thats how it goes
Who run the world? Barbara Kruger. That’s who. Never seen this one before, and it’s fantastic.
Machine Level Instruction Code — yes, it’s as painful as it sounds.
Video of Gaga performing “Venus” and “Applause” on Japan’s Smap x Smap. Interview here.
Note: The stage Gaga performed on was designed for her by the Japanese set designers of Smap x Smap. Gaga collaborated with the Smap x Smap team to ensure an authentic and respectful homage to Japanese culture and to show her Japanese fans how much she appreciates being a part of their world. If you feel the need to start a discussion about cultural appropriation, please learn the difference between appropriation and appreciation. Better yet, don’t try to speak for the Japanese people who invited Gaga to their country and encouraged her to take part in their culture.
That was a great performance! She’s coming back, slowly but surely. And I love the note about cultural appropriation, haha. Spill that tea!

Post with 1 note
Nobody probably cares about this, but for me, I had a big realization the other day. I’ve always had a weird reaction whenever I look at pictures of me as a little kid. I always just want to burst out in tears, and I feel immensely guilty. I was never able to figure out why. Even when I was only 9 years old, I found a picture of when I was 4 and sitting on santa’s lap, and I just started bawling.
Of course I thought of the normal culprits — worries about getting older, or the loss of innocence — but none of these seemed right. And just out of the blue the other day, it hit me like a ton of bricks:
I feel guilty because the cute little thing in those pictures was so lovable, and who I’ve become is so unlovable.
It’s new-age-y, self-help crap, I know. But it’s absolutely true. Especially with how things have turned sour between me and my family members, I often feel like I’ve turned into a person who is unlovable to my family. So much has come between us. But I just have to keep on showing myself love and compassion anyway. Always such a deceptively simple thing that is so difficult to do.
