    On sunday I decided, unwisely I might say, listen to Nicki’s rubbish. It was de worst 53 minutes of my life. Shit Pink Friday is so wack dt it makes John Cena’s You Can’t See Me to sound like Illmatic. Lol I wonder who’s buying that shit. Good Luck to Em, hope they give you Album Of The Year cos u deserve it but we all know Grammy Awards are biased when it comes to hip hop!

    WOW! Where the fuck they do this shit at?? Still not convinced. EVERYTHING about Nicki is a act (except her income) she has no real genuine character about herself. . like she forgot who she really is. Ready for someone real to be #1. She should have been a model or a pop artist . . . yall know she really a gay white boy(roman) ha lol
