fun thing. blog is gone lol
Can’t for the life of me imagine why.
what the fuck is this though seriously
a good fucking time thats what
I really like how she tries to defend herself by stating how much she loooveees Japanese culture
"You guys I did this with Japanese people it’s cool"
"I go to Japan like so much ok I know the culture"
"I know so many Japanese people and even the director was Japanese!"
God these bullshit statements alone just insinuates that hey Japanese people are working with me so I can’t be doing anything wrong or racist, otherwise they’d tell me!
Yeah because even if you’re an artist at the end of her career and desperately trying to save it, you’re still a well-known name and PoC don’t have many opportunities in this industry and will take any job that’s offered to them. This includes everyone who worked on this video. Why?
Because People of Color are easily replaced. They’re expendable.
this is the most ridiculous statement. they work for a rather large record label in Japan. do you really think they’re going to get fired because they didn’t want to work with Avril Lavigne? please don’t make comments about the music industry (and, specifically, Japanese people in the Japanese music industry) when you so obviously know nothing about it.
Oh, you don’t want to work with her cause her entire music video is racist? Whatever. We’ll just find another director/choreographer/dancer.
who do you think wrote the music video? because it sure as fuck wasn’t Avril. it was the JAPANESE RECORD LABEL and the JAPANESE PEOPLE who work for it. they worked out the music video and Avril went along with it. you really need to read a book about the music industry.
That’s it. That’s literally it. That’s how it works. So we suck it up and work with these people cause the industry doesn’t value us enough and not working only harms us, not the artist.
sorry, can you list one source that says Japanese people are not valued within the Japanese music industry?
I mean, spewing random Japanese words that have nothing to do with your song is just short of saying Ching Chong Long Ting Tong, but you know. She’s just admiring the culture.
Sure does remind me of this skit:
This is extremely racist and insulting. I’m an Asian American. I studied Japanese for two years. I’ve yet to begin to scratch the surface of Japanese culture and etiquette and I’m not even that confident or comfortable speaking or writing it because I don’t feel as if I know enough about it to say I can speak Japanese.
so… saying random words in Japanese.. in a song written FOR Japanese fans.. in a song that wasn’t even released as a single in the US… is racist?
Singing random words in a language you don’t know is racist when you use it for the sake of a song that just appropriates a part of their culture so much.
which part of their culture is it appropriating again?
Then you have your Japanese backup dancers. They all look the same, they’re silent, and “kawaii”.
well, you know, back up dancers don’t usually talk during music videos, so…?
Of course, to you dear Avril, this sure doesn’t perpetuate the stereotype of cute, obedient, and submissive Asian
womengirls right? They’re just too damn cute and fit your set!
because Avril hired the dancers herself. her Japanese choreographer wasn’t the one who told them how to act on set and how to dance to the song or anything. nope. it was all Avril.
God. You’re turning 30. I don’t care if you want to act childish or dress a certain way. But grow the fuck up and stop making arguments that defend your racist actions and try to justify them by name-dropping everything Japanese.
again… what the fuck is racist about this?
You’re not Japanese. You don’t know Japanese. You don’t know Japanese culture. Your song doesn’t “honor” or “flatter” Japanese people or Japanese culture. It perpetuates the stereotype the West already holds and you try to pass it off as being cute and creative and appreciative and dedicate it to your Japanese fans.
sorry, didn’t realize you were an expert on Avril Lavigne! So you know exactly how much of her 30 years she’s spent in Japan? you know how much Japanese culture she knows? also, “dedicate it to your Japanese fans?” it wasn’t dedicated to them. it was literally written FOR them. as in, on her JAPANESE MUSIC LABEL. IN JAPAN. WITH JAPANESE EXECUTIVES WHO MAKE A LOT MORE MONEY THAN AVRIL LAVIGNE.
No. Fuck you.
but really. Avril wrote the song (with the help of three other people) and that was about all the artistic control she had over it. she didn’t make the music video or design the costume or hire the dancers or choreograph the steps. so why are you acting like she did?
not sure why people don’t automatically say “shapeshifting” when asked what they want their superpower to be. you could become anyone you want. even fictional characters. anyone. cosplay would always be spot-on. dysphoria wouldn’t exist. perfection
