Then this tweet reminded people that OBVIOUSLY, SHE IS AND HAS BEEN FOR A LONG TIME. Not only that, but Mary-Kate and Ashley featured Elizabeth as a wee child in a song/diss track about her.
Then that reminded me: They also have a song about their brother Trent, whom they literally wanted to put up for sale without their parents' permission. And not even for at least 100 bucks or something that could buy them a couple of Razor scooters. I'm talking for 25 cents. TWENTY-FIVE MEASLY CENTS!!
So my question is...what gives? Why did Mary-Kate and Ashley hate their siblings so much? Enough to not just talk among themselves about how they are the superior offsprings — but to release music that would be listened to by millions, making it explicitly clear that they wanted their brother and sister to be canceled?
Let's look into this more. First, here are some lyrics from "B-U-T-T Out," their song about Elizabeth, aka Lizzie:
And how 'bout these cold words:
Later on in the song, they attempt to backtrack by pretending that what they're saying is being said only because they "care so much," but it's a little too late, twins!!
Now let's analyze "Brother for Sale." They very clearly state that they want to tie him up and leave him on the side of the road. YIKES!
Once again, later in the song, they try to make us think they were just joking or whatever about their brother, but the damage was done in the first two verses.
And then it was bound to happen. They had no more sisters or brothers to write songs about at that point, so they turned on each other in "I Am the Cute One."
These lyrics speak for themselves:
At this point, Elizabeth had butted out, Trent had been sold off to the neighbors, and now there was only room for either Mary-Kate or Ashley — NOT BOTH. They went for the jugular.
By the end, it was an all-out BRAWL.
So, what's the answer here? I don't know. But there was a time when nothing and nobody was off limits when it came to their songs. Not even blood.
The good news is that no diss track has been released in over two decades, so things seem to be okay now for the Olsen siblings, and I'm happy about that. BYE.
