  1. One of the main issues that I personally have with today's culture is that "phobias" have become synonymous with discrimination, which isn't always the case. Apparently if you don't 100% agree with someone's lifestyle or choices (if it's a choice) or have a differing opinion, then you are labeled phobic and discriminatory. 

    The reality is that you can be phobic towards something but it doesn't necessarily mean that you are discriminatory, and that's a really tough pill and idea for people to swallow.

    I recently came across a TikTok video of a trans-woman who was claiming that employees at an establishment were transphobic because they were "purposely" misgendering her and being discriminatory. What really irked me is that whether or not it was intentional, this woman was just hollering and blathering about it rather than trying to have a rational conversation. The manager appeared to be more ignorant than transphobic but then she goes on this rant about how she's being discriminated against. It's like we've watered down the meaning of what it means to discriminate. Discrimination would have been denying her service for being trans not misgendering her. 

    I don't know, maybe I'm just behind with the times but this entire culture just seems toxic to me and making it more difficult to gain understanding and acceptance by the general public.

    As a gay man, I'll admit that this entire idea of having gender pronouns seems ridiculous to me. If you want to be referred to as they/them because you don't want to be gendered as male or female, then just wear a flesh colored body suit that covers your face and body and call it a day.

    Have you been to the AA Arena in Miami? If you have, you’d know there are always hundreds of resellers in the parking lot with tons of tickets on hand. It’s not a small fraction, at least in Miami

    There are not hundreds of resellers standing outside of the arena - quit exaggerating. Also even if there were, let's assume each has 4 tickets to sell, you're talking about 1,000 tickets compared to the 15k+ capacity. Again, small fraction.

     

    You can go to Seat Geek and there are roughly 1,000 tickets for sale already and most are going for face value. Resellers would not be reselling for zero profit.

    I literally logged on at 11:59 PST this past Friday and when noon hit, I entered the queue and I was the 998th person in queue. In one hot second. There were definitely bots in there scooping up tickets which is so annoying and I don't understand how we haven't found better ways to combat this.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Dua again live. The last time she was quite bland, and remains bland from what I've seen in live performances and such. BUT this album is huge so def wanted to show it love by supporting its arena tour. I'm hoping that Dua at least gives us spectacle if she's not gonna give us choreo. She already serves vocals and looks but I need her to step it up ... just a touch :werk_britney_bw_black_white_dance_sexy_flirt_my_prerogative:

    Hahaha, you're doing it wrong. They opened the queue 45 minutes before tickets went on sale so if you were logging in at 11:59 PST, you were already late. I got in 30 minute before and was able to snag some decent seats but yah, you got on too late.

    I don't get how people can say she's still a boring or bad performer when she literally NAILED the Brits earlier this year and Studio 54 was a masterpiece!

    She has grown so much and is in my opinion not worde than Ariana Grande who does nothing but sing. 

    The same reason why people would say Britney was the next Debbie Gibson in 1999 or that she was a weak singer who wouldn't make it past her first album. People love to root against anyone who may be doing well. Haven't you learned that by now? lol

    They were resellers. I tried getting tickets for opening night in Miami and was literally only able to get two nosebleeds. I bought mine under 60 seconds after they went on sale

    You realize that there are thousands of people trying to buy tickets all at once right? It's practically a lottery so on who gets first dibs on tickets. Yes, there are some resellers but that is a very small fraction of the sales.

  6. We could argue all day about the quality of MTV and the VMAs today compared to 20 years ago, but to me, this photo says it all...

    THIS is true music royalty and representation of what music USED to be:

    The level of iconic-ness is unmatched. What do we have today....

    A bunch of TikTok stars with zero originality.

    I loved those skits (I agree they were a bit insensitive though). There's also a not a girl not yet a woman, and a womanizer one. My favorite is My Prerogative.

    I feel so old.

     

    I know I feel old too and I agree, some were a bit insensitive but if you can get past that, they're just soooo funny. 

  8. I might be aging myself here but does anyone remember the Britney skits that MadTV would do back in teh day?

    Sure some were insensitive but honestly, some of them just crack me the hell up. My favorites:

    My favorite lyrics:

    Ever since I kissed her she's ben moping like a *****

    And I don't need another mother but she just won't leave me alone, she won't leave me alone

    I don't wanna knock her, but she's a crazy stalker

    I wish she'd take her walker and just get a run on home

    ***** leave me alone

    LMAO!

  9. Here's the thing, the Circus tour is by far my favorite Britney tours. I just love the music and the arrangements but like most people who love it, I hate that we never got a DVD quality recording of the tour. There's some really good videos on YouTube but I feel like there aren't many with good sound quality.

    So...I'm sort of making it a side project of mine to recreate the entire Circus tour in a studio quality sound. My goal is to take some good quality videos from YouTube and then sync up my music with them for an overall better experience.

    That said, before I get too sucked into it, I have to ask. Is this anything that anybody would even want to see or hear?

    Here is a 15 second teaser of Get Naked (I Got a Plan). The video quality sucks, but this will give you an idea of what it'll sound. 

    (side note, I will add some live elements too so it has more of a live sound)

    Are y'all serious, she's our modern day Celine Dion - well to be anyways. Her voice is incredible! I guess I also love her because of her personality, mainly her laugh, very contagious 

    True!

    She's delivering the classics for this generation - although she won't ever really be able to live up to the vocal trinity that is Celine, Whitney and Mariah. Still she's the closest that we have to that.

     Sure Madonna has been a role model for many queer people, but she isn’t the only blueprint out there.

    I do find Madonna irritating at times and find her to be pretentious, but don't you try to devalue or label what she did for LGBT rights as simply being a "role model." What that woman did for the LGBT community in the 80's is still far more than what we see "activists" do today.

    “Milking” you know what artists used to do back in the day? This is a proper era. Sucks for those who stan people releasing two singles and moving onto the next album. Can’t relate :unbothered_apple_chew_bite_hair_eat_chomp_red:

    This!

    It’s sad that an artist who takes pride in their work and wants to put the energy into promoting is said to be “milking the era.” Like no honey, this is what hard work and passion looks like.

    Like you said, all these other artists are merely here to make music, cash in on it and move on. To be honest, it’s those types of artists that have cheapened the music industry and taken the excitement out of it.

  13. You don't like her, but you're making a post about her and getting more people to talk about her, but yet you don't want people putting her on a pedestal. 

    Like why be so pressed about someone you don't like? Do you think talking about some other artists is going to devalue what Dua brings to the table? Must be so tiring to be this pressed....
