    Not Fair at all, KC(didn’t even make the list)

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    NEARLY YOUR WHOLE LIST IS A JOKE! I WILL GIVE RIHANNA HER PROPS SHE MADE SOME SIGNIFICANT MOVES IN 2008, SOLANGE FOR UNDERRATED ARTIST IS A GO AS WELL. SOME OF YOUR CHOICES ARE VERY QUESTIONABLE AT THE LEAST. I SEE YOU LOVE THE “BAJAN BEYONCE” LOOK.

  • prynsexxx

    Rihanna looks like a Tyra Banks wannabe. I still like her song Rehab…….other than that boooooooooooooooooooooo!

  • Daisy

    @Munch how can RiRi be the Bajan Beyawnce when she has no talent? Get it RiRi!!!!!!!!!!

    I think you can have whatever you like was a bigger single than live your life although I like them both.

    Shoutout to K Co!

    Puffy keep doing your thang in 09.

    Usher re group and try it again boo! Still have love for ya!

  • Daisy

    @Prynn Tyra wishes she was that pretty.

  • Daisy

    Last but not least shoutout to any and everybody who will be in DC/MD Jan 20th to be a part of history!!!

    Team Barack all day every day!!!

  • Charles

    YES!!!!!

    “The Please Go Sit Cho Azz Down Somewhere Award:
    BeYAWNsay, Jay Z, Ciara, 50 Cent and Sean Combs (no explanation necessary)”

    CIARA BIG TIME!!!!

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    I DIDN’T SAY THAT DAISY! THAT IS WHAT SHE WAS CALLED WHEN SHE FIRST CAME OUT, GOOGLE IT, YOU’LL SEE IT FOR YOURSELF. RIHANNA IS A STUDIO SINGER ALL DAY, AND PERFORMS LIVE LIKE A ROCK. THEY TRIED TO MODEL HER AFTER BEYONCE, IT IS NOTED, THAT IS WHY I SAID THAT, EVERY PHOTO BEFORE THE HAIRCUT, YOU CAN SEE IT. SOME JOURNALISTS STILL CALL RIHANNA THAT.

  • Daisy

    I never agreed with all that nonsense. Ppl love to talk and compare. Lil Miss Sunshine was never trying to be the next B. Just something to keep drama going.

  • ReadTheBlog

    Wow…I will never get those 2 minutes back :-(

  • Daisy

    I believe at this point ppl can let all that go anyway seeing how she made her own lane and took over the road for a min. in 2008

  • Charles

    SANDRA

    the biggest FLOP was ciara LOL you should chaneg that :) remember ciara only went to #88 with controversy a nude vibe cover publicity and a T-pain feature

    Thats a FLOP!!!

  • Daisy

    @Read you read slow..2mins

  • Daisy

    @Charles keep on defending Brandy by any means necessary..LOL I aint mad at cha

  • CaramelDrop

    the only TRUE awards listed:

    Underrated Artist Of The Year Award:
    Solange (Her album was dope) – I HATE FOX FOR THE PHUCKKERY THEY PUT ON SOLANGE’S DEBUT! YES AUNTIE THE ALBUM WAS DOPE AND COMING FROM BEY’S # 2 STAN SOLE- ANGEL AND THE HADLEY STREET DREAMS WAS 50 MILLION TIMES BETTER THAN I AM AND SASHA FIERCE COMBINED

    The biggest FARCE award listed:

    Most Overrated of the Year Award:

    Barack Hussein Obama – WE ALL KNOW THIS SHOULD HAVE GONE TO RHIANNA

  • goat76

    And the Award for the Best Pu ss y goes to………Rihanna

    If it was up to Sandra…..

