    Rihanna not R&B artist anymore?
    wtf?
    She had ‘Rehab’, why is all her nominations ‘Live Your Life’.
    BET has been biased towards Rihanna, she never won a Rihanna award, yet.
    Though Rihanna has won a MTV, AMA, Grammy, and so many other awards that are arguably better and higher than a BET award and Rih can’t win a lesser award (BET)?!!! Ridiculous.

    This is bs. Based on the criteria used for Best Male Hip Hop Artist, Luda should have been nominated. Rick Ross is garbage, he doesn’t sell or have much hits this past year. And for the majority of this year, Kanye has been autotune and pop/r&b. The other choices could have been Plies or Game at least.

    The “Best Female Hip-Hop Artist” category is horrible, why is Lil Mama even nominated? It seems like they couldn’t think of any more female rappers so they just randomly added her.

    I hope Keri cleans every category she’s nominated for. She deserves some recognition.

  19. BeyFlop

    SO NOW THAT SHE’S NOMINATED I GUESS SHALLOW BEYAWNSAY WILL SHOW UP THIS YEAR.

    HMMMMMMM. BET is so predictable.

    Chris,

    You are right, BeyawnSay in particular flopped majorly!

    She’s already re-releasing next month.

    STANS ARE SO DEEP IN DENIAL ABOUT THIS CHICK’S TALENT.

    HER MUSIC SUX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HER TOUR IS NOT SELLING OUT. SHE’S PLAYED OUT AND KEEPS HERSELF IN THE LIMELIGHT WITH ENDORSEMENTS AND MAGAZINES. LOL. SHE’S DESPERATE AND OLD

    Keri Hilson, is up and coming. Her MATERIAL IS 1000X BETTER THAN ALL OF BEYAWNSAY’S CDS LUMPED TOGETHER.

    Keri will be alright. She’s more of a writer, but her CD is quality.

    BeYawnSay needs these awards to soothe her fragile breaking ego. LOL. She knows her game is lackluster these days. Seen one performance seen them all.

    BET awards ain’t nothin but a popularity contest. It’s all bout who they suck up to the most, high school all over again. I mean look at terrence and rocsi, they practically wet they pants everytime “certain” artist walk on the stage and then act all sadidy with others. I’m so glad Pharrell said what he said the other day on 106. and I can’t even believe that NERD has never been nominated before, that’s crazy!!!

  31. N?A

    It is funny how ppl think beyonce’s new CD is a flop lol…..Her Cd has sold 3,820,000 copies WW and about 2,200,000 from the US….and has had great single success in the US and WW. before she releases her re-release CD she will been have sold 4,000,000 copies of IASF WW and with the RE-release and right single selections in the future IASF can easliy reach 7,000,000 when its all said and done……so some of you ppl need to stop reading mediafakeout and learn the facts,,,,and by the way her tour is selling great she has sold out concerts throughout europe……and when the tour is done and the gross amount comes in beyonce will get the last laugh lol….

    I AM CONFUSED. HOW IS BEYONCE’S CD A FLOP AND SHE IS OVER 4 MILLION SOLD WORLDWIDE AND 2 TIMES PLATINUM IN THE US. THATS NO FLOP. ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU YOU SEE THAT BEYONCE PUSHED 485,000 HER FIRST WEEK, WHILE KERI HILSON AND CIARA DIDNT EVEN PUSH 100,000 THERE FOR WEEK.

    HOW IS THIS A FLOP? SHE HAD A NUMBER 1 ALBUM THAT IS DOUBLE PLATINUM IN THE US, AND HAS BEEN OUT 6 MONTHS. WITH ANOTHER 2.5 SOLD MILLION OVER SEAS. GET OUT OF HER HATER
