If the childhood of America’s biggest pop star isn’t safe, no one’s is.
A better question: why are adults sitting in pious judgement of stupid but ultimately harmless stuff once said by kids? If someone like Eilish isn’t being a hater nowadays (she’s all of 19), what is accomplished with show-trial apologies for stuff from when she was having acne and sleepovers?
It’s the weirdest (and this is really saying something) of many weird rituals in our Brave New World.
