And even though they may get frustrated…

They’re always offering a word of support or encouragement. (Maybe a compliment or two)

And they just make it so hard to believe in ships when obviously they all are the real OTP ~ OT7 GUYS!

So I am sorry to disappoint you but we must be going.

Cue Bodyguard soundtrack!

Beyoncé Knowles: 20 times Grammy Award winner, the second most honored female artist by the Grammys and the most nominated woman in Grammy Award history with 52 nominations. She has sold over 100 million records as a solo artist, making her one of the best-selling music artists of all time. RIAA recognized her as the Top Certified Artist of the 2000s decade. As of December 2015, Beyoncé has sold 16 million albums and over 47 million digital songs in the United States as a solo artist. Critics hail her as one of the best entertainers in contemporary popular music. Forbes magazine listed her as the most powerful female musician of 2015.

Taylor Swift: 10 time Grammy Award winner, at 20 she became the youngest person ever to win Album of the Year at the Grammys with Fearless, a country album and at 26 she became the only female solo act in history to receive that award twice with 1989, a pop album. She has sold 27.67 million albums (March 2015) in the United States, making her the seventh-largest-selling female artist. She has written every single song of every album she has ever released. She’s the only artist in history to have three consecutive albums sold more than 1 million copies in its first week. Swift owns the most awarded country album in music history (Fearless) and the most awarded pop album in music history (1989). This year, BMI will present Taylor Swift with an award bearing her name in recognition of her incomparable creative and artistic talent and influence on music lovers throughout the world. (This is only the second time in BMI’s 76-year history that the company has presented an award in someone’s name. The first was to Michael Jackson in 1990).

Adele: Academy Award Winner for best original song in a motion picture with Skyfall (2013) and 10 time Grammy Award Winner. She and Beyoncé hold the record of most Grammys won by a female artist in one night with six each. With 21 non-consecutive weeks at number 1 in the US, Adele broke the record for the longest number-1 album by a woman in Billboard history, beating the record formerly held by Whitney Houston’s soundtrack The Bodyguard.21 spent its 23rd week at number one in March 2012, making it the longest-running album at number one since 1985 and it became the fourth best-selling album of the past 10 years in the United States. 25 is the first album to sell more than 3 million copies in a week in Nielsen history, and only the second to surpass 2 million sold in a single frame. Adele is easily the best voice in music industry nowadays.

Beyoncé, Taylor, Adele, Gaga, Rihanna… You know one thing they all have in common? They make art maintaining true to themselves, they are unique in what they do, and that’s the key to their success. All these women can be successful at the same time in the same universe, crazy huh? Stop pitting women against each other.

On this day in music history: November 17, 1992 - “The Bodyguard - Original Soundtrack Album” is released. Produced by David Foster, Robert Clivilles, David Cole, Narada Michael Walden, L.A. Reid, Babyface, Daryl Simmons, BeBe Winans, Walter Afanasieff, Ian Devaney, Andy Morris, Danny Kortchmar, Charlie Midnight and Roy Lott, it is recorded from Mid 1991 - Early 1992. The album serves as the soundtrack for the hugely successful film starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. The film written by Lawrence Kasdan (“The Big Chill”, “The Empire Strikes Back”, “Body Heat”, “Raiders Of The Lost Ark”), is one of the first screenplays written by the Academy Award nominated screen writer, producer and director. Originally conceived as a film vehicle starring Diana Ross and Ryan O'Neal in the late 70’s, the script is stuck in development at Warner Bros for nearly two decades before it is finally made. With pop and R&B superstar Houston and Oscar winner Costner cast in the lead roles, the film is directed by Mick Jackson (“L.A. Story”). The accompanying soundtrack album features six tracks by Houston including the smash “I Will Always Love You”, which breaks the then current record of thirteen weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 set Boyz II Men’s “End Of The Road”. The album also features tracks by Curtis Stigers, Lisa Stansfield, Kenny G. & Aaron Neville, The S.O.U.L. System (featuring Michelle Visage), Joe Cocker (featuring Sass Jordan), and score composer Alan Silvestri. The soundtrack sells over forty four million copies worldwide, making it the biggest selling soundtrack of all time. The soundtrack wins three Grammy Awards including Record and Album Of The Year in 1994. “The Bodyguard” spends twenty weeks (non-consecutive) at number one on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 17x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

Taylor Swift's '1989' Heading Back to No. 1

After a two-week vacation from the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200, it appears Taylor Swift’s 1989 is heading back to the top of the chart.
While it’s too early to project how many units the album will earn in the week ending Feb. 1, industry sources seem confident that nothing will challenge 1989’s return to No. 1. It would mark 1989’s 10th week at No. 1.
Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ Hits 4 Million in U.S. Sales

The top 10 of the new Billboard 200 chart will be revealed on Wednesday, Feb. 4.

