Okay, it’s official: we have absolutely no idea how this LOVE Magazine advent calendar works. Here we are in 2018 and the calendar is still going?! We thought advent calendars were countdowns to Christmas?
Charli XCX exists in that same space as Rita Ora: she an internationally known pop star, and yet, no one knows exactly why they know her. Can you name one, just ONE, song by Chari XCX? Didn’t think so. And yet, you have heard of her.
In fact, it reminds me of that scene from the original Pirates Of The Caribbean, when James Norrington says to Jack Sparrow something like “You have to be the worst pirate I’ve ever heard”, only for Captain Jack to respond, “But you have heard of me.”
So, essentially, Charli XCX is like the Captain Jack Sparrow of pop music: we’ve all heard of her, we just don’t know why.
