She’s not “Latina”.

She's also WAY better than Selena Gomez.

even if she was latina, this is a really weird thing to say. Would you say "Billy Joel is a better white singer/piano player than Elton John"? "Adele is a better white pop singer than Lady Gaga"?

While I don't necessarily want to group my opinions in the same basket at Jeff's, but under certain circumstances (like the Unpopular Music Opinion Thread), I might.

The point is would you use their ethnicity to identify them? (the second point would be would you use the wrong ethnicity to identify them)

"As far as straight white pianists go, Billy Joel beats Elton John by a mile"

As far as straight white pianists go, it's no contest.

True, and maybe that's what Jeff was actually trying to say, because it is technically true:

doubling down on the weirdness. These are people, not breeds of dogs, FFS.

We're all "mixed". And FWIW, Selena Gomez's mom is of italian descent (per wiki).

I just randomly listened to five Selena Gomez songs on Qobuz, can anyone recommend one that doesn't have her voice autotuned into oblivion?

Ok so you accuse me of being a racist and take something I said out of context?

I have more Public Enemy records than you and I was watching Yo MTV Raps in the late 80's and early 90's before rap became mainstream and commercial while you were listening to New Kids on the Block.

Oh, so you like "black" music so you're not racist? Do you have a black friend too?

FWIW, I never accused you of anything other than being weird. And I didn't take anything you said "out of context", I literally quoted your entire posts in both of my responses to you.

And I was a hippie, I was listening to the Grateful Dead, thank you very much. But FYI, rap was pretty mainstream and commercial before the late 80s and early 90s.

Just wanted to point out that a couple years ago I said Ms Rodrigo was a "flash in the pan", and aside from her nearly flashing the audience last night, it appears I couldn't have been more wrong about her staying power.

I'm sorry sir, you appear to have come to the wrong internet. In this internet, nobody admits they were wrong.
