I’m not a big fan of those who combine hypocrisy and self-righteousness. Ed’s new song should be “It’s Hard Out There For a Forbes.”
we love grizzly bear!! yaaaay!! what a bunch of idiots.
you know why he “doesn’t do that”? because it’s more fun to complain to journalists that you’re a struggling artist than acknowledge that you’re basically the Mitt Romney of indie rock.
you can knock me all I want, but I know what I’m talking about. veckatimest for example is an island owned by his family. Droste’s comments are just about as disingenuous as you can possibly get, he’s playing at “oh I’m a struggling artist, woe is me,” which I find kind of offensive. No one complains about money more than rich people.
uh what?? Ed Droste is a FORBES. His family owns TWO ISLANDS. what a fucking faker. Dude if you’re short on cash and want to raise a family, here’s an idea: SELL ONE OF YOUR ISLANDS. #hedgefundrock
