Tiktok believes the band Tramp Stamps are an industry plant, but are they? Let's discuss this theory, their song I'd rather die, and their response to it all.

I don't care cause they suck. Weeknd was a plant and look how godlike his whole his whole career was. Trampstamps music sucks and it's not funny either.

To the people comparing this group to t.A.T.u.: That's an unfair comparison. For one, t.A.T.u.'s music is actually good. But more importantly, the gіrls from t.A.T.u. were the viсtims of emotional and sеxuаl аbusе by their manager, Ivan Shapovalov, starting from when they were 14. That disgusting monster was a former сhild psychologist who fеtishizеd tееnаgе lеsbiаns, and it was him who made the gіrls out to be lеsbiаns when they really only supported lеsbiаns. Shapovalov criticized Lena Katina (the red-haired gіrl) about her weight, despite her not being overweight, and made her starve herself. This lead to her fainting after a concert, and later having to get her gallbladder removed. He also forced Yulia Volkova (the dark-haired gіrl) to scream because she couldn't naturally match Lena's vocal range, leading to permanent damage. And as if all this wasn't terrible enough, the t.A.T.u. gіrls were not his only viсtims. He also аbused several other yоung gіrls and bоуs, and do to his history as a сhild psychologist, there's no telling how many viсtims there are who haven't come forward. So don't compare t.A.T.u. to the industry plants in this video.

The way I found out that the shrimp stems or even a thing was that black TickTock was talking about the racist tweets and I was like who are these girls I tend to know punk chick fans I don’t know them who are they and then I just couldn’t bother to care enough to follow up.

they also caused a bit of a splash on tumblr, they were ran off the site in I think a day or two?

I have never heard of this group, but I don’t get the “really professionally done”‘criticism. I created a website on wix for free for a class a few semesters ago and it was amazing, very “professional” looking.

What does it say about a person's idea of feminism when one of the first examples they give of something they don't like about men is them being bad in bed or not being able to get an erection? That's what grinds your gears? Not men pushing boundaries or not respecting consent? Not being harassed by men? Not being talked down to? It just screams of a misogynistic record label trying to cash in on mainstream feminism while also trying to avoid topics they perceive as being controversial.
MC Day ago
Also, like, there's only so much mileage you can get out of singing about bad relationships. How many memes are there about basement bands having no material other than "I hate my ex?" It was boring and repetitive when men were doing it, and it's still boring and repetitive when three career music industry millennial white women do it while trying to genz-ify themselves.
Connie Stephens
It's so weird for me to hear this talked about as a tiktok thing because it feels at least to me SO tumbr. They literally claim to be "Tumblr girls" but Tumblr culture at this point has devolved to be so fucking weird and uninhabitable to outsiders that they were bullied off of it in five hours with bug ass and the John Green cock monologue and carefully crafted messages tricking them into basically saying they were terfs and pro-map. I literally cannot stress enough that they lasted literally FIVE HOURS

Why are we criticising women for their connection to abusers, rather than going after the abuser? If Dr. Luke is prominent in the industry and a woman needs to further her career, why are we still blaming her for his actions? 🙄🙄🙄
Circe Day ago
Everything about them is just... so... dated. That isn't an ageist dig, I'm an older millennial myself. But their sound and aesthetic is that kind of pop punk we all made fun of in the goth and punk scenes of the early 2000s. Maybe they're betting on everything coming back around in 20 year cycles and somehow being cool for nostalgia's sake? I don't know. I'm so confused by the whole thing. They don't seem to be trying to appeal to gen z, they seem to be trying to appeal to girls who worried about perfecting their AIM away message or getting a skinny tie from Hot Topic before the mall closed.

I wouldn't care if they were industry plants if they were good people/had good music, but unfortunately they are shite 💀 edit: they're so CONFIDENT, and I'm confused??? like I think their ultimate downfall is their absolute out of touchness. they put themselves into a position to be authentic, and it turns out that they're just crappy people. if they'd been put together as a pop band, they might have actually flown under the radar because people don't expect pop artists to be earnest in the same way. they might have just been another industry plant pop band, and I think that's fascinating in itself

Tumblr flexed on TikTok by beating their "Bullying the Tramp Stamps off the Platform any %" speedrun. TikTok needed a week. Tumblr needed 5 hours & bug ass Also, they claim to be "Tumblr girls" in the first line of a song, but someone told them "I like your shoelaces" & they said "thanks😍😁😁"

One of their songs, "sex with me," popped up in my spotify suggestions, and I honestly thought it was funny and kind of liked it. Idk, it sounded kind of ironic to me on a first listen. But then again, I don't spend a lot of time on tik tok, I really only watch the ones that are sent to me and I only follow a few people, so I had heard nothing about them at all. Learning a little more about them makes me feel a little insulted. Like, come on, Spotify, you should know me better by now, we've been through so much, lol. Their music also has a very... early 2000s feel to it so I didn't even realize it was a new song. I thought it was something I had missed from like 20 years ago, which I think says a lot about their whole vibe.

