She’s alright. I find her somewhat inoffensive. I think people who love her so much are just tired of electronic music moreso than she’s supposed to be amazing or whatever.
And I don’t find her weird either, “Sorry” by Beyoncé is weirder than anything she’s done. Nor do I see her going out on a limb as much as Gaga or Winehouse. And pop machine wise she doesn’t deliver as solid of a product as Ariana imho.
One could ask the same question about every privileged Western kid raised on promises and hooked on instant gratification plus body image/ success image/ happiness image promoted by social media and Hollywood.
She deftly carved herself a niche sound and masses of kids related.
I like some of her work, FWIW, and love that she kind of forged her own path.
As for problem substance abuser, I work in a tourist town where nice folks swarm in go to the beach and get falling down drunk then fall in traffic or at their hotels, or better still drive drunk to wherever they drove to the bar from.
Problem substance abuse is an essential service in America!
Denial runs deem among those who have "a couple of drinks" and then drive home, feeling righteous enough to try to talk their way out of a stop and a test, but sorta knowing they are probably above the limit. Cops are paid by communities who get income from places that serve booze to patrons they know are driving home.
Where you been?
The bigger question is what will stop people once they get dependent on legal acceptable substance abuse or non substance abuse like gambling/ scratch tickets/ sex/ shopping/ video gaming/ general device addiction/ and of course edibles that burn and seem to be used in moving cars and non smoking sections everywhere.
So since society has an economically vital substance abuse problem, why not Billie too?
Like a huge portion of kids today, she suffers from medically defined anxiety disorder IIRC.
How about the epidemic of anxiety disorder in youth and young adults?
I'm just asking a question, it's not about her being a woman or me being sexist. Tons of people in the music biz are substance abusers.
Are you ok with my response?
I think she (and her brother) bridges "digital creative at home" with "compelling stage act" very well. Dunno about the interpersonal part of your question--she seems to have overcome a lot of her internal turmoil, so I hope not. Glad she got rid of her Human Vape Shop look.
She and her brother have been creating music that is not imitating anyone else or using the typical pop hits formulas and which, to me, sounds genuine and sincere. I agree with @elihu about her Billie Holiday-ish ability to sing in a way that feels to each listener like she is targeting them individually. I think she's great. Amazing really when you consider their ages (especially when they first broke out).
the bad guy thing kind of reminded me of a more subdued version of stuff from this era of shibuya-kei (late 90s-early 00s). the whispery vocals and being decidedly minor. there's a lot of stuff from back then that sounds similar to bad guy, but it's escaping me right now. i guess it was fresh for western ears.
Good look 'behind the scenes' that shows a little bit of the creativity, passion, attention to detail and obsessiveness that you find so often in good, successful artists.
34 takes to get the sound of the word 'duh' just right...
I’m a 50 year old white guy. It’s nice that you asked, but at this point, I’m not even sure that I care what I think.
Yeah, pretty far fetched to think a very young woman with some pretty fast success in the music business could possibly develop an unhealthy relationship with drugs or alcohol. You just never see that.
I think she's actually pretty good. She had a couple of arrangements that I thought were catchy and clever.
I’m still up in the air about her. Sometimes I do sometimes I don’t. I guess it’s really mood based. More so than most. But her fender signature ukulele is a really cool look and pretty solid playing one for the price.
Kinda think I want it. It’s cool. And different. And I’m not overly fond of most signature models. Kinda weird. IMHO. Rather have one and make it my own if I want a unique piece. (Unless you play in a true tribute band.)
She was my stepdaughter's favorite for a while.
I listened a bit and didn't hate it, but it's not for me.
I did a cursory search and my take away is she's a showbiz kid/pop product. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Cute, talented, but if you ask me a little too much too soon, only 19 and all that success.
I hope she survives it.
WOW! No more than any number of young people imo.
Personally, her music's not for me (don't actually think I'm quite in her demographic )... But, good luck to her
I love her. She's so pretty too.
She's already gone through some serious body-shaming and handled it brilliantly IMO.
Her recent turn at the Met Gala was like a caterpillar becoming a butterfly - going from the hip-hop kid in slouchy sweats to borderline Marilyn Monroe. When I first saw her entrance at the gala I didn't even realize it was her.
I think she'll be all right.
I’ve listened to several pieces and it’s just not my style.
I'm struggling with 'problemed'.
