It's like Lola from Charlie and Lola grew up and she's now at the age for texting and crushes and first dates.
Like "Never Ever Getting Back Together" with English vowel sounds and intonation.
Q about QT and her "divisive" label PC Music.
Since kitschadelic pop already exists in the world, abundantly, what does simulation-kitsch actually add by way of surplus value? A layer of reflexivity, studied inauthenticity, of meta-manufacturedness? But the faux-real already exists, with Taylor Swift and other TeenNick Top 10 fare? Can K-pop, so denatured it's practically animation, be surpassed on this front?
This is the same question I have with vaporwave, with James Ferraro's takes on rap / R&B, and so forth.
The Jeff Koons question.
