    Able2JustUggghhhh Reply:

    @TREAL.!,
    A Grammy is a GRAMMY!
    People will stop bringing up her accomplishments in the 1800′s when Nicki stop jocking Kims style from the 1800′s! I’m over these dang fans. I can see if U don’t like her, but saying ‘so what’ 2 any Grammy is dumb! It’s great artist every day that get screwed over. Nicki isn’t the first female rapper to be nominated for a Grammy. If I recall Lauryn Hill was nominated for 7 her first album & WON 6 (including album of the year). At one point Nicki liked Kim enough to be inspired by her to a certain extent & to be honest I wish the beef would end. It’s dumb. As fans this needs to stop. I’m just… I’m just done. I mean I really wish we could appreciate the vets who paved the way & be excited that we have someone out now keeping it poppin without constant shade, but I guess it is what it is…. :/

  21. Kyle

    WHAT!!!!!!????? I’m sorry I love Rihanna but Album of the Year???? She should be nowhere near that category. There are so many other albums that are more deserving IMO. I’m being completely honest, especially with the Grammy’s being known for recognzing “real music.”

    [Reply]

    Samantha Reply:

    @Kyle, i somewhat agree…i think her spot and gagas should’ve been taken HOWEVER she did have one of the best albums of the year when it came to critical and commercial success and what about the album makes it not “real music”

    [Reply]

    Kyle Reply:

    @Samantha, I really just don’t think it should be included in this category. Rihanna should be so thankful for everyone who contributed to this album because she did nothing but just sing those damn songs. people wrote, produced, and probably tweaked her voice to make her sound better in the studio. What the hell is the music world coming to!!!!???

  22. JHP

    F**k the grammys, MBDTF not being nominated for album of the year is total bullsh*t! Give Kanye AND Hip-Hop credit where it’s due smh. And if Nicki Minaj wins best new artist, and J. Cole gets snubbed I might kill someone real talk. Other then that, Adele is gonna win everything most likely. *Waits on the Hip-Hop & R&B Nominations

    Many thanks to the Academy for nominating J. Cole! That’s quality music and I wish he’d win, but I know he most likely won’t. So, fingers crossed for The Band Perry to win Best New Artist!

    Congrats to Adele and Bruno Mars as well! I hope they both take a trophy home!

    @Ray, Not because the music is just ingenious, but because it was in the charts!!! Rihanna doesn’t make award winning songs except songs that hit the chart and top it.

    [Reply]

    chianne Reply:

    @Ray, Ri’s singles are dominating the charts, but LOUD is not doing anything special. This suggests that these Grammys are NOT just about popularity. And Chris Brown got the best R&B album nomination both this year and last – and he ain’t a real popular guy. But CBrown’s his music is quality and creative, in my opinion – so maybe that IS what these nominations about

    NuBLOSSOM Reply:

    @Derek, Nobody is hating on her. It makes no sense. The Grammys can’t get their ish together. “Loud” NO DOUBT deserves a nomination for best pop album but album of the year? Ummm, no. They’re tripping. Where were they during her “Rated R” era? That album was f’n subbed. Not even a nomination. I love “Loud” but “Rated R” was a classic in its own right. It was so unique and raw. “Loud” is just a good pop album. I’ma be happy for her regardless but I like giving credit where its due. “Rated R” wasn’t close to making the noise that “Loud” did so they obviously turned their noises up but now they want to kiss ass? Save it.

    @Johnathan, Uh, Chris Brown’s nomination should be right where it is, it was No.1 on R&B’s Album charts and @ Shaniqua his album isn’t Pop, it’s R&B! Like @ someone said, the hating was going to start! Congrats to CB and all the other artists that was nominated!

    Johnathan Reply:

    @say it, Oh come on with that nonsense. An album being #1 does not constitute its place on a Grammy list just because it was #1. You mean to tell me F.A.M.E is a better R&B package than Jazmine Sullivan’s Love Me Back, Jill Scott’s The Light of the Sun, or even Marsha Ambrosius’ Late Night & Early Mornings? Pshhhhh, please.

    [Reply]

    say it Reply:

    @Johnathan, Like it or not, F.A.M.E. is a good album, and apparently, it being number one does make a difference, isn’t that the reason why some of the other artists were nominated, cause they had number one albums and number one singles, if that’s the case then Chris Brown isn’t the only one that doesn’t deserves a nomination! You and others are just being some haters! Please……

    Y’all might committ suicide if Kim & Nicki dropped the beef. Nicki has 100 more diss verses than Kim. Fact. Pretty much all her collabo’s aside from a selected few are disses. So cut that shiiii out. Fake or not Kim isn’t the only one fueling it.
    2nd.. I never said I didn’t like Nicki, but how can U hate Kim when she inspired & influence the very person you 2 worship?
    It makes no sense!
    It’s like me liking Chris Brown’s dance moves, but hating Michael Jackson’s dance moves. It’s crazy because everytime Chris dance you know where he drew his influence from.