Honestly I think its ridiculous that people are going after these women bullying them off the internet and all their social media's because people don't like their music. Lets be real. There's a lot of "industry plants", but people have collectively decided to just hate these women for no reason other than they don't like their music and the women are around 30 years old. Its just internalised misogyny at its finest. You guys could have ignored them but instead decide to ruin their lives for having the audacity to try and be famous. Honestly this is the stupidest shit I've ever heard of. People saying "we hate them because they are fake punks" or "they say they're tumblr girls but deleted their tumblrs after I sent them death threats, what phonies" is ridiculous. Grow the fuck up and take a long look in the mirror and decide when and why you lot became so pathetic that you would bully women over the internet, accuse them of racism, homophobia for the most minor offence just because you don't like their music and don't think they are "authentic" enough for you. It is so immature and absolutely insane.

...ok wtf like I know this isn't my type of music I would actively go out to listen to but yikes on a bike. Also from everything I've watched of this group, especially that interview, the one thing I've noticed is that the pink hair and blue hair girls need to become a duo and go off and make music that really want to make because they seem to be much more chill and down to earth, and like they actually know each other.

Kinda feel sorry for Caro, she could potentially have had a decent solo career, but may have fucked herself by getting involved with Tramp Stamps.

In my headcanon, these three aren't plants, but just naturally extremely tone deaf and treat everything in life with the same fabricated, structured, completely off reactions they do with their instragram and music. Like, yelling 'go team!' at a tennis match, and 'pass the ball!' during a chess game.

itzy's girlfriend
it's just so weird and bizarre. there's nothing wrong with being formed by a company, hell i like kpop, but it's just weird how they're trying so hard to hide it. and it's even weirder that they're trying to be socially woke when they obviously aren't. punk is all about being authentic. how are you going to just label that you're a punk band, but don't even believe in the core principles of punk? It's honestly upsetting that they have this act of being socially aware but they don't believe in it. They just say it for brownie points and because they think it's aesthetic. I don't care whether they came from a company or not, it's just the fact that they're spewing shit they don't even believe. Activism is all about believing and fighting for what you think is right when something or someone is being wronged unjustly. This isn't something that you just get to say on the internet and then never believe in. It's just a shitty move. If you're going to be an activist, at least believe in what you preach.

am i the only one who doesn't think the straight white guy lyric is that bad? Like the idea is straight white guys are the least marginalized group of people, that specific combination of people (add cis and its even more). So, if you're talking about it in that way, like you're over dating/dealing with people who are overly privileged and shit and don't admit it i get it. But in their case, if they only date straight men, then i guess the only part that can be changed is the white part and i guess that's weird? Like doesn't everyone commonly joke about hating straight white men?

I do not care about this drama in the slightest but I will say that I think they may have a small point with the sexism criticism. Because all things being equal, a group that's all female and/or a group that's unapologetically catering towards women by address women's experiences (particularly in a way that's not complimentary towards men) IS going to be facing an uphill battle. Women are more heavily scrutinized, held to a higher standard, and quicker to be criticized than men. I also didn't have a problem with at least the lyrics of I Would Rather Die read here as often men are selfish lovers and a criminal percentage of women still don't orgasm regularly during sex. I figured the 2nd verse addresses the kind of guy who basically gets his rocks off in an exaggeratedly unsatisfying (for his partner) way and doesn't even have the decency to offer to eat her out or something afterward.

This is so interesting to me. We Stan kpop idols SO HARD knowing that they are fake and totally manufactured but we reject even the appearance of that in our own music. I wonder why? Is it because the kpop idols don’t pretend to be real?
Lena 5 days ago
the thing about kpop is that the fandom explicitly knows how manufactured it is. there are even types of fans who will say that they like kpop stars from this certain company or will exclusively only stan idols from one company. groups are known to the public before they even debut because their company releases promo before their debut song releases. most people who listen to kpop can name a company that any well known group is from. the whole process of idols being trainees and signing up to a company to train for years in order to be part of a group lineup is very well known and sometimes seen as a point of pride in the industry. tldr: kpop embraces the highly manufactured part about them. the industry is very transparent on how idols come to be in groups and thats why they dont get backlash over being manufactured. because industry plants are the ones who lie about being "indie" and "independent".

I saw someone post a comment about them somewhere along the lines of: "they tried to pander to one of the communities that values authenticity more than anything and it massively backfired" which is so true. Whether they are industry plants or not they are clearly not authentic and it's honestly comical how quickly they were found out.

You know who appeals to gen z and is older than the tramp stamps? Jhene Aiko. She makes music that is a reflection of her and is actually relatable. I feel like Caro and blue girl don't even want to be there. Someone please rescue them.
