You Tried It: The Good, The Bad & The Tayvin Of This Week’s Reader Comments
Here were are again, folks. The end of the week. And honestly, we are still not over Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift‘s breakup. Is love even real? I don’t know.
Other than that, Gwen Stefani dropped her sultry new video for “Misery,” Justin Timberlake might be eyeing a Vegas residency and Kanye West proves that Cruel Winter is, indeed, on its way. Here at Idolator, we spoke to Ladyhawke and Kristin Kontrol, rated Rihanna and Mike WILL Made It‘s new banger “Nothing Is Promised,” and listed our latest roundup of emerging artists on New Sensations.
If you’re reading this, you probably already know what comes next. So without further ado, let’s go look at some of this week’s best and worst reader comments.
This Week’s Truth-Teller: Bruce Brothers
When Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris called it quits, this treasure said what everyone else was thinking.

Most Likely To Be Calvin’s (Or Taylor’s) Future Rebound: Ice Warrior
This bb wasn’t very surprised that Tayvin broke up. Rather, it sounded like he was pretty happy to hear the news: “‘What a shocker!” I say with sarcasm laced like venom between my teeth… but honestly, is anyone surprised?'”
Most Likely To Have His Own Vegas Residency: SoSaysDan
This star made some really great points on “Justin Timberlake Is Reportedly Negotiating A Las Vegas Residency.”
“Something tells me this will definitely happen. The funny thing is that it isn’t crazy at all. Vegas has always been an adult playground, so let’s not forget who the adults are right now. The 30-early 40 year old crowds that frequent Vegas’s electric streets grew up with NSYNC and Britney Spears. It honestly shocks me that the Backstreet Boys have yet to take up a lucrative residency, or for that matter Christina Aguilera. Her delusional manager fired shots at Britney claiming Christina’s career hasn’t “peaked” yet, but all shade throwing and jokes aside, Christina Aguilera hasn’t been able to sell a record let alone a full tour in over a decade. Meanwhile Britney is making literally millions of dollars.
A Las Vegas residency is a golden ticket for this generation of musicians. If you’ve got the hits to back it up, you’re almost crazy not to consider it. It’s constant promotion, constant butts in the seats, and it’s easier than touring BY FAR.
I look forward to seeing acts like Justin and Christina thrilling fans in Vegas”
Most Likely To Actually BE M. Night Shyamalan: Leonardo Valladares
While we thought Shura’s video for “What’s It Gonna Be” was very similar to the Breakfast Club, Leonardo brought up another really fitting comparison: “That’s some M. Night Shyamalan plot twist.”
The Shadiest Of Them All: James Fluker
And FINALLY – the shade de la shade of this week. This doll snatched all the wigs, slurped all the tea, and stirred every pot on “Gwen Stefani Smolders In New “Misery” Video: Watch” with this comment: “Lea Michele with a blonde dye job?”
