I buy records, because of the music and hers is not enjoyable for me and the live performance doesn't elevate her to another level for me unless she does something extraordinary. As said in the other thread. She isn't even that energetic, because the audience doesn't really react to or interact with her.
I'm kind of with you ... I don't like too much of her music, and the songs of her I do like (check on it, work it out) I give more credit to pharrell and swizz beatz than her
that said, I think if you compare her to the other acts like her (britney, justin timberlake, gaga, janet jackson, madonna) she puts on a pretty entertaining show
