celebrity, culture and radical politics in the heart of the american empire
Queer white cis woman. I post a more or less equal mix of radical/leftist politics, disability rights, general US celebrity culture and One Direction stuff here. I tag all my shit so if some but not all of those things interest you I think we can still be cool.
My ask box is always open. I might not always respond to every anon message but I do read everything. Call me out on my shit if I say something shitty. Send hugs or coffee or whatever if you just wanna talk. Big love.
Christ I didn’t realize that Eleanor actually tweeted the brand that she & Louis were so obviously promoting today to thank them for that train ride. I realize that this was actually related to Louis’s football club but I’d be surprised at all if various evil 1D enterprises weren’t involved somehow.
I am going to rub my temples to keep in a rant about how livid I am about how all this CONSTANT branding and advertising is going under the guise of Louis and Eleanor being the ~perfect couple~ that teenage girls should 100% emulate ps the best way to be them is to buy all the things they buy that will make you the happiest promise no takebacks.
EVEN INFOMERCIALS REQUIRE PAID SPOKESPEOPLE TO LABEL THEMSELVES AS SUCH.
Which, yeah is what happens all of the time with celebrity couples but not even Justin Beiber and Selena Gomez are THIS advertisement-driven.
This has GOT to be a sign the bubble is about to burst, right? It fucking reminds me of the shady-ass wholesale theft that happened right before the housing market took a swan dive.
Except that just led to a new round of wholesale theft and terribleness. Ugh. Fuck capitalism forever the end.
Whoops I guess I didn’t hold that rant in as well as I could have.
I am going go to get a sandwich.
