Lorde’s ‘welcome home’ at Auckland airport this morning prompted these (perfectly reasonable) reactions and thoughts …
… which reminded me of Britney Spears’ song Piece of Me.
Is that what we want for our latest ‘teen singing sensation’?
Nope. Give her some space, huh?
Update: I see the NZ Herald has updated their article to reflect a new angle: ‘Lorde slams NZ media welcome as ‘sad’.
‘Slams’??? Good grief.
Yeah, that’s typical. ‘Sad’ is the right word for that.
Another thought: If you think the line “Extra, extra, this just in …” in Britney’s song is an exaggeration, look at how another ‘teen sensation’ is being virtually consumed by
idiots people in the media who should know better …
