We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
The MV for M&M looks so tacky and disorganized. Too many effects, transitions, and the tigers... please. I don't really enjoy some of the styles either (like the jean outfits they had while dancing on the platform) The choreo is good at specific parts but all together, it feels like they hired a team that hasn't worked with idols before. (I don't know who they worked with this time, I'll look when credits come out.) It's like they got the dance back from the choreographers and didn't bother to adjust or alter anything, it feels so awkward and cheap, especially in the chorus. I dislike the arrangement and mixing as well. In terms of artistry, I feel like JYPE really messed up here, but it's TWICE so it'll sell. B-sides are pretty good though.
I don't think they're trying to say that Ash should know everything about police brutality or racism but she should at least know the effects of it and that it exists. Even if she wasn't around an extremely diverse crowd, she is American, she should at least know what it is from what one could see on TV or in the news, but in her case, I don't think she could just turn away and ignore it. Obviously being American doesn't mean one is automatically educated but as a young adult (especially one that went to a good high school in a good area) who claims to be a #wOkEqUEEn, she should at least know something. But she doesn't. All that money, all those resources, and she doesn't even use them properly because she's ignorant and fake. The only time she does use them is when it makes her look good, which means she doesn't actually care. Pathetic.
A link to her Etsy shop is on there too, she used to sell chokers and artwork. She has a drawing of her sister on there as well. I have nothing to add to what's happening here already, I'm still shocked her fans comment on those videos explaining why she sucks with such basic preschool bullshit like "no one is perfect" or "everyone makes mistakes" stfu Hannah Montana
Anyway, I'm glad there's at least one Youtube video that calls her out on her bullshit and can properly open up a discussion on it, one that isn't heavily shut down by a couple of clowns on Reddit. I feel like a lot of her fans have confused liking her lifestyle with liking her. Sure living in New York is nice and being an influencer who gets free stuff that you can even sell on depop and going to events only to call them elitist and act like you're above them is cool but Ashley herself is kind of a piece of shit and I would not mix the two if I were them.
Are you serious? That's not safe at all... what's wrong with her? I can understand why people don't like things like those kinks (and I'm not too fond of it either) but there are tons of women/people who are genuinely into being degraded during sex. Even if we don't personally like it, what's important is that we can at least talk about how to engage in these kinks safely and with consent especially with such a young audience. With a stranger, however? Not safe, not even if you communicate with them first. There are still a lot of boundaries to be set and things to talk about. I would probably be a lot nicer to Ashley if she talked about these things the right way and was actually educational about it but she isn't and I don't think she ever will be. It's disappointing and concerning. I think someone will call her out soon, especially with these tiktoks..
I just don't like how people auto assume every woman ever is submissive. Yes, some women are into those things but not all women are, not all women need to be, and it doesn't make you any more or less of a woman. It almost feels really misogynistic when I see people referring to the woman as a sub all the time in like every piece of sexy literature/media I've ever seen. (Not even gonna go into what it's like for Asian women bc kinda off-topic) Just ask your partner what they like beforehand instead of trying some weird and borderline dangerous shit on them. I honestly can't remember if I've ever even heard her mention or say that consent is THE #1 priority when you have sex with someone else. Ash I hope you're reading this right now: promote SAFE sex with a partner you TRUST and can COMMUNICATE WITH. Or just shut up, please..
Am I the only one that actually likes when groups try something new each time? I'm a fan from 2nd gen so groups didn't really have a consistent sound unless it was like.. really cutesy songs or cool macho type concepts. I feel like having a SUPER consistent style (in kpop) is a bad idea because you run the risk of having your stuff be so boring after a while (i,e. for me, Chungha, IZONE, or GFRIEND's titles) and it makes me (the general public, fans, casual listeners, etc.) less interested in listening to the actual albums.
Thank you, I really thought she couldn't get any worse and you've proven me wrong. I rarely used this word but this is indeed CRINGE as fuck... While a lot of women are into these things, I feel like Ashley honestly isn't? Or that part of it is just her trying to be relatable because she knows how badly these kinks are pushed onto young women. You do NOT have to be into these kinks to be considered sexy or a "real woman" or not a prude. It is okay to not have these kinks or any at all and I don't like how some of the more submissive ones are being forced onto young women in the bedroom. Being more feminist (in her case) would mean being open about being submissive in bed WHILE recognizing that it does not make you submissive in your daily life. Also promoting safe sex, getting tested, and being open and honest with your partner about what you're into. But I don't think she's that aware.
I got bored and dug a bit one night, but I don't know rules all too well, so I'm just gonna say there's like a 50/50 chance her mom is/isn't an immigrant as well based on what I read. That being said, I do think she's referring to her mother when she tries to play the immigrant card considering her father is white and she needs those "Asian immigrant" struggle points to seem less privileged. Her dad makes MORE than enough.
On that note, I'm getting very uncomfortable with how cozy some stylists are getting lately with their choices... especially those working with idols from bigger companies. You'd think they'd do some research to avoid getting yelled at but alas.
There are several idols I just genuinely dislike and find annoying but I don't know how someone could spend their entire day shit-talking them on their Twitter account or even making an entire hate account for them, just make fun of them by yourself or in a private chat. If you are going to do it on your public account at least make it funny or some shit Also when did people become sooooo sensitive I swear some fandoms can't even handle other stans disagreeing with them on shit that doesn't matter, as if anyone gives a fuck to begin with
