Not surprised, we all knew Ryan would return sooner rather than later. It’s unrealistic and silly to think that he won’t have a career. He’s a complete twat, but unless he’s charged with a crime all we can say is he’s a shitty manipulative dude. I don’t get the goal of the whole cancel culture thing. Consume his product or don’t based on your own beliefs and leave it at that.
The sins of boomer celebrities shouldn’t excuse Ryan or anybody else in the internet age (although I’m sure he would’ve relished the freedom/adulation of being famous in the 70s or whatever), but at the same time it’s pretty disingenuous to take some moral high ground with someone getting metoo’d right now but then pretend that older artists weren’t shitty to women as well.
Anyways, I got into Phoebe Bridgers first album after all Ryan’s transgressions and I’m much preferring that right now to his output. Her song about Ryan ("Motion Sickness) takes some great shots at him and I suppose that’s comforted me more than anything being said in the media.
