Blind Item #3

Once again the Academy decided to pretend the three named ingenue didn't exist in favor of the artist who was more willing to go along with the narrative the record industry wanted. What that artist doesn't know is that she is going to be one and done much like the foreign born one named singer that came before her that everyone thought was the second coming at the time a few years ago.

what does it take to be a successful author ? I would say that initial reviews and marketing definitely boost your book. I used https://usabookreviewers.com/christmas-gift to get a few reviews and also promote my book. Hopping to be in the top 100 genre lists and see better sales this Christmas season…

It's sad, I can't even listen to Lana del Rey songs anymore, always reminds me of her writing love songs to Harvey.

Once again white girl mediocrity wins.I'm not going to pretend to be sort of black/Latino activist but even my prejudiced ass saw right through the academy's b.s.Let's kindly go back in time to the Adele vs Beyonce situation.I believe I recall the industry telling black people that the need to sell music that was more mainstream(as beyonce's songs were too 'black') and on top of that be more profitable.They specifically said they don't go by craft and talent along but by popularity and sells.Flashforward into the future,all the artists selling out shows, all the artists who are popular,all the artists who are topping the billboards were black and Latino with an exception of end sheeran,ariana grande and BTS who honestly in my opinion deserved better.To see black and Latino shoved to the same old categories meant just for them again and again especially when they making your albino ass rich is just disgusting.

Vita said...

Agree that it's Billie Eilish and Lorde...was Lana nominated?

This and That said...

Lol

Brayson87 said...

Yeah whatever to Lorde?

I don't know about Billie Eilish, she didn't come from nowhere and she's totally Gen Z.

squirrelmistress said...

i guess they stopped going by talent and decided the best blowjob wins.

ZZZedMaster said...

They probably wanted the talented deserving female artists to sleep with them.poor grande and all the women who were told to step up by that disgusting misogynist Neil Dugan.

SwishyFishy said...

I don't "get" Billie Eilish. She sounds like she's mumbling into the microphone. I see no true singling talent in any of the songs I've heard. Can someone explain to me what I'm not hearing and why she won? Her music is awful and her voice is practically non-existent, in my humble opinion.

ZZZedMaster said...

Was Khalid even nominated?was he there?You are not about to tell me Hollywood's golden boy not too long ago,didn't meet the academy's expectation.He is the black male version of Adele and has the most 'safe' radio friendly music across all demo graphs.Talk about being snubbed.

Brayson87 said...

@Swishy, She's different from most singers, there are few alternatives, so she's a Pepper. Most of the time you want cola, but sometimes you get a little burnt on everything being the same, so you turn to Dr Pepper.

Sd Auntie said...

Love Billie's voice and songs. Tyler the creator too. Its MDMA music

Monkeyweather said...

Yeah, dunno. I'd explain it for you, but it beggars belief that she's the "best" they've got.
Interesting taste in clothes though. She's definitely setting trends in younger crowds.

Three Named Ingenue: Lil Nas X

Lana Del Rey has been around for a while now. Not sure how she could be considered an ingenue.

longtimereader said...

Agree Eilish who's hot at the moment with a good popular album. Lorde who's 2nd effort sucked and has since disappeared. Ariana was the popular choice but Scooter couldn't/didn't want to fix it.Lana is the hipster critics choice who got snubbed again.

Brayson87 said...

@Counter, Your point has been made for years, but that's how Enty always refers to her. Just like he's in denial about someone being more than a one hit wonder.

Clark Green said...

i feel like i need to go to sunday school after listening to one of eilish's songs.

Bridget said...

Ariana Grande - she snubbed the Grammy's last year because they wouldn't let her control what songs she sung so the Grammy's snubbed her this year. Billie Eilish or however you say her name...in my opinion has no talent at all and is too young to figure out the name of the game yet so she goes along with anything/everything.

Personally I think Ariana Grande has a beautiful voice and can outsing pretty much anyone who's ever come along.

sandybrook said...

Entern look up the word "ingenue" see the correct meaning of it and finally stop misusing it for Lana Del Ray. She isn't an ingenue and probably never was one in her early days either.

Troy Dyer said...

Lana’s album was another Lana album. Billie is a breath of fresh (as the kids say) who isn’t selling her body or fucking fat men to get ahead. Granted, Billie needs her brother for her beats and needs to put out something new ASAP to keep her audience entertained, but I think she’s a great artist.

AlleyKat said...

Whoa nellie! Down with the kids!

AlleyKat said...

Agree...my votes with Lizzo.

NoMoreBullshit said...

Lana del rey is Not ingenue.. She's far from being that. Lana's album was an OK album, what you expect from her I guess. I don't understand why lorde's fans love so much Melodrama, it's an awful album. Billie is just the new hot thing.. Give it some years and everyone is going to look back and say seriously Billie was "the best" of 2019?

YummyBoogers said...

