    @Truth, this is Europe, not America. Yall don’t live in Europe, therefore your opinions are null & void. You don’t know their taste in music.

    @Truth, Beyonce doesn’t deserve to be on this list, so idk why you are disgusted. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan, she isn’t really doing anything lately to be here nor has she had a major hit off of her last album. so stop the bias, and be happy for those who deserve it.

    @Neusia Celia, Why don’t you go back tot he 90s and do us all a favor. Leave the EMA’s to those that deserve it. Still working hard, putting hits out consistently, and topping lists.

    Oh bitches, please. We Europeans know what good music is.

    [Reply]

    wow Reply:

    @mumi, Europe definitely does. I agree. Americans are shit when it comes to music. Tbh most of you are bashing this list only because Rihanna has the most nominations. The girl has done a lot with We found love being a monster hit. Let her get what she rightfully deserves. Gaga has done nothing to be up there not has Beyonce so stop bringing them up.

  22. truth TELLER

    america has no right to say “someone doesn’t know music”. Y’all the same fuckers who made Gangham style a popular song as well as Friday and Party rock and dumb shit like that. The most talented legends come from europe. All yall really got is micheal jackson and whitney. Idk why y’all can’t just congradulate those whoa re up there. Bringing up Beyonce and Gaga, they aren’t doing anything. Beyhive and Monsters need to exit. I’m happy for Rita, Rihanna Katy Nicki etc etc. The hate on these people is disgusting because the majority of you dance to their music and listen to it on the radio. Cut the shit.

  23. Honest

    I think people who say rihanna is talentless annoy me now. Get rid of the bandwagon opinion already.
    I used to hate Rihanna off of others opinions until I went on youtube to see why everyone hates on her so much. And Yeah I did find performances where she didn’t do well, but I also found performances where she sang her songs well Idk why people continue to bash her. The girl can DRESS, can DESIGN clothes well, produced her OWN SHOW in the UK, and I watched Battleship and I must say she is a GOOD actor. So why is it that people bash her . I def am not “navy”, but i’m open minded and fair. Rihanna doesn’t deserve all the insults you throw at her, being that she works her ass off.
    When I actually stop being a dickrider using the same insults and opinions formulated by others and found shit out for myself I was utterly surprised at how much there is to Rihanna. I commend her for all her nominations. I’m happy for her. It’s a difference if you’re not a fan of pop music, but to just slander her maliciously is petty.
