Hey, wait a minute, all this crap is dedicated to Nobama! He will lose in the election because he is the cause of this recession, jobs gone away and the piss poor economy!

Nobama is a putz, a clutz, and whatever else!

To paraphrase Carl Jung..."what bothers us most about other people is usually a reflection of ourselves." All the hateful comments here are most likely from people who don't pay their own mortgages, but someone how find the money to be able to stand in line for days to buy an iphone/ipad.

POS just sums it up and I'll tell you why. though she may be an amazing singer, there are TONS of amazing singers that dont strike the lottery and become famous. With 40 million records sold, you would think she would have plenty of money to live on, as well as help her family for the rest of her life. this is insane. how do u sell 40mil records and have the nerve to claim bankruptcy twice, which is flipping the bill to the average american to pay so that she can start fresh. F her.
