  1. YouTubers like Lauren Southern or Steven Crowder that managed to build a large platform of far-right followers who want their absurd conspiracy theories and bigotry validated are also another clear example of how much of a waste of oxygen these “influencers” are. Let’s not forget bored gold digging housewives who develop mommy blogs or sell lifestyle products that are damaging to women’s bodies. It infuriates me that these people keep on multiplying like lice.
  2. Portugal absolutely deserves to win due to Conan Osíris’ creativity alone. He refused to play a safe game and came up with a song that’s bizarre yet innovative. Telemóveis is an avant-garde blend of Fado, Techno and Worldbeat that discusses the multiple stages of grief and coming to terms with it. I salute his boldness. Proud to be a Tuga.
  3. I’d say the entire track listing of ABBA Gold is indeed iconic. I don’t think I’d necessarily say the same about The Immaculate Collection. Nonetheless, that’s merely due to the fact Rescue Me is remembered mostly by diehard fans, as it wasn’t a blockbuster hit in the same vein as Holiday, Into the Groove or Like a Virgin, just to name a few. All in all, Madge’s hits stood the test of time more organically. I am not in any way discrediting ABBA nor their monstrous success, but the fact is after they disbanded, they had to find a way to keep their legacy intact. The release of the Mamma Mia play on Broadway, as well as its respective big screen adaptations (more so the original though), were immensely helpful in reintroducing their catalogue to the public; more specifically the current generation who were not too familiar with their biggest hits. Regardless, they’re the two most legendary Pop acts of all-time. I do not count Wacko Jacko since his music borrowed a lot of elements from Funk and R&B. He was like a Christopher Nolan film. Overrated even if there’s some artistic merit. Madonna and ABBA, on the other hand, will always be pure cinema. The musical equivalents of Steven Spielberg’s filmography pre-2000’s.
  4. This woman is so alluring.
  5. This glorified conniving predator better be scorching in Hell as we speak.
  6. This gut-churning tyrant is the ultimate paradigm of totalitarianism.
  7. Since ABBA Gold is their version of The Immaculate Collection, I’d say its tracklist is what’s most remembered by general audiences.
  8. Let’s also hope her eccentric fashion style makes a grand return. I LOVE her reinventions throughout the 80’s and 90’s. What a chameleon :
  9. I’d also add that Dirty Computer offered a masterful execution of a conceptual and visual album about societal issues and sexual identity. I can’t echo the same thoughts towards Lemonade, which offers a watered down approach on those topics. Then again, Beyoncé has a LONG history of exploiting social justice movements to benefit her status.
  10. Diana also headlined the greatest Super Bowl Halftime Show prior to Prince and Madonna’s performances: That helicopter exit at the end is sublime.
  11. I love Diana. She's a true legend, more specifically a criminally underrated one who barely gets enough credit for making it big in a world that is still openly hostile to ethnic minorities. It's demeaning how she was snubbed of 12 nominations throughout her prime and has only been acknowledged with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
  12. Yep. That predator meticulously planned out every detail and knew exactly what he was doing. Hopefully he's rotting away in Hell if there is one.
  13. The Shammy’s essentially select their nominees on the basis of chart performance nowadays. The awards are then sold to whichever corporate puppet is the highest bidder. Artistic merit has been flushed down the drain almost entirely. Part of it has to do with the dwindling quality of outputs in the music industry. Part of it is due to a once prestigious cerimony becoming a popularity contest.
  14. I just love how the lyrics describe the end of a relationship through the usage of clever allegory. ABBA, much like Madonna, are expert crafters of break-up anthems.
  15. Couldn’t agree more. I don’t know if you watch The View, but Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain never miss an opportunity to play the “both sides are at fault” card to deflect any form of criticism aimed at Republican politicians.
