  1. And she's just as vapid and hollow as her too. But at least Mariah had a voice. That allowed her to float along longer than she should've. Now she's nothing but sparkling wine drinking puffer fish. Taylor is keeping her country audience tucked in her back pocket. It's why she doesn't take a stand on anything. She'll need them after her inevitable fall from the pop charts. Then she'll release an album that will be promoted as "going back to her roots" 🙄
  2. Swish, Swish should've been the 2nd single with a big radio push and video release. I love Bon Appetite but I can absolutely see why it didn't do well. The video is about cannibalism for Christ's sake. This song never should've been released as a single. Not with gems like Deja Vu, Roulette, Tsunami, and Witness on the album. Swish Swish could've been the Dark Horse of this era. It's funky, it's got a KILLER chorus, and it's quotable. Shameful that it didn't do better.
  3. I don't know, that district just couldn't overcome its republican lean. Once again, the pollsters underestimated how many republicans would come out to vote, and she won by a larger margin. There weren't enough democrats and independents to push him over the top. What the democrats need to stop doing is courting republicans. That's how he lost. The DNC and his campaign were banking on republicans deflecting and moving over to vote for Osoff but they're not giving up on their supreme leader. Not yet anyway. This is exactly how Hillary lost. Stop banking on republicans to come to their 'senses' over Trump. They're either willfully delusional fucks who worship his alter, or their just turning the other cheek with their hands over their ears pretending nothing is happening. So, you're right in the sense that democrats need to go ever harder at him, but I don't agree that a progressive firebrand would've won this district. At least not yet.
  4. I think the album is pure GOLD. It's so refreshing when you compare it to what's on the radio right now. She's easily one of the most interesting pop stars out there right now in terms of what she's releasing. She's holding on to her signature sound yet modifying it just enough to show progress and growth. The Louvre, Homemade Dynamite, Hard Feelings/Loveless are my faves. Perfection.
  5. Tweeting about a daily tracking poll in which had him down 14 points a week ago. He probably got a 'bump' in this poll for not acting like a petulant child after the DC shooting. And today, Rasmussen has him down 3. So he can fuck off. He's so repulsive.
  6. The album is a total smash in my opinion. It kind of reminds me of Confessions in a weird way. There's a trance-y, spacey, trippy flow to it that I just get lost in, much like I do with Confessions. I'm surprised to see Deja' Vu isn't getting more love. It's been on repeat for days. I don't think she made this album to be the monster hit that Teenage Dream or Prism were. In fact, I don't think she EVER thought Teenage Dream would be what is was. That was an organic smash that came out at the right time. Whereas Prism was almost try-to-hard in my opinion. No, I think she made this for herself. This sounds more authentic, as an album, than anything she's released.
  7. So, this shooting yesterday on the baseball field by a Bernie Sanders volunteer and supporter who singled out republicans. And, predictably, they're beginning to blame democrats for their <GASP> 'toxic rhetoric'. Give me a fucking break. Hannity, Beck, Coulter, Yiannopoulos, Limbaugh, Alex Jones, and the like have been bathing in toxicity for decades and spewing some of the most vile, hate filled speech I've ever heard. I have NEVER heard progressives sound even close to these pieces of shit. And the fact republicans are against any kind of common sense gun control on just about any level just puts the cherry on top of the cake. I have sympathy for those involved in this incident, but I think it's pretty obvious where this 'toxic' brand of politics originated from. And it wasn't from the left.
  8. Well, there's just one more reason that I love her. You know a 'real' Madonna fan from a casual one who just throws out Material Girl or Like A Virgin.
  9. Wow. I never knew that live performance existed. What a beautiful performance. What a beautiful song. I love Annie Lennox, but agree that she lost her spark after Diva. I actually LOVED Medusa though and thought she did an incredible job with some of those covers. I feel like she really made them her own. Medusa and Tori Amos's Strange Little Girls are how you DO an album of covers. Bare had a few good songs on it, but left me cold. Songs of Mass Destruction was just weak. On a side note,Bram Stoker's Dracula is easily one of my favorite horror movies of all time. I just love it.
