Great white nope case file #45: Kreayshawn’s Somethin’ ‘Bout Kreay · My World Of Flops · The A.V. Club
"In hindsight, it’s a little odd that a Kreayshawn album exists at all. She’s a consummate YouTube phenomenon, and there is a huge gulf between the level of commitment required to press a button and watch a music video for free and the level required to spend actual money on an artist’s album. There were lots of folks willing to press a button to watch 'Gucci Gucci' on YouTube—and almost none willing to actually buy her album."

Textual Relations: The Young-Girl and the Selfie
"...we spend inordinate amount of money on emphasizing the important of beauty, the importance of fashion, the importance of youthfulness and desirability and individuality. If the best way of making your womanhood legible is to adorn your body in a particular way — whether femme or punk rock or teeny bopper or whatever — then there is an injunction to perform that work. Women who do not do that work, particularly teenage girls who ‘opt out’ as it were, face social repercussions far more meaningful than some 40-year-old dude calling them narcissists. We elevate the work women do on their bodies to the utmost importance, and then punish the outcome of that labour."

"The selfie, in the end is about the gendered labour of young girls under capitalism. Do we honestly think that by ceasing to take and post selfies, the bodies of young women would cease to be spectacles? Teenage girls are Young-Girls, are spectacles, are narcissists, are consumers because those are the very criterion which must be met to be a young woman and also a part of society."

Cultural Literacy for Old People - The Morning News
"Are they visual artists? Cultural critics? Their main talent seems to be an ability to stand in front of a mirror holding a phone. If they have gained this many followers for doing so little, what do their futures hold? The safest bet is to fear them."

Los Angeles Review of Books - Judy Blume: Three Essays
"In Blume’s writing is evidence of an immensely talented listener. In her hands, Margaret’s voice is so authentic that it’s practically inaudible. “Our new car is a Chevy. It’s green,” is the unassumingly note-perfect conclusion to one paragraph. “She had a big behind. Also, she wore a hat” isn’t played out as a body-parts joke; it’s simply what Margaret sees. Blume employs no tricks: no pointedly botched grammar, punctuational explosions, or would-be comically incongruous “adult” observations ripped from the pages of a Disney Channel teleplay. “The booklet recommended that we use Private Lady sanitary supplies. It was like one big commercial. I made a mental note never to buy Private Lady things when and if I ever needed them.” Blume may be editorializing here, but because we know Margaret so well by now, the comment seems incontestably Margaret’s own."
