5 ft. 2 and full of it.

Like it or not. Artists don’t necessarily realize that and some choose not to look at it that way. Some are naive. But escapist music is very political in upholding the status quo. That culture shapes the social landscape and makes certain things are okay.

So in that sense all music is political.”
