  • Ariel Pink: pom pom

    pom pom is up there with Ariel Pink's very best work, even if there’s nothing as insanely hooky as “Round and Round".

    I’ve already mentioned in PopMatters that Ariel Marcus Rosenberg is a pretty weird dude, but, lately, he’s been taking his eccentricity to a whole other level. Where do we begin? Well, he came out earlier this year to announce that he was working on material for the new Madonna album, but he then noted that Madge has been on a “downward slide” since her debut record – and he was hired to fix that.

  • Beefs 2014: Ariel Pink Says Grimes Is "Stupid and Retarded"

These insults were hurled in an interview with The Guardian, in which Pink was asked about Grimes' angry response to his comment that Madonna had been on a "downward slide" since her first album. "What an amazing promotional campaign this is," he said about the...Read More
