You Tried It: The Good, The Bad & The JoJo Of This Week’s Reader Comments
Women ruled the pop world this week, especially with Hillary Clinton becoming the official Democratic nominee in the 2016 presidential election. The DNC was teeming with amazing performances by Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry and Demi Lovato. JoJo teamed up with Wiz Khalifa for her new sultry track “Fuck Apologies,” the first single off her upcoming third album Mad Love. Mariah Carey graced the cover of Complex. Not to mention, here at Idolator, we spoke to Bishop Briggs about her tour with Coldplay and sat down with Nathan Sykes to talk about his upcoming album “Unfinished Business.”
And of course, our readers had a lot to say about what they loved (and didn’t love) in between. Let’s look at this week’s best and worst reader comments.

The return of JoJo has inspired all sorts of meta-feels among our readers.

And some of these feels have led to mighty claims.
Most Likely To Actually BE Psy: Swampbutte
When we revisited Psy‘s “Gangnam Style,” which still apparently gets 2 million hits daily, it tugged at the heartstrings of some.
“Gangnam Style is just simple fun and not some generic or pretentious b.s. It’s so different from all the usual trash that’s always coming out. Cookie-cutter, straight off the assembly line garbage is what today’s music is.Today’s music just sucks. The fact that people are still looking to Gangnam Style says a lot about the state of today’s music industry. No stand-out acts. Just boring, same-as-usual disposable music. Those songs aren’t going to be immortalized among the all-time greats. So forgettable…”
Truth Teller Of the Week: Jay Boom
Mariah Carey graced the latest cover of Complex, and some people noticed she looked a little, well, different.
Least Likely To Be Seen At A Flo Rida Show: Shane Morris
We called Flo Rida the King of Rap, and some of you took that a little too seriously…
