  1. I ‘m so, so, so.so, glad that my girl did it Nikki did it she deserves it she and Drake deserves it finally? Just like Lebron said it, it is about damn time? And I’m finally happy that Beyonce did not win big. I mean it is wonderful for someone (for a change) else get it, that worked they a$$ off. I mean I am tired of hearing about (that B–CH BEYONCE) her and nobody cares about other artists that deserves it) she is a selfish person I don’t care about what other people think about me for what I’m saying about her. so my hats is off for Nikki let this become a better year for you. And P.S. she didn’t have that baby? if you have a baby go online and you can see it for yourself ( that’s if you think I’m lying Connie\.
