May 20, 2015 on Marina Abramović Is Very Pissed At Jay Z
I remember when one of Tidal's selling points was playlists curated from artists. Then Jay-Z put out his first playlist of 12 songs and guess what! He likes all the same artists blogs like. Thanks for the expertise and deep cuts!

The fact that it comes from a (trusted and credible) music writer that works with him, vouching for a history of under-the-radar work, makes it seem less likely that this particular act is a PR stunt. And I know the article you're talking about, it's Cord Jefferson on Gawker from around the time of Watch the Thrones and the point was more that if Jay-Z and Kanye want to be the inspirational figures they claim to be, they have to do more than just exist as rich black men in the public eye. I'm not saying his charities work out well or that he's even particularly good at managing them. But to say that he's solely interested in building up only his own wealth is a cynical reading when it's far more likely he's just incompetent at it.

Just because you don't hear about it doesn't mean he's not involved in other things: http://www.dazeddigital.com/music/article/24779/1/jay-z-beyonce-baltimore-ferguson-protest-money-bail-police

This looks like a bad film and an even worse use of the Jem property but I also feel silly about complaining about "being authentic to the Jem canon" shit is this what it sounds like to other people when I talk about Batman

I think he's going to change the album art too, since it doesn't really fit as well as "So Help Me God." Which is a shame, because I kinda liked the simplicity.

people who feel they are being bullied/disallowed/silenced because they have a taste contrary to critical consensus are lame just have your opinion and stick to it, that feeling of tension and outsiderness is the whole point of going against the grain

"Don't care about what other people think" is great advice for, like, young women finding themselves. It's a total dick move when you're the leader of a global super power, though. It's like applying "take control of your own destiny!" to Vladimir Putin

1. I think they took those illuminati jokes too seriously 2. I'd be okay with this turning-the-tide artists-first talk if they'd explain in detail how the royalties per play are better than Spotify

This is dumb. We all know these are silly devices but if you're goal is to ban narcissistic, lame tools, you have a long way to go, Coachella. If we're banning things just because uncool people use them you can practically put in anything festival bros and flower girls have run into the ground, from Native headdresses to shutter shades.

The sanctity of Glastonbury is so important that he wouldn't ever dare soil it by attending it himself.
