Today P!nk released her sixth studio album, The Truth About Love, and it has addiction written all over it. With the help of collaborators Eminem, Lily Allen, and Nate Ruess (lead vocalist of Fun.), the established singer offers up some of her original sounding songs, a few ballads, and even a No Doubt, ska inspired tune. If you’re looking for some typical P!nk vocals check out True Love (feat. Lily Allen), How Come Your Not HereHere Comes the Weekend (feat. Eminem), and Timebomb. They all are instantly recognizable P!nk hits just like her first single Blow Me (One Last Kiss), which was released back in July. The Get the Party Started singer also shows a softer side with ballads like her latest single TryJust Give Me a Reason (feat. Nate Ruess), Beam Me UpThe Great Escape, and (song title aside) Chaos  and P**s. The title song, The Truth About Love, offers a new sound that deviates from P!nk’s usual work. While listening to the song its hard to distinguish who it’s by. You may find yourself thinking that you’re listening to a No Doubt tune. However, this only adds to P!nk’s credit, that she is an artist who is willing to try different genres of music. As you may recall, P!nk got her start in the music industry as a rapper. So what are the best songs from the album? Aside from her already hugely popular single Blow Me (One Last Kiss), the songs Slut Like You, Walk of Shame, and Try seem to have the greatest potential. Slut Like You and Walk of Shame will have you throwing personal dance parties while Try evokes powerful emotion that may have you crying. 





Lady Gaga: the King of Pop?

The other night Lady Gaga was seen leaving the Philip Treacy fashion show sporting Michael Jackson’s original jacket which he wore to the 1991 Academy Awards. The Queen of Twitter pulled the look off with her own sense of style; wearing a set of Mickey Mouse ears on top. What’s even more intriguing about this choice of clothing is that Madonna was Jackson’s date the night he wore the now famous blazer.

Now, unless you’ve been hibernating under a rock for the past year, you know that tensions between the 80’s pop queen and the Pokerface singer have been high. So was Gaga trying to make yet another statement, this time directed toward Madonna? Perhaps Gaga is letting Madonna hold the title of Queen, while she goes ahead and becomes King. As history shows, the Queen has usually been at the mercy of the King. May the battle of the pop royalty continue!
