68 Notes

Look, people should be able to like whatever music they like. And I have no quarrel with Kitty Pryde whatsoever, beyond her co-opting the name of one of my favorite X-Men, and I have nothing to say one way or the other about her skills as a songwriter or rapper. 
My only thing is that this is a song where a guy is treating a girl with disrespect and the girl is singing about how she’s OK with it, and even likes it, and his jerkiness is feeding into her marriage fantasies about him. And for a YA author, one who I really like and admire and am inspired by, one who holds a position of power and influence over a certain demographic, to come out and say I LOVE THIS SONG, was kind of a boner killer for me. The end.
