Whipped Cream responds to criticism of her career path

Canadian artist Whipped Cream gained widespread respect after her Shambhala 2018 performance, but her rise to success wasn’t always smooth. In a letter on April 26, the young performer articulated the criticism that has been common throughout her career.

Whipped Cream mentions how hearing complaints about her DJ-first mentality motivated her to get in the studio and create monster tracks like You Wanted It and Blood. Concert goers talked down to her when she was only booked for hometown shows in Canada; in response Whipped Cream applied for her own visa, started touring America, and ultimately found her agent stateside.

Throughout her journal entry, she explains how she was able to use this negative criticism as motivation to better herself. Whipped Cream and her steel skin wouldn’t let anyone say no to her dreams.

It’s a shame that some of her critics looked for every excuse to put her down. After reading her letter, it feels like a percentage of people wanted her to fail. We are better than this. If we change our attitudes we can help every artist succeed.

An important quote from Whipped Cream shows precisely how strong she is, “We fight with love and if you hate me now you’re really going to hate me soon because we’re just getting started.”
