I was never into Shania, but she was the alternative to bro-country, than we really need artists like her back.

March 21, 2015 on The Week In Pop: Sam Hunt Brings Hip-Hop-Informed Country To SXSW
I need to relisten to Electra Heart, as I thought it was a massive disappointment at the time, at the point I stopped listening to her, even though some of the songs, like "Radioactive" and "Primadonna" were actually really good. I thought she tried to pull off an entire album in "Shampain" mode, but it got exhausting (and this comes from someone who absolutely loves Shampain and thinks it might just be her song ever). The new album is a great surprise in tone though.

They are both really nice and all, but they still don't feel like the anthemic songs Rihanna gave us before her break. Here's hoping her actual album will deliver harder than this.

True Blue is kind of uneven, while Confessions really goes hard.

I hadn't thought of "U Got It Bad", but I thought "I Bet" was pretty similar to Beyonce's "Jealous" (not enough for accusations of plagiarism, but enough that I was reminded of it).

That Jimmy Eat World/Kelly Clarkson situation is one of the few instances where I think a lawsuit needs to happen.

There's a total of zero rapes on Marvin Gaye's song, for one thing.

Yep, that's not a family with the most pleasant history, is it?

It's too bad nothing else from Kiss crossed over. "Tonight I'm Getting Over You" at least should've been a huge hit.

All this list is missing is "Gossip Folks" though. I'd actually put that one on top 5.

It's impossible for me to ever get tired of any of these songs. And that's a pretty perfect top 3. "Get Ur Freak On" has to be one of the songs I played the most through out my life.

Since I'm not cool and I still love The Weeknd, I have to say, "Earned It" is a pretty addictive listen.

For some reason, Kim Gordon's comments reminded me of this: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/ae/96/5c/ae965cb1ce439a15fac3278f774e5668.jpg

February 20, 2015 on Kim Gordon Trashes Lana Del Rey: “[She] Doesn’t Even Know What Feminism Is”
I kinda call bullshit on that. Lana Del Rey is only ever playing a character when it suits her image. I feel her fans insist on this excuse to make up for the shit she does and says (kinda like Eminem's fans do), but it still doesn't change the fact the image she projects should be up for discussion just as any other artist should be. I don't like how Kim talked about this, but she has every right to criticize another female music artist talking bullshit about a cause she believes in, even if under the pretense of it all being an act.

I'm sure glad we have ourselves a man here to explain us feminism!

I had never read that LDR quote until now and just... wow. Just when you think she couldn't possibly get any worse...

Yeah, but I don't remember his verse on that one being "Katy, Imma let you finish, but Spielberg had the extraterrestrial of all time!".

But that's not necessarily a music category though. Actually, there are a few Grammy categories that aren't about music, because you don't need to be a musician to be recorded (hence the existence of a Spoken Word Album category, or whatever that's called).
