It’s dark and steam rises from the depths.

These plains are arid and desolate.

I haven’t seen any sign of life for miles.

Time seems to stand still here.

Has it been a week, month or even a year?

No one to talk to, the sun never sets.

It just beats down and chars my skin,
burning away my flesh.

I don’t know how I got to this place.

I must’ve wander too far.

Or did my sins entrap me here?

I thought I had a good heart.

This land has become my home now.

I see no escape in sight.

I just limp and drift over these plains, wishing for it to be night.

BTS BBMAs

So I was just thinking. Look how nervous Jimin has been the entire day! I mean he almost didn’t smile and when he did it was just a small one and I know there are people who are making ridiculous jokes about Jimin hating White people(stop making those damn jokes, they’re not funny)

I think he was really, really, really nervous because after they won the Award(SO DAMN PROUD) he was smiling the entire time, like always, he returned to his adorble(sexy) self! 

And Namjoon was amazing translating and speaking English, he is a true leader but we already knew that of course but damn I’m just so proud and what about J-Hope and his enthusiasm about everything, I just sat there enjoying the way he was enjoying his time there. JK omg he was adorable with his rock signs the entire time and boy he looked dashing in his suit. Taehyung, our tae tae, he well looked amazing and the way he kept sticking to his precious V sign. Vogue.com choose him as best dressed for a reason, damn…

Jin, well the third guy on the left….. enough said right?! He looked sharp like always and sweetie just keep doing your flying kisses we love them. Now I’m ending with my Bias, Min Yoongi..damn boy he slayed in his outfit, I just, well he blew my mind when he stepped on that carpet, he looked mighty fine and the way he was smiling the entire time, boy did he make me melt!! 

So to sum it all up, they looked awesome, they were awesome, they are awesome and most importantly they had fun oh and let’s not forget they got an Billboard music award….

anonymous asked:

I don't like comparing the boys as solo artists but Louis literally has the most listenings on JHO than other boys on their songs , currently , probably Harry's sign of the times might surpass that but still I'm v proud at Louis who used to have the least solos while in 1D and he's killing it now

Awn really? I never keep up with numbers. I’m so proud of him ❤

harry styles track by track aesthetic.
  • meet me in the hallway: wandering the streets at two am on a thursday morning. rain hitting against the windows. half remembered dreams. laying in bed with your headphones on.
  • sign of the times: the last warm day of the year. too hot coffee. sitting outside of a party listening to the muffled music playing coming through the door.
  • carolina: the hottest day of the year. dive bars. the feeling of being in the middle of a crowd at a concert with everyone singing along. a cold beer.
  • two ghosts: growing up. sitting on the roof of your house and crying. pretending to not notice an ex when you walk by them on the street. missing someone.
  • sweet creature: driving with the windows down on the first day of summer. seeing your loved ones for the first time in a long time. iced tea. petting your dog.
  • only angel: the build up right before you kiss someone you're into. walking down a city street. that sweet spot when you're drinking and you feel like you can fly.
  • kiwi: heartbeat going a little too fast. being on a roller coaster right before the drop. going to a twenty-four hour diner with your friends and laughing too loud.
  • ever since new york: watching the sunset. saying goodbye. the moment in between being asleep and being wide awake after a good night's sleep. sitting in your friend's backyard staring at the stars.
  • woman: ducks.
  • from the dining table: sitting on the floor with your knees against your chest. staring at your cell phone and waiting for a text. the day you realize all the holiday lights have been taken down. realizing that this chapter in your life is over.

Harry Styles doesn’t just want to be a rock star – he wants to be the rock star. And on his superb solo debut, the One Direction heartthrob claims his turf as a true rock & roll prince, a sunshine superman, a cosmic dancer in touch with his introspective acoustic side as well as his glam flash. He avoids the celebrity-guest debutante ball he could have thrown himself – instead, he goes for a intimately emotional Seventies soft-rock vibe. No club-hopping or bottles popping – it’s the after-hours balladry of a 23-year-old star wondering why he spends so much time in lonely hotel rooms staring at his phone. Harry digs so deep into classic California mellow gold, you might suspect his enigmatic new tattoos that say “Jackson” and “Arlo” refer to Browne and Guthrie.

“You can’t bribe the door on your way to the sky,” he warns early on in “Sign of the Times,” but the sky is where he’s aiming, and his sheer brazen confidence is dazzling – he never sounds like he’s trying too hard or scrounging for cred, which is where boy-band alumni usually screw up their solo records. The whole album has the personal yet witty spirit of the cover photo, where a topless Harry has a moment of doubt and pain in a bathtub full of pink unicorn tears. (His original title was Pink, because it’s “the only true rock & roll color.”) He spends a lot of the album wet, actually – whether it’s tears, other bodily fluids, or just “candy dripping on me till my feet are wet.”

Harry’s soft-rock fetish won’t surprise fans of One Direction gems like “Olivia” or “Stockholm Syndrome,” but this is the first time we’ve heard Sweet Baby Styles run with it for a whole album. The songs he tipped in advance didn’t play coy about his old-school inspirations – the Badfinger hook of “Ever Since New York,” the “Blackbird” guitar of “Sweet Creature,” the way “Sign of the Times” tweaks Queen and Bowie in candelabra mode – yet they all sound like him, playful and tender in equal measure. In most of these songs, he mourns a dead-end relationship, the kind where “comfortable silence is so overrated,” and you can hear that he’s been binging on singer-songwriter confessionals from Harry Nilsson’s Nilsson Schmillson to Taylor Swift’s Red. “Meet Me In The Hallway” sets the tone – a touch of John Lennon echo in his voice, a touch of Jimmy Page in the acoustic guitar – as he pleads like a love junkie craving a fix. “Carolina” rides a tropical low-rider summer groove, while the lovelorn “Two Ghosts” could pass for vintage Bread. “Woman” could be a lost slow-jam duet between Prince and Joe Walsh, as Harry asks, “Should we just search romantic comedies on Netflix and see what we can find?”

He dabbles in hard rock raunch with “Kiwi” (“She worked her way through a cheap pack of cigarettes/Hard liquor mixed with a bit of intellect”) and “Only Angel.” Yet he sounds brassiest, most confident, most himself when he gets vulnerable. He ends with “From the Dining Table,” an acoustic lament where he wakes up alone in yet another hotel room. (“Played with myself, where were you?/I fell back asleep and was drunk by noon/I’ve never felt less cool.”) Through it all, he manages to steer clear of all the traps that ordinarily sabotage a boy-band star’s solo move. But as the whole album proves, there’s not a thing ordinary about this guy. - Rolling Stone
