Seems like you can't enjoy anything these days without someone heavily involved trying to groom fans.

Yep. Just 3-4 days ago one of my favorite producers (who has had a questionable history with women in the past) had a slew of allegations come forth again, this time both more credible and more serious. These allegations also come from a tour with a DJ who was destroyed a few years ago for drugging and raping multiple women.

I wonder if getting rid of "celebrity culture" might go a long way towards fixing this problem, or if even without all that shit going to their heads most would still abuse their positions to exploit people. In Space Jesus's case, I know he has a pretty long history of drug abuse which I know doesn't help, but I feel like a lot of these abusers don't even have that "excuse".

Fame and money often amplify people's vices, including coercing people to have sex.

I can't handle Final Space. It feels like OK... then it doesn't happen.

The reporter probably thought he would say something mundane like buy a house or something.

Why, Butch? Why? I thought you were cool. Turns out, you're a piece of shit.
