Also, Air + Style is returning to Los Angeles! The Thrilla in Vanilla!
Snowboarding has a patron saint and it is Snow White. Oh you know the classic story. A pale skinned girl (Shaun White) is chased into the woods by a vain an evil stepmother (Iouri Podladtchikov). There she is taken in by dwarves (Louis Vito) until her mother comes to her in the guise of an elderly woman (Terje) and tricks her into eating a magic apple (marijuana).
Snow White (Shaun White) falls into a sleep of the dead until a handsome prince (TMZ) kisses him awake. And the two live happily ever after.
But apparently also sexist. The pop star Alicia Keyes came out recently and said:
They say that every child learns from their mother — and it’s ingrained from babyhood. I get real funky about the classics; I don’t like [my sons] watching [the original Snow White]. It’s totally sexist, misogynistic — she’s cleaning for seven dwarfs.
There’s nothing wrong with a woman who chooses to stay at home with her family, it’s a hard-ass job, but it’s the way it’s spoken about.
And why? Because Shaun White is cleaning Louis Vito’s house?
Also, did you know Snow White’s Air + Style is returning to Los Angeles and headlined by Flume, Major Lazer and YG! It also features the world’s best snowboarders on a 16 ft jump. Can you wait? Will you go?
