something for the rock fans AND the r&b fans.

Without You by Lee Michelle


i started crying by the time the chorus came around. 

everybody, please watch this video. it’s not another cute romance or  break-up song.  the video very clearly shows that this is about Lee Michelle’s struggle to be accepted in very large part to her skin color. The child acting in this deserves every single award, as does Michelle. Both the song and the video hit really hard.

some important things to keep in mind:

- Michelle is half black and half Korean. Some people act like saying “African American” is better than black, but she’s never been to America. Afro-Hispanic people exist, African people exist —  not everyone black is African American.

-for God’s sake, PLEASE don’t comment on how amazed you are by her Korean.  She was born and raised in Korea. It’s her first language. Just because she doesn’t “look Korean” to you doesn’t mean she’s not.

- I skipped the first 1:30 of the video because watching a little girl run around in panic makes me anxious, personally. The song starts around 1:35, but parts of the beginning are really cool. I just couldn’t handle it.

- Michelle was also featured in the absolutely gorgeous Rewind by Double K. Please go support both songs!

I want this girl to get support and love from us. Please, check her out, reblog this video, support her with views, anything you can.  It’s clear that she has a struggle before her in the k-pop world despite her incredible talent, charisma, and beauty. It’s really inspiring that she is making that the root of her work.  As a person with brown skin, and also a person with a heart, this was really, really important to me.

Trick Daddy, Pitbull, and Rick Ross - Born N Raised


in florida, we talk about what county we’re from.

i guess this entire thing is supposed to be a metaphor for his relationship with his ex…

Just a quick blurb on my thoughts about it… stream of consciousness style.

him being kidnapped is him being caught up in something by surprise and trying to get out of it, but can’t. so maybe that’s some drama he created but never saw coming or something he knew would eventually come back, but never knew it would the way it did.

Then him being tied up with his mouth covered… he’s literally watching a bunch of craziness unfold in front of him and not being able to stop it or even talk his way out of it.

Finally, he breaks free from the drama and tries to kill what he sees as a source of his anguish and flee from it, but there is no escaping it. He will face this until it ultimately ends the only way it can… and that’s with the death of him. 

In the end he’s representing both himself and the relationship because he dug his own grave, but he’s still saying it wasn’t completely his fault because it was at gunpoint and he was still shot trying to fight off the inevitable.

and i think the blackouts are the times when he wasn’t present physically, but came to (came back) to his world continuing to unravel.

eh… idk


glad he made a video for this song though…I couldn’t believe it wasn’t one of the first singles.

This is one of the most heartbreaking non japanese life insurance commercial videos i’ve ever seen in my life.

A Great Big World feat Christina Aguilera - Say Something


Dear mother, I love you
I’m sorry, I wasn’t good enough
Dear Father, forgive me
Cause in your eyes, I just never added up
In my heart I know I failed you, but you left me here alone

If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain?
Cause I remember everything.
If I could help you forget, would you take my regrets?
Cause I remember everything.

But dear brother, just don’t hate me
For never standing by you, or being by your side
Dear sister, please don’t blame me
I only did, what I thought was truly right
It’s a long and lonely road, when you know you walk alone

If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain?
Cause I remember everything.
If I could help you forget, would you take my regrets?
Cause I remember everything.

I feel like running away
I’m still so far from home
You say I’ll never change but what the fuck do you know?
I’ll burn it all to the ground, before I let you run
Please forgive me, I can’t forgive you now.
I remember everything.
If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain?
Cause I remember everything.
If I could help you forget, would you take my regrets?
Cause I remember everything.
It all went by so fast; I still can’t change the past
I always will remember, everything
If we could start again, would that change the end?
We remember everything.

Leela James and Anthony Hamilton - Say That [Official Video]

I hate when people say there’s no soulful music these days… just because you’re looking for all of your music on the Top 40, doesn’t mean other music doesn’t exist…

Both of these soulful ass singers have been around for a long time.

"We dedicate this video to our mentor; the legendary King Of Pop
The late Michael Jackson, who still inspires us ‘Personally’.” - P-Square

The dancing in this is a nice homage to MJ, visual effect of it all wonderful.

Eminem feat Rihanna - The Monster (Explicit)

Rihanna’s first look is a hell yeah. Eminem incorporating reenactments of some of his most noteworthy videos is making me feel like this is his retirement album.
