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!
:: Crissy Y defended Mariah Carey on Mariah Carey Shades Ariana Grande And Nicki Minaj In Amazing Radio Interview: Watch: “Soul wise: comparing ariana to mariah is like comparing mariah to Aretha franklin. And just fyi, you are one of those few people who get butt hurt watching her interviews bc you dont get her sense of humor which is also just an act. The only reason she has to talk about other people is bc interviewers bring them up. 99% she praises them especially the people she worked with including Whitney, Patti, Aretha, and in her new Hallmark film Lacey chabert”
:: Luke Palm was a fan on Taylor Swift’s “Out Of The Woods” Video: Watch The Effects-Filled Visual: “I relate to this song more than I should admit. The emotional journey of a stormy relationship and its breakup, represented in this visual where Taylor finds herself trapped within her emotions, which eventually leads to her finding her light. Oh, and actually her dress ends up pretty torn up, how much’ve you been drinkin’? Hahaha”
:: James was shady on Beyoncé To Reportedly Write & Star In Saartjie Baartman Biopic: “Hmmmm, who is she gonna have write this for her and then take credit for it?”
:: As was Thomas Alex Dugrosprez on Sia’s “Reaper”: Listen To The Kanye West Collaboration: “Are we still pretending to like the new Sia songs? This ain’t good.”
:: Panayiotis Kyriacou made us chuckle on Justin Timberlake Is Dropping New Music Later This Year: “Saw the title on the sitefront and cheerfully squeaked “Yes!”, then read the first line of the post :(”
:: N.C. Brandon wasn’t a fan on Fall Out Boy & Demi Lovato Pay Homage To *NSYNC In “Irresistible” Video: Watch: “The lyrics to this song are so cheesy: “You’re like second hand smoke, I don’t know what you’re doing to me” “I’m gonna get you to burst, like if you were a bubble” 10/10 FOR SONGWRITING X”
:: Scholarx3 was #TeamXtina on The 20 Most Anticipated Pop Albums Of 2016 Readers’ Poll: Vote For Your Favorite: “Christina Aguilera’s potential seems to be one of the most frustrating puzzles to solve in the music industry. I hope they figure it out in 2016. I’m looking forward to an album with darn good songs. That’s all she needs to catapult her back into pop relevance. There’s no denying how wildly successful she already is, but many of her fans believe her best songs are yet to be made. If Aguilera delivers an album that combines her undeniable vocals with top notch production, inescapable hooks, and gorgeous melodies, 2016 could be her year.”
