We’re the drama class
I guess that explains a lot:
Have a flick through this week’s biggest stories, curated by Jess Leunig.
Over Christmas, I was very fortunate to go on an amazing trip to Kenya with my family and another family who lives in NYC. I have a younger brother who is twice my size and the American family had two boys, one who was my age and another who was twelve. All three boys went to posh all-boys private schools, and the American boys had little female influence given that they had no sisters. After spending very long journeys together while on safari, we were forced to get to know each other rather well. But after two weeks as the only girl, it had begun to put a negative strain on me.
Currently, Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift are two central artists in the pop-music sphere. Grande is at the pinnacle of her career, following the release of “thank u, next”, and Swift is in the inactive stage between album cycles after a whirlwind several years as one of the front runners in the pop industry. With both sharing enormity in their successes, it is natural to wonder if they also share the traits that made their music so relevant.
