 Feminist Elizabethan | Gender Script is Flipped by Cosmo UK in Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo Interview                                                                                        

Anyone who pays any attention to celebrity interviews will have noticed that women are almost always asked only stupid, boring and sexist questions and this act of sexism was brought to the forefront in a recent interview by Cosmo UK.

Cosmo UK conducted an interview with Scarlett Johansson and Mark Ruffalo several days ago about their upcoming movie Avengers: Age of Ultron. Their interviewer decided to flip the gender script and asked Ruffalo all of the boring questions like, “What will you be wearing to the premiere,” and “Did you go on a diet,” and asked Johansson whether she did all of her own stunts and what she liked about playing Black Widow.

While it was very obvious that the questions that were asked of Ruffalo were stupid (and the stupidity of the questions were only amplified by the fact that a man was being asked these questions), what I found to be most powerful about the interview was that Johansson finally had a chance to speak her mind and answer interesting and relevant questions.

It wasn’t until I heard Johansson speaking about her character in this interview that I realized that I had never heard her speak about an interesting topic and this just served to remind me of all of the times that the world has missed out on hearing interesting opinions from actresses and how little girls have missed out on being (potentially) inspired by an actress.

Interviewers just really need to step up their game because their insistence on asking the same old uninspired sexist questions over and over isn’t doing anyone a favor. All it is accomplishing is boring viewers and interviewees, reinforcing sexism, depriving successful women an opportunity to express themselves and making themselves sound stupid. Just come on. We can do better.

Patrick Stump in the 2015 Soundwave Festival Guide

May 07 2015

The Strokes have given the NME an exclusive track-by-track guide to their third album ‘First Impressions of Earth’.

“It’s a little different,” warns guitarist Nick Valensi. “But I think people will still be able to tell it’s The Strokes – they just sound a little bit more mature.”

‘You Only Live Once‘ - Foot-stamping opener

Fab: “I remember Julian playing this on the pianoo and me thinking that it was fucking awesome! I felt like I knew this song already.”

‘Juicebox‘ – Ballsy, gonzo-rock-sized first single

Albert: “We heard the riff and it was like, ‘Dude, that’s it, let’s get in the studio!”
Julian: “No, when I first played that riff a lot of people thought I was joking.
Was it influenced by a cop show’s theme?
Julian: “No”
(Rest of band start singing cop tune themes.)  

‘Heart In A Cage‘ – A younger, edgy cousin of Iggy Pop’s ‘The Passenger’

Fab: “This song was going to be on the last record – ‘Private Dick’, it was once called – but it was too late. It was a blessing in disguise, really, because had it been recorded back then, I don’t think it would have worked out as well.”

‘Razorblade‘ - Sounds a bit like Barry Manilow’s ‘Mandy’ – remarkably, this is actually a good thing

Fab: “Razorblade was one of the first songs we sat down and played together. Oh, and it was the first trans-computer gigs we’ve ever done!”
Rest of band: “Er?”
Julian: “Trans-comp…? Oh, I emailed it to you…”

‘On The Other Side‘ - A slow, choppy ode to the spirit realm?

Fab: “I remember when Julian first played it for us he had a cold and he sounded like a fucking bullfrog. Like Johnny Cash one testosterone steroids!”

‘Vision of Division‘ – An angry sounding mix of throat-shredding vocals and bad-ass guitar lines

Fab: “I heard this over at Albert’s house and the guys played it for me and it was completely different.”
Julian: “No, that was ‘Ize of the World’. He’s getting it confused because sometimes our songs swap.”

‘Ask Me Anything‘ – The Strokes totally stripped, just synth-strings and Julian’s bare vocals

The lyrics are fairly morose. What kind of mood were you in when you wrote it, Julian?
Julian: “Suicidal! No, I’m usually in a fairly neutral mood when I’m writing. It just comes from other times and things sinking in, it’s very subconscious.
So who actually plays on the track then?
Fab: “Billy Joel. Yeah, we got him in to play the mellotron.” [It was actually Nick Valensi]

‘Electricityscape‘ - Big chorus, static-fried vocals and clipped guitars. A Strokes classic?

Albert: “I remember falling asleep when a few of you guys were working on this one.
Fab: “Ha! Yeah! Albert fell asleep face-down on his guitar!”

‘Killing Lies‘ - Rhythm-led pounder that oscillates between euphoria and introspection

Fab: ‘Killing Lies’ was first arranged and brought to life at the studio of the Dandy Warhols. They invited us to dinner, they’re great guys. Sorry, great guys and a girl.”

‘Fear of Sleep’ - Slow-building monster. Boasts some of Julian’s best lung-busting singing

Fab: “This was one of the most difficult songs on the record. To arrange, I mean. It just never seemed right at some points and then it did.”

‘15 Minutes’ – A badly behaved drinking anthem. Surprisingly reminiscent of Shane Macgowan

Nick: “We had two different ways to play it. A very Pogues-y version, and a punk-rock version. Then they became one and the same.”

‘Ize of the World‘ – A hip-swinging little tune which sees The Strokes take aim at modern alienation

What are the Ize Of The World?
Albert: “Isn’t it what every word ends with? Modernize, computerize…(Julian shakes head) Or am I wrong? I’m wrong.”
Julian: “Once you hear the lyrics to the song, it’s pretty clear what it means.”

‘Evening Sun‘ - Stoic yet determined, possibly the most ‘classic Strokes’ sounding song here

Fab: “Julian first did this and we found it on Gordon [Raphael, producer]‘s computer. We went up to Julian and said, ‘Why didn’t you play us this song?’. It’s become one of my favourites. Oh, and he and I both played the drums.”
Julian: “Oh, please don’t print that.”
Fab: “Are you going to deny that? If you listen to the end you hear that there are two drummers.”

‘Red Light‘ – A sprightly and dexterous closer

Julian: “OK, I have a story about this one, but I’m not sure I should tell it.”
Fab: “Dude, it’s the last one. Tell it or I will hit you!”
Julian: “All over my body? OK…somebody got me tickets for Mozart’s ‘Requiem’, I was just really stoned, so afterwards I thought it would be cool to write something inspired by opera. I went back, got this really strong melody together and there it was….’Red Light’!”
(The band applaud the story.)

kirstenlouisemcduffie:

my dad had a skype interview today so he was sitting in the living room looking all professional in his suit and tie and everything while he’s talking to the people who are interviewing him. and OF COURSE my cat decided that she NEEDED to speak at that moment so she just starts meowing left and right and talking crazy talk to the point where the interviewers just start laughing because she just will NOT shut up. so my dad just kind of sighs, looks at the camera, and goes, “i’m so sorry. i have to ask my cat to leave.” and then he looks over at victoria and very calmly and professionally goes, “victoria, i’m afraid you’re being too loud, and i’m going to have to ask you to leave.”

and she did. she fucking turned and walked out of the living room.
