It seems one can’t keep up these days with the insensitivities, wrong-doings, political correctnesses or lack thereof on the internet. My Facebook feed has started to feel like a real-time bell-ringing board, and every day seems like a proper education in “you can’t do that”!
Singer Sky Ferreira‘s statement regarding her latest video “I Blame Myself” appeared in my feed this morning, and Sky is ready to defend people who say she’s using “black people as props” to promote her music in her new video. Sky not only found those statements insulting personally, but also insulting towards the actors and dancers hired for her video who she says were hands-down the most talented during auditions.
Anyway, she gets into it more, “Would you feel more at ease if I danced with a bunch blonde white boys at a mall?” and you can read her statement in defence of the video after the jump! What are you thoughts on this whole new kaffufle?

I have to say — I’m really pleasantly surprised with the long-awaited release from NYC singer Sky Ferreira. Not only is it a full departure in genre from her previous pop-ier efforts that never really took, but the album holds up as a whole, and keeps well away from the auto-tuned and over-produced mess that has been ruling pop music as of late (though, I Blame Myself will satisfy pop fans just fine).
Have a listen to “Boys” — the opener track off Sky’s ‘s Night Time, My Time along with her first video release off the album, “You’re Not The One”, after the jump. The album is out now and available for purchase via iTunes.
