    Which is ironic given his fanbase...is in fact...children of the internet.

    I mean, there's still a way to create the look you're describing. Rihanna does it all the time. Even Kylie Jenner (who I'm not even a fan of) can pull it off well. But with Joan, it's not even the type of outfit all the time, it's the WAY she wears it. She never compliments her features, only makes them awkward. Some people can rock even the UGLIEST attire that I'd never be seen in public with, simply because they know HOW (G-Dragon comes to mind). Joan, imo, does not.

    Long post ahead:
    -I can't stand Twice at all, but I do see where they work harder than BP.
    -I don't think RV will make a good impression in the west given Wendy's past actions. In Korea she "gets away with it." But that definitely would not fly elsewhere. 
    -I'm not an EXO stan at all, but I understand why they are hyped as a group. Even ever since their debut. MAMA was groundbreaking and is a staple in the KPOP timeline imo.
    -GD is problematic as all hell, but I do think he poses actual artistry. I hope he has grown since those times.
    -Amber Liu has a beautiful singing voice and I wish that was showcased more. 
    -I never really understood Winner as a group. It always seemed like each member was made to do something different and they were just shoved together due to the survival show. 
    -Jackson seems like a nice person, but he's ignorant sometimes and I don't like his rapping voice. It sounds forced and now his talking voice sounds damaged.
    -The racism Kris Wu received from some Arianators was messed up and I feel like more people should be talking about it. A lot of those comments were downright disgusting. It reminded me of when SNSD gained traction in America and salty Beiber/1D fans told Tiffany "Go back to your country." 
    -I like Chungha, but I don't think she's the best performer. 
    -I'm not usually a fan of western artists and K idols collaborating. Half the time it doesn't blend well and it just seems like two seperate parties trying deperately to appeal to the other market they wanna get in on. You can almost taste the fake. Sometimes it's not bad though. I thought Nicki fit well in "Idol" tbh. Just, if you're gonna collab, make it sound good, you know? Putting two artists on one track doesn't mean anything, even if they are in the same genre. Make it make sense. 
    -Fandoms weren't only tasteless at times in Third Gen KPOP. Fandoms were a mess in Second Gen KPOP too. Maybe they weren't exposed as much since social media wasn't as prevalent but I definitely remember some awful instances.
    -I still can't look at anything Shinee related.
    -Jennie was always basic to me, even before the #LazyJennie ordeal.

    I was just about to post this. I LIVED. She was well spoken and called him tf out with not just baseless opinions but brought out her research, and he was only a small portion of the video as a whole. I really want to know how Edward will respond, because he always talks about people not doing their research but between the two of them, SHE definitely has. Good on her. Not just because it was Edward. Her using her platform to talk about this issue is great and I'm here for it. Plus, ot, but she looked sickening while doing it.

    I just love how the parts of his neck that are clearly not shadow and hit by natural light are still darker than his face. Hit me with another excuse, Edward. I'll wait.

    There's no way Jennie could pull off something as fire as "Hello Bitches," or the live version of "GZB" by herself.

    I feel like there are so many sides to this it's becomming exhausting. As a woman of color, I feel like I'd look like a fool if I didn't think Jeffree didn't still use the N word, but at the same time, I question if it is entirely logical to think that. It's a very sticky position to be in. I still don't favor Jeffree AT ALL, and like others said, I don't think he is a saint, but I also can't sit here and say that the people coming at Jeffree are completely credible either. Idk, I'm like caught in between not giving him a pass but also feeling like this is getting too messy to have a definitive outlook. Does that make sense? If anyone else who is a person of color (or even if you aren't) would like to give their opinion on this, I'd like to know thoughts. I think I need to read other people's perspectives on this too. 
     
    Sidenote: I also always felt like Thomas was messy and fake woke, so I would have questioned him regardless if his video was about Jeffree or not, which is a shame, because his video could have sent a great message. But as I keep saying, the subject of racism is not "tea" and I feel like more and more gurus are starting to treat it like that which pisses me off.

    What's ironic is how much Crystal is shooting herself in the foot over this doc because doc series are suddenly the new thing on Youtube now, so now is the perfect time to drop it. If she had put it out before, it would have been done and her supporters would have gotten their money's worth. If she puts it out now, it would be a good addition to the documentary trend. So, either way, by not putting out this documentary, Crystal is just only ruining it for herself tbh.

    Nicki's rap in "Idol" was actually a good addition to the track. I was skeptical, but it was good.
     
    Still don't like the song as a whole and still not a Nicki fan, but I can still admit that was a good fit musically, imo.

