    Cardiac Arrest and Mega Man performance was a snooze fest 😴 they weren’t in sync at all and messed up the choreography. Plus the song is ass. Not a good song whatsoever.

    Nicki performance was so classy. She looked and sounded beautiful. Those runs were buttery smooth. Then she gave us an exclusive and reminded all them dirty btches who THE QUEEN is 👑 “U btches look up to meee 🔥🔥🔥🔥😭” then she pointed each of them out in the crowd. They all looked dumb lmfaooo. God I love Nicki Minaj. And her body looked sickening.

    Not to mention she took home “Best Hip-Hop” award tonight. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 it’s her night!!! 🎀🎀🎀

    • Diabetes UNBOTHERED September 12, 2023

      1 has the GRAMMY tho 😆 🤣 😂

      and you are simply BIASED…

      If every little minor detail of both performances stayed exactly the Same yet we switched Nikki and Cardi…

      you would swear nikki had the better song (Bongos) and performance (Bongos)… and swear Cardi was so stiff and boring with the Flop Friday trash 🗑

      😆 🤣 😂

      • UHoesFunny September 12, 2023

        Gurl wut?! 😂🤣 just shut the hell up

      • ShugeAveryPee September 12, 2023

        She raps about the same thing over and over, “Btches wanna look like me, “btches wanna be me.” Btches are my sons,” are y’all not tired this yet? When is she gonna evolve lyrically? And who tf is trying to be her when she herself has high jacked another Btch’s whole style 💀

      • UHoesFunny September 12, 2023

        So give us more “my p ussy fat, I’m tighter than a nun” music from Cardi and Meg? Shut the hell up fool. You sound stupid dumb and slow

      • PB September 13, 2023

        Get that b*tch a quarter and car tell ‘em park it.

    • Paulo September 12, 2023

      what’s “exclusive” about rehashing “all these b****** is my sons” for the 30th time rhyming me with me 🥴😭 why would she rather tarnish her legacy with this corny s*** just to be petty? Garbz ain’t s*** for gassing her up, she’s better than this mess

      • UHoesFunny September 12, 2023

        Are you mad babe?

      • Paulo September 12, 2023

        You know what? I kinda am lol it pisses me off that the woman who gave us Pink Friday and The Pinkprint became so corny and pressed

      • UHoesFunny September 13, 2023

        Gurl shut up. Please name something that’s out that’s better and more substance than Nicki’s music. BOZOS?! 😂😂😂😂

      • Paulo September 13, 2023

        Barbie World and Super Freaky Girl, substance? Ok 😂 Anything on Traumazine or Doja’s latest singles got more substance now cry about it. Nicki lost the throne she constantly claims to her own bitterness over Cardi’s achievements and that’s the tea 🍵

      • UHoesFunny September 13, 2023

        Tramazine? 💀 that album was full of FLOPS and only about sucking d ick and shaking ass. You’re an idiot 😂 Doja literally panders to Nicki and name dropped her in Attention. She needs Nicki LOL. Try again babe 😘

      • Paulo September 13, 2023

        I said what I said babe – this Nicki we seeing now could NEVER pull off real raw vulnerability like Anxiety or Flip Flop or even Crying In The Car from the Suga ep years ago… and why are you shaming booty twerking music when you keep claiming half baked sampling stripper pop Super Freaky Girl Barbie World Nicki 🥴😭 the self-drag is embarrassing.

    Invasion of Privacy 4X Plat
    3 Diamond 💎 Hits
    5 #1 hits
    1 grammy

    ^4 achievements…
    Nikki will never see. 😆 🤣 😂 💯

  8. eric September 12, 2023

    I’m not a Stray Kids fan, but they did a great job making pop music exciting like it was in the early 2000s.

    Cool to see LL perform again.

