I love when we reframe issues to illustrate them as they are- the perpetrator’s problem.
The day I dropped out of college, I remember lying on my bed. My mother came into my room, and she had been crying. She stared at me for a long time and then she said, ‘You only have one shot at life, Georgia. This is no dress rehearsal,’ and I said, ‘You know what, Mom? Maybe I don’t even want to be in the play.
sometimes i think i’m arrogant but then i remember that julius caesar was kidnapped by sicilian pirates and when they demanded a ransom of 620kgs of silver he got mad because he thought he was worth more than that and made them raise it to 1550kg
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.
No, fuck this. If she is as intelligent as you say she is then why does she choose to continue to bastardize music?
Everything she does is completely manufactured. She has little to no artistic say in the music she makes or performs.
She has so little artistic integrity that she actually feels the need to cry about the way she is treated even when she CHOOSES to continue her bull shit facade.
This person embodies everything that is wrong with mainstream music today.
it really doesn’t have to do with that…. it’s about the fact that people hate her because she sings about having casual sex and partying and it’s a slut shaming mess. I don’t give a shit what you think about the quality of her music or who produces it or what the fuck ever. Honestly I don’t even listen to her stuff for the most part.
The point is she is a human person with feelings and doesn’t deserve to be degrading and shamed about her life and personal choices when she doesn’t actually do anything malicious or mean, she just makes music that you don’t enjoy. Just don’t fucking listen if you don’t enjoy it, it’s not that hard.
Just because someone does something you don’t enjoy doesn’t mean they deserve bad things to happen to them.
She chooses to do it because she CAN. And she WANTS to. She makes auto-tuned pop music half just to make fun of how our society eats that shit UP. The other half is just having fun.
If you don’t like it, don’t listen to it. I don’t particularly care for her music, but I will DAMN sure respect her for her intelligence and fucking courage to make music SHE likes making, regardless of who likes it or not.
