    @Laughing Hard, I think BET Could’ve done a better job with bleeping out the curse words, but then again she probably could’ve kept the cursing to a minimum, but I liked her performance.

    @Shade, the rapper who is non arguable the most successful female rapper of all time. The one who is touring all over the world, selling out arenas all over europe. I get people talking about her going pop or not but the things is, when she does need to rap, she does it better than anyone else out there. so stop trying to find something wrong with her

Beyonce and Solange were cute singing along while Jay Z and Kanye bobbed their heads and they all gave her a standing ovation. Nicki had the best performance of the night hands down.

  29. Sassy

    How are you going to confuse an artist who is getting “comfortable” on stage with having a “wonderful” performance. Wasn’t nothing wonderful about her performance. It’s just that she’s been on tour and is comfortable doing the routine.

    @Sassy, Remember, that’s your opinion just like the fact that she did wonderful is everyone else’s.

    For Once she actually give off some type of hood in her … && its worked …
    But I have to say she still ain’t a rapper, even if you get people bobbin’ off to your beats THAT just the beat sweetheart no real meaning … nothing that the hood can relate to in their modern life …
    But the performance was Nice && very entertaining

  54. Kyle

    I agree with most of these comments; this was one of her better performances. She sounded really good rapping to “Champion.” I hope she gets all this feedback and decides to NEVER do music like “Starships” and all that other Miley Cyrus-sounding garbage that is on her new album. I miss the old Nicki and this kind of brought the old her back.

    [Reply]

    Sarah Reply:

    @Kyle, Who is this “old nicki” you speak of, there is only ONE NICKI. Her true die hard fans appreciate “pop” nicki & “rap” nicki. quit trying to make them seperate; at the end of the day they are both HER. i really despise people like you, who don’t appreciate diversity. she has all types of fans to please NOT just her so called rap fans who turn on her once she goes outside the box. fuck off!

    This just proves to everyone that rap is one side of her. She can always go back. Let her show both sides of her.

  59. Trice

    Just wanted to say that nicki was good but her background dancer poppin gum and shirt straps falling down made the entire performance bad for me. Nicki was good but that chick with the red hair was blowing bubbles and just looked trashy.

    I agree with everypoint but 5.Considering that it’d be a hbirrole marketing decision to release it any latter than, I’m gonna say the 15th of December , anything later and they run risk of no-one buying it on acounts of they are most likely traveling for the holidays, and people don’t realy like buying stuff that late because of the “Last minute shopping” stigma, they asume the malls’ll be crazzy and choose to avoid it if posible, prefering to rest up with the family members they are most likely vecationing with. Now of corse this dosn’t include everyone, but alot of people do.In all likelyhood, Nintendo’ll proboly release it at a more opertune time like mid November at the peak of that early shopping period thats popular these days.
