Did Taylor Swift Really Copy Beyoncé in Her New MV?
Do you guys think Taylor Swift copied a scene from Beyoncé's music video? There are some accusations and drew out comparisons from Beyoncé's "Lemonade" to Tay's new MV in "Look What You Made Me Do." To clear all misunderstandings, the Director of LWYMMD, Joseph Kahn, responded to this issue on Twitter saying, "I've worked with Beyoncé a few times. She's an amazing person. The #LWYMMDvideo is not in her art space, Love and respect to Bey." And in his recent interview with Los Angeles Times, he commented about the copying issue—specifically the accusations that Taylor wore a black crop top which was similar to Beyoncé who also wore a black crop top. He said that what they don't realize is that Tay was also wearing a black crop top in her previous MV "Bad Blood." Copying Beyonce or not, why are people making a big deal about their fashion choices? Can't it just be on trend? LOL. (via teenvogue.com)
OMG, you guys! ICYMI, Dylan O'Brien revealed in his recent interview with Vulture, that before MTV's hit show Teen Wolf, Dylan auditioned for projects like Valentine's Day and Wizards of Waverly Place. Just imagine another life where Dylan is a Disney channel star who's also co-stars with Selena Gomez! He didn't mention what role he auditioned for though, but we can't think of any roles in the show we'd like to let go. What's worse is, we also can't imagine the world where Dylan isn't Teen Wolf's Styles Stilinski! (via teenvogue.com)
"I never took a second on set for granted. Even on my first day on the pilot, when my work finished for the day but then they were going to this other location to shoot another scene, I just went with them." –Dylan O'Brien

Being the first person to reach 100 million followers on Instagram, Selena Gomez was featured by Time Magazine in their "Firsts" project that aims to celebrate women who were first to achieve something historic. Even being dubbed as Instagram queen, Selena Gomez also sees the faults of social media and makes sure that she shows the world her unfiltered life—how it's not always picture-perfect. She shares this especially to her fans, saying, "I hope that they know that strength doesn't mean you have to put on a façade. Strength is being vulnerable." Such a major inspiration! (via mtv.com)

oh god, do I really want this forbidden love? that only exist in my imagination? that only exist through my words? would you, meine liebling, notice me and my art one second? because I am dying to say I love you.
A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender
Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.
Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.
It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.
Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
Dear me in six years, I wonder how life will treat you when you’re already 26 years old. Will you be financially stable? Will you be working in an advertising agency while pursuing everything about the arts? Will you be doing freelancing and living in a condo by then? I don’t know since things are very uncertain. I hope by the time you graduate from college and face the real meaning of the world, you’ll know what the real purpose of doing and living in the art will be.
I know it’s been so tough ever since you turned 20 but that’s how life works, I guess. There will be a lot of hopes and trials, breakdowns, and breakthroughs but I have high hopes of you becoming the better version of yourself. You always do, though. You were never a quitter. Making decisions is getting harder and harder as you grow but I hope it doesn’t make you stop doing what you really love to do. You will face different people with different perspectives. You will feel like a stranger once again, it’s like you were back in your freshmen year. It’s going to be tougher than you’ve expected but you can do it. I believe you can.
Most of the time, people's perception of us as a strong person makes us feel that we are not entitled to be vulnerable because they might be disappointed for seeing our weak spots. And so when we are hurting, we are often scared of extreme emotions and so bury our feelings. We deny them, trying to avoid the pain we feel.
But by doing that, we are just allowing it to come back to us and haunt us. And when it comes back, it might be stronger and it will be harder for us to get over it than when we faced them first. I realized it just now that facing those emotions will scare them until they're gone. The saying 'Let it hurt until it hurts no more' goes true. Admitting your pain to yourself doesn't make you weak. It only proves that you are strong enough to acknowledge such extreme emotions without avoiding them. We are humans and it's okay if we hurt sometimes.
Before, sliding over the rainbows
Now, our hearts are bruised
Days once full of love and laughter
Became dawns of forfeited ever after
Smiles that bring ticklish sensations
Turned to cold question and answer
Figuring who would be the next instructor
The queen’s awake
Grappling to the happiness that the sorrow and sadness take
Going back to all the promises he couldn’t make
