whispers: you do know you don't have to like it right? being overly (and i mean overly) pressed when you don't like something someone has created (and is obviously ultra personal to them) makes no sense to me; no-one needs you to love it, it's totally ok; you don't have to connect to it, nor understand it! you don't even need to be mad (or annoying)! i'm still lol'ing at the gays being apoplectic at Lorde for daring to write an album that wasn't balls to the wall circuit party soundtrack; looks like those same kiddies are having emotions here too. feeling so desperately owed by the world is... revealing. On a separate note, watched the movie last night. Super cute aesthetic and generally pretty good but i'm glad I'd listened to the album a few times before watching; the way the music is cut up doesn't make for a great introduction to the simplicity and elegance of the songwriting (set against the bombast of the production). the part where she's broken into doll pieces and carefully collected into the ambulance was really stunning and memorable.
