“You see, if I was a guy and I was sitting here with a cigarette in my hand and grabbing my crotch and talking about how I make music because I love fast cars and fucking girls, you’d call me a rock star. But when I do it in my music and in my videos, because I’m a female - because I make pop music - you’re judgmental. You say that it’s distracting. I’m just a rock star.”

I don’t care who you are or who you stan, you NEED TO WATCH THIS RIGHT NOW.

Even if you don’t like kpop, if you have no idea who he is, please watch this.

For those of you who don’t know - this is Jo Kwon, a kpop idol; he started as a singer in a ballad group called 2AM, and he has also released solo albums. He’s always been a bit “different” in the kpop industry, he’s extremely out there and often dances to girl group songs and wears “girl” clothes. 

These past few weeks he has been a part of a show where he made a lot of cover songs, most of them of originally female performers (last week he performed a Byonce song and omg he was amazing). He has been getting a lot of hate for it, because people don’t understand him and think he’s a drag queen. He said last week that he’s not, that he’s just a performer and this is what he does - perform.

This week, on the last episode of the show, he performed Lady Gaga’s “Born this way”. You can see in his eyes how powerful the lyrics are to him (he also has that sentence tattooed on his back. And has a dog named Gaga lol). This performance is his way of saying “fuck you” to those haters. 

I love Jo Kwon with all my heart, and he keeps on inspiring me every single time. There aren’t many kpop idols like him, and he’s one of the most talented, hardworking and genuine people out there.

Please love and support him!

(and if you haven’t listened to his solo album I recommend Animal and I’m Da One because those songs are just amazing)
