    @Freddy: NO AMOUNT OF losers and idiots buying and supporting Sh#tney will make her “talented” or “respected.”

    At least Christina is RESPECTED in the music industry. No one respects that UGLY, BRAIN DEAD, NO-TALENT, SMELLY, SH#TNEY.

    Adele is No. 1 !
    Her album 21 goes so deep into my heart like no other album before !
    Lana Del Rey is No. 2, coz´ her album goes nearly so deep into my heart like adele´s album !
    Rihanna´s hit “Diamonds” is intergallactic. Therefore she´s No. 3
    Christina Aguilera´s album LOTUS is the most sexiest one. Therefore Christina is No. 4…………..CHRISTINA IS ALWAYS HOT !!!
    Mo´s MDNA is No. 5, coz´ it has some hot songs, too.
    Nicki Minaj´s “Pink Friday” is No. 6, coz´ it has some “fresh” and hot songs. Or she even can share No. 5 with Mo.
    Bruno Mars is No. 7 or No. 1 of the male singers !
    Justin Biever is No. 2 of the male singers.
    Adam Levine is No. 3.
    Chris Brown is No. 4, coz´ he was abusive against Ri in the past, hihi !

    Dirkstar Says:

    Of course, Beyonce made a good album, too, I think. (Although I didn´t hear it)
    And don´t forget Pink´s “The Truth About Love” !
    It´s a Great album, too !
