Maybe it’s just me, but I really don’t understand what these folks look for when it comes to being nominted. I will hold my own opinions and reservations, as they won’t hold any merit. Congrats to all nominated! Special congrats to IGGY AZALEA who is sure to win one of the 4 she’s nominated for. Long time comin’ Iggz!
