10. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? September 27, 2016

    That Britney Stan sounds jealous. I guess somebody is still upset that their fave got upstaged by the much better entertainer at the VMAs. Anyway congrats to Beyoncé for still killing it 20 years later.

    • The kpop guy, Matt ~ September 27, 2016

      But where was seizy?

      • Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? September 27, 2016

        Girl, your jokes are played out just like GaGa. Perfect delusion is free falling sis hurry up and go catch it.

  11. Cory Wynne September 27, 2016

    Wow R&B really doesn’t exist anymore. All R&B categories have been removed.

    • FC/JC September 27, 2016

      I noticed the same thing

  12. BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 September 27, 2016

    Congrats Bey! Had an amazing time last in the ATL @ The Formation Tour. This concert made up for North Carolina getting rained out, thank god The GA Dome had a closed roof lol!

  13. Sam September 27, 2016

    Why wasn’t Ariana Grande nominated for Best Female and Lady Gaga has? Gaga only just released a new song yet Ariana has had an album and 3 song’s out?

    • Paulo September 27, 2016

      and that’s why ShitneyBot is pressed as hell. her fav has been lipsynching and prancing on every show on Earth yet GaGa with a flop song still gets more attention and props kiiii

  14. Paulo September 27, 2016

    that’s why BritBot is pressed as hell. her fav has been lipsynching and prancing around on every show on Earth yet GaGa with a flop song still gets more attention and props kiiii

  15. Metzo September 27, 2016

    She’ll sweep 2 . Best Live and Best Video.

  16. Adam September 27, 2016

    She is also nominated for a Mtv Japan award

  17. fatusankoh September 27, 2016

    You go queen bey good luck with all

  18. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 27, 2016

    Y’all wrote an article and hyped up of this sh*t? These are like Vh1’s MTV 2 awards like these things don’t even count. Like these awards are literally made up of tin foil and should only matter to Lukas Graham and Iggy Azelea

    • King B September 27, 2016

      Of course! As long as Beyoncé dominated, it is not important. Just like streaming was not important during ST’s era (DriL and 7/11 outpeaked 45s, BBHMM and AO) but the Navy’s mind set suddenly changed to STREAMING IS THE FUTURE.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 27, 2016

        Tell me why is Hold Up flopping? Where is it on the charts? Matter of fact, why have ALL the Lemonpledge singles have flopped? How come NONE of them are doing well on radio even though it had the radio justic league producing it? How come Sway?

    • RihYonce September 27, 2016

      Winning best female video over work is a flop ? Or bey having the best first week selling single this year while your fav is counting on streams ? We both know that if any of beys singles were on all streaming platforms it would’ve been lights out for Rihanna this year because Formation , Sorry & Hold Up would’ve been bigger than work , kiss it better & needed me.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy September 27, 2016

        Bih Rihanna has had 3 songs this year top the top 10 for 16+ weeks meanwhile yo fave can’t even get ONE song in the top ten for even 1 week. Broad can’t even get a request from a random listener.

    • King B September 27, 2016

      Didn’t y’all say STREAMING is the future? These songs are not on Spotify. Now explain why Auntie got outsold by Lem in UK (even when streams included) and Australia, I thought she’s the GLOBAL SUPERSTAR? And why is the Black Madonna album sales consist mostly streams when Auntie is the most anticipated album of 2016, and there is almost no hype for B6 (lemonade) according to some of you.

  19. King B September 27, 2016

    Remind me of IASF era where she dominated awards show. And yasss at BEYONCÉ spent its 141st week and IASF 128th week on BB200! Queen of Longetivity!

  20. King B September 27, 2016

    The hyprocrisy is real. Y’all overrate and hype lip syncer, goat sounding singer, clown, whisperer, local act, Samsung-dpendant artist, streaming-dependant artist,Disney non singing ass, but refuse to acknowledge the BEST PERFORMER ALIVE’s achievement?

  21. Theman September 27, 2016

    Album of the yr. is not hers. Her imagery was good. But the rest is overrated.

    • RihYonce September 27, 2016

      We’ll see in February ?? & either way she will have more Grammys than your fav EVER will

  22. james September 27, 2016

    Mtv u suck . Where is aint your mama ? This song was a smash hit in europe . Queen jlo will remain queen . F u mtv

  23. No favs, just here for the music September 27, 2016

    No surprise with Beyonce she pretty much dominates everything. JB can just disappear off the face of the planet tbh

  24. HailLegendBeysus September 27, 2016

    SCREAMING I see the Séxbót stans are having a meltdown and Whóréanna stans are mad that once again she’s paid dust with a measly 3 noms LMFAOOO!!!! But I thought Yonce was irrelevant!!! Not her being nominated for EMAs Japan VMAs and MOBO awards LMFAOOOOO!!!! This bitxh is coming to snatch Whitney’s crown as the post awarded Female artists EVER!!!!

  25. HailLegendBeysus September 27, 2016

    First BETs were irrelevant when Bey scalped with a live performance and cleaned house!
    Than Emmys were irrelevant because they didn’t focus on music.
    Than VMA’s were irrelevant.
    Now the EMAs are irrelevant because Yonce once again leads the pack and will walk away with multiple trophies.
    Next AMAs, and Grammys will be irrelevant to the lessers because their favs will be paid dust hahahaha!!!

  26. Theman September 27, 2016

    Beyonce gets stuff because her fans are bullies. If you look at celebs/audiences faces when Rihanna/Beyonce are at a show, the crowd genuinely love Rihanna. A lot of people just ride the Beyonce train because of her ignorant fans. About, her having more Grammys than someone else’s favorite artist, she didn’t sale more albums/records. And she doesn’t really write hers either. So sit down somewhere..

    • BEY>RIH September 27, 2016

      Beyoncè is genuinely more loved by the gp than Frihanna. The proof is in the album sales, tour success, media praise, acclaim and awards. And the only female artists that currently sell more albums than her are T. Swift and Adele.

    • Briano September 28, 2016

      Its true the media loves beydummy the people love Rihanna

  27. FC/JC September 27, 2016

    Lets just be proud of the few black artists there are nominated outside of the “Hip-Hop” category…

  28. BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 September 27, 2016

    I see the girls are mad as usual. Bey stay getting nominated and winning these “IRRELVANT” awards meanwhile your favs don’t win anything lol!

  29. Theman September 27, 2016

    The gp does not love her more. The press is just up her a** because they don’t wanna go against the grain..

    • HailLegendBeysus September 27, 2016

      That makes no sense what so ever. If the GP didn’t have Yonce’s back the press would throw her ass to the wolves. Why cater to such a small group if most of the GP hate her?

    Negative comments make people look like angry annoying bitter bugs. Looking for attention in all the wrong places. Now you look sad and abandoned by love.
    Hopefully these words are not true 😉
    Hopefully it isn’t you 😉
    Good day 😉

    Peace & Love
