and they won the award for the best new artist

Things that will blow your mind:

1. “One Shot” did not win a music show, in fact, B.A.P never won a music show until 1004, when they were finally payed by their company for over 3 years of work, a measly $16 000.

2. Despite being nominated for Best New Male Artist and Artist of the Year in 2012 and receiving Mnet PD’s Choice Award that year, B.A.P have never been invited to MAMA.

From the Taylor Swift Spotify page.

Taylor Swift is that rarest of pop phenomena: a superstar who managed to completely cross over from country to the mainstream.

Other singers performed similar moves – notably, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson both became enduring mainstream icons based on their ‘70s work – but Swift shed her country roots like they were a second skin; it was a necessary molting to reveal she was perhaps the sharpest, savviest populist singer/songwriter of her generation, one who could harness the Zeitgeist and turn it personal and, just as impressively, perform the reverse. These skills were evident on her earliest hits, especially the neo-tribute “Tim McGraw,” but her second album, 2008’s Fearless, showcased a songwriter discovering who she was and, in the process, finding a mass audience. Fearless wound up having considerable legs not only in the U.S., where it racked up six platinum singles on the strength of the Top Ten hits “Love Story” and “You Belong with Me,” but throughout the world, performing particularly well in the U.K., Canada, and Australia. Speak Now, delivered almost two years later in the autumn of 2010, consolidated that success and Swift moved into the stratosphere of superstardom, with her popularity only increasing on 2012’s Red and 2014’s 1989, a pair of records that found her moving assuredly from country into a pop realm where she already belonged.

This sense of confidence had been apparent in Taylor Swift since the beginning. The daughter of two bankers – her father, Scott Kingsley Swift, worked at Merrill Lynch; her mother Andrea spent time as a mutual fund marketing executive – Swift was born in Reading, Pennsylvania and raised in suburban Wyomissing. She began to show interest in music at the age of nine, and Shania Twainwound up as her biggest formative influence. Swift started to work regularly at local talent contests, eventually winning a chance to open for Charlie Daniels. Soon, she learned how to play guitar and began writing songs, signing a music management deal with Dan Dymtrow; her family relocated to Nashville with the intent of furthering her music career. She was just 14 years old but on the radar of the music industry, signing a development deal with RCA Records in 2004. Swift sharpened her skills with a variety of professional songwriters, forming the strongest connections with Liz Rose. Taylor’s original songs earned her a deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, but not long after that 2004 deal she parted ways with Dymtrow and RCA, all with the intent of launching her recording career now, not later.

Things started moving swiftly once Swift came to the attention of Scott Borchetta, a former DreamWorks Records exec about to launchBig Machine Records. Borchetta saw Swift perform at a songwriters showcase at the Bluebird Cafe and he signed her to Big Machine in 2005; shortly afterward, she started work on her debut with producer Nathan Chapman, who’d previously helmed demos for Taylor. Boasting original song credits on every one of the record’s 11 songs (she penned three on her own), Taylor Swift appeared in October 2006 to strong reviews and Swift made sure to work the album hard, appearing at every radio or television event offered and marshaling a burgeoning fan base through use of MySpace. “Tim McGraw,” the first song from the album, did well but “Teardrops on My Guitar” and “Our Song” did better on both the pop and country charts, where she racked up five consecutive Top Ten singles. Other successes followed in the wake of the debut – a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist (she lost to Amy Winehouse), stopgap EPs of Christmas songs – but Swift concentrated on delivering her sophomore set, Fearless.

Appearing in November 2008, Fearless was certified gold by the RIAA in its first week of release, and the record gained momentum throughout 2009, earning several platinum certifications as “Love Story,” “White Horse,” “You Belong with Me,” “Fifteen,” and “Fearless” all scaled the upper reaches of the country charts while “You Belong with Me” nearly topped Billboard’s Top 100. Along with the success came some headlines, first in the form of an infamous appearance at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards where her acceptance speech was interrupted by Kanye West, who burst on-stage to declare that Swift’s rival Beyoncé deserved the award more, but her romances also started gaining attention, notably a liaison with Twilight star Taylor Lautner, who appeared with the singer in the 2009 film Valentine’s Day.