It’s not that often an album racks up 10 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It’s only happened 11 times since Nielsen Music began powering the chart with its point-of-sale data back on the chart dated May 25, 1991. And, in that span of time, only four women have logged 10 or more weeks at No. 1 with an album: Adele(21, 24 weeks), Whitney Houston (The Bodyguard soundtrack, 20 weeks), Alanis Morissette (Jagged Little Pill, 12 weeks) and Swift herself (Fearless, 11 weeks).

Next week’s highest debut looks to be Ne-Yo’s Non-Fiction, which may start with around 35,000 in overall album equivalent units. That sum might place the set toward the bottom of the top 10.

The single spent 14 weeks at the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, which at the time was a record. The single became Houston’s longest run at number one, smashing her previous record, which was three weeks with 1986’s, “Greatest Love of All.” It is also the longest running number one single from a soundtrack album.

Houston’s single sold approximately 400,000 copies in its second week on the summit, making it the best-selling song in a single week (taking the record from Bryan Adams’ “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You”). It broke its own record in the following three weeks, peaking at 632,000 copies in the week ended December 27, 1992, Billboard the issue date of January 9, 1993 (the week it broke its own record for most copies sold in a single week for any song in the Nielsen SoundsScan era).

On this day in music history: November 28, 1992 - “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 14 weeks, also topping the R&B singles chart for 11 weeks on December 5, 1992, and topping the Adult Contemporary chart for 5 weeks on December 19, 1992. Written by Dolly Parton, it is the biggest hit for the pop and R&B vocal superstar from Newark, NJ. Having established herself as a megastar in music, Whitney Houston sets her sights on the movies. She is hired to play the female lead opposite actor Kevin Costner (“Bull Durham”, “Field Of Dreams, "Dances With Wolves”) in “The Bodyguard”. Written by screenwriter and director Lawrence Kasdan (“The Big Chill”, “The Empire Strikes Back”, “Silverado”), the screenplay had been floating around in Hollywood for nearly fifteen years before it is finally made. When it comes time to record music for the soundtrack, Houston cuts “I Have Nothing”, “Run To You” and “Queen Of The Night”, three original songs penned for the film, a cover of Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman” and the hymn “Jesus Loves Me”. Whitney is to also record of a cover of Jimmy Ruffin’s Motown classic “What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted”, but is scratched when it’s discovered that it had been recorded by Paul Young for the film “Fried Green Tomatoes”, released while “The Bodyguard” is still filming. Costner suggests that Whitney record a cover of country superstar Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”. Parton writes the song in 1973 after splitting with her mentor Porter Wagoner. It hits number one on the Billboard Country singles chart in June of 1974. Dolly records it again in 1982 for the film “The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas”, taking it to the top of the country chart again. Producer David Foster re-arranges the song as an pop/R&B ballad, using Houston’s touring band led by musical director Rickey Minor to cut the basic track, with jazz saxophonist Kirk Whalum as the featured soloist. When Arista Records hears the finished track, they like it, but feel that the forty five second long a cappella intro might hurt the songs’ chance for radio play. Their fears are unfounded when it is released on November 3, 1992, becoming an instant smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #40 on November 14, 1992, it pole vaults to the top of the chart two weeks later, making the third highest jump to number one from outside the top ten in Billboard chart history from #12 to #1. The single sells over four and a half million copies in the US alone, driving the soundtrack album to 17x Platinum status, with “The Bodyguard” soundtrack shattering the worldwide sales record held by “Saturday Night Fever”. “I Will Always Love You” also wins two Grammy Awards for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Record Of The Year in 1994. After Houston’s untimely passing in February of 2012, the words “The Voice” and the title of her biggest hit are written on her epitaph. “I Will Always Love You” is certified 4x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

Okay, think about Hermione bringing her radio to school and having a bunch of the popular songs from the 1990′s and she specifically has The Bodyguard soundtrack, and Whitney’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ plays when they’re all studying in the common room, and Harry, Ron, Fred and George hear it.

