    People forgot Camicky Cabelly released an album and 8 flop singles 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😁🤣🤣😁🤣😁

    The Awards are starting to see she was smoke & mirrors . No nominations. So sad.

    Guess she’s not the Beyonce

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) October 26, 2020

      Nor Normanly 💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️ Still no debut album.., poor boo boo💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿

    • Sally Mae Say October 26, 2020

      They didn’t forget Camila released an album, they just realized it was trash and deserved no recognition. I cant wait for the Grammy’s to pay her dust too…especially after she cried over her dad at this years Grammys LOL

  2. DC October 26, 2020

    Maybe this will help don’t stop cause it’s flopping all over meg overrated

  3. Fancy BISH October 26, 2020

    So glad to see Blinding Lights in the Pop/Rock category 🥰🤳🏽

  4. Bebo October 26, 2020

    Camila have her moment in those awards before… hope she get nominated in the Grammys

  5. Maraj October 26, 2020

    That’s unfair to actual females. Meg belongs in the trans category.

  6. Your Name October 26, 2020

    Since when tf was Doja Cat a Soul/R&B artist!!!!

    • Tito October 26, 2020

      My thoughts exactly

    • Sally Mae Say October 26, 2020

      Well she’s not a rapper. Spends too much time singing. Say So was written for Katy Perry…its a POP song. Not a rap song

  7. Paulo October 26, 2020

    🙄 @ Chilombo not being nominated for R&B album. Hope The Weeknd and Meg win big!

    • Sally Mae Say October 26, 2020

      Because Chilombo is one big stale charcuterie board with no meat. The album sucked

  8. 1988 October 26, 2020

    Congratulations are in order for Lady Gaga, The Weeknd, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, The Jonas Brothers, Post Malone and Taylor Swift. 🙂

  9. Fancy BISH October 26, 2020

    I love the Weeknd as he mainly dates white Ladies and not the ashy types pf ladies with no flavour.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) October 26, 2020

      Yessssss taste!! 💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️Nor the tofu type bish 💅🏿💅🏿

  10. Hmmm… October 26, 2020

    Why the hell is Doja nominated for soul/R&b 🙄 a joke.

  11. Sally Mae Say October 26, 2020

    No nominations for the music industry c_um bucket Camila.

  12. Theman October 26, 2020

    Doja Cat is not an r&b artist.
    That’s outlandish.

  13. Fancy BISH October 26, 2020

    I hope KING Kanye West wins.
