Whatcha Say: Eminem, Kanye & Adam Lambert Got Our Readers Talking

Nov 1st, 2013 // 3 Comments

Happy Halloween, Idolator readers! We hope you had a positively ghoulish time last night — and tonight, in case you’re still celebrating (and/or keeping that Miley costume on) for another night. Speaking of, if you wore a pop star outfit for Halloween this year, send us a photo — you could win a $50 iTunes gift card!

The stars certainly pulled out all the stops with their Halloween celebrations: Miley twerked it out as Lil’ Kim, Nicki Minaj sizzled as a bondage babe, Beyonce remained angelic and Britney creeped us all out with her spook-tacular reading from “Thriller.”

In non-Halloween related events, we also saw a bunch of new music releases — from the likes of everyone from Sky Ferreira to Eminem and Sia. Plus, we came up with a pretty convincing pop conspiracy regarding Em and Yeezy.) Check out some of this week’s best comments below!

:: Conspiracy theorist Fart Knocker was unimpressed with Carl’s conspiracy theory research on Pop Conspiracy Theory: Eminem’s ‘MMLP2′ Contains Secret Kanye West Allusions: “You probably have seen Jesus in your tortillas too, haven’t you?”

:: While WinterIsComing found another intriguing comparison between the two: “There is a pattern! Eminem has a song called “Asshole” and Kanye is an Asshole! SOLVED.”

:: Diane was super impressed with Ed Sheeran’s live show at MSG on Ed Sheeran Debuts New Song Live At Madison Square Garden: Watch: ” I’ve seen him as the opener for One Direction and at the TJ Martell Foundation fundraiser where he did a mini-version of the show and I wasn’t sure if he could pull off MSG as a headliner — but he had no problem and has earned my admiration.”

:: Tony B stanned for Sia on Eminem Taps Sia For Surprisingly Hopeful “Beautiful Pain”: Listen To The ‘MMLP2′ Bonus Track: “Like Wild One’s…if you mute the high-school rap, Sia makes it the BEST POP OUT THERE.”

:: GClay felt for the Killer Lovers of the world on Nicole Scherzinger Gets Into The Christmas Spirit With “O Holy Night”: Listen To A Snippet: “Does anyone stan for her? I feel terrible, she hasn’t even ever released an album.”

:: yup29 delivered the truth tea regarding the JoBros break-up on Jonas Brothers Explain Their Breakup On ‘Good Morning America’: Watch: “I always felt the problem with the Jonas Brothers is that they never evolved with their fan base and never had any material that went mainstream and was a top 10 radio hit, no ? I wish them well but I think their new material was doomed from the start.”

:: queenrosered couldn’t get enough of King Glambert on Adam Lambert Covers Lady Gaga’s “Marry The Night” For ‘Glee’: Listen: “Never in the history of pop or rock has a singer so totally owned each and every song they have covered OR written! He truly IS in a league of his own. Best EVER!”

:: Sherry Sullivan agreed, saying: “Glee is going to be the vehicle he needs so the rest of the world can see this adorable and talented man.”

:: And Leela did too, along with some praise for the original: “Adam sounds great (was there any question?!) but thanks for complimenting Gaga – her voice matches her theatricality too, btw. I love her version of this song – and now I have the next best thing, Adam’s version.”

:: drew was not feeling much sympathy for Breezy on Chris Brown Enters Rehab Following Assault Charge: “In a couple months or so he’ll be pounding people on the street again. Maybe he’ll write a song called “Feel Sorry For Me (I’m Really Hitting Myself).” For kicks, he should have Rihanna on there too.”

:: And Joanne is quite worried about K$’s success under Dr. Luke, but thinks there’s a way to salvage her career on Ke$ha’s Mom Shades Dr. Luke On Twitter, Demands Creative Freedom For Her Daughter: “I think RCA needs to step in and do something to get her out of her Kemosabe contract and manage her career themselves. They can’t do any worse with her. She used to be one of their biggest artists and she can be again.”

  1. Re: Ke$ha. Sorry she has never been that big of an artist. Her mgmt team had her everywhere but as seen at iHeartRadio festival she bombed and bombed badly. Honestly she can’t sing live and even using autotune doesn’t help. I couldn’t believe her behavior on stage. Was she on drugs or was this the real Ke$ha?

      What the heck are you talking about? Ke$ha has two of the biggest selling singles of all time and had 8 straight top 10 hits. Tik Tok alone has sales of more than 14 million worldwide. She obviously made tens of millions for her label during the Animal/Cannibal era. She was big. And what iHeartRadio performance are you talking about? I watched both and she sang on key the whole time despite giving a very energetic performance. While she’s no great vocalist like Beyonce, she’s clearly a good singer. And her performance was well planned and choreographed. She clearly wasn’t on drugs but maybe some in the audience were if they thought there was anything wrong with her performance.

  2. “Never in the history of pop or rock has a singer so totally owned each and every song they have covered OR written! He truly IS in a league of his own. Best EVER!”Exactly!
