Don’t repress yourself.
No, we’re not a Taylor Swift fan-site (RIP fansites), but from the looks of it this week we might as well have been a page ripped out of Taylor Swift’s Tumblr diary. Swift and Scooter Braun gave us plenty of Internet gossip to fodder over, and there’s no signs of it coming to an end; Swift will probably ignore Scooter’s pleads to make amends and obliterate him at the AMAs, which she is now cleared to perform at. Still, it fired up the newly-born BreatheHeavy Community to drop comments.
We’d like to highlight some of them, as well as comments left on other stories about our beloved pop stars.

“Taylor definitely knew this was coming, she’s not stupid and she’s young enough to know how social media, with all the good and the bad, works. I guess we could say she’s a sophisticated bully, because she just CANNOT TAKE losing at ANYTHING, and so she goes to any length to get what she wants or thinks is right. Such a big ego. Her demand is absolutely valid and the way Scott and the other old dude handled things were/are awful, but she’s still so immature and whiny in the way she tries to solve conflicts with people. I mean look at her and Katy, it truly became a worldwide narrative. She’s such a brat…..”

I mean yeah I can f*ck with that. I love Robbie Williams growing up. And I probably won’t care no matter how bad the song might be. I just love the idea that Britney has a song with other legends cause it’s a good look and I’ll live for that. It’s something we can brag about.

The grammys obviously can tell that no one cares (viewership)l wise) anymore. They are definitely trying to appeal to a younger audience which is great but i don’t even have cable and I’m 31. Can i also say that they are so predictable that the “leaked” list was probably just a guess and they were like “fudge, lets get the noms out”. I thought a grammy nomination party with announcement is the norm? Someone is fired lol…

Who are these people!?!? Janet is an ICON. She lip syncs prolly because she’s doing all that extricate choreograph dancing. Her fans expect a show because she’s entertaining. We don’t go for her singing and last but not least she’s MISS JACKSON!!!

I like how the article says she’s being accused of lip syncing lmao damn new fans. Welcome to 1982 🤦🏽♂️ Not that she doesn’t sing live (cuz she’s been doing it more since 2015) but c’mon… who doesn’t know that 💡

It doesn’t seem any of these issues started until Scooter Braun took over and yet he doesn’t want to take any blame? Riiiighhhttttt.
3.) Posted by sosaysdan on November 19, 2019 in Justice For Zayn: Harry Styles Throws Shade On SNL
Mariah is in bed with her Santa Jammies throwing popcorn at the screen and yelling ‘Yeessss Queen’!
To me this list is fascinating. You can tell the impact of the modern music industry. In the 90’s, Mariah Carey releases 6 incredible albums, 18 #1 hits. You drop into the 2000s, things change. Cultural impact takes place over music and songwriting. Mariah slumps with 2 so/so releases, then bounces back with another 2 solid releases mid 2000s. But this is also where Britney shines. Britney’s impact is next level, but she only Ran 4 albums and stopped. She didn’t promote ‘Blackout’, and she hardly pushed ‘Circus’. The next 3 she didn’t promote at all. When your entire career is image based, you have to keep that image up. This opened the door for the next set of work horses to dominate the 10’s.
Katy Perry, Lady GaGa, Adele…… all interesting paths to success. Out of all of them, Adele will have the lasting impact. She’ll be the one who’s vocals will potentially carry her chart success into the next decade.
Madonna is done. Though she forged the way for the Britney’s and Gaga’s begins her, Madge can’t seem to find a way to make her music connect with fans new or old. The chart success will be non-existent.
1.) Posted by RussGamel on November 21, 2019 in Madonna Booed At Vegas ‘Madame X’ Show For Being Late…
This was a terrible experience!! Madonna disrespects her loyal fans with her actions and lack of performance. For those of you who do not have time to read my entire review, I will only tell you not to waste your time or money on Madonna’s tour. Save your money for an actual show. This was ridiculous.
The original show time was scheduled for 8:30pm. At some point along the way, Madonna changed the time to 10:30pm. I called the Caesar’s box office to confirm a start time. They said the doors will open at 8pm. When Madonna feels like coming out to start the show, it will begin. There was no way of knowing what the exact start time would be. They recommended showing up between 8pm – 8:30pm so we would not miss the start.
We arrived shortly before 8:30pm as suggested. There were hundreds of people outside the doors and no sign of any progress. We waited in line. What was the delay? Madonna chose an option to ensure that no fans would have their phones available to them during the show. Every fan had to lock their phone inside a pouch so it could not be accessed until the show was over. I have never seen anything like this before.
We entered the venue and found our seats. At about 9:30pm, quartet appeared on stage to play some musical renditions of her songs. We assumed this was to prep the crowd for her performance. Fans gave them the courtesy of some cheers and claps. They finished playing, which meant it won’t be long for Madonna to come out. We were getting excited. This was our first time to see a Madonna concert.
The place was full of anxious fans expecting to see Madonna perform her popular music. Some of the fans traveled a long way just for this show. We came from Brazil. Others traveled from other parts of the world and obviously from other states.
At 10:30pm, we were expecting Madonna to come out soon. The lights went off a few times and then they were turned on again. It was like a tease. We sat there for hours waiting for her to appear. People started chanting for a refund. There was booing. The time moved on to 11pm, 11:30pm, and still no Madonna. There was another couple next to us from Brazil that left before the show started. The couple to our left also decided to leave. Arguments commenced in the crowd between angry fans and loyal Madonna groupies. Lots of others left early as the time neared midnight. Finally, shortly after midnight, Madonna decided to come out on the stage. Her first music was something we never heard before. It was nothing popular or recognizable. This was the start of things to come.
Her so-called concert became a talk show. Madonna talked for half of the time she was on the stage. When she decided to play some music, it was nothing anyone recognized. She sang in other languages, and at one point, she had another woman singing in her place. During one of her rants, she noticed that the fans were getting anxious. People were shouting at her to shut up and play her music. Her response was to say that she is performing her midnight show for us. We should relax, because a queen is never late. Seriously? Then she decided to take a selfie photo on stage and reminded us that we could not not do the same thing since our phones were being held hostage. She actually stood on the stage and auctioned off the selfie to the fans in the front section. She took $3K from a fan for her Polaroid selfie. It was not for a charity. It was for her own pocket. We thought about leaving when we realized she was not there to play any music.
About 90 minutes into the show, she played a snippet of Papa Don’t Preach. We thought this would be the start of something, but it wasn’t. Then she sat down talking about about her ****** and having ***. It was incredible. She told us the shut up and open our eyes….. we do not have our phones so that she can look us in the eyes and we can be present for this fiasco.
Madonna extended her freak show and conversation for almost 3 hours. At the end of the night, she finally played one of her hits. When the song was over, the curtain came down, and she disappeared. There was no encore. There was no mention of a thank you to the fans or a goodnight comment. She just left the stage, the curtain fell, and the Coliseum lights came on.
I am possibly leaving out some details, but I think you can get the point of this review.
