The Resume

    Choreographed Beyonce's ‘Ring the Alarm’ music video (2006)

Why she might be annoying:

    She started out as a video vixen.
    Her debut appearance was on an episode of MTV's My Super Sweet 16.
    She revealed that she and Imam Shumpert had secretly married during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show.
    This would later prove to be false, as the couple did not actually wed until two weeks after her announcement on the show.
    Azealia Banks accused her of lifting moves from choreographer Matt Pasteria for the 'Fade' music video, and of refusing to give him credit 'until a lawyer got involved.'
    She admitted to pursuing an open marriage with Imam during a Sway in the Morning appearance, joking about being Dora the Explorer and Curious George about threesomes (and then acted shocked when there was a backlash on social media).
    She publicly feuded with Jeremih, walking off his 'Later That Night' tour and blasting him on Twitter as a 'lazy, sneaky, jealous, conniving, [selfish], lame ass n—a.'

Why she might not be annoying:

    She is of Afro-Trinidadian descent.
    She was influenced by Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, and Lauryn Hill.
    She started performing at the age of nine, singing in local talent competitions at the Apollo Theater.
    Her husband, Iman Shumpert, delivered their baby with his bare hands at the couple's home after she went into labor early
    She won a MTV Video Music Award for Choreography for 'Fade,' shared with Kanye West (2017).
    Her ‘Fade’ gymnasium dance routine paid homage to Jennifer Beals' iconic ‘Flashdance’ routine (as well as being a reminder as to why you spray and wipe the sweaty gym machines off before using them).
    She received acclaim performing with Kanye West in the debut of his 'We Got Love' single on SNL - the performance receiving a better reception than West's other two panned appearances that night (the third of which he was loudly booed; September, 2018).