    Slightly OT sorry, but a G-Idle MV popped up for me and it got me thinking. Do you guys this Cube might have been content with letting Hyuna go because they have Jeon Soyeon? Soyeon is already miles ahead of Hyuna with rapping imo, and Cube's been basically molding her into that center girl anyway. Just speculation, but I kinda wanna know what you guys' take on that is.

    I know the drama channel Dishwashingliquid (spelling?) said she had to check if the tweet was real. And when looking at the comments of the Dustin Dailey video, the comments were saying there is something fishy about the tweet. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-RqPORmzCkU&t=84s
    I never said it WAS in fact fake, as I said in my last comment, I don't know if it's truly fake or not, I'm just seeing comments speculating that it is. I still stand by when I said about Daved's texts though, those look really odd to me and I still think more needs to come out. I probably should have put "outed as potentially fake" in my last comment and for that I apologize. I thought me beginning my sentence with "Apparently" would he enough to clarify it as speculation. 
    EDIT: I just reread my reply to you. Sorry if I came off snappy. I didn't mean to.

    I'M SAYING. Yes to all of this. It's also another reason why I feel like Teddy made more thought out decisions with 2NE1 songs. For example, for their song "Ugly" he said he gave Dara the bridge of the song on purpose because it was light and it gave the song a good balance. It was a very smart decision, because when they sang live CL ended up straining for the chorus, but Dara really shined during the soft acoustics of the bridge. Teddy always seemed to know which member fit which part of a 2NE1 song because their voices were so distinct, and as much as Dara didn't sing, she still managed to have some pretty iconic lines anyway. I feel like that kind of thinking doesn't really go to Blackpink when they're in the studio. Obviously I'm not there, but you can almost tell when just listening to BP songs.
    Sidenote, another Unpopular Opinion: I'm tired of seeing Yugyeom dance. I want to see BamBam dance again. But like for real. I feel like he and Lisa are not using their full dance talent and they'd have an amazing duet if the were just given the chance. It'd be a good business move too. Idk why JYP and YG are sleeping on that.

    Apparently the Gorilla tweet was outed as fake. Just wanted to put that out there. I don't know if it is fake for sure, but people are saying there is something dodgy about the screencap. What do you guys think? I don't want to sound like I'm giving Jeffree a pass, but I would not be surprised if that tweet really was a crafted receipt, all things considered. 
    Also, @bibi del reys, I also agree with your point and you definitely are making sense.

    Slightly Unpopular Opinion: I'm gonna need more proof from this Daved person. For a few reasons. One, he held up a Samsung(?) when he said he would spill tea, but the messages he showed were ihpone messages (which he cleared up, but...still skeptical). Two, he didn't really do much to cover the name of the client in the messages. You can see at the top it says Jeffree Star for some screencaps. Other screencaps he "tried" to censor his name. How can someone be that sloppy with receipts. Three, he blocked some of his OWN texts, which could have been just as bad. Four, he asked for subscribers before spilling tea. If someone is racist, just expose them. He says "I'm not doing this for fame." ....Then why do you need subscribers. Five, he, along with other ex friends of Jeffree have this same narrative of him being racist and want to expose him, meanwhile I'm like...okay but if he's that bad, why wait til NOW to expose him. Why stay friends with someone who you KNOW is horrible...unless you're cut from the same cloth. 
    Also, not a Jeffree stan by any means. Just looking at these receipts with a side-eye until more comes out.

    I feel like Teddy hardly produces for Blackpink as much as he probably just whips up some scrapped beats and is like...here you go. That's probably why their discography is so subpar. I feel like he put more care into 2NE1 tracks tbh. Even with 2NE1's fashion, they had their own designer with a creative touch. Now Blackpink is just given whatever's left in Kim K's closet it seems. Idk, it just seems like clearly part of the reason why the seniors were better is because despite YG being shady, there was more care from staff, labelmates, etc. Like, I never really hear about BigBang or CL or even Dara talk about BP that much. Ikon was on Blackpink house that time, but other than that, not much interaction. Part of the appeal of YG (and the big 3 in general) was seeing the seniors and juniors interact so much. The really did sell the "family" concept. JYP had their Christmas parties, SM Town was more poppin, Haru (Tablo's daughter) would play with all the artists backstage, etc. Now I feel like that essence of "family" is gone and there's more of a disconnect between seniors and juniors because of there being so many groups now. Sorry if this was a long tangent but I think it still falls under an Unpopular opinion because maybe not many people care about that or disagree?
