    Who cares about billboard. Look at all the categories and tell me they seem good. Top social award? Lmao And then they categorize most of the artists wrong. That’s why the radio sucks today cause most it is complete garbage smh. No Kanye? No Kendrick? The hip hop and rock categories are scrust! And lorde aint rock and lady gaga isnt edm they’re pop smh Billboard award awards never count anyway

    WTF!?!?! Why is Pitbull nominated for all these rap awards?!?! Where’s A$AP Rocky? Where’s Kendrick? Where’s YG? Pitbull sucks! He shouldn’t even be nominated for a hip hop award. I’m too disappointed right now.
