Adele to Beyoncé: “The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my Black friends feel, is empowering”

WOW. Now *that* was a speech. Did Adele just turn down that Grammy award, or did she just dedicate it to Beyoncé? Either way, it was totally incredible. And Adele is right: Beyoncé easily deserved to win, especially after so many years of Grammy snubs.

It doesn’t matter where I come from. I know who I am.

Just threw this together in recent events.

I appreciate that some people wish to express their love for other’s art by sharing it, just don’t go about it the wrong way.

Reblog, don’t repost.

Artists have the right to the work they create and where it is shown. If you respect their efforts then you’d share it properly.

Giving credit is lovely and all but it doesn’t justify the repost, unless the artist explicitly gives you permission.

If your desire to put their art in your own account is greater than the artist’s wishes…c’mon, let’s be honest: You don’t actually care that much. Especially if you need to emphasize your account is famous, which just indicates that your collection is more important than the art you supposedly respect and adore.

Don’t get me wrong, losing your account isn’t nice, but if you’re posting large amounts of artist’s content without their permission, then it’s carelessness on your part. The pain you feel for losing your account is the same pain an artist feels when they see their art taken.

Might be a good idea to read up on Instagram’s Terms & Conditions too, it isn’t pretty that’s for sure. They are entitled to do whatever they wish with your account, and if you’re receiving multiple copyright take-downs from different artists, that’s why Instagram see it fit to ban you. So be careful.

Thanks for reading chaps.