    It’s FACT that Nicki loved Kim at one time & the only reason someone would waste words dissing someone is because they obviously care. The same with Kim. So I tell U what , no matter what goes down, Kim is still a legend in the game & Nicki is still making her own wave. No shade needs to be thrown. Whether U feel like Nicki is better, it’s your opinion. But I’m about facts. And the facts still remains that Kim has a Grammy, 1 or 100… It’s still an accomplishment. I never said Nicki will never win.

Kanye is the shit but his last album was most def not his best work! His biggest record was Monster & that was because of NICKI MINAJ! #TeamMinaj Til iDIE!

Not that it was complete garbage, but from my understanding it wasn’t about a popularity contest. The biggest winners last year(including album of the year) didn’t even go gold & weren’t even household names. I mean who the hell is bigger than Justin Bieber??? I mean Drake was bigger than her last year, sold out headline tours on his own & all & didn’t win best new artist. I would still like to believe they have a shred of dignity still. If they dont… Man shiiii is gonna be WILD! Trust.

    This is all so unfortunate. When you listen to great bodies of work, to find out they were snubbed for projects which were more commercially successful…..it’s a disgrace. The Grammy committee should be appalled for having the audacity to nominate an album like “Loud” for AOTY while overlooking albums like “4″ and “MBDTF”. This is not a Rihanna attack either; it’s just reality. An album of fast-food #1 singles does not constitute a quality, and deep down even the Rihanna stans know that “Loud” was not her best work. Even the Best R&B Album category….you mean to tell me “4″ and Jill Scott’s “The Light of the Sun” did not deserve nominations? Are you kidding me? I’ve lost a serious amount of respect for the Grammys this year, and I don’t know if I will ever regain it.

    Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album was the most critical-acclaimed, universal-acclaimed, well-received, best album of 2010, and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy has a Metacritic score of 94/100, which is the one of the highest scores for any album in music history, and it went certified platinum without any mega pop crossover hits with the exception of All of the Lights song, and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy doesn’t get nominated for Best Album of The Year at 2012 Grammy Awards, I think The Grammy Awards made a huge mistake by not nominating My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy for Best Album of The Year. Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne was one of the best albums of 2011, went certified platinum and had two hit songs in Otis, and N***** In Paris, and got good reviews, but doesn’t get nominated for Best Album of The Year. I believe both My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Watch The Throne should have been nominated for Best Album of The Year. Kanye West’s MBDTF didn’t sell as many records as Adele’s 21, Lady GaGa’s Born This Way, and Rihanna’s Loud Albums, but Kanye West’s MBDTF album got better reviews and was far better than all of the albums nominated for Best Album of the Year, and Kanye West’s MBDTF still didn’t get nominated for Best Album of The Year. Arcade Fire’s The Surburbs album won Best Album of the Year at the Grammys in early 2011 because that album was critical acclaim despite the fact The Surburbs didn’t go platinum, Kanye West’s MBDTF album got better reviews than Arcade Fire’s The Surburbs album, and Kanye West’s MBDTF sold more records than Arcade Fire’s The Surburbs, but Kanye West’s MBDTF album still didn’t get nominated for Best Album of The Year. I believe the Grammy Awards made a terrible mistake by not nominating Kanye West’s MBDTF album for Best Album of The Year. I believe the Grammy Awards are prejudice and racist towards rappers who actually make albums better than the usual compeition. I think its a shame that Lauryn Hill, and Outkast were the last true great rappers to win Best Album of The Year. Kanye West’s MBDTF got better reviews than Outkast’s Speakerbox/The Love Below, and Outkast’s Speakerbox/The Love Below won Best Album of the Year at the Grammys in 2004. I know Kanye West has a bad public image, and reputation for being a jerk, but Kanye West is a great music artist, and Kanye West’s music is second to none. Any music fan who is totally unbiased, and is not a biased mainstream pop music fan will tell Kanye West makes great music. Even if Kanye West wins Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards in 2012, for either MBDTF, or Watch The Throne, I will still look back at 2012 and say Kanye West got robbed, despite the fact Kanye West got the most Grammy Awards nominations. I have lost all respect for the Grammy Awards after watching the way they have cheated Kanye West’s great music. When Kanye was nominated in both 2005, and 2006, he should had won for both College Dropout, and Late Registration, but lost both of those years. In 2008, Kanye West lost Best Album of the Year for a third time. MBDTF is arguably Kanye’s best album, and he doesn’t even get nominated for Best Album of The Year. The Grammy Awards voters are nothing but stupid, ignorant, old, bitch ass racists who don’t know shit about music, and I might not ever watch the Grammy Awards again.

