  1. If it wasn't for Britney being all **** at the top of the career, the overtly ***ualized steamy video, the performance and her being barely legal that song would have tanked big. It was really a super slow grower for me, and all of the previously mentioned facts helped it to cement the growing. Otherwise, I don't think the song on its own has that much replay value as a radio friendly hit - it has a bit of a weird structure and the melody is not the catchiest. P.S. Before I'm attacked, I personally LOVE the song. But that song underperformed with the general public for a lead single and I think Janet couldn't have been able to save it.
  2. I mean - she might be just unfamiliar with what's happening with Britney or what her conservatorship entails, so it's better to be hush. She could get acquainted and then answer later down the road (if she gets asked again) - but at the time of this interview, she didn't know much. Would you prefer she faked/manipulated an answer in the sense of - "yes, I fully support the movement of Free Britney", without knowing what that movement represents? I do think she could have possibly asked a question/showed more interest about the movement and made a statement in regards to what she would have been told, but her statement is miles away from inappropriate.
  3. Criminal is an iconic hit song even to this day. It was used in the movie Hustlers, alongside Gimme More. Fiona hates publicity and is a loner - she rarely leaves her house, and you won't find her anywhere on social media. Moreover, she has been *****, has battled anorexia (without trying to gain sympathy from public like miss. Selena) and she vents a lot of her anger through her songs - her lyrics are pure poetry btw! Anyhow, her earlier albums were more pop-yish and flow easier to the ears, but her subsequent ones are the ones more acclaimed by the critics. If you want to go for an easier ride try: Criminal, Paper Bag, I know, Never is a promise, I want you to love me, Not About Love, Carrion - she's one of the greatest (alternative) pop artists that is unfortunately considered too alt to be included in pop categories.
  4. She has always been an outspoken artist that didn't take no **** from anybody. An iconic speech at the 1997 VMA's: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVHQJlogH0k&ab_channel=Urisu She's also one of the greatest singer-songwriters and an amazing piano player! Exhale should know better than to bully an important pop culture feminist.
  5. Everybody in Hollywood knows and approves when other people get botox, but none of them has ever tried it. Also, all of them are not against one day maybe getting it, but who would they ever ask for advice when none of them have tried it. Poor celebrities.
  6. Hey mate, yapp, I am playing pokemon, I am level 40 and living in Portugal. I can invite you to a raid one of these days! I also need an Azelf as well. Can you share your friend code? Greets
  7. Ageism at its finest. People being older makes them unable to give their opinion about a stupid documentary? I am glad Sean is enjoying himself, whatevs. The documentary seems boring AF and he hasn't had enough of a successful career to create an appealing one.
  8. I didn't leave my country up until last year and I came from the capital. Sure, there are/were gay echo chambers (and their allies) - but the overall consensus is hardly positive (overwhelmingly negative). I guess I cannot claim things for Belgrade, since I'm not from Serbia, but you putting all gays leaving their country in a basket of whiny people that want to complain is super ****ed up and inaccurate. We felt and we lived through discrimination and hatred before we left it, otherwise I would be more than happy to say that I come from a loving place.
  9. LGBTI Rights good at the balkans? Where? All gay people I know my age have either left their country (me included) or are planning to, partially because of money, but also partially bcz they can't live openly (the serbians being one of the more aggressive nations on the balkans)
  10. You have quoted me and then replied to something I havent said. I am attracted to black guys. I am also attracted to white guys or Asian guys. The point is, they are separating this one "exotic" group that lives predominantly in Africa and objectifying them. I am not butthurt nor offended, as I stated even in my post. I am not black so I cannot tell what a black person should be offended by. Would I be offended if they created a similar fetishizing video with white gay men stereotypes? Possibly. That's why I think it's tone deaf. Quite frankly, don't see the funny in it either, but what's entertaining is subjective, I can anyways change the channel. ** The innuendo for their big black ****s is not exactly hidden in the video, you just need to read between the lines (or the images).
  11. They are fetishizing these black man, as if it's a thing to experience whilst on a trip to Africa. Feel the exoticness of this different race than the one is yours. I am attracted to black men, but I wouldn't go all "I go to Africa to have that big black ****" as a celebrity (in any kind of play with words either) because of this kind of backlash. Anways, I don't find this funny, nor particularly offensive, but it's not my place to say it either. If African men don't mind, then who am I to tell anybody what to be offended by.