And they lose their god damned minds.

Anytime they part from each other, they scream “aanDDd IIIIIIIIII WILLL ALWAYS….LOVE YOUUUUU” And Mcgonagall takes off 50 points from Gryffindor for incessant caterwauling in the halls. 

Taylor Swift's '1989' Going for 11th Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart

Taylor Swift’s blockbuster 1989 album is heading for an 11th week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart — tying Swift’s own Fearless for the diva’s longest-running No. 1 set.

Industry forecasters suggest 1989 may move around 95,000-100,000 album equivalent units in the week ending Feb. 8, which should keep the set at No. 1 for an 11th nonconsecutive frame.


The top 10 of the new Billboard 200 chart — which ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption — will be revealed on Wednesday, Feb. 11.

If 1989 clocks another week at No. 1, it will match the chart-topping run of Swift’s Fearless, which ruled for 11 weeks in 2008 and 2009.

Swift is only the second woman in the history of the Billboard 200 chart to earn two albums with at least 10 weeks at No. 1. Whitney Houston was the first, and she managed the feat three times: with her self-titled debut (14 weeks in 1986), her second album, Whitney (11 weeks in 1987) and The Bodyguard soundtrack (20 weeks in 1992 and 1993). FULL ARTICLE

Swift follows Whitney Houston as the only woman with multiple albums with 10 weeks at No. 1. Houston managed the feat three times: with her self-titled debut (14 weeks in 1986), her second album, Whitney (11 weeks in 1987) and The Bodyguard soundtrack (20 weeks in 1992 and 1993).

In total, only seven acts have claimed more than one album with 10 weeks at No. 1: Swift, Houston, The Beatles (with four), The Kingston Trio (three), Henry Mancini (two), The Monkees (two) and Elvis Presley (three).

@pottergenes

a comprehensive list of my childhood weirdness:

1. every time i would say something to someone else I would immediately replay it in my head (and also mouth it) so i was basically a ghost

2. i habitually ate paper. like sheets of paper. until college.

3. i would stand on my dresser and jump off and try to fly across the room and i S2G one time i actually flew and i will fight you on this

4. some of them are actually dark and sad so i will leave them here :)

5. i would also wear grocery sacks like parachutes and jump off the roof of my dad’s truck in an attempt to fly

6. okay this one is so disgusting i can’t even with my child self just don’t read if you are grossed out i am warning you this is gross and how did i not get diseases idk. at restuarants, or at school, or wherever i was, i would pick under tables and desks for gum and if i found it i would pry it off and chew it. i know. unfollow. i am trash. (i was this is not a habit i carry over thank fuck and i had actually forgotten about this until i sat down to make this list)

7. as a small child i was obssesed with nick at night which was like old 60s shows like mary tyler moore and dick van dyke 

8. when i lived in a trailer park (classy, yes) all the mailboxes were in rows and would switch stuff in mailboxes just to be a fucker

9. my favorite hiding place in the entire world was in the middle of this lilac bush which was also an inconvenient fort since i was fucking terrified and also allergic to bees

10. as a vry small girl, when i was still terrified of the dark, the only way i could fall asleep was if either the bodyguard soundtrack or some random kenny g album was playing in my room (also, i was like 10 or 11 when i realized CDs belonged face up so as if i ever saw one face down i would very helpfully correct it to face up so you could see what album it was)

11. i used my mom’s dildo as a microphone (but OBVIOUSLY I didn’t KNOW IT WAS A DILDO WTF MOM HIDE THAT SHIT)(actually she did hide it in a sock in her sock drawer but i was a nosy fucker)

12. also i would go into my mom’s dresser and snoop b/c her bottom drawer was all of our childhood drawings and art pieces and i would get nostalgic about my childhood from 2 yrs before

oh god i think that’s all (but i also think that’s enough)
