Wow, Gaga slayed at the Super Bowl with the national anthem. But Queen Bey is coming up...

Beyonce's Formation video looks cool although I don't like the song much since I'm not a fan of trap music myself. I'm hyped for Beyonce's SB performance however. :D

Has anyone listened to Pillow Talk yet? I'm surprised I like the song as much as I do. I didn't particuarly care for Zayn when he was in One Direction and I didn't think I was going to like his solo stuff either but Pillow Talk sure has surprised me.

The video on the other hand was a complete mess.

Yeah, it's a really good song, and I'm surprised that it just debuted at number one. I'm not expecting him to be the next Justin Timberlake or anything, but if he's making this kind of music then I'm interested in whatever he has coming up.

Well the Super Bowl was fun but now I'm ready for new music from Gaga since Rih has already released and Beyonce is on the verge of releasing another album soon too. :p

Can we please get the older, old forum back?

Really don't see why people are so hyped about Gaga at the SuperBowl. The beginning was good, the way a national anthem should be sung, and then she started to belt everything as if she were in an opera and sounded like a mix between Cher and Celine Dion, doing out of place Whitney Houston ad-libs and runs all over the place and then made the choice to sing the last line twice for some reason.. While looking like some weird younger version of the late Joan Rivers in an oversized gaudy suit..

I obviouly know she can sing and she sung on key, but I just didn't understand nor agree with her choices here. In my mind, I just thought that she thought: "If I go loud enough, people will like it more. If I sing the words louder, then it comes over as more patriotic, you know what, lets turn the outfit red, my hair white and my nails blue!"

Really, I was just ticking down the boxes: "will they show random shots of the army?", yup! "will they show a group of jets flying overhead at a strategically placed phrase?" Yup! I also can't stand why people's love for the military somehow means they can shout during a national anthem. I also simply don't understand why the military keeps being involved with the SuperBowl anyway. Sport should not be linked to the military or nationalism. But that might be an odd cultural thing. Imagine the UN-forces showing up during the Olympics opening ceremony.. Nope, they don't. But when there's a big sports event in the US, the military must be involved in some way or another - every single time.

And yet actual experts and musicians praised her performance, so as far as I'm concerned she did well.

I honestly was shocked that it went to number one. I mean, it's great for him but for first single, that's seriously crazy. Good for him though.

I honestly thought Gaga did a very good job and I'm not even a fan of hers. Plus, so many music critics have praised her performance as well so...

I'm kind of excited for the Grammys cuz it seems like all the heavy hitters like Taylor and Adele are performing. Also the David Bowie tribute should be good as well. :D

So Ariana Grande decided to change her upcoming album's name to Dangerous Woman.

I'm not sure I really like this new name. It sounds fierce, but I like the gentler-sounding Moonlight.

^ Taylor Swift is amazing :)

So has anyone heard Meghan Trainor's new song? I kind of like it, even if it reminds me too much of Problem.

I heard No but sadly I don't like it. It's okay though as I still love Meghan a lot and look forward to her album. I wonder when will it be released.

Well, the sticky said I can bump this.

Any Shawn Mendes fans? I think his songs are really catchy and he even sounds like early Justin Timberlake. I think he IS the Justin Timberlake of our generation. Kids awesome.

Isn't he that guy who's using Camila as a prop to promote their duet? Their whole 'relationship' seems fake and it distracts from Shawn's music.
