Problematic infantilization aside, you're right that Grande is "barely a teenager." In fact, she's not a teenager at all! She's 21.

PSY's post-viral comedown is going to hit hard? I doubt anything is different for him day-to-day. He's been a star in Korea for over a decade.

The problem is that this happens so incredibly frequently with the portrayal of trans* people in media. Actual trans* actors are passed on in favor of cis actors playing out trans* stories. This means that trans* people aren't active participants in their media narratives.

What a weird bizarro universe I have dropped into where Fireworks is being covered by Stereogum and Pitchfork.

If you've seen the interview you know that it sounds fine. And if you know anything at all about DEP you know that they are way too famous to be playing the local bar.

The guitarist of Dillinger Escape Plan has a guitar with wireless built in so it doesn't plug into the jack on the outside. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_YWRFdBFso#t=320

Can you imagine if he DIDN'T make a public apology (for being given an award, no less)? Everyone would want his head on a stake. And they still do. Nothing he can do will please hip hop purists, so he did the thing that would at least make him seem like kinda a nice guy.

This point was way overstated when PATD was first getting started. For instance, Pretty Odd doesn't sound like FOB in the slightest. However, this song could easily be a Save Rock and Roll b-side.

Someone wants to look like they have their finger on the pulse of emo all of a sudden. <3 Evan though.

Stereogum posting about Dr. Dog and Portugal The Man? Does that mean I don't have to pretend I'm too cool to like them anymore?

PS Eliot members can do no wrong. Unsurprising that this album is brilliant.

Please don't accuse them of doing too much actual music journalism, lest we end up with more articles telling us which album turned 10 today.

All you have to do is substitute "straight" for "gay" in his comments to realize how patronizing his remarks are. You would never imply that people who experience opposite-sex attraction might just be confused about it.
