Weirdly, it’s a bit of both! “Ms. Eilish is the anti-Britney Spears, the anti-Katy Perry,” is how the NYT article I linked to her described her. But I was always skeptical of how much, uh, actual work Lavigne did as a songwriter. Billie’s the real deal and much darker, I’d sooner compare her music to NIN or Portishead…
Normani is a fantastic dancer and I’m so excited about this video. The choreography is SICK.
I think the single digits set is the majority of OTR’s base, but the Millenials and early Zoomers support the absurdity, camp, and sheer gumption. There were campaigns on Twitter to keep him on the charts because (a) the song is cute (b) to spite Billboard Country (c) Support Black Queer Boys doing their thing despite…
When people come for Lil Nas X
I and my friends are in our early 30s, and last weekend we went on our annual trip to the mountains. We create elaborate grocery-list spreadsheets and carefully-curated shared Spotify playlists - we put a lot of time and thought into planning. Of the 11 of us, not one single person put Old Town Road on that playlist,…
I'm 47 and I love the song.🤷♀️
41. and love the heck out of it. :D
Can confirm—I am not a toddler. I am 30, about to be 31. I love this stupid song so much.
what are your* thoughts on the fact that a remix counts toward the song’s spot on the list?
Your review is spot on. All anyone is talking about is how over the top and unrealistic the show is. I am now 32 and in all my years this is the most realistic representation of my time in high school that I’ve seen in literature, tv, film, whatever. I see myself at that age in Rue completely.
Kat and Ethan are what I am most excited for in season 2! That whole prom scene......I watched it way too many times.
I’m so here for this! Kats character is far and away my favourite. I’m not familiar with Barbie but it was great to see someone articulate their views on body positivity and their issues with it.
This comment deserves all the stars.
I haven’t had a chance to watch this show yet and I am SO SO SO SO ready to binge it!
I think that [that line] is not so much being like, Kat suddenly finding out that fat people can be beautiful. It’s all about taking that pressure away. It’s more like, “I don’t give a fuck.”
I’ve been hoping to see a deep dive article with this actress, so this was a fantastic read. A lot of media focus has been on Zendaya, Hunter Schafer and Jacob Elordi (which is totally deserved as they are all fantastic on the show) but its gratifying to read an in-depth interview on one of the ‘supporting’ characters.
sam, can we get more lexi next season? we didn’t even get to see her hook up with anybody at the dance. can lexi have some fun too? she’s just there being a friend to everyone and nobody shows her any love.
Such a great read - Thanks BARBIE and ASHLEY!!
Great, timely, especially in the week of more newspaper consolidations.
Fuck, now that song is in my head. FEW TIMES I BEEN AROUND THAT BLOCK...
