"Do you really like rock music? Because you’re African-American. That would be like me being into Lil Wayne."
Courtney Love to a black fan
Oh Fuck her ODDDD
Two equally shitty things are going on in this quote. First think is that black people invented rock and roll, were the pioneers of rock and roll, and up until the mid-eighties were still pushing rock and roll to new heights. The Rolling Stones are named after a Muddy Waters song. The Beatles were an R&B band before they blew up. Little Richard and Chuck Berry were doing that shit before most of these motherfuckers picked up a guitar.
Second, why wouldn’t people of all colors be into Lil’ Wayne? Why is it that when it is a black artist they can’t be universal and seen as people who set trends, create new musical space, or are important in the history of music.
To sum up there is so much wrong with this bullshit.
This overrated chick here
The utter stupidity of this is to label ANY type of music of being confined just to a specific race. That is INSULTING to music as a whole and IGNORANT of musical culture too. Music is an ESSENTIAL part of my life. Probably why I’ve never once listened to Courtney Love.
i fuck with myself heavily