Her flirtation with the silver screen proved brief, as she then poured herself into her third album, Speak Now. Released in October 2010, Speak Now was another massive first-week smash that refused to lose momentum. Hit singles like “Mine” and “Mean,” which won two Grammys, played a big factor in its success not just on the country charts but on pop radio as well. Following a 2011 live album called World Tour Live: Speak Now, Swift turned toward following a pop path on her fourth album, hiring such mainstream musicians as Dan Wilson, Butch Walker, and Britney Spears producer Max Martin. This mainstream pulse was evident on “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” the first single from Red. Upon its October 2012 release, Red shattered expectations by selling over a million copies in its first week, a notable achievement that was doubly impressive in an era of declining sales. Once again, Swift’s album had legs: it was certified platinum four times in the U.S. and its international sales outstripped those of Speak Now. She supported Red with an international tour in 2013 and more hits came, including “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “22.”

As Swift geared up for the release of her fifth album in 2014, she made it clear that 1989 was designed as her first “documented, official” pop album and that there would be no country marketing push for the record. “Shake It Off,” an ebullient dance-pop throwback, hit number one upon its August 2014 release. When 1989 appeared in late October 2014, it once again shot to number one and became her third straight to sell one million copies in its first week (a new record for any artist).

Swift gathered many awards during the subsequent year, including Billboard’s Woman of the Year, the Award for Excellence at the American Music Awards, and a special 50th Anniversary Milestone Award from the CMAs. Her 1989 World Tour crossed Asia, North America, and Europe during the last half of 2015, and she won three Grammy Awards at the 2016 ceremonies, including Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Music Video for “Bad Blood.” At the end of 2016, she released “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” a duet with ZAYN from the soundtrack for Fifty Shades Darker. The single reached the Top Five across the world. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

OCTOBER 21: The Handmaiden is released (2016)

Happy one year anniversary of the release of the film The Handmaiden, which first premiered in the U.S. on this day in 2016. Based on Sarah Waters’s iconic lesbian novel Fingersmith, the film adapts the story of a pickpocket falling in love with an heiress in Victorian England into Victorian-era South Korea.

Similar to other iconic LGBT films such as Carol or Moonlight, The Handmaiden has grown its very own pocket of devoted lesbian fandom ever since its release last year (x).

In the film, Kim Min-hee and Kim Tae-ri star as the protagonists, the wealthy Lady Izumi Hideko and trained pickpocket Sook-hee. Sook-hee comes from a long line of con artists and the tale picks up with her in the midst of her latest project working for a man named Count Fujiwara. With Sook-hee posing as a maid, Fujiwara invades the home of the single and rich Lady Izumi with the intent of marrying her, committing her to an asylum, and then divvying up what’s left of her fortune between himself and Sook-hee. The plan seems airtight until Sook-hee and Izumi sleep together one night and begin to feel themselves falling in love.

The Handmaiden made its first big splash after premiering at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and making headlines as the new thrilling South Korean lesbian drama that everyone couldn’t wait to get their hands on. At Cannes, Ryu Seong-hee won the Vulcan Award of the Technical Artist for her art direction. It was also shown at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival and was lauded as one of the top 15 best films to be shown there. To date, it is the highest grossing film director Park Chan-wook has ever released in the United States.

“Aw… Look at how cute my baby is.” Once you saw him recording you with a smile on his face, you threw a pillow at him, causing him to laugh even more. You caused him to surrender into his childish ways so he stopped recording and threw the pillow back at you, his laughter never stopped thanks to the fact that the pillow hit you.

After your short pillow fight, Mark held your hand and looked into your eyes lovingly.

“I can tell today is going to be a great day, you’re going to win that award.”

Currently having an interview, his interviewer asked him, “so what happened when you went to the states?” Jaebum couldn’t help laughing before responding.

