Miranda Lambert’s recent accusation of sexism in country music pretty much sums up why modern feminist ideology is so flawed. Somehow, because she wasn’t able to snag a number one hit on her own, men are to blame. Instead of actually making better music, or encouraging those honky-tonk hoedown hussies to come out and support you, just attack the entire music genre and anyone with a fancy cowboy hat and penis. It’s easier.
Miranda Lambert has some frank words for the country music community when it comes to female artists’ representation.
This week, The Washington Post published an interview with Lambert in which she talked about her most recent No. 1 hit, the Jason Aldean duet "Drowns the Whiskey.",” which they’ll perform on Wednesday’s CMA Awards.
“Yes, I had to sing with someone with a penis to get a No. 1,” Lambert, 35, said.
“I do like this person, Jason Aldean, a lot … so it was a great song with an old friend,” Lambert added. “It is interesting that I haven’t had even a Top 20 in a long, long time. And then it goes No. 1 because it’s a dude. But you know — if we went and looked at how many singles or records were sold for the Top 10 songs right now, I’d probably triple it on record sales. So it doesn’t matter.”
Stars are so self-absorbed it’s almost sad to watch. Music is an ever-changing landscape. If you’re having trouble hitting your goal of number one, switch genres and chase the current K-Pop trend. A Miranda Lambert and BTS crossover will either get her the experimental chart topper her love muffin throbs for, or laughed out of the United States. Isn’t the overall motif of country music to quit yer’ complainin’ and there’s no problem too tall that a couple shots of whisky won’t solve. Call Chris Stapleton and quit the belly aching. This woman has obviously lost her way. She needs to look for her next hit at the bottom of a Jack Daniel’s bottle like every other great country musician before her.
