Okay sooo I just finished watching Jennies solo MV and .....I thought it was underwhelming. I watched her 1 hour V live MV countdown and was kinda excited when she said that she wanted to show a vulnerable and pure side of her and that they put meaning and effort into every individual scene. I liked the few initial seconds into the song (with the snipping and piano beat?Sry I have trouble explaining it >.<).It was quite aesthetically pleasing to me (the soft colours, the filter they used ,the scenery and it fit the theme of the promotion) and seemed almost movie -like and I was optimistic about it ...until this whole boyfriend-finds-a-new-flame thing came and the song progressed into what easily could have been one of BP's new songs. She did mention the bf storyline in her V live, however when she said that she'd show her vulnerable side ,I thought she'd touch on the negative effects of stardom and being criticized by the public. But hey,if the bf scene has a much deeper meaning to her ,then that's fine. I just wish they would have sticked more to what I saw in the beginning of the video and that they would've done more with the beat in the beginning rather than giving it Sunmi vibes (as it was mentioned before).
Why do people talk about white's as if they're carved from the same wood? See I'm not going to deny that often someone who is white will be favoured over POC simply based on stereotypes (when it comes to jobs etc.) and that racism is still very much prevalent, however claiming that you will always have an advantage and be able to do whatever you want and never be discriminated against as long as you're white is just wrong. We have a high percentage of Turks where I live (some who immigrated, some who were born here), who are classified as white (they're not seen as Asians despite Turkey's geographical position, much like Russia they've claimed European identities) and most of the one's I've met have had experiences with people discriminating them based on their nationality or being mocked for speaking with an accent even though they're using proper grammar. Some have been denied housing because people play in on the stereotype that they're all "noisy,criminals, drug dealers and thugs" (and yes, people have accepted these statements as valid reasons for landlords to deny housing without providing actual proof ,ya know because it's their property after all and they get to decide who moves into it, regardless of whether they're being xenophobic or not, you also have to state your nationality and religious beliefs if you want to move into an apartment or house etc). That also applies for many other nationalities such as ones from Eastern Europe and former Balkan States.
I absolutely agree with those who are saying the only reason why western companies are interested in/have signed with BP is because of BTS's success. All they see is the cash in this situation. This hype is going to wear off in another 3-4 years. I feel like Jennie's solo will split the masses. She already gets criticised the most out of every member, so I feel like the audience will be especially hard on her. It makes me feel bad for her tbh, whether she likes being the "YG princess" or not. That must be a lot to deal with. It's one thing to criticise her for being a mediocre performer or looking disinterested in interviews , but that snake YG made her a target by labelling her his favourite and seemingly pushing her more than the others.
What I'm even more tired of other than his fans are the youtubers who are all up his ass just because he's a YT OG and an ~inspiration~ for many of them ,especially the ones who have been around for as long as him. I've watched a couple of people's videos (some of who are in the field of psychology or cover its topics) criticising his documentary but whenever he responds to them ,they suck up to him and say things like "omg hi Shane haha I totally didn't mean to hurt your feelings ,it's my fault for not properly understanding what you were trying to say,I totally understand what you mean OMG I can't believe you noticed me and care about my opinion like who am I omg". I've seen him in so many people's comment section doing damage control,it's insane. I really dislike his "documentary" series. He always tries to act relatable when it's uncalled for. Someone could be talking about depression,suicide or whatever and he'll be like "omg honestly so me". You'd think that someone who has dealt with depression and other mental issues would know better ,but guess not. Can't wait for all of this to be over.
I don't think that beauty companies need to cater to someones shade when it comes to foundations and I say that as someone who's never been able to find the right shade myself (very fair and olive undertone).It's their product and they can do whatever they want with it. Sure ,marketing wise it would be a smarter move to cover a larger demographic, but people who think that a brand cares about their feelings are delusional. They don't care about being inclusive ,it's all about the money. I don't understand why there was such an uproar about Tarte's shape tape foundation shade range. People shouldn't act like they didn't support brands such as Maybelline,Dior etc. who've had shades ranging between 3-5 for decades (and in many countries still do!). Why weren't these brands "cancelled" a long time ago? I'm sure the issue of not being able to find the right shade was already common back then. This whole mess was just a chance for people on social media to jump on their high horses and put themselves on the same level as human rights activists. Calling a brand immoral and disgusting because they don't have 30 shades? Really?
I seriously want to thank those on here who take one for the team and manage to sit through her videos voluntarily.I just have to look at her face and my blood pressure instantly rises to the roof. It doesn't surprise me that she's into quick hookups because any male genitalia goes limp as soon as she opens her mouth.
1) I'm in college rn and getting really tired of people calling others prudes because they don't want to engage in random hookups,drinking or smoking for whatever reason 2) People should stop being so nosy when it comes to relationships ,why is it anyone's business how many people someone has been with ?(also, people who ask my 14 y/o sister if she's had her first kiss or boyfriend yet can f off) 3) Youtube is becoming too high production ( youtube premium, youtube series etc.) and has become unauthentic 4) I don't see the appeal in Ed Sheeran's music. It's mediocre. 5) Most American and European politicians are laughingstocks with no more than two braincells these days. Whenever there's a summit for something it's all about who acts the highest and mightiest ,hardly about finding proper solutions for the issues discussed.They could at least try a little bit harder for the fat salary they don't deserve. 6) I wish mainstream music charts were more diverse nowadays like they were in the 90's ( a bit of rap/hip hop,pop,rock etc)
I'm wondering what he's gonna do if his new girl group also follows the girl crush concept,since that seems to be YG's thing? Promote 2 gg with the same concept? If that happens BP will disband sooner than we think ,because even though they are not rookies anymore, their discography is lacking (Idk it that'll get better if they get even less comebacks with the new gg) and since Teddy writes and composes their songs I feel like these 2 ggs won't be distinguishable at all? Also, I wouldn't put it past netizens to start fan wars between the two groups about who's more popular and successful
Why is everyone praising Rosé's voice so much?I seriously don't get it. Her after debut voice is so nasally even though it was so soothing before (like in GD's song "Without you" ,you can hear the emotion when she sings,but now it just sounds like she's yelling) like that voice could easily have been one of my favourites by now. Please enlighten me,I seriously don't get how YG was like "Rosé, sweetie, your voice needs to change" ???
Tbh I think it depends on which country you're from. Tons of people from the balkan states ( Albania, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Kosovo ect) have a bad rep and are sometimes treated as outcasts because they are often blamed for crime in European countries. Many are ashamed to speak in their mother tongue in public or refuse to associate with their community because of the the bad connotations. While I don't care about it anymore ,there have been instances where I've talked to my mom over the phone in my mother tongue in public and had someone shout at me "here we speak (language of the country I currently live in)!!!" basically saying that I shouldn't speak my mother tongue. Also, I rarely see people proudly displaying their heritage from these counties in contrast to ones such as France,Germany ,Sweden etc. Idk if people from the US with balkan heritage feel the same way though,maybe not because we're a smaller minority there?
