The most powerful man in comic book movies has spoken!

And he had some very passionate things to say!

An interview with Avengers director Joss Whedon recently came out and in it the director talked openly about the lack of female superheroes in movies and how that should be changed!

The interview took place before the announcement of the film Wonder Woman, however, that's just ONE female superhero movie compared to what seems like hundreds of male superhero ones!

Lupe Fiasco Laments Further About Music Industry

Filed under: Music MinuteUsherSad SadJustin Bieber

lupe fiasco laments about music industry

Earlier this week, Lupe Fiasco went on the record and talked negatively about his new album and the music industry, without seeming to care AT ALL about how his record label might react.

In what appears to be another moment of despair, Lupe has opened up further about his lack of enthusiasm for the music industry, despite the fact that his new album was JUST released.

Here's what he had to lament say about the music industry:

"To be blunt, I don't really give a [crap]. I've grown very distant from the business, very numb to it…I don't really care about the success anymore. I don't really care about the fame. Three, four years later, I look at my bank account statements, and I haven't made any money with my record label. You start to think a little bit differently about your motivations and why you're doing what you're doing."

More from Lupe on the music industry's lack of creativity:

"I’m guilty of it, too. Hip-hop today — talking solely about the commercial space — it’s the same producers, sound, over and over again. The artist with that particularly poppy song is given the first look as opposed to that ethereal, weird artist with the brand-new music."

"The person who wins Best New Artist is this really abstract left bass player, [b]ecause it’s about who’s making music, who’s making something different. Justin Bieber sounds just like everybody else, to be honest. He’s the homie; he’s dope. But he’s no different than Sean Kingston, Usher."

We certainly agree that creativity is important, and we're sure there's room for improvement, but we don't think complaining like this is the most productive way to address the issue.

…Plus, you're certainly not making any new friends in the industry by speaking like this, Lupe.

Just sayin'!

Thoughts???
