Miguel is NOT for teeny boppers. The guy has been on songs with Janelle Monae, his songs have some slick production, and live the dude always changes up his music in crazy ways (he made Adorn a rock song on SNL).
And I’d say they’re demographics are pretty similar. Ware makes forward thinking R&B, which Miguel also does.
In context? Dude needs to chill…
Even though I love The War on Drugs, I have to admit I laughed at that quote out of context
I’m not really trying to get pity here, I’m just trying to put things into perspective. The fact people should have to confirm their disability (essentially whether you’re saying “Why aren’t you standing” or “You can only not dance if you’re handicapped”) is really what bothers me about all of this. I’m sure neither the country dude (or even Kanye) meant any malice, they just showed a common lack of regard for people who can’t stand up or “fully turn up” or whatever the hell. Multiple media outlets claiming that this is being blown out of proportion kind of pisses me off, because it’s the PRINCIPLE of what he said and did, not the tone, that’s the problem in the first place. Even if he was joking, he still claimed that people needed a handicap parking pass if they wanted to sit (which…what the hell…). He had a crowd of people (even if only briefly) boo some poor guy in a wheelchair. Even if other commenter claim he had a good time after the fact, I’m guessing it would have been horrible in the moment. Handicapped people should never be put into a position (unless required by law or medical necessity) where they need to prove (or even explain) their disability. And I’m a big Kanye fan too, I’m just disappointed in both the action and (in particular) the reaction to said action.
1) I find it hilarious that christian watchdogs even bother watching a show where a masturbating bear is a recurring character
2) That’s one of the most “You Tell ‘Em!” responses I’ve ever read. And it was wonderful.
Know more. They’re hilarious, they’re great rappers, El-P is an incredible producer, and they seem like pretty cool dudes.
If you want more Run the Jewels hijinks, look up their Over/Under video from Pitchfork.
I very much prefer handicapped, but I’m not going to speak for every disabled person in saying that.
As someone who is actually disabled with a type of MS, this shit sucks. It’s already bad enough that we have to be relegated to platforms and side areas that have mediocre viewing angles. What pisses me off about this is how we get singled out for not standing. This has actually happened to me before! When I was younger, my family forced all of use to sit in the front at some horrible country show. The opening act was trying to amp up the crowd, and then pointed at me and yelled “Why aren’t you standing!?”. I transferred from my chair into regular seat, and I couldn’t really explain that to the guy in a quick second, so I felt like shit for the rest of the night. I still (unreasonably) hold a beef against country music because this dick did that to me. And I was a kid when this happened, so it was particularly awful.
All I’m saying is this: if someone isn’t standing, who cares. Leave people alone. Is it really worth traumatizing someone because they’re “bringing the energy down”? No. Just leave people alone and perform a good concert.
I agree. It’s pretty obvious that the success of Beyoncé’s inspired this stunt. Especially since only an artist that’s massively popular could ever create a stir by doing this sort of thing. U2 are kind of massively popular.
That counting off stuff kind of ruins the guitar breakdown. Also, this song really makes me miss Cuomo’s rawer vocals. Nowadays they’re just so over produced…