  9. UHoesFunny September 12, 2023

    Nicki performed twice tonight. They let her do the 50 years of hip hop tribute. But they didn’t select cardiac or mega man, they ARE NOT qualified nor are they HIP HOP 😮‍💨🤣🤣🤣

    • Diabetes UNBOTHERED September 12, 2023

      Lol, why is it so hard for you to admit that BOTH Nikki and cardi did a great job tonight regardless of which team you are on?

      Super freaky girls & last time I saw you are both good singles

      Wap, UP, Hot shyt & Bongos are all good songs and videos…

      Both cardi and Nikki are doing well as it partains to salvaging their horrid roll outs with recent music Quality & videos, performance etc

      Why is that so hard for you to admit?

      • UHoesFunny September 12, 2023

        LOL 😂 BONGOS is hot sht 💩 I’m not listening to that crap. Horrible song. Cardi makes terrible music. Hence why she’s afraid to go solo. She’s been flopping since 2012 and now leans on her peers for a hit. I’m afraid her ship has sailed and I’m even more afraid that she and you all see it too. Time to face the music babe. Nicki is Big Wig. Get it with. All those fake accolades won’t save Cardi or megs career

      • UHoesFunny September 12, 2023


      • Diabetes UNBOTHERED September 12, 2023

      Nikki is POP not hip hop like cardi and meg.

  10. Diabetes UNBOTHERED September 12, 2023

    Cardi > Nikki

    • UHoesFunny September 12, 2023

      Cardi is locked in a 360 deal 😂

      None of those fake accolades belong to her. They belong to her writers LOL 🤭

      And we’re in 2023 babe. Those songs are all 2014. What has been done for us lately?

      Oh I know 🙋🏽‍♀️ FLOPPED

      She’s broke botched and washed 🧼

      You will never get a sophomore album

      She said she was “coming” 2 years ago.
      Now she’s coming 2024 💀💀💀

      Good fckin night

  13. Diabetes UNBOTHERED September 12, 2023


    What do the following have in common

    Invasion of Privacy
    Bodak Yellow
    I like it

    They all RULE nikki’s entire Catalog on SPOTIFY 💯 😆 🤣

  14. fabizzle September 13, 2023

    WOW – Keyshia Cole did that! So glad she came out and sounded so good & that mic was ON!!!!

  15. PB September 13, 2023

    The whole audience yelling in unison “WHO THE F*CK TOLD B*TCHES THEY WAS ME NOW” directly after performing worldwide MIXTAPE classic Itty Bitty Piggy at the VMA’s is insane!! I live.😂😂 Even the haters love Itty Bitty Piggy and you a god damn lie if you say you don’t lol How hard must it be to be be unable to enjoy your favorite Nicki songs that y’all legit grew up to because you have to act like you like Bongos. I know ole girl wishing she held that single 😂😂😂😂

    • Ernestine September 13, 2023

      Of course they always put super fans and stans in the pit during performances Nicki biggest hits are pop songs like Super bass and pound the alarm

      • PB September 13, 2023

        Itty Bitty Piggy is a staple Nicki Minaj song but okay lol This girl is a rapper before anything, y’all wish she was just a pop star so your faves could slide by with those pitiful raps😂

  16. The Ora-cle September 13, 2023

    Shakira was the Beyonce of the Night

    • Lanafan1 September 13, 2023

      She was!

  17. SideChick September 13, 2023

    Nicki is so corny and dated lol even the new song she previewed sounds like something from 2016.

    • UHoesFunny September 13, 2023

      And BONGOS is a hit? 😂😂😂😂 I have to laugh

  18. Ernestine September 13, 2023

    I’m surprised a star of her caliber Taylor Swift even attended this event but then again she’ll attend as long as she wins all the awards lol and gets camera time shaking her skinny shoulders and flat mayonnaise booty. Looked to be a bunch of social media “influencers” and tiktok rappers in attendance. The ghetto.

  19. Rainbow September 13, 2023

    Award shows aren’t what they used to be.

  20. Ms. Ling Ling September 13, 2023

    Tired of Shakira’s boring sold out funky performance!!! She was probably using the same Super Bowl pre-recording tracks.
