To be Rock n Roll you Have to Make everyone a little Uncomfortable

This summer, I cut my hair short. The shortest it’s ever been. And do you want to know why I did it? Because it was hot this summer, and I always say yes to adventure. That’s truly the long and..ahem…short of it.
A lot of women have shorn their locks this year, all for various reasons. Some out of convenience like me, some for deeper meanings in search of personal change. Some ladies are doing it simply out of defiance to show the world that a woman’s hair does not define her worth or beauty.
It’s amazing when you are in the public eye how passionate people can get about small changes like this. Especially on the net, the name calling, sexist comments and the mean, judgmental attacks on my gender and sexuality. All because I cut a few inches off my hair. And in the meantime most of my male friends right now are growing their mops out down to they asses! It’s just hair, it grows and gets cut. And the reason I’m addressing this issue is because there’s this misconception that your hair, what you wear, how skinny you are, your social status etc…defines your worth and your beauty. To that I’d like to say that my short hair was a test and some of you passed, and some of you failed because This could not be further from the truth. Your worth and your beauty is measured by your heart. It’s Your ability to accept yourself and others for their uniqueness, and really, being a good human is what makes you beautiful. I’ve been friends,dated and have had trists with a few handfuls of people. I’ve fallen for people who aren’t “traditionally and marketed as” beauty, and have considered them sexy and fucking amazing looking because of their bold, spunky, golden heart. I’ve also had close contact with our ‘traditional, socially accepted as beautiful people’ … and the truth is … it doesn’t matter how long your hair , your skinny waist or glowing skin… if you’re an asshole nobody wants to fuck, love or have you in their circle! The most beautiful people that I’ve kissed and that I’ve have had in my inner circle… are the rebels… the people that are defiantly being them, dressing like the want to, wearing their hair like they want to, getting tats, piercings, or none of those things. Just owning who you are is seriously the most sexy and beautiful thing you will ever do! And for me personally…this is what attracts me to someone.
I hope that everyone goes on Facebook and checks out every foul comment people are making about my hair. I hope every little girl and little dude reads this. I’m here to tell you that there’s always going to be people who will criticize you, judge you and are going to be downright cruel to you for the way you look sometimes. But when this happens you have to remember that You are ‘Rock n Roll’. You are not a pop star or a porn star where your worth is measured by your youth and your looks…. you Are Rock n Roll because you make everyone uncomfortable and are unapologetically yourself, you walk into a room with your head high and Own it, you dress yourself the way you want and you follow your dream at all costs with no backup plan!
Let everyone say what they want. But the only reason someone will troll you about your amazingness is because they are insecure and/or are dinosaurs who have no clue how to exist in 2017. Be you. Love you. Because I love you and we Stand Out together.

And P.S. do not feel sorry for me about any ridiculous comments that have been thrown my way… be sorry for the people that posted them… poor souls, I only give them love and encouragement to find who they are inside and not just own it .. but “Rock n Roll own it”

Love,
Lzzy Hale

Being in the presence of a Beatle, as anyone who has ever done it will tell you, can make you feel a curious mixture of wild anticipation and mild anxiety. Add to that the fact that I was playing with one of the Beatles at twenty-four years old, and you’re halfway to recognising the situation I found myself in.

The first thing that I noticed about Paul McCartney was how much attitude he has as soon as he picks up his bass. You can see his total command of the instrument. I heard it too, and at deafening volume, as he stood looking at his amp and went BWOOOMFV! with one note. It was the best bass sound I’d ever heard, and the loudest. We kicked into ‘Twenty Flight Rock’, which I’d managed to work out the night before, and it took every bit of resolve I had not to shout, ‘Holy fuck! That’s Paul McCartney, singing right there in front of my face! Does everybody else realise that that is Paul McCartney … standing right there in front of my face?’ Luckily I held it together enough not to do that, and just tried to make my playing sound as authentic and fifties rock ’n’ roll as possible. At one point Paul asked me if I knew ‘I Saw Her Standing There’, and I tried to keep a straight face as I said, ‘Yeah, I think so.’ Then he asked me matter-of-factly if I fancied singing the harmony. A voice in my head started screaming, ‘You mean John Lennon’s part? I’M … GOING … TO BE SINGING … JOHN LENNON’S PART?’ But I just nodded and said, ‘OK … I’ll give it a go.’ The next thing I know, me and Paul McCartney are facing each other, singing, ‘I saw her standing there.’ I couldn’t really believe it was happening, but I made the most of it. I got brave and suggested ‘Things We Said Today’. He counted it off and away we went. I thought it sounded very good.

It’s always been you Part 5

You and Bucky had instantly clicked as soon as you arrived at the Avengers Facility, and soon became best friends. He trusted you implicitly and ever since heard you sing, he felt himself falling faster as the days rolled on. So when you start to pull away from him, he feels betrayed and upset. Thinking it’s something to do with him and his past.

Little did he know that it was nothing to do with his past, but your shame in your body, your feelings of self-loathing and your ever growing love for your best friend.

‘SHOT THROUGH THE HEART

AND YOU’RE TO BLAME-

Darlin, you give love, a bad name’

 The music kicks in and you’re automatically dragged back to your performing days. You’re turned away from the growing audience. Ruffling your hair to make you look a bit more rock n roll, you smile to yourself, silently admitting how much you’ve missed this. You’ve missed moving in time with the music, swaying your hips to the beat sexily and holding the microphone in your hand like it’s an extension of you.

