    Brandy has never kept it real. Lol. So funny that, that’s what y’all chose to start off with!

    • DoveLove May 3, 2018

      She is psycho and lies about any and everything! She is a b**** and has no friends and hasn’t been certified in almost 15 years. It’s safe to say she’s a flop and nobody is checking for her. Monica is the real queen and legend.

      • Ejai May 3, 2018

        Negative! Bless your heart!

      • SNF May 3, 2018

        “Monica is the real legend” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • Afrodisiac829 May 4, 2018

        Monica who😂😂😂😂

      • Let it be known May 5, 2018

        Monica who shits on your ugly ass, bitter, lonely, man-less, friendless, dropped by 5 labels, left in the 90’s fav Brandy. That’s who. Man Brandy’s fans are just as delusional as she is 😂, with her fat ugly ass 😭😂

      • SLY May 5, 2018

        Monica, the R&B legend that sits 23 spots on top of your ugly fav on billboards top 50 r&b artist .

    • king z May 3, 2018

      i literally choked at “monica is the real legend.” mo is a legendary flop.

      • Jasmine May 3, 2018

        Queen z Monica is more relevant and more recent hits than Brand-ashy.

      • Tee T May 3, 2018

        I like both ladies. That being said, not according to (Billboards top R&B artist of the last 25 yrs). Which has Monica at #22, and Brandy at #45. Monica’s music career, chart success, also having a #1 album (Brandy does not) and catalog is much better. Which is why she’s placed where she’s at.
        But nice try though

      • Chrissy May 3, 2018

        The only flop I see here is Brandy. I mean old girl has been DROPPED by 5 labels. if that doesn’t say flop, I don’t know what does LOL.

    • Jasmine May 3, 2018

      TGJ can we get interview trascripts. Who has time to watch a 25+ minute video when the posters can just type up the interview transcripts? I can’t say anything about the video because I don’t have time to watch it but judging by the pic Brandy looks a mess. Nappy headed, pregnant looking, no make-up…I can’t belive she allowed herself to get photographed like they let alone interviewed. I’m dissapointed. She is a legendary singer that should be touring or doing Vegas right now.

      • King Z May 5, 2018

        if u that damn lazy or dont have time, then just dont watch the video.

        damn if the timestamps aren’t enough sis, just wait until u have time to watch the vid yourself

  2. Facts May 3, 2018

    She looks like Sha-nay-nay from Martin, with a touch of Predator 😣 not cute at all. And that Vocal bible thing LMAO gets me every time. She’s more like the vocal pamphlet. I can’t lol.

  3. Fancy BISH May 3, 2018

    First of all, Brandy started out thicker than the other pop girls! Moesha had booty lol…she looks so young here! She’s funny and charismatic in this interview! This is the Brandy I love! 🤳🏽

    • DoveLove May 3, 2018

      She is a psycho with a eating disorder. She looks like a double stuffed alien and she can’t sing better than Monica….

  4. DoveLove May 3, 2018

    Monica is the TRUE vocal bible and everyone knows it….

    • 4EverStar May 3, 2018

      monica is not even a vocal brochure.

      • King Z May 3, 2018

        if monica is the vocal bible that’s all the more reason to be atheist

      • Fancy BISH May 3, 2018

        lmao 🤣 🤣 🤣

      • gina May 4, 2018

        and brandy’s not even a vocal post-it note.

  5. Ejai May 3, 2018

    Great interview! Slay vocal Bible!!!!

  6. Pu$$iePopstress May 3, 2018

    so i’m guessing i’m the only one who couldn’t keep my eyes off that fat roll on her neck?

    sis get a grip! and i don’t mean on the fried chicken leg.

  7. king z May 3, 2018

    ffffuck what all yall got to say! B-rocka you look gorgeous with the weight and your voice sounds as amazing as ever. i was getting my life from the clips in this interview alone

    come back and slay us! we are waiting.

    p.s. – any fool who says monica sounds better than brandy is delusional, deaf, or a dear friend of monica’s who is feeding her lies.

  8. Jasmine (The Original Princess) May 3, 2018

    She got fat because of KARMA and that’s the true tea

    • NO SHADE May 3, 2018

      Facts! Karma is working on her ass.

  9. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ May 3, 2018

    Brandy is one of the best.. the mic is her weapon, foreal

  10. NO SHADE May 3, 2018

    😂😂 @ that vocal bible nonsense. She sounds like she’s dying of smoke inhalation when she sings. Just terrible. Only her delusional fans think of her as such.

    Side note. She looks like a bag potatoes.

  11. RoyalKev May 4, 2018

    Brandy is such a clown! I’m glad she’s enjoying her foodcation! Don’t keep giving her the salmon, broccoli, asparagus… She needs something to eat!!! Eat your cake B! LOL … Bran has a big heart and I really wish she wasn’t so misunderstood at times! I do like that she’s speaking her occasionally, but I’m glad she’s not feeding into every little drama anymore! It’s not worth giving small matters the time of day! Anyway, I can’t wait to hear new music Brocka! Come thru with it Bran!

