So Jeff Bezos is really pushing on the Prime Day stuff. I was minding my own business celebrating 7/10 (stoner holiday), when I got a Twitter notification. Clicked on to see Taylor Swift’s performance, then stayed to watch the rerun of the rest.
Overall it was a great performance. Everyone did great – SZA, Dua Lipa, Becky G, and Swift, who’s an artist I’m going to focus more on in a full article later. She joins Lil Wayne and Tech N9ne as the most important artists of our generation. They’re continuing a fight waged by the likes of Ray Charles, John Fogerty, and Prince.
The low point was definitely the complete disrespect the audience members in the venue were toward Becky G, whose Spanish-language lyrics and Latin style apparently didn’t impress any of the blonde white chicks who couldn’t even sing along to the lyrics “ooohhh.”
Here are a few pics from the concert, and for now I have only one thought beyond congratulating all these women on a stellar performance – if Amazon can afford these women, how much am I overpaying for Amazon?
