    Takeoff being shot and killed really struck me. It’s really sad. So young and talented. RIP.

  2. Lucía says:

    Just saw Takeoff’s video pop up on my tw timeline. Awful, just awful. Poor guy. His poor loved ones.

  3. Nicegirl says:

    Takeoff 💕

  4. Snuffles says:

    I’m not a Migos fan but I know how much they meant to the rap scene. 28 is too young to die. And it’s not just Take Off, there are so many young rappers getting killed over random, petty stuff. It’s a disturbing pattern.

  5. Nicegirl says:

    I love Taylor’s music, can’t fight it, ngl. I’m gonna listen 🎧 to the songs soon, haven’t yet. I’m hearing the ‘it’s me, I, I’m the problem’ bits on the news and am gonna be listening to that tune first.

    I love when women take their industries by storm!! I’m amazed and proud that she’s made this accomplishment w the top tens rn. I hope it is a trend for ALL women musicians. Crack that ceiling 💕 🎶 🖖

    * all kinds of herstory 🤞

    • NotSoSocialB says:

      Bigger Than The Whole Sky brought me to tears, and I’ve never experienced a pregnancy loss. The devastation pours out of her. It’s image-rich and poetic.

  7. JanetDR says:

    That is so sad about the camels. I would like to learn more about feasible options.

    • Christine says:

      If we can’t use them or abuse them in some way, then they must be killed. It is so sad.

      • Ange says:

        Australia has an incredibly fragile ecosystem that has suffered immensely with human interference and animal introduction since white colonisation. I’d much rather see our endangered wildlife looked after and around for the future than worry too much about the camels, to be blunt.

        It’s the same argument that comes up with our feral cats. Sorry but the native wildlife should always be first priority.

      • Twin Falls says:

        It’s more humane to put them down than to let them continue to overpopulate and become a menace to themselves and the native wildlife. The thought of camels ending up factory animals for milk and cheese like cows is just awful.

  8. Eurydice says:

    The Schiaparelli jacket is awesome.

    • ML says:

      Haha, I like some of the details, but I’m afraid it’s not my style. I preferred Cate Blanchett’s flowery bosom from the same collection much more.

  9. Concern Fae says:

    I follow a Swiftie on Twitter and seeing young women worrying over not being able to afford all the varient versions of Midnights is leaving a bad taste in my mouth. Billboard really needs to crack down on this and only count one version of an album towards making the top of the charts.

    • Snoozer says:

      I don’t mind her, I like some tracks; but I don’t get it. This album is bland AF. Elevated elevator music. I can’t get through more than 2-3 songs at a time, they’re so boring. Her PR and marketing games are winning this for her.

    • SAS says:

      @ConcernFae, I don’t understand why more people aren’t talking about this! Why do those billboard numbers not have an asterisk next to them like NYT bestsellers who have gotten their position due to bulk orders.

      So now every artist will make 4x versions of their record to purchase (because that is the number set for individual purchases to go towards sales records) and we are further filling the world with plastic trash. Every time I start to like her, she pulls this shit.

  10. manda says:

    I wish I saw what other people do in taylor swift. I just don’t get her crazy popularity

    • Tashiro says:

      I agree. I’m not doggin her or anything but her music just does nothing for me.

    • Emily_C says:

      I dislike all of her music except one song — Blank Space. It feels honest and I like it okay musically. The rest are just ugh to me. Especially because still, in her 30s, she’s lamenting that she’s no longer a teenager. Who the hell wants to be a teenager? I think she is very shrewd, very good at business and at making what people like to hear. It lets her afford all that private jet travel.

  11. Bad Janet says:

    Yes, the NCAA started to allow athletes to make money off of their name, image, and likeness (NIL), starting the 2021-2022 school year. Athletes can profit from the marketing their school creates using their photos, but they can also take their own corporate sponsorships. I follow gymnastics, where tons of female athletes have had to choose between “going pro” or choosing college through their peak performance years.

    It’s no accident that for the first time EVER, the current women’s national team for gymnastics has multiple NCAA athletes. Three are even competing in the world championships right now.

    WTF that is barely recognizable as Madonna…I’m shook

    • whatWHAT? says:

      she has ruined any semblance of her former self. and not just her face. she got butt-implants of some sort and it looks terrible. like she has a full diaper all the time.

      and here I thought Madonna, of all people, would age as if she were proud to be aging…she’s a badass and has been such a strong female presence in the industry…and now it’s just so sad to see what she’s become.

    • HaHa says:

      Madonna just keeps sinking lower and lower, it’s so sad and pathetic to see.

      • dlc says:

        I though Madonna was not a drug user at all? Too health and fitness obsessed. I guess there is no line she won’t cross in her quest for attention and relevance.

  13. Silent Star says:

    I find most of Taylor’s music to be “meh”, with about 1 in 10 songs to be really great. This album is really over produced, with the background music being very unimaginative and drowning out her lyrics. She should do an unplugged remake of the whole album.

    However, I do think “Vigilante Shit” is brilliant and “Lavender Haze” is a close second.

    • Likeyoucare says:

      Love the vigilante shit. The others songs need to be listen during quiet time and repeatedly. First listen i goes meh. Then after the third, i go ohhh…
