Jess Glynne's 'I Cry When I Laugh': Album Review
We know that she's a stellar songwriter but does her debut live up to the hype?

We’ve finally reached the weekend, Idolator readers! The past few days were filled with major music moments, which kicked off with Budweiser’s Made In America 2015 festival!

Idolator favorites like Beyonce, Nick Jonas and The Weeknd gave killer performances, and Queen Bey had everyone talking with her Ronda Rousey speech-infused setlist.

Little Mix unveiled their Get Weird tracklist, while Selena Gomez dropped her “Same Old Love” tune and Revival tracklistTinashe dropped her Young Thug-assisted “Party Favors” single, and Lana Del Rey released Honeymoon‘s “Music To Watch Boys To.” Lastly, Madonna kicked off her Rebel Heart World Tour in Montreal and Grace Jones unapologetically called out all of your pop star faves in her new memoir.

In the Idolator offices, we reviewed Leona Lewis‘ I Am and Jess Glynne’I Cry When I Laugh albums and interviewed Allie X once more as well as Duran Duran.

And of course, our readers spoke their minds on the going-ons in the frantic music world. Read some of the best and shadiest comments below!

:: Jay is ready for Gwen Stefani‘s comeback on Gwen Stefani Is Making Progress On That Long-Overdue Third LP: “I Have Close To Ten Songs”: “As long as it’s better than ‘Spark the Fire’ and ‘Baby Don’t Lie,’ I’m good. I’m ready for Gwen and No Doubt (if their album comes out anytime soon as well) to take over the charts like they used to.”

:: He also had this quip on Selena Gomez Bares It All For Her ‘Revival’ Album: See The Revealing Cover: “You know pop stars are grown up and mature when they start showing more skin. it’s practically obligated.”

:: musicklova went in on Azealia Banks “Sort Of” Agrees With Donald Trump’s Politics, Rapidly Backtracks After Backlash: “Okay, first off why ‘occasional rapper…’??? That’s what annoys me. At least Azealia makes some valid points when she speaks but the white media twist it around so much. What she’s saying : Africans were too nice in the past and let the white people into their land ( and look what has happened) When the white people went to Asia they told them ‘we’ll trade you goods and then you can get out’. She also goes onto say that she isn’t against immigration ( bc that’s all America has been) However, it does need to be controlled and regulated. Don’t make her the monster. At least she’s true to herself and isn’t a silicone stuffed/Max martin produced clone.”

:: Jess88 had a specific request on Pink Releasing New ‘Ellen’ Theme Song “Today’s The Day” As A Single Later This Week: “I refuse to purchase her tunes until she grows out that bullcut.”

:: Ice Warrior brought up a moment we all forgot about on Selena Gomez Broke Justin Bieber’s Heart So Now He Just Wants To Cuddle: “I’m sure that hooker in Brazil agrees too”

:: Thomas Alex Dugrosprez was slightly shady on Britney Spears Is Shooting A New Music Video: “And thus, ‘Pretty Girls’ finds its righteous place: as a deluxe edition bonus b-side.”

:: …And wrapped up with this rightful campaign on Bruno Mars Has An Offer To Be Super Bowl 50’s Halftime Headliner (Again): “#CHER4SUPERBOWL2K15”
