  1. I think this is actually a really good list, with the exception of Stronger at #1. Definitely ranked by a fan since they have And Then We Kiss...Junkie XL remix listed. I would definitely add Before The Goodbye, Mood Ring, I Run Away & Swimming In the Stars.
  2. I think Katy is the best example. She switched up her image (hair color and cut) to try snd get away from Katy Perry and more Katherine Hudson and honestly her career has been in the toilet since. It was probably her time anyway and that was probably the catalyst along with the music not being that great. But yeah, top of the charts to flop was a pretty big jump for her.
  3. This was always my favorite performance from her. I still remember how everyone was talking about it. She had such a great story at the time with this performance, it was the first time she truly transitioned into **** Britney ("I'm not that innocent"). Of course she got some blow back from parents who thought she looked like she was naked. I think she performs so much better in rehearsal, but I think its the camera angles, they never capture how perfectly she executes the choreography in live performances/videos because of the cuts... every slight hip movement, the way she bends her knees, power in her turns, its honestly beautiful. She was such a great performer.
  4. Beyonce is popular but she's not considered a pop artist. Janet Jackson, Aaliyah and Ciara? None of them are strictly pop. Ciara's last Top 10 on the Hot 100 was Love s** Magic in 2009 w/ Justin Timberlake. Also, Olivia Rodrigo was born in 2003. For the most part the only non-white pop stars in the most recent generation would be at best Rihanna and Beyonce, and even to some degree, they were before her time. And I forgot about her, but Selena Gomez, too and she is more recent.
  5. Let’s be real, most acts considered pop have always been white. Normani has pretty much said the same as her, there was no one that looked like her growing up and that you’ll see her Black face singing a pop record. In terms of the most recent generation, mid to late 2000s of pop, Rihanna is probably one of the few major acts who is often categorized as pop, but even she isn’t pigeonholed to just pop, same with Beyonce. So in terms of someone strictly being considered pop looking like her, I kind of agree. The face and sound of pop has changed with this most recent generation of acts like Billie, Olivia and Lil Nas X.
  6. This is a tricky one. The track with DaBaby and Marilyn Manson aren't on the album though. Kanye said Universal released the album, leaving off DaBaby and Manson, without his consent. Also, its very tricky, but Kanye has a song on the album called No Child Left Behind. If he wanted to include the two and that's what he wants to express through his music, and his faith, then perhaps be a bit more intellectual and critique his position.
  7. She definitely believes her own hype. She’s been complimented and supported by some of the biggest artists in the industry: Beyonce, Rihanna, Janet, Nicki, Ariana, Cardi, Megan
  8. I like this post. She's very introspective, and managed to tell a nice little story about...doors lol.
  9. The VMAs would be lucky to have her. Her Billboard Music Awards performance is still memorable. Its unfortunate she didn't get to perform Dancing With A Stranger at an awards show (Sam Hunt was out on vocal rest, I think) because I'm sure that would've been a moment for her. With that said, the performance roster at the VMAs looks decent. Doja Cat doesn't get enough credit for being an incredible dancer and performer; she suffers from the same problem as Normani (she seems kind of uninteresting) but with better solo music. I would've preferred to see Normani rather than Camila, Wild Side was a bigger hit.
  10. She looks a little older but still great. I like the 3rd pic (2nd pic on the 2nd Instagram post w/ the neck jewelry). She totally copied Rihanna's style with those belted thigh high boots. http://fashionpro.me/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/RihannaManoloVogue.jpg
  11. I don't like her at all. Anytime her name comes up in the media it tends to be something always about her. She wants to play X, Y and Z role regardless of how it makes other people, as an actor she's allowed to play any character (i.e. Black, Asian, white, gay, trans, etc.). I'd like to see more come out on this...I'd imagine she gets paid for streaming, since its not free and people have to pay for premier access.
  12. That's one way of looking at it, but she can't perform at her level if she's not in the right mindset. She could seriously injure herself, and ultimately her performance would bring down the team. At the end of the day, I think its a decision that might look easy, but it really isn't.
  13. How is she taking advantage of her Latin roots? She was born in Cuba and raised in Miami and her biggest hit is called Havana. You don't get much more Latin than that. If anything, her not embracing her Latin roots would be inauthentic.
  14. Legend. Seriously. He'll go down as changing the game for male LGBT artists.
  15. No, just saying the Don’t Go Yet in the chorus could’ve been more catchy. My only criticism. It’s like Havana without the Havana ooh na na part.
  16. The video and the caption are alllllll over the place....but kind of interesting. Very non-sequitur. And did she have no tennis shoes at all, or were they just old? She goes back and forth.
  17. I like the song, but not the title. They could've found something that rhymed better or was more catchy than "Don't Go Yet" in the songs chorus. That's the only misfire. Its like having Havana without "Havana ooh nah nah" that line alone is super catchy and kind of makes the song.
  18. I agree so much on the Sam comment. I love that he says he loves the song.
  19. It’s so nice to hear her say she’s proud of her old music and to sing it live and sound just like the CD.
  20. Britney has multiple personalities/voices/tones that she uses all the time. The British accent when she was running around with Sam Lutfi, the weird baby voice in her Instagram videos, the sometimes deep/froggy voice where she tries to sound more adult-like, and then her “true voice” which we heard in her testimony.
  21. Both can’t be true at the same time. Maybe she had mixed feelings about it or was just putting on a front at the time.
  22. People are allowed to be angry. People are manic. That’s not a reason to get locked into a conservatorship. I hope Britney gets the healing that she needs and I’m sure a lot of that will come from her being free and allowed to speak her mind. Her image has been more controlled than any other pop star I can think of, exceptions possibly being Michael Jackson, maybe Beyonce.
  23. The 2:20 mark is where Rachael Harris talks about Britney talking about fairy tales. She also talks about her dancing later in the episode. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/britney-spears-apologizes-for-pretending-to-be-okay/id1484422226?i=1000526872234
