ABC running Black Panther without ads and a news special about Chadwick after so wouldn’t expect good ratings for the vmas. Especially since BTS and Gaga/Ariana are the only confirmed performers with a fanbase.August 29, 2020 at 2:53 pm #1203673949
Maybe Taylor won’t promote much cause this alternative image she dipped herself into now is more easy to keep online than in real life for her.August 28, 2020 at 1:44 pm #1203672535
The way that I can’t get enough of Club FN… it gets better every listen! Just because you pop fans don’t like it doesn’t mean it’s objectively trash.
Girl, get off your high horse saying “you pop fans” while rocking a Taylor avi. These beats from The Blessed Madonna and some others on Club FN sound like they’re from a thirtheen year old boy who just downloaded his first DJ software at home.August 27, 2020 at 12:01 pm #1203670562
I don’t think she’s going full country so soon probably after 3-4 more albums
why do you think she chose terrible singles for rep and lover?Did she think they would do well or something?
Taylor is great at marketing usually, but her bad single picks were also cause she got too focused on marketing. Ready For It cause of football, End Game cause it had two hitmakers, YNTCD for pride month. She should have thought less about campaigns and more what were actually the best songs. And then ME! was cause she probably wanted a big La La Land esque cinematic song.August 27, 2020 at 10:40 am #1203670448
I really feel bad for her. Fortunately she’s moving away from the success driven mindset and will now focus on motherhood.
She’s worth like 200 million, she can do whatever she wants with the rest of her life. She has a kid and a husband. No need to feel bad. Most female popstars still fade away after 30 anyway so she’s not alone.August 27, 2020 at 10:36 am #1203670437
It’s crazy that this time, last year, we had H.E.R., Lover and NFR! right at the last weeks of the eligibility period, while this year we only folklore and that was in July. 2020 truly did not come to play.
Well we’re in a pandemic and civil crisis.August 26, 2020 at 1:40 pm #1203668967
Well, that’s not the BRP, it’s all the voters who would choose it.
But yeah. If the BRP had balls, they would give BLINDING LIGHTS only a ROTY nom to make room for interestingly written songs in SOTY.
Thats not having balls, you just want Cardigan to win.August 26, 2020 at 2:22 am #1203668053
I feel like they’ll add more black artists to the AOTY line-up to seem more diverse, but that increases the chance of a pop winner. No one cares about the nominations being diverse if we have a safe winner. Taking out either Roddy or The Weeknd would really open the path to lead one of them to victory.
Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial
Fetch the Bolt Cutters
Not a prediction, just to showcase the line-up here would show Roddy as the clear frontrunner.August 25, 2020 at 1:39 pm #1203667112
Divide was snubbed and rightfully. A Star Is Born being out was more a move to open the way for Billie to sweep and I am sure this is what Interscope wanted. They gave a SOTY nom for a song of the soundtrack and kinda made up for that.
Well the fact it’s a surprise release also causes some inevitable thoughts back to how Beyonces Lemonade lost while also including an entire film. This time there’s no one like Adele to stop Folklore. I seriously doubt if it gets nominated that it won’t win. So they’ll definetely think it through before they put it in the line-up. It’s not a shoe-in. There will be debate. They could also keep her out and toss her a SOTY nom instead since she’s mostly praised for her songwriting skills.August 25, 2020 at 1:24 pm #1203667086
It will be nominated, it is too big of an album to be rolled over. She is not doing any campaigning and it kinda confuses me, maybe she thinks she doesn’t want to be seen as desperate for Grammys.
They took out Divide and A Star Is Born so they’re not afraid to go there. Sure, Divide was originally panned but it spawned one of the biggest hits of the decade unlike Folklore which is still hitless. So it had different things going for it. The fact Taylor won twice before is definitely her biggest vulnerability. It could be that Taylor will be lucky that Deborahs rant last year will leave the academy a bit more afraid to pull obvious snubs again right away tho.August 25, 2020 at 11:45 am #1203666945
Honey, the reviews are abysmal.
Katy ending with the exact same career trajectory as Xtina. Strong debut, peaked with their 2nd album, good third album, flopped fourth album but people still cared that it flopped and then everybody stopped checking by the fifth.August 24, 2020 at 2:28 pm #1203665183
I think the issue with focusing solely on an album is that we tend to remember hits more easily than albums. There are a lot less classic albums than classic songs and most classic albums are remembered because of their hits. So in the long run when Taylors career is over Folklore will probably not be a huge part in Taylors legacy (unless if she pushes an other song). So I wouldn’t say skipping it over would be regarded as a mistake later.
