I personally thought it was disrespectful for them to do so dirty to Queen Mariah and I’m glad Ru didn’t let them get off the hook easily. But that’s probably the stan in me talking right now tbh.
It’s funny because as the episode was going on, I was telling my friend how I thought they all deserved to lip sync for their lives because they all did equally terrible and then the next thing I knew, they WERE! I was GAGGED!March 6, 2019 at 8:39 am #1202805981
After a very long wait, Mariah Carey’s A No No music video is finally coming out this Friday.
We’ll see if the rumors/speculation are true about it being a potential remix with Cardi (or Lil Kim/Missy Elliot).March 1, 2019 at 7:01 am #1202800128
Shallow previously peaked at #5 when it was released and it will repeak even higher this week, potentially reaching #1 with no airplay.
You omitted an important part of my comment. If you read my whole response, you’d see I was talking about Pop radio in that paragraph.
I’m well aware Shallow is very successful without Pop support, but you cannot deny the fact that it did not go past Top 20 on that format. Fortunately, the single connected really well with the consumers but without a film, I am not sure how her next album/single will fare…Especially if she does not get enough Pop support. Which is why I said in the last sentence in that she should do something that appeal to everyone, meaning Pop radio and the consumers. Maybe she could continue the folk sound but make it Poppy enough to please Pop radio. Or be exciting and evolve the sound once again!March 1, 2019 at 6:43 am #1202800100
I apologize but I’m hoping for an evolution of sound in the next album. I do not want a continuation of Joanne and I’m fairly certain most of her fans would agree. Gaga used to make creative, perfectly Pop crafted songs and it’d be cool if she tried something new instead of sticking to the same old formula like she used to do when she first broke out in stardom. She used to be this hot commodity when she changed and reinvented herself every era. This is what made her very exciting.
Not just that, I find it hard to believe Pop radio will show support if she continues the folk/country pop sound. None of the Joanne singles went beyond Top 15 (Perfect Illusion was a fluke because it had a radio deal) and even Shallow, a single from a popular film with massive customer demand, couldn’t go past Top 20. Gaga and her team needs to think this one through and make something that’ll appeal to everyone if they want to regain Pop support.February 28, 2019 at 1:27 pm #1202799209
First of all, I accidentally liked Xtina’s comment. Gold Derby should allow taking back a like lol. But anyways, I actually disagree. Taylor was out of the spotlight for awhile now. She kept it very low-key the entire era.
Second, I am excited for TS7. I think it’ll be a return of form. Reputation was obviously something she needed to do. I believe the next release will be light, and something we all came to love Taylor for.February 27, 2019 at 7:46 am #1202797261
The awards were a mess this year but here’s my two least favorite wins:
1. Green Book winning Best Picture…what the hell? The film was not worthy or deserving.
2. Bohemian Rhapsody winning Best Editing…is this a joke? Their editing was abysmal.February 25, 2019 at 8:04 am #1202793627
^^^ Wow, she and those who back her up can be annoying, but no one else can? When did that become the rule? Anyway, I have never totally trashed your favorite. I’ll admit that she is a good writer, but considering how the rest of her is, once I am past her writing, I guess that I am past her and if my opinion of her happens to not sit well with other people, oh well, I’ve seen the way that they are about those that they do not care about. If they didn’t want me in the game, why did they take the time to show others, like myself for example, how to play it? God bless you always!!! Holly
Here’s some of the few examples you’ve said about Kacey in the past…
“I will never get what people find so fascinating about her. Her songwriting may be the only thing that I will ever be able to give her credit for.”
“I changed the station during her performance too. I’ve been in bed for most of the day because I got sick and thew up after church and so my goal was to not barf again. Obviously whoever took the stage after Kacey doesn’t care who they make hurl so I changed the station when I saw how nasty they decided to be too.”
“Y’all who are mad about Kacey getting the big award tonight, just keep this mind. Awards are not what get the bills paid and the awards are pretty much all that she has because she is almost never played on the radio and her albums have not really sold that well according to her page here either. (trying not to laugh)
“Eric Church has some pep to his voice and maybe radio’s intention is to not have those who are out there driving end up falling asleep behind the wheel.”
“You did get one thing right though, what they named the big winner couldn’t be more of a sleep inducing bore fest.”
“Y’all here who do not care for Kacey, thank you for letting me know that I am not the only one who finds her to be lame and uninteresting. (hug)”
I’d say you’ve trashed her in some of them tbh…February 25, 2019 at 6:34 am #1202793430
The ceremony was a complete mess.
Bohemian winning a lot of awards, including Best Editing was a complete joke. Did they not see the same film that had a horrendous 500+ switch back-and-forth scenes within a minute?! It gave me a headache. The only award I was fine with it winning was for Rami who gave a great performance.
Close losing Best Actress was absolutely saddening and a shock. This was her time, and I don’t know if she’ll ever be rewarded by the Academy. She is more than deserving of that Best Actress title, not a “Supporting” or a Honorary one. (I’ll say that I was glad it went to Colman not anyone else though).
Green Book winning the Best Picture…HA! Can someone come back to the stage and tell them they read the wrong envelope? (At least they didn’t award it to BR which would’ve been much worse tbh)February 25, 2019 at 6:24 am #1202793410
I’m floored they gave it to Colman. I truly thought it was Close’s time. She had the narrative, hype, and the precursors. And not just that, her performance in The Wife was absolutely mesmerizing, and hauntingly beautiful. So, I’m a little sad for Close. This was her time. But honestly, if it wasn’t Close, I’m glad it went to Colman. She gave a powerhouse performance and was as deserving (even though I stand by with what I said earlier about her role being having the “Supporting Actress” amount of time).
