Oh Lorde!

Lorde’s Valentino Dress at the Grammys 2018 | POPSUGAR Fashion

The recently held Grammy awards drew the typical collection of overprivileged and underwhelming ‘artists’ in order to once again celebrate themselves and bow down to the golden calf of their own making.

The hypocrisy on display this year reached new giddy heights as the ‘select few’ attended the annual trough of superficiality, adorned with white roses in order to ‘take a stand’ against sexual misconduct and show solidarity with the Times Up initiative.

The fact that both the music and movie making industries have long tolerated and been characterised by these unacceptable behaviours seems to be quietly forgotten as the ‘musicians’ continue to regurgitate the same unrelenting swill into the ears of our impressionable youths’ of pre-teen sexualisation and nihilism against anything standing for virtue, order, humility, emotional intelligence and good manners.

Perhaps the most baffling moment of the show came when our very own Lorde announced her presence, wearing a flowing red Valentino dress in which she had sewn a Jenny Holzer poem into the back of:

 

“RECOICE! OUR TIMES ARE INTOLERABLE.
TAKE COURAGE FOR THE WORST IS A
HARBINGER OF THE BEST. ONLY
DIRE CIRCUMSTANCE CAN PRECIPITATE
THE OVERTHROW OF THE OPPRESSORS. THE
OLD AND CORRUPT MUST BE LAID TO
WASTE BEFORE THE JUST CAN TRIUMPH.
OPPOSITION IDENTIFIES AND
ISOLATES THE ENEMY. CONFLICT
OF INTEREST MUST BE SEEN FOR
WHAT IT IS. DO NOT SUPPORT
PALLIATIVE GESTURES; THEY CONFUSE
THE PEOPLE AND DELAY THE INEVITABLE
CONFRONTATION. DELAY IS NOT
TOLERATED FOR IT JEOPARDIZES THE
WELL-BEING OF THE MAJORITY.
CONTRADICTION WILL BE HEIGHTENED
THE RECKONING WILL BE HASTENED BY
THE STAGING OF SEED DISTURBANCES.
THE APOCOLYPSE WILL BLOSSOM.”

 

I don’t believe I really need to bother going into the myriad of moral inconsistencies and lack of self-awareness these people demonstrate on a daily basis.

I’m quite sure that you, the reader, are more than capable of recognising the moral inconsistencies between what people say, and what they do.
