Idolator Staff | June 24, 2016 5:02 pm

We made it to the end of the work week. Hallelujah!

Let’s recap: Fall Out Boy & Missy Elliott put out a tragic version of the Ghostbusters theme song, Lindsay Lohan is thinking about dropping a new album, Troye Sivan released a remix of “Wild” featuring Alessia Cara and Sky Ferreira addressed the sexist LA Weekly column that focused on her sex appeal. Meanwhile, here at Idolator, we spoke with rising duo Marian Hill, recapped the 18 best pop albums of 2006 and looked back at Nelly Furtado‘s epic third studio album, Loose.

But enough about us. Let’s get to this week’s best and worst reader comments.

The Sassafrass: Harlan Greenstein

Yes, the new Ghostbusters theme song is terrible. And this sassy star had something to say about it: “Oh ummmmm…!!! I guess someone’s rent is really due!!!..”

LiLoh’s Biggest Fan: Yasmany Lopez

This doll was super excited about the potential of a new Lindsay album.

2006 Pop Music’s Biggest Stan: ElectrikBlue

This treasure professed his love for 2006 pop music, since he only began to truly appreciate it recently.

“I totally agree, 2006 was a fantastic year in music, specifically for pop. I actually despised pop music growing up, but this year changed my mind. Pop was becoming more rhythmic and taking elements from the house/electronic music I grew up on. Nelly Furtado’s album “Loose” album is what really drew me in, while Christina’s “Back to Basics” became one of those albums I LOVE from start to finish. What’s great about this year is the balance of new talent, reinvented artists, as well as well established artists who had already scored big hits in the past. Nowadays it’s limited to about 4 artists to deliver what’s popular.”

Not to mention, many others were of the same opinion.

Truth-Teller Of The Week: MattP

Matt said what everyone else was thinking on “Sky Ferreira Gives Crass ‘L.A. Weekly’ Column About Her Undeserved Acknowledgement With Long Series Of Tweets.”

“I’ve read the guy’s piece…he was REALLY out of line. He clearly has a creepy early eighties Madonna fetish and was projecting that on Sky. Now what Sky needs to do is channel her righteous fury into a pop rock feminist banger and unleash that beast upon the world as the lead single to Masochism.”

And finally…

Nelly’s Disciple: Alonso
