:: Wonton is a fan of Miley, as he expressed on Miley Cyrus Announces Happy Hippie Foundation To Benefit LGBT Youth, Backyard Sessions Featuring Ariana Grande & Others: “Miley Cyrus is such an innovator for this generation. I’ve practically fallen in love w/ everything she’s done (aside from those tacky ‘Bangerz’ tour tactics) or stood for as of lately.”
:: Leonardo Valladares commented on Mariah’s new tune on Mariah Carey’s “Infinity” Now Her Highest-Charting Single Since Miguel Pair-Up “Beautiful”: “You’re Mine (Eternal) was such an amazing single, and it flopped even though. I’m expecting Infinity to reach the Top 10. I love Mariah, but this single isn’t #1 material.”
:: Pablo Rodriguez shared his thoughts on Ciara’s ‘Jackie’: Album Review: “If she didn’t repeat one or two words every chorus… I would be able to appreciate the lyrics. The songs are lazy but she tries her best and there are some gems in the album i suppose. Definitely not a bad album but a solid 2.5-3. Good review!”
:: Jay had this to say on Ciara’s ‘Jackie’ Album: Review Revue: “The album is a bit of a disappointment from “Ciara.” Many of the songs just sound like variations of songs from that album, like “Overdose” or “One Night With You.” It’s not bad at all, better than her “Fantasy Ride” and “Basic Instinct” albums but definitely disappointing.”
:: He also threw slick shade on Paris Hilton’s “High Off My Love”: Listen To The Single That Started Off With A Nude Photo: I don’t think the song is going to be a hit, as is the case with pretty much everything she’s released in the last two years, but the song is decent. It’s something you could dance to or workout to. If people accept Paris Hilton’s music for what it is…which is just fun, party music, they would probably be able to tolerate it. People who don’t care for her will probably say it’s the most awful thing in the world. That’s just how people are because its Paris Hilton. People say she can’t sing….well neither can many popular artists either. I’ve heard WORSE songs currently on the radio and currently lodged in the Billboard Top 20 alone.”
:: Pop Aficionado had some sense on Pop Perspective: Britney Spears And Iggy Azalea’s “Pretty Girls” Reviewed By Idolator Editors: “If ‘Fancy’ didn’t happen, ‘Pretty Girls’ would still be just a vain, vapid song with an incredibly limp beat. With ‘Fancy’, it comes off as a sad attempt at aping a song that only survived based on the talents of its performers. Take Charli XCX off and shorten Iggy Azalea’s good flow and you get a flimsy song that doesn’t work.”
