I know those are 1960s dollars we're talking about, but doesn't $25 a day sound like a pretty attractive heroin habit? It set me daydreaming a little bit. I feel like I could get down with that. That's only $750 a month: cheaper than my rent, and think of the money I'd save on food and alcohol and, y'know, everything besides heroin.
Last week, I made mention of TYLER, THE CREATOR's spat with SARA QUIN of Tegan and Sara: she objected to his gruesomely misogynist and homophobic lyrics, and he suggested that his genitals may be of some assistance to her. This week, the Tyler scrutiny is intensifying: GLAAD has released a statement in support of Quin and announced that they'll henceforth be monitoring Tyler more closely.
GLAAD, if you start paying attention to this kid, prepare to be mad bummed. If you want to get even more bummed, read the comments on an allhiphop.com story on the Tyler/Quin debate: "What a bunch of f**kin faggots," says commenter Hatejacket. "Someone should rape that b***h." Pretty ghastly, but it's probably a mistake to judge an artist by his fans. Plus, when Tyler says stuff almost exactly like that, it's art, right? Right?
Aw, I'm just teasing. I'm a music critic, and we all love that rascally rape rapper!
