I cant believe that Miss Dominica 2009 thought that the Integrity in Publc Service act meant integrating with the public in grand style…. i dont know what the judges were thinking!

We all know… the results aren’t in our favour every year… and then the girls go out there and represent well….
Let’s not judge our Queen….. just accept and support her in her future endeavours

If you think this is negative for saying she needs to tone down well so be it, I wasn’t saying she don’t deserve her crown but please give her the advice to take her time to talk, where were you when she had the interview with Curtis Matthew? Oh please was it an ARGUMENT??????

While I say congrats to Miss Dominica, I kinda see where Miami and Cathy are coming from. Jay & Smoove…these are constructive criticism only designed to make Kayan better.

That word “hating” is so over-rated that I think it ought to be banned! Before someone makes an observation is hate he/she is hating? Stupesssssss….

C’mon we have to say it like it is. Miami put it nicely by saying that “she needs to tone down” but I will say straight Kayan sounded so vulgar and ghetto……. at least that’s how she sounded over my live-feed all the way in the US. I don’t know the young lady; so trust me when I say that I have nothing personal against her. I’m just giving my opinion based on what I heard that night. Actually, I made the observation even before her crowing moment…i.e. in-between the rounds when they were being intercepted back stage….the other girls sounded so polished and in control and Kayan was in another league.

True she was exuberant over winning, but her conduct was way beyond exuberance…..she is loud! A couple of us Dominicans were listening to the show and we were like wow! whoever is working with the young lady has a lot of work to do, in grooming her for the overseas market…..she needs to go to finishing school as the British would say.

I am a big supporter of young people trying to do something positive with themselves; but, I am so against those of us who try to sugar-coat their flaws. Afterall, she is not only your queen, she is also my queen, DOMINICA’S QUEEN; so, we will nip her bad habits in the bud very early before they become an embarassment to our country.

Unlike you all who are high on super-sensitivity, Kayan will thank us for pointing out these things to her. Before long, Kayan will quickly realize that royalty and vulgarity do not make bedfellows. She will also realize that it’s people like Jay and Smoove who are doing her a disservice. With our constructive criticism, Kayan will blossom into a true Dominican Royalty. GO KAYAN! MAKE DOMINICA PROUD!

As for the other comments about the Q&A round; I don’t see this as a big issue because all the girls are intelligent, and Kayan is no exception. Next time she will do better.

Congrats again Kayan
