  1. And just like that, Rolling Stone lost what little credibility they had by dubbing a boy band as one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. There was nothing rock and roll about One Direction at all. Glad Rolling Stone is getting called out.
  2. Chromatica is #9 and is already expected to be the first album of 2020 to sell a million copies pure worldwide, Future Nostalgia is #6. But the top 3 is all Female (rare) and even rare two are pop driven albums. #3 Rare Selena Gomez ( that has to make my breatheheavy bestie @Roxxy happy about the acknowledgement of Selena's Best work to date) #2 Manic by Halsey (still the only 2020 release to be certified platinum by the RIAA) #1 The controversial album in terms of public vs. The critics. The critics praised the album to universal acclaim and was the first 100 for awhile on metacritic. The public score is actually the first low a 6.7 public score which many can't find what's all the raving about. According to Rolling stone the best album of 2020 is.... Fetch the bolt cutters by The original Alternative teen queen Fiona Apple who declared at the 1997 VMAS that the world is Bullish for people worshipping the ground celebrities walk on. That comment was highly criticized.
  3. The Lambs are dragging Rolling Stone once again for not including Mariah Carey's "Vision of Love" on the 100 greatest debut singles of all time. It's no secret... Rolling Stone never loved Mariah Carey at all. They only gave her two covers in the 90s cause that's how big she was. Kind of like how RS never had love for Janet Jackson in the way they did for Michael Jackson. Rolling Stone was team Whitney Houston through and through. The Lambs knows that Mariah Carey was never a RS fav. Mariah Carey being a Christian and always preaching her faith is very un rock and roll to the ultimate rock and roll bible. Her feminine girly girl image goes against the masculine/androgynous type females they prefer the likes of Madonna or Beyoncé. A lot of her personal beliefs is everything Rolling Stone is against. Do you believe RS has it out for Mariah Carey and her legacy? @JordanMiller @Roxxy
  4. In the year 2000 Rolling stone interviewed Madonna as the cover star (the most covers for a female in a magazine that is dubbed The Rock and Roll Bible). She said some interesting things about the teen pop scene amd basically dragged us along with our favs. RS: What do you think about the musical landscape in America? M: (Smirks) Thinking does not really come into the picture. (She dragged us in that comment) RS: When is the reign of teen pop going to end? It always goes in cycles, but.... M: But can a reaction hurry up, please? Will someone just start puking? Can we have some version of the punk-rock movement again? RS: In the meantime, the current crop is still hanging on. M: What- Kiddie bands? I hope not much longer. We always talk about it at our house. Because there are so many great people in the music business who are languishing right now. Especially a lot of great English bands. You talk to the guys From Massive attack. or Tricky, or Goldie or any of those people- it's like there's no outlet for any of their music. Record companies don't know what to do with them. I mean, the only people buying records is teenagers. God, it's depressing. I mean, I hope people like my music. RS: Please, you know they will. M: Listen, I swear to you- I don't know anything. It's a slippery slide to get on. And I keep my fingers crossed. I have the best intentions. I worked hard, that's all I can do, you know? RS: It's an interesting visual, your album nestled amid all the dreck in the Top 10. M: I Know, well....who knows? I mean, I've been told I inspired Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears (rolls her eyes) so maybe it's not so strange that I could be in the mix of them.

  8. Rolling Stone Music Now podcast goes behind the story of Britney’s first single as we near the 20th anniversary of ...Baby One More Time. They mention things we already know like the song was first pitched to TLC. Britney originally wanted to be a singer songwriter and wanted a sound like Sheryl Crow, Macy Gray and Jill Scott not the pop sound she ended up getting on the first album. I don’t know how to embed the podcast but it’s linked in the story. Listen to the podcast where they discuss the history of BOMT it’s great!! Also Britney didn’t like her 2000 OIDIA album and was desperate for a vacation. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/britney-spears-baby-one-more-time-722718/amp/
  9. In a recent interview with UK paper Metro, singer LeAnn Rimes spoke about Britney Spears and her super public, super poignant mental health issues. LeAnn said she had “been in those shoes too,” and that while she didn’t shave her head surrounded by a mob of drooling paparazzi, and have the images plastered on the cover of every single tabloid ever, she did have her moments. “I totally understand it,” she said. “I didn’t go there, but I definitely had the feeling of it I’m sure at some point.” Of course, this has provoked a number of articles with headlines like “LeAnn Rimes Almost Had a Breakdown Like Britney Spears.” Because people can be, um, the worst. It’ll be ten years next February since Britney reached her breaking point in a salon in Tarzana, California, before taking to a photographer’s car with an umbrella. All in full view of an hysterical crowd. At the time, reports said she was complaining of her hair extensions being too tight, and that when asked by one of the salon’s employees why she’d done it, she'd responded: “I don’t want anyone touching me. I’m tired of everybody touching me.” It doesn’t exactly take a hyperactive imagination to appreciate why, after a lifetime of controlled environments, rigorous and demanding schedules, and a frightening lack of privacy, a person might flip. It’s not “crazy” or “insane” for somebody in Britney’s position to eventually say “**** this, I can’t do it.” If anything, it’s kind of strange that it didn’t happen sooner, or more often. Perhaps because she was the first of her kind. Britney’s struggles with mental health, which eventually came to a head in 2007 and 2008, were the most public the world, and pop culture, had ever seen. At the height of her fame, Britney couldn’t even go to the bathroom without being followed. Her every move was pulled apart in telephoto-lense snaps, Perez Hilton proto-think pieces, and endless tabloid covers. Everywhere you looked, you’d see Britney robbed of her privacy. Mocked, chased, insulted, embarrassed, harassed, and defamed. A violating upskirt photograph of her crotch made worldwide news for weeks. She was 26. And a mother of two. The world watched, and fed off her instability. They egged the madness on. What could be more