    @kwayzee, That was the wrong Minaj song to choose though. She released better and worse songs than that though.I would have put ‘You da Boss” with Rick Ross or “Fly” even though that came out last year.

    Fyi Future is signed to Columbia (the record label she’s on) & he’s also from Texas, so I think those were contributing factors (although I understand why she might like the song; its kinda addictive). I like that she’s into a variety of music & that she was honest. Oh & I fucking love James Blake!

    MAN DOWN? what? is she serious? oh , i know the reason, she wants rihannas navy to like her, at leasts she coulve said ckb, man down totally sucks

    [Reply]

    Lisa Reply:

    @ARYO, people can’t give credit where it is due. Man Down is a good song. It had great success (at least it did over here in the Netherlands). I can see why people don’t always like Rihanna, but, damn, California King Bed was the same sugary pop song we’ve been hearing for decades now. Man Down was fresh and dope.

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @Lisa, Totally agree, I don’t care much for Ri but Man Down was a strong song w/ a message.

    Weber from Brazil Reply:

    @Lisa, you right…Man Down was HUGE in Europe, mainly in France, which it was #1 for like 3 weeks…
    so I’m not surprised that Beyoncé likes this song…cause it’s very catchy and has a very strong message!

    @Kayla, When was the last time you seen them together? Just like Lil Kim’s PayPal account number, I want receipts, photos, or something. She did that song with Kim back when she was less particular about features. I’ve seen more recent pictures of Bey and Nicki, than Lil Kim and anyone relevant. No shade to Kim, but let’s be honest.

    Audrey Hepburn Reply:

    @Pucci, I must thank you for your response. I’m sorry but I don’t think we’ve met; because if we did, you’d know that I have all the class one can have, dear! I can probably teach you a few things, like:

    1) How to accept someone’s entitled opinion.
    2) How to add an “s” to a noun to make it plural. “Artist[s] like Adele, Frank Ocean & Beyonce.” You need some grammatical help I see.

    and F.Y.I., I was speaking of all of the trashy, sex, and drug referencing songs on the list, but it’s funny how you only chose Adele and Frank Ocean to point out and ignored the others.

    WELCOME TO THE AUDREY FAN CLUB sugarlump! But you will have to take a number b/c more important ppl are in front of you.

    Love,

    Audrey

    @Audrey Hepburn,

    “@Lisa, Darling, If you don’t care then don’t respond to my comment.”

    You should think about that while you visit posts about B. Or….maybe it’s that you love her so much, you just can’t do without checkin’ on her???

    “…and F.Y.I., I was speaking of all of the trashy, sex, and drug referencing songs on the list…”

    This is a quite interesting comment considering ya girl Rihanna is on here. I’d think you’d give be able to give Beyonce a lil cred for showin’ love to someone YOU like…that’s not classless.

    On another note…how’ve you been?

    [Reply]

    Audrey Hepburn Reply:

    @brainfood.com, OMG! I missed you. lol

    Thank you for asking my love. I am as fabulous as ever, and I assume you are one step closer to the ARMY, correct? Way to go!

    But I love to visit all of these posts to get a good laugh at how ridiculous some of these people are. Some are like little fish just taking the bait. How silly.

    Oh, and Rihanna is not my girl b/c I don’t know her, but her work ethic and tough resistance against adversity speaks volumes for who she is as a person – not to mention her adorable accent lol. Unlike these other crazed fans, I don’t attack people for their hateful or negative comments against Rihanna. Even though I may not agree, they are still entitled to their opinions.

    … and since you decided to reappear, I am wondering why the press is now revealing Bey is due any day now and her delusional stans swore up and down she was due in February? Her stans need to get real and admit when there’s smoke surrounding their idol. They can praise her and tear down Rihanna, but can’t admit when there is some shady behavior on Bey’s part. Unbalanced, eh?

    Also, I know you are such a kind hearted individual searching for peace and positivity, so as a personal favor, I’m asking you to address KaramelKisses above telling me to “just die already.” That is a bit extreme, no? But I know you are the perfect person to eliminate hate, so I’d appreciate it sugarlump! Thanks in advance.

    Love,

    Audrey
    XOXOXO :D

    @Audrey Hepburn,

    LOL Yes, I am one step closer to the army…thank you for showin’ love. I’m glad to hear that things are fine!

    As for the delusion stans (and YES! some of them are definitely delusional), I agree with you when you said:
    “…They can praise her and tear down Rihanna, but can’t admit when there is some shady behavior on Bey’s part. Unbalanced, eh?”

    Turribly unbalanced. As for KaramelKisses, I probably should say something, but I think her comment might be coming not from a place of hate, but maybe from your opinion about someone she feels strongly about.

    We’re all guilty of spreading a lil bit of hate–even lil ole brainfood.com has had a fair share of callin’ people names. I just didn’t see a need to say anything because maybe she was wanting your disdain for B to die and not necessarily you as a person…maybe? I could be wrong.

    I’m glad to see you’re still as cheery and funny as ever.

    And again, you’re a right…everyone is entitled to their own opinion…whether it’s giving their thoughts on a singers level of realness (which I think they are all a lil pretentious to some degree, but hell! It’s hollywood! Normal doesn’t sell, right?), or whether someone feels you (or your feelings) should just die already.

    …and HEY! I’m only one person! I only take evil on a case by case basis! LOL

    @Audrey Hepburn, That’s the reason why the divorce rate is so high, people only care for looks and not the personality. I’ve seen it all. Men only want women if they have a great smile and a wonderful personality. Looks are only important to those who don’t intend to be with you forever.

  28. DJInVincible74

    Well, this list certainly gives possible reasoning as to why Beyonce’s latest album is failing to spark interest at Top 40/Pop radio. It appears she only listens to R&B and nothing else. I guess that’s her prerogative but it’s a bit narrow-minded.

    [Reply]

    Pucci Reply:

    @DJInVincible74, How is listening to R&B narrowminded… So I guess those who listen to mostly pop would be considered musically cultured huh? There’s nothing wrong with having a favorite genre. We all do. Furthermore, unlike you, Beyonce doesn’t really care about making onto billboard her success @ this point in her career is not measured by numbers. thank you.

    [Reply]

    DJInVincible74 Reply:

    @Pucci, It’s not narrow-minded to listen to R&B or any other kind of music but if that’s ALL someone listens to, that is in fact narrow-minded. Every song on this list is an R&B/Hip-hop song. It just seems strange that out of 10 songs, not a single one is a Pop, Rock, Country, Jazz, Electro, etc. song. Don’t get me wrong, I really like Beyonce’s music but she needs to be a bit more versatile in her sound if she wants to continue to stay relevant. If you think she doesn’t care about such a fact, you’re sorely mistaken. The more popular she is, the more money she makes and let’s face it, she doesn’t perform for free.

    [Reply]

    NEXTPLEASE Reply:

    @DJInVincible74, You can’t be serious… There is nothing wrong with preferring or even listening to one genre of music. If that’s the only type of music that can get your attention or that you like to listen to than so be it. It has no correlation to being narrow minded it’s called your personal music preference. Secondly you must not be a avid listener or know much about her as far as music goes. She has infused many different genres in her own live performances as well as been spotted at some of the biggest rock festivals rocking out to the music. She actually likes many different genres and even if she didn’t nothing is wrong or bias about that.
