And for anyone still claiming CRJ’s masterpiece is a product of “good management”, i give you this song as my main rebuttal. Why couldn’t good old Scooter do the same thing for Justin? Probs cause he aint got the songwriting chops that my girl Carly does.

August 28, 2015 on Justin Bieber’s New Single “What Do You Mean” Is Really Great

Nice production, fairly boring song. And Justin’s “wide open” vocal i think might actually just be a case of him not being a very good singer. Right after I listened to this song, I found myself humming that Usher song “I Don’t Mind” and Im gonna guess its because they sound exactly the same melody-wise.

In conclusion, I still hate him.

hahahaha omg i have to imagine that Taylor Swift saw that video and this was her response to it. Like why in the fuck else would she be singing a song with Crazy Eyes from Orange Is The New Black. Hilarious. Like this guest line up could have been one of the lines in that video. “Please welcome, the Girl from Orange is the New Black, Chris Rock, Joey from Friends, and Mary J Blige!!!” Unbelievable.

I saw her like 10 months ago and she fucking killed it. Amazing show. I saw her again a few weeks ago and she just seemed completely over it. Just completely bored with most of her tracks off Sucker. The only time it looked like she was really into it was when she did her “punk” song Mow That Lawn. That was awesome.

No, but forreal, great performance! I’m surprised that that sole sax sounded so identical to the record. Do you think there was some distortion added to it live or something? It has never sounded like just straight up sax to me. It sounds like someone stepped on someone who was playing a sax and then pushed it through a synthesizer. I of course mean that in the best way possible.

Sometimes I forget that Shake It Off is a part of 1989. Not a good tune.

Awesome performance. Can’t wait to see them at a tiny venue like Lincoln Hall.

This song gives me some serious early-era Strokes vibes. Not necessarily her vocals, but the guitar riffs especially that little solo that comes in after the chorus. Great stuff.

Also I really fucking hate the argument of “someone else could sing it better”. Why do pop stars have to have the most perfect fucking voices?

Where’s your personality?
Where’s your sense of style?
Where’s your amazing voice?
Where’s your marketability?
Where’s your sexiness?

She just gave you an incredible album. Is that not enough?

Thought the Red-Eye in Chicago summed up their thoughts on this topic nicely, while pretty much giving the finger to P4K the entire time:

“What separates Jepsen from the rest of the major pop stars, though, is how she’s managed to keep her wide-eyed romantic persona without becoming a larger-than-life cartoon, like the GIF-worthy careers of Katy Perry or Taylor Swift. Jepsen’s heart-on-sleeve romanticism works not because she’s assuming some meme-able persona but because she’s being the closest thing to her shy self that a mainstream pop star can be—there’s no more pure, even childlike distillation of this than “I Really Like You.” Jepsen’s not interested in being cool or starting “Bad Blood.” She’s interested in making the purest pop music she possibly can.”

I honestly wish they didn’t even review it. How are you gonna tell us its the best pop album of the year and then justify your shitty score with basically the reasoning of “its unmarketable”. You’re mad that her label hasn’t found the perfect, as yet-unfilled by another “pop star” image for her to fit into yet? This sounds like something that fucking Forbes would say about an artist. How in the hell do you expect to be taken seriously as music critics when you critique music based on “how sell-able is this artist?” You don’t see them sitting around going “Oh that new Tame Impala album is really nice but how well do we know Kevin Parker as a public figure?” Its a lot of bullshit if you ask me.

Im so sick of the “pop” label people put on music put out by women. Every time I see people talk about Emotion, its “This is the best ‘pop’ album of the year”. Why can’t it just be “one of the best albums of the year”? Why, because she’s a woman, does her album have to have a certain, lesser signifier in front of it? Im actually surprised people are ok with this. You don’t hear anyone say that I Love You Honeybear is one of the best “rock” albums of the year.

At this point I’d say you’re right on target with that. I like this song enough, but their second song did litte to nothing for me. The songs all sound just a tad dumbed down for more mass appeal.

Am I the only one who loves Omen though? I think everyone just passed on it cause it didn’t hit as immediately as Latch but if you give it a few spins it starts to hit real hard. I don’t even like Sam Smith but that song is a beast if you give it a chance to be.