salacious than the world’s biggest pop star buckling under the pressure? What could sell more copies of People than Britney Spears losing her ******* mind? Nothing. Because juicy and perverse makes money. In Vanessa Grigoriadis’ 2008 Rolling Stonefeature piece “The Tragedy of Britney Spears,” we were invited to meet The Real Britney. "The Tragedy of Britney Spears." As if she were a play, not a nuanced and complex human being. “She is not a good girl” Grigoriadis wrote. “She is not America's sweetheart. She is an inbred swamp thing who chain-smokes, doesn't do her nails, tells reporters to ‘eat it, snort it, lick it, **** it’ and screams at people who want pictures for their little sisters.” Buried between Grigoriadis’ petty reductions, and accounts of Britney's many unusual business relationships that seemed nothing if not manipulative and toxic, the profile unearthed stories of Britney being forced to work when she was unfit, and told of her father’s emotional abuse and drug addiction that Britney witnessed as a young woman. Yet Grigoriadis’ piece failed to find any empathy for her. Instead, Britney was the scathing, indignant fame *****, who took advantage of us for her own gain. We were the victim, and she had failed us. The Rolling Stone cover story did give us something, though: a record of red flags. We see obvious signs Britney was losing her ability to cope with her own super-sized fame. Accounts of her behaviour changing over time, from the All-American “good girl,” who was endlessly polite and a joy to work with, to a snappy, cagey, and increasingly paranoid woman who wouldn’t even give a fan the time of day. She, understandably, felt like nobody could be trusted. Still, in Grigoriadis’ closing paragraph—less than a hundred words after the part about her possible attempted suicide, when she'd overdosed on prescription drugs in 2007—we were told that “after blaming everyone else for her problems, Britney's finally starting to realize the degree to which she's messed up, but her sense of entitlement keeps her from admitting it to herself, or to anyone who is trying to help her.” In November of 2008 the world was invited to go deeper still, with the intimate documentary Britney: For the Record. A collection of interviews and behind the scenes footage, For the Record showed us a side of Britney’s fame that we weren’t really ready to see. This is what it was actually like to be Britney. Not the girl next door, the “...Baby One More Time” Britney. But the Britney who was going through a heartbreaking divorce. The Britney who was attempting to rehabilitate after a major mental health crisis. The Britney who’d had her child knocked out of her arms by unrelenting photographers, trying to get to her car to escape them, only to have the photo of her “dropping her baby” spread like wildfire, on every front page, and used as an example of her incompetence. In one particular scene (the one that everyone always talks about) we watched Britney try to make sense of the recent months—her marriage to Federline, her custody battle, the hair thing. She breaks down, cries, and says “I’m sad.” This was meant to be her comeback film. In the documentary’s deleted scenes, we saw an even more disturbed Britney. “If I wasn’t under the restraints that I’m under right now,” she’d said, referring to the strict confines of her day-to-day life, “I would feel so liberated. And when I tell them how I feel it’s like, they hear me… but they’re really not listening.” “Even when you go to jail, there’s always the time that you know you’re going to get out. But in this situation,” she starts to cry, “it’s never-ending.” Since then, reports have smattered the pages of papers and have popped up online, claiming that all manner of indecencies were plaguing Britney and her camp during this time, including her being drugged and controlled by her former manager Osamah “Sam” Lufti. Following a popular trope of the inexperienced right-hand-man to an impressionable superstar (a la Brian Wilson and Anna Nicole Smith), from the moment she met Lufti, Britney's life spiralled further out of control. Britney met Lufti in a club through a mutual friend. He was a “consultant” at a gas company at the time. Lufti told Britney he’d manage her affairs for an extremely casual 15% of her $800k a month salary. That’s a paycheck of $120,000 a month. He apparently printed their contract off the internet. Britney’s father eventually took out a restraining order against him, fearful that he was trying to control her assets, her timetable, her music: basically, her life. Lufti had moved into her house, cut the phone lines. Several people close to Britney believe to this day that Lufti was slipping prescription drugs into her food. Sam Lufti has had three other restraining orders taken out against him. To this day he is still trying to take Britney to court, claiming financial retribution and labelling her as a “**** addict.” Looking back on what happened to Britney—what still happens to Britney, if you’re in the habit of Googling her and coming across articles that say things like “it's hard to remember when she was famous for making music and not for being crazy”—you’d think we’d have learnt our lesson. But if Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan are anything to go by, we’re still as predatory as ever. And that is a pretty depressing thing. LeAnn Rimes also said in her interview with Metro that she admired Britney. “I look at her and think it’s really amazing what she’s overcome. It’s nice to see someone come out the other side and be successful again.” That’s the quote that deserves follow-up articles. That’s the quote. Because Britney Spears is still one of the most successful women in pop. If you have to, forget the guts it took for her to step back into the spotlight, back out on stage, knowing full well the ridicule and speculation that would come with it—that some people were probably expecting her to fail. That kind of strength is pretty incredible, but that's not even the story here. Since 2008, we have seen three full-length albums from Britney Spears, and there's another, Glory, on the way. She has toured the world twice—pause on that for a moment. The world. Twice—and has performed her Piece of Me stage show, AKA her residency in Vegas, fifty times a year for the last three years. That is insane. She also appeared as a—mind-blowingly screencap-able—judge on season two of U.S. X Factor, and was the highest-earning judge on a singing competition series in history. She was also named music’s top-earning woman in 2012 by Forbes Magazine. Most importantly, she told People magazine that she’s the “happiest [she’s] ever been.” Don't believe her? Look at her freakin' Instagram. No matter how much the world wanted this woman to fail, she didn’t.
