BTS Reaction to a Female Drummer Joining the Band

Jin: I think Jin would think that having a female drummer play would be super unique and cool. You don’t really see a lot of girl drummers now-a-days, so he’d think that you are super talented to make it this far in your career.

Suga: Honestly, and I won’t sugar-coat it; Suga would probably think you are a badass. In a good way of course! I mean, having to fight through all the social norms to prove your passion for music would make Yoongi admire you (and it might even turn him on a little, just saying)

J-Hope: J-Hope would think that having a female drummer in their band would be really fun and he would love it 100%. Not only are you talented and driven towards music, but you’d also understand how they feel abut music as well, making you special in J-Hope’s sparkling eyes.

Rap Monster: Oh, this boy would be all about that. He’d find you to be tough and independent for breaking gender stereotypes; something that Namjoon would admire. He’d always want to talk with you and get input on certain music arrangements/lyrics since you have a niche for music as well.

Jimin: This cutie would want to be your best friend out of all the other members of the group. Not only because he’s a social butterfly to begin with, but also because he’d find your drive and passion fascinating. Jimin would look up to you as someone who works hard and plays harder.

V: Like Jimin, he would want to talk with you constantly to learn more about your music experience. He’d want to know why you picked the drums and how that’s impacted your life. V would also probably want you to feel at home with the other members, so he’d act as a guide for you until you get comfortable.

Jungkook: He’d admire you from afar. He’d be kind of off putting at first, rejecting you but secretly he thinks that you’re super cool. He’d want to be close to you like Jimin is, but he’d be too shy to approach you. After all, you’re extraordinarily hot when you play the drums like that, and he’d feel intimidated (just a little bit).

Well, well, well… They are back!

Whom am I talking about, in thing plethora of comebacks? Why Monsta X of course!

Monsta X is a group of 7 super talented members!

Last comeback, they came out with “All in”, a great  song with an awesome(yet super confusing) plot driven music video, claiming that it was only Part 1.

So when i heard that they are coming back i got extremely excited to see the continuation of the story and to hear their new album.

Aaaaaaand to be honest, at first i was a bit disappointed with the new music video, probably because i was expecting something very similar to ‘All in’, a more fluid continuation.

However, when I saw the music video a few more times, it had really grown on me, The shots are great and there were some links to the previous music videos, but i guess i am a bit to stupid to understand right away!

The ending, however… still feels very random.

The song too is great! I really like Fighter, in fact, i love all the songs on this album! 

And the members… oh my lord are they amazing!

First we have our leader: Shownu

He is a great dancer and his stage presence just slays everyones existence! Just watch him on Hit the Stage for some solo dance action(by solo i mean without the other members). So, lets not sleep on Shownu please!

Then we have Kihyun:

This boy is a cutie with amazing vocals! Yes, his vocals are truly great! I feel guilty for saying this, but there are times where i can see why Monsta X is Kihyun and friends. And, in my opinion, that is not always a bad thing. After all, there are songs which are truly amazing for him and choruses which just fit his voice perfectly!

Of course, we also have Jooheon:

Ok so.. This rapper kills me! And not just because of his skills and voice, but also his persona! He just seems like such a fun guy who can kill with aegyo! He lights up the room and then performs and suddenly everything changes and he becomes just unbearably amazing! And lets be real, i find his sexiness no joke! He just seems like a manly man with a great twist aka aegyo.

Then theres I.M:

Our precious, precious maknae! His raps, great and his singing though… so sweet! Just watching him, makes me wanna hug him, but then he gets all cool and spectacular and all i can think is “WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO OUT OF MY LEAGUE!” He also looks great with the new hair!

Lets not forget Hyungwon, of course!

Originally posted by minyeossi

So, heres the thing, i admit to the fact that at first, Hyungwon’s look slightly disturbed me. It’s just that his lips and jaw just seem so out of sync with his face… It just seemed like he failed having botox, and so his face got slightly deformed. However, as i saw more of Monsta X and so a lot of their interview I realised one thing: Hyungwon need to be protected at all cost! I believe that its okay if someone does not immediately get attracted to him, but its never okay to hate a human being for that! After all, he is just so sweet, so kind, so graceful that i fell in love with him! Hyungwon is a beautiful human being!(PS, can we please ask for some more lines for this angel?)

Then there is…. Minhyuk!

Originally posted by chiqkihyun

Minhyuk is a precious cinnamon role. He is so cute, so sweet, it destroys all Monsta X fans! He just speaks and everyone was to take this puppy and wrap him in blankets! And just like for Hyungwon, can this beautiful human get more that a mere 13 seconds please? 

Also, he has such a cute bromance with the leader, Shownu.

Originally posted by kpop-trashbag

Bromance and fanservice at its best!

And … for last… we have… Wonho.

Originally posted by skele-chim

Did I ever think id find a man in a crop top hot? Nop, but things change… drastically.

Real talk now.

I really hope that Wonho doesn’t mind being so sexualised, I really do. Because sometimes it gets a bit out of hand. After all, when is he finally going to be able to do things fully clothed?

Originally posted by kihqun

He doesn’t even get to make stuff with clothes on! And like i said, if he enjoys it, good for him, you go boy! But if it is done against his will, then it is unfair. I just really don’t want to hear, that he is forced to do the whole sexy thing for the rest of his life. 

