This has been done before, why not bring the old thread to life instead

And how can you even start to compare them, they are at different ends of the music spectrum.. Totally crazy if you ask me. But if this thread keeps the adele stans out of the regular taylor swift threads then I am all for it

Is this a way of keeping your darling Adele 'relevant' seeing that Taylor is huge at the moment?

Haha no im a rirty im a fan of both more Adele though i just thought it'd be a good idea to remove the stans from threads in relation to both to keep them in context but i see people would rather bemoan and bitch about this thread too so u can't win

However much you spin it there is no common ground between taylor and adele (or their fans), you could not find two artists that are more different in every aspect

Taylor is a professional beard. The few straight guys she does date is only for song writing purposes.

I'm not sure you will succeed, as I'm not sure the thread adresses what I see as underlying reason. I can't speak for everyone, but I have no need to compare Taylor and Adele. Nor do I have desire to bash Taylor (and I don't think I ever did it). Not my type of music so I don't really have much interest in her. It doesn't mean I have a need to criticize her. But I might feel tempted under certain circumstances.

I'm basically reacting to some people belittling, ok, call it as it is, bashing, Adele. If they stop, perhaps the "discussions" will stop.

Of course, statements type "Taylor is the greatest star in the world" also make me react, but probably they wouldn't if the same people who say it (bow to... you know who you are) would leave Adele alone. I'm a stan, you know. Still, probably there is will reactions considering that many think that the statement is delusional.

How did the Taylor v Adele comparisons come about on here? I find it odd that they are compared, when they're completely different.

I'm not sure as to how but in tems of context both are firmly steeped in failed relationship= new album

Jealous Adele stans started the comparisons many moons ago

Your right, its a crazy comparison, you would get a better match comparing adele to say the muppets like than to taylor swift.

you started the comparisons, not adele fans and you got more and more bitter as adeles success eclipsed taylor swifts

I wonder where Tyler will be on next years under 30s rich list. She topped it this year and everyone was expecting Gaga to top it next year but now I think Tyler has probably locked down the title again.

No contest. Adele has a far superior voice.

I am not worried who sold what amount of records, generally I prefer Adele, probably because for me, her music is sort of more grown up.
I love Taylor's safe & sound track though, and to be fair I haven't listened to her latest album, so there could be some good tracks on there that I will like.
Wasn't really into Adele until her 21 album, which I loved every track & bought her 19 album on the strength of this, but for me 19 was not as good as 21.
Really don 't get why fans are so nasty about other artists, there is plenty of room in this world for all sorts of music.

You youngsters are obsessed with sales figures as if they're some kind of indicator of quality.

However much you spin it there is no common ground between taylor and adele (or their fans), you could not find two artists that are more different in every aspect
Really? What about, erm, Donald Fagen and Electro Hippies, for example?

that sales figure was used in response to someone claiming adele was irrelevant, sales figures indicate relevance, i agree with you that they dont indicate quality as taylors turgid country shite with inane and childish lyrics has sold over 20 million
