I wish I still cared about the Oscars, ‘cause this does seem like the most interesting, unpredictable lead acting race in many years.April 1, 2021 at 12:55 pm #1204169546
And what exactly was the “point” of your post? Some random ass mention of “Liberals” saying “faghot”, as if that has anything to do with anything? And claiming he doesn’t have the right to criticize a religion that he grew up in, as if tons of people haven’t done that for decades. As if he doesn’t have the right to make a song about his traumas and oppression dealing with religion? Acting as if any of this is harmful to Christians, which once again, dominates the States.
Your post was just a corny reach to be shady. While your recent post claiming the song has no merit and isn’t good enough to get a ROTY nod is also a reflection of simply being a hater, since many weaker songs have been nominated in recent years.April 1, 2021 at 10:53 am #1204169340
Very true, but it’s worth noting that same way a true liberal should not use the fa***t term if he isn’t gay, he should also desist from bastardizing religious concepts he doesn’t believe in. Liberal mentality revolves around mutual respect. Both Nas and his conservative critics are reckless tbh.
What a silly ass perspective. The whole point of the video is not about respecting anyone. It’s about attacking a concept that he felt was used to harm and oppress him. Just like many who grow up in the Muslim religion or grow up Mormon or whatever make “art” that is critical of those things. In the US, Christianity is dominant. So, this idea of him “offending” Christians is just dumb. But they’re also helping to give him exactly what he wants, another number 1.
I do feel some are pushing him because they want to see someone like him have success in the mainstream. Not only a black male “queer” but unabashedly and aggressively so. I can’t hate on it since there’s worse and more basic artists who have had years long success.March 30, 2021 at 11:43 am #1204166267
Her nods for Junebug and The Master are the only ones I truly loved. And she wasn’t close to my personal lists when it comes to Vice and American Hustle. But she was also snubbed for very deserving work in Arrival and Enchanted. In my personal top 3 with both of those. So, I guess it balances itself.March 30, 2021 at 11:26 am #1204166237
Nobody asked you to post some old Twitter thread with old ass social media posts. You posted the shit. Now, you mad no one cares.
That junk is nothing we don’t see every day from stan Twitter. And at least he was a teenager at the time as opposed to some of these very grown ass people who indulge that type of nonsense. If you want to get pissy about it, cool. But don’t try to force others to care. “Canceling” doesn’t even work anyways for the most part. So, don’t waste the attempts on some BS.March 30, 2021 at 10:09 am #1204165994
Indeed the “proof” isn’t there when it comes to the Lil Kim account. While most of the other stuff has been pretty widely known and widely publicized almost as soon as he became famous. He was a bitchy teenage stan queen 4-5 years ago. That’s hardly something that will shock most or something most would hold against him, unless you already felt some type of way towards him.March 30, 2021 at 9:37 am #1204165910
He was clearly going for ruffling feathers and controversy, and he got it. Some of the hyperbolic reaction is disturbing but also fairly predictable.March 29, 2021 at 8:25 am #1204163666
I only watched because some are saying the video rips off “Cellophane”. I guess I can see that. But its tone and visuals are quite a bit different. The song is catchy enough to be another hit, though I don’t see it sustaining. I do think completely leaning into campy and pointed “gayness” and “queerness” is the proper route for him to remain relevance. (Besides, once he did that barbershop interview, it was apparent he was not gonna be embraced and uplifted by “straight guys”).March 20, 2021 at 5:53 pm #1204147688
This is the first Lana album that I’ve thoroughly liked. I appreciated NFR more than I was engaged by it. I don’t think I’ll ever be a “fan”. But she has grown a lot.March 18, 2021 at 8:34 pm #1204144393
Jamie and, yes, After Hours and a few more albums could have as well been stiff competition. Certainly more than what she had. A lot of shit would have been more formidable competition.
But none of that has to do with silly theories and bytching about her not winning more when she is making history, breaking/tying records and won the biggest award of the night.
Anyways, I’m hoping we get more out of this Evermore “era”. It seems as if she might just chill. Swift is a huge pop star at the end of the day and needs to embrace that. This Folklore/Evermore era has been pretty disappointing outside of the music.March 18, 2021 at 8:29 pm #1204144365
I don’t know if Lemon’s post is about me, but I have literally posted one other thing about Swift for the past some odd months. So, there’s no way I could be posting anything about Swift in four threads or some nonsense.
I did post in another thread that I absolutely believe Swift would not have won AOTY if not for the panel blocking a few albums and letting in a few that was barely any type of competition. But that’s neither here nor there. If you want to see that as trying to “invalidate” a win then go ahead.
Anyways, let me allow y’all to live. I just don’t understand bytching and conspiracies when y’all should be celebrating.March 18, 2021 at 8:17 pm #1204144339
I just randomly clicked on this thread and was actually wanting to see the Swifties celebrate. Yet, the last couple of pages, I mostly see people complaining and then I read some silly theory about why she didn’t win more. (Something that one person brought up and a couple posters semi agreed with or thought was possible). I had to call out the silliness, privilege and lack of gratitude of it all. I’m entirely indifferent to whether Swift wins a damn award or not, and she was favorite of the nominee in a couple of categories, including AOTY.
Some Swifties just bask in being hated and petty and overly defensive. It’s really corny and tired at this point. But once again, this my fault. I briefly forgot how a lot of stanning works.March 18, 2021 at 8:03 pm #1204144328
even in a stacked line up taylor could have taken AOTY… as long as there was no country album she had a shot
That’s not really the point. The panel assisted a much easier AOTY victory for her, her one victory of the night. Fans should be content with that win, which is arguably the biggest award of the night and that was pretty much handed to her on a plater. But it’s not enough. So, they randomly concoct a theory that a panel was designed to shut her out, which doesn’t make any sense at all based on the winners. This type of stuff makes some of her fans look petulant for absolutely no reason.
Anyways, let me remind myself to stay my ass out of this thread.March 18, 2021 at 3:27 pm #1204143917
I’m just teasing Thot for being an out-of-place loon coming to this thread to try and rile us up.
I knew what you were doing. But I wasn’t trying to rile up. I was just taken aback by the theory that a “secret committee” stopped Swift from winning more Grammys this year when the panel is probably the biggest reason she able to win anything this year. It just makes a percentage of Swifties come off even more whiny and privileged than some already do. But I should know what to expect when it comes to stan-dom.
“Coney Island” is the best song on Evermore, btw. Argue with the wall.March 18, 2021 at 12:56 pm #1204143652
I honestly wouldn’t want my favs winning like that. Music is just too subjective and varied, and there’s too many albums every year for one artist to win four AOTY Grammys in fifteen years. It wouldn’t sit right with me. But y’all do you. Stay privileged.
