50 ja

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: we allowed 50 Cent to single-handedly ruin Ja Rule's music career. Sure their beef started long before the diss tracks came out because Ja Rule got robbed by 50 Cent's friend and he associated him with the act of theft, but would you be mad at people who associate with known thieves? and half the times the jabs at his musical style were so low-- people went on and on about how Ja Rule was weak because he sang, but now rappers like Drake as well as many local rap artists have careers predicated on half-hearted singing along with rapping. Ja Rule was ahead of his time, if you ask me.
Why should you watch SKAM?

The Norweigian television show SKAM has just begun their 4th (and last) season and if you haven’t watched it yet, here’s a list of why it’s one of the most genius television shows ever created (not in chronological order or whatsoever)

  • It’s a show about norwegian teenagers set in real-time (as in veeery real-time.. more about that later) Norway at Hartvig Nissen Skole (a high school)
  • Julie Andem, the creator of the series and the whole SKAM crew behind it is 50/50 gender wise 
  • JA researched A LOT before she started to write and has even written her characters around the actors themselves which makes it much more authentic
  • Every season evolves around a new person from the series (also their POV), including how they perceive the others resulting in minor changes in clothes, behaviour etc. from season to season
  • Julie Andem actually LISTENS to her fans, engage with the fandom, re-construct fan art, tries to constantly surprise fans and everything has a symbolic meaning - giving lots of opportunities for fans to discuss theories and geek the f out

  • The show deals with a lot of different themes such as mental illness, rape culture, body shaming, eating disorders, feminism, homosexuality, religion, and the list goes on. It all centers around one thing: finding your own identity

  • The whole setup of the series is different. You have real instagram-profiles, youtube- and facebook accounts of the fictive characters. You get snips and pieces from their fictive, private life in the form of group chats, random pictures, videos and such on the blog skam.p3.no & if you seek out their profiles too
  • During the airing of the season you get real-time updates from the show (small clips, group chats, whatever) (ie. a clip that’s set this Wednesday on 19:51 (7:51pm) is posted at that time)
  • The whole portrayal of the characters is so authentic in general and as a member of the LGBTQ+ community it pleased me how well they [SPOILER ALERT] handled Isak and Even’s relationship in season 3
