Just because Scandal ended, doesn’t mean I’ve stopped calling my dinner of a bowl of popcorn and glass of red wine “The Olivia Pope”

Definitely envious of your interview opportunities from Joan Baez to Chan Marshal & everyone in between -you’re great at what you do though- I’m going to see Cat Power & Willis Earl Beal hopefully they do some duets the last time I saw them together was incredible

Songwriters who aren’t cishet white men are not fucking commodities. What we’re seeing right now in indie rock is a very real and necessary shift, and I hope it’s only the beginning.

to the music writer who just referred to women musicians as “commodities” to me, right to my face, I’d like to correct you and point out that perhaps we’re actually just superior songwriters with more interesting viewpoints and the world is just now catching up

I have so much I want to rage tweet but I’m just going to log off because I’m the most irrelevant music writer anyway ✌🏼

I’m so sick of people acting like this shit doesn’t matter or shouldn’t matter. It does. It always has. It influences and shapes people more than it’s given credit for. (seriously look around) because everyone wants to think they’re “above pop culture” -BUT NONE OF YA’LL ARE!

Then when [artist] has a public breakdown/gets into serious trouble/dies, everyone’s like “Who knew? There were no signs. Such a bummer,” it’s like OH SORRY BRO YOU WERE TOO BUSY TWEETING THAT EVERYTHING IS A PR STUNT ALL THE TIME.

Also when did everyone become so jaded that everything is about a music rollout? Who honestly has that much time to put that many things into motion?

Rolling Loud should’ve been about Cardi HEADLINING, deservedly - and something not a lot of women have done this year, +instead became about this toxic foolishness. It’s extremely selfish and manipulative. No one saw all that shit coming out and thought “Stop this”? Fuck that.
