Hi there sweetie. Your song Royals was really, really good!
I definitely enjoyed hearing it and I know a bunch of other people did, too.
Now, we need to have a little talk about becoming an overnight celebrity, okay? You’re a big, grown-up girl so I know you can handle it.
There’s no easy way to say this sweetie, but you’re what’s called a one-hit wonder. Have you ever heard of Lou Bega? No? Well, that’s okay. I would have been surprised if you had
You see, Lou Bega was a performer, much like you! He was relatively minor music act for a long time until he released a catchy song called Mambo No. 5 and overnight he became a household name.
Doesn’t this sound familiar? I’ll bet it does! Hint: Replace Lou Bega with Lorde and Mambo No. 5 with Royals and you can see what I’m talking about. Now, back to my point. Mr. Bega is pretty much irrelevant in the music world now.
Can you see my point here? You’re going to fade to irrelevance too, I know this hurts, but it’s okay. The best thing you can do right now is to enjoy the last 4 minutes of your 15 and maybe try to make a new song?
Your little tantrum involving Taylor Swift was really disappointing. The looming return to irrelevance is scary, but this isn’t the way to stay in the limelight.
What you’re doing is called “being a feminist”. A feminist is a woman, or a pathetic excuse of a man, who sees a mountaintop and complains about there being one. A feminist tries to drag everyone down to her level rather than rising up because competition is hard.
As an adult, we both know you are better than this. Picking a fight with someone who is prettier than you is not the way to keep your relevance.
It’s time to put on your big girl pants and accept that Taylor is still mainstream because she has a more broad appeal. Instead of whining about her looking better, you should focus your energy on another song. Maybe you can get up to 20 minutes of fame, pumpkin!
I am an equal!
I deserve special treatment!
Because of….. reasons…..
Oh, you have opened the floodgates of my oppressive behavior. It appears my writing has caused you to internalize both racism and misogyny. And since you’re a double POC, that means I get a bonus multiplier!
Looks like SOMEONE is now up to 7 atto-hitlers of oppression.
I find it interesting that the bulk of my fan mail is from women.
Welcome to the Patriarchy.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
You are not being rude as much as you are disgustingly ignorant. Only a feminist would tell you that this particular wave is indeed about equality instead of it being a women’s privilege movement. The shut down of a men’s issues seminar in Toronto, the promotion of bigots such as Dworkin, the blatant sexploitation of one Anita Sarkeesian, the encouragement of abuse towards male partners on Jezebel, and the tumblr feminist brigade are all prime examples of what feminism is today and how it is far removed from the once-noble equality driven roots it comes from.
As far as Fat Acceptance bloggers go, you are again, QUITE wrong. Genetics? How many times has that line been used? Do you mean the genetics that cause a crappy thyroid and to accompanying FIVE pounds [2.3 kilos for metric folks out there]? Or maybe you’re referring to the genes that cause someone to have no willpower? Or perhaps the “inherited” obesity from fat parents raising a child in their own body-ruining environments? Fat Acceptance is little more than a puppet arm of the women’s privilege movement that sees fat men only as pawns in their game and as disgusting objects deserving of reproach for daring to voice opinions in their space because of the oppression olympics or “intersectionality” as they like to call it.
Seriously, only TITP could make a post this absolutely convoluted.
A blog that is all about the supposed privileges of the non obese has somehow made yet ANOTHER thing all about their fat selves.
Be it someone else’s weight loss, practical seating concerns, of even market saturation of a clothing retailer, TITP’s appetite for self absorption only continues to grow.
This post however, really ups the ante and successfully links thin shaming to thin privilege. Even problems that exclusively thin people face are now about fat people.
It’s my privilege.
Glad your “internalized misogyny” has lead you to appreciate my work.
