Re: “Just a reminder: Not everyone is a Saints fan

Hey, Pistolette — I haven't invested too much thought into Magary's post (you're correct that it's Gawker Media's schtick), but as a woman I don't think it's appropriate to associate "personally charged bitch-fests" with being feminine. Being hateful, racist, snarky, ignorant or whatever is not exclusive to gender.

Re: “Wendell Pierce sounds off on recent shootings

Hey, Wendell — Thanks for responding to the blog. I am sorry if you feel I mischaracterized your commentary. While I did not include all of your tweets, the tweets I mentioned appear verbatim — they are not edited. Perhaps I should have done a better job of summarizing your commentary. And although you did not explicitly mention race, you did retweet two tweets mentioning it (here:!/NefariousNewt/statu… and here:!/whereishawkins/stat…). I wasn't trying to "sensationalize" the blog by including the race aspect.

Also, I did include a link to your Twitter account so people could see your commentary in its entirely.

Again, I'm sorry if I mischaracterized your commentary and I really do appreciate you reading/commenting on the blog.

-Lauren LaBorde

Re: “Katy Perry: a retrospective

Hey, 504native. I suppose it was a bit mean sprited, but I don't think "this town really doesn't get many big acts any more" is a compelling pro-Katy Perry argument. I'm mean because I love pop music, and I think it's sad that insanely talented pop singers like Janelle Monae and Robyn (who opened for Perry on the first leg of her tour) are opening for Perry and not the other way around. Perry is not a talented live performer — her mediocre vocal ability is mostly obscured by costume changes and Willy Wonka set pieces — and the messages of her songs are inconsistent (especially with LGBT stuff) and often offensive.

And jojosev, I disagree that pop "is a genre not of deep musicality." As I mentioned earlier, Monae and Robyn are both examples of talented pop singers, and of course Lady Gaga — whose theatrics are on par with her singing, dancing and songwriting abilities — is another example.

Re: “Upcoming reality shows to feature New Orleans brides, bounty hunters

@outsidelookingin That already happened, except it was called "The Real World: New Orleans."
