  3. 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.

  5. 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?
  6. 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
  7. Discussion "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.
  8. 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.
  9. TROLLING GONE WRONG for BAD GAL RIRI? Last night pop star Rihanna was forced to change a caption of a photoshopped picture of Queen Elizabeth she posted on Instagram... It all started Saturday night when RiRi began inexplicably posting photos of Queen Elizabeth's head on top of her body. So what was the offending caption you say? Lyrics from Gucci Mane's Both ft. Drake. Peep it below. After the caption change Rihanna posted this:
  10. 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

    Either American Life, Hard Candy, or MDNA is her single worst album, or that either Like a Prayer, Bedtime Stories, or Ray of Light is her single best album? It seems as though almost everybody counts one of those three as her lowest/highest point. Any outsiders?
  15. Kind of an interesting story of the back end of things Also, she kind of shades her a bit “In the case of Ariana, we had her signed since she was 16 and we tried a lot of different styles of music and the truth is her voice sounded better on urban-ish leaning records -- more Mariah Carey than a Katy Perry -- but she didn’t necessarily have pop taste in music and always shied away from what were her biggest singles. “So in the case of ‘Bang Bang,’ she didn’t really want to cut it and I said, ‘You don’t have to cut it.’ In my mind, I knew the record was a smash and as an A&R person, you never let a hit record leave the building, so that record was not going to RCA, it was not going to Epic [laughs]. It was not going anywhere else. “So I started sending it to other artists. I sent it to Nicki Minaj and she loved it. We sent it to Jessie J; she loved it. So I cut both of them on it and then sent it back to Ariana. I kept her voice on the second verse and all of a sudden she got it. She was like, “Oh my God, you’re right; this is huge.’ So sometimes it’s a little working in the background or behind their back to make it great.” And if Grande had hated it? asked Newman, “It would’ve come out on Jessie J’s album,” Goldstein says. “We’re animals,” she explained. “We never let a hit leave and if she really kicked and screamed about being on the second verse, we would have put someone else on the second verse. I think she still regretted it because in the end it became a standalone entity, even thought it was on her second album [My Everything] as a bonus record — and it was on Jesse’s record [Sweet Talker] but we also had Nicki signed through Cash Money — it became its own entity as far as royalties and how it was listed. “So she never got 100 percent credit for it, had it been Ariana featuring Jessie J. and Nicki. So she learned a little from that.”
  16. There has been a lot of speculation that Katy collabed with Ariana for KP4 when those sticker things were released and it showed Ariana's bunny ears. Then Katy released the name to Bon Appetit and not too long after, rumors started flying around saying that Ariana was featured on that song. Some industry insiders even stated that the two had a collab. Then Katy released the snippet of the song and people claimed to hear some Ariana vocals in the background. However some felt those vocals belonged to Katy and they were just vocal stems. Ariana then posted a picture of her dog with the caption "Bon Appetit" which Katy liked, leading many to speculate that that was them hinting at the collab, however many felt it was just people reaching. So what do you think of this potential collab? Are you here for these two certified hit makers releasing a song together or should it be a solo Katy track? Discuss!
  17. Rih has pretty much explored every field in terms of music genres and business. However, she never dabbled into the disco field. Would you like to see R9 be an album with disco influences? Will Rihanna have her 'I will survive'?

    So, what if ... The Cure was actually for a remixed version of Joanne? I know, I know, it most likely isn't, but how would you feel about it?

  23. Lady Gaga is back. After the lukewarm performance of her ARTPOP album in 2013, most people were ready to write the former pop and dance music sensation off...But today, Lady Gaga is back in full force. Her latest album, Joanne, sold over a half million copies in the U.S. in a few short weeks; she’s headlining Coachella; and she has been named the new face of Tiffany and Co." Lady Gaga took five actions that show companies how to make a comeback: 1. Acknowledge the need to change. 2. Introduce innovation that leverage your core strength. 3. Target your appeal. 4. Prompt reconsideration with high-profile, on-brand actions. 5. Build a loyal community before you need it.
