    She was born in New Jersey. She's not an immigrant. People are really saying this? What places are you visiting where Larry Fishburne playing a thankless role was considered a negative, Stormfront? And trust me, people are complaining, and a good majority of 'em are doing it in the most...

    POP MUSIC THREAD: Taylor Swift officially joins us

    Probably because Richardson being a massive scumbag is more public knowledge now, and because the video contains a scene that supposedly looks like sexual abuse. There's also the fact it features R. Kelly, an actual sex offender, as the perpetrator. Both these men pick up enough heat already...

    POP MUSIC THREAD: Taylor Swift officially joins us

    Look at the Billboard Hot 100. It's barely changed. John Legend and Pharrell keep swapping out over the top spot, a lot of songs from 2013 are still on there ("Let It Go", "Pompeii" [although to be fair that's only just reached the Hot 100 this year], "Demons", "Talk Dirty", "Dark Horse"), and...

    General Dr. Who Thread

    This would be fine if RTD actually gave her more characterisation than "has crush on Doctor". Seriously, every episode had at least one scene where she pines for him, an impression not helped by how much the Doctor kept bringing up Rose. Rose cast a long shadow over Martha, making her seem like...

    Mariah made "Beautiful". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USF55GUALyQ I'm sorry, everything else you could say falls down with this, the best Springsteen-meets-Phil-Spector song never made by Springsteen or Spector. Also, if you hate your pop stars for being assholes, where do you stand on...

    That's a funny way of saying "Mariah Carey" there. She has a ridiculous range and makes it sound effortless. Aguilera just oversings every note.

    General Dr. Who Thread

    People who have wrote for Doctor Who, like Paul Cornell, have freely admitted the continuity of the show doesn't matter. The BBC have never actually stated what is "canon" and what isn't. You think RTD cared when he made the Master a giggling psychopath who was deliberately made a psychopath by...

    House of Cards

    Not had a chance to watch either season. I'm more familiar with the BBC original, which is excellent, and arguably the best role of the late Ian Richardson's career. Provided Kevin Spacey makes Frank Underwood a very different creature to Francis Urquhart, I should be OK. Out of interest, who...

    General Dr. Who Thread

    Doctor Who hasn't really dipped its toe into satire that often. There's The Curse of Peladon, an allegory exploring the issue of whether Britain should join the EU, The Sun Makers might be a comment on increased taxation, Vengeance on Varos came about during the video nasty scare, and of course...

    Call me back when she actually has another solo hit. Then we'll talk.

    I've seen "*****" used as a general term, regardless of gender. (See also: Jesse Pinkman) Pretty sure everyone, male or female, has added it onto the end of their sentences at some point. Also, that part of the song is pretty much about Beyoncé and how awesome it is being Beyoncé; she mentions...

    I can play this game too! You're telling me Perry's brand of weaksauce clichés is any more meaningful? At least Gaga presents herself as mostly artifice and compensates with a larger-than-life personality. Perry has yet to display any sign of personality apart from teeth-grindingly awful...

    Not recently, haven't had the time. Also, there's been a real dearth of good RPGs.

    You obviously have more of a tolerance for Christian pop than the rest of us.

    The Beatles started as a straight-up Merseybeat group who cherrypicked their ideas from Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry. The music they initially played wouldn't have been possible without Berry, or Ike Turner. Their greatest contributions to rock music are their use of formal experimentation, such...

    Batman and Superman: New Batman...is Ben Affleck?

    Christian Bale didn't want to do another film as Batman. That's it. He and Nolan insisted on keeping The Dark Knight Trilogy separate from any other superhero franchise.

    I can't believe I live in a world where a soundtrack can include The National, Ellie Goulding, and Antony & the Goddamn Johnsons, but I sure am glad.

    So I finally listened to "Roar". Good goddamn, I've seen Katy Perry be arrogant and obnoxious, but those are attitudes she wears well. I never expected her to be this dull. It's a song all about shouting proudly, but it's sung with so little energy and enthusiasm, and is full of such rote...

    YES. The theme song for evil is dethroned. Also relevant, this Popjustice article on what should be the next Gaga single. I'm inclined to agree.

    Can somebody please kill "Blurred Lines" already? There are roaches that don't take this long to go away.