  12. Afrodisiac829 May 4, 2018

    Brandy last album Two Eleven was a Billboard R&B #1 album and produced the top 3 hit “Put It Down” which was also #1 on urban. While Monica last album Code Red debut at 27!! Lmaooo she’s the flop selling 50,000 copies in total. Brandy is the VOCAL BIBLE. She’s sold millions of more records than Flopica. She’s a TV star, Music Star, Broad way star & Movie star with dolls and all. Monica is that ghetto chick from
    ATL that the hood rats support every now and then. Brandy is Legendary! Deal with it!

    • Bar May 4, 2018

      No shade, but didn’t 211 come out the same time as Monica’s album New life, which sold more than 211. Also, Monica is the last of the two to have a certified album. Monica btw is placed on Billboards top 50 RnB artist at 22, while Brandy came in at 45. And yes Code Red didn’t sell well, but every artist who released an RnB album that came out after that, did around the same numbers. And judging by Brandys last 4 failed albums, she isn’t going to do that much better either. I mean, facts are facts.

      • Afrodisiac829 May 4, 2018

        Brandy has sold MILLONS more records than Monica and is listed as one of the best selling female artist of all time. Can’t change history..

      • gina May 4, 2018

        Lies. Monica was named one of the best selling r&b artists of the last 25 years, not the vocal post-it note. Stop LYING about history….

      • Cali May 4, 2018

        LOL I love how you ignore the FACTS placed right in your face, and still go on with your tired rebuttal.

        Billboard > your opinion. Now go and sit clown lol.

  13. Danny May 4, 2018

    She looks terrible. Karma is definitely catching her bitter shady ass.

  14. Cora May 4, 2018

    Ya’ll kill me. Monica may have had a gold album here &there in the last 10 years, but she was the chick taking 2 -3 years to go double platinum in the 90s. Most high profile Rnb acts sold 3x inside the same year they’ve dropped. Monica never been that girl. Let’s stop acting like she was on Brandy, Sade, Badu or Mary’s level back then.

    • Cali May 4, 2018

      Billboard says otherwise sweetheart. Which is why Monica is the only artist to have a #1 in three decades 90’s, 2000’s, and 2010’s, along with other records set. And like the person above said, if she didn’t make an impact, she wouldn’t have placed higher on billboards top r&b artist list above your fav.

      • Cali May 4, 2018

        And let’s not forget her second album had three straight #1 hits..and she went on to have others as well. Brandy sold more albums, yes, but Monica has an overall better music resume. So Monica is that girl. You tried it.

      • Afrodisiac829 May 4, 2018

        Brandy has sold MILLONS more than Monica. If her catalog was better she would’ve been the better seller. Period! Deal with it..

      • gina May 4, 2018

        brandy hasn’t seen a Gold certified album since the 90s. Monica had a Gold certified album this decade, along with a #1 hit. You tried it, now you will deal with it….

      • Cali May 4, 2018

        LOL I love how you ignore the FACTS placed right in your face, and still go on your tired rebuttal.

        Billboard > your opinion. Now go and sit clown lol.

    • gina May 4, 2018

      Lies. Monica’s first album went platinum in a month, her second album went double platinum in 2 months. stop lying on Monica just to boost the vocal sticker’s weak album sales.

  15. Cora May 4, 2018

    I’m not saying that Monica don’t have hit singles, but her album sales weren’t ever strong. Artists in the 90s had hits &especially sales. The latter was even more important. It’s great that Monica’s singles chart run managed to help her place higher than Brandy on that chart ya’ll keep bringing up in every Brandy post, but album sales has always been the meat &potatoes of Billboard.

    • gina May 4, 2018

      well Monica has had a Gold-selling album this decade, brandy hasn’t had one in over 15, almost 20 years, so apparently her albums sales are just as strong as the vocal envelope’s used to be…..

    • Cali May 4, 2018

      Like I said doll, Brandy has album sales, but Monica has an over all better music resume, records set, and records broken. Which is why she is placed above your fav. Now that’s what the meat of a phenomenal artist is based on.

  16. gina May 4, 2018

    People that think brandy is a vocal bible are the same people that think beyonce is the greatest performer of all time, or cardi b is a good rapper. LMFAO.

    • King Z May 4, 2018

      …in other words, only the sane members of the general public?

    • Let it be known May 5, 2018

      Bey is the greatest though. But other wise than that, I agree, because that vocal bible crap is hilarious.

      • Marie June 24, 2018

        Nope. That belongs to MJ or Prince.

  17. Let it be known May 5, 2018

    Damn she’s is ugly as fk. And that vocal bible crap needs to stop 😂😂
