      Kelly Rowland Mentors her? Oh, that’s why there are ages between her songs and no actual route or theme where her music is going.

        All this mouth until u ask them when last normani saw the inside of the billboard hot 100 chart and then its crickets……

    An attractive girl, but very little star quality. She needs to stop name dropping more successful women and focus on establishing herself and her brand.

    • Clarks0o0ñ October 14, 2020

      “but very little star quality.”

      The way you spilled

      The only way normani can make headlines is name dropping famous people.
      A clout chaser.

      There’s nothing interesting about her that’s why she’s always talking about another person in all her interviews.

      In this interview she talked about 4 famous women and 1 girl group.

      Rihanna
      Megan thee stallion
      Naomi Campbell
      Kelly Rowland
      Fifth harmony

      There’s nothing interesting about normani
      A dull boring girl

  7. Keeping it real October 14, 2020

    The eyebrows girl is no, they look like 2 big caterpillar‘s sitting on your forehead.

  8. tyty October 14, 2020

    Why are her eyebrows like that? Ffs. Why is she waffling on about other celebrities for 6 minutes? Who is her manager?

  9. Fancy BISH October 14, 2020

    ASAP Rocky needs to sort his eyebrows out yikes.

  10. Erica October 14, 2020

    Those eyebrows are not it

  11. Bbraxton October 14, 2020

    Normani moves like a legend and trust she’s light years away from that title. She will go the route of Rita Ora if she keeps it up. So much hype with nothing to show for it. In this age you gotta put up or shut up. It’s not 2003 you need VISIBILITY, you need MUSIC, you need PERSONALITY, you need VIBES. You need something! So far Normani has shown none of the above!!!

    • Taylor Swift 1989 October 14, 2020

      She’s no Camila Cabello

  12. robvado October 14, 2020

    Tupac…is that you?

  13. Ant October 15, 2020

    Why are you all hating on her !!! Smh
