    LoL at nick saying Fantasy Ride is flopping -

    You have no idea how many albums its sold world wide

    She opened for Britney Spears (biggest/most demanded celeb.in the world) in London

    She’s opening for one of the greatest rappers of all time (jay-z) for 10 shows

    then Ciara and Britney Are doing a 20 city tour together – she’s on her grind and the album is DOPE!!!

    And What exactly are you doin w/your life?

    @ itsmeniccas

    I needed a comic relief for today, so thank you for your stupid and brainless rant. If your going to try to insult me, please at least use some correct grammar so everyone can understand.

    [Reply]

  38. Kyle

    Nick, yes Fantasy Ride isn’t doing too well but it’s 2009…who really is selling much nowadays? A few artists are selling decent #’s but a majority of OUR favorite artists are experiencing sluggish sales. Therefore, Ciara is doing what she should be doing and touring with the biggest pop star in the world(Britney) and the biggest rapper in the world(Jay-Z). Chick is getting paiiiidddd.

    Tout la / I wouldn’t niescsarely see neither of them live, but if I had to choose one, it would be Ci. She knows she is not the greatest singer, but she can make up for it by dancing. Sorta like Britney does. Oh, and she definitely has stage presence (knowing how to connect w/ her audience.Rihanna is cute, but she lacks stage presence big time! She is so robotic in the delivery of her songs with her off key goat-like singing voice, and doesn’t dance AT ALL! If I wanted to see someone pose like a supermodel for an entire concert I would’ve gone and watched a runway show. Oh and she doesn’t play any instruments live. What kind of show is that??And I guess I just feel like Rih just tries too hard to be something she’s not. Simulating masturbation on stage, smashing guitars The self-proclaimed Black Madonna needs to show me something the real Madonna actually HASN’T done. Now a few artists I would see live? Gaga, Adele, or Pink. That’s entertaining, surprising, and unexpected. Love it.
