I Am The Best - 2NE1

2NE1 - now signed to Capitol Records - released their first single “I Am The Best” on Itunes under their new label. Please support the girls’ U.S. debut by purchasing the single here.

note: They’re still signed to YG but all U.S. promotions will be handled by the new label.

CL: I just wanted to let you guys know that we are all still here and we will always be one team, one family.

CL: Minzy, Bom, Dara will all be doing great things on their own and I will always love and support them.

CL: What we have to remember is that we made amazing memories for the last 7 years together and I wouldn’t have had it in any other way, with any other group of people.


annyeong, annyeong.

  • YG: I decided to disband 2NE1 because of Bom's mental health
  • Seungri: oh ok I totally believe you
  • Seungri: Bom unnie are you sick?
  • Bom: no not at all
  • Seungri: YG's got some explaining to do
2NE1: to anyone.

Hello bitches, you all follow me. Can’t nobody deny my charm and fire. After I blow a kiss, even my haters stutter as they say “I hate you”.

You think I’m the baddest female, only thinking “I am the best”, lifted above the rest. It’s not true. Sometimes you just gotta be you

I feel the most ugly when I’m missing you. I hope you’re not happy without me, that you just want to comeback home. Do you love me as much as I love you? I pretend that I don’t care, but every time you and I are together, I’m falling in love again.

If you feel lonely without me, just don’t stop the music and clap your hands. Please don’t cry when I go away, because it hurts me as well. 

Goodbye until we meet again. 

The 2NE1 criticism that I hate the most is that they weren’t good visuals (utter bullshit) and that they alienated the male market. You know what? That’s a good thing. It was nice having just one group that didn’t cater to the male gaze, that focused on female and personal empowerment and strong images and lyrics. 2NE1 offered an alternative to the fabricated images of many k-pop groups. They were real, their music was real. Lonely, Missing You and Ugly are just a few examples of vulnerable and painful songs with a sound and message that no one else has been able to achieve yet. I’m so going to miss 2NE1, the rule-breakers, the trend-setters. The ones that never shied away from bold fashion, from fierce stages, from letting loose on stage with gazes to the camera like they could set it on fire if they wanted to. I’m going to miss 2NE1, the girls who could just come out and perform great songs, many of which had 0% to do with relationships, and were instead all about having fun, independence, being free, following your dreams and dancing. I’m going to miss 2NE1 so much, especially in a world that badly needs true idols like them. But at the same time, I am so grateful for the time we had with them, and I hope their legacy will inspire future girl groups and girls and women around the world for many years to come. 

“Even if a long time passes by, we’ll still remember each other.: - 2NE1, Missing You


CL and Dara’s Letter to Blackjacks

How am I supposed to move on and be happy knowing 2NE1 could’ve had a comeback, yet it ended all of a sudden like this?

Enough with the ‘I saw this coming’ bullshit. Even the girls themselves never thought this would happen.

YG, man, you really screwed up.

Weird Crushes (uk comedians)

Top 5 UK comedians I have very weird crushes on for even stranger reasons.
- The judgement is real I know, apologies in advance
- Sometimes my mind makes me do retarded posts like this

1. Russell Howard 
Because his boyish scruffy hair and comforting adolescent humor (particularly about animals and his parents) gives me childhood nostalgia (plus I dig the lazy eye).   

2. Noel Fielding
Because apart from his rocking fashion sense or his unbelievably creative and limitless imagination…I love how shy he gets at being complimented (he’s such a softy). Now can we go skipping through the streets of Camden in skirts?

3. Ed Byrne
Because he’s a complete geek and his on and off screen friendship with Dara O'Briain is goals. I just want to sit down with him in an Irish pub and listen to all his stories (plus I’m a sucker for long hair).

4. Stephen Mangan
Because. Hair Basically. (I see a worrying trend here). BUT, he is extremely talented, so well spoken and is the type of fella you wouldn’t be afraid to take to a wedding. if you know what I mean  

5. Rhod Gilbert
Because I can relate to his cynical outlook on life, his constant (but totally valid) arguments on potatoes and his “I do what I want” Welsh attitude. Added bonus - he’s a little rough around the edges but a total sweetie at heart.
