  1. Does she not realise that 99% of people couldn't pick her out of a line up? No one gives a fuck about your hair.
  2. No Kylie video in the UK has been as big as the biggest Madonna videos. Don't forget that Madonna is huge over here too. The biggest Kylie video in terms of iconic imagery is probably Can't Get You Out Of My Head but that's still nothing on Like A Prayer or maybe even Hung Up.
  3. Ariana has better vocals and better streaming, Taylor had better songwriting and physical sales. But Taylor appeals to more demographics with her music. Maybe all the stuff about her decline after 1989 was overhyped. It's hard to ever be as big as that album but she's still above everyone else. Ari and Taylor are the biggest pop girls in the world right now. Way ahead of the new gals coming into the scene and the likes of Katy, Gaya and Rih these days. But Taylor is definitely ahead of Ariana too.

    Emeli and Jessie were pushed way too hard too early in the UK. The BBC and others picked up on them and their music was inescapable on radio, TV and even the Olympic closing ceremony in 2012. It was way too much exposure for them after just one album and the GP got tired of them before it came round to album two. It seemed like they were desperate for Emeli to take Adele's position when she was on maternity and for Jessie to be a UK pop girl on the lever of Rihanna and Katy when they were slaying at that time. Duffy is kinda similar. She had a huge debut with two but hits and lots of acclaim/awards. But a weak lead single for her second album and a bad commercial for Diet Coke was enough to turn the public on her. Those girls are all warning signs for what happens when labels/media try to shove an artist down people's throats way too much. I also don't think the material lived up to the hype in many cases either.

    Yes, she was bigger immediately after the release of her album than when she's been on tour. Very insightful.

    This is like Sophie's Choice. Both are great albums. Carly's is more focused but I think Taylor's might have more high points for me? All I can say for sure is that Jack Antonoff did THAT
  7. Genuinely the crime of the century. Like, up there with the Iraq War.
  8. Can't believe this is even a question. Kylie and Mariah might have some nice videos here and there but Madonna videos were genuine cultural events. She had more iconic videos in 1989 than the other two have in their whole careers.
  9. Cheryl's Pride performance ENDED Madame Tussaud's
  10. People need to realise that celebrity endorsements don't really matter that much in elections except I guess to motivate people who were always going to support that candidate anyway
  11. I was at the show and a girl fainted just in front of me about five minutes before Ariana came on. Everyone had their phone lights on to try and direct the paramedics. It was very dramatic. On one hand I wanted the girl to be ok but I also wanted them to clear her out quickly so I wouldn't miss the show... Ariana's vocals were on point and she made a really nice speech to the crowd about how much Pride and being back in Manchester meant to her. She closed the set with a beautiful acoustic version of One Last Time.

    I was at Manchester Pride last night and Cheryl's performance was incredible. All the hits, Girls Aloud megamix and her dancing was on point. Here's how she finished the set:

    Is there a chance that she's getting a bit of extra praise because the song was written by Ariana? So she's obviously going to boost it and her friends will too.
  14. Really nice album. I need a few more listens but I feel like it's one I'll certainly be repeating. It's put me in a really nice mood. The little spoken outro at the end of the album was pretty corny though...
  15. I've only listened through once but the album has put me in a great mood for the day. Need a few more listens to gauge out best songs etc. but the first impression is good.