Lana sees herself as the perpetual ingenue, via her styling and imagery - which is all heavily curated and nolstagia-steeped.

If Enty referred to her as a WANNABE "ingenue" then it'd fit more accurately.

Gator said...

Lana del Rey has been around forever, and previously known as Lizzie Grant

MissDavie said...

If Billie Eilish is not a flash in the pan, then there should be no more flashes and no more pans forever. I get she hits the sweet spot for the Zoomers, but there's just not much to see or hear.
Lourde was one or possible two and done, but she really hit a tiny bit before literal children's tastes started dictating the music industry. Now it's 9-12 year old's who control what we hear.

Unknown said...

Billie Vanilli is a creep. She looks like she has been drugged and trafficked. Her backstory is complete bullshit. She is an MKUltraed Joker.

taurus1987 said...

enty needs to stay off stan twitter

AListDiva said...

Billie deserved best new artist, but not all the four major categories she did win. Lana was nominated and yes @ZZZedMaster Khalid was nominated for Record of the year for Talk. I think HER or Ariana should of won, Billie may be a flash in the pan and gone in two years like Lorde.

I feel HER should have won she makes adult music! Ariana music is crap besides thank u next!

JamJam said...

None of you must have a 15 year old in the house? I do. She's been following Billie since had a dozen fans on YouTube. I didn't get it at first but then I took her to a BE concert. I'm a huge music lover and within 2 minutes of the kid being on stage I totally got it. Music hit me differently in person than when I heard it come from her room. Stadium filled with teenage girls immediately jumping up and down in rhythm, tears falling during the sad songs to someone that is their age, relates to the how overwhelming difficult the world is for them right now, isn't flashing her body over talent, wrote her own lyrics and music w/her brother. I watched the whole show and for a 17 yr old just out of the gate it was great. The song she sang at the Grammy's is the highlight of her show. Her and her brother playing guitar on a bed like they did when they wrote it...and it floats up high over the audience - all the kids lit up their phones like stars. It was honest and not manufactured. I'd take that show over an Arianna any day.

Brayson87 said...

+1 JamJam, Billie Eilish is not a bim some sleazy producer picked up at the bus station to make a star. She's really connected with tweens, teens and older people, and has been doing so for years. Everywhere audiences are begging for something different, new people and things they can relate to, throw their money at, but their pleas fall on deaf ears. The sausage factory only makes the same prepackaged fare for all.

Scott said...

Lorde can always go back to farmin' with Tegridy anytime she wants!

Regina said...

If it's not Lana then who else is a young innocent 3-named female singer that was there? Ingenue means an innocent or unsophisticated young woman which sounds like Billie but she won a grammys and is a 2 named singer. we need a 3 named singer

Countervail said...

Well that's the thing, I don't think anyone would describe Lana Del Ray as "young" (at 34), or "naive" or "innocent" (since her first album came out 9 years ago).

Teachermom said...

I love Billies music. Granted her brother writes it and is super talented. My daughters (18 and 23) love her music. If you listen to the words, it truly hits deeper thoughts than getting a manicure because your boyfriend doesn’t like you (no offense to Lizzo, I actually love her music too). The music video for I had a dream made me cry. I also, as a teacher, love that she doesn’t slut herself out. She purposefully wears baggie clothes so people don’t comment on her body, if that makes a couple kids out there not decide anorexia is for them, than it is worth it.

JamJam said...

@teachermom agree!

Mango said...

I'm a huge fan of Billie Eilish. She's an amazingly talented lyricist; it's hard to believe the songs on WWAFAWDWG were written when she was 14-15-16 years old. I don't want to say anything corny like, "she has an old soul", but she really is mature beyond her years and she's not too cool to freak out when meeting her own idols, Bieber et. al.

Lana Del Ray - I find her a little wishy-washy but I do like her cover of Doin' Time.

Magnolia Melee said...

All I know is, I love that Lana brought Sticks :D

laineylizbro said...

@Magnolia the only reason I watched the Red Carpet coverage! Go Sticks!

Yaccub said...

Billie Eilish was so obviously sexually molested and still processing it, and her industry fame whore brother / family control her emotionally physically and mentally

Bubbles said...

ZZZZ, DJ Khalid is a Black Adele......but he's Arab.

BRAD PITT said...

Billie Eilish and her Brother Made Music in The Bedroom

Don Kieballs said...

@enty - when did you become a teenage girl? The Scammys is Stan Twitter. Billie Eilish made an album that connected with a lot of people.

@Bridget "Billie Eilish or however you say her name." - It's called spelling, and you obviously know the correct spelling. Or are you being edgy? So edgy. OMG She is so edgy.

YummyBoogers said...

I cluck everytime I see photos of Eyelash, because the poor bird looks pissed off 24/7. Anyone know why??!!?? Thinkin' maybe she's got a perma-case of the Mondays...
