shame song

salvador sobral: *tries to pass an important message about helping refugees but isn’t allowed to bc it’s too political*

salvador sobral: *thanks his sister and the composer luis figueiredo for making the song, giving them all the credit*

salvador sobral: *can’t get excited during the voting bc of his heart condition but when his sister is singing on stage he flails adorably at her performance*

salvador sobral: *during the press conference always refers to THE SONG WINNING - NOT HIMSELF bc that’s it’s the song that really matters*

salvador sobral: *doesn’t consider himself a national hero, he just wants to sing and live a peaceful life, he just hopes the song can make a change*

salvador sobral: *makes a slightly bad worded speech directing at ALL POP MUSIC, and NOT just for Eurovision competitors*

amar pelo dois: *a song with no specified gender, no specified sexuality, just the simplicity and strength of emotions conveyed in song can be applied to almost anyone over the world if you empathize with it, uniting people with a language that not the majority of the world knows about*

tumblr salty people: dude this guy is an arrogant shit saying he’s better than everyone what does he know about eurovision it’s supposed to be glamorous and full of glitter how straight is this guy with his incestuous boring duet ballad that puts anyone to sleep

me: ……….

One of the reasons I admire Hayley Williams so much is that she calls out her own mistakes. On more than one occasion she said that Miz Biz is a girl-hate-girl slut-shaming song and she doesn’t agree with the lyrics at all anymore. She doesn’t try to hide it, she says, “I’m grateful for the mention, but this song doesn’t deserve this spot.”

I don’t know it just makes me happy seeing her being so honest about growth and change and putting the empowerment of other girls before the promotion of her band’s song.

I would just like to take a moment to applaud Ariana fCKING Grande. This is a girl who’s at the top on her game in the music industry, and literally does her best with everything she puts out. She keeps getting slut shamed because of her songs, the way she dresses. She keeps being assumed to be a certain way and she taKES NONE OF IT. WHAT DOES SHE DO? PUTS OUT A FREAKING FIERCE ASS INTERLUDE VIDEO ON HER TOUR, “NOT ASKING FOR IT, LADYLIKE, FEMALE, HUMAN, SEXY, (was only part of the message)”. Not only does she clap BACK HONEY, but he does it in a way to INSPIRE. Not only that, I love how she doesn’t NEED PROPS ON HER TOUR. It’s so simple and good because of HER DAMN VOICE IS EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND NOTHING ELSE. Most artists need to rely on heavy props, flashy performances to cover up their lack of vocal skills so people focus on something else, BUT NOT ARIANA GRANDE, BITCH.

Isak mumble raps fresh prince while hanging out in the kitchen and Even, cooking, hears it and absentmindedly joins in at “In west Philadelphia born and raised”, Eskild walks in to get something from the fridge hears the cue and turns around to face Even and say “You’re moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air”. The three of them rap the rest of the lyrics in sync and louder and louder until Linn pops her head in to the kitchen to scold all of them for making so much noise everyone beams at each other, shrugs and goes back to their own thing, Eskild leaves the kitchen with his drink, Even goes back to cooking and Isak goes back to texting as though nothing happened at all.

I love when 5H and LM like each other’s Instagram posts, especially when the post is about their music :)

I knew Moana wouldn’t win for best animated feature, but damn did it deserve to win at least for Best Original Song. “How Far I’ll Go” is such a beautiful, powerful, and inspiring song about finding yourself and and breaking limits to reach your dreams and achieve what you what you meant to do in your life. Moana was a gorgeous representation of Polynesian culture, a group that sadly doesn’t get enough exposure in the media. Lin-Manuel Miranda is so talented and passionate about his work, he really put all his heart in making Moana’s songs be memorable and enjoyable. Auli'i Cravalho is a fresh new talent that we haven’t seen in a long time with a lovely voice who is so humble. She’s only 16 and achieved a lot at a young age, performing at the Oscars and not letting her nerves get the best of her while she sang her heart out in front of millions of people. Watching interviews you can see how much Moana means to her and how grateful she was to bring such a strong and determined character to life. What a shame that the Academy didn’t see how great the song was and voted it for the standard Hollywood mediocrity. La La Land might have had a few decent songs, but it wasn’t as moving as Moana. All it was is an throwback to Old Hollywood that the critics ate up. Defend it all you want. It’s the truth, plain and simple.

I know this isn’t the end of Lin-Manuel’s Oscar journey. He has many projects in development, he’s still young and will get it soon and will join the EGOT club. Just you wait.

I know we all realize this. But apparently we don’t all realize this. “Closeted person does thing that seems straight” really isn’t unexpected. It’s what closeting is.
