I’m Probably Naive For Saying This, But I’d Be a Bit Sad if Travis Cheated on Kylie

1) I’m a huge fan of Travis Scott’s music so I don’t want him to be a philandering asshole, but since I am such a fan of his music and not against the messages in his music I’ll still remain a fan even if he’s a cheater…I’ll just like him a little less.

2) I love Kylie Jenner and I feel for her. Yes, I think her life is waaaaaaayyyyyyyy easier than so many people. She is not starving and she isn’t living in a war torn country, BUT I think that the family she’s grown up with would have undoubtedly put alot of pressure on her to get as sexy and beautiful as quickly as possible. No, I don’t think Kris Jenner or anyone else would have ever directly told Kylie “get hot and beautiful asap” as a child, but clearly the family makes money off of how hot and beautiful they are. So it’s easy to imagine Kylie feeling affected by what her family promotes to make money.  The family’s hotness is also why I’m in interested in the Kardashian/Jenner’s, so I’m a part of the problem/it’s not all the KarJenner’s fault. Nevertheless, Kylie is only 21 and I think that she has to feel some sort of intense psychological pressure to try to look good all the time/maintain her brand and perform as well as her female siblings. That would be hard on one’s mental health in my opinion.

3) Before the whole Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson hook-up supposedly went down, I wondered whether Travis and Jordyn had ever hooked-up. At that point, I thought it was a crazy idea, but then at the same time, I was asking myself, “Why do I really think it’s that crazy?” Jordyn is a gorgeous girl. Just as gorgeous as Kylie. Travis is a young man, and even people with the best of intentions often fail. Beauty is tempting! I read Jordyn as someone who would probably be loyal to Kylie to the core, so the Tristan Thompson scandal has been surprising. Yet, it’s not the end of the world. I get it if Khloe, Kylie and the others in the KarJenner family don’t want to hang out with Jordyn anymore, but the rest of society needs to take a moment, breath, and let Jordyn off the hook. If Jordyn got with Tristan it would mean that both Tristan and Jordyn were acting shady…BUT  Tristan much more so than Jordyn, since he’s the one that owes his loyalty to Khloe (if they’re in a monogamous relationship) and since he has a baby with Khloe. I do need to point out that, from what I recall, Tristan started dating Khloe when his ex had either just given birth or was pregnant with Tristan’s son Prince. Tristan’s love ’em and leave ’em pattern was established prior to Khloe.

Even if 21 year-old Jordyn hooked up with Tristan, it doesn’t mean she’s evil or a homewrecker! The person in the relationship who cheats is the homewrecker in my opinion, not the person outside of it. Jordyn might have made a mistake, but it doesn’t mean she should have to hide inside away from the prying eyes of the public for the next 10 years. A lot of us have made mistakes like Jordyn, so I foresee this helping her career IN THE LONG RUN, not necessarily right away. Maybe some haven’t done anything like what Jordyn apparently did, but then I think the mistake people make is judging “the other woman” or man way more harshly than they deserve to be judged.

4) Point blank: it would be excruciatingly painful to be cheated on by someone you have a young child with. I’ve been with guys who I’m monogamous with and obsessed with and they would have sex with others and rub it in my face, but we weren’t in a relationship and I most definitely didn’t have a kid with them…and it still hurt me so bad and in one situation contributed to a mental breakdown! If Kylie did just get cheated on that is so mean and insensitive of Travis. Hopefully, he’ll give Kylie space if he cheated instead of stringing her along. If Travis isn’t faithful and wants to hook up with lots of girls that’s totally ok. What’s not ok is lying to the person you supposedly love. People who do that make a leap from being honest about carnal desires to being downright douchebags.

Anyways, since we don’t actually know what’s going on behind closed doors (and we’ll never know the full story but it seems right now we don’t even have confirmation of part of the story) there is no point in assuming anything about Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner, Jordyn Woods, Tristan Thompson or Khloe Kardashian.

For all those people who’d say, “why do you care about these people’s lives anyways?” I’d say because you get attached to people whether you’re watching them in the public eye or know them in real life…and also because most of us can relate to being played by shady people and being shady ourselves. Nobody’s perfect, but all of us have felt the pain of betrayal and so it is interesting to see how someone like Kylie, who I do care about, will deal with this alleged cheating situation, especially since she is also raising her young daughter, Stormi, with Travis. Travis and Kylie’s lives are intertwined in a permanent way because they share a child.

One thing this reminds me of is that personal relationships aren’t ever easy!

Baths Interview

I fell in love with Baths album Obsidian back in 2013. It is dark and sad, yet also very danceable and catchy: a rare find in my opinion. Anyways, Baths (aka Will Wiesenfeld who originates from California) took the stage (in Nike running pants, which I found entertaining) at Fortune Sound Club last night.

The crowd was clearly really into his music and his set flew by (I can easily get bored at shows, but this was not the case at his show). Part way through the set he mentioned that he’s sick, but I never would have know since his voice was incredible, clear, and powerful.

If you’re feeling down and want to wallow in your sorrows while listening to some beautiful indie electronic music download some Baths asap!

 

 

 

 

AB-SOUL at FORTUNE: Gentlemanly Ways!

AB-SOUL-Fortune Sound-Oct 15th, 2014.

I’m 5’1 and I often go to hip-hop shows alone. It can be so annoying how pushy and aggressive guys are (tonight one guy tried to put his hands around my waist and then grabbed my butt when he walked by me later, even though I had already asked him twice not to touch me).

It doesn’t stop me from going to enjoy the music I love live, and I can stand up for myself…but, the following video shows that AB-SOUL and his “crew” ain’t down with pushing the ladies around:

FYI: “smashing” can refer to having sex (i.e. “I wanna smash” means a guy/girl wants to have sex). People can also be smashed around and that double meaning is what they’re talking about:

“It ain’t even that type of party. Smash the girls, but you don’t smash the girls. What the f%$# is going on?”

Thanks to AB-SOUL and his compatriots for setting the tone. It didn’t stop guys from being pushy (alcohol probably makes that impossible). Still, this is the first time I’ve been at a show where the male artists ask the men in the audience to respect females and give them space.

THE SHOW WAS INCREDIBLE! I sweat buckets and ended up with crazy, frizzy hair but it was all worth it. Ab-Soul is a very engaging performer, his songs are awesome, and he deserves to be the centre-of-attention up there on the stage.
