The 2010 BET nominations have been announced and while Jay-Z is ahead of the pack, leading with 5 nods (Jay-Z Is A Wife Beater On BET), Monica is the artist that has got everyone talking.

Although BET included Monica’s name in the category for “Viewers Choice Award” and something called a “Centric Award,” we expected more for an artist who returned from a hiatus with a #1 album (“Still Standing” claimed the spot only a week after it’s release) and her very own, well-received reality show.

Rihanna (the hybrid of pop & (wannabe) rock)
