    I don't want to upset any Beatle fans but how is it that all 4 members made it into the HOF as solo artist but they wont even nominate Diana Ross???? A woman that has had an influence on Michael Jackson, Madonna, Donna Summer, Beyoncé, Mariah, Janet, and countless others. She also has a great catalog (singles) and has had great chart success. What did she do to piss people off? No Grammy, no Oscar, and no R&R HOF solo honors.
    Well, maybe Diana is not really as "glorious" as you say? no shade or anything, she's always seemed quite overrated to me, and probably the R&R HOF and Grammys think the same.

    Donna Summer >>>>>>>>>

    Ringo IMO as a solo artist in the Hall of Fame was kind of a joke, but I do think Lennon, McCartney and Harrison certainly deserved their place for their post-Beatles material. Ringo I don't think really merits it though just on the basis of his solo work. He had a couple songs in the 70s that were nice but not to the extent he deserved induction before many artists who have been skipped over. Ringo solo belongs in as much as Mick Jagger solo or Pete Townshend solo or someone else who was in a legendary band and had one or two solo hits.

    Diana's problem is that she didn't write her songs or have enough creative input... same reason (her isn't in (have to discretely alter the spellling of her name lol). The Supremes being in seems to suffice, just like how Tina Turner arguably deserves to be in the HOF as a solo artist but they see Ike And Tina to be good enough especially since Tina was an song interpreter as opposed to a songwriter/musician. The HOF people seem to focus more on musicians and songwriters as opposed to just celebrity and usually the "pop icons" who get inducted were ones who played a larger part in their musical creativity (MJ, Madonna, Prince, Donna Summer, ABBA, Bee Gees, Elton John, Billy Joel, etc.... all songwriters, some producers, etc....) vs. just someone who comes into the studio and lays down vocal tracks while others do the magic.

    I miss Amy Winehouse so much. Her musicality was so innate and unique, no other mainstream singer could compare.

    Damn, it's been five years already.

    Because most of the voters are 60+ years old white dudes. It's the same problem that the Grammy's and the Oscar's have. The voting population is a different demographic from most of the art they're supposed to be deciding on. So they appreciate certain artists a inordinate amount and Diana winds up with the short end of the stick.

    Biscuits,

    Many reasons i guess. Its so close to home and Orlando is like my second home. I got there twice a month and i have family and friends out there. Having friends crying to me about losing their friends brings on the empathy. Worrying for my own saftey has increased by a mile. There are many other reasons why I feel this way and I dont need you to tell me how I should feel.

    I spend most of my time writing, studying, and working but niw that will probably increase due to my anxuety towards everything that is happening.

    Calling me extra and saying Christina is just some talent show alumni would have are two opinions you should have kept to yourself.

    I will say the no eating part comes from a change in my diet as well as the tragedies but I cant control waking up in the middle of the night.

I go to Orlando tomorrow to pay my respect and to visit my friend Ivan who called me crying.
    Ok, let me sound like a heartless bitch and ask why this is affecting you so much to the point that you cannot eat?

    Yeah they're bad situations, but that's so extra if you didn't even know anybody personally.

    I'm not putting my life on hold because some talent show alumni got shot.
    I also cannot relate that much to what he's saying (ofc I feel sad and mad for what happend), but...


    aren't you the one who wanted a day off from work when Janet canceled her performance? p.s. still love you <3
    Totally different boo! The Janet thing affected me personally because after being a diehard fan for 20 years, I was finally gonna be FRONT ROW CENTRE at her concert...but then she cancelled! Plus, I was flying from Seoul to Brimingham for it!

    But I don't think I wanted a day off...I just wanted my boss to understand

    What's exactly the problem in that thread?
    Everytime I try to see what's going on there all I see is these unknown people talking about divas and... I'm out as fast as I went there. So I don't really know what's the problem.
    It would nice to have a thread where you can discuss Mariah Carey without people calling you a hater or a troll every time you post something that's not 100% blind, delusional praise.
    Plus, all the talk about her vocals...like, I'm not even sure Mimi herself knows the reason for her vocal decline, let alone her delusional followers
