and I’m fucking pissed.
These people are so ignorant. They keep claiming that just because the Mainstream Top 40 crowd is not aware of Bon Iver, the band shouldn’t have won.
They’re saying Justin Vernon looks like he’s homeless, a guy who still lives with his mom and touches himself, and a lumberjack who should “go back to Canada”. I understand wanting another artist to win but bashing someone you don’t know because you don’t agree with them winning is not okay.
Maybe Justin Vernon seemed uncomfortable on stage but he actually complimented the other talent, he wasn’t rude or completely unresponsive. Since when is it a crime to be awkward? Now there’s hundreds of racist, uneducated (well, it seems that way from their spelling) random people on the internet being pointlessly rude. The public opinion is not going to change something that’s already happened. What’s the point?
On who-is-bon-iver.tumblr.com some anon said this: I hope that stupid, bald, ugly, lame, talentless asshole gets fucked in the ass by 20 black men. best new artist my fucking ass. and this bitch had the nerve to fucking apologize to the losers some condescending asshole. I’d like to slice that fucking smile off his face. For real.
This is some of the logic people are using against Bon Iver winning/other insults (this is what people have said, not what I believe):
- Everybody knows Skrillex so he should have won
- The show is racist, so that’s why Nicki Minaj didn’t win
- Adele has bigger balls than Bon Iver
- He has a wannabe combover…
- Anybody but Bon Iver deserves the grammy
- He looks like a Caveman looking thing
- He’s not a “real artist”
- Nicki Minaj should have won because she has her own nail polish line and Lipstick by Mac
- He’s not Kanye, Adele or Chris Brown so he shouldn’t have won
- Someone said “How can the album of a band I don’t even know be better than the torches” -_- seriously? Just because you don’t know who Bon Iver is you… oh nvm *sigh*
- A Bon Iver performance is the antidote to caffeine
and that’s just the start.
May I remind you that Nicki Minaj sang Stupid Hoe and Skrillex makes metallic transformer sounds for a living… Also can someone tell me who J Cole is? Not bashing at all, I’m just wondering.
Btw don’t get me wrong, I like some Nicki Minaj and Skrillex is fun to dance to but their music doesn’t have as much… emotion and originality as Bon Iver.
I’m not saying everyone should like Bon Iver. I’m not saying people shouldn’t express their opinion. But can people please think before they write (and check their spelling)?!
I’m very sad to hear that Whitney Houston died. But unlike other people, I’m not sad because we’ve lost an idol or anything, I’m sad because a human has died.
She deserves to be grieved over. She was another human soul and she died too young. But I hate how there’s people who are suddenly idolising her that have never before given a shit about her. I hate how there’s lots of other people dying but all I see all over tumblr is people grieving about her death.
No person deserves to die young. As I already said, she deserves to be grieved over and her death is definitely something to care about. But all death’s are. Being famous should not be the only reason someone is grieved over or about (not sure what the correct grammar is here).
I might get hate for this but oh well. Just my opinion.
guess how old I am?
YOU SUCK. ARE YOU KIDDING? YOU’RE SO SKINNY AND SO PRETTY. UGH!
