    • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) July 13, 2012

      haha Lana del Rey´s Born to Die is among my favorites of 2012.
      “Ceremonials” by Florence would be if it wasn´t from last part of 2011.
      I´m intrigued about No Doubt
      Loving Frank Ocean´s one
      I can´t wait for Mariah Carey
      And Madonna was a letdown to me

      • Suicide Blonde July 13, 2012

        I’m intrigued about No Doubt too, Mariah should release a single soon, i don’t know why so much mystery, i think she is planning something big this time.

      I LOVE LP ! I’ve been a fan of theirs for a while, they’re really good at what they do. Didn’t know The Killers were releasing an album this yr, gotta check for that.

      • Suicide Blonde July 13, 2012

        Yeah! i love LP, a fan since day one, The Killers new single “Runaways” is out now.

    • Mobwife July 14, 2012

      I love how certain ppl are praised no matter what garbage they produce. There’s nothing like the SMOKE & MIRRORS of today’s music industry. LOL

      The SCREECHING of Bruce Springsteen during his last televised Award Show performance was AWFUL but he’s the “boss” so it’s all good in the american media. I say the same of the AWFUL Beach Boy onstage reunion eveyone in the media simply loved….eeek!

      Linkin Park’s CD sounds pretty much like their last effort! Funny, when ppl say that about some acts they call it no growth or progress but hey, it’s Linkin Park so we would never hear those words uttered abt them in the american media or a blog site!

      Now, you’re talkin –> Marilyn Manson & if NIN would drop something new, I’d be happy to hear it. 🙂

    wow I´m not saying she´s bad but her songs sound constantly the same again and again for the last few years, don´t they? Just asking. The same structure

    • Suicide Blonde July 13, 2012

      I agree but her lead singles are the most weak songs of her albums, don’t know why but she always choose a weak lead single.

    • Mobwife July 14, 2012

      BINGO, and you will be the only CRITIC to ever say it!! Watch the reviews of her new CD boast and brag about her return to music after motherhood. “Motherhood” is the key term. We cannot criticize “pAnk” MUSICALLY now that she’s a mother, becareful!

  3. JoJo (istan4rihanna) July 13, 2012

    im sorry pink but this stuff is sounding the same

  4. Ugh July 13, 2012

    Not feeling it.

  5. ThatGrapefruitJuice July 13, 2012

    Yesssss. I LOVE IT and trust me when I say this will be a surefire hit and radio will have this song as a main menu. This song will be devoured and Pink is QUEEN!

  6. KAT DELUNA FAN July 13, 2012

    It’s cute,I like it

  7. aishaaguilerakeys July 13, 2012

    Ooooooooo, the shade. MJ being the king and her the queen. Oh well, she’s lasted in the game long enough to call herself what she wants. The song doesn’t sound bad, I’ll have to listen to the full version though.

    • Ugh July 13, 2012

      She could be talking about Elvis………………

    • Suicide Blonde July 13, 2012

      I think that was a reference to Elvis.

      • beyonce Manager July 13, 2012

        beyonce is the queen

    • Nik July 13, 2012

      Michael Jackson is the king Levi’s pah least mj toured and hewas genius

      • Nik July 13, 2012

        Silly iPad not Levi’s I mean elvis mj the king and icon 4 ever

      • Mobwife July 14, 2012

        I doubt if she was talking about Elvis. Once ppl run her over for this song and trying to compare herself and her lackluster career to that of the KING, Michael Jackson, she will probably try to throw Elvis in the mix! Either way this colorful clown will NEVER BE THE QUEEN! The queen of what fools? pAnk sit down…..

  8. ThatGrapefruitJuice July 13, 2012

    Phuck u leeches. Im only here for likes ie. +3 +4 +5 etc. Get it straight. Pink babyyyyyyy.

  9. Gees July 13, 2012

    As much as i love Pink, i have to agree it just sounds like any other one of her songs.

    I was really curious about how motherhood and domesticity would modify her persona/ image but i see she’s hell-bent on sticking to that pop -rock rebel fad. You live in a manshion with a husband and a 1 year old Pink. That pill is now too big too swallow. Im not looking forward to this era as much anymore. The records sound uninspired and redundant to me. I still wish her success regardless. Maybe when she realises she has nothing more to prove, she’ll gimme that soulful introspective record that’s innate within her.

    I haven’t enjoyed Pinks music since “Missundazstood”…..she needs to do something different.
