    I still can’t believe the GRAMMYs set Janelle Monáe up to lose the only category she had a chance at winning.

    Yet they give her an Album of the Year nomination? It was a total slap in the face.

    Urban Contemporary rightfully should’ve been hers. Dirty Computer was a fantastic album.

    I feel it’s because of this trend they started with expanding the GF nominees to 8. In the two ceremonies, there have been albums like Dirty Computer and I Used to Know Her that should’ve been at least nominated for UC and R&B Album but for some odd reason weren’t.

    I don’t think Dirty Computer was so enigmatic to have been snubbed from UC.

    Drake is the most overrated artist/rapper ever. He is so boring and bland, I seriously can’t even listen to him anymore. Other artists have so much more charisma, energy and soul in them and are way more interesting. For example, the new generation of Roddy Ricch, Travis Scott, DaBaby, Lil Baby.

    I seriously can’t even believe the amount of streams he gets. His collection of old songs moved 250k units.

    I mean I don’t hate all of his singlesn his collabs are mostly good (Life Is Good and Sicko Mode) but his solo music is beyond disgusting. Toosie Slide, In My Feelings are horrible. And most of his singles are just plain boring and too simple.

    I agree. I thought I was the only who couldn’t get the hype over him. It baffles me he’s even considered a Rap God by some people. But I guess people will like what they like.

    This just made me realize that all the Drake songs I like are collabs. Except for Hotline Bling, that’s my guilty pleasure and it’s only because of that one scene from American Horror Story: Hotel.

    Tinashe made a comment today her music wrongfully not put under the “pop” label. What genre do you guys think her earlier work fell under?

    The Dixie Chicks have changed their name. They’re going simply as The Chicks now.

    Someone called Beyoncé out for using imagery of African origin in her visuals but never making tour stops in any African countries. What are your thoughts?

    At this point, it doesn’t matter.

    Beyoncé & JAY-Z have stolen from other artists for decades without any repercussions.

    Their fans honestly don’t care. It’s sad.

    Honey, Beyoncé sued again over “Black Effect,” a song from Everything Is Love:

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/17/entertainment/beyonce-jay-lawsuit-trnd/index.html

    Damn, this bitch gets sued all the fucking time.  It is sad fangirls do NOT give a fuck.

    In regards to Beyoncé using imagery of African origin in her visuals; she’s been stealing African culture for years.

    It was snubbed to give The Carters the win. They would’ve easily lost to Janelle so the panel passed her. Or at least that’s the most popular belief.

    Well there’s that. But I also like to believe Dirty Computer was like a “Paper Planes” that didn’t really fit in the genre categories but it was too damn good to be snubbed so they just gave it an AOTY nod.

    Dirty Computer really does blur genres though but that UC or rather Progressive R&B category is confused as fuck. I keep asking, how the hell were “Awaken, My Love!”Starboy and Free 6LACK nominated for the same genre?
