  1. Y'all are fucking horrible. This is supposed to be a woman that's meant a lot to you and because you're all feeling a little bitter about fuck knows what you're agreeing she looks confused on stage? 

    Id be disappointed if I ever had fans like you. I get you're here for a laugh and a joke but Christ. Do you have to be so venomous? 

    Britney isn't in an imperial phase, she isn't doing the most in her career, she isn't on top, she never will be again, she doesn't care. All true. But now you're being actively mean? I'm appalled. Coming for her in every post is so dire and unnecessary. Let some light in your lives its not that serious. 

    Its a cheap joke that belongs in 2013, Will & Grace is great and it's build on cheap jokes. It's a shame but it's not surprising. 

    I'm disappointed in you all. 


  2. She signed for 4 more albums, with more creative control and final says than any of her contracts before. She said not on a set limit to release she's got them at her own pace. Glory was the first so she has 3 left. 

    As for the Make Me video... I'm pretty sure it being scrapped had to have been okayed by the label heads so let's let it go. 

    Im so bored of reading about it. 


  3. This is her 'Stripped.'



    Demi Lovato's sixth studio album Tell Me You Love Me is inspired by what it's like to be young and single.



    In her first new body of music since 2015's Confident, Lovato explores the ideas of what it's like to tell a friend that you love them, what it's like to be a bit messed up and how in the search for love your sexuality can be your solace. Like any typical Demi album that has come before, the singer delves deep into her psyche and exposes her scars, but this time around she seems more self-reflective.

    The album's first single, "Sorry Not Sorry", is the perfect opener to this body of work. As a message to anyone that's ever doubted her, the track shows Demi at her most confident. This is an anthem for those that need revenge. Those whose pettiness has driven them to better themselves to show them what their ‘ex’ is missing. The track climbs with the pre-chorus – laden with hand claps and synths any pop star worth their salt would be jealous of, and as the chorus hits it makes the listener want to grab their hairbrush and lip-synch for their life in solidarity with the 25-year-old. As a start to the album, Lovato tells us defiantly that she's not sorry for being her, and she loves every moment of it, and it sets the perfect precedent for the rest of the album.

    The Grammy nominee's confidence continues to soar as the album goes on. On "Lonely," Lovato lays her sexuality and self-worth out for all to see. The DJ Mustard-produced track evokes early Mariah with her delivery in the opening few bars. Lovato denounces a lover and how useless they are. The repetitive chorus hits home the idea of how disappointed she is with this lover and how she longs for someone to do what they should. The sparse production with the harsh tone in her voice makes it sound like it'll be a brilliant song when performed live. On "Cry Baby," Lovato discusses how much this person has hurt her despite her strength. Add the sexuality, self-worth and awareness of her emotions and a makeup free album cover; this truly is her Stripped.

    The promotional track, "You Don't Do It For Me Anymore," is an album highlight. The song masquerades as a breakup anthem where she realises that that her lover isn't who she thought they were. If you dive deeper, the listener begins to understand that this song is an ode to her former self. Here, Lovato finally starts to move on from the girl she used to be that once haunt her presence. The track also includes one of the best vocal deliveries to date from the former X Factor judge. Lovato cleverly conveys herself to be self-reflective on her past, and this kind of honesty is truly beautiful. Especially when compared to the tone her previous work took on her battles with sobriety, like on the 2011 hit "Skyscraper", where Lovato was indignant in her quest to beat her demons. It seems like she’s finally succeeded.

    The album title track, "Tell Me You Love Me," has an excellent vocal delivery as the "Neon Lights" singer begs for love. The production of the track is sublime as it reaches gospel undertones within the chorus, and the "oooh"'s of the post-chorus are incredibly catchy. Demi is known for her incredible voice, and this is further seen on "Daddy Issues". The track is an impeccable masterclass in sexy pop production; the stuttering staccato synths of the chorus when coupled with her powerful vocal delivery creates a soundscape that really transports the listener into the world that she's created for this song. It’s insatiable. "Daddy Issues" details how Lovato is in love, and the love is unrequited, but lucky for him that's what keeps her interested. It's a bittersweet nod to the tragic past of her father, but uses it in such a brilliant way that makes the listener relate, laugh and feel sexy. It's a shame the song is so short, and the bleeping out of the expletive also feels out of place for an artist that has never been scared of a profanity- especially when the next track, "Ruin The Friendship" uses the word "Fuck" so freely.

    When Demi said this album was about being young and single, she didn't lie. This album is a perfectly spun concept for what it's like to be a single 20-something who's trying to find their way and find love. The pseudo-sensual-R&B style really suits her. Overall, Tell Me You Love Me is Lovato's strongest album to date, and begins a really exciting new chapter in her career as she has uncovered a musical direction that complements her – one that she can utilise in the future to cement her legacy as one of the most talented pop stars of her generation.

    Favourite Lyric: "Your body's looking good tonight; I'm thinking we should cross the line"

    Favourite Songs: Daddy Issues, Only Forever, Games

    Overall Rating: 4/5 stars.

  4. It would be a smart thing to do really, extra promo and it makes fans want to buy more editions. Standard with 12, Deluxe gets 3 more, Target edition gets 1 more and a remix and then the Japan bonus. And obviously a U.K. Edition with them all on just for me :mattafact:

    She also should consider signed bundles on her site with alternative covers. Steps recently announced their rerelease of their Tears On The Dancefloor album and it included 5 alternative covers signed individually by members and you could buy a bundle with them all so you'd get 6 copies. They all count at separate sales. Smart. 

    I also wouldn't be surprised if she tried a tour bundle.

    Apple’s worth almost a trillion dollars, they could afford it lol.

    It’s probably more to do with safety issues than anything else. It’s sad, but the UK has been targeted several times over the past year.

    I truly doubt that, I'm well aware of the terror attacks as I'm from England, and was at the Ariana concert and what I've found is, yes a sense of fear and trepidation, but the aim to not let music die. To celebrate music and have a good time in the face of adversity. If it was because of the attacks I'd be very disappointed. It's a small venue with excellent security. 

    Perhaps it just wasn't getting the coverage they wanted. Who knows. That or it's being replaced with something else. 


  6. I'm looking forward to a new residency I've wanted to go to Vegas for some time. :mattafact:

    Give me a show with a storyline and a big production budget... Britneys version of the Aphrodite Les Folis tour would be excellent in a Vegas setting. :mattafact:

    Work on a good album, work with good producers. I have no doubt she'll love Taylor's new stuff and want to work with Jack Antonoff and maybe Max if they'll have her. :mattafact:

    Id like something more original, Karen needs to absolutely scour the internet for good underground producers. :mattafact:

    Remix the hits, include the new material from the Off and make it visually appealing. Thats all I ask.:mattafact:

    That and turn your fucking mic on. :mattafact:


  7. I coined the idea of Pretty World after the BBMAs as a joke and now it's cottoned on a side an idea, especially after the reveal that When I Rule The World by Liz was destined for Britney. And then Clumsy and Liar. 

    There was an album of sorts kind of being planned, Pretty Girls was panned and Britney thought the material she was being given was shit lol
