:: blaackeagle makes a fitting reference on Britney Spears Unveils ‘Britney Jean’ Album Cover, Pens Emotional Letter To Fans: “She looks very young. Exact cover art for personal album – bare, black and white, from the bottom of her heart.”
:: Tim Harris drags Cher Lloyd on Cher Lloyd Publicly Shames L.A. Reid, Swears Up A Storm In Charming Interview: Watch: “She’s a smart one, isn’t she? Starting crap with one of the most powerful men in the biz is a brilliant way to get your album made a top priority! Good luck with that one, lil girl.”
:: David is quick to shade us on Guy Sebastian Comes Back Swinging With New Single “Like A Drum”: “Writes article about single. Doesn’t include link to listen to or buy single…”
:: I think we all agree with Mohammed on Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’: Review Revue: “I seriously believe it’s her weakest album to date. I really do believe that she can do a better job.”
:: Bryan reassures us thins will get better on Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’: Album Review: “It’s okay, Sam. ‘Avril Lavigne’ is out in 2 weeks and we both know that you’ll enjoy it as much as the rest of the world , who sadly will be embarrassed to admit to.”
:: Robert Michael Ranneberger is loving Mother Monster’s new, innovative era on Lady Gaga Teases A Snippet Of ‘ARTPOP’ Title Track: Listen: “This… turned up very loud on dope speakers… extremely, genuinely, exciting if you appreciate her advancement of pop as a truly creative and dynamic genre… what fun it used to be, and how Gaga obviously understands that. The production on this entire album is crystal clear and complexly layered. Each song and snippet released has taken this album from beyond promising to impossible to ignore as legit for pop music (and music) fans.”
:: Chris was not impressed with Selena Gomez on Selena Gomez Drops An Awesome Acoustic Version Of “Come & Get It”: “Listen: You guys must be on crack or are you being sarcastic? I’ve seen her sing live too many times to know she has a very weak voice, one of the worst in the industry. It’s not singing, it’s a whisper, a purr. I cannot get that rendition of “Birthday” from Live with Kelly and Michael out of my head. It was awful and you cannot deny it. I do not hate her, but come on now. Her backup singers do most of the work, it’s a dead shame.”
:: Shanghaikid43 made a commentary on pop music on Lady Gaga Reveals (Her Ass For) Her “Do What U Want” Single Artwork: “When did people becomes such prudes? Pop stars have been taking their clothes off for decades, Gaga has been doing it since she started. Why is anyone surprised? Besides, that ass is on point.”
:: Lastly, Dustin summed up what we were all thinking with a single word on Lady Gaga Debuts “Gypsy” Live At Berlin Listening Party: Watch: “Chills.”