I wonder if Close will get an eight nomination (likely Sunset Boulevard) and win, or if she’ll just get a honorary award. Either way, in a hindsight, I’m glad for Close, this loss did not go down badly. If anything it made her more of a winner. This whole awards seasons reminded everyone what kind of a legend she is, and I am fully confident Close will be receiving a lot more scripts and roles to play.February 22, 2019 at 6:54 am #1202784797
^^^ Kacey may release Grammy award winning material, but I have seen messages from people who have seen her live and they said that she was a sleep inducing bore fest. Maybe if she grew some pep, she would be taken more seriously as an actual entertainer.
I apologize, but I have to say that based on some of your previous posts, it is somewhat obvious you do not like and is biased against Kacey. I’ve went to her show once in the past and she was definitely not a “sleep inducing bore fest.”February 13, 2019 at 6:49 am #1202774440
I’ve been out of town for few days now and I’ve never been so eager to share my two cents –
AOTY: I’m THRILLED Kacey won. It was about time they actually awarded the most critcially acclaimed album of the year. Last year was a disgusting fluke (Kendrick should’ve won easily)
SOTY: I apologize, but how did TIA win with these lyrics? It’s a songwriting award, and it’s kinda baffling it won…It should’ve went to Shallow or The Joke imo.
ROTY: I was rooting for either ATS or TIA so I’m glad it went to one of them. TIA wholeheartedly deserved to win here, not SOTY.
BNA: I thought HER had it easily with the multiple nominations but Dua was a good winner and hopefully will avoid the curse. I can’t help but to think Ella Mai should’ve submitted into this category because I think she would’ve been a threat to win it.
Pop Solo: I’m gagged. I think we all can say that no one expected Joanne to win at all. Poor Camila, she probably thought she had a shot at winning by opening the show lol
Pop Duo/Group: The second this aired, I knew Gaga lost the SOTY. But her speech was moving and nice to hear. Zedd/Maren should’ve submitted to Dance Recording. They would’ve easily won over Silk City/Dua tbh.
Pop Album: It was expected. Unfortunately, I didn’t think Sweetener was that deserving. Her previous albums were better imo. I wish it went to either Meaning of Life or Beautiful Trauma instead.
Country Fields: Kacey had a very deserving sweep. This is a gigantic huge eff-you to Country radio for being blatantly conservative sexist and refusing to play her over the years.February 8, 2019 at 6:39 am #1202765100
Gaga will win everything because she’s white and her song is a conservative pick while her competition is exactly the opposite. Media outlets won’t say it’s racism this time for obvious reasons.
Shallow is a good song, and will rightfully deserve its awards. However, I do not think it should win the ROTY though. That award should go to All the Stars or maybe This Is America imo.February 8, 2019 at 6:35 am #1202765096
I do lol. I also know after Beyoncé lost to Adele, people haven’t been afraid to call out injustices with the Recording Academy. True tea sis. This year, when 6 of 8 are Rap and R&B and they still lose says a lot about who wins these awards.
But that’s the thing. Kacey literally has the best reviewed album of the year (out of the nominees), and would be a deserving winner. If she does win like I predict she will, she will rightfully do so. Kendrick should’ve definitely won for DAMN and TPAB but this year, while BP is top 3 out of the nominees for me, does not deserve it. But then again, that’s just my opinion.
Grammy’s obviously need an entire overhaul, to make R&B and Rap, and females a stronger contenders in all categories. I hope after this year they’re going to go through process to completely enforce diversity.February 7, 2019 at 10:09 am #1202764302
I took the time to listen through every album nominated and here’s how I rank them (to personal preference):
- Kacey Musgraves – Golden Hour
- Janelle Monae – Dirty Computer
- Brandi Carlile – By The Way I Forgive You
- Black Panther Soundtrack
- Cardi B – Invasion of Privacy
- HER – HER
The other two aren’t good at all and definitely are NOT worthy of being nominated tbh. I do think it’ll be between Kacey and Kendrick. It’ll be interesting to see if they reward it to Kacey who basically has the top reviewed album of the year (out of the nominees), and actually deserves it. Or if they’ll reward it to Kendrick who has yet to be awarded, for a soundtrack from a mega-popular film. Personally I wish they gave Kendrick the award for DAMN (and TPAB) because it’d feel like a cop out to give him this award especially when his solo work is beyond better and more deserving than this one. I also wish Janelle was a contender but with AOTY and Music Video nominations, I think it’s safe to say she’ll go empty-handed. I’m intrigued to see how things play out this Sunday!

The public who listen to radio don’t want to hear “Shallow”. The song has had terrible radio call outs!
First, it did not have terrible call outs. But it did have average ones, nothing superb. Look at Electricity, it ranks at the very last on the list, and yet, it was still able to go Top 15. Look at Sunflower, it has average call outs, similar to Shallow, and it’s going to hit #1 on Pop without a question. This is because its sales and streaming is stellar (and to extent with Post Malone being huge right now). Shallow has great sales and its streaming is not awful. In fact, it outperforms Electricity in ALL metrics except for radio. So, why did Pop drop it before it even went Top 20? There are several other examples I could compare it to, but I’ll bite my tongue for now.
I think Mediabase Call Outs are flawed. Just take basically every female song on Country. I cannot remember an instance when one of them was in the Top 10 on callouts (besides from Rich by Maren). Tell me how fair that is when Country never gives female vocalists a chance to be played more than just Top 30/40? I’d really like to know how Mediabase gather their data for their call outs and if they could improve their system.
