  1. Not a coincidence she's so close to Randy, the worst Jackson after Janet.
  2. So ? Did she give the baby to Rebbie already ?
  3. Gaga's mother is already planning her tax reductions for next year i see.
  4. Sorry. i meant Fartpopist.
  5. Yesterday while i was waiting for the movie to start at the theater, they played paparazzi since i never listened to that song since it was released it took me a moment to remember it was her singing because her voice was completly different. No yelling, a lot of overdubs and layers....she sounded like Britney almost. It's like she was a totally different artist then, she must have lost a lot of fans from then because her voice went from pop friendly to grating oversinging.
  6. Who else can say they stayed fresh and relevant and #1 working with the same people for 15 years? at the top of my head : Sade, Kate Bush, Pj Harvey...but mostly because they are their own producers.
  7. I don't think she's desperate, i think in pop music Madonna is THE reference for the pop girls AND A&R within the music industry, they think Madonna's longevity is only due to reinventing herself that's why they aply this recipe to the new pop girls when Madonna's longevity is not due to a recipe but from Madonna being Madonna. I did not imply Katy shouldn't be political at all, i think that's the genuine part in her, it's the image that does not feel genuine. I think "Witness" demo leaked last year and i thought it was a really good change (i don't know if it still sounds the same, i doubt it because the demo sounded more like a track to end an album than to start it) but all the new tracks don't sound like the Witness demo at all. When Madonna did Vogue she was hanging out with Jose & Luis from the house of xtravaganza, she was going to the clubs, when Katy does house and have all these voguers and drag queens it feels like a stunt just like when gaga did it during Artpop. What i meant is you can't duplicate a recipe, you must find your own, that is what brings longevity.
  8. I never liked her stuff but i always thought she was a nice girl and harmless but this era doesn't click. It does not look genuine but fabricated. All these girls and their staff don't get it. They follow Madonna's recipe when Madonna inhabited her different incarnations, they never looked like a costume she was putting on but rather something coming from within her. It was organic. Maybe because Madonna was not merely applying a recipe but exploring another aspect of her personality. It does not work for everybody and some of these girls should rather stay who they are and explore it to build an image that fits them. Madonna is a chameleon and they are not. A lot of popstars never changed their image and keep releasing stuff with great success because they have their own recipe like Sade or Björk. Katy is using Gary Numan's and the new romantics image but it does not fit her neither does it fit the music. She does not appear as desperate as gaga who lost herself into characters before building one herself hence why she completly imploded, Katy tries too hard this time. To me it only highlights how much Madonna was genuine in her incarnations, they felt natural and logical, they reflected where she was in her life each time she changed rather than trying to chang just for the sake of changing because she has a strong personality that never got overtaken by her new image.she owned her image not the contrary.
  9. growing up i would have killed myself if my mom liked what i was listening to.....even what my sisters liked was toxic to me.
