She is a fine example of the art being better than the artist, and it’s her holier than thou attitude with which I take an issue.

No, the problem is she was practically militant about artists not having opinions, and now she’s militant with her opinions.

To put it plainly she was either ignorant and naive, or she is a hypocrite for the reversal.

For someone as plugged into the music industry as she was at the start of her career I just don’t buy that she was ignorant/naive.

Since the beginning of time art has been inherently political, so like...I just don’t buy it.

She had this whole "artists shouldn't have opinions" phase, and now she won't stop injecting herself into discussions.
Exactly, it’s like she finally bought into the politics of showbiz after sitting on the fence for a while.

Which is funny because she was doing everything possible a few years ago to never have opinions.
Not sure I understand why it’s funny she has decided to have an opinion now.
🤷*♂️
Because I guess she consciously divested herself of all nuance at the time and now decided, ‘Oh, maybe that wasn’t so smart’.
