I live in a country that is laughably ignorant towards black people (there are barely any here, although that appears to be changing fast), and I have to field all sorts of comments and questions that I’d never get in America.
Sorry, I was willing to just shrug off the bad humor until he tried to squeeze his religious bullshit in there. I am now in full agreement that he’s the least favorite Chris.
You could be right!
You’re one of a few people to comment something along these lines. I’m surprised that so many people feel this way. I mean, at least once a day I may kick myself for not having remembered to run an errand or something, but it’s quite rare that I regret any major life decisions. Didn’t realize it was so common.
Who said anything about jobs? Mexican and other central American immigrants (illegal or otherwise) are not generally vilified for taking jobs, they are vilified for supposedly being criminals, per Trump’s own comments. Arabs are vilified for supposedly being violent terrorists. In both cases it’s easily proven with…
Hmm. I think your previous reference to inspiring other artists was more valid. Her voice in and of itself can’t be a legacy is few will remember it after she’s long gone. If nothing else we could at least argue that Ariana Grande’s singing style seems to be influenced by Christina, perhaps?
More than willing to accept that she satisfies your definition of leaving a legacy.
I feel required to point out that we are commenting on an article about Italy, not the US. This is a MUCH broader discussion than just America, despite the general tendency to think that everything is about America.
I know we laugh about “economic anxiety”, but the fact is that as inequality continues to skyrocket, more people feel insecure and fearful. And the easy target always has been, and always will be, anyone who looks or behaves differently.
Lovely of you to hope for that, but let’s be realistic - if he pulls through he will be even more emboldened to be a shitty human being.
Also, if I may quibble - the statement by Clover was misleading.
Beautiful is probably the only song that came close for me when I was thinking about it. And it’s the kind of song I wouldn’t mind my daughter knowing and singing along to when she’s a bit older.
When I think of an artist with a legacy, as in an artist who will actually be remembered by a generation who wasn’t here for when that artist was topping the charts, I definitely don’t put Christina in that category.
I don’t even dislike “No Tears Left To Cry”, but at the same time I don’t get the love for it. It definitely doesn’t get me excited the way most of her last album did. In any case, I’m in the minority - chart performance has been better than most of her last album’s singles, if that’s anything to go by.
Exactly. I’m amazed anyone was around to make this announcement.
Being fucked by a recession is the PERFECT time to move overseas. Trust me.
I moved to another country back when I thought re-electing Bush Jr was a low point for America. Oh how young and naive I was.
If you’re an artist who struggles to make a living then you literally have nothing to do with what I’m talking about because we are talking about pieces of work that cost tens of thousands of dollars at a minimum. I don’t balk at spending a few hundred or potentially more if I see something by a local artist that I…
Australia is an odd place when it comes to abortion. The procedure is widely available and generally not an issue to obtain, but is technically illegal in a couple of states. Just not enforced. Not really sure where that puts it on the scale.
Wait, wait, wait. Is that Jewel, the singer, in one of those photos? I am so confused.