 ‘An angel’s smile is what you sell,

You promise me heaven, then put me through hell,

Chains of love got a hold on me,

When passions a prison, you can’t break free’

You turned around when the verse starts, loosening up as you do so, your voice oozing sex appeal. The crowd of people at the party, especially your fellow team mates, filled the dance floor, dancing and singing along. Their eyes glued to you as you strutting around the stage, working the crowd just like you used to, slipping straight back into old habits.

‘Oh, you’re a loaded gun, yeah,

Oh, there’s nowhere to run,

No one can save me,

The damage is done,’

You pointed your finger gun at Tony and pretended to shoot him, sending him sexy, but friendly wink as he starts laughing at you, knowing exactly what you’re doing. You change your gaze to Bucky, who is stood at the back of the group, with the same look in his eyes that he gave you earlier at the tower. You knew what that look was now, Lust. And the way he was clenching his jaw, hell, you would have let him take you then and there. His darkened, clouded eyes burned into you, and you knew you were done for. You carried on with the song, moving provocatively, knowingly playing with him. You thought the poor guy’s jaw was going to grind into a pulp with how taught it was.

The guitar solo came up and the lead guitarist moved closer to you. You were back to back and you slid your way down to the floor, on to your knees. He turned around and continued the solo like that in front of you, with you in a compromising position. The crowd of people were going crazy, cheering and hollering for you, you even caught a few wolf whistles, which made you giggle and blow kisses to the offenders. You got up off your knees and finished the song, egging the crowd on to join in and have a good time. The room went nuts and you thanked them all for their applause, searching the sea of people for those piercing blue, now navy eyes, when you couldn’t find them, you tried to hide your disappointment and headed back to the group.

Tony just giggled as you sat down. All of the team were simultaneously ogling you, and smirking.

“What?” you ask as you bring your cold drink to your lips.

“They’re just feeling the call of siren is what they’re doing.” Tony quipped sending you into a fit of giggles.

“I wasn’t even being that sexy” you said between laughs.

“Oh bullshit Y/L/N, you almost made me cum in my pants, let alone those horny bastards” he joked, nodding his head in the direction of the rest of the team, sending you into a full on belly laugh.

“Yo-, You we-, You were amazing Y/N. Damn, you were good” Steve stammered, running his hands through his hair nervously, and breaking the ice, his face flushing with a slight red tint.

“Holy fucking shit girl, your voice gave me an eargasm, fuck.” Nearly tripping over his words, they flew out of Sams mouth.

“Woah kid, that took balls.” Clint said from behind you, he must have joined them while you were singing, you gave him a hug, and carried on looking for the only person who really mattered to you at this point.

“He’s outside. Probably gone to crack one out at you practically eye-fucking him the whole song” Natasha smirked at you, noticing you looking for him, shouting across the table.

You stood up real fast and walked out onto the patio into the cold of the night, goose bumps appearing on your exposed skin. You stopped when you noticed him looking over the railing at the vast gardens of the expansive building. You stood in the middle of an archway for a moment, wondering what to say to him, your eyes burning into the back of his head. He turned around, feeling your stare on him and walked towards you with purpose.

“Why did you lea-“ you were cut off by his lips, crashing against yours with such force that you nearly fell over. You pulled your arms around his neck, stabilising you. His hands flew to your face as he deepened the kiss, and then fell to your ass giving it a squeeze. Your hands roamed his hair as he pulled you closer, putting your bodies flush together. You felt the bulge through his trousers graze your thigh and all the nerves in your body swam to in between your legs. He pulled away all too soon for your liking and rested his forehead on yours.

“I had to leave because I couldn’t stand seeing the guys look at you like that. I couldn’t control myself. And, if I’d have stayed in that room for one more second with you looking at me like that, I would have fucked you in front of all those people, and I don’t think you would have approved.” He let out a small laugh. His now messy hair fell over your cheek, tickling it. The thought of him taking you, claiming you, in front of that full crowd made you blush.

“Oh really, Sergeant?’ you looked up at him innocently through your full, wispy lashes and bit your lip suggestively, teasing him, and testing the waters.

“Stop. Don’t do that to me, doll.” His tone almost like a warning.

“Stop what? Stop this?” you bit your lip again and Bucky pulled you in for another mind blowing, universe halting kiss. More needy and desperate than the first. His hand trailed up your body and landed on your chest, softly kneading your breast, feeling your sensitive nipple harden under his touch. You moaned into his mouth from the sudden contact and he growled in response, feeling it vibrate against your lips, the feeling at the bottom of your abdomen grew stronger. He pulled away and grabbed your hand, dragging you through the crowd, into the lobby of the grand building.

“Bucky, where are we going?” you squeezed his hand and he pulled you into an embrace, nuzzling his face into your neck to find your sweet spot, kissing and nibbling at it, driving you crazy.

“Home, baby girl. I’m not letting you out of my sight tonight,” he whispered into your ear. He spoke the words in such a seductive and domineering tone, that they went straight to your core. You clenched your thighs together in hope to get some relief, but no such luck. You start to feel your arousal seep into your panties and instantly knew you’d been defeated.

‘Shit, I’m in deep.’
