    I think given the ‘culture’ (if you will) at the time with cancel culture being at its peak and the blm movement dominating the US things definitely did get taken out of context by the media, but I do wish she would stop beating a dead horse by bringing this up again after everything that happened last time

    I get why she does it, but I’m so sick of her constantly defending herself. 
     
    people are NEVER going to understand her/her art, and continuing to comment on these issues FOUR YEARS later is just not the move. I think the people who knew what she meant knew what she meant, and the people who didn’t never will, no matter how many follow up videos/posts/comments she makes.

    one of the CRAZIEST things i've heard reddit "lipsters" say
     
    "one for the money, two for the show" -Million Dollar Man
    "one for the money, two for the show" - champagne problems
     
    it's literally a common expression 
     
    soon they'll be conspiring that Elvis copied her as well

    I love how she buys dresses from the mall and second-hand jackets but also flaunts $400k watches. Relatable queen as I would too if I had the money
  9. kristinaj liked a post in a topic by Blossom in Lana attending/leaving Churchome in Beverly Hills, CA - April 24th, 2024   
    different insight but I started attending churchome with my friends from my church during covid when things went online (I was not a big enough fan of Lana yet to know that she went there... I'm not a weirdo) and they were all lovely, kind, and supportive. I did not get a single weird vibe from anyone there and never heard anything discriminatory, strict, or brainwashy, and I attended for a year. I know it's hard to wrap your head around a megachurch but the  Churchome leadership is very different from Hillsong lol. They are super chill there, though Judah is definitely eccentric. Just wanted to share this anecdote because I know ppl r worried about/ weirded out by Lana going there

    I like those pics but I kinda don’t need them to be for lasso because they really have no personality other than being classic Neil Krug photos so it would be nice if the booklet and shoot was a little more original than those

    I went last night and it was SO special...
    the crowd went INSANE when she came out with the Veil,
    girls were crying and screaming !!!
    and to "My My, Hey Hey" Neil young out of the blue into the black rock and roll is here to stay song.. it was SO iconic... 
    also from a crowd view, the backup singers were FANTASTIC they helped bring so much beauty to her performance 
    Camillo was cringe to me but the crowd seemed pleased, especially those that aren't LDR Stans. 
    The leather men carrying her off during Hope was SO SEXY AND HOT.. and then she came out in the leather "lasso" looking type dress and veil, we were gagged. 
    Her and Jon Batiste were MAGICAL AF. and her going to the stripper pole during Candy Necklace was ICONIC AFFFF the crowd was screaming so hard and it kinda low-key is like "yes she can go back to stripping and singing about how she wants or wanted to be loved without being criticized as feigning fragility or glamor" so as a die hard fan since 2014 it really is impressive how far she has come in confidence 
    As far as the without you lyrics, I didn't notice her leaving the "your love is deadly" out but she was overcome with nerves before, she stood for like a 30 seconds - minute meditating almost on stage 
    anyways, 10/10 might be her best performance ever

    I agree. Weekend one hologram was addressing SNL, weekend 2 hologram was feminism/QFTC

    I love how she just browses YouTube and finds stuff to put in her live shows/sample on her albums etc

    God so much more was happening than on the weekend 1, I teared up once or twice
    The Hunter S. Thompson book, the Hope dance, the spoken interlude between Hope and AW about womanhood, THE VOCALS OVERALL, the My My Hey Hey intro...
    What a moment in her artistry

    Ok in get free she says “out of the black into the blue” like it’s a positive thing. Like she’s becoming happier. But during Coachella she literally goes from blue to black in outfit changes meaning a return to her darker mindset. The intro song (My My, Hey Hey-Neil Diamond) also says “out of the blue into the black” and talks about basically going hard instead of fizzling out. The hologram cage interlude talked about women being mothers or virgins and how those are the only acceptable choices in society. But then goes on to talk about sensuality and creativity and not being caged by just the two choices of virgin or mother. She’s mused a lot about motherhood especially in Ocean Blvd and I think this could all point to her giving up having kids and just focusing on her career, her art. Also the ending where she’s carried out felt like a funeral instead of the usual psych ward vibe, then she’s almost reborn into a new era that is just for her. Of course this could all just me being tired af and unhinged. 
     
    Someone else that’s better an analyzing this stuff chime in! Lol

    The only thing is that sometimes (not often) I was confused as to whether it was her voice or the playback, like the voice was still there but her lips weren't moving. I think she shouldn't use her voice so much for the playback, unless it's just accompanying background elements.

    The fact that little cover was the last straw for her is so fucking funny

  23. kristinaj liked a post in a topic by The Sun Also Rises in What Are You Reading?   
    I just finished Wide Sargasso Sea, a post colonial, post modernism feminist response to Jane Eyre. Loved it personally although I can see why it has mixed reactions. 

    I also recently read my first James Joyce, A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man. There were moments of brilliant prose but overall it dragged too much for me. I'll try more Joyce though. 
     
    Before that, I read The Dispossessed by Ursula K Le Guin, a great exploration of anarchism, capitalism, etc in a science fiction setting.
     
    I Who Have Never Known Men, a dystopian by Jacqueline Harpman, was also excellent. It will probably stay with me for a long time. 
     
    The Crying of Lot 49 was my first time reading Pynchon and I thoroughly enjoyed it. What a trip! I'll re-read it later for sure. It's also such fun seeing how many people are inspired by it, including Radiohead, one of my favourite bands! I am now seeing W.A.S.T.E everywhere. 
     
    Giovanni's Room was also my first James Baldwin, and I fell in love with his minimalist prose. What a great tragic story and so far ahead of its time. I will absolutely be reading more Baldwin. 
     
    I could go on and on but ... 
     
    I'm now reading The Word for World is Forest, a short story by Ursula Le Guin, and will then be moving onto The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea, my first Mishima, which I bought recently.
