Now, good people of The Innanets, I’m an artist. And, as such, I am not only sensitive about my shit but I am sensitive about other folks’ shit. The good, the bad, the wtf . . . I try my best, no matter what, to give everyone room. Even when Kanye’s giving me naked emperor vibes. Despite my disdain for some folks’ singing voices, or vocals that don’t quite fit the song the way I’d personally like (see: “Still,” by Macy Gray), I will at least smile and nod. Everything isn’t for everyone.
This also applies to visual media. Paintings, photographs, sculpture, and tapestries all. Clothing, too, but y’all already know how I feel about the “different” styles, right? Right. But, my original point: I’m tryna reach an understanding about a painting I happened to see whilst trolling the web for pics of one James Ambrose Johnson, Jr. Now, I understand that everyone’s taste is not my taste. I understand that, as someone who doesn’t create visual art for anyone other than myself (I make collages that I will never share w/ the masses. Ever.), I might need to keep my mouth shut.
But, fuck that.
Cuz this shit right here is too much. Behold:
It’s called Mz. Thang and Rick James. The comment section is open for whatever the fuck you all wanna say about this.
I really just don’t get it.
