All of those projects she wants to do make you realize what labels/editors/gatekeepers are for. Not every idea and impulse an artist has is gold. Sometimes you need quality control in the form of a backer to say "What, an album with your Dad? No, we're not going to pay for that, are you crazy?"

In the context of attacking Drake in an Instagram post, I think that's a fair application of our norms?

I will admit to using that to see if I was close to making it into that week's Shut Up Dude.

Music journalism is for listeners, not the artists. And listeners will be reading between the lines, too. Music journalism has developed enough where we all understand these are not consumer reviews; we read them because they're interpretations. Trust that your listeners are smart enough to make their own decision and like what they like, especially in an era where trying something is essentially free.

Not sure! I think maybe because mine is through Gravatar it's not on Stereogum's servers so it's not weird and missing

I didn't get into The Only Place but the Fade Away EP has, i think, their best songs. Because of that I'm giving this album a shot.

February 9, 2015 on Kendrick Lamar – “The Blacker The Berry”
I guess we all have this idea that Jack White would be less fussy? I can understand wanting champagne flutes and wine glasses; you're a big star, you like the finer things, you'd like to enjoy them before and after a show. It's the little things like "Must be real glass" and "no fluorescent lighting" and "handmade guacamole with this recipe" that seems a little weird/pedantic/fussy.

Korn is way more redeemable than Limp Bizkit, I don't think liking Korn even gets you any side eyes anymore.
