  1. They really outsold Adore and Be My Baby like that omfg Definitely one of their best by far The lyrics (that Ariana helped write btw!), the production, Ariana's angelic voice, omfg it's all so great What do you all think?
  2. I mean honestly I will only stream it cause WHO plays records anymore but I will probably buy it anyways
  4. Multiple fans are getting this in the mail today. Temoin means "Witness" in French. Is KP4 called Witness? Are we getting Witness and Bon Appetit Friday? What does the no dairy on the cream mean? She tweeted it last night as well. I AM SHOOK. DISCUSS
  5. I thought we needed a thread to confess the artists we started to stan in 2016 and the ones we fell-out of stan. edit: I've added 2017 to the title to continue this thread into the New Year. For me: I dropped Cher Lloyd. Since leaving EPIC, she sucks.
  6. Post your unpopular Kylie opinions here and drag each other! Dangerous Game isn't that good Aphrodite isn't good either Kylie (1988) is actually good Some Kind of Bliss doesn't deserve the hate it gets Cowboy Style doesn't deserve the love it gets
  7. Which pressed Ari stan wrote this though? I mean I love her but more relevant then Katy and Taylor? How is Ariana Grande, a perennial top ten artist, still underrated? By Kate Robertson April 26, 2017 Kate Robertson on why Ariana Grande is more relevant than Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Fifth Harmony combined. Ariana Grande is incredible. Criminally underrated and often overlooked, her potential to be recognised as pop music’s It Girl has consistently been overshadowed by the more iconic players in the game. She’s always there, lurking around the top 10 and on all of the red carpets, but never quite in the capacity she deserves. She’s been surrounding herself with the right people since making the leap from Nickelodeon to grown-up stardom, and has been nailing it ever since. So, in light of the recent announcement she’ll be gracing us with her presence later this year (*screams with excitement*), now seems an ideal time to lay a case for why Ariana is 10,000 times more relevant than Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Fifth Harmony combined. She’s remained relevant since 2013 Staying hip and cool is the nemesis of pop stars the world over. It’s a feat so unachievable that, if reached, you can be guaranteed a place in the spotlight and an invite to the VMAs for all of eternity. Rihanna pulled it off by churning out records year on year from 2008 thru 2012, Drake got himself there by leaching into every device and platform you have access to, and Ariana is looking set to be the next member of the club. So how did she do it? Through consistency. She’s been grinding away on the super-mega-pop star periphery for the past four years, and it’s reached a point where her presence is expected. Even more impressively, her music has also remained relevant. Remember when she did that song with MIKA in 2013? ‘Popular Song’? It was terrible and amazing all at once and had a hook so catchy it drove you mad. Listening back today the song wouldn’t sound out of place on the Hot 100. As for one of her most successful hits, ‘Love Me Harder’, that was released in 2014! Three whole years ago! Girlfriend is aging better than a fine wine and that is something we should be shouting from the rooftops. That voice It is a scientifically proven fact that 100% of people who have seen Ariana Grande perform live have uttered to the person next to them some version of, ‘But how does that voice come from such a small person!?’ It’s a voice that can only be likened to ’90s pop queen Celine Dion, but one that might one day pay even greater dividends. Sure, Celine has won a bunch of Academy Awards and Grammys, but she was also writing songs that were pretty damn beige and was never a popstar in the whole and complete sense of the word. It’s here that Ariana has and will continue to capitalise, and when she one day has her own Vegas residency, we will laugh at the fact we ever thought it was a good idea to give one to Britney Spears. She made trash pop videos cool There is nothing chill about Ariana Grande. She’s got a big voice, a big stage presence, big shoes and big hair. She’s extra in the most far-reaching way, but it’s a special kind of extra that never translates as intimidating or ego-centric, rather a dedication to her craft and her brand. It’s this wonderfully packaged brand she’s built her empire on that can be seen best represented in her many big budget music videos. She’s got fourteen official music