Over the past week, we heard Susan Boyle’s cover of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy The Silence” and Bruno Mars’ new single from Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1. We also saw Kelly Clarkson’s “Mr. Know It All” video, Kid Cudi’s comical interview with Conan O’Brien and Adam Lambert’s sitdown with Heidi Klum. So, how did our readers react to all this pop mayhem? Read on!

Kelly Clarkson Mr. Know It All
:: Riley was living the life on Kelly Clarkson Tears Through Her “Mr. Know It All” Video: “Love the video! I agree it fits perfectly with the song. I like how it goes from the cool lighting scenes, to a simple western backdrop. I might not have finished with the western road…but I hope that’s where the new video starts.”

:: Benjamin, however, thought there was more to be learned: “Kelly can do better…her management, stylist, media direction needs to take it up a notch…this looks like she just got out of American Idol last week rather than almost ten years ago…Kelly, you are amazing…Please move forward!!!!”

:: NolaChick felt there was no bite in Bruno Mars “It Will Rain”: Listen To The Twilight Soundtrack Song: “Ugh! This is awful! The only saving grace may be the fact that the singles from the last two soundtracks were terrible, but there were some great songs on them. New Moon was by far the best soundtrack, but worst movie. Eclipse soundtrack was good, but knowing that Stephanie had a hand in picking the songs for Breaking Dawn, I knew it would be total rubbish.”

:: Laura Corn only saw the beauty in Adam Lambert Talks Fashion With Heidi Klum: “These two interviews were so much fun to watch. Adam, in my opinion, doesn’t give a bad interview, but the chemistry between Adam and Heidi was very cute, almost flirty. She calls him beautiful as do his fans, thank you very much.”

:: Alex thought Cudder put the “X” in “sexy” on Kid Cudi Shows Off His Nike Mags, Discusses Kiss With Male Fan On Conan: “Why is it that when a strong hot masculine man, even a rapper like in this case, admits to not having homophobic prejudices I feel like I’m in love with them? Lol See people there is definitely something sexy about a man, gay or straight or bi, that is so secure in his own skin that things like getting kisses from men doesn’t bother him and doesn’t make him feel weird or gay. Confidence = SEX.”

:: John was violator-ed by Susan Boyle’s Depeche Mode “Enjoy The Silence” Cover: Compare The Versions: “he best thing I can say about the cover is that it could have been much worse. It’s not bad, but unless you can do an amazing re-work of a masterpiece, just don’t do it. The only amazing thing for me is I now remember how boffable Dave Gahan was back in the day.”

:: Deborah Wilbanks seems to think Depeche Mode makes disco for some reason? Oh, well — people are people: “Susan did a much needed remake. Disco, if it’s not dead, it’s a smothered memory.”
