pop was definitely taylor’s worst genre-1989 was amazinggg rep was good and lover was horrible Pop really limited her story telling and lyricism which is kinda her thing. So I understand why people say “i miss the old taylor”
I don’t think it limited her storytelling, but I just think the production choices were just meh!January 8, 2021 at 2:26 pm #1203970401

First of all, if any group/artist (I don’t care who they are) has MULTIPLE incidents of committing anti-Black actions over a extended period of time then they do indeed have a “LONG history of racism”. Period point blank! Like the way their fandom tries to downplay their racism is just disgusting to me. Second, you say that, “BTS has called out educated themselves, talked, owned up, apologized…”, but that isn’t true. One of the members who sang the N-word did give a general apology for his past mistakes but he never apologized for all of anti-blackness. In fact, he never even mentioned it. Plus, ALL of the members of bts have sang the N-word before when they were rapping along to a song. None of them gave an apology. Finally, clearly you are a Kpop fan so you know how sensitive Kpop companies are with images and slander. They even will sue “trolls” on the internet. So, its extremely foolish to believe that BIGHIT doesn’t approve and monitor/control every single article that is written about their current cash cows. Regardless, there is nothing wrong with donating/mentioning BLM. However, it is a problem when BLM is being used as a prop to win an award without actually caring about the movement and what it stands for. BIGHIT really has no shame.
im not a kpop fan, I just like BTS.
And no one is downplaying anything, y’all try to UP-play it.. I literally posted a link to EVERYTHING they’ve done. Good and Bad! Everything is out there is the open and people bring it up every other week, nothing is a secret.
Their label sues people for defamation not trolls.. just like the rest of celebrities in Korea because they have 1. Different laws for defamation than in the US, and 2. The volatile things that people do and say over there is extreme to the point that naver (Korea’s main search engine and Nate had to disable comments on their entertainment section)
And if they had so much control over every magazine/interview they did, then the articles wouldn’t be constantly full of bullshit and inaccuracies to the point that they don’t even acknowledge them. They also don’t even want journalist who are BTS fans to interview them. (Or kpop journalist who secretly hate them)
idgaf about BH or weverse Magazine article that was only suppose to be seen by people who have the app, so how exactly was that milking? They write articles about many things.. we can agree that the article was terrible but your original post made it seem like BTS were disingenuous with their donation when they’ve been donated to many organizations (education, arts, women’s, lgbt, race organization) for years and theyonly donated for a Grammy… when they did it before Dynamite was even thought of, and they’ve only ever openly talked about it once.
Ps. Don’t feel the need to respond, I’m over this conversation!December 24, 2020 at 3:19 am #1203943270
I was gonna ignore this but…
BTS does not have a LONG history of racism… they said the N word in a song they covered years back and said colorist remarks towards each other and appropriation years back as well, BTS has called out educated themselves, talked, owned up, apologized and grown from this. Everything they’ve done is out in the open, nothing is a secret.
Here’s an actual full list of everything BTS has done if you’re interested!
What BTS does have a long history of is donating/ volunteering to many organizations, they donated and visited families of the Sewol Ferry tragedy which literally almost got them blacklisted in 2014 a year after they debuted and we just found this out THIS year. (We already knew they donated but not visited and prayed with family) the blacklist was exposed in 2017 with over 10k people including Park Chan-wook director of Oldboy and The Handmaiden.(This is why The Handmaiden was submitted to the oscars). RM just got an award for donating books to schools in rural areas of Korea and 100m won to museums. Jimin just donated 108m won to education growth and scholarships something he’s done for the last 4 years!
Lady Gaga just did an interview in september talking about BLM and how “all music is black music” (which is true)
Pretty much every artist that’s nominated in this category has either donated or talked about BLM in an interview, BTS has only spoken about it once in person. It’s not their fault everybody keeps bringing it up. And weverse is a fan club app, articles are written by outsource journalist and are not made for public consumption. (But it was extremely terribly written) nobody in the industry was reading that.December 21, 2020 at 10:50 pm #1203938610

Would she be done with the the re-records by then.. that’s alot of music.December 16, 2020 at 4:10 pm #1203925984
Life Goes On is in korean with no remixes or instrumental, barley any radio, no playlisting and during Christmas season.. it was never gonna have longevity and BE has only 7 chartable songs vs 15.. $50 box set physicals and the digital isn’t available to purchase on their website.. Two different marketing strategies, BTS seemed more profit than chart based. I think Taylor’s team is a little smarter though.December 14, 2020 at 1:21 pm #1203919882
This is not true. The voters shower Gaga with awards during successful eras like TFM and ASIB. But that doesn’t mean they don’t do that for other artists too, including possibly Taylor Swift this year. And Ariana would’ve received that treatment last year if not for Billie.
Billie only won BPVA though.. It seems that was only category Ariana could of won.December 13, 2020 at 1:37 pm #1203917509
“Life Goes On” also went #1 then freefell the next week and will most likely be off the charts this week. Dynamite probably would have done the same had it not been for those remixes and the fact that its in English.
A song in korean, no radio, no playlisting, no major promo, no signed CDs + with over 40 Christmas songs charting, freefalling should Be expected. The same would of happened to almost all songs that debuted #1 this year without radio and playlisting. I mean most #1 debuts this year fell out the top 10 on week 2 and continued to slowly decend. JB+ShawnM Monster was released same week as LGO and it also fell 20 spots but do to radio and playlisting it’s maintaining its charting.
Dynamite managed to stay in the top 10 for 11 non-consecutive weeks.(so far) Dynamite had 20M streams in the 2nd week. Averaging 13 – 15 million streams weekly after the first 2 weeks.December 13, 2020 at 1:25 pm #1203917453
The fact that you actually believe that statement is sending me. Their “quality” of what???!! The fact that they can use more autotune than anyone else? Or that they can rhyme “ping-pong” with “Lebron”? Also, they have been releasing Korean music for a while now but apparently it had to take an English song for the industry to recognize their “quality”? That’s very interesting.
BTS music has been recognized by many major publications throughout the years.. them getting their first Grammy nom with an English single says more about the Grammy voters than anything else.December 13, 2020 at 1:11 pm #1203917409
Dynamite was going #1 with or without remixes… Sucker had bundles too.
