  1. Ok but this edit made me love it now.
  2. The Official Charts Facebook page posted this (as expected) and it got more comments that their Facebook page usually does. But man, it's just so disappointing to read the negative comments about her look, work done, criticizing her mental health claims, and trashing her, etc. She definitely seems to bring out the worst trolls even on channels that usually get little to no interaction.

  3. It's giving you Radeon box art covergirl. It's giving you Graphics Processing Unit. Check your resolution and clock those pixels hunnies.

  4. Jesy is really in the “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” boat. Unfortunately, I feared that her opening up would fuel shittalking trolls instead of quelling it and it’s happening. I hope the single wins people over because if not…

  5. I’m baffled as to why anyone would accept that her first magazine cover as a solo artist should be... that. At least get her Fabulous or something.

  6. Me getting ready for the rollercoaster that this release is going to be.

  7. It’s giving me Tina Burner realness. Delete it.

  8. I just . . . don’t see this ending well for her. I’m almost scared for her?

  9. Not AVA in the name of the ride just while I was about to post it definitely looks like the Hell part from Ava's career opus: Heaven and Hell. Truly inspiring the girls during her debut era.

  10. The issue for me is that I don’t see her being able to pull off big album sales or big touring numbers. I could be totally wrong.

  11. It's a tough one to call because I don't think we've had a breakout star from a pop group for what feels like ages. Harry Styles is the only one that springs to mind but he's in a different position - his music isn't what I'd call straightforward pop, plus he has other strings to his bow with acting, fashion etc.

    It will definitely be interesting to see if Jesy can sustain a solo music career, but to be honest even if she is successful I can see her getting bored after a couple of years and giving it up to become a full-time 'celebrity'/influencer instead.

  12. I think it’s honestly going to be an uphill battle for her, considering she’s 30. Yes, it happened for JLo, Fergie and Gwen, but they were already household names when they debuted.

  13. This feels... ageist, and I’m not one to throw out this term flagrantly. This is pop music, not the NFL or NBA.
  14. But is it not true that female pop artists over 30 have a harder time finding success because the industry/society is ageist?

    That being said, I don't think that this phenomenon will be as apparent with Jesy. A lot of the time, ageism in pop music plays into the life cycle of a mainstream pop star altogether. I find there's, say, three to four albums before the pitchforks come out and there's a case of diminishing returns imbued by ageism (e.g. Katy Perry, Xtina) or the undeniable artistry cuts through the bullshit (e.g., Beyoncé).

  15. Yeah, I think the poster was trying to call out ageism rather than be agesit themselves. 30 is usually fine though I find. It's when the pop girlies hit the mid to late thirties that they often start to struggle getting the same support from what I've noticed.

  16. It's the sad truth especially in the UK. Radio 1 is allergic to playing women over 30 unless it's a 'throwback' segment or show but have no problem spamming Adam Levine all year long.

  17. Sis, I stan mostly popstars above 30 ddd I'm just saying that pop music, most especially radio is notorious for looking towards investing in younger artists, partly market-driven (because music's main market relates to younger artists) and partly ageism in radio and media.

    You can find quite a lot of artists who debuted in their teens/20s continue to find success (in varying degrees) in their 30s, but debuts are a different story.

  18. I can’t really think of many female popstars over the age of 35 who get regular Spotify playlist support - Pink, I guess and probably Beyoncé when she eventually releases a new album (I’m interested to see how they treat Katy when she releases something new).
