Bops For Marching The Wealthy To The Guillotines
We’ve seen enough performative bullshit come from wealthy celebrities in social isolation, so we put together a playlist to inspire protest.
The last few days on social media have been very… weird. Particularly with the overwhelming amount of wealthy celebrities who have come online to sing to us on their Instagram stories or on Twitter; who have stood on the balconies of their million-dollar homes to… clap(?????) in solidarity; who have asked their followers to donate to links where money is being raised to get hospitals the medical supplies needed to sustain their work in the midst of this pandemic.
Thankfully, many celebrities have also made bops that we can march to on our way to the guillotine (after giving them the option to redistribute their wealth, of course—word to Britney Spears).
Here is a “playlist” of some of my favorite songs to get hype to in preparation for a protest (many of which were recorded by artists who I have a deep love for).
