Anonymous asked: would you ever post a picture of your butt?
Nooo I haven’t. I did consider covering “Fountain” but I’m not sure if I’d do it justice :x
Logically? I don’t recognise your logic. Maybe you could explain/elaborate…?
I’m not the only person in the world who appears less anxious on social media than in real life. The world is filled with millions of people who are shy offline but blossom into confident goddesses on the interwob.
There are numerous (obvious) reasons why: on the internet you can be whoever the hell you want, you can craft an alter ego, you can edit your appearance, you can cherry pick the opinions, jokes and activities that show you in whatever light you choose. Not to mention that you can find echo chambers of like-minded people from across the globe who provide a safe space free from judgement and criticism.
There’s a reason that people who have been on the receiving end of bullying, abuse or oppression are so prevalent and active on social media…
Having said that, though, I don’t think that I necessarily am less anxious online than in real life. I’m more open about anxiety on tumblr/twitter etc., but I’m not less anxious. I certainly don’t edit my photos or thoughts or opinions or hide behind anonymity (like you) or spout lies to feel more confident. I’m very open about my mental illnesses.
But I do second guess myself constantly and sometimes I don’t feel like talking to or interacting with anyone because I hate myself.
Thanks! I’m the macaron queen
Thank you! Thank you so much, whoever you are. You are a beautiful kind person and I hope you enjoy my EP :)
I’ve been on tour in America and I only just got back so I haven’t listened yet.
Thank you lovely. I wondered what had happened to you but it’s nice to see what you’re up to on twitter recently. Thanks for the kind words and support/encouragement.
I respect your opinion but I disagree.
I just use that b blond stuff you can buy at any boots or superdrug. Usually instead of the L’oreal toner, I use a bit of directions neon blue mixed with conditioner to get it more ‘grey/blue/silver’. But recently I had to go to a wedding so I changed it up so it was just white.
People always ask me how I get my hair so white and there’s no magic secret trick, unfortunately. I use the same products as most people. It’s just the fact that I have dark blond hair naturally so it lightens really easily.
I’m quarter Spanish, quarter Czech Jew, one eighth Mexican, one eighth Native American (Apache), one eighth Irish and one eighth Scottish. (Yes, really.)
I identify as White Hispanic tho cuz culturally I have the most ties to my British and Spanish heritage.
Thank u :) It was my first time wearing a suit (I’ve worn, like, tuxes/dinner jackets for orchestra concerts before but this was different) so I was nervous I would look gross but I think it turned out ok.
Oh cool. Well I hope you like it. Is that a compliment? I’ll take it as one anyway.
2012? Do you mean 2013?
I absolutely adore “Nuclear Seasons”, “You’re The One” and “Stay Away” but they were originally released in 2012 which is why they’re not on my best of 2013 so far list.
I never got round to listening to True Romance but maybe if I do it’ll go on my best albums of the year. I can’t really say yet.
I tried getting through both of them and failed on both accounts. I was a huge fan of some of the stuff on Justin’s last album and think he’s a really forward thinking songwriter even if he disappears up his own colon at the best of times.
His new one is just… so self-indulgent tho. I couldn’t get into it. I liked “Mirrors” for about five seconds but it’s just the same chords over and over again. There’s none of the ingenuity, composition-wise, of stuff like “LoveStoned” or “What Goes Around…” or “My Love”. It’s just overly long and episodic for the sake of it. Plus, lyrically, it’s just so gooey.
Anyway I’ve never listened to a Daft Punk album cuz everyone has blindspots and I just haven’t gotten round to it. I had a go on their recent album and it was enjoyable-ish but a bit sort of… easy listening. Again it felt self-indulgent and overly reliant on show-offy studio trickery and length.
I respect both Timberlake and D Punk a lot as musical innovators but, really, just a note for the future: making a song really long does not immediately improve it. Keep it short and sweet plz. Thanks. Also look up ‘humble’ and ‘self-doubt’ in the dictionary. Might make you better artists in the long run.
