    Prince can kiss my ass. LAP is brilliant because of Madonna and Patrick Leonard

More artists should learn from this strategy.
    Yeah ... if only the music quality could match the brilliance of the marketing strategy though

    Nelly’s best albums and music will always belong to her first two eras

    Yeah that was a perfectly orchestrated era. She was HUGE and everyone had a favorite song.

    Isn't it a bit stereotypical to assume that he's a gay just because he fell into the more feminine spectrum? I mean, there are masculine gay men and feminine straight men.

    Just as i never liked Eminem
    Feminem is double trouble: he’s made countless homophobic remarks AND he hates black women.

    Probably the reason why he’s teased Kween for so long.

    The homophobia thing with Prince started when he converted to being a Jehovah Witness around 2001 or so. It never there before then. He said some stuff towards his former bandmates, Wendy & Lisa that was homophobic. He stopped saying stuff like that(at least in public) and him and Wendy and & Lisa made up(they contributed to his 2007 album, Planet Earth).
    I never knew about what he said to his bandmates, the first whiff I got of his homophobia was the 2008 New Yorker article. He kept mum about these types of issues for the rest of his life.

    Here she had hits with Sweet But Psycho, So Am I and now with Alone. Hope there will be more to follow.

    yass, daddy Adam. I've been stanning them since 2003. I used to like Ed Sheeran during his first album and his second also... but he lost me when he got 1,000,000 songs onto every nation's singles chart and became bubblegum pop.

    I've never stanned for Miss Madonna... But I love her deeply now... and still think that 99% of what she does is actually visionary and great.

    Well, that's a bit unfortunate but I just checked his Wikipedia page and seems like he's going through the same phase as many of the other UK X-Factor winners, isn't he? Massive in the beginning but slowly disappears into the bubbling under a few albums later.

    Wait I just checked Shayne Ward's Spotify artist page and apparently his top city is actually from my country. Didn't realize he was that popular over here.

    Edit: Wait all his top 5 cities are actually in South East Asia. We really do stan ballads apparently.

    "No U Hang Up" is also another nice slow jam and is my personal favorite actually. I just couldn't seem to find the official upload on YouTube.
