    @Kate, she may not be your cup of tea but she’s talented. That’s just a fact. She may be guilty of not always using her talent to her full capacity at times but she’s talented. Wish she’d realize how talented she is tho. Fall back from the business side a little and devote a little more to the creative and intellectual side tho. She’s no dummy. It takes brains to act ditzy. She’s not the smartest but no dim cookie is Ms. Minaj.

    @Zack, they are all rap artist. They aren’t hip hop artist. Although they make pop music, they are definitely rapping over those pop records

    Gangnam Style was a dance & rap song? That’s how you know the nominations are a joke this year.

    [Reply]

    ., Reply:

    @Jay-Me, I think ppl are mixing up the meaning of Rap and Hiphop. Psy makes dance and pop music, not hip hop music. Although he doesn’t make hip hop music he is rapping over the pop and dance records. So it makes sense that he is nominated in both

    @My name is oo, Bitch plz! Go hop on itunes and save The Re-Up. I’m simply saying the headlining title is about Rihanna but the Barbs came on here first and in droves stating Nicki facts. Im happy for her. She has accomplished alot and she is very smart about marketing herself and her brand. BUT the Barb attack made ur fave seem desperate for recognition!

    no nomination for Miguel and Brandy on the r&b albums?

    what a joke, lol

    Billboard just copy and past previous years nominations, it seems. pretty pathetic and disrespectul to the other artists releasing music, and great one

    [Reply]

    Andy Reply:

    @A, nominations are based on sales, airplay and steam. Your favs can have all the talent of the world but they aren’t selling/interesting/popular as the others.

    @MusicJunkie, if she had no talent i dont think she would have so many nominations AGAIN!!! she still sells out shows, still gets grammys, and critics like the depth of her music but you as a hater like others never mention that do you?

    Miguel should have been nominated and Bruno mars owned the charts so he deserved more but whatever floats there boat don’t watch it anyways

    [Reply]

  16. .,

    Dont see why people are upset about the nominations. It is the “Billboard Awards”. The nominees are based on Billboard success,not the actual quality of the person’s music. These nominees are 100% accurate

    I only hope Chris doesnt go as Rihanna’s little lap dog, he obviously didnt have a great year like some of these mainstream artists…he should focus on promoting his upcoming album, he could use the Today Show, Dancing with the stars, Jimmy kimmel, David letterman.
    These awards need him more then he needs them, at least I can understand why he has 1 nomination but it doesnt mean he should go for stupid ratings.

    I did not watch AMA,MTV VMA last year and seeing his line up I will pass this year too…its encouraging knowing the VMA’s had 2-3 million viewers more then 50% decrease :)

    @CBE, “These awards need him more then he needs them”

    LMAOOO! You delusional child. If that was the case, which it isn’t, Chris would have already been on Kimmel and Letterman, but he wasn’t, because a- no one likes him, and b- no one cares about whatever tripe he is trying to push.

    You better be counting your blessing Rihanna, being the flawless human being she is, had the heart to take him back. Otherwise, he’d still be in the gutter begging for scraps.

    susan Reply:

    @Cranberry, They always nominate CB to get him to perform or show up for ratings. CB ran 2011 R & B charts and in 2012 he was name Billboard R & B artist of the year, so he doesn’t need Rihanna. Cb doesn’t perform on the talk show because they will ask him about his personal life instead of his music.