  10. This is easily her best, most cohesive album. I'm loving the dark undertones to it. Finally, more depth from her as an artist. This will easily be one of my most played albums of the summer.
  11. This quote reminded me of this classic line lol.
  12. Historically, this testimony would've brought any other presidency crashing down. But I doubt republicans have the dignity to move forward with any kind consequences.
  13. I think 30 is as low as it'll go. There are a SOLID 30% of this country who are TRULY enamored with this man and he'll never lose their support. So, it's Comey Day in Washington. I'm not holding my breath for any kind of bombshell today. The RNC is already offering a rapid fire counter attack. But who knows, every day there's some kind of fresh surprise.
  14. What a piece of shit article. I mean, complete and total garbage. It's such an 'Oh, we miss our cute, cuddly, fluffy Katy' bunch of nonsense. And this whole 'cultural appropriation' has worn thin. It's part of the reason we have this madman in the White House. People were tired of being called RACIST all the fucking time and he tapped into that. You can't even eat tacos anymore without some white, spoiled, hipster screaming 'CULTURAL APPROPRIATION!!!' This album isn't going to be a smash by any means, and sure, she the promotion could've been better, but holy shit.....what an unnecessary pile on she's getting this era. It's like her Erotica without even a fraction of the bite.
  15. Well that's certainly his Mariah Carey 'I don't know her' moment. And that was totally organic. He didn't even hesitate. I know not everyone's a fan, but I've always loved Seinfeld.
  16. You'll notice he's sending his stepford sons out there to defend him as national republicans are slowing growing spines and distancing themselves from this train wreak of an administration. They're all holding their breaths for Comey's testimony tomorrow. And while I don't think he'll drop an impeachable bombshell, he's absolutely going prove that Trump blantantly lied about multiple interactions between him and Comey. Whether it's enough to start the great peel away when it comes to party support, we shall see.
  17. 😂😂😂 Jan, I know you're not trying to be funny. And there's nothing funny about this piece of shit. But can I just say your posts about him just give me so much life. I love how brutally descriptive you are.
  18. Boy he's on fire this morning. With this one being the worst of them all. http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news-other-administration/336342-trump-doubles-down-on-attack-against
  19. No, it's most of this country. Truly. Trump was elected with 46% of the vote. NOTHING will ever convince me that these people aren't willfully ignorant or just completely stupid. Or both. Either that, or they're too rich too care and just voted republican because they're programed to do so. Which makes them even worse. Look at what entertains this country. While I was shocked by Trump's election, I guess in hindsight, I shouldn't have been. He tapped into the celebrity culture that drives the masses and it paid off. Bigly. For him. But it's HIS voters that will pay the price in the coming years. Which makes it all the more tragically ironic.
  20. What is wrong with this man? http://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-slams-london-mayor-morning-after-attack?via=mobile&source=copyurl
  21. A pay check and relevancy. Didn't they ALL perform on these shows to remind the tween audience that they actually had hits?
  22. This thread is hysterical. Yeah, I hate most of them on these shows. Then again, I hate these shows. The one that REALLY grates on my nerves and makes my head spin is Gwen. God, I loved her from Tragic Kingdom all the way through the Sweet Escape (which wasn't that great) and to see her transform into this basic, boring bitch is just painful. She was terrible on the Voice and will NEVER understand her relationship with Blake. Who's just such a tool. What forced, propped up marriage. Alicia just looked SO out of place. And her no makeup stunt was annoying as hell too. Although, she is a beautiful woman.
  23. I'm just posting in here to say that Swish, Swish WILL be on my list of top 10 songs for 2017. I can't get enough of it. Why this isn't exploding on the radio is absolutely mystifying to me. It. Is. Everything.
  24. This is one of my favorite Madonna interview moments of all time actually. If you can't see the humor in this, you're better of dead.
  25. I don't want to live in this world anymore. What a crazy, awful, disturbing woman.
