  1. I guess five grand is helpful if you go to a community school. 😐

  2. This lady is always doing something positive! Granted Beyonce sounds better than Alicia vocally but I think ALicia is alot more talent and soul than Beyonce and not to mention prettier. Irreplaceable was the only #1 hit on her cd besides Ring the Alarm which hit #1 then immediately dropped to #4. Beyonce is overrated and people think she works hard but this is what I call working hard what ALicia is doing she is a positive black woman. I’m very proud of her. And I’m commenting on Beyonce in here b/c in that Irreplaceable crap thread there was no more room lol

  3. Go Alicia, That is wonderful. And I believe she was in africa helping with Aids research or something. She is doing some wonderful things, I guess that’s why she’s been laying low (aside from the Movie)
