Let's see if third time is the charm. -- Zanimum (talk) 21:33, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

I hope it is :) XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 21:53, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

I've made a very slight run-on sentence in "Background and release". Passing it and "Composition", including the sample OGG. Passing images, both fair use and free. -- Zanimum (talk) 21:00, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

I noticed that, and thank you very much sir! XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 21:06, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for catching that! Giacobbe talk 21:10, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

Background and production

  • Shortened French radio info, it was mostly irrelevant to readers. What Katy says is more important than where she said it.
  • The quote at the end of the section is over dotted, three dots per occurence only, please.

  • felids is an unfamiliar term: why say that, as opposed to cats?
Wikipedia links cats as an actual household cat, felids are the actual family of larger cats (the ones shown in the video) Giacobbe talk 20:23, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Maybe it's best to just to simply say "large cats" and not link it. XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 20:27, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Or [[felids|big cats]]? Large felines is fine, but it's a tricky thing what to say here. -- Zanimum (talk) 00:55, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
  • "She comes across a broken robot (resembling a spaceman), which upon her kiss turns into a" --> "She comes across a broken robot, resembling a spaceman; upon her kiss it turns into a"
  • why is Pigeon capitalized? gazelle isn't. Only Latin names of animals are generally's capitalized, or English names of animals that have human names mixed in.
  • Vogue sunglasses... is that a brand, a style?
Vogue is a brand, though no Wiki page exists for it. Giacobbe talk 20:26, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

I recognize the logo, now that I Googled it. Interesting side note, Vogue Eyewear is owned by Luxottica, which owns Ray-Ban, Oakley, makes for Prada, Chanel, Armani... and then they own practically every eyewear chain: Bright Eyes, LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sears Optical, Sunglass Hut... good grief! -- Zanimum (talk) 00:53, 9 April 2014 (UTC)


  • Does Sal Cinquemani have other criticism of the video? The quote you've included seems rather docile.

Live performances and cover versions

  • What's a Walmart Soundcheck set? I haven't the foggiest. Is it online, is it at a store, is it a concert at Walmart head office?
  • Removed since it's hard to say exactly what those are. XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 20:39, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Googling this, it's easier to describe than you thought. Don't over think things, sometimes the answer is closer than you'd think. -- Zanimum (talk) 00:53, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
  • The tour should be mentioned first, even if these one-offs were earlier. It seems like an afterthought where it currently is placed.
  • Looks good. While this format isn't chronological, it's most important first. -- Zanimum (talk) 00:53, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Passing "Track listings and formats", "Credits and personnel", "Charts", "Certifications", "Release history", "See also", "External links". -- Zanimum (talk) 19:57, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Passing "Critical reception", "Commercial performance". References left, plus reviewing your changes. -- Zanimum (talk) 18:59, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

There is variance between references to Billboard. Sometimes it's "Billboard. Prometheus Global Media." and sometimes "Billboard (New York: Prometheus Global Media)." Are they even two different templates, perhaps? cite news and cite web?

None of the sources seems out of line to cite.

There are a few problem links. -- Zanimum (talk) 00:38, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

While cite web and cite news are somewhat different templates, I've made them all match now. Also removed dead links. Zanimum any last suggestions? XXSNUGGUMSXX (talk) 01:21, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
I think everything checks out now. GA! -- Zanimum (talk) 01:30, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