“My lover… (Y/N) was nominated for an MTV award, and won the award for Best New Artist. When (Y/N)’s name was called out, she/he couldn’t stop crying. She/he could hardly say her/his acceptance speech because of how much she/he cried. But I can’t honestly say that I’ve never been so proud before. After all those long talks; (Y/N) telling me that she/he was ready to give up her/his dream, crying her/himself to sleep due to the stress, I’m so happy that their hard work had finally paid off. And I’m completely sure the award she/he won will not be the last.”

The Grammy Awards. You sat next to Jackson backstage. You had won the album of the year award and you swore Jackson was more emotional than you. When they announced you as the winner, Jackson jumped up and started to cry as he hugged everyone around him. For a moment, you believed that he won the award instead of you. As you went on stage to accept your award, Jackson cried even more when you mentioned his name in your speech.

Now that you were backstage with your award, Jackson wouldn’t stop taking pictures of you and posting onto his social media pages. It was almost like he was bragging about your success.

“Jackson enough. It’s just an award.” You laughed. He gasped and placed his hand over his chest.

“Just an award? This is your first ever Grammy Award, this is a huge accomplishment. You should be just as proud of yourself as I am of you.”

At first, he had a poker face; it didn’t seem like he loved it or hated it. It wasn’t until the promo was halfway done where he began so show some emotions. Once he finally had an idea about the plot, he was beginning to feel sad, which was good since your movie was a drama.

Towards the end of your promo, you watched as Jinyoung’s heart broke when your character was laying in the hospital bed due to a gunshot wound. When the promo was over, Jinyoung looked at you as if he just found out your darkest secret.

“When were you going to tell me that you are an amazing actor/actress?”

The BET Awards. Youngjae was sitting in the audience with your family and close friends, waiting anxiously for you to perform. You were performing a song about things you’ve experienced/witnessed when it came to racism. When the beat to your song dropped, Youngjae was the first one to raise to his feet, clapping and cheering. Once you finally appeared on stage, he sat back down and watched your performance closely. 

He was in awe when he laid his eyes onto you. Not only because you looked amazing on stage, but also because you performed a song with a powerful message. Nodding his head to the music, Youngjae smiled at the reaction the crowd was giving you. But it was the very last line of your song that really moved the crowd to their feet.

“You want equal rights, but you can’t figure out how to act right, when someone different walks into your sight.”

Of course, Youngjae was apart of the standing ovation. A few tears of joy began to fall from his eyes as he watched you leave the stage. He knew how much this performance meant to you, so for you to get such a positive reaction made him so happy and proud.

“Let’s start off with you (Y/N)… How are you feeling about tonight?” Asked the interviewer.

“I’m feeling very confident about tonight. I’m looking around and I see all the signs from people who supports me and my work, people wearing my products, people screaming they love me. As a designer… It makes me want to work harder.”

Bambam smiled at you and wrapped his arm around your shoulders, pulling you closer to him. 

“And what about you Bambam? How are you feeling?”

“I’m feel happy. (Y/N) got the call saying she/he was a nominee for some awards back in Korea. When she/he told me, I swear I was more excited than her/him.

His eyes were glued on you dancing on the sidelines. He laughed and danced in his seat to the music.

The show was ending and it was time for you to give your closing speech.

“And lastly, I want to give a special thanks to my boyfriend Yugyeom. He came all the way from South Korea to support me. Everyone give him a round of applause.” You first said it in English, then Korean, causing him to lower his head as he blushed in embarrassment.

“I love you Yugyeom.” He picked up his head and smiled at you, mouthing the words back to you.



This was supposed to be posted a LONG time ago, but some bs happened. I had one one more member to write for, when my laptop died and everything deleted. I was so mad that I wanted to pretend that this asked never existed. But then I was like, “nah lemme stop playing.”