videos under her belt, and not one of them is a dud. There’s 2013’s ‘Right There’ featuring Big Sean that serves as a remake of Baz Luhrmann’s instantly recognisable masquerade ball from Romeo + Juliet, there’s the Star Wars-esque video for ‘Break Free’, and more recently she’s worked alongside music video It Girl Hannah Lux Davis on several videos. These are not only Ariana’s best (‘Focus’, ‘Into You’ and ‘Side To Side’), but have also cemented Davis as the go-to for big music videos that match the big artists behind them. The best part about all of these high drama, borderline sci-fi videos is they don’t try to be anything more than a trashy pop video. This isn’t Justin Bieber trying to become the next Jason Statham, or yet another lazy The Chainsmokers lyric video. Each video creates a different utopian world people that might actually want to escape to. The king of pop(songwriting) is her number one credit Some might call working alongside iconic hitmaker Max Martin cheating. The way I see it, working with such a mad scientist is working with someone who knows your music better than you know it yourself. It’s pure genius. Writing flawless pop music is a fine art, an art some of the most technically skilled musicians shouldn’t even touch. Writing your own pop songs doesn’t carry the same kind of weight that it does across other genres, so as Ariana has done, chucking your name on a couple of co-writes here and there is more than enough. You should also always buy the best you can afford, and if you can afford Max Martin you’d be crazy not to tap into the infinite well of knowledge. And those features… Ariana doesn’t toy around with nobodies. Only the best for our girl, and by the best I mean world class. Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Childish Gambino, The Weeknd, oh, and the absolute legend who all of us plebs know as MACY GRAY! This point doesn’t need any further explanation. A woman who can do both Is there a better role model to demonstrate that you can be a feminist while also actively embracing femininity than Ariana Grande? This is a rhetorical question, but if you’re a mansplainer and it went right over your head, the answer is no. She’s quick-witted, intelligent, and can talk her way out of any inappropriate questions from sexist radio pigs in a way that plays them for absolute fools. Thigh high boots and catsuits aren’t what feminism looks like for a lot of people, but there’s value in young people being able to look at her and know that they won’t be shunned for not meeting old-fashioned expectations of what a feminist should look like. If your daughters and nieces have posters of seemingly ‘wholesome’ pop stars on their walls you should remove them immediately. Remove them and replace them with an Ariana Grande A1 (I got mine from Real Groovy for $20, bargain), because that woman is a better role model than 95% of people in the spotlight right now. End of. Ariana Grande plays Spark Arena (!) in Auckland on Saturday 2 September 2017.

  8. On Billboard I always love these articles because they give a nice sneak peak of how gifted of a songwriter Taylor is Also kiii at "And that chorus -- it’s impossible to sing! I don’t know how she did it. Well, I mean, she’s young and she has a great voice. But the high-reaching [parts of the chorus]… usually I just stop and let the audience sing it. I’m like, “Y’all take this, I can’t do it!”" One of Taylor Swift's secret weapons in her early hit-making days was Nashville songwriting veteran Liz Rose, who co-wrote a number of Swift's best and biggest early hits, including "Teardrops on My Guitar," "White Horse" and "You Belong With Me." The latter went all the way to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and established the country star as a major pop player. "It’s really fun to start a song, and you can just hand it to the room, and they all start singing it," Rose tells Billboard of the enduring smash, whose explosive shout-along refrain we just named the 20th-best chorus of the entire 21st century. "You don’t get many songs like that." After Swift wrote third album Speak Now entirely on her own, she and Rose only collaborated once more -- on 2012's Red highlight "All Too Well" -- but the latter has remained an in-demand country and pop songwriter, even winning a Grammy in 2016 for her work on Little Big Town's surprise crossover hit "Girl Crush." Rose spoke to Billboard about her memories of co-penning (and later performing) one of Swift's early signature hits. Was the chorus the first part of the song that