“Well, I’ve worked with Selena Gomez before when she was 15 years old… She’s raised from just such a great family. Her mom is amazing, she’s got such a good head on her shoulders. She’s a hard worker, she’s humble, she’s good to her fans and she’s always been that way. And now as a young woman, I miss her as well, I didn’t get to see her, but seeing the work, she did such an amazing job. And she’s so talented.”—Jaming Chung about Selena in a recent interview with E! News (via smg-news)
I see too many dudes like “I was honest and loyal, what more does she want from me?” like for real she wants a human being, not a robot who thinks sex is a reward for being dedicated. honesty, loyalty, dedication, those are baseline boyfriend qualities. that is you doing the least. who tf are you besides that?
i refuse to be shamed for having a body. i refuse to get embarrassed when a tampon falls out of my purse or spend a whole day anxious about if someones going to notice that i forgot to shave a patch of leg hair. i wasnt put on this earth to spend my time apologizing for my existence and i refuse to let anyone make me feel like i have to waste my energy on all that petty shit
“I want this song to go out in the world and not be about my critics, I want it to be about the girl who’s criticizing someone in eleventh grade because she thinks that her hair looks stupid. And that girl then goes and like cries in the bathroom because of it. These are things that we go through in every phase of our lives, starting a new job and there’s just someone who has it out for you. And I hope that maybe, you know, I had a lot of days when I would come home from school, and get in the car and my mom would try so hard to console me ‘cause someone had made fun of me or something had said something about me, or not invited me to something I was dying to go to. And she would always try to find songs that bring me out of that, and music always helped distract me from that, so I think my greatest hope is that this started out being about my life and I just want it to go out into cars, and speakers, and your phones, and become about their lives.”—Taylor on what she wants the message of ‘Shake It Off’ to be.
