Selena Gomez may be a bad liar, but she's a great pop star 


There is so much to love about Selena Gomez's new song, Bad Liar: The way the lyrics trip over themselves like a lovestruck teenager; the brazen lift of Talking Heads' Psycho Killer; the borderline ridiculousness of the lyric: "like the battle of Troy, there's nothing subtle here."

Oh, and the post-chorus hook "all my feelings on fire, guess I'm a bad liar," is an early contender for pop moment of 2017. 
Selena has never been a big belter in the vocal department but, like Janet Jackson before her, she's turned that into an asset. This subtle, sultry groove has an whispered intimacy that, say, Adele could never hope to achieve.

Well it's true, despite her supposed lack of talent she managed to outdo every other release this month in both originality and quality.

The first time I heard the song, I hated it. But that hook - "all my feelings on fire, guess I'm a bad liar" - kept me coming back to the song and now I absolutely love it. She did THAT :jonny:

It reminds me a little of "I mean I could, but why would I want". When a line can make an entire song. Iconic.

Proves you don't need powerhouse vocals to be a good singer :gaycat5:

 

Her vocals remind me of Britney's vocals and that's why I'm such a fan of Selena :coffee:

I said something similar the other day... "You dont need to have powerhouse vocals to be a great musician." :)
