Ryan Gosling Was Not Happy With This La La Land Clip
I am just basic enough to have thoroughly enjoyed La La Land (zero shame here) but even I wasn't delighted by the casting of Gosling as the white savior of jazz. Gosling's Sebastian is a lover of the genre, and spends a good chunk of the film explaining his adoration for it to pretty much everyone he meets. He even ruins a working relationship with his friend Keith (John Legend) because Seb can't understand why Keith wants to innovate jazz as opposed to sticking to Seb's beloved classics. At the end of the film, Sebastian opens a nostalgia-inducing jazz bar, and La La Land basically confirms him as the authority on jazz.
