Okay, so over the weekend, I spotted a picture of a current pop sensation (no, not Lady Gaga) wearing a t-shirt with the VOID insignia on it. I was deeply incredulous that a whistleheaded pop irritant like _____ dared sully Void's good name with her vileness. Upon sharing this revelation with a colleague this morning, he answered: "Dude, check out her MySpace page ... she likes good music." I find it imposible to believe that a child capable of making such awful pop would be fan of decent music, but check out her list of "influences" and see if you can guess who I'm talking about:

Kinda think you're overestimating how important 'appealing to the indie audience' is here, tbh

List is sort of weird but does read to me like one person's hypothetical taste in music - reminds me of quite a lot of ppl I know who are basically 'indie' but not by design so much as their tastes just... gravitated that way

Y'know what I think it is that's so upsetting about Shania wearing Ramones and AC/DC shirts? It's that she herself is nothing but a sparkless careerist. Based on her press, she's has nothing but contempt for her audience and positively LOATHES being a "public person." Beyond that, her music is completely inconsequential, banal and rife with the same amount of meaningless cliché that plagues, say, the Corrs! Meanwhile, whether you appreciate them or not, the Ramones and AC/DC are artists who have *INSPIRED* people. There are more bands that were spawned in the wake of these two giant names than Shania could ever hope to affect. The Ramones and AC/DC inspire *PASSION* in their fans, whereas Shania merely manufactures fucking PRODUCT and shifts units to consumers who clearly don't have very high musical standards (does this make them subhuman? No, just that music doesn't interest them). Therefore, it is offensive to folks who *DO* take music seriously (whether you think that's silly or not) that Shania is limply trying to imply some affinity/appreciation for individuals who actually make music of quality. I doubt Shania even enjoys music to begin with.

SIMON: I'm told you had just about the perfect SAT scores.

Ms. SEBERT: It was close - 1500. I was, like, very studious. I was actually in the international baccalaureate program, in AP, I, like, loved physics and math and I was in the marching band. And then after that practice I would drive to Belmont - it's a college in Nashville - and just for fun listen in on Cold War history classes. Just 'cause I just think it's so interesting.

And I was so curious kind of about all that I ended up taking my first solo trip to Cuba. So point being: I was very studious and really curious about a lot of things that are much deeper than, you know, partying and dancing.

Also I suspect when lady pop stars wear t-shirts w/ logos of bands they probably don't care for, it's less an attempt at edginess than just because they have logos that look good

Markelby's Greasy Spoon (DJ Mencap), Monday, 15 March 2010 15:05 (seven years ago) Permalink

Interestingly, not many of these apparent influences make the list:

One of the benefits of the half-talk-half-rap delivery she uses for many of her verses is that it’s infinitely plastic; she can adopt any tone, apply any level of sarcasm or referentiality. At various times throughout the album I thought I heard Kim Gordon, Moon Unit Zappa, Johnnette Napolitano, Debora Iyall (Romeo Void), Deborah Evans-Stickland (Flying Lizards), Kathleen Hanna, and Laurie Anderson. Which if you’re trying to make a list of feminist forebears is about as good as you can hope for, and I hope I’m not just hallucinating the similarities. (Definitely not with Laurie Anderson.)

Um just in case anyone gives a rat's ass, it's Ke$ha. And the Queen, Beach Boys, heart, etc. one NickB posted above is Katy Perry (my first guess).

Can we have a counterthread where one of Alex's favorites wears a 3OH!3 shirt and lists nothing but Hilary Duff and Hilary Duff remixes as influences?

xhuxk, didn't you write that Stacey Q wore Motorhead t-shirts? Not sure if that fits or if it was a joke to begin with but...

Kevin John Bozelka, Monday, 15 March 2010 15:20 (seven years ago) Permalink

Was it Motorhead, or was it Sex Pistols? But either way, she definitely worse shirts. (Sometimes, anyway -- in at least one photo published in I think Toronto's Eye Weekly in the '90s, she wore body paint instead.)

xp I'm told Ace Terrier is one Jonathan Bogart (who I'm pretty sure I'd never knowingly read a word by until last week.)

last year Miley Cyrus made a big deal of wanting to meet Radiohead at the Grammys, and a few months later said that she's never heard a Jay-Z song and doesn't listen to pop music. I think general cynicism about pop music is so widespread that even the people that make it, especially the young singers, are just kind of dismissive of what they do and try to make sure everyone knows they like much cooler music than the stuff they get rich off of.

some dude, Monday, 15 March 2010 15:26 (seven years ago) Permalink

and I guess ostensibly having a bunch of pop stars with cool underground influences would make pop more interesting, but instead I think them being so divorced from what they do, taking songs they don't like from producers/songwriters and just kind of going through the motions with them (and maybe later doing a 'difficult' record once their career's already on the wane), is just a huge drag.

ithappens, Monday, 15 March 2010 15:36 (seven years ago) Permalink

Some of that stuff may even have influenced her music, believe it or not (and not just the indie-style track she ends her album with.)

Other parts of the page are misspelled enough that I doubt they were made by the same author who included "Optiganally Yours" in the list.

Once again, I like her music and don't mean this as a diss. I think it's entirely possible, even likely, that she could have a fulfilling music collection.

I hated the video version of the single but that live version is actually pretty damn good. Maybe it's just the production and the horrible autotune processing of the single that I didn't like. eep. When she sings it normally it's just fun bubblegum.

wow this is pretty otm - found the original all sorts of unlistenable but take the trebly autotune vomit away and the hooky bubblegum pop song is revealed - it's almost too nursery-rhymey and lite now. i said on the jukebox that i don't think her songs suck because she's incapable of better, but more because trebly autotune vomit is the common currency of the charts these days, and she seems intent on being more trebly, more autotuney and more vomity than anyone else.

talking of the uk funky thread, we are aware that for some inexplicable reason there are remixes of "tik tok" by cooly g and untold, right?
