Sky Ferreira on The Noite

In her years within the major-label teenpop system, Sky Ferreira probably had to face all sorts of indignities, but I’m not sure anything in her past can compare to her recent appearance on the Brazilian talk show The Noite. The opening question, which host Danilo Gentili asked through a translator, was whether people like her because of her music or “because of the tits.” Both host and translator basically slavered all over her throughout the interview, and she gamely squirmed her way through it. She did, however, get a chance to sing “You’re Not The One” after all that, and you can watch both the interview and the performance below.

Ferreira’s album Night Time, My Time is out now on Capitol, and it is so good. That translator needs to fall back.

    • So it’s okay to perpetuate stereotypes and old values of sexism since it’s all humor :D
      I bet lots of people weren’t laughing. And no, don’t say “if you don’t like, don’t watch” cuz this is just playing dead. As long as people are alive and breathing, people should understand that this is WRONG.

      • I didn’t say they are right to do that. I just said that they do this to every people they interview. No, they won’t change the type of the show just because she’s american. I don’t watch the show, I don’t find it funny at all. Again, she shouldn’t have gone to the show without knowing what it was about. I have no idea why they invited her, but if you’re going someplace, I assume you should at least try to read the description or watch another interview before going there. I feel sorry for her, I can see that it was really uncomfortable. I wish she wouldn’t have gone there. But at the same type, I wouldn’t expect them to change the type of show just because she’s american.

        Just a PS: she won’t die because of that, and I am pretty sure a lot of people that did not know her now are going to buy her disc because of the show.

I don’t watch the show, I don’t find it funny at all, most people don’t like it and think that Gentili is just retarded. Again, she shouldn’t have gone to the show without knowing what it was about.

    • false alarm guys! It’s a humor show! PHEW!

  4. I mean, seriously, that is perhaps the worst TV show she could possibily go to. Not all Brazilian shows are as stupid and unhumorous as that one, don’t fall into that trap.

  5. Somebody’s agent and/or manager is in trouble.

  6. I feel so bad for her. I’m brazilian and I can assure you this tv show is the worst. it is supposed to be fun, but instead it’s just a guy [that most brazilians hate, I should say] making stupid comments about everyone. not all brazilian tv shows are like that and the ones involved in this one should’ve known better!

  7. I’m a brazilian woman and I can say, from my own experience, this is not an exception for our tv – as people are trying to say here. Our open TV shows (with few exceptions) do reproduce gender stereotypes and, therefore, motivates violence against women. Brazil is still majorly sexist. We love to think we are not, but that’s a huge and violent lie.
