i think leaks generate more hype for albums than hurting their sales. people who were going to buy it will still buy, people who dont like to support artists will download regardless (gonna listen to the leak anyway bc im weak and cant resist)
i get what you’re saying, but idk, i just still think it sucks for the artist. musicians do get upset by it too and it sort of ruined the hype for me bc everyone’s going to say their opinion on it now and then when it’s finally released people will be like, “oo i already heard it lol” and yeah, but that’s just me. i mean it’s only a ten day wait, which isn’t long at all and people always leak shit right before it’s released.
Mostly all albums are leaked. This would show who her real fans are for waiting for the release.
I know most albums are leaked, and I hate more than anything. Unless you actually have worked on a music you have no idea how much time and energy goes into creating just one song. I myself write songs on a daily basis, but to me that’s not the hard part, creating the sound itself is. I know this because I’ve actually created what would be considered electronic/synth music before, and shit man it takes time to make the perfect track, let alone an entire album.
Look, I don’t think it shows who her “real fans” are. I think everyone in the fanbase is on an equal level when it comes to that, and besides I hate that term. We all have our own opinions, some may not think listening to a leaked album is wrong, and that’s perfectly fine for them. To me though, it’s wrong and unfair for the artist.
I am getting pissed off with another Lights blog that says those fans who don't like the sex scene in the new video are prude. Who the hell does he think he is? There's nothing wrong with disliking a sex scene in your favourite singer's music video.
I never saw that post.
I mean, we’re all entitled to our own opinions. I personally think there is nothing wrong with finding a sex scene to be disturbing. It could be a trigger thing, for example those who were sexually abused or raped could find it to be triggering. Some people could just believe sex is a personal thing and they don’t enjoy seeing it on their screens.
To me, the sex scene was no big deal. It wasn’t even a sex scene in my opinion, it was pretty much nothing. But hey, we all have our own opinions, so it’s all good. I don’t really see why it’s a big deal tbh.
I honestly don’t care right now if anyone sends me hateful messages over this – look, we all have our opinions, this is mine.
If you haven’t heard the song by Meghan Trainor called ‘All About That Bass’ I suggest you give it a listen right now and read the lyrics too. I personally think the song is amazing, not only beat and melody wise, but the lyrics are incredible.
I have been severely bullied my entire because I was what other’s considered ‘fat’. I was called every fucking name, but that one word fat has always stuck to me. Why? Because it was the number one thing I got called. My peers called me fat, children younger than me, older than – my fucking friend’s parents called me fat. The funny thing is my waist fits into a size S and I’m considered normal. And even though I know this I spend most nights crying over how disgusting I believe I am. I can’t look in the mirror for more than two seconds without crying or having the urge to punch it. This has been happening since I was eight years old – since I was a fucking child.
I despise myself more than anything. I’ve had borderline eating disorders – it’s still hard for me to eat without feeling like a failure. Trust me, this describes nothing.
Music has always been there for me, and yet it never makes me feel confident about my body. It’s so hard to find a song that is body positive and embraces every shape and size. When I first heard ‘All About That Bass’ I did feel that sense of pride in myself. I wanted to shake my ass and be proud of my curves. Then I read the comments. People saying it’s wrong to love yourself if you are ‘overweight’. Others saying the song is skinny-shaming, and once in a while a positive one.
First of all, your fucking weight does not define your health. You can be a size zero and eat the unhealthiest food in the world. I used to be friends with a girl who was incredibly small – she weighed forty kilograms. And yet ate more food than anyone. Most of it was junk food, but she had a fast metabolism and was naturally slim. I’ve also met a shit ton of girls and guys who were considered ‘large’ and ate so healthy and did exercise. Some of them were even sports stars. Your weight does not define how healthy you are. What you choose to put in your body does.
And second of all, the song is not skinny-shaming. It sarcastically states, “I’m bringing booty back, go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that. No I’m just playing. I know you think you’re fat, but I’m here to tell ya every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top.”
She clearly makes out that it was sarcasm, and that she knows that girls who are smaller have body issues too. Not to sound selfish or anything, but can us girls who are what society considers ‘fat’ and ‘disgusting’ have a positive song without people complaining that it’s skinny-shaming? I know skinny-shaming exists, and it sucks. No one deserves it. But you have no idea what it’s like. You are not considered an actual phobia, you are not called unhealthy on a daily basis, you are not judged for eating in public, you are not a fucking fetish! I hate skinny-shaming – I hate judging someone for any physical appearance, but this song is obviously not doing that. It’s not at all. What I’m trying to say is that’s not okay to fat shame nor is it okay to skinny shame, but this song is not doing that. It’s promoting a positive body image for all sizes.
Just, understand there is a difference between shaming those for those for being small and saying they are not attractive and trying to say it’s okay to be bigger, even though society is constantly calling you digusting, it’s okay to be any size.
I agree; I mean I like the video, but my expectations were higher. Oh well, still pretty cool!
I thought the video was awesome and entertaining to watch, but my expectations were so high. I guess it’s my own fault, but ‘Up We Go' has so much meaning to me, that's probably why I expected something more.
So apparently iCloud was hacked and pretty much every female celebrity’s nudes were leaked. I’d like to remind my followers not to post them, because they’re supposed to be private, and just because some asshole leaked them doesn’t mean you should make it worse by spreading them around.
My Saturday night consist of me chasing my cat down the street because my father let him out in the middle of the night. It’s cold and I have to try and catch my cat in pitch black as he runs into random people’s yards. I stood in mud and my boobs fell out of my singlet.
The true story of how a seventeen year old spends Saturday nights in the land down under.
