John Maus Shares the Beef on Ariel Pink in Twitter Manifesto, Calls Out the 'Misogynist' as a 'Nymphonmaniac'

John Maus Shares Beef on Ariel Pink in Twitter Manifesto, Calls Out 'Misogynist' as 'Nymphomaniac' >>

If Twitter were a publisher, then John Maus's latest post may be a legitimate manifesto against the mop-top mermaid Ariel Pink. Is he a misogynist or just a nymphomaniac? Well, Maus has some words on the topic. Pink, admittedly, hasn't come off as the most woman-loving artist on the scene, what with his recent jabs at Madonna and other women in the industry. But, Maus is not stabbing his outward facade — he is taking it to a more personal level. Maybe it lies in his lyrics, but Maus claims Pink's entire identity relies on theories of castration and wanting to "become-woman." Get in line, I am sure there is an entire culture behind hating Ariel and what he stands for.

Ariel Pink Says Madonna on 'Downward Slide' When Asked to Write on Upcoming Album, Grimes Weighs In >>

Give the guy some love. Ariel Pink, while maybe not your daily dose of cliché pop, has carved a name for himself — and that means something. But according to Madonna and her camp, Pink is an unknown misogynist who will not be contributing to Madonna's upcoming record, of which he was asked to help write on. Perhaps Pink should have exercised more tact in this situation, saying that since Madonna's first LP, Ray of Light, her career has been on a "downward slide." While that could potentially be true, it is not good to slam the boss when they want you on a project. Songstress Grimes also weighed in.
