Beyonce VS. Rhiana. End of Story, end of Versuz.

Mariah needs to battle Janet.

A single octave from Mariah would blow guttural Beyonce into a lake, and I'm not even a MC stan.

I always heard gay rumors about LA Reid even during his marriage to Pebbles

10:35
Janet could never sing

Mariah and Celine Dion are more of a match.

RIP Whitney...cuz Nippy & MiMi Verzuz would've been a MF Verzuz to remember!!! Nonetheless, I'd say:
MARIAH vz TONI
BEYONCE vz RHIANNA

Janet vz Madonna
Diddy vz J.D.

And breaking the gender mold: Missy vz Busta

Not mad at Mariah vz Celine but I'm thinking
Celine vz Anita

Playing devil's advocate...had her career not been affected after his advances and she was able to sign those artists, would he still be a 'predator'?

@ 10:35 & 11:31...voacally Mariah is very weak live, always uses backing tracks and if you go into the catalogues, janet has a strong 8 or so ballads and at least 15 up tempo songs that i think would get her past Mariah. Mariah and Toni are closer in style but Toni has no uptempo music. midtempo at best

i do like janet vs. madonna but versuz has not opened the door to the pilgrims...yet.

Whitney is the blueprint. Mariah stated that when she shopped her demo people said she sound like Whitney. Tommy was going to promote her as a white version of Whitney until he did a background check and found out her father was black. He changed direction in promoting her.

A few things...

Bey ain't queen of shit. To be queen means to be worthy of success and praise. Beyonce is a decent artist who works very hard at her craft as a performer and singer. But that's where it ends. As far as her musical catalog is concerned, she's average at best. As far as songwriting is concerned, she's been sued multiple times for copyright and stealing credit for songs she never wrote. Now let's talk about the lovely, Ms. Mariah Carey. Bey can't touch MC when it comes to #1 hits, songwriting skills, relevant longevity, and her talent has inspired millions of ppl for at least 30 years. I'm sorry - who's queen? Bey is like a queen without a castle - a God in her own mind. But as far as reality is concerned? No one can touch MC on records sold, songwriting skills, and singing ability. While Bey tours 24/7, MC is bathing in champagne on her yacht. The bitch is worth $500 ON. HER. OWN. MERITS. and not from a group or a spouse. Mariah will always be queen. That L.A. nigga better recognize!

As far as Drew is concerned...there are other avenues to reporting sexual assault. Stop relying on the media to persecute predators. Take it to the police or court. Leave that shit out of the public domain. Or else you could be dealing with a lot of unnecessary probing into your sexual history. Privacy for sexual assault victims exist for reason.

*edit, I meant MC is worth $500 million on her own

Basically he saying what everyone knows: Beyonce is overrated. How is Beyonce going to battle Mariah for Hits when Beyonce doesn't even have a greatest hits CD? Mariah has 3. There's no comparison, Beyonce isn't touching Mariah's catalogue and voice by a longshot.

@ Unknown @ 1:34PM

I think LA Reid agrees with you.

People get severe backlash for critiquing Bey; this is the sneaky/shady way to do it. Possibly characteristic of the type of person who would do what Ms. Dixon has alleged.

Bey and Mariah are not of the same generation, and LA knows that. Whitney, Mariah, Celine, Janet, Madonna, Toni, etc are of the same era. In that grouping:
Janet vs. Madonna, Whitney vs. Mariah, Mariah vs. Celine, Whitney vs. Celine, maybe Toni vs. Mariah, etc.

LA knows that.

Beyodel is overrated and she makes music for ghey boys and hoodrats.
Mimi is Queen all day every day!

I agree with ALL OF YOU!! Bey is overrated as hell. Her voice cant f@ck with MIMI on her worst day. She def makes music for gay men and hoodrats. Shes the Queen of ghey boys and hoodrats!!!
