Whatcha Say: The Good, The Bad & The Grammy In This Week’s Reader Comments
The past seven days have been pop-packed and full of punch. We witnessed the 53rd Grammy Awards, heard Lady Gaga’s brand new single “Born This Way,” saw a whole lot of hatred lobbed at Nicki Minaj by hip hop icon Lil’ Kim and finally viewed Britney Spears’ music video for her latest #1 single “Hold It Against Me.” And along the way, our readers had plenty to say about all this music mayhem. Read on!
:: Alex was just tired of the Material Girl comparisons: “LOL, many artists have been influenced by Madonna. Gaga has not been the only one. (See: Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, any other pop stars) So for all the people that think they’re so smart for seeing this song has Madonna influnces, NICE JOB. YOU HAVE ALL OFFICIALLY EARNED YOUR RANKS AS CAPTAIN OBVIOUS.”
:: And there was no love in this club from Derek when it came to Usher’s Grammy performance: “…why does Usher even bother performing? He never sings live. And standing ovation?? Really???”
:: Jamie had just one burning question on Grammy Awards 2011: The Performances: “IS christina pregnant again??”
:: Brandon Hall gave the smackdown on Justin Bieber Disappointed He Didn’t Win Best New Artist — And So Are His Fans: “If he would have won the Grammy for best new artist by all means the Grammys would officially be a joke not to be taken with an ounce of credibility. You know we’re in a bad place for music when someone like him can think he deserves a Grammy for best new artist for the complete rubbish he has put out in the past however long he’s been relevant.”
:: Aaron Howard noticed that the wrong stars were colliding on Katy Perry Beams Kanye West Into Her “E.T.” Mix: “This is the second time he screwed up one of my favorite pop songs. ‘In for the Kill’ feat. Kanye? A disaster!”
:: Caleb Galore expressed his disappointment on Britney Spears Smiles For The Cameras In Her “Hold It Against Me” Video: “I used to love watching her videos. She was an insane dancer. Now I watch every new video hoping that time will bring her back to her former glory. I gave her a pass on Circus and it’s videos because she was still getting back into performing but it’s been 2 years now. Why is it that she still can’t dance? and why does no one seem to care? Nevermind that this video made absolutely no sense.”
