Brooke Candy – I Blame Die Antwoord

2012_08_25_Show Biz BallSo there’s a new slutbag on the block and she goes by the name of Brooke Candy. This “rapper” used to be a stripper and the main message behind her first single “Das Me” is “being called a slut is a compliment”.

The video for “Das Me” plays out like a garish nightmare of freakishly long fingernails, pink braids and outfits most people wouldn’t be seen dead in.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for edgy, controversial artists but I have a serious problem with being shocking just for the sake of it and the general lack of intelligence artists like Brooke Candy seem to possess.

Just watch the video and you’ll see what I mean.

 

 

If that isn’t an argument for why strippers should stay on the pole and as far away from careers in music as possible, I don’t know what is.

It’s just so rough. What is sexy about that video? She’s fucking terrifying! I wouldn’t want to be within 50 metres of someone like that never mind in bed with her. Sies man!

The easiest way to gain fame and notoriety is to shock people.

Just look at Die Antwoord. They have that shit down.

 

 

But again, I have a serious issue with this video because a) As is the case with Brooke Candy, the song itself it shit and b) They are so obviously trying to stir shit for the sake of getting some attention that it comes across as just plain desperate.

Sad truth is that we will see millions more artists like this in the future and the message behind their music and their videos is only going to get more banal over time so I guess we better get used to it.

Well done mankind. You never cease to amaze us all.

    Yeah, but remember for people with taste and refinement and character, this will always be shit. Only for morons and fools will this ever be called entertainment. Then remember that what you focus on grows in your life, and what you ignore just fades away…so just ignore my friend!

      Sometimes, not often, but sometimes after a fucking shitty day when there’s nothing I wouldn’t give for the world to just go and fuck itself, a comment like this appears on this junkyard site floating out there in the ether and just like that, my life is instantly better.

      Thank you SpaceBeast. You are so fucking right. What you focus on does grow and what you ignore fades away.

      I can’t tell you how poignant that is in my life right now.

      Come back any time and comment often, the beer is cold and the kicks are free ;)

    Lest not forget that The Beatles were also considered “shocking” and “edgy” for their time.
