    Carly Rae Jepsen - The Loveliest Time / The Loneliest Time

    The background vocals on the chorus sound so much like Melanie C.

    MARINA (& the Diamonds)

    I actually prefer the new version. There were some issues in the music video version - the backing track felt super choppy.

    Steps

    Agree with this. The greatest hits and celebration feels like it’s happening because 25 is a nice number, and usually a milestone (more so than 30). They seem to be in a good space where they are able to work and have time to themselves and their own projects, and a lot of goodwill and success...

    Steps

    A concert ticket is actually a great no-brainer present between 30-something friends, and keeping in mind people are more likely to part with their money during the holiday period means it's a win-win.

    Melanie C - (Self-titled)

    This is great, and I love her playing with her own iconography in the video - I just wish they pushed it a bit farther. I'd have liked to see her re-create a few more looks or have something happen with/to the statues.

    The Pussycat Dolls

    Charming is absolutely the word to describe the feature, one of my favorite rap verses on a pop song. Snoop made the song better than it already was (which is hard to do) and the naming of the dolls felt natural and was kind of genius - most of my friends who don't know anything about pop music...

    The Pussycat Dolls

    I'm finding it difficult to believe people are finding any fault with this performance - when was the last time a girlband (or any act, really?) pulled off something so spectacular and arresting? These women - some of whom in their forties, one of which birthed a human being through a major...

    The Pussycat Dolls

    Great post all around, but this is it. These are grown women and I am fairly certain they've set up a system where they all come out of this for the better; they're probably sharing profits more equally and they can all focus on doing what they do best / want to do. The history you recounted is...

    Marina And The Diminishing Returns - Love + Fear

    Didn't she say Karma originally sounded very NSYNC?

    Travel

    I went to Japan for two weeks on my own. It was great. A little weird at first and at times lonely, as I'm so used to traveling with friends, but the overall experience is incredibly positive! Since then I've always tried to do a short trip somewhere once a year on my own, even if it's for a...

    Taylor Swift - Lover

    Even her use of that (amazing) Cher quote seems misguided. It was uttered by a woman of color who came up in the 60's and 70's against the odds and has continuously worked hard to be where she is, and the quote coming from her had weight. Taylor using it to describe herself is almost offensive...

    Cheryl

    Frankly speaking, Sarah seems the most down to earth member of the entire group who has never been part of any drama. Even when the other members made things messy, she wasn't mentioned once as an instigator or participant. Throughout Girls Aloud and her personal issues, she was always...

    Carly Rae Jepsen - Dedicated + Side B

    Killer vocal. The choreography during the first chorus is giving me full orange_trees.gif

    Oh my god, I LOVE Molly. Her attitude is everything and ...is kind of iconic.

    Marina And The Diminishing Returns - Love + Fear

    Froot doesn't cover similar themes at all though? On the surface it may sound positive but one of the things I love about it lyrically is that it is still laced with anxiety and a sense of urgency and inflated ego - the whole parallel of her being like a fruit is that she's feeling great and...

    Marina And The Diminishing Returns - Love + Fear

    I feel bad mentioning that now! She was otherwise very reflective and well spoken and incredibly sweet and gracious!

    Marina And The Diminishing Returns - Love + Fear

    Yes. I definitely didn't think it came from any negative space at all, and perhaps used by mistake (with her comparing her currently with how she used to be), but as you mentioned, I would have hoped she would have used a better word considering she has, and still does, champion mental wellness.

    I winced. The host actually corrected her choice of words.

    Marina And The Diminishing Returns - Love + Fear

    This is very well put. I attended her talk on Friday, and though I loved every minute of it (and got to ask her a question!), I did feel like she was playing down the mental health aspect that is so a big part of her brand. She steered all the conversations into being happier now and 'normal'...
