This week’s Ibrawlator got heated when we asked our readers: Which of the up-and-coming girl groups would reign supreme in 2013, Fifth Harmony or Little Mix? Mixers and Harmonizers do not play games when it comes to defending their favorites. Who will win? We’ll find out on Monday.
Another big topic this week: Kanye West. With the release of Yeezus a few days away (err, despite the leak), the rap mogul has been making headlines all this week. whether he’s performing at Governors Ball, shooting an “American Psycho”-themed video in Brooklyn, or doing peculiar interviews with the New York Times, it’s always a G.O.O.D. time with Yeezus.
Check out some of this week’s best comments below!
:: When we asked what Blue Ivy was thinking while soaking in the hot tub with Mama Beyoncé in this week’s Caption This, Myra V. provided just the right quip: “Mama, I’mma let you finish this soak in the hottub, but my playpen castle is the best of all time!”
:: Matt Decuir fully supports Kelly Rowland‘s marketing campaign for her upcoming album on Kelly Rowland & Wiz Khalifa Perform “Gone” On ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon: “It feels like she’s taking cues from the way Justin Timberlake promoted “20/20″. He did mainly big events and didn’t perform the same song everywhere, so people got a feel for the album. She also looks like she’s more comfortable on stage by herself. I’m really hoping that this is her time and she SLAYS.”
:: Upon hearing the the new Jonas Brothers‘ single “First Time,” lolo left a very enthusiastic comment on Jonas Brothers’ “First Time”: Hear The Soaring Midtempo: “THEY REALLY GREW UP OMG I LOVE IT AND KEVIN’S VOICE IS AMAZING.”
:: And when Michelle Williams dropped a tease of her upcoming gospel-infused single “If We Had Your Eyes,” Jonathan G. certainly wasted no time singing his praises on Michelle Williams Announces New Single “If We Had Your Eyes”: Watch The Teaser: “YAS MICHELLE SLAY THEM!! Loving the beat, giving me 70s soul teas! Harmony never dissapoints! Michelle’s vocals have grown so much over the past decade as her the quality of her albums. I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE 24TH!!! It’s been a LONG WAIT, BUT TEAM MICHELLE HAS FINALLY BEEN SERVED ALL LIFE.”
:: In a sea of rabid stans, Opal made a very straight-forward comment about her girl group of choice on Ibrawlator: Fifth Harmony Vs. Little Mix, Which Girl Group Will Reign?: “Style, Dancing: Little Mix. Vocals, Personality: Fifth Harmony. Voted for Fifth Harmony.”
:: But when 5H dropped 30 seconds of their debut single this afternoon, Christy was less than pleased on Fifth Harmony’s Debut Single “Miss Movin’ On”: Listen To 30 Seconds: “It’s so generic and it’s a shame because I think these girls are talented. They should’ve gone for a more urban sound. I think R&B showcases their great vocals better, especially since “Impossible” by Shontelle is what got people believing in them in the first place.”
:: The Dolls gained many new fans this week with the release of their debut single “Summer of ’93.” Megan extended her high hopes for the pop duo on The Dolls Make A Grand Debut With “Summer Of ’93″: Idolator Premiere: “absolutely love this, amazing, brilliant work, can’t wait for you guys to release more stuff! I just know this will be one of those songs I will repeat and repeat.”
:: Kelly Clarkson got fans excited when she premiered her new country/rock jam “Tie It Up” at the CMA Music Festival last weekend. Gussie left their thoughts on the new single on Kelly Clarkson Debuts New Single “Tie It Up” Live, Unveils Cover Artwork: “…it’s a real catchy upbeat song. LOVE IT!!! Love the cover. Kelly is in a very happy place right now and she deserves to be there. Sunflowers are her favorite and she and they look awesome in the cover.”
:: After Justin Timberlake announced “Tunnel Vison” as the next single from The 20/20 Experience, Naomi voiced her opinion on Justin Timberlake Lines Up “Tunnel Vision” For Next Single, Reveals Artwork: “As much as I love “Tunnel Vision,” I would have liked to see ‘Pusher Love Girl’ as the next single.”
:: And finally, Paris Hilton super stan Sebastian R. couldn’t even handle his excitement (and contempt for fellow pop divas) on Paris Hilton Talks New Album: “Electropop Album” With “Surprise Guests”: “I can’t wait any longer for Paris to reclaim her role atop the pop-diva totem pole. Queen Bey-hind? Stans for Kelly Roland. Lady Gag-gag? #who? Sh!tney Spears? As if. Floptina? Is now featured, FEATURED, in Pitbull songs….PARIS KILLTON IS ABOUT TO CHANGE THE FACE OF POP MUSIC.”
