If you guys don’t know Janelle Monae by now, you should. She is seriously, seriously, all kinds of amazing.
This is a cold war. Do you know what your fighting for?
Comment from songmeanings that I liked:
“I think this song speaks to the experience of being an outsider, especially being part of a minority group. The lines “When you step outside/You spend life fighting for your sanity” and “If you wanna be free/Below the ground’s the only place to be” speaks to trying to live your life as who you are, as a kind of resistance. I think cold war is a metaphor for the subtlety and pervasiveness of the messages and power structures that tell groups of people that there is something wrong with them. The cold war was long and unique in that there was not a lot of direct conflict between the two main antagonists. It was mostly carried out through covert means which is a great metaphor for the class/culture/race conflicts that happen in this country. They are not always obvious but they are devastatingly painful for the people who live with the brunt of it, as Monae’s music video heartbreakingly portrays.” ShoshiRosie
Cold War - Janelle Monae
If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Khan being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.
And by probably I mean definitely.
Here are some abandoned, eerie places!
I always enjoy abandoned places. Its so peaceful to see how nature slowly reclaims what mankind has left behind.
“I fall in love with human beings based on who they are,” she tells the magazine, “not based on what they do or what sex they are.”
DID SHAILENE JUST SAY WHAT WE ALL WANTED TO HEAR? SHE IS LIKE THE FIRST ACTRESS WHO SAYS IT LIKE THAT. SHE DIDNT SAY SHE WAS GAY BUT SHE IS JUST LIKE ALL OF US. WE ALWAYS WANTED PEOPLE TO SAY THAT WE FALL IN LOVE WITH PEOPLE AND NOT WITH A GENDER AND FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT. YOU GO SHAILENE WOODLEY.

[suspicious snape voice] “you’re saying your friend named remus lupin definitely isn’t a werewolf”
[shocked, disappointed james potter voice] “remus lupin, a werewolf?? is it because he’s named after a guy raised by a wolf? is it because his surname literally means wolf? well. you’re wrong. his middle name is john, there’s no way he could be a werewolf.”

LISTEN UP KIDS IT’S STORYTIME
So when I was a little munchkin, I lived in a pretty shitty part of New York City. My mom, who is a fuckin’ rock star, was putting herself through college and working to give us a better life. But still, I wanted to be a princess, and get away from our mouse and cockroach infested apartment and all the kids who bullied me at school. Every single week, my mom would rent this version of Cinderella for me. I loved it, because it starred people who looked like the people from my neighborhood. I loved it, because Cinderella was bullied and disrespected and she still pulled through. I loved it, because she wasn’t some princess who needed to be saved: she saved the prince by teaching him how people should be treated. I loved it, because even though she had a fairy godmother, Cinderella was the one who knew what she wanted and made it happen for herself. Also, that movie has some of the best fucking costumes and choreography you’ll ever see in a TV film. My mom rented it for me so often, eventually the guys at the rental store just gave it to us for free. And you know what? This movie was a fucking inspiration for me, even through elementary, middle, and high school. I told myself, whenever things looked bleak, “Impossible things are happening everyday.” Guys, I now am going to a highly ranked private university on a fucking full scholarship. Moral of the story? The key to success is working hard, believing in yourself, and watching the Brandy version of Cinderella a fuckton of times.

Another Suitcase in Another Hall - Evita (rough cover)
I was trying to be quiet as I didn’t want to disturb everyone else on the corridor, so it’s not great/made me go a little shallow on some of the top notes. Also, please excuse iffy timing, I’ve never actually sung with this backing before and was too lazy to practise with it (hashtag yolo)