  • Daisy

    @Carmel RiRi is no more overated to you than Beywance and Sasha fierce is to me..lol

  • sexyma078

    Sandra sandra sandra….ok I will give you (robyn)Rihanna all day…she did her thing and weather we like it or not the industry is not about “talent” as is is about marketability…i mean Modanna couldn’t sang her way out of a paper bag but she did brand herself anf has been able to constantly change with the times….Rihanna and Beyonce are to young in their careers to know if they will be as fortunate…But to say that Bey (and Jay) for that matter need to sit down is hilarious…love em or leave them they have both done well with their craft and have MANY FANS that would disagree with you….AND YOU KNOW YOU DEAD WRONG FOR THE OBAMA PICK….WHY DO YOU HATE HIM SO MUCH OVERRATED THAT MAN (AND THE PEOPLE THAT VOTED FOR HIM) HAS DONE MORE FOR THIS COUNTRY WHITE BLACK OR OTHERWISE Remember most of your readers are here becuase we were forced to not because we chose to…to see a black man living in the same house that was built by slaves is a beautiful thing and as a decendent of those people you should act BETTER!!!!! Still love your blog though HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

  • Daisy

    @Goat you really took it there..lol

  • Daisy

    @sexy thank you Madonna nor Brittany can sing and their fans dont seem to mind that. RiRi is just doing what they do and im not mad at her.

  • Shauny

    Sandra,

    I agree with some but ALOT of side eyeing with your choices.

    I agree with Female artist, Male artist, best video and the please go sit cha azz down but that’s where it ends. I wouldn’t call KC’s CD a hip hop one but…o.k

    I have to comment on the Underrated artist. Trey Songz all day long (boy is talented)

    Paper Trail is a nice CD but The Carter III and American Gangster are better CDs. T.I gets the bronze IMO

    Also Akon being the best R&B artist is the biggest joke. That honor goes to Ne-Yo

    My most overrated Artist would be Keri Hilson

  • iscream

    Single Ladies is a hawt song.

    Akon is R&B now? That award should’ve gone to Neyo hands down.

    Most over rated artist… Sasha Fierce.

    Jump off of the year should go to that girl who sued Shaq. @ least she made headlines.

  • CaramelDrop

    The only talent Rhianna has is she can let people DRESS THE SH!T out of her – I will giver her that

    Beyonce is the ish…overated too but the ish nonetheless.

  • Naima

    Keri Hilson? Still no album, still no hit song. How is she the best new artists. She is like a Rihanna w/o the hits, she is known for her fashion

  • ELove

    I’m no Bey fan BUT I doubt Very Seriously if her song was the WORST single (I’m BEING serious here too)
    @goat (Let’s discuss YOUR award)
    Do you really think that Rhi-Rhi PUSS is better than…
    Bey or A-Keys??? I’m thinking of others as I type LOL ;-)

  • Shauny

    I didn’t notice Bey and Jay on the sit down list….o.k Bey is borderline there but definately not Jay. 50, Ciara, YUNG BERG, and Puffy….those are my picks

  • sexyma078

    @shaunty

    I’m give Young Berg on the Sit yo Azz down for you cant sit for days AWARD since he stays taking a beating

  • ELove

    And T.I. FIRST single (IF ANY) should be single of the year…
    And I KNOW there is a better collaboration THAN the one you chose… THINK anything w/ Lil Wayne, T-Pain or Kanye ;-)

  • missamerica

    I think MOST OVERRATED should have been a tie and went to Rihanna as well. The girl does nothing, but she has a great image.

    Barack will have the right team around him to make him look good, so he will live up to the hype. It doesn’t help that Israel decided to go nuclear on the Gaza Strip and kill innocent people. That just makes more people hate the U.S. even more and more than likely Barack will be blamed somehow despite that they’ve been fighting for generations.

    Most All-Around Fake Award Usher and Sean Combs, you hit it right on the nose. Puff promotes Ciroc like its Colt 45. I have never seen liquor get hawked like beer or a malt beverage. He needs to find something real to do in 2009 besides bitch. Diddy sucks, I want Puffy back. Start from scratch. Usher should go hang out with Will Smith and Tom Cruise at I Love My Fans Camp. Learn how to interact with the media and the public, and things will be back on the up and up.

    Since when is Keyshia Cole a Hip Hop Artist? Maybe make it a Hip Hip Generation Artist award or Hip Hop Soul award. I know she deserves a Come Up Award because she’s really starting to come into her own.

