“A racist woman is not a feminist; she doesn’t care about helping women, just the women who look like her and can buy the same things she can. A transphobic woman is not a feminist; she is overly concerned with policing the bodies and expressions of others. A woman against reproductive rights — to use bell hook’s own example, and an issue close to your heart — is not a feminist; she prioritizes her dogma or her disgust over the bodies of others. An ableist woman is not a feminist; she holds some Platonic ideal of what a physically or mentally “whole” person should be and tries to force the world to fit inside it.”—

THIS IS JUST A DRAFT BY ME YOU GUYS….. Just wanted to share this to ya’ll! Since’s it’s been awhile since my last post. I’ll try to update this blog as soon as I have time! Thanks guys! Peace!
Amidst the recent fall in the music industry, how can an artist survive in a time where thousands of celebrities lie and wait for people’s attention, it is almost impossible for one to standout in show business. In the world of music, an artist must speak their minds to be understood, and an artist must leave an impressionable mark to the general public; certainly Lady Gaga has no problem in giving an impression. The growth of Lady Gaga as an artist went through exceptional lengths that brought her fame and fortune that no one her age could ever imagine.
Legends like Jackson, Bowie, Mercury, Lennon, Madonna and even Whitney have achieved success that only few could imagine, and certainly Lady Gaga has reached that success. An Icon in the world of music, and a trend setter in the world of fashion, Lady Gaga is truly one of a kind. Seen as provocative and even odd by most the people, Lady Gaga can keep you wondering what’s next. Though mostly misunderstood by the people, Gaga dares to bold and different and even one of a kind.
While Lady Gaga’s fashion and music have always been related to each other, whether it’s addressing musical genre through fashion, or whether it’s addressing musical content with clothes. Whether it’s dressing up or dressing down, fashion for Lady Gaga certainly isn’t just about looking good; it’s about speaking your mind. And that is certainly not a problem, with garments that not only catches people’s attention, but also makes them riot against it; garments that obits around your head, or even just raw meat, Lady Gaga doesn’t fail to entertain and leave a mark wherever she is. Lady gaga embodies confidence that can’t be shut down by any critic, and as her song goes, “I was born this way baby!”. With lyrical content that are inspired by women and the gay community, Lady Gaga’s fans or as she would call them her ‘Little Monsters’ aren’t ordinary. In fact they come from all walks of life, which inspire the ‘Mother Monster’ to make music that only the intellect and the free would appreciate.
Challenging modern society to understand her music has always been her main concern; whether it’s lyrical content that discusses self-expression and acceptance, or even teen angst with the underlying themes of sexuality and religion; Lady Gaga says what she has to say. A genius in the eyes of many, Lady Gaga is said to have studied ‘The art of fame’ perfectly, mastering the fame of how celebrities live in Hollywood and how she can live a life in the norm with letting people focus in her career and not in her personal life. Even the great Tony Bennett cited Lady Gaga as ‘America’s Picasso’, with her energy never running out, and her creativity that surpasses beyond the norm; certainly Lady Gaga has proven her talent with fans and musicians alike.
Aside from being an icon in music; she is also a genius in marketing her career. Using social media as an effective marketing strategy, with over 29 million followers on Twitter, 54 million subscribers on Facebook, and millions of fans around the world, surely Lady Gaga can sell music with just one click of button. With Gaga’s creative team called the ‘Haus of Gaga’ which is modeled on Andy Warhol’s Factory, Lady Gaga has no problem is promoting brand of music
With one of the most mind-shatteringly beautiful scores I’ve encountered, Cloud Atlas left me utterly destroyed, and yet my entire existence felt so wholly verified, bleeding as it was on the floor. Magnificent.

I haven’t liked someone this much. It’s weird, but it’s a good-weird. I mean, it’s been awhile; it hurts that ‘that someone’ doesn’t like me. But what can I do? I see this person, and it hurts so much. It’s like a stab in my chest. I see this person suffering from attention from the person of his desire. But every time I see him, I’m just completely obliterated into pieces. It’s like a fucking massacre. Sometimes I just want to cry and tell him. Confront him, that he’s being a fucking moron. But I can. I won’t. I mean who I am to tell him what to do? I’m just a friend, a friend who’s been there more than anyone. I’m the first person he told about his secret affair, and about his daily thoughts; and it’s a blessing and a curse, sometimes I just wish I was ‘that person’. ‘That person’ that he wants so bad. I have no more words really. I’m doing most of these for you, in silent, by myself, and alone. I’m the only one who knows how deep my feelings are getting (well actually now my followers too). I want to see you happy, it makes me happy, it makes me feel like I’ve done something right. You always joked about how you wanted ‘this’ but when I budged into it, you simply shut downed. It seems like my feelings are a joke to you. Is it?
If you know how much I like you, you’ll understand. But for now, I’ll keep mum.

It’s been awhile since I like someone and it sucks that the person I like right now doesn’t like me back. You know what, I really don’t give a fuck, well I mean I shouldn’t give a fuck because you’re not feeling the same thing. I still have this gut feeling tho but you know what that’s life, you live and you learn. I like you so much that it’s weird, cause I never saw you in that light, it just so happened that I woke up and realized that I like you. I hate it. It sucks, it’s not normal.
