Fan Mansplains a Song to the Female Musician Who Wrote It


The Philadelphia-based artist, whose real name is Michelle Zauner, shared the cringeworthy advice from the unnamed guy, who started out by saying he’s one of Zauner’s “biggest fans.”

“One of my favorite songs is ‘Till Death’ although I didn’t realize it at first I just realized the bass line sounds forced, I heard some beautiful melody’s in my head that were barely touched upon,” wrote the self-proclaimed “musician/songwriter.” “Just some constructive criticism.”

Zauner responded on Twitter with biting sarcasm: “*Rerecords album.*”

Despite the common nature of mansplaining, people on Twitter couldn’t believe the interaction.

“Did someone just try to mansplain a Japanese breakfast song to Japanese breakfast?” one person tweeted.