On this day in music history: November 19, 1990 - Pop music duo Milli Vanilli are stripped of their Grammy Award for Best New Artist. The National Academy Of Recording Arts And Sciences, the organization that awards the coveted music industry honor, revokes the prize won by Milli Vanilli members Fabrice Morvan and Rob Pilatus, after it is revealed that neither actually sang on the groups’ multi-Platinum selling album “Girl You Know It’s True”. Producer Frank Farian announces to the press on November 12, 1990 that the duo did not actually perform on the album (the actual vocalists were Charles Shaw, Brad Howell and John Davis), after Pilatus and Morvan insisted on singing on the second Milli Vanilli album, which was in production. In a hastily organized press conference, Rob and Fab give their award back, explaining that they were basically pawns in the deception perpetrated by producer Farian, who had made them the visual face of the group after he found they could not sing. As a result of the scandal, former fans file class act lawsuits against Arista Records seeking refunds for their purchase of Milli Vanilli’s records. Rob & Fab attempt to continue their music career, but due to the overwhelmingly negative publicly surrounding them, the album they release in 1991 under their own names sells only 2,000 copies in the US. Interest in the duo is revived when they are the subject of the premiere episode of the VH1 program “Behind The Music”, documenting their meteoric rise and fall. Sadly, Rob Pilatus, plagued by numerous personal problems after Milli Vanilli’s fall from grace, dies of a drug and alcohol overdose in a hotel in Frankfurt, Germany on April 2, 1998 at the age of 32. Fab Morvan continues to work as a musician and public speaker, recording an album in 2003. In 2007, Universal Pictures announces that they are working on a biopic about Milli Vanilli, written and directed by screenwriter Jeff Nathanson (“Catch Me If You Can”). To date, the project is still in development.

Seventeen just received their first win on a music show (040516 Show Champion) and all I could think of was that it was about time. 

These 13 boys have worked so hard for so long and had so many obstacles:

  • Training with a company that was going bankrupt.
  • Not having a clue if/when they would ever debut.
  • Being away from home for so long.
  • Being made fun of publicly by people who thought their talents were weak.

BUT they always came back stronger.

  • They became the FIRST rookie group to sell over 100,000 copies in 3 months with their 2nd Mini Album “Boys Be”
  • Then they came back and broke the record of most sold albums sold in a week by having 80,000 with their newest release “Love & Letter”. A title that was previously held by TAEMIN who is a well respected veteran of the Kpop music industry. Sales like that are on the same level as TVXQ, Super Junior, BTS, BigBang and EXO!
  • They won the ‘ World Rookie Award’ at the Gaon Kpop Charts Music Awards.
  • They won ‘Rookie of the Year’ at the Golden Disk Awards.
  • They won the ‘New Artist Award’ at the Seoul Music Awards.
  • They won ‘Best Rookie Group’ at the SBS Pop Asia Awards.
  • They won ‘Best Newcomer Group’ award at the Hello Asia K-Pop Award.
  • They won the ‘Most Appearance’ awards at the MBS Show Champion Awards.
  • They won the ‘Rookie of the Year Award’ at the Soompi Awards.
  • They won the ‘Rookie Award’ at the 7th  Philippine Kpop Awards.

And now they have just had their first win (040516) on the show that all Idols crave to win the most!

Being paired against Vixx, Block B, Twice and Jeong Eun Ji and STILL winning is an amazing feat!

I cried alongside them as they struggled to keep their composure passing the microphone from hand to hand as they broke down into tears. Our boys worked so hard and sacrificed so much to succeed and they finally proved to the world that they can. 

We should all be proud Carats.
We should all stay proud Carats.

We all helped in making this possible by buying albums, streaming songs, watching MV’s and blowing up Social Media. 

I feel like all of us Carats were on the stage accepting the award too.

We did it guys, we all did it.

Secret continued:  Although 1989 WAS different, I still enjoyed it UNTIL those Grammy Sessions where she pandered to the voters and practically groveled for their votes. It became really evident that Taylor is most focused on winning and being the ‘best.’ As a lifelong fan it’s hard for me to say this, but, she is not an artist. If awards and record-breaking didn’t exist, she would not be making music. You know who the true artists are? Mariah Carey, Prince, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Janet Jackson, Dolly Parton, who have all never won Album of the Year and STILL make music (those who are alive) and stay humble, stay true to themselves, and to their fans. They didn’t go home, cry, decide to make a new album that resembled nothing they had done before, and then sit in a room of Grammy voters and practically beg for votes.

