One lesson we learned over the past seven days: when it comes to waxing poetic on Justin Bieber, the fans of the crafty pop singer have a penchant for using the Caps Lock button—and on that you can Belieb! It was also a week that saw new music from Mariah Carey, JLS and Christina Aguilera surface, and everyone seemed to have an opinion on how these pop stars’ careers either are or should be operating. Head below for an earful and eyeful in our roundup of readers comments!
:: Emma gave us some insight into Bieber mania of the Nordic variety on Justin Bieber Enlists His BFF Usher For A Remix Of “Somebody To Love”: “SWEDISH GIRLS HAVE BIEBER FEVER ALL THE TIME.” (Better step it up, America.)
:: daysia decided to try the Twilight approach to wooing The Bieb on PHOTOS: You Be The Judge, Justin Bieber’s Tattoo Real Or Fake?: “IF I WERE A VAPIRE [sic] I WOULD SUCK YOUR BLOOD.”
:: lol questioned our dignity on JLS Salute ‘The Sound Of Music’ In Latest Single “The Club Is Alive”: “I wonder how much their label paid you to ‘push’ them as hard as you are trying to. Surely you know well they are a bunch of talentless bums that sell records by lifting their shirts at every opportunity. Shame on you Idolator.”
:: Ali offered up some sage advice for Xtina on Christina Aguilera Is So Damn “Bionic” In Santigold-Sounding Title Track: “Xtina wore these crazy, streetwalker outifts before BUT NO ONE NOTICED. Xtina, kissed Madonna NO ONE TALKED ABOUT IT… See, the problem with her is SHE ALWAYS COME SECOND – she was only second to Brtiney in the 90s. now, she’s behind Lady Gaga… Xtina need to fire her handlers…seriously!”
:: Likewise, Brandon Hall was in a career counseling mood as well on Mariah Carey Covers “Help Me Make It Through The Night”: “She really has been having an identity crisis with her music lately, I felt that The Emancipation of Mimi was a terrific fusion of Pop and R&B her last two albums have either steered strongly into the pop range with Touch My Body or into the Hip-Hop and R&B with Obsessed and alot of weird sounds mixed in inbetween. I’m not sure why she decided to switch directions after TEOM but it hasn’t worked out very well. Bring Mimi back if that’s what it takes!”
COMMENT OF THE WEEK: MRSBIN08, who kept the CAPS-lock train rolling on Ciara’s “Ride” Video: Apparently She’s Not Talking About Cars: “CI CI GOES HARD ALL YA HATING CAUSE YA CANT DO THAT SHIT RIHANNA RI RI EVERYONE FEELS SORRY FOR HER SHE WASN’T REALLY DOING SHIT IN HER VIDEO CICI GO…SO ALL U HATAS YA NEED TO GO”
