Beyonce has fallen off so badly in the past 6 months that even pop singer Rihanna still gets more shine than her despite the fact her latest CD didn’t sell as well as expected.

Still, NARAS saw fit to Bless Beyonce with 10 Grammy nods — while the legendary Diva Whitney Houston got none, zero, zilch!

The folks overseeing the Grammy Awards at the Academy couldn’t even come up with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Whitney to show some respect? This is a glaring oversight.

Even the dreadful rapper Drake got a Grammy nod for ‘Best Rap Song’ for that horrible track “Best I Ever Had”. Are you kidding me?

Obviously there is some foul play at work here. Some under the table pay offs or back room dealings or something.

Whitney’s album ‘I Look To You’ has been certified Platinum by the RIAA, meaning she sold over 1 million copies of her comeback album. I would rather listen to Whitney than Beyonce’s screeching any day!

Can we get a recount of the ballots?

    Sorry to say but I like Beyonce and happy for her all her success…minus her acting :lolsign:

  • Thando

    When the time comes we shall see the fall of Beyonce and be in awe. It’s always a bad sign when things come too easy and abnormally fast. Who ever is giving them to her will demand more than she can give….. I mean, really the ultimate sacrifice is life, right. I do not envy her one bit. At least I am care free and happy with my man even though we live on a salary…

    As for Whitney, she is strong in faith and she knows that her battle is not with Beyonce.

  • Mahogany03

    Dang! Didn’t Whitney set her album release date so she could be nominated for next year’s Grammys?! They coulda at least gave her 3 nominations.

    Bey betta not win 8 Grammys…MJ and Carlos Santana need to keep their record.

  • whyohwhy

    Beyonce deserved every nom she got, stop hatin, she got talent and more!

    ….And ONLY Sandra Rose thinks Beyonce has fallen off.

    No one who really matters seems to think that.

    Falling off ain’t selling out stadiums around the world.

    And just because Whitney (who i ADORE) has a DECENT comeback album (yes we’re all excited she could sing a variety of songs with half a voice still intact) doesn’t make it automatically Grammy worthy.

    The haters STAY mad at Beyonce’!! I see why.. She stay killin the game and YALL CANT TAKE HER…

    Well I’m not surprised. This industry done changed far from what it used to be. Not that Bey don’t deserve some nods but my goodness Whitney made a strong comeback and did very well. I don’t get this.

  • cjgrantjr

    And WHERE does Rihanna get more shine than Beyonce????????

    Just because YOU say it SR DOES NOT make it so..

    Yes it does. Whitney was on da crack pipe. She turned her life around. And as you said “she could sing a variety of songs with half a voice still intact”. All dat is grammy nod worthy to me. :notworthy:

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    If Pink and Drake can earn Grammy nominations with that garbage they put out, then Whitney should have gotten one.

    Although I am tired of Beyonce lol she deserves it. She works hard so hey congrats Bey!

    Whitney definitely deserves it. The Grammys are beginning to be like your average award show – full of pop stars and no real TALENT.

    Sidenote: Just found out that my bish Diana Ross has NEVER won a Grammy…that has got to be FALSE!

    That Drake dude is nowhere near imaginarily attractive at all.

    Something about his face just looks so off, and I have a really hard time even glancing at the dude.

    Then, him jumping from a Degrassi to Young Money……geeesh!

  • The Divine Ms. K

    I thought Whitney’s record wasn’t released in time for this year’s nominations?

    Either way, Beyonce worked hard and she is nowhere NEAR falling off Sandra, and you know this. lol

    And saying Rihanna’s cd didn’t do as well as expected is a GROSS understatement, considering it was priced at $.99.

  • chase

    I can’t believe they did not give Whitney a nomination.. B got 10, wow, that is a lot…her album was good but not 10 nominations good… I like me some pink too, so I am happy for her..

    I’m a newbie and normally I don’t agree with anything Sandra says but this time… OMFG! I’m am SOOOO with you! Whitney is my GIRL!!! Whitney is the best singer to have EVER (yes I said EVER) put their hands on a microphone. She pushed her album back one day *JUST* to beunder the cutoff date for the Grammy’s. They planned for this! They wanted her to take the stage, sing her FACE off and walk off with an armfull of gold like she dserves. But she gets snubbed!! In real life tho Grammy committee? Really? Not even ONE nod? Not even a BS nod like ‘Best earrings on an album cover – female’ Nothing! In real life! I feel like I’m being punked. Where the hell is Ashton! This is some pure fraggleknacle bull!

  • jazi65

    How dare they snub Whitney! Bey’s album(s) was mediocre compare to nippy’s & she’s been out the game for a minute. She may win a few awards but I think Taylor is gonna be the big winner again, and rightfully so.

  • CivilEngineer

    Who works harder than her or had a bigger single this year? How many did Taylor Swift get? It’s sad to say but if anybody’s faded away it’s Whitney. :(

    The Grammy’s used to be more “exclusive” to me, like not just anyone could get nominated. Now it’s just like all of the other awards shows, based on popularity and not the music.
    Not a Beyonce hater, but 10 nominations?? I wasn’t that impressed with she put out this past year.
    Glad Maxwell got nominated though!

  • cjgrantjr

    @ #13 Sandra, I do agree with you on that. No arguments from me!

