    It's hard to believe, but Aaliyah has been gone for over a decade.

    Yesterday, a co-worker and I were discussing the performance of Beyonce on the Superbowl and I said: "If Aaliyah were still alive; Beyonce wouldn't be as popular as she is. Aaliyah had something that she didn't: MYSTIQUE". And she had real style. She had that Sade cool.

    Beyonce wears church lady fashion and her performances really aren't impressing for those of us who are over 35. What is she really doing?

    Janet Jackson was a trailblazer and really? Beyonce does not have the Diva quality of Diana Ross at all.

    So, I thought this one would be a good topic to debate today.

    Do you agree with what I said to my co-worker. :10200: She totally agreed with me by the way.

    You know I had to do it:

    Aaliyah had a straight Dopeness that remains untouched.

    I think they are all there to be distractions, and that choosing to fight between who is "superior" is comparing apples with oranges. If this were all the case I could cry over Nicki Minaj and talk about all of the local artists who are so "talented". There are some people who are willing to sell out their race for the sake of money. Hence, why we have both MTV/BET and Hollywood.

    why is it necessary to detract from one to add to the other?

    they both rose to the top of their game...with obvious talent, looks, and flare. they both garner the praise of their followers. they were never in opposition to one another...never opposed to each other. why can't we just appreciate them...and their accomplishments...without pitting one against the other?

    that's just my take.

    peace

    Aaliyah was just pure and natural talent at it's best.....

    Her death, a ritual!

    Comparing her to Beyonc'e only put's bey on a level she doesn't deserve.

    Putting anyone of them against each other is out of it's nature

    Bey is a star as well Ms. Ross and Aaliyah they all have there style and era of time

    you can't take from one to make another shine sorry y'all wrong on this one

    it's like putting the temptation / 4Tops / spinners / whispers and others against each other
    when everyone of these groups are stars / legends and was great artist ........these ladies
    no different...
