Fuck This World (Interlude)
(Rina Sawayama)


(2020)

STFU!


STFU! (Shut the fuck up! cioè chiudi il becco, chiudi quella cazzo di bocca) è il potente singolo di Rina Sawayama con sonorità nu-metal che si discostano dal sound pop di molte altre sue canzoni. E' dedicata a tutti gli stereotipi che Rina deve sopportare in quanto donna di origine giapponese in Gran Bretagna. Stereotipi solo apparentemente innocui, commenti dettati dall'ignoranza totale della cultura di origine mediata solo dai film occidentali tipo Kill Bill, l'aspettativa che la ragazza giapponese debba rispondere all'immagine della "Asian" nelle categorie di YouPorn.

Nel video l'attore Ben Ashenden impersona perfettamente l'esempio del ragazzo occidentale che al primo appuntamento spara una serie impressionante di frasi fuori luogo, riesce a risultare talmente insopportabile che la risposta della protagonista è un momento assolutamente catartico!
BEN ASHENDEN: So you're a singer. Yeah, no, I looked you up. I was, like, oh. I didn't realize - I was quite surprised you sang in English.

SAWAYAMA: Well, I grew up here, so...

ASHENDEN: Oh, love these. So authentic. You can't find good Japanese food outside Japan. But you can here. Have you been to that Japanese place.. eeerrr... Wammagamma's?

SAWAYAMA: I mean

ASHENDEN: It's the one in Heathrow. It's amazing

SAWAYAMA: Is it any different to the ones...

ASHENDEN: Well... Yeah yeah... 'Cause I think they hire more Asians there so it feels like the real deal

ASHENDEN: You know what? I'm currently writing, like, a fan fiction piece but from the perspective of, like, a little Japanese woman. So it's kind of like a new-age "Memoirs Of A Geisha" - just kind of cool but with more action. I mean, I'm obviously indebted culturally to "Kill Bill." No. 1...

SAWAYAMA: Yeah

ASHENDEN: Lucy Lu

SAWAYAMA: Yeah, yeah I love...

ASHENDEN: Yeah, she's so... Have you seen Grey's Anatomy?. The one in Grey's Anatomy as well. You remind me of her.

SAWAYAMA: Sandra Oh...

ASHENDEN: Uh?

SAWAYAMA: What, Sandra Oh or Lucy Lu?

ASHENDEN: Oh, literally either. But... you're like a sexier version.

Kee-Yah

Sorry... um...

Let me get it... that's alright. I got it.

Kee-Yah

A little Kamikaze mission.

So are you uh... like... you're... you're mixed. 'Cause you don't look like... you know, like Japa-Japanese.


Let's go
I want to know, I want to know, yeah
I want to know, I want to know, yeah
I want to know, I want to know, yeah
I want to know, I want to know

Silence finally in my head
But it's too late, you already left
You're preaching even though I'm dead
Like the first time, I'm in my prime

How come you don't expect me
To get mad when I'm angry?
You've never seen it done
I know I'm not the only one (Uh)
How come you don't respect me?
Expecting fantasies to be my reality
Why don't you just sit down and

Shut the fuck up, shut the fuck up (You)
Shut the fuck up, shut the fuck up (Uh huh, shh)
Shut the fuck up, shut the fuck up (You, I see you)
Shut the fuck up (Uh huh, shh)
Have you ever thought about taping your big mouth shut?
'Cause I have, many times, many times

I want to know, I want to know, yeah
I want to know, I want to know, yeah
I want to know, I want to know, yeah
I want to know, I want to know

Patience, overrated
If you want it, come and get it (Come and get it)
That feeling, eating at my chest
Rips me open (Rips me open), rips me open (Rips me open)

Not never naturally negative, no
I don't wanna be that girl again 'cause
I've been done and been through more friends
Than I can count on my fingertips

How come you don't detest me?
I am your medicine, and your reality
Why don't you just sit down and

Shut the fuck up, shut the fuck up (You)
Shut the fuck up, shut the fuck up (Uh huh, shh)
Shut the fuck up, shut the fuck up (You, I see you)
Shut the fuck up (Shh)
Have you ever thought about taping your big mouth shut?
'Cause I have, many times, many times
Have you ever thought about taping your big mouth shut?
'Cause I have, many times, many times

Like the first time (Like the first time)
Like the first time (Like the first time, yeah)
Like the first time (Like the first time, uh)
Like the first time (Like the first time, yeah)
Like the first time (Like the first time)
Like the first time (Like the first time, yeah)
Like the first time (Like the first time)
(Like the first time)

Yeah
Like the first time, it's
Like the first time, it's
Like the first time, it's
Like the first time is