came together? We always started at the beginning. It just flowed out, honestly. She’s so fast. And Taylor kind of knew -- she came in with [sings] “You’re on the phone with your girlfriend…” And it just kind of flowed into that chorus. Are there individual strengths that you and Taylor have as co-songwriters, where you put your emphasis on one part and she does another? We were always back-and-forth. She comes in with the story and the melody -- I truly believe that she heard the production in that song while we wrote it. And that song always amazes me, because when I do writers’ night and I try to play it, I always make the audience sing it -- or I make girls get up to sing it. And that chorus -- it’s impossible to sing! I don’t know how she did it. Well, I mean, she’s young and she has a great voice. But the high-reaching [parts of the chorus]… usually I just stop and let the audience sing it. I’m like, “Y’all take this, I can’t do it!” Was there a part of the chorus that once it came together, you guys knew you were good to go? Oh, man, just the way it flowed so fast. And I loved the way that it was [only] half of the chorus the first time -- have you noticed that? I just think that was so cool, the way we did that. It does seem like something you guys did a number of times together -- where the chorus does shift as the song goes on, and by the third chorus, there’s a key word or phrase that gets turned on its head a little. What do you think the power of doing that is? It makes you want to stay until the end of the song. And I think that it makes a song more personal. It does it in [Fearless single] “White Horse,” and it does it in “You Belong With Me.” It just makes the listener feel like the writer and the artist care about the song -- that they’re like, “Okay, you’ve heard it, but wait a minute -- ‘cause I want you know that this really affected me, I’m gonna dig the knife in just a little bit deeper.” We were never through writing a song until we were through writing a song. Until the last line. I noticed listening to the song recently that it almost sounds like a ‘90s rock song, the way the verses explode into the chorus. Was that something you guys were intentionally going for, or just how it came together? I think it was there when we were writing it. We wrote it, like, the day before she cut it. And she, I believe, wanted to make sure she’d written everything she could write for the record before she finished cutting it. So I think she came in wanting to write an up-tempo [number], and came in with that story, wanting to write this really fun, fast, driving song. And you can hear it in the guitar, in the work tape. Do you think this is the best chorus you and Taylor ever did together? Absolutely. When I go out and do it -- when I don’t even have to sing it [Laughs] -- it’s pretty awesome! There’s a lot of joy in it. It’s really fun to do live, it’s really fun to watch young girls to 50-year-old women get up and sing it. Do you have a favorite chorus of the 21st century, or a song that comes to mind when think of a great 21st-century chorus? Oh, gosh. Well “Girl Crush,” of course. [Laughs.] But that I didn’t write? Taylor’s song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” I mean, that song is amazing. And [Florida Georgia Line's] “Cruise.” Think about what “Cruise” did, with FGL. Just that it makes you want to sing it, whether you’re a fan of theirs or not, it doesn’t matter. That song, it had a big impact on country music. And “Mama’s Broken Heart,” Miranda [Lambert], that Kacey [Musgraves] wrote. There’s some great ones.
  9. Do you guys think any of her songs from one album could potentially fit on another? I think Kylie and Enjoy Yourself are pretty much the same so you could swap around songs and you'd never know the difference lol. Except EY is a lot more fillerish I also think Butterfly could have potentially fit on Impossible Princess if the production was a bit more stripped back and less poppy and club influenced.
  10. Well? Have any songs grown on you? Have any songs you used to love you now hate? Does it still taste about the same? Discuss!
  11. So I'm sure there's obviously been a thread like this made before but people's tastes change over time and I'm sure there's new people to participate! What is your trinity (top 3) songs from "Speak Now"?
  12. Radio station confirms Ariana on Bon Appetit! Coming this Friday! For some reason I'm still not 100% confident it but it certainly makes it so much more plausible and Katy will have MAJOR backlash if Ari's not on it.