  • Teachturn

    Biggest Hater of the Year—Sandra Rose

  • goat76

    @ E-love………..I’m going wit A Keys…..I don’t know why, but I’m going wit her………It made Swizz beat leave his wife…..

    And the Award For Best Smelling Fart & Toe Jam combined goes to………Rhianna………

  • ELove

    @goat
    I’m wit you on that!!!
    My reason IS her PUSS hasn’t been nearly as BEAT-ON as…
    Rhi-Rhi and Bey-Baby LMAO ;-)

  • goat76

    @Elove….That was hard to choose from for me…..

  • CaramelDrop

    Goat! You’re a “nasty goat”

    Lmao @ “And the Award For Best Smelling Fart & Toe Jam combined goes to………Rhianna………

  • ELove

    @goat
    BEING completely honest and not worrying about the dreaded…
    tread & wear-n-tear factor (SOME haves that Snapper)
    I’ll F-U-C-K Bey-Baby SILLY !!!!! (Real Talk) ;-)

  • Terry .W

    I agree about solange…her album is the DOPEST!

  • BayArea

    A great laugh to start the New Year off right!

    Best new Artist: Keri Hilson. I know what she looks like (from all the blogs) but, what does she sing again? I’m not sure her music gets played out here in the Bay.

    Somebody please hum me a tune.

    What about Neyo Sandra. I’ll pick him as Best R&B male over Akon any day!

  • ELove

    @BayArea
    Can’t help you there… They don’t play her in the CHI either

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    ELove Says:

    @goat
    I’m wit you on that!!!
    My reason IS her PUSS hasn’t been nearly as BEAT-ON as…
    Rhi-Rhi and Bey-Baby LMAO

    E-LOVE WERE YOU AWARE THAT ALICIA KEYS HAS IN FACT BEEN WITH CRUCIAL KEYS FOR YEARS! “CRUCIAL BE BEATING IT LIKE A COP!”

  • Mississippi16

    @ munchos… I think it’s a cover. Just don’t seem to be her type.

  • ELove

    @MUNCH
    To add to Miss..16 comment…
    I HEARD He(Crucial Keys) beats it LIKE (Wait for it…)
    CASPER The Friendly Ghost !!! (Real Talk) LMAO :-0

  • Mississippi16

    Honorable mention for Sitcho Azz Down….

    Sarah Palin and John McCain

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    Ne-Yo would have gotten BEST R&B hands down, but I can’t forgive his ignorant statement about light skin babies. Am I wrong for that?

  • Mississippi16

    @ ELOVE…
    I was gonna say he seem to soft to really beat it up but i thought that was a little too much.

  • Mississippi16

    @ Sandra… Your right.

    Also, Year Of The Gentlemen was overal mediocre. Independent and Closer are great because of the performance he put behind the music but the CD was lackluster to me.

  • starr

    I differ with some of yours lol

    Best new artist: Jazmin Sullivan
    Best male r & B: neyo (i havent’ forgiven for the light skinned thing either)
    Most played out artist: beyawnce (the over rexposure is gonna be the undoing of her career)
    Flop of the year: kanye (expectations were much higher)

  • teecee

    this went about how i expected it to go… im sure they will all send you a check for the publicity. lol

  • alexander

    this website, like the keyshia cole show is only good for laughs…how the hell does riyannah (i’m sure i spelled it wrong) win everything? i agree with the jazmine awards though. her album is joint fa sho…and her need you bad video is better than reeyawna’s in my opinon. i actually like the song’s kayne has put out.

  • http://taylordior.com taylordior

    I love rihanna! beautiful, talented, and hot songs!!! KC definitely belonged somewhere tho…

  • Shauny

    From what I hear Alicia is that undercover chick that steals your man so I’m betting she has more….lays than both Rhi Rhi and Bey.

    She sure didn’t make Swizzy wait a year before she let him hit it.

  • Bubbles

    This list is the worst of 2008!

