Even if she isn't faking it like a prima-donna, If you blow your voice out within half a tour, you're doing something seriously wrong. Does she even sing most of the songs? A lot of it sounded like playback
The movie was ultimately a commercial failure. All the big premiers were superfluous. I'm sure more revenue was made from popcorn sales at the theaters than the film at hand.
Changing the topic, I was watching footage of Bjork performing live from last year and it dawned on me how truly talented she is with all of the stage props and visuals within her own aesthetic. She's what Melanie wishes she could be, but simply can't be.
It seems the hype for the album and movie has died down tremendously. She's a wash-up already. Where does she go from here?
K-12 has fallen 8 positions in the Billboard 200 and it hasn't been one month. She's all the way at 92 on the Top 100 Artists chart. She also makes ZERO appearances on the Top 100 Songs because of her refusal to release promotional singles.
Agreed. I always thought Melanie was beautiful-- I've even called her "perfect" before. She just became a really horrible human being on the inside as time went on and now I resent her and seemingly her every move. There's a few of her old acoustic covers that I still really enjoy. As much as I blame her, I feel like fame really clouded her judgement. Unfortunately this recent project is going to cause a further ego trip.
The point is that Melanie knows virtually nothing about the pure hell that is eating disorders. It comes off as very patronising. She's even been outed by ex-friends for exaggerating anxiety disorders and exploiting them in her music.
There was an mp3 source that I listened to, but it's since been deleted as is the case with a lot of them. You just have to get lucky and find the right one I guess. I lot of them are shady ass malware sites
I already started writing the next Melanie Martinez album. We're gonna be rich. "Don't let them bring you down today You don't need to be plastic You're perfectly imperfect, so fuck what they say Student loans, student loans, oooh" In all seriousness, this is one of the worst records I have ever listened to. All bias aside. It's up there with that "Angelic 2 The Core" album that Corey Feldman did. Same poor, yet overproduced musical style with a bunch of shit in the background, nonsensical lyrics with monotone delivery, a lame concept all around. It sounds more like something I would make in ProTools in an hour while waiting to board a flight rather than something that took four years with a ton of producers and co-writers.
