I was skimming through my social networks an stumbled on this nonsense. VH1 did a ranking for best artist of all time. I had been boycotting these rankings especially since that dance rank when they put Ciara at 25 (a blind man could see that was crazy) But I checked out the list and saw this fuckery
Confusing aint it. So I scroll down even more to see that Mariah is #94. Some things about this ranking just dont sit right with me. Now if this said of our generation now I would get it. But it says of ALL TIME. How can you put a entertainer above the two people that inspired her to even get in the game??? But for my readers that need the facts. I got you in a second.
