2 years later, i have returned. I am not entirely sure how to navigate through my dashboard or, in fact, the whole website, but i felt like out of all my social media’s (twitter, instagram, facebook, etc) one was missing and what was missing was the freedom of posting ANYTHING with narration or without while creating your own platform layout.
Followers or no followers i feel like tumblr allows us to lash out creatively.
AND i am ready to beat the heck out of an abstract virtual canvas.
peace out x
When I first saw this I was like “how rude comin from a light skinned person” but when I think about it this is the raw truth. DEPENDING on what exactly you’re working hard for. Since she is a YouTuber what she is saying is absolutely right, there are so many YouTubers out there but if your not good-looking your chance of getting YouTube ‘fame’ are low. And you would think its totally different with YouTube gurus because their there to teach us about make up and enhancing our beauty but how many dark skinned gurus do you know?. Exactly and a ton of the black YouTubers are proudly bleaching (yes proudly they be making videos about it and everything). To cut a long rant short, yes if your dark skinned and want to do something in the entertainment world you do have to work harder and it’s sad (if your ambition is to become a doctor or a teacher count yourself lucky) because it puts people who are not light skinned or the media’s definition of pretty, down. BUT if at the end of the century dark skinned people are extinct, I personaly will still be here with my beautiful dark wrinkly self despite all the bulying and joking about how dark I am because bleaching your skin to be liked or noticed is not worth all the skin damage. #rant #over #bleaching #latoyaforever #YouTube. #darkskinned #opinion
"i know i’m young but i know what i want, it wasn’t hard for me to figure it out, knew you were something different when you caught my attention…"
if the hight of your pride is head high,good on you but we don’t all see ourselves in a shimmery light, don’t downgrade me because you feel more worthy than me.
because in front of your arrogance stands a being that has passion and fire balled up inside her and when it finally escapes it will be more than your shimmery light can ever live up to.
By the looks of this video it seems emeli sande has signed her soul away to the devil. I admire how she bared all in this video, anyone who watches this video and listens to the words will be able to put 2 and 2 together and realise that she has indeed surrendered to the big cult that is ‘The illuminatti’. I love emeli and i felt like she was the one true artist who didn’t need a tv show or big façade to be noticed, we noticed her, without her even trying and it was because she was so humble yet so appealing. Her song writing is what caught me it was like listening to poetry with a beat. Yet ironical its what shes using to tell the world that “success is impatient” and “what is freedom when you live in the gutter”. I appreciate her struggle though because i can only imagine the pressure in the music industry to be at the top and to shine brighter than other artists, but in the video she she was fighting against her thoughts and one of them was “i want freedom, to be myself”, well emeli you had it.
You basically just sold yourself for something you already had and that was fame and fans.
I am still an emeli sande fan but if we keep loosing talent such as her to the black hole then i fear for music in general.