Hi! Can i request for a scenario with Blackpink's Jennie with Idol AU? Thank you!

This Is Our Song

❄Pairing: Jennie x Idol!Reader

❄Genre: romance, AU

❄Warnings: swearing

~🌸~🌸~🌸~🌸~🌸~🌸~🌸~🌸~🌸~🌸~

(Jennie’s POV)

“Once again, folks, the group with the most medals at this years ISAC gets the chance to do a collab with one of the following idols.” My heartbeat quickens as I wait for their name to appear on the big screen. Besides the fans, they are my only reason for actually trying to get gold medals in each event we’re placed in.

“G Dragon.” The male rapper, whose smile paralyzes many, shows up on the screen. Some of his hit songs, such as Fantastic Baby, Crooked, Good Boy, and WHO YOU? play.

“Shinhwa.” Of course the longest running kpop boy band would be featured at an event as big as this. The music videos for Venus, This Love, and Crazy flash across the screen. The screams from the crowd only get louder and louder as each soloist or group is announced. Psy, IU, and Wonder Girls are the last three idols to be declared before THEY show up.

“And the final idol the winner of ISAC can collab with is…. (Y/N)!” There they are.

(Y/N), the quickest kpop idol to ever become famous, besides Yeeun from Wonder Girls. They were able to debut right after they auditioned, making them the youngest kpop idol to ever debut at lightning speed. After their debut, they instantly won awards such as Best New Artist and Best Music Video with their debut hit (insert random song name here). The first time I ever saw them, I fell in love with them. The way that they sang, danced, and smiled, I couldn’t help falling for them.

“Jennie, what’s the matter?” Rose asks me.

“Yeah, why is your face so red?” Lisa comes up from behind me and pokes me on the cheek. Gosh, this is so embarrassing. I’ve never felt this way before I saw (Y/N).

“Hey, who do we want to collab with if we win the prize?”

“Who said we’re going to win, Jisoo?” Lisa asks with a teasing smile.

“I kind of want to collab with G Dragon.” Rose says.

“I saw that one coming.” Lisa rolls her eyes. “How about Psy? He seems cool and he’s got the dance moves to back that up!”

“Hey, what about (Y/N)?” I finally manage to say. In a flash, they all turn towards me with bright smiles.

“That’s a great idea!” Jisoo gushes. “I’ve always wanted to work with them. Ever since I first heard their song (song title).”

“Alright, let’s win and earn ourselves that collab with (Y/N)!” Lisa strikes a victory pose. My smile widens and my heart rate speeds up. To think that my dream of singing with (Y/N) could come true within a matter of hours makes me feel all funny inside. I wonder what song we would sing together if we do win. Maybe some kind of love song? (Y/N) is a songwriter as well, so maybe they can write a song for only us to sing? Just imagine it; the infamous (Y/N) writing a song for me and only ME.

I take a deep breath and let it all out before giving my girls a determined look. “Okay, here’s our game plan…”

-(Timeskip brought to you by: Jennie’s love for the reader)-

“BlackPink is currently in the lead with a gold in the 60 meter sprint, a silver in the archery competition, and a silver in rhythmic gymnastics. Following up, we have Seventeen with three silvers, and Gfriend with a silver and a bronze medal.” I hear over the announcements. Next up is the 400 meter relay. I stand at the ready, double checking to see if the girls are in place. Our order for the relay is Jisoo, Rose, Lisa, and then me. We need at least one more gold in order to assure ourselves that we will get first place and not Seventeen. “Okay, ladies, let’s get ready for the 400 meter relay!” The crowd cheers. I see a few girls from the other groups stretching, their faces look like they’re made of pure steel. I, on the other hand, am not so nonchalant. My nerves feel like they’re going crazy.

“Hey, Jennie, calm down. We got this! We’ll do great!” Lisa gives me a light pat on the back.

“Thanks, Lisa.” I force a smile on my face. “Now go get ready, and make sure you run with everything you’ve got.”

