Happy Friday, Idolator readers! Feel that warmth in the air? Yes, Spring has sprung (sorta!), and the season is mercifully shifting. We braved the polar vortex, and now it’s time to relish in the next quarter of pop releases. What’s to come? Well, Enrique Iglesias‘ Sex + Love and Kylie Minogue‘s Kiss Me Once both kicked off this week (have you entered to win a limited edition box set of Kylie’s new album yet?), while Lady Gaga‘s “G.U.Y.” video promises to give us all something to talk about tomorrow night.
Meanwhile, Ariana Grande and Chris Brown‘s duet was cancelled due to that whole jail thing, J. Lo took “I Luh Ya Papi” to the Idol stage and Justin Timberlake dropped the not-so-bad video for “Not A Bad Thing.” As always, you guys had plenty to say. Check out the week’s best comments below!
:: Smokestack Lightning felt some fire down below after sorting through Madonna‘s insane Instagrams on Madonna’s Crazy Instagram Account Is Everything, From Armpit Hair To Novelty Bongs: 12 Pics: “She’s a little old for me, but I’d still tame that strange! Most women don’t have that much hair on their vajayjays these days.”
:: Daniel H. praised the Lorde for refusing to bow down to the Westboro Baptist Church on Lorde Encourages Rainbow-Colored Clothing And Same-Sex Kissing At Picketed Kansas Concert: “Gives a new and more meaningful meaning to the phrase “Thank you Lorde!” And I Thank you loudly for standing up to such hatred and misuse of religion. I stand with you.”
:: Drew wanted so badly to be good when he heard about Gaga’s opening act on Lady Gaga Picks K-Pop Girl Group Crayon Pop To Open Her ‘ARTPOP Ball’ Tour: “Doing my best to hold in my shade. Can’t. Looks like I won’t need to get to the venue that early, then.”
:: Greg wasn’t too pleased with Enrique’s latest effort on Enrique Iglesias’ ‘Sex + Love’: Album Review: “I think the next logical step for this guy is to leave pitbull’s side. This album seems like a rehashed batch of 2010 leftovers….. as did Britney Jean, Ke$ha’s ‘Warrior’, Katy’s ‘Prism’, and a few others from last quarter. These “stars” should be capable of more, and I don’t know about the fan bases for each, but i’m certainly ready for some new producers to hit the scene. Will.i.Am, Pitbull, Dr. Luke and Max Martin all need to take a giant seat.”
:: Richard M threw some shade Ariana’s way on Chris Brown And Ariana Grande’s Duet “Don’t Be Gone Too Long” Has Been Postponed: “It should be released with just Chris and not this unknown singer.”
:: But GYFS was quick to supply the receipts: “That “unknown singer” has not only just recently performed for the President, but her albulm Yours Truly debuted at #1. She has also has starred in two Nick shows (Victorious and Sam and Cat) and has also been on Broadway before.”
:: Tommy C found Azealia Banks‘ album leak plans to be conveniently timed on Azealia Banks Says She Will Leak Her Album On Tax Day: “Around the same time Iggy’s album comes out….”
:: Kevin found pleasure in Kylie’s new album on Kylie Minogue’s ‘Kiss Me Once’: Review Revue: “She’s won a new fan with me. I liked Aphrodite, but not that much. But now I’m truly in love with her music. Actually, I’m revisiting her past albums and finding so much pleasure on them.”
:: And Eduardo agreed, adding: “I´m totally bewitched. This is the best pop album in the last 10 years. Pop music has a lot of thanks to give Kylie for saving pop music. This album is purely a gem of pop music.”
:: And finally, Pablo took one listen to the mini-snippet of Selena Gomez‘s new rumored collabo with Justin Bieber and came to a pithy conclusion on Selena Gomez Teases Fans With A Snippet: Could It Be A Taste Of Her Justin Bieber Duet?: “Way to try new things, Selena.”
