    LeToya looks fabolous. Love the hot pink lipstick!

    Ciara I love everything about her outfit.


  22. Burmy

    Just to set the record straight: LIL MAMA IS 19 YEARS OLD (so she BEEN legal)

    Now that I have alleviated your fear, feel free to make these comments about her (I think she needs to stop by Wisconsin sometime so this shawty can get loose and have her lip gloss be poppin-over me of course!)


  23. ugh

    wtf?! that shanell girl (who is she?) look a mess!

    cici and lil mama look like they competing in some drag queen competition. i dont know cici lately the eyebrows and makeup(dark mask around the cheekbones and forhead) make her look masculine. she look fly as hell in the L,S,M video and on the rap-up cover.

    tea’s wig aint on point, she should have came with her nivea wig from the cause a scene video haha

    melody’s mustache and kitchen are distracting.

    Letoya looks BANGING! girls take note!

    Denyce and Alesha look good, dont know who they are but they looking fly.

    Adriennes boobs look so far apart in that dress she got on. looks kind of funny. she needs a new hair style (hasnt changed in YEARS)

    DJ skee can hit and skee(t) anytime LOL

    damn rap-up you should give one of those gift bags away as a contest (including international readers, cause canada aint that far from ya, just look north:P)


  24. Rap-Up

  28. MACH

    but I love LeToya and Ci.

    Ci does look like a man here to put it bluntly. idk… don’t know what it is, but just callin it like I see.
