Find Me On:
Sad and rather disgusting turn of events. Even Stereogum is playing Switzerland based on this blurb. The music business and media will protect her and the dollars that trickle down.
Rihanna and all the money and the industry that promotes her and sustains itself knows fully well that a lot of young girls listen to her music and many look up to her. Unapologetic isn’t the right title. It should be I Have No Shame. So the domestic abuse victim has gone back to her abuser and is now selling it back to her audience as well.
“Your love is perfection, please point me in the right direction
I’mma give you all my affection
Every touch becomes infectious
Let’s make out in this Lexus
There’s no other love just like this
A life with you I want, then can we become love’s persona?”
-no you probably can’t, because three years ago, one of you beat the other one up so savagely he left her with major contusions either side of her face, a bloody nose, a split lip and bite marks on her arms and fingers, an incident she told police was symptomatic of an “ongoing and escalating abusive relationship”.
Kids eat up cool. They crave it. Substance tends to fall to the wayside. It’s been that way, accelerated now by the internets. Hipsters are not immune. Though they like to pretend they are.
Hmmm, can we apply this wherever we like?
The baby boomers ate the world and then their children came to finish the rest off.
Consume baby, consume.
Speaking of misguided coolness.
Hmm, can’t tell if you’re being sarcastic. The last part of your statement (which is true) tends to undo the first.
Hype builds easily on the internet and hipsters are not immune to herd mentality.
The book is written well? Maybe? Is it it original in any way? Absolutely not.
