    I’m still so pissed about the Grammy’s using BTS for views. They kept announcing next BTS for hours and kept teasing via twitter the performance. The boys themselves said they were sorry that fans had to wait that long for the performance and for their Vlive afterward.

    • Tiffany says:

      That video immediately popped up for me on YouTube and boy, they didn’t try to fake their disappointment and I am glad they didn’t. Them wanting that Grammy is no different than when are at out job, put in the work for the promotion and then being hurt when it does not happen. They wanted, put in the work to get there, and came up short. Them wanting that Grammy is not different then us wanting a promotion.

      • Lauren says:

        The fact that they knew it, because they had been through it so many times before in South Korea. When Joonie said “I told you” I really felt like crying.

      • Tiffany says:

        Their reaction video was also around and him saying that was not lost on me. The kid in the back row sitting in the middle looked liked he was about the break down.

      • Lauren says:

        That is Taehyung. If you ever want to know what the group is feeling during interviews or presentations just watch out for him. He has zero chill. When he is bored, upset, annoyed or anything of the sort he gets that vacant face expression. The others try to at least fake it, he doesn’t care and I love him for it. They deserve so much better.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Isn’t that what all television shows do? Use the stars for views?

    • Eleonora says:

      Me too.

      They needed them for views and even put them at the end.

      But even the best selling album in the whole world in 2020 wasn’t nominated.

      Lots of Asian people are annoyed. Often wholeheartedly supporting American artists, but things are made very difficult the other way around: little to no radio play in the US, racism and a whole bunch of other crap.

    Talk about overdue

    OK so the HFPA is going to add 13 Black members that fit into their group. So dishonest, not actual journalists who give out nominations and “awards” in exchange for access and favours? Well OK, I mean BIPOC people should have every right to be part of a ridiculous sham too. So….yay?

    I forget where I read it but the basic analogy of the HFPA being taken down hard for diversity issues is not unlike Al Capone being taken down for tax evasion. Address the issues and it’s still going to all be ridiculous and crooked as hell.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      They currently have 87 members. To me, adding another 13 doesn’t seem too difficult at all. What is difficult is understanding why they haven’t done it sooner. Is a secret club or something?!

    I’m not sure if this is the right place, but thank you, Kaiser, for continuing to cover the BRF with your insightful comments. GFY has decided to stop all royal coverage for, among other reasons, the vitriol in their comment section, and Mad about Meghan has paused commenting. it made me realize how much work the moderating of comments must take, and I just appreciate you wading through all that so we can continue to have a place to analyze and reflect on what’s really going on. It has raised my consciousness in many ways.

  5. FancyHat says:

    Why just black members? Shouldn’t they also be adding Asian and Latino members as well?

    Speaking of BTS, I normally dislike blaming artists for stans, but BTS coddles theirs (I’m familiar with how they interact with their fans on social media & interviews) and many are being absolutely vile. Any goodwill I felt for them for trolling Trump is gone. BTS stans are in Ariana’s family’s social media mentions harassing them and throwing homophobic slurs at her brother, thousands of retweets calling Ariana and Gaga misogynistic terms, people tweeting at Gaga she deserved to get r*ped. Just disgusting stuff…I know fans can be insane but I’ve never heard of any fan base being this awful.

    If these were fans of a female artist (Taylor, Rihanna, Gaga, Miley, Beyonce), the artist would be getting dragged or told to step in and the media might even cover it a tiny bit (they’ve covered deranged stan behavior before).

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Wow, that sounds really toxic!

      • Eleonora says:

        @DIV
        Some of the people doing that had their Twitter checked out by real fans of BTS and they had no history of posting about BTS at all before suddenly acting like BTS fans while being toxic.

        Don’t take everything online at face value, please.

        BTS fans constantly organize charity projects around the world, and donate massive amounts of money. From Indonesia to Peru to Spain to the US, they organize projects for children, against racism, poor people, environment and animals (you can google it).

        Perhaps mention that too before you blame tens of millions of people for the stuff some online trolls do.

    • Eleonora says:

      @DIV, ps I find it very shady that you seem to blame BTS for what some of their fans (and some people pretending to be fans) do.

      What do you mean with ‘coddles’ their fans?
      They often say things like love yourself, or please get help when you are suffering etc. They speak out on mental health issues, which is much more of a taboo in Korea.

      I suspect you wouldn’t blame an American artist for ‘coddling’ their fans when they’re just being nice to their many normal fans, because trolls are being toxic on Twitter. And I have seen LOTS of fans of Western artists being racist to other Korean groups well before BTS even became popular. Ut’s even worse now. And those Western artists didn’t suddenly become unfriendly to their fans.
