10. The Most With the Least (Inspired by Nnamdi Omesiete)

a. Kate Nash:              The Album "Girl Talk" is too much of a mess, considering how positively earth shattering your 2 previous albums were. Your too talented for that half assed mess!!!


b. Kanye West:           "Yeezus" was too much of an over creative process that you forgot to consider the fans in your quest for critical success


c. Miley Cyrus:            To be honest, i dig your hustle, its just that "Bangerz" did not live up to the hype, good experimental record but not the best by far this year, When britney did it, it was for the iconic "Britney" Album, X-tina too was for the ground breaking "Stripped", Rhirhi unleashed "Good Girl Gone Bad" and "Rated R" and we got the reason for the evolution so if you wana take off your clothes, be sure to revel the deepest part of yourself (take the time and direction to make a record for the ages and not for just 2013)


d. Kelly Rowland:      Really Ms. Rowland??!!!! X Factor gig in the US and u still can't get a single to pass top 50 on Billboard? and please i can tell you that that album you released this year was a snore fest!!! get in gear boo and plot a comeback cause X factor cannot come and go without you gaining from it.


e. Mariah Carey:        The reason why i placed the whistle note queen here is because of all the hype and nothing to show for it this year! the issue with Nicki Minaj just showed tremendous immaturity and that left a bad taste in my mouth! fine the platinum selling "#Beautiful" was a great comeback but with issues like breaking your arm and the record label paying more attention to Kanye's project just pissed me off, though in the long run i kinda get the project delay cause no one wants to work so hard on a project just to release it with little or no promo. Now your all better, get to work!


f. Nicki Minaj:              Can i just say that the "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up" was a mistake cause it made little or no impact! the Idol gig did nothing for her except keep her on our screens and her recent over 100 features did not impress me like the first time she come on the scene! 2014 should come with a Minaj domination plan if not then you basically want to kiss the industry good bye!


g. Jls:                  to be honest, you guys should have not released a full fledged album with new material, you should have just released a greatest hits record with 3 new joints that you would have used to sign off for the time being! Solo is the way to go for at least the next 5 years!
h. The Saturdays:      A reality show and gigs in America and yet nothing!!!! time to find out the voodoo/Juju Adele is using …. and quick girls cause after listening to your latest album "Ready for The Weekend" (silly name btw) i don't know exactly where else you can go from here!!!


i. Azealia Banks:        Really Boo??!!! still no hit and your mouth is running like diarrhea! you need to get to a stadium and scream in the center to get all that back log of foolishness out the way!!! drops mic, exits stage!!!
