life hack: remember to compliment people on qualities other than their looks. remind them of their kindness, thoughtfulness, and intelligence. tell them about how powerful and capable they are.

do you think taylor was "appropriating black culture" idk i mean she wasn't the director ya know? i was just wondering what you thought bc i'm white so i feel like i don't have a right to defend her

beyoncebeytwice:

this is literally the only message im going to answer about taylor because you people keep sending them and its really annoying. i am going to be 100% honest with you all: i do not care. i keep posting about ferguson because its important i post about mike brown because its important i am so sorry but i do not care about this. i understand theres uproar because there were black women cast for the twerkers but none for the ballerinas. yes she/whoever was in charge of casting couldve easily had a beautiful dark skinned ballerina thrown in there just like they had some white twerkers thrown in. this is very true. but i dont think shes appropriating anything. when i think of “appropriating twerkers” literally the first thing that comes to mind is miley’s we can’t stop video and honestly taylors video had black people throughout (instead of only for the part that required bootyshaking). there are black people cheerleading. a black ribbon dancer. black people playing instruments. black extras. black interpretive dancers. black hip-hop dancers. a black backup singer. black people are displaying their talents THROUGHOUT the video yet people are only focusing on the twerking?? btw there were only like 3 black women twerking out of 6??? the rest were other ethnicities? if there were ONLY white girls twerking you all would be complaining like “WOW WHY ARE THERE ONLY WHITE GIRLS TWERKING THIS IS A BLACK DANCE” but no you’ve found this to complain about what the hell oh my god please leave this alone and stop sending me message about it i love the song and i think you’re all overreacting this is literally so unimportant to me bye

“Taylor is a businesswoman, a great one at that. That first single is the worlds first impression of her next album that has high expectations to live up too. That means she has to sell it to people that don’t ordinarily listen to her music. If you went to the Red Tour, or at least wanted too, you’re probably a guaranteed buy for her. That’s over a million albums that she doesn’t need to worry about. Her goal with this single is going to be the rest of the population. It HAS to appeal for them otherwise she is going to sit stagnant. That means it’s probably going to be very pop or top 40 sounding so it gets a lot of airplay, but that’s fine. That’s one song on an album that can be assumed to be over 14 tracks just from her track record.
Basically what I’m saying is that if that first single is another WANEGBT, don’t freak out. Don’t rant about her having sold out. She knows what the fans want, and she’ll give that to us in due time. Good things come to those that wait. :)
I’m only saying this because of all the speculation happening and the people going “I’m going to be so dissapointed blah blah blah.””

Someone said this on Reddit and I really like it (x)

I will keep this is mind because Max Martin is pretty lame

where-is-my-comb:

This is Sharpay Evans.

In her junior year, all her hard work she’d put into the East High drama department was thrown down the drain when a ruthless monster named Gabriella Montez transferred to the school and heartlessly seized the leading role from her.

Over the summer break between her junior and senior years, she was stabbed in the back by her own twin brother mere moments before she was meant to go on at a talent show, and she was deprived of the prestigious Star Dazzle Award that she - and not Gabriella Montez - deserved.

In her senior year, she was betrayed yet again. Sharpay, out of the goodness of her own heart, took a British exchange student named Tiara under her wing. Tiara turned on Sharpay and stole her role in the spring musical.

Nevertheless, Sharpay managed to bounce back, and she overcame all that stood between her and her dreams.

Everyday, I am inspired by her strength. Like and reblog if you are too.