Originally posted by wonhuff

But other than that, Wonho just seems.. special. There is an aura around him of a guy comfortable with what he is, who has experienced some things( and he has since he was like 14, which for me is totally fine. After all, in my country it is not uncommon to have a drink or smoke at 14-15. In fact, most in the end live a typical life). I do however, want to see a bit more of personality from him. Cause although he seems comfortable, I think he might just be comfortable about his own little safe zone as Wonho, rather than as Shin Hoseok. I don’t know whats going on in his head, but please don’t kill me! I love Wonho and Shin Hoseok, but the is my opinion! But i think this doesn’t just apply to Shin Hoseok, but to many if not most idols and famous people in general.

So, this is the roundup of the groups members, The amazing members!

As a bonus, lets make a bit of a Monsta X spam!

Jennifer Aniston To Star In Anne Fletcher-Helmed ‘Dumplin’

Pic is a music-driven comedy in the vein of Pitch Perfect and Bring It On, and is based on the acclaimed Julie Murphy YA novel. The heroine is Willowdean, a confident, plus-sized, teen who is obsessed with all things Dolly Parton. To spite her mom (Aniston), Willowdean enlists some friends to join the local pageant.

Amazon buys Adam Driver, Rooney Mara, Rihanna music drama ‘Annette’

North American moviegoers will soon be treated to the sweet sounds of Leos Carax’s latest music-driven drama.

EW can confirm Amazon Studios has acquired U.S. and Canadian distribution rights for Annette, which stars Adam Driver (Girls), Rooney Mara (Carol), and Rihanna (Ocean’s Eight) in a tale revolving around a widower stand-up comedian whose 2-year-old daughter harbors a surprising talent.

Annette also marks Carax’s English-language debut after rising to prominence as a cult auteur on the international scene with films like Pola X, Boy Meets Girl, The Lovers on the Bridge, and a segment in the 2008 anthology Tokyo!

Variety reports Carax’s new project will use original songs by the art-rock band Sparks, formed by Ron and Russell Mael in 1971.

RELATED: The Most Controversial Movie Castings

Driver is currently starring on the last season of HBO’s Girls, while Mara has endured a busy year on the festival circuit thus far; Her David Lowery-directed drama A Ghost Story premiered at Sundance in January, followed by Terrence Malick’s Song to Song — in which she stars alongside Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, and Michael Fassbender — at SXSW last Friday. She will next reunite with her Lion director Garth Davis for the Mary Magdalene biopic later this year.

Rihanna’s planned role in the film does not mark the first for a world-renowned pop star in one of Carax’s works. He previously directed Australian icon Kylie Minogue in his quirky drama Holy Motors, which launched at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012.

Principal photography for Annette is scheduled to begin this spring, with Bruno Pesery and his Paris-based label Arena Films producing. Switzerland’s Vega, Japan’s Eurospace, and Belgium’s Wrong Men will co-produce.

I know I shouldn’t be but I’m a little bitter that The Get Down on netflix is only in the 70s rank on rotten tomatoes… like you know a heavily musical driven coming of age show about underprivileged teens in a 1970s new york city would be hella praised if it was about a bunch of crusty ass white people

The whole point of ever being a band for us is to create music. It’s cool to go and play live, it’s cool to get to see the world and do all these things, but really it’s about making new music. We’re driven by that, we’re not really gonna be a band if we’re not making new music.

fischy-felix  asked:

I was gonna ask you this anyway, but I guess it could work for Sleep over Saturday or whatever. ok so, when you write drabbles or fics or something, do you listen to music? I ask this because I probably listen to music at every minute of the day, but when it comes to writing, or editing, it's hard, or it interferes with the writing and turns to the mood the song im listening to is. if that makes sense. Does that ever happen to you?

yeah i listen to music! usually something chill, typically without lyrics (or incoherent words) so it doesn’t interfere with my thinking

i do tend to listen to different songs depending on what im writing, bc the mood thing happens with me too. i.e. sadder, slow music will result in angsty fics

otherwise i listen to some pretty hard rock like volbeat lol

im a very music driven person though yeah !

Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Stardust: Rock and roll legend David Bowie dies at 69

The cosmos has taken a legend. David Bowie, the rock and roll visionary whose career spanned six decades, died Sunday after a long battle with cancer. He was 69.

Bowie was among the primary innovators and showmen of rock ‘n’ roll for four decades. He didn’t just push the edge of the envelope. He often manufactured the envelope itself, with such creations as glam rock and Ziggy Stardust, the otherworldly representative of extraterrestrials; the post-apocalyptic Thin White Duke of the mid-1970s; and cutting-edge explorations into dance music (“Let’s Dance,” 1983), European electronic music and even guitar-driven speed metal (the poorly received band Tin Machine, which he fronted in the late 1980s).

While The Rolling Stones and The Beatles represented a certain kind of mainstream ideal, Bowie was the standard bearer for the unconventional, and one could argue that his blueprint has had more staying power when it comes to modern music. He told us we could be heroes, took us on otherworldly sonic odysseys and even proved Disco can be cool.

Bowie conceded he couldn’t change time, but Bowie, time and again, changed us.

MY FAVORITE PANTERA ALBUM

What it comes back to is the thing that it’s always been hardest for her detractors to believe: that Swift is the architect and auteur of her own career… both the art and the business of it. It didn’t matter that she wasn’t old enough to vote; she was old enough to drive pop culture, and do it her way. There were no Svengalis, or even stage moms. I remember talking with Andrea Swift early on, who struck me as not exactly Teri Shields when she assured me Taylor was self-driven: “Music was never my dream (for her). We were on a farm, and I had her sitting on a pony when she was 9 months old.‘
—  Chris William for Billboard on how Taylor Swift has always been self driven and made all the decisions for her career
