What this issue with Fiona Apple highlights... You don't have a right to evaluate anybody's body size and you don't have a right to speculate about if anybody has an eating disorder... This is not just the case for celebrities... Telling somebody to eat more or eat less is just fucked up and than pretending that you're doing it because you in some way care, when really you're mostly just policing and, even if there was a problem, your comments aren't helping.
And Christina Aguilera tells her label: "I'm a fat girl deal with it", when they tried to make her lose weight for her upcoming album release.
LEAVE FIONA ALONE!!!!
PS My Diamanda Galas-singing performance went real well - except for fucking up the ending where a stretched out low note goes directly into a falsetto high note - but room for improvement is always a fantastic opportunity to push yourself to the next level and I'm fucking proud to even be testing the waters of Galas's vocal style and range and being able to do it without sounding horrible (And I've added her song "See that my grave is kept clean" to my poetry readings/performances in Stockholm, November 15 @ El Mundo and Paris, November 28 @ La Mutinerie). And NOW I'm finally back in Stockholm - after 1.5 months of traveling back and forth for work and play (only 7 days at home) I'm finally here to stay. STOCKHOLM - I'M HERE, I'M QUEER, I'M WEIRD - GET USED TO IT and everybody I love in this city I FINALLY have the time to see you. YAY ♥
PS 2 I'm dj:ing tonight (wednesday) at my phenomenallyfantastic friend's in the equally phenomenallyfantastic band TRV's release-party. Gonna play Riot Grrrl, Feminist hip-hop and some weird-ass avantgarde experimental shit =) - it all happens at 21 o'clock at Underbara Bar on Kommer bara spela vita hetero cis-män för jag har läst Pär Ströms bok och är nu alldeles övertygad om att det faktiskt är den gruppen i samhället som har det svårast... Klart, från ett sånt oerhört lidande och förtryck skapas den största konsten och intressantaste berättelserna fyllda med genomtänkta reflektioner, insikter och maktanalyser!!! Ehhh......... ha.. PINK POWER!!!!!!!! Eller jag menar...
