Hi all, I paid the server bill for the month so the site can be archived, sorry for the mess, didn't realize there'd be such an uproar. The site's in read-only mode. Happy archiving. Here's a link to a user-made PULL discord server: https://discord.gg/vZFEm75
OT but please don't give too much weight to anything anyone says on LSA especially when it comes to black girls liking anything that isn't black adjacent. I don't want to seem like I'm talking out of my neck here since I am black kpop stan myself. LSA has a very specific idealized version of what black people can/can't/shouldn't/should like so I don't take anything they say much too seriously at all.
I stumbled across her channel a few days ago since a video was in my recommended and she gives off the vibes of those "feminine energy" "how to get a man using your feminine energy"- type videos, so I left it with the swiftness. Something just rubs me the wrong way about her. I can't even bring myself to watch any of her videos, so I won't speak on them. Just that I get uncanny feelings.
Am I supposed to feel sorry for Coco? Because I don't. Reading the comment that warranted this meltdown, it seems like she has issues with letting this idol thing go. The comment makes sense and obviously it came from an actual viewer. I think the commenter is right. If her mom has been finically supporting her and most likely gave her money for a start-up company, Coco needs to put on her big girl pants and work on getting a stable job rather than releasing new music/trying to buy back her music. The whole kickstarter comment though... yikes. Plus she literally made 5k (I assume since it says $ and not Won) on this very stream. She could sing on twitch for some revenue? I don't understand...
I remember back in the day at the height of her popularity, you would see her photos a lot. Especially the one with the sunflower petals or the heart stickers all over her face. I used to have friends who would talk about how pretty she was, compare themselves to her, etc you know the deal and I would partake sometimes. I think recently, there has been a trend to lean towards more "natural" looking photoshop, nothing too extreme so you wouldn't end up on some photoshop fail board. So, imagine me when I found out she photoshops a lot. Even in the beginning of this thread, it was people thinking that others were jealous of her beauty. I'm not saying she's ugly or anything, but all I'm saying is that since she lurks...I just want to know how she does it. A sis is struggling out here too. (jk)
You can drop this act too, Serena. Did she forget that there are people with EDs who came to her for recovery inspiration and one of them being in this thread surprised she frequently lies about her body? It's almost like this cottagecore/fake uwu mess is compensating for something else...hmmm i wonder what that may be? Tbh I wouldn't be surprised if she sent this ask to herself.
The fact that she parked her car in the middle of the road while you can see that she's blocking traffic just seals the deal for me with this whole protest incident. The fact that she always has an arrogant tone when addressing criticism but wants others to get her the benefit of the doubt baffles me. The fact that she messages people to try and get them to do what she wants. She did it with a YouTuber named itzkeisha too who happened to make a video about her that was critical of her actions. Instead of all of this running around, she could have just apologized because the Barbra Streisand effect is very much applied here.
I wasn't referring to that when I was responding. I'm not refuting your claims about what goes on in America. I understand that. I do however think that what makes a certain country qualifies as a "first, second or third" can be applied to multiple countries and vise versa which is why I believe Ashley was just throwing around a buzzword as she rides her pro-revolution high. Because someone saying us isn't a third world country doesn't necessarily make it first world country or a third world. As you said, injustice still goes on here so I'm agreeing with you. @Coco1995 Sorry I can't quote! But that's what I'm saying. Someone saying that it isn't a third world country doesn't necessarily make it a utopic "first world" country.
I don't think anyone is downplaying what is happening over here just because they believe that America isn't a third world country? Just because someone may think a place isn't a third world country doesn't automatically mean that they believe that the injustices going on in the said country isn't important anymore. You can be a first world country and it still be a piece of shit socially, economically, etc. That's the issue here. She used "third world country" as a buzzword.
I would be more empathetic towards her plight as you explained with beauty standards but after her video the other day about how she is so upset that people are telling her how her image effects young girls and then being braggadocious about it by showing it off (her tone was just arrogant while doing so), I don't think I can extend the same type of concern back to her currently.
This is kind of OT but I feel like it should be brought up. The witchcraft community and especially the wiccan community has a lot of problems with racism. It's known to harbor racist supremacists and a lot of witches of color talk about how a lot of wiccans take from their closed practices aka vodoo,hodoo, brujeria, native witchcraft etc and just use it without any thought. I know a lot of people don't know this but, I feel it's ironic the Serena uses post about the black witchcraft community and whatnot since they've been adamantly super outspoken about the racism in the community but no one gave a shit so...
I was genuinely so excited for More & More when the first trailers were dropping. The styling and the instrumental part they played had me hyped. Until they put them in neon H&M clothing and then the edm dance break with a lukewarm garden of eden theme. They said that More & More was much more complex than Fancy and Feel Special...
The rest of the album seems promising. I'll just move on from More & More and (hopefully) bop to the rest.
It's weird because it's a flex about how ~inspirational~ she is and how much she's an ~activist~. Knowing Halsey, this is her bread and butter since we all know how much of a stunt it is. It focuses on what Halsey did instead of the actual impact the protest as a group did. It's very much a martyrdom thing. He could have DMed her or something but free publicity. This is about Halsey and how much of a selfless activist she is to the people :)))))))
