    Chappell Roan reveals she turned down offer to perform at the White House for Pride:

    “In response to the White House who asked me to perform for Pride: we want liberty, justice and freedom for all. When you do that, that’s when I’ll come.”

    Is she a plant? She appeared too quick.

    I never trust these types, they’re clearly tied to the industry somehow.

      She was very niche, then she was the opener on Olivia Rodrigo’s Guts tour starting in February (they have the same Producer). If you look her up on Google Trends, that’s when interest really took off and she started being seen everywhere, as well as continuing her own tour (she had been touring in the fall beforehand).

      Her full album was out nearly six months before the Guts tour, her old label dropped her after the Pink Pony Club single. I think she just got in a good position, and has a great, fun sound that people like.

      Talented people appear quickly in the age of the internet, you don’t have to bring up conspiracies
      (especially when said conspiracy is already disproportionately used against women)

      Plus she’s been around since 2015

        She’s Gen Z, they REALLY don’t like Biden

        That’s just not true. While his polling has taken a hit among Gen Z, he still has solid support from about a third of Gen Z, with another third being solidly for Trump, and another third being divided between the various third party candidates.

          1/3rd support, so my statement is true

          Edit: that poll also includes millennials so it’s even worse with Gen Z

            1/3rd is standard fare.

            You should take a look at how close elections can be, how many people don’t actually vote, and how many votes are cast to various 3rd party candidates that will never win.
