This Week: Chris Brown Is "Konfuzed," Ed Sheeran Fan Goes Nuts, and Charlie XCX Is Tamponless

Posted By on Fri, May 29, 2015 at 9:16 AM

Are you the local mom who tried to get Ed Sheeran to make out with your nine-year-old daughter? Or the Nicki Minaj fans who started a petition to take an award away from Iggy Azalea? Well, if so, your slightly insane behavior is terribly timed because even Chris Brown and A$AP Rocky are trying to be less brazen this week... Elsewhere in music, we're saying goodbye to Odd Future, bidding a sorrowful farewell to Charlie XCX tampons and watching Jenny Lewis make fun of her previous child-actor self. Here are the Quotes of the Week:

"There was a woman in San Francisco, she wanted me to be her daughter’s first kiss – and her daughter was nine… If a nine-year-old girl goes into school and goes, 'I got kissed by a 24-year-old yesterday,' police are being called, you know?"
Apparently, Ed Sheeran has some really big fans in our fine city… (Entertainment Weekly)

"I just want to clarify, this isn't me saying: People don't go listen to Rita Ora, or she's an ugly person, or nothing… I’m not saying she's a terrible person, I'm just saying that when I was in a relationship and I did things with her that I wasn't supposed to do, she had a big mouth."
A$AP Rocky tries to justify his degrading "Better Things" lyrics, about Rita Ora. (BBC Radio 1)

“It’s not an academic discussion; we're talking about a finite resource that's going away… Change is going to happen whether people are comfortable with it or not. And California, in a very realistic way, could run out of water — unless you take the 50 percent of California's water that's been used for alfalfa, beef, almonds, etc. and reallocate it.”
Moby is frustrated that this terrifying drought is not altering California's agricultural water allocations. (Rolling Stone)

"To everyone who signed the petition to retract Iggy’s Billboard Music Award, thank you first and foremost; however, a spokesperson for Dick Clark Productions, who produces the award show, has said that the award is still Iggy’s unfortunately. We got to nearly 20,000 signatures, which is freaking insane.”
Aren’t there other, more important things to start petitions about, Nicki Minaj fans? (Change.org)

“I love others more than myself at times. Everything u see on the surface does not reflect what's inside. This is my white flag. I surrender to life and all its blessings. I refuse to be petty and attention seeking. To know me is to love me. Good Bad UGLY! Sincerely, Konfuzed”
Nice try, Chris Brown… We still think you're a douche lord... (Instagram)

“although its no more, those 7 letters are forever."
Tyler, the Creator just suggested that OFWGKTA have split. (Twitter)

“iTunes is too much of a pain in the ass. I have an iTunes account, but I mean, Jesus, between the Cloud and the iTunes Match and ‘Did I buy this?' and ‘Did I not buy it?' and ‘Did I lose it?' and all that shit, it’s kind of annoying.”
The Pixies' Black Francis would much rather stream his music, thank you very much. (The Daily Beast)

"I really wanted to make tampon merch. That was a dream of mine for a really long time – to have tampons that say 'Sucker' on the side and 'Pussy Power' on the box. But it’s a health issue if someone’s going to put it in their vagina."
Figure it out, Charlie XCX! The world is sorely lacking vagina merch! (MTV)

"I think every band should have a girl in it, because it's always going to make for more cooler stuff going on than if it's just a bunch of guys. It's ultimately more romantic, no matter what. Even if nobody is getting together, it still casts a romantic spell."
Stevie Nicks has a point. Imagine Fleetwood Mac without her… (Mojo)

And finally, all hail Jenny Lewis for embracing her somewhat embarrassing history as a child actor (Lewis appeared in the likes of Baywatch, Golden Girls, Mr. Belvedere and Growing Pains) and having a laugh about it in the new video for "She's Not Me":

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
