I was told rock and roll meant playing an instrument and not relying on a beat machine…..
-cough cough- A certain artist…
And yes I will tag this because a tag doesn’t mean you have to love them. I’m actually very pleased with the fact ever since I spoke my mind about her, people are actually noticing what she really is.
Rock N Roll is a lifestyle. But when she said she is still trying to do ‘industrial’ please tell me how Naughty Naughty and This is what rock n roll looks like even sounds like industrial? Industrial sounds like NINE INCH NAILS. Do I even hear any NIN in any of her newer stuff? Not at all.
I also will like to point out that she is bullshitting all the fans because she has a COPY of her album. She played it on radio Bam, if you really want proof literally just youtube it. She got shit on by one of Bam’s friends because they told her she doesn’t sound like rock n roll.
She says she is a mixture of Marilyn Manson? Oh please, Marilyn Manson writes songs about girls like Porcelain who are clearly fake and care about looks way too much.
All the people that say she does, half of you don’t even listen to rock or heard of REAL rock. The Beatles/The Rolling Stones/Elvis and all these amazing artists brought ROCK N ROLL and I don’t think they would like the fact that someone is claiming they are rock n roll when they use excessive auto tune and NO INSTRUMENTS. Yes, bands these days do use auto tune on their records but at least they can play their stuff live. Again, look up all of Porcelain’s so called ‘live’ videos. She uses back tracks in all of her performances.
Call me out, inbox me as much as you want. Fans are clearly blind if they continue to call this woman rock n roll. I know what it’s like to defend an artist. I use to do it for Porcelain. I’m telling you now, she will NOT make it in the music business for very long. Maybe she will have one good song when her album..OR IF her album ever comes out. But she will flop because of how she acts and thinks she is better than everyone else.
When rock n roll first began, it was about the spirit of the thing more than the actual sound. Keep that in mind. People have fought over what rock n roll is or isn’t for years and more and more people are fed the idea of “poseurs” or ”fakes” and they buy into it. That’s incredibly petty. Like what you like. Don’t listen to what you don’t like.
You mention the Beatles, NIN, The Rolling Stones, Elvis, and Marilyn Manson, seemingly to point we fools who enjoy Porcelain Black to “real” rock n roll. This just proves that what you’re saying is absurd. These groups don’t sound alike. The closest similarities could be found between Manson and NIN, but even then, it would depend on the album or the song, and the similarities mean very little. Even if all of these artists had a similar wave of sound that defined them as truly being rock n roll, then you have to admit that rock n roll is a sound that can be packaged, which is to say it is commercial, which would ruin your special snowflake sense of entitlement.
You claim to be the end all and be all of knowledge on what industrial music sounds like, and yet, the two industrial artists you mention are the pop-iest and most mainstream of the genre. I wouldn’t ordinarily fault you for that (I love both of those artists, with the exclusion on MM’s last few albums), but your sense of superiority is laughable.
Porcelain has always stated that she wanted to do Industrial Pop. She wants to create a genre and god bless her. I love it. As someone who has always been a fan of pop and of metal and of classic rock, I’m pleased to see an artist who is willing to love it all and not ascribe herself to one set of scene rules.
And explain to me how Porcelain caring about her looks is relevant to this? There is no one on earth who doesn’t. If you say you don’t, you are lying. It is part of being human. As someone who can claim vanity as one of their biggest flaws, I extend to you a Fuck You most sincere. Also, she is a woman, not a girl. She is a grown ass woman. Take your internalized misogynistic rhetoric somewhere else.
I’m sure she has access to her music, but when you sign to a label there are rules and regulations about what you can and cannot do with it and releasing an album on your own is incredibly expensive without having to go through legal shenanigans releasing you from a label to do it. Be empathic. Be realistic.
I’ve watched the CKY videos and Jackass and all related entities since their inception. I love everyone involved as if they were my own family, but at absolutely no point in my life will I consider someone being friends with Bam Margera (who is near and dear to my heart) a thing that validates their opinion.
Get over yourself. Grow up. Don’t tag your hate. When you have a well thought out criticism or find something about Porcelain Black or her music that is actually harmful to the masses, tag away.
I found a wormhole to 1991 in my garage.
This is the strongest wine and there was no label. Oh my. I love tinychat. It is the best tool ever in my life. I LOVE PEOPLE OKAY? Some of them. A lot. A disgusting amount.
