Awful awful awful! "One woman just added a feminist twist to the lyrics of a Drake hit, and it's pretty damn awesome. On Oct. 3, 27-year-old Javetta Laster rewrote the lyrics to "Hotline Bling" in a Facebook post. Her new words give the song, which was originally released this past July and got a much-discussed video full of (not so fresh) dance moves just this week, a distinctively feminist bent. " Okay so insulting the person is fine ala "not so fresh dance moves". That paragraph is followed by a gif intended to mock the dancing. And the rewrites arent actually translations as they act like they are, but mostly assumptions that make no sense in the context of this one song....talking about stuff that has nothing to do with this song....why this is getting positive attention while hypocritically putting down the artist..jesus. "Let's take another look at the two sets of lyrics. From Drake: Why you never alone? Why you always touching road? Used to always stay at home, be a good girl. You was in the zone, yeah. You should just be yourself. Right now, you're someone else. And Laster's spot-on "translation": You used to stay at home and be someone I saw fitting into the patriarchal expectations of women to be infantilized good "girls" which is some bizarre father/daughter husband/wife dynamic left over from women being considered adult children & property." Nothing spot on about that...the entire thing is a bunch of assumptions. And bringing something in that has nothing to do with anything in this context. Patriarchal society!?
