  1. CIARA IS OFFICIALLY THE BEST. CIARA WILL BE NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR IN 2008. B E T PLAYED HER FOR RATING. THE ONLY REASON CIARA DIDN’T WIN IS B E T ISN’T READY TO DETHRONE BEYONCE

  2. Why must Beyonce be dethroned? Can 2 Black women not exist in music at the same time? Janet didn’t dethrone Whitney. They both ruled the charts at the same time selling millions of records. We need to get out of this way of thinking that says one sista must be tarnished in order for another to shine. :thumbsup:

  3. Kelly’s performance on Jimmy Kimmel the day after the BET awards was hot! and beyonce face and head looks so big in that 1st pic 😆

  4. Beyonce’s whole darn body looks big in those pics. It’s amazing how she can go from looking slender to almost looking like a pig in different clothes. That dress she wears in all her concerts is a definite no no.

  5. Beyonce is as beautiful as ever and Ciara looks great too – Awesome dance ability :thumbsup:

  6. Years ago when Beyonce first hit the scene with Destiny’s Child I had no idea she would go on to become such a powerful performer. I cannot even hate on this woman’s game. She is a amazing performer who keeps you glued to the screen when she is on it. More power to her :brownsista:

  7. CIARA WILL BE NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR IN 2008.

    Unless she’s acting you must be mistaken. Anyway if I wasn’t so busy I would of went. I know each was off the chain. Hopefully next year.

  8. STEPHANIE I AGREE WITH YOU WHOLE HEARTLY. B E T IS THE ONE DIVIDING OUR SISTER. MONIQUE STATED BEYONCE IS THE QUEEN, WHEN ALICIA KEY IS THE BEST SELLING R & B ARTIST. CIARA IS NOT EVEN MENTION IN THE HIGHLIGHT ON THE BET PAGE. B-DAY WAS LACKING SO THAT THE REASON FOR THE RERELEASE. I ‘M FAN OF POSTIVE WORKMANSHIP. CIARA WAS PLAYED BY B E T FOR RATING ONLY.

  9. That silver dress she wears makes her look big but she is quite slim in her other costumes. I love the Get Me Bodied performance. It’s very cute.

  10. Beyonce is pretty just like a lot of other female singers. :brownsista: I just can not get with her singing and I think that a lot of other female singers are being played down because ppl feel like its going to take something away from beyonce :lol2: and to think that only one :brownsista: can be the only famous one and make all the money gets us nowhere as a whole

  11. I heard Bee did her thing for 3 days straight at the festival. Ciara is starting to bore me with the Matrix thing. But you still gotta love her.

    In all I heard it was a great event and very very nice. This year was a very big look for the L.O.

    LOL 🙂

  12. I am thrilled the festival is back where it belongs and wish more of the news outlets had carried the story a little bit longer.

  13. Ciara common now do have any other moves :loser:
    Beyonce who really listen to your singing go put a shirt on stop trying hard to prove that you are more than :booty: and long weave! 😆 :iagree:
