LOVE SYMBOL

By GABRIELA JIMÉNEZ

Somewhere in interstellar space a supernova formed the Love Symbol

The year was 1982 and Prince was exploding into the realms of American popular culture. Ten years later, he’d go on to adopt the unpronounceable mark as only proper visual moniker for The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, but the symbol was born in 1982, on the album cover for 1999.

There, in a collage that scintillated with the Love Symbol’s formative phases, Minnesota’s Purple Yoda imaged a manifesto against social prototypes.

Deep within a starry, violaceous space, the words Prince and 1999 dominate the album cover’s vast expanse. Presumably it was Prince himself who drew its letters and numbers, along with other non-representational shapes, symbols, and scenes.

In doing so, the Purple One reflected on his previous body of work to propel rebellion across light-years.

In the same P where a mane suggests Prince’s masculinity, the Love Symbol began its genesis, making its first appearance with its first configuration. The widely used emblems for peace (☮), femininity (♀) and masculinity (♂) emanate separately from a sun. After traveling through the letters spelling Prince, the three icons return as one, O (+>, following the phallic 1 at the bottom of the 9, as if the product of ejaculation.

The melding of the three convolutes gender by implying that multiple can exist in one entity—simultaneously and without much turbulence.

In that way, the Love Symbol cruise-controls on sexual ambiguity. 1999’s cover shares paradigm-altering eccentricities with artists from a former time and space.

HALSEY COVERS BIEBER

(Is she a “bad girl” as Bieber is a “bad boy”?

I’ve posted Justin Bieber’s song “Love Yourself” the last 3 nights.

Promise this is the last one … (unless a better on comes along).

Initially it was Beiber’s version, then Karen Rodríquez Spanish version and, tonight, this one.

WARNING: CURSING!

Ever since I heard that song, my mind took me to this same spot when Halsey has gone.

I’m not aware of Bieber’s business because I’m really not his fan.

However, my oldest grand-daughter, Angelika, likes his new CD album.

We talked about this song and I explained to her what I thought Beiber really meant.

With that in mind, if you want, venture out and listen to this version.

Ashley Nicolette Frangipane (born September 29, 1994), known by her stage name Halsey,  is an American singer and songwriter. She started songwriting at the age of 17. In 2014, she signed her first recording contract with Astralwerks and released her debut EP, titled Room 93. Her debut studio album, Badlands, was released in 2015.

Halsey was born and raised in New Jersey as Ashley Frangipane.

She is of Italian, Hungarian, and Irish descent on her mother’s side and African American on her father’s side. Growing up, Halsey played the violin, viola, and cello until moving onto the acoustic guitar when she was 14.

In one of her first interviews, Halsey stated she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder around the age of 16 or 17. When she was 18, Halsey encountered financial trouble and music became a way to pay her rent. She played numerous acoustic shows in different cities under various stage names.

She chose “Halsey” as her moniker because it is an anagram of her real name as well as a street in Brooklyn where she spent a lot of time as a teenager.

Halsey Covered “Love Yourself,” Swapped “Love” for the Word Bieber Actually Meant

By Laura Bradley

Don’t be deceived by the seemingly sweet and affirming title of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself”: the “love” has a very clear, not-so-sweet double entendre.

Now Halsey, the artist who lent her vocal talents on another Purpose track, “The Feeling,” has covered the song, with a few virtuosic flourishes.

Most notably, her chorus is a little more direct:

She went with “Fuck yourself.”

The cover has a gentle, smoky timbre, which makes the lyric change stand out even more. Halsey’s lyrics generally tend to be graphic and direct. And for those of us who have always thought “love yourself” sounds like a lame radio edit of what Bieber probably meant to say, this amendment was long overdue.
