Honestly so embarrassing that any "fan" thinks that's funny
Luke being trash? Who is surprised?
Dude I'm salivating at the thought of that. I mean... there's so much there that makes sense. Ethel and Doja would do it justice, complete with more food-related murder or murder-related food.I need Ethel and Doja to take matters into their own hands at this point because Rx is legitimately ridiculous. Give us the 2023 Telephone sequel we deserve
Wait this sounds like an amazing story. I'll go hunting for it in a bit unless someone wants to share.It's shitty but I still scream at her saying "okay boss man!" while openly being like 'this is shit' during her one studio session with him. I...don't think he realized what he was getting when he signed her nn.

IN EARLY 2020, through the emo-rapper Lil Aaron, an online collaborator, Cain was introduced to the staff of Prescription Songs, the independent music publisher and record label owned by the pop super-producer Dr. Luke. On her first trip to Los Angeles, Cain showed up at the company’s shiny building “looking like an absolute hillbilly,” she said. But her nearly manic creative energy and works in progress wowed them, and they offered her a deal.
“Inbred,” an EP that was Cain’s first official release last year, showed pop potential on arch, deadpanned tracks like “Crush” and “Michelle Pfeiffer.” But her enduring vision of “Preacher’s Daughter” was immovable, and Prescription promised her complete creative freedom even as it has tried to gently guide her career.
“Every person that I put her in the room with, she loved meeting them, but none of it felt authentic and true to her,” said Marlee Kula, Cain’s A&R executive at the company, who was responsible for setting up songwriting and studio sessions. “None of those ideas ended up making the record.”
That included Cain’s only meeting with Dr. Luke, a polarizing figure in the industry in light of his ongoing court battle with the singer Kesha over accusations of sexual abuse. (Cain said she didn’t know he owned the company until after she signed. “I’m not Googling CEOs when I’m eating a candy bar,” she said. “I was unemployed and it was a pandemic. I didn’t have the option to turn down money.”)
The two are unlikely to end up more intertwined. “He sent some music — God, I hope he doesn’t blacklist me for saying this — but he showed me some demos and was trying to do some stuff in his studio,” Cain said. “I was like, yeah, boss man, sure!”
“I went in the booth and I did some stuff,” she recalled. “He was like, simplify it, simplify it, stop doing so much embellishment! But I was doing the stuff that makes my music my music. He was like, make it catchier! And I was like, OK, this sucks. This is not going to work.”
Cain paused, considering her words. “Creatively, I have no need for him,” she said. “But I have no need for anyone.”
From the feature NYT did:
The fact she went on to make one of the best pop songs of last year with “American Teenager” entirely on her own is such a boss move.
Not a whole lot so far, except that the 20+-minute version of Waco and the final version of Dust Bowl are confirmed to be on it. My theory at the moment is that it's going to be announced and/or released while she's on tour starting in April/May.Sorry for double posting but do we know anything about the B-sides to Preacher's Daughter? I read somewhere about her releasing it this spring?

I'm not expecting them anytime soon but I feel like I remember her saying that she wanted to do a general b-sides collection at some point, so...who can never be sure. It'd definitely be nice to have them (and solo Michelle Pfeiffer, Lead Poisoning, ten minute God's Country demo, etc.) more widely availableWhat are the chances we finally get Crying During Sex, Earnhardt and Age of Delilah on streaming with the B-sides? If my plays for those songs actually counted towards my Spotify stats she'd probably be my most played artist already nn.
I really hope she finishes it and releases it later on if it's not already going to be on the B-sides, it feels like a sister song to Earnhardt and Crying During Sex in terms of melody and soundI’ll cry till my hair all falls out
Is it just me or is this room way too loud?
Don’t look now but everyone’s staring at us weird
And is it just me, or is there no air in here?
