first and foremost,
i love paramore.
i own their first album and it still gets spins.
i love hayley william’s voice as well.
well she was recently vocal about miley cyrus ratchet performance on the vmas and all i can say is:
SOMEONE GETS IT!…
she spoke on 98.7 amp radio in detriot to let her voice be heard…
listen from 2:50:
“It seems like more people are focusing on the trashiness or the dancing, the clothes. But I, actually, am uncomfortable with the racial aspect of it. I feel like she’s sort of taking a culture that isn’t really hers and sort of using it as an accessory, and that actually bothers me more…. I feel like maybe someone needs to go to her and sort of explain the race issue.”
“I’m not going to be the artist that goes around throwing accusations that other artists are racist. I’m not gonna go there. I do think it’s a little insensitive, and it definitely seems as though there were black women onstage with her that…kinda felt like accessories more than anything else. I felt uncomfortable about that. I think Miley’s a 20-year-old girl who’s going to experience, or try to experience, new things for the first time, and that does include partying and wearing certain things that people aren’t going to feel comfortable with, and that, to me, is the lesser of any of the evils. That part doesn’t make me as uncomfortable.“
i love it when white people get it.
now if only we could get the rappers and blacks to get it as well.
then again she looks like a potential “song seller” and “new fan base” for them.
i can see the appeal.
lowkey: i wonder what p!nk thinks about it?