“Yes, ma’am!” She jogs over to her spot and waits patiently.

“On you marks, get set, go!” I hear over the intercom. My breathing picks up. Jisoo makes her way around the course, handing off the baton to Rose. She’s in third place right now. Rose’s able to pick up the pace, landing us in second place when she hands the baton off to Lisa. Here comes our trump card. Lisa starts off slow, but she eventually speeds up, passing by Yuju from Gfriend as she does. When she reaches me, she hands me the baton while yelling “go, Jennie, go!” I start off fast and sprint all the way to the finish.

“And in first place we have.. BlackPink!” The announcer calls as I make my way across the finish line. The crowd erupts into a fit of cheers, and the girls surround me while screaming out of pure excitement.

“We did it! We did it!” Lisa screams while jumping up and down.

“Collab with (Y/N) here we come!” Jisoo says with the biggest grin. Dammit… my heart’s going haywire again. Oh gosh, what am I going to do when I meet them?

(Reader’s POV)

I sit in the audience in a disguise as I watch the events of ISAC unfold. Wow, BlackPink are really going at it with the awards. I look around the field, checking to see what each and every group is doing. A certain black-haired girl, however, catches my attention. Jennie from BlackPink. I can feel a blush slowly making its way to make cheeks. This girl… I swear. The first time I saw her onstage at MAMAs was the moment I fell in love with her.

“And the winner of this year’s ISAC is…” I hear a drum roll go off somewhere in the distance. Man, what a competition! It’s my first year going to an ISAC competition, and I do have to say that it’s way better in real life than on screen. “BLACKPINK!” I look up in an instant, and start to cheer and clap for the four girls. “BlackPink, who would you like to do a collab with?” I sit and wait in anticipation. I hope they say my name. I would really like it if I could do a collab with them, specifically Jennie.

Jennie takes the mic and gives the crowd a sly smile. Before she announces who they want to collab with, however, one of my guards comes up behind me, taps me on the shoulder, and motions for me to come with him. I nod at him, looking behind me one last time before following after him.

(Jennie’s POV)

I look up into the crowd, wondering where (Y/N) could be. “BlackPink, who would you like to do a collab with?” The announcer asks the four of us. I step up and take the mic from him, making the crowd cheer as I do. Flashing everyone a smile, I open my mouth to tell everyone the idol’s name.

“The person we would like to collab with is…” To add a bit of dramatic effect, I pause and watch as some people writhe in their seats, impatiently waiting for the answer. A few people scream out “tell me” while others sit there with a scornful look. “(Y/N)!” The crowd erupts into a fit of cheers.

“I’m glad you chose me.” I hear a voice say over the intercom. “Jisoo, Lisa, Rose and… Jennie.” I look in the direction that the voice is coming from, finding myself come face-to-face with an angel.

“(Y/N)…” Their name slips from my mouth. I see a faint blush spread across their cheeks as they smile in my direction. God, I swear I was just blessed by the sight of a goddess.

“I’m happy you guys chose me, and I can’t wait until we collab together!” The girls all turn to me with a look of expectation, but I’m too busy gawking at (Y/N) to notice. I remain like that for a few more seconds until Lisa nudges me with her shoulder. I turn to look at her, and she nods her head towards (Y/N). Understanding what she means, I fumble around with the microphone.

“Oh! Uh… Same here! We were sort of hoping that we could write the song together?” The girls look at me with a raise eyebrow.

“We? I’m sorry, but are we missing something?” Jisoo asks in a teasing manner. I feel a blush creeping onto my cheeks.

“W-well… you see…” Everyone breaks out into a harmony of “aww”s. I look up at (Y/N) and see them bite their lip due to how flustered they are. They’re so cute!

“Y-yeah! And while we’re at it, how about we do a duet together?” (Y/N) makes their way towards me. I can feel my heart pounding out of my chest as my smile widens. All of my dreams are suddenly coming true, and in a few seconds, I can feel myself falling more and more for this angelic being in front of me.

“I’d like that.”