It makes no sense for Kanye West to have the most nominations, but not get nominated for Best Album of The Year. Voters continue to be prejudice towards rappers winning outside of the rap field. MBDTF got great reviews and was better than every album that came out in 2010, and 2011, but couldn’t get nominated for Best Album of The Year. The Grammy Awards have no more respect because the Grammy Awards are racist and stupid.

She didn’t have to show any of her body parts just her amazing voice. If Rihanna wins Album of the Year over Adele I’m definitely not watching the grammys anymore, because Loud was nothing by songs about sex it had no substance.

    @uche, I disagree, I don’t think My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is overrated at all. Every once in a while, we get an album like My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy that gets 94% on Metacritic. Keep in mind that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy barely went platinum despite all of its critical success. MBDTF didn’t even have any mega pop crossover hits with the exception of All of The Lights. MBDTF was more overlooked by the Grammys and mainstream media, unlike Rihanna’s Loud Album which sold more records, had more hit singles, and got medicore, bad reviews from unbiased music critics left and right, but that’s my unbiased opinion.

  95. TREAL.!

    Nicki Minaj – PF ; M. Score = 69 ; Sales = 1,663,000
    Kanye W. – MBDTF ; M. Score = 94 ; Sales = 1,212,000
    Jay & Ye – WTT ; M. Score = 75 ; Sales = 1,104,000
    Wayne – T.C. IV ; M. Score = 60 ; Sales = 1,752,000
    Lupe F. – Lasers ; M. Score = 57 ; Sales = 460,000

    if you look at the stats, & what every album should have sold, the only one that matches up to its state is Pink Friday.! its so many factors entangled with that (her being a female rapper, having sold the most albums until wayne’s release, etcc) im not saying that she will win, but it would make since if she did in my opinion.! iddk.! the grammys are very funny with this type of stuff but we will see i guess.

    @TREAL.!,
    I feel your points. I share the same sentiment to an extent. But I’m all the way with @TRA on this.
    Bieber sold more than Drake & Esperanza (She wasn’t even gold) AND had more hits than them. But look who won. Matter of fact! Look at who won album of the year! That act wasn’t even gold prior to wining. I would still be (overall) shocked if Pink Friday trumps Kanye. It just wouldn’t make sense at all pass actual figures. Carter 4 sold more than them both… But we know that jojnt ain’t Grammy worthy either. Hell, Wayne was probably shocked. Lasers content beat Carter 4 by a land slide do I can’t even understand the score for that.

    @TREAL, I like Nicki Minaj, I think Nicki Minaj has talent, and it wouldn’t suprise me if Nicki Minaj won Best Rap Album at 2012 Grammy Awards for Pink Friday since Pink Friday sold the most records, and went certified platinum. There is a chance that Kanye West’s MBDTF album and Kanye West/Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne album could split votes which could also lead to Nicki Minaj winning Best Rap Album for Pink Friday. But if Nicki Minaj wins Best Rap Album for Pink Friday, I think there is going to be even bigger backlash against The Grammy Awards, then what it is now. It’s bad enough that both MBDTF and Watch The Throne which got better critical reviews than Pink Friday didn’t get nominated for Album of The Year, it would be even more horrible if Pink Friday won Best Rap Album over MBDTF and Watch The Throne. Kanye West had a better year than Nicki Minaj, if you look at it from a record sales standpoint, and combine the record sales of both MBDTF and Watch The Throne. MBDTF sold 1.2 million copies, and Watch The Throne sold 1.1 million copies in the U.S., combine those record sales and you will see that Kanye West sold 2.3 million copies this year. That means that both of Kanye’s albums got better reviews and also means Kanye outsold Nicki Minaj despite the fact Nicki had more hit songs than Kanye. I won’t be mad at Nicki, if she wins Best Rap Album, but I don’t think she deserves to win and the Grammy Awards will get dissed across America if this happens. I just feel that both of Kanye’s albums are more deserving, that’s all.

    Ashamed…. Somebody should do something for Kanye West,
    I don’t know who and how, but I need to see some reactions, cause after that the man could lost all his motivation, we neva know with Kanye, he could stop is career cause he probably never do better than MBDTF, that is frustrating… This is very sad for the most creative artist in america, how they can judged the man and not his music ?

    Kanye leads, but he doesn’t have the album of the year nomination, that’s a scandale. MBDTF or Watch The Throne are so far better than Born This Way or Loud.

    This is so crazy, why can’t you people be happy for all that was nominated?! Them all being nominated for a Grammy says it all no matter what. So some artists that didn’t get nominated for this or that or this artist should be where this artist is, or this artist shouldn’t be here at all…it’s all stupid! So some didn’t get nominated, maybe next year, but there is no need to hate on the ones that was nominated, ex. Rihanna, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj and so on! Apparently they were nominated for a reason, they had good quality albums, songs or whatever point blank. Grow the hell up people, this is so stupid!
