Bono: "music has gotten very girly". Girly boys outraged!
Interview is good but long, but MSM focus on that one sentence. https://twitter.com/hashtag/bono
I think music has gotten very girly. And there are some good things about that, but hip-hop is the only place for young male anger at the moment – and that's not good. When I was 16, I had a lot of anger in me. You need to find a place for it and for guitars, whether it is with a drum machine – I don't care. The moment something becomes preserved, it is fucking over. You might as well put it in formaldehyde. In the end, what is rock & roll? Rage is at the heart of it.
Bono is (1) a man, and (2) has dedicated his life to the concept of rock & roll, so perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that he’s said some misguided things about gender and music in an interview with his good friend Jann Wenner of Rolling Stone. We expected better from the reigning Woman of the Year!