    The worst.

  • Mississippi16

    Happy New Year Everyone!!!! I’m out!

  • Daisy

    As an Akeys stan I dont believe the gay or homewrecker rumors at all.

  • Daisy

    @Taylor thank you for your real talk.

    @Carmel B is not the ish to me never has been. She is a great entertainer but not the best (singer,actress or dancer, or looking) There were many before her and will be many after her.

  • JustSaying

    How did Rhianna win anything besides she can dress her ass off.

    I agree that Solage was underrated.

    Oh, I am not a B fan but I like ‘Put a Ring On It’.

  • Daisy

    @Just I like that song as well and a few others she has put out. I loved me some DC thought. It was RiRis year like it or not..lol She has hot songs and a great look.

  • http://myspace.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    wow nikki jump off of the year…i still got love for you lol

  • Lisa

    I am not surprised by your list at all. Anyone that reads your blog on the regular know what time it is.
    I think Rhianna had the jams and her style is fierce, but if she wants to remain relevant she betta start taking some dance classes or learn something about stage presence. I think Rhianna and Britney Spears are very manufactured. Anyay…I head about that Nikki chick and it wasn’t good.

  • http://myspace.com/millyly milly

    Sandra…ima need you to make a better list next year lol cuz you a fool for this one..Rhianna??? Best artist of the year?? seriously??

  • kenyakai

    Does this Nikki Nicole person have anything to do with the T.I./Tiny “situation”? I noticed that Tiny’s name is listed under the filed under section, but she’s not mentioned in the post.

  • Daisy

    @Lisa and I have always felt B was very manufactured I have always said that about her.

  • mizzdallas

    Sandra says:Flop of the Year Award:
    Brandy – Human (Sorry, Charles)

    No biggest flop Oh no,no,no that named should be changed to Ciara, her album still wont go platnium in 09′. Keri Hilson hasnt even came out with an album but guess what when she do it will FLOP, Brandy still has more millions than Ciara or Funky azz Keri Hilson and KeyCO… Take that, Take that ** Diddy voice **.

    And oh yeah Happy New Year!

  • mizzdallas

    @Bird

    Now bird I like your list and all with the inception of:

    Worst Single Of The Year Award:
    Brandy – Whatever that song was she released.

    Right here is my ish…Real music Real talent

  • candycane

    Akon is a beautiful as he could be, but does he sing R&B? The more ish I hear from him, the more I dont really care for him. His songs are more pop, still gorgeous though.

    Rihanna did her thing this year, just because I’m not a big fan, I’ll still give her props.

    Cant tell you one Brittany Spears song, but she did have a helluva come back, and I was glad to see it. Now if only WHitney Houston can come back.

    YAYYYYYYYYYYYY Jazzy, I really enjoy that cd. Keri Hilson…… eh not so much. I HATED that dayum energy song.

  • Shauny

    Hey, why isn’t Kelly Rowland the biggest flop of 08? Has her CD even went gold yet? I remember her first week sales being like 88k (that had to heard since LeToya almost doubled that amoount).

    I agree that Cassie is the biggest jumpoff. I also think Puffy BEEN hitting that since her teen years. They just waited until she was a bit older before they acknowledged their relationship. He’s on the same level as R Kelly because I think he hit Aubrey in Season 1 and there was a rumor that he was involved with one of those girls from his first all girl group and they were in their late teens

  • bobblekins

    Wow SR. You hate on Obama so much, it’s really strange. You say he’s the most over-rated, but he’s only the THIRD black senator in this country since Reconstruction. He won the election against a bigoted, inexperienced, do-nothin’ fake-wife of an ex-president. That’s under-achieving to you? Or you liked Bush or something? McCain? Hmmmm.

    But your lady wood for Rihanna is cute. I think it’s dope that you’re willing to almost come out of the closet. Good on you for that. There’s not many sistahs out there who will declare their undying love for another woman publicly. So it’s you and Wanda Sykes, baybay! I’m serious. I love you for that!

    Did Rhianna make Forbes 2008 list???
