    I initially thought no one's going to buy into this Ed Sheeran transition into bubblegum pop. However, what do I know?

    Bank of America Stadium - Charlotte, North Carolina

    Confirmed for spring. Only a handful of concerts has been held there as it's hard to sell out. But if she sold 38K in Raleigh in north Carolina on the formation tour 48K shouldn't be hard to achieve in Charlotte since it's closer to south Carolina as well
    In Spring? Good luck selling out that venue you speak of. They better have a whole proper rollout and era planned because otherwise she'll serve an EMPTi World Tour debacle a la riri.

    Beyoncé's Oscar party has become the ultimate "go to party" i guess. At least Madonna passed the torch to the most talented lady in the business.

He'll be totally fine in case he flops and disappears but the thing is, soccer moms are more loyal than gheys. Plus, he had enough hits to tour and as long as he is able to tour, he'll be fine.

    I guess former bisexual Jessie J was right when she wrote the modern classic Nobody's Perfect.

    The problem with being as basic as Sheeran is that he'll have no one to fall back on when the GP inevitably moves on to the next ugly in 3-4 years. Frustrated, middle-aged soccer moms aren't the most loyal of fanbases. He'll flop hard and have a Katy-style mental breakdown. From that moment on, he'll wish he was Mariah and at least had the online forum gays on his side.

    Regarding Mariah Carey, you shall not disrespect the woman just like that. She is a great singer, songwriter and one of the best selling female artists of all time. Yes, she had some low points during her career, was seen as a joke at some point but she recovered nicely. Even everything she releases flop, her legacy will remain intact. Look at Whitney, she's known as one of the best voices ever. No one can deny her talent even though her last years were messy and people talked more about her drug use than her music. People calling them dusty just because they expect the same success as new artists are just delusional.

On the other hand, the artists that are really successful on the worldwide charts, hardly get much attention on here (e.g. Billie Eilish or Lewis Capaldi), so I don't know what the point of such discussions is.

I'm not gonna applaud anyone for being a talented dancer when after the show, they go molest children. Sorry, not sorry.
    Yeah I get it. It's a delicate situation because it was never really proven if he actually did that. But whatever the case could be sometimes bad people have talent, I mean Kevin Spacey (The Actor), he's a predator and he was removed from Hollywood after his scandals came out to light and he's disgusting indeed ... but I can't say he was a bad actor.

    ... Anyways, Michael has a bad reputation regarding of the truth, that can't be denied. But I also think Michael was a victim in life, a victim of fame and of the industry, he was done so bad and had such a horrible and abusive father, I think he was failed by so many people and circumstances to the point to it clearly mentally affected him, he was such a nice vibrant guy and ended up so weird and mentally ill. Somehow we blame him but sometimes society and people close to you fail you and have a part in the way you turn out. There wasn't anything in MJ's upbringing that could indicate he was going to be a "normal" guy.

    Michael has a bad reputation regarding his personal life but no one can deny he was a big talent, great producer, songwriter, vocalist, dancer, performer and visionary. In the early 80s he was simply ahead of his time and he was genuinly talented.

    People want to confuse things now and use his personal reputation against him as an artist, like if he was a bad artist.
