Santigold: LMFAO Makes Me Cry

Speaking with Pitchfork on Friday, Santigold very colorfully goes into detail about recording her new record as well as her thoughts on the pop landscape. But, you know, since this is Where’s The Beef?, we’re totally gonna pick out the part where she talked shit. Behold:

I’m disappointed with the state of music right now, but it’s not really about anybody specific. I think there’s a lack of true art, and the fanfare is valued over actual substance. It’s like you don’t have to make good music to be fucking huge. Now, I’ll say that, and all the little kids will be like, “Fuck you. I hope you die.” [laughs] Don’t let them think you dissed Lady Gaga!

I watched a music awards show last year and started crying afterwards. I just felt really sad that people go along with stupid wack shit. I’m sorry, but LMFAO performed at the Super Bowl? Aren’t they a joke band? That type of shit makes me cry. I’m like, “Really?”

Joke band, Santi?! You’re talking about direct descendents of Motown royalty and one of the best party rock groups ever to feature an uncle and his nephew! Does that mean nothing to you?

But, seriously. Santigold’s new album, Master of My Make Believe, is out 5/1 via Downtown/Atlantic.

  1. We don’t need all this beef in music today. C’mon, everybody just have a good time!

    • Common and Drake should hold a ceasefire for all music. This would be a good thing for like, a second intermission of an NHL game.

  3. Right after I posted this, I got the LMFAO press release for their “Sorry For Party Rocking” world tour. I have a suspicion that they’re not sorry at all.

  4. Santi…who? LOL

    But seriously, Santi…what?

  5. I start crying whenever I hear stereo heart on the radio. What a lovely piece of art.

  6. Everyday I’m shit talkin’…bumbumbumbum bowbumbum

  7. I don’t really know anything about Santigold tbh, but LMFAO can suck it! They are the worst.

  10. Does being a joke automatically make it bad?

  11. I don’t get it Santi, what is it about two grown men decked out in robust afros and garish leopard prints making shitty radio anthems that seems like a joke to you?

  12. It still begs the question – who actually cares? Meshuggah are on tour this spring!

  13. It’s Halftime in America. Get ready to barf.

  15. LMFAO just decided they wanted to get paid instead of being a bloghouse joke band for another couple of years… considering their alternatives, it was the smartest choice. santigold is just mad. she isn’t exactly rising to the top of the music world so she’s just crying in public.

  16. I can’t blame her, LMFAO are the absolute shits. Can’t stand them and this whole stupid “Sorry for party rocking” thing. That’s not even a thing! It’s just something you’ve made up!! You’re just taking two words that aren’t necessarily mutualyy exclusive and putting them together for no reason!!!

    What, do you eat everyone’s food in catering then go “sorry for feast munching”, or dance your ass off at a gig and go “sorry for rave moshing”.

    Also I heard one of them actually speak, and he literally sounded like S.Mouse from Angry Boys.
