There’s something fascinating about music stars who have a love/hate relationship with their career or even treat it with a little bit of disrespect. The big divas who after a couple of successful records, whether we're talking inter- or just nationally, dramatically announce the end of their career. Most of the time, they blame it … Continue reading Lily Allen: ripped ball gowns, cigarettes and salty lyrics
Coldplay – Everyday Life I try not to listen to Coldplay. Despite hating when people divide artists’ discographies into “good old” and “crappy new” stuff, I have to admit that Coldplay should have ended at its peak with Mylo Xyloto and the viral single Paradise. Or maybe even earlier, sometime around “Fix You”, which is … Continue reading The worst songs I heard in 2019
