robin thicke gets praised for liberating women in “blurred lines” where the women are completely naked and he’s rapping about finding a good girl and telling her how much she wants it
marina and the diamonds gets torn apart for having guys in their boxers dance around in “how to be a heart breaker” where she sings about being broken by a man before and not wanting to feel that again
and you still dont see the problem
I tried drawing gaga in pastels and it just turned out really bad lol
The performance I did years ago for ‘Paparazzi’ was kind of a major moment for me as a breakout performer, it was the moment where people really got to see what I was about and bringing performance art to the stage. We’re doing that again this year with a different performance and I’m so excited with what we’re doing. It’s so me, it’s everything I want to say right now. It certainly will be memorable so I hope that the fans will love it as much as we do. I would say actually that you should try not to expect anything because whatever you’re expecting is not going to take place! That’s sort of the idea to always create the unexpected. I will just say that it’s the most physically challenging performance I’ve ever done. And I think that’s mostly due to my new inspired ambition after my surgery and the tour ending earlier in the year. So this is my way of fighting back. I don’t like to fight with my words. I like to fight with my talent. So that’s really what this performance is all about.
