    How the f@ck u snub Cardi for artist of the year?

  10. JOHNVIDAL September 12, 2018

    The 3 artists mentioned in the headline are so basic that it says it all about the current state of awards like AMAs and the popular music industry in general for that matter. So basic and uneventful.

  11. Beam Me Up Scotty September 12, 2018

    Really that’s it? Drake obviously going to clean house.
