I am writing more and more about trashy stuff but when there’s nothing better to talk about and when it’s as hilarious as this story, why shouldn’t I do it? We live in a weird culture, and if the internet reflects this culture, it is one which celebrates the butt, the ass, with Kardashian’s large one thrown at my face every time I open a website… And now DJ producer Diplo is trying to go with the flow of this steatopygia celebration, suggesting that Taylor Swift should buy a new one? How low can we go? I am still wondering, but this is what he tweeted 2 days ago:
‘Someone should make a kickstarter to get taylor swift a booty’
Really idiotic and trashy, but since fans are totally embedded in this ass-obsessed trashy culture, someone immediately created this kickstarter page! The lack of support (68 supporters only) and the ridiculous amount raised so far ($85) may temporarily reassure me about human nature, to a certain extend because 3,000 people retweeted Diplo’s tweet and he even approved the page by tweeting the hell out of it…. some people have donated and I just wonder what this person will ever do with the money? Is this even legal?
But there’s a second act to this stupid story, with a third character who tweeted back to Diplo: ’@diplo should we do something about your tiny penis while we’re at it hm’… and this, coming from the young Lorde, is quite smart and funny, although totally below the belt like this entire story! So far nobody has started a page, but it’s certainly not because women have more class than men,… just look at Kim’s giant butt trying to break the internet and we are back to the beginning of this story!
Seriously, why has pop culture focused so much on this part of the human anatomy lately? Is it the influence of some degenerated products of hip hop culture such as J-Lo, Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus?
Another layer of stupidity was just added to the booty story, and her name is Katy Perry: she is rumored to be Diplo’s current girlfriend (really?) and ABC news think that Diplo was just literally reanimating some bad blood between Swift and Perry, since Swift’s song ‘Bad Blood’ off ‘1989’ is supposed to be about a famous pop-star, and very probably Perry herself: ‘She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour,’ said Swift, ‘She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational—you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.’
How old are these people? Diplo is 36, Perry 30, Swift 24 and Lorde is 18, so technically she is the only one entitled to this kind of high school behavior! And because this story never ends, pictures like this one, or this one, this one, this one,… show how close Diplo and Lorde are/were? He is all over her Instagram account, so may be she knows what she is talking about?… or the whole thing is a total joke which made me waste too much time already!
