‘getting his shit together’

his own label has been purposely holding him back and fucking him over for the past year. his mother was terminally ill for the majority of 2016 and just passed away 6 months ago.  every single card he’s been dealt since the break started in late 2015 has been horrible and his own team has been sabotaging him and purposefully trying to devalue his image, his brand, and his fans’ loyalty to him.

he’s been reacting and surviving as best he can. what a slap in the face to use language like ‘getting his shit together’ to put the burden for everything he’s been forced to deal with on him rather than on the people responsible for holding him back.

There’s a legitimate discussion that needs to be had about why Julie has such a hard time showing unconditional love and friendship between girls and seems fine showing it between boys, but:

Say what you will, the boy squad would never fucking do this. When Isak withdrew into himself, was clearly having a hard time–they may not have sat him down for an intense heart-to-heart, but they knew something was up, they asked him if he was okay. When Isak forgot Magnus’s birthday, they let it slide. When Isak tried to start a physical altercation with Mahdi, the dude didn’t even get mad about it. They were all concerned, because Isak didn’t seem like himself. And when he apologized, they forgave him immediately. And I know for a damn fact that if any of the boys had done what Sana had done, the first thing they would have done is ask why. In fact, setting aside some of the deeply problematic (if generally well-meaning) shit Isak said to her afterwards, he did ask her why, right off the bat. He did the thing. And he stepped up to defend her by taking the fall.

Hopefully in the show Sana will at least get some support from her family and Jamilla, but in the meantime imma let those Sana + boy squad + Evak headcanons rise like never before, because FUCK THIS.
