spidermann: toddism: that was autotuned out the arse.

Compare the amount she used in the Cooper song to the amount she usually uses... not nearly as much and more of her actual voice comes out.

Never said her part wasn't autotuned, but it is a lot less than she usually uses and does show off more of her rock vocal style than the usual shiat she pumps out. So yes, it surprised me that she can actually sing and that was the song that proved it for me.

Also; just about everyone uses auto tune now to some degree, including the greats. Ozzy, Meat Loaf, etc all have used it to varying degrees on albums. It is now a part of producing an album, whether we like it or not, especially as an artist gets older or road weary and is forced by contracts to pump out more albums.


dude, not only was that the worst alice cooper song i've ever heard, it was also the worst ke$ha song i've ever heard. now THATS saying something. she sing-talked her way through this one as well and i think its the lack of excessive autotune makes it obvious. biatch can't sing.

Not to mention that the melody is stolen from "Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes, but why keep piling on?

I was going to link to her performance in response to the "No one ever successfully covers 'Bohemian Rhapsody'" remark. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised by that performance and actually checked out some of her other live stuff on youtube. Girl can sing pretty damned well, makes me wonder why she sticks with so much of the pop stuff she does.

Pink can flat sing.

That actually kinda sucked.

Pink can't sing straight without doing that thing where she makes her voice crack or break on purpose. It's a cheap trick that doesn't enhance a performance.

"Somebody to Love" would be a much better test.

spidermann: Ke$ha CAN sing.

Proof?

Her with Alice Cooper. She pops in at about one minute in.

THAT song wowed me and made me believe that if Ke$ha went rock n roll girl, dropped the auto tune, she could be bigger than she is. I also feel the same about Lady Gaga; chick can sing her ass off but is just singing the wrong music.


Came here to say this. Nicole Scherzinger also did a song with Alice and Slash, and she too can sing. It's the labels making them use stupid ass autotuners.

That's the shape women often turn after having a baby. They lose their the cinch at the waist. Britney Spears is the same, although she tries to hide it with surgery, costuming, and lots of photoshop. Maybe she was teen pregnant.

Funny to think she would have been praised for having that flat an arse not too long ago. Now you have to have a bubble butt or you're not hot. Also funny to think that men actually believe that what they find attractive is some sort of unchanging universal truth that is in no way influenced by marketing. The popularisation of rap and RnB from the 80s (you can thank Yo! MTV Raps) influenced all these lame white guys who hate rap and RnB (and are scared of black people) and now they think they like big butts because it's that's just what everyone likes, and not because the popular media sold that image to them.

Not complaining, just constantly amused by people's blindness to their utter sad susceptibility to marketing and pornography. See also: thongs, Brazillians, fake tans, Ryan Reynolds.

Really really good cover (actually a remix I guess).

Well, actually, there are some aspects to beauty that are universally appealing. In this particular instance, waist-to-hip ratio seems especially relevant. Although culturally, preferences vary from 0.6 to 0.8 (with Indo-Europeans favoring a ratio of 0.7). Based on those photos, methinks she's approaching 1.0, which no one finds attractive.
