I don’t really see why -everything- is being called a ‘revolution’ now, but this is important nonetheless.
I think it’s more accurate to say that people are beginning to call for revolution— until a government or ideological shift actually occurs there hasn’t been a revolution (not that I know all the details of what’s happening in Brazil or Turkey).
Whatever it is I hope it gains momentum and spreads worldwide.
An eccentric Japanese pop star sets out to film a surprise first meeting with her estranged American father - a United States senator.
Why hello there, Internet-landia! I’m posting a link to this Kickstarter page for two reasons:
My long-time friend, Clare, is a part of this project, and I would love to see her performance in the final product.
I’ve seen people post about Kickstarters they’re interested in, and the incredible results after they link to them. A lot of money has been donated to this Kickstarter so far, but still not enough to make the requirement set for this project.
If you have the opportunity, please consider donating to this Kickstarter! I think that Hapa has the potential to be a great short film, but that potential can only be realized if they get enough funding!
Well ok Kesha, maybe it’s because you’re an auto tuned peice of shit who shouldn’t be famous, you have no Buisness being in the music industry, it’s not even your music you fuck, someone else wrote it for you to record and them to auto tune yourself. And it’s not at all good . It’s not positive either. So complain some more.
I don’t know if you know this, tumblr user koolkidseatgreens, but Ke$ha is a certified genius. She has an IQ over 140 and an SAT score of 1500. When she was younger she would go to the library and do research for fun. Ke$ha is a both feminist and an advocate for equal marriage/rights for people of any sexuality, being a queer woman herself.
Ke$ha is a smart, professional woman, and just because she sings songs about wanting to let loose and have fun every once in a while doesn’t make her a piece of shit.
Ke$ha’s songs are meant to point out the sexism in our media. She treats men the same way many men in the music industry treat women, and she is hated on for it. Relentlessly. She sings on multiple occasions about taking charge in a sexual relationship, of how she only uses men for their body parts. She sexualizes men to make them uncomfortable. She sexualizes men for a reaction, so that people can both see why women are so uncomfortable with their sexualization and also to point out the inequality between the sexes both in the media and in the world at large.
She is judged so harshly for singing about things that make many men famous.
If you listen to Ke$ha’s deconstructed album you will see that she actually has some talent, which may be hard to hear because she does in fact use a fair amount of autotune. This is because of her genre and because of the kind of music she chooses to create as an artist. Ke$ha may not write her songs, but this doesn’t meant she isn’t a good artist or a good person. This doesn’t mean she deserves your harsh words. Some singers are good at writing, but that’s hardly a requirement. Last time I checked whether or not you can sing has nothing to do with whether or not you’re a poet.
You should not be calling anyone a piece of shit, my friend, especially someone you’ve never sat down and had a conversation (or even taken the time to wonder about her feelings!), but if anyone deserves that kind of language it’s not Ke$ha.
You may think that by shaming women for expressing their sexuality and having fun every once in a while, that you are somehow abolishing sexism. That in weeding out the less ‘deserving’ women you are gaining our sex more respect. This is not the case, and the fact that you and many others feel such a strong need to shame this woman who has done nothing wrong, especially not to you, shows that we still have a very far away to go.
this is about 25% me wanting a study break and 75% me being irritated, but i just:
1. Well ok Kesha, maybe it’s because you’re an auto tuned peice of shit who shouldn’t be famous
2. …you have no Buisness being in the music industry, it’s not even your music you fuck, someone else wrote it for you to record and them to auto tune yourself.
you know who else didn’t write a lot of their own music, or the music that got them famous? elvis presley. the monkees. three dog night. aretha fucking franklin, and i swear to god if you try to tell me that aretha franklin isn’t a real musician or doesn’t deserve to be famous then i will kick you in the kidneys so hard they’ll come out your mouth.
songwriting is, in and of itself, an art, and a skill, and a talent. singing is an art, and a skill, and a talent. singing a song written by someone else doesn’t mean you haven’t any musical talent of your own, it just means someone else wrote it. some of the most acclaimed songs in history are covers :whitney houston’s version of i will always love you is the one most often referenced, but she didn’t write it; all along the watchtower is a jimi hendrix fan’s staple, but he didn’t write it; hell, leonard cohen’s hallelujah is probably the most covered song in any universe ever and most people only know the jeff buckley or rufus wainwright versions. covers, songs written by person a for person b to perform… they’re all legitimate songs only insofar as they are sung. the only thing that stops a song or a piece of music from being legit or real is if they’re never heard.
additionally, as someone above said: yes, she uses a lot of autotune. so did fun. in their last album, and heyo, they got a grammy nod. plenty of r&b artists use autotune. same with pop artists. it’s a current musical trend. trends come and go, and people who can do so will master and ride the trend. she’s done a damn solid job of doing that, but it doesn’t preclude her from having talent.
3. maybe try not being a dick about people you’ve no actual reason to hate. i could be wrong and maybe you know ke$ha in person and she ran over your dog or punched you in the nads or something, and if that’s why you hate her, go for it. but all you’re doing right now is making yourself look like an undeservedly arrogant dickcheese who apparently has no grasp of punctuation or capitalization.
