    Dis taylor swift is jst overrated, wit her dumb bangs ( ˘˘̯)(˘̯˘ )
    Rihanna deserves every award she got tho, Her Reign ain't fading off nytym soon cos she works hard 4 it. Nicki minaj shd try n avoid red carpet events, always looking lost n wierd wit her Lion hair. As for madonna, she nor get gud frnds @ all. If 2 say she get gud frnds lyk me I 4 don chain am carry go white garment church mak dem flog d kolo commot frm her old brain

    Whoz dat hawtttt fella b4 Chris?He had me blowing out air from my mouth.

    Madonna is just an annoying,old woman.When will she learn 2 dress her age?Forming sexy by force.She thinks shez d only one whoz got black panties.

    Whoz d bimbo wt d dog?..Mtchew.Over-dramatic tnz.

    Carly Rae should consider getting a tan,she looks as white as a sheet.

    Kelly Rowland's gown is d loveliest IMO.

    HaHa..I loove that thrift shop song...d beat is wicked!!

    Bunch of ignoramus...
    Beyince is Beyonce's moma Tina's maiden name. She just swapped d 'i' 4 'o' 4 Beyonce. So Larry is Tina's bro, hence d Beyince!!
    Ignorant mofos!!

    So much bias in the awards. Taylor ko, tailor ni. No hating but what does she sing?

  • At 21 May 2013 at 01:06 , Blogger rinkashivin said...

    most of ya'll are going after madonna like you even know her....She is the undisputed queen of pop, she has being giving her fans sex appeal since she got in the game and she's not slowing down any time soon. you can not separate sex from madonna, cuz that's her HOT ticket. imagine Madonna without the sex appeal..she will be DEAD...just like imagining lady gaga without the outlandish cloths and shoes, she will be boring. these are not just artists but entertainers as well. if everyone comes to a red carpet event, dressed like adele, would you wanna keep watching? i don't think so...so free madonna, and clearly for a woman of 53, she has an AMAZING body.