    Here is my story of what turned out to be a lovely night at a great new restaurant! I head been hearing about this restaurant for MONTHS and I was oh so excited to give it a try. The atmosphere was so lively but for some reason everyone didn't know what was going on. I sat down at my table and looked at the funky but weird decor all around me. This was not what I expected from booking my reservation. My waiter finally came out and I ordered what I thought would be a delicious meal! The only option was a surprise meal, so I ordered that and started expectantly waiting. After being told it was 5 minutes away it was swapped to 10 minutes then back to 5. I was getting impatient before I heard that my plate had been thrust out of the kitchen. As I saw the waiter walking towards me, I heard gasps of horror and tumultuous screams arising from the other tables. "What could it be?" I thought. Finally, the waiter plopped something on my table. I looked down and saw THIS. "WHAT IS THIS?" I shouted. "Surely this is not what I ordered! There must be a mistake. No one would ever be pleased with this!" I looked around as customers started to flee. This restaurant was doomed to go out of business if meals like this continued. My waiter looked down before gasping. "What was I thinking? Why would I ever think this was acceptable to bring to a customer?" He grabbed my plate and ran off crying as customers fled thi scene.My stomach was still set on a delicious meal, so I waited patiently for my waiter to come back. Finally, I heard sighs of relief and exclamations of joy coming from the surviving tables around me as my meal was brought to the table. I looked down and feasted my eyes on THIS masterpiece. "IT'S BEAUTIFUL!" I exclaimed. All the customers oohed and ahhed before ordering plates of their on. This restaurant went on to become one of the most successful restaurants of all time!! And to think it could have ended because of a fatal but accidental mistake. While my plate still had three unwanted, randomly placed elements I still thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely order it again! Overall: a 10/10 dining experience!

    Shine the light on my scalp Perfection is a diesease of a flop But you cant fix what you cant shade Its the irrelevance that needs a surgery DO YOU GUYS LOVE THIS SONG OR WHAT!!!! ITS SO GOOD!! Pretty Hurts is iconic, made me cry when i heard it, so here is my dedication thread
  15. Kittens, just saw this video. What do you all think? The Britney thing was not funny, I agree. But like..accusing her of homophobia in Ur So Gay. I, as a gay dude, didn't get it as using "gay" as an insult. And the whole cultural appropriation thing..jeez..I have the feeling that the only offended ones are western white people who don't even belong to that culture or sexual orientation. She got accused using a racist set for her UNCLE performance at the AMAs. There was this japanese guy who asked people in Japan if they think it's racist, and a whole lot of them were not offended at all. Can't find the video for now, but I will research it

  21. For Michael. i believe i found out he died the 26th of June at my uncle's house. I was in mu uncle's bedroom when the news person was talking about how the media is reacting strongly to his death. It was really unbelieveable, even when i saw how sick he looked around his last years. For Prince, I had just gotten home from a trip and i went in billboard news and the entire page was a picture of Prince saying "Prince Dies at 57". I was literally stunned. I just ast there, mouth open for a few seconds, then searched up if it was true, though I new Billboard wouldnt lie about that. As for Whitney, i found out through my friends at school the monday after she died. i didnt have cable around the time so i wasnt watching the news. My friends came by my locker, looking at each other nervously and they said, like almost in unison, "Uh, you know Whitney's dead, right?" I froze, like literally. I could feel tears and i immediatly began remebering the last song i heard of her before she died: My Love is Your Love. I was sad for a real long time after that. So how about you guys?
  22. Because lets be real, it's not the most radio friendly song It's definitely not the most television friendly song How do y'all expect it to be half bleeped out and still "smash" Y'all aiming for Everyday as the next single need to reassess because that song would flop for high filth and that's just the tea
  23. "A soft song" with a pillow like chain restaurant drop WHAT THE HECK DOES THIS EVEN MEAN. AND WHY DOES IT REMIND ME OF THAT SNIPPET I was here for a banger with some weird technical sounds. I still have high hopes though come through Ari and Cashmere.
