    May have been hits, but none of them are classics.
    Some of these artists are so concerned on being # 1 on billboard they forgot to make music that is classic.

    @Kristopher_TM, “queen” is being used way too loosely these days.

    [Reply]

    Ray Reply:

    @teezy, shes the most successful female rapper in the last decade. She’s a diverse artist, an actress and she writes her own lyrics, & songs. Lil Kim doesn’t write her own lyrics. Her ghost writer contract surfaced. An I ring up lil Kim because I know your mostly likely a fan of Kim’s. But let’s get real if you dont like nicki minaj why are you looking for her?

    @Lea, Who’s gassing her? She’s had the most sold albums in one week. 40 songs that have been on the hot 100 on billboard more songs charted than any other female rapper. 1 st female rapper to perform at the super bowl, first female rapper to perform solo at the Grammys, first female rapper to get the female rising star award from bill board. Ain’t no one gassin her these are facts. & again if you don’t like her why is your bitch ass looking her up you fucking cunt.

    @make cents, so what she got on the all stars?? that doesn’t take away from the fact that she under-performed…AGAIN!! what’s ur point? she may get big gigs for now but if she keeps givin us garbage then people will get tired and them big gigs will slowly fade away…

    I liked Nicki but she’s slowly losing my interest…I honestly can’t take her seriously anymore…her performances have been looking VERY lack-luster and SLOPPY! (her stiffness, vocals, she was singing/rapping way off beat for a min, her stamina looks low, and omg that ‘wig movement’ at the end!) Her music took a complete U-turn and it’s probably gonna get old sooner than u think…I checked this post with no high expectations, but still hoping to see some type of improvement…unfortunately, I feel like this was no better than that failure of a performance at the Grammys. I’m not hating on Nicki, but I call it like it is and I’ll admit when I think something is terrible. And i don’t understand why some of u always have to bring up Kim when someone criticizes Nicki…ain’t nobody talkin bout Kim…we talkin bout how terrible THIS performance was…everyone’s entitled to their opinion so no one should slander another for being honest.

    @SdotB, You are right people are entitled their opinions, but I think you are wrong. Her performances have gotten a lot better. To me, she is a lot more consistent and able to give full energy throughout the show. Again, you are entitled to your opinion, so I have to respect it.

    [Reply]

    SdotB Reply:

    @JP, that’s cool and that’s ur opinion…maybe my standards of quality are different than urs…it seems nowadays people just settle for less when it comes to talent, and that’s why music has been caught in a downhill spiral. It seems like once an artist becomes popular, and they have an established fanbase, they start doing whatever, showing less effort in their music and performances, because they know they don’t have to work as hard as they did before, and their loyal fans will continue to support. This is why lots of artists don’t last long! At some point the gimmicks get old and people start to get tired. I’m starting to think that Nicki can potentially fall into this category b/c she’s already dissappointing a lot of her urban/hip-hop fans. Those are the fans who made her who she is, and now it’s like a slap in the face that she’s making a complete change. Instead of broadening her fanbase, it seems like she’s almost COMPLETELY changing it! I guess we’ll have to wait and see how this next album does and how long it will last. Hopefully she can prove us wrong.

    Im suprised how short-sighted her fans are. This performance perfectly proves that she CAN rap but she CANNOT sing live. She didnt sing. She didnt even tried to imitate that shes was trying to sing. She should stick to rapping and perfecting her skill and art. I dont understand why she persists on making pop-sing-along music if she cant deliver it. It too early for her to sing.

If you don’t understand her evolution you don’t matter, you never did. you want her old shit, buy her old mixtapes.

All of her performances have been horrible from the beginning and the only thing she can say she invented was lip-rapping cause she was really the first to do that lol.
