rgr-pop:

you messed with me, and messed with her
so I’ll make sure you get what you deserve
one day, you’ll be begging on your knees for me
so watch your back, ‘cause you don’t know when or where I could get you
I set the trap and when I’m done
then you’ll know what I’ve been through
Oh, mister player, do you feel like a man now?
I bet you’re nervous ‘cause this song makes you freak out
and one day, I’ll have you begging on your knees for me
one day, I’ll have you crawling like a centipede

I know I’m being bitter, but Imma drag you under
‘cause you just don’t deserve a happy ever after

rgr-pop:

I think that all pro-life doctors are just attempted murderers waiting to happen. I also think when “removing a dead/unviable fetus from a dying women’s body” conflicts with your “pro-life politics” then you have really, really got to step back and define your terms. Because “intervening in an already-terminated pregnancy” is not exactly an abortion.

Kristen Stewart: smiling is not an obligation, professional or otherwise

 ”She stands out on the red carpet because she does not smile broadly or pose; she usually looks slightly uncomfortable. Of her red-carpet experience,Stewart said:
People say that I’m miserable all the time. It’s not that I’m miserable, it’s just that somebody’s yelling at me…I literally, sometimes, have to keep myself from crying…It’s a physical reaction to the energy that’s thrown at you.”

Stewart is often a target of a specific kind of body policing: the “smile, baby” requirement. When she appears on the red carpet and does not assure us with her teeth that she is simply thrilled to be reduced to a presence, a dress, a posture, she is often the target of harassment for her expression. There is an expectation of women in general and famous woman in particular to always assure the onlooker that they are happy to be looked upon through smiling, and Stewart rejects this.”

Women are expected to be nice and sweet, to make other people feel comfortable. A woman who says ‘hey, I think there’s a problem here’ is being ‘negative.’ A woman who doesn’t smile while she’s being harassed is ‘humourless.’ A woman who prefers to stay focused on tasks is a ‘cold bitch.’ Significant gendering is involved here; women have an obligation to look and act a certain way and when they don’t, they need to be hassled until they do.

ye girl, I feel your pain
wouldn’t believe how many random people tell me to fucking smile 

I see the criticism of Lana Del Rey as an extension of this, people getting angry that she looks awkward when she performs and characterising her as this stone-cold distant weirdo when there are videos of her laughing in interviews and smiling with fans. I’ve seen lots of indie boy bands where the singer drawls into the mic, standing motionless and staring at the floor but apparently that’s just being cool. When she does it she’s a bad performer.