  • Mr.KappaMan2K5

    Hell… I didn’t even know who the hell Taylor Swift was until Kayne sucker punched her. Kayne was the *best* thing that could have happened to her. Got all these award shows feelign sorry for her, and makes us want to turn in HOPING that Kayne wobbles his drunk ass back in stage again talking about “I’m happy for you but…”

  • JustSayin

    Good for NARAS!! While I’m happy Whitney is back and the project may have been certified platinum..The project is mediocre at best. I’m sick of people being rewarded/applauded for work they have done in the past during current award season (ie MJ receiving 4 AMA’s…WTF?!?!)..

    Lifetime achievement award?…Really?…Let’s see how long she can stay sober before we go there..

    However Beyonce will win for HALO cause she sung the HELL out of the DEVILS song!

  • CivilEngineer

    I hope she only wins a couple…I can see the comments now: Matthew pulled all the strings he could; the devil couldn’t let her lose; her stans took over the Grammy’s, etc. :lol: I bet she thanks God in her acceptance speech, you know just for attention right? :shrugs:

  • MissJacksonifunasty

    Uh, no Sandra…..
    Beyonce gets on my nerves too, but she hasn’t by any means “fallen off”. And as for Whit, I enjoy a good comeback every now and then, but be real. She tore up her voice with that crack rock–and u think she should be awarded for it?? The only reward she deserves is her sobriety and I hope she takes that more serious than she did her singing career. At least Beyonce cares about her craft and continuously works to improve it. Say what u want about her but the girl is a workaholic and she tries to put out the best performance for her fans. Whit said F@#%& her fans, and still wants them to pay top dollar to listen to her studio manufactured mediocre voice. “Not I” said the cat.

  • kdillon

    Beyonce’s album isnt even the best selling of the year, for someone of her caliber she should have done better with her sales. Sinlge Ladies video is a rip off of Bob Fosse & Gwen’s Mexican Breakfast, so Beyonce is doing nothing new or creative. Beyonce is full of kiddie tranny jingles, im sorry.. not worth a Grammy.

  • tbrown

    Beyonce is killing the game because she has NO COMPETITION!!! Really! She just doesn’t! LOL. Her record wasn’t the best. She had a few hits that were monsters and in my opinion worthy of ‘Grammy’ but for the most part that record was just, no, no, no.

    I give credit where it’s due. She’s a hard worker. Folks act like she’s doing God’s work and therefore everything she touches is automatically the best. Videophone is such a horrid song and so is that Diva mess. I freakin HATED the I Am..Sasha side of her album (w/ the exception of Sweet Dreams). But again congrats to her and ALL the nominees INCLUDING MAXWELL!!! Best song of the year?!?!?!?! OH MY GOD I’d love for him to win that award! :)

  • Reese

    Not a Beyonce fan but she’s talented and works hard. Whitney’s comback was lackluster to me. I havn’t heard one song that really moved me. I’ll stick to the underground soul artists….

  • Lady_L

    wow.. i love the hate Beyonce it is so funny.. I am so happy for her! as well as some others that were nominated. LOOOVE Whitney to death was playing her CD this morning in the car. Beyonce is a SUPERSTAR period! she works hard…what is the problem?? if the is MAry J , i wonder would people be treating Mary the same way.@cjgrantjr I see we are always on the same page. Sandra Bey must have done something so awful to you, you display so much hate for her it’s scary.

  • KrayZKat

    Thank GOD I grew up during the 70s/80s when REAL music was still playing. I like only a few of Bey’s songs, but that’s it. Give me Chaka, Jill, India, old Whitney, Natalie and nem anyday over the crap that’s out today.

  • KrayZKat

    Oh, and I forgot LeToya L. Lady Love is the only current music I’ve downloaded in ages.

  • Musiqal1

    I think she deserves it. I Am..Sasha Fierce in my little opinion was a great album to me. It was different, and I couldn’t see any other R&B chick out there doing songs like she did on this album. I like the I AM side better than the Sasha Fierce side also. But she’s not guaranteed to win all of them IF any. India.Arie got 7 nominations one year and won ZILCH! So you never know how it will turn out

  • therapist1911

    People stay stating “in my opinion” but I hate to tell you, your opinion only matters when it comes to blogs and cnversing with your friends. Those opinions that matter felt she deserved to be recognized for 10 Grammy nominations.

    Why so surprised? Homegirl been getting Grammy’s since she was a teenager.

    But like Daisy stated….TAYLOR will take them home this year. THank you Kanye!!!

    Whitney’s album was after the grammy deadline :coffee:

  • http://myspace.com/rayne215 spongebobfan

    Beyonce is a great artist, one would have to blind and deaf to deny the girls talent….that said… her last album was overrated… Single ladies, that simple azz song (and copied unoriginal video) is trash… Catchy , but trash..only song she had with any substance was Halo… now Dangerously in Love..was a good album straight through and BDay had more songs… but overall, i dont believe shes worthy of all that……

  • onlinefan

    i agree the grammy’s are not what they used to be. it used to be a big deal to get a grammy nomination and put you in elite status. but this looks like they just pulled names out a hat and said put them on the ballot.

    i too thought they moved up Whitney’s album so it would fit the grammy timeline.

    i like drake and i think he’s a cutie. but i don’t think he should be nominated for a grammy when he doesn’t have an actual album out. that’s just not right.

    i think beyonce should get record or song of the year- whichever category it was for single ladies. i don’t know enough about taylor swift to have an opinion on her nominations. but i wonder if people are going out of their way to put her on ballots to get back at kanye embarrasing her.
