  • ayo

    such a loss, yo… i went to the concert in glasgow on tuesday, kanye was phenomenal, performed his heart out.

    that tour was the perfect distraction. from my heart, i worry about him now that it over and he has to go back to his life without his mama. i dont know him and he dont know me, but he is in my prayers, forreals.

  • the cool kid

  • Happy 2 B Nappy

    Please tell this man to stop wearing them Plastic man sunglasses. They look re-damn-diculous.

  • Happy 2 B Nappy

    Question…How is Ledisi on the Best New Artist?…I have been around and this is no new artist. This artist has been around with at least one other album that I can recall for well over 10 years.

  • Sun Goddess

    And I hope these grammy nods inspires Amy to forgo her nominated song’s lyrics and actually GO TO REHAB. Life is too short to go through it coked out, Amy. We wanna see you around, dear.

  • Sun Goddess

    We still do not know what that autospy report shall reveal. I know Kanye is still dealing with things in regards to his mama, and he’s being very humble about it, yet folks accuse his confidence of being arrogance. Keep your head up, Kanye. I’m praying for Jan Adams, too, cause I suspect people are threating him……

  • Tell me Something GOOD

    Go Ye, Amy, and eerbody else…

  • STR-8-UP

    EFF Kanye.

    Mad peeps on his dick cause he lost his moms – RIP – but strictly on the music tip this man is a cocky prick who throws tantrums when he loses awards.

    EFF Kayne.

  • Kigali

    Congrats to Kanye. I love that song Champion. However, I hope Common can win for best Rap album. I think they had a few good nods. Interesting to see Rhianna up there. Good for her.

  • Sun Goddess

    Hey Damon Jones! You see Kanye’s white teeth? You see how his gums are not big like yours? I can’t see Kanye’s man hairs on his chest, Damon! Now Kanye is an epitome of what women want! You are not! Take notes! You, Damon are arrogant, but Kanye is confident, cause it’s actually there! What’s actually there? Style! Class! Love for self and love for other people! Once again, take notes, Damon. And use your brain before you say taco meat is what every woman wants, ok Bivins wannabe?

    Your taco meat chest is poison….and you make women say the oppostie of “no homo”.

  • BULL

  • BULL

    ALSO he’s in good company with no talent AMY crackhoe
