Whatcha Say: The Good, The Bad And The SuBo In This Week’s Reader Comments
Leave it to Susan Boyle to dust up a little controversy just as the week seemed to winding down. Her rendition of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” made headlines today, while the past seven days also offered up new music from Josh Groban and David Archuleta, an act of goodwill from Lady Gaga, some praise for Whitney Houston and a romantic new video from Bruno Mars. See how our readers reacted to all these pop exploits below!
:: GagaFan thought the fashionable “Bad Romance” singer was putting on her best poker face on Lady Gaga, Peacemaker, Breaks Up A Fight At her Concert: “I thought that the ‘stop fighting’ thing was staged. I was there and didn’t see any fighting or anyone hauled out, I think it was just part of her show.”
:: Violet crushed on David Archuleta Reveals The Other Side Of Down Track Listing—And A New Song: “I adore David. He did great on the telethon! And he was there the day before for setup and worked the phones during the telethon. I think Things Are Gonna Get Better is more of a midtempo but I have my fingers crossed for couple of killer ballads.”
:: Nikkifire checked into the Heartbreak Hotel on Whitney Houston Crowned The Greatest Diva Of All Time: “I love Whitney, but her fans over at Classic Whitney make it very hard to have a community where mature thoughts and critiques of her current state are had.”
:: The Singer Commentor commented on Bruno Mars Puts His Feelings In A Mixtape In His “Just The Way You Are” Video: “I like the sweet idea of mix tape huh.. It sounds so romantic… But, I don’t really like Bruno Mars, he’s such an ugly sucks!!”
:: Paul Jr. raised up his rabbit heart on Florence + The Machine On The VMAs And Loving Nicki Minaj And Green Day: “I adore Florence + The Machine! Hands down my favorite new artist this past year, so much intensity and talent in that voice! Can’t wait for more music from them :)”
:: Carol, on the other hand, took a walk on the wild side: “Stunning! No wonder this man did not want Susan to perform this song. It puts any performance of his to shame. Such emotion and intensity and that glorious voice.”
