Thank The Lorde

 

In a world of Kendall and Kylie Jenner it’s so freaking refreshing that Lorde exists. Lorde sings that song ‘Royals’ and she is the same age as Kylie Jenner. Kylie Jenner…um…posts a lot of pictures of her boobs on her instagram, her sister is a porn star, and her family has a reality show…not sure what she does. OH WAIT! She models. That’s right…she models with her sister…for a clothing line.

Lorde has a hit song/album and has this to say:

On her love of mainstream pop music:

“It’s magical. Why is it shameful to like this music, or write this music?”

But does she want to work with David Guetta?

“No. F— no. He’s so gross.”

On the accusations that her song “Royals” is racist:

“I mean, I was 15 when I wrote that song. I wasn’t thinking about anyone’s cultural aspirations. I was being a bit silly. I don’t know. I can understand [the response] now, and it’s probably not my place to even comment on it. It’s just one of those kind of uncomfortable grey areas.”

Is she a feminist?

“Absolutely. Wholeheartedly. I think women who say, ‘No, I’m not a feminist — I love men,’ I think that is just… You don’t know what it means. You think it means that, ‘I don’t shave under my arms, I burn my bras. F— men!’ How could you be so uneducated, and so unwilling to learn about something which is so important to you?”

On being outspoken:

“You’re never going to appeal to everyone. You might as well have some sort of belief system.”

I love her. She’s calling people gross, she’s standing up for her creativity and she’s admitting she’s a feminist and she understands that doesn’t mean you hate men. Thank you Universe for Lorde!

Robin Thicke Doesn’t Know Where The Line For Rape Is…It’s Too Blurry

I recently ranted about “The Whisper Song” by the Ying-Yang Twins and now it’s time for another “I hate this song” rant. Robin Thicke, who is Alan Thicke’s son, has the most rapey song of 2013 (so far). Let’s look at the lyrics!

First Verse:
If you can’t hear what I’m trying to say
If you can’t read from the same page
Maybe I’m going deaf,
Maybe I’m going blind
Maybe I’m out of my mind
[Pharell:] Everybody get up

Okay…okay…I’m with you so far….

[Pre-chorus: Robin Thicke]
OK now he was close, tried to domesticate you
But you’re an animal, baby, it’s in your nature
Just let me liberate you

Easy there big cat…you’re going to liberate me?

Hey, hey, hey
You don’t need no papers
Hey, hey, hey
That man is not your maker

Papers? Papers like I’m a dog? Like I’m a bitch? Your bitch?

[Chorus: Robin Thicke]
And that’s why I’m gon’ take a good girl
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it

I’m sorry…what?

You’re a good girl
Can’t let it get past me

Wait, let what get past you?

You’re far from plastic
Talk about getting blasted
I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you’re a good girl

Blurred lines? What blurred lines? You know I want it? WHAT IS SO BLURRY MR. THICKE?

The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me
[Pharell:] Everybody get up

Oh, I see….you know I want to f*ck and therefore…we’re going to…because you know this?

[Verse 2: Robin Thicke]
What do they make dreams for
When you got them jeans on
What do we need steam for
You the hottest bitch in this place
I feel so lucky
Hey, hey, hey
You wanna hug me
Hey, hey, hey
What rhymes with hug me?
Hey, hey, hey

So, my jeans are asking for it?

Okay, I’m gonna stop here because this is rapey. You are discussing rape. “I know you want it” “blurred lines” “them jeans on” shut up. But Thicke doesn’t stop here. The video for “Blurred Lines” features men in full suits and women naked dancing around them. Yup. Naked. Then Robin Thicke decides to blow smoke in some pretty blonde’s face…cause why not?

All I can say is—F*CK YOU Robin Thicke. Who do you think you are? First of all, you stole this beat and sound and little “whoo” noise from Michael Jackson and I hate you for that. Second, if you didn’t’ have a famous dad and money you couldn’t get the time of day from those girls. Go away Robin, go far far away.

Kanye is the Worst

I really don’t like Kanye west. I used to, his music is alright, but West as a person sucks. What a piece of junk—what’s worse is he thinks he’s a bar of gold. Vulture put together some amazing quotes from a recent interview of West’s. Enjoy:

  • “I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.”

 

  • “I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it’s like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.”

 

  • “I am so credible and so influential and so relevant that I will change things.”

 

  • “The longer your ‘gevity is, the more confidence you build. The idea of Kanye and vanity are like, synonymous.”

 

  • “It’s only led me to complete awesomeness at all times. It’s only led me to awesome truth and awesomeness. Beauty, truth, awesomeness. That’s all it is.”

 

  • “I was on the junior team when I was a freshman, that’s how good I was. But I wasn’t on my eighth-grade team, because some coach — some Grammy, some reviewer, some fashion person, some blah blah blah — they’re all the same as that coach.”

 

  • “You know, if Michael Jordan can scream at the refs, me as Kanye West, as the Michael Jordan of music, can go and say, ‘This is wrong.’”

 

  • “I am in the lineage of Gil Scott-Heron, great activist-type artists. But I’m also in the lineage of a Miles Davis — you know, that liked nice things also.”

 

  • “I was wearing like, a Juicy Couture men’s polo shirt. We weren’t there, like, ready for war.”

 

  • “I looked at Justin, and I was like: ‘Do you want me to go onstage for you?’”

 

  • “I don’t know if this is statistically right, but I’m assuming I have the most Grammys of anyone my age, but I haven’t won one against a white person.”

 

  • “I’m the type of rock star that likes to have a girlfriend, you know?”

 

  • “Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”

 

  • “This one Corbusier lamp was like, my greatest inspiration … I’m a minimalist in a rapper’s body.”

 

  • “Like, I want the world to be better! All I want is positive! All I want is dopeness! Why would you want to control that?”

 

  • “I would go up the escalator [at Virgin music stores] and say to myself, ‘I’m soaking in these last moments of anonymity.’ I knew I was going to make it this far.”

 

So remember when you pick up the latest Kanye West album you are reaffirming what he thinks of himself. Do us all a favor and stream or illegally download it. Don’t give him anymore ammo.

Johnny Rotten Is…Well….Rotten

Everyone knows the Sex Pistols, led by Johnny Rotten and made famous by Sid Vicious. They sound like charming boys, right? Songs like “God Save the Queen/She Ain’t No Human Being”, “am an anti-Christ/ I am an anarchist/ Don’t know what I want/ But I know how to get it/I wanna destroy the passerby/ ‘Cos I wanna be anarchy. That’s actually a really good song. I enjoy the Sex Pistols, I enjoyed Gary Oldman as Sid Vicious. I do not enjoy Johnny Rotten aka John Lydon shooting his sexist mouth off on the news.

Lydon was on Australian TV, The Project, and when female host Carrie Bickmore attempted to ask him a question he told her to “shut up” and “When a man is talking, do not interrupt,” Lydon said. “You sound like one of them dreadful loud birds I don’t like.” Click here to watch.

I’m sure the beautiful, successful TV anchor was crushed than an over-weight former drug addict rock star found her “dreadful” and didn’t like her. Man, I be all her hopes were crushed. This is the problem. He thinks he has the right to treat someone like this because his ego has been so inflated by his past fame. No one has bothered to sit him down and explain that he is irrelevant and being polite would get him farther than being a douchebag.

But what can you expect from a man that chooses to call himself “Johnny Rotten”. Not much…and that’s exactly what we got.