  12. I am living for the love of Walk Away on the thread. On the topic of that song, Ari's song Dangerous Woman was such a rip-off of it, that to me it felt so weird that she actually got Christina to sing it with her. Ever since I first heard Dangerous Woman, I was humming the "I need to get away from you, walk away from you...". Such a classic Loved that album tho. It really helped me during some difficult times during university, and it aged like fine wine for the most part!
  13. It is largely taken out of context - he is just saying that the things that she supposedly wants (e.g. ordering food herself, waiting in a restaurant, dealing with bureaucracy for documents) are not exactly practical or nice to do, since all normal people would want to have an assistant to finish those stuff for us. Celebrities? They all ******* have many assistants. I largely disagree with him, since it should of course, be her choice of what she wants to do. If she wants to get McDonalds or Starbucks everyday herself looking ratchet, that's for her to decide and she should have the freedom to do so. But he is answering everything in a super diplomatic way. Like, "I know what she wants, but what she wants really sucks, and she is not aware she doesn't need it anyways". Super ****ed up
  14. When did Bryan say this? I feel this is something I couldnt have missed, which is weird since I lurk this website daily.
  15. He is telling her she looks pretty jokingly - with that filter they both look like gollum. I doubt he would be that stupid to seriously state he fell in love with her because of her looks (even if he thinks it)
  16. I come from Macedonia, and there was a huge craze with Rebelde Way (2001-2003 I believe), which people from 9 to 16 were all obsessed with. RBD was subsequently the Mexican remake that wasn't ever shown here. I loved Erreway when I was younger - Luisana Lopilato has always been quite a stunner, and all the others are also quite cool (both Benjamin Rojas and Felipe Colombo were good looking guys and Camila Bordonaba seems like such a sweet soul). Nevertheless, I have come to realize I've outgrown both their music and the TV show. Both have a brain-cells loss inducing story-line/lyrics
  17. I actually think you got it all wrong. They weren't "trying" to push anybody in the front, they were trying to give everyone the chance to shine, seeing as each of them had their own singing parts, ad-libs, sass, and it was bound that in different songs, some people would sing less, and others more. They were definitely steering away from being a "*****cat Dolls" kinda group, since all of them were at a singing competition trying to be a star, not background singers. But my opinion: I think only three of them had any chance to succeed Camila Cabello: Most feminine, petite, cutesy distinctive voice. Personally, I dislike her. She seems the pettiest, victimizing herself (wolf in sheep's clothing) under the hoods of i'm the smallest, the one that needs protection, but is actually the meanest (and racist one). What she's missing: Identity. She really looks up to Taylor Swift and is trying to mimic the businesswoman that Taylor is. (the bearding game is strong with this one) Her music so far has been one-trick pony Lauren Jauregui: She has the huskiest, seductive voice, most beautiful of them all (imo), very strong and opinionated personality (talking about being anti-vaccine was not a good look) Personal opinion about her: I think she will outlive the rest of them cause she knows who she is, she doesn't want to do pop and doesn't seem fame hungry and she seems she's enjoying flying low under the radar and just releasing some bops here and there (and I guess making money with smaller gigs) Normani: Amazing in one word with looks and being real, and actually seems the sweetest. I don't know why she's not succeeding, but maybe the material she picks just isn't ringing with the general public? Other two: // Don't know them
  18. I think I'm from the older folks / generations that finds it super cringy to watch kiddos performances with lipping and over-enunciation of the words of the songs. I feel weird watching them. And it was so much widely accepted to hate it when it was called Musical.ly. Not to say there's no funny content here and there, but I don't want to fall down a new social media rabbit hole really. TBH I do think the Instagram Reels copy is gonna supersede the popularity of TikTok and I'm not here for that either.
  19. Give Tidal and When The Pawn a listen. She has always been pop - with mellow melodies on piano, with a lot of emotions conveyed through her voice. Her last two albums have been very experimental, but at most I'd say she has been doing alternative pop. So ye, she is pop. And she gets my vote easily.
  20. I wasn't discussing somebody's taste as unworthy. I see the US has been pretty happy with both Shakira and JLo. Does it matter I find JLo basic? It doesn't. I am one of billions. My argument was solely that we should not disregard, discredit or not acknowledge 'lessers' that paved our way. Those nobodies helped JLo big time become the star she is today.
