i think it's more about how when asian kpop idols debut in the US (a place in where asian representation is at it's minimum and the barriers to success is relatively closed to asians) and see that they're doing successfully well, it is due to asian culture itself seeking for western validation. The Western is so influential, in regards to it being the standards of success, that when kpop idols are received well by the western public, it often means they succeeded or are doing well (Blackpink, NCT or BTS). When a westerner debuts in an industry that was created for asian people to succeed and show off their talents, even tho they have the ability to create a career in the US successfully, it is taking away that opportunities of actual asians. The kpop industry itself is colourist and doesn't accept dark skinned asian, so how is it fair a westerner gets to debut when dark skinned asians are turned away? Kpop is the asian representation that a lot of asians missed out on while growing up and for Lana to debut within an asian industry is her trying to fit herself into a place where she honestly isn't needed (sorry if this sounded harsh) Imma be honest, her dancing is average and her singing is below the standards i would have expected of a kpop idol and her 2 years of training. I kinda feel like, since she knows about korean culture and society, she knew that she had a better chance within the Korean industry due to the idolisation of western features.
(sorry if I'm reviving a dead thread, the last update was a month ago)
Idk if it’s me just being overly sensitive but her caption doesn’t sit well with me. Firstly, Van Gogh didn’t eat yellow paint to be happy. Secondly, the romanticisation of turning his attempt to poison and kill himself into something “positive” is just plain horrible, so for her to go and turn it into a caption (ik it’s a meme) just seems so insensitive.
I'm guessing this is why she went off her media. Heartbreak sucks and it honestly seemed like they both loved each other. Judging by the way she tweeted about it, they probably ended it with no harsh feelings towards each other.
this is a horrible mistake. If she's already suffering from mental health issues then relying on external validity will only get her to a certain point until she comes back down again. No lie, mental health is the hardest thing an outsider can understand and handle so I wonder how long he would be able to cope until he's had enough and breaks up with her.
not sure if it has been mentioned but I do remember that Jessica has/had a boyfriend. Pretty sure they broke up but if they did I would say they dated for less than a month. Since she lives in a place where its mainly populated by college students, he was likely a college student.
I'm happy that she confident with herself enough to post pictures of herself, and her body, but you can't help but remember that people are conditioned to over sexualise girls from the media and such. She's not asking for older men to message her, verbally, but people judge what they see online, and if you're out here smoking and talking about sex on full blast, at such a young age then you should expect people to think you're older, hence hit on you.
ffs she annoys me. what does she expect to happen with a large following? its the internet and people will say whatever about you, just remain unbothered. she constantly rants about her life, smokes underage (if I'm correct that she's 17) , and talks about her sex life on full blast on twitter. surely if you tweet about how your boyfriend f*cked you so hard, he ruined your eyelashes, you would expect people to talk about it.
(hopefully I did this right) hasn't putting red eyeshadow/blush underneath your eyes always been a Japanese trend? think it's called 'byojaku' or 'hangover makeup' heck even I did it when I was younger.
