so you may have seen Ariana Grande has been called out for "blackfishing" Blackfishing is the phenomenon when someone who is white attempts to look either mixed or black, especially for social or financial gain. Ariana Grande has been doing something similar for years, and is recently being called out for it. Many people are surprised to find out that Ariana Grande is not even slightly a woman of color at all, she is 100% white (italian to be exact). Interesting huh? people have called out the Kardashians for this for years, but Ariana Grande has been doing it unnoticed since around 2013, and it's been getting worse. It's not just her fake tan and her lip injections that make her a blackfisher, it's her voice and affectations. yep... she literally sounds like Beyonce... it's even worse when you compare it to older videos of her talking... Katy Perry or any other white celebrity would be burned at the stake if they did this... why should it be any different for Ariana?
news Ariana Grande Is One Of The Biggest Pop Stars In The World, But Is Her Personal Life Even Bigger?
breatheheavy posted a topic in Breaking Music NewsWe can’t take our eyes off of Ariana Grande. Ariana has had the No. 1 song in the country for several weeks now, but despite critical and commercial acclaim for “Thank U, Next,” which broke several coveted streaming records on Spotify and YouTube, her personal life has become a spectacle that none of us can take our eyes off of. It’s not a problem the pint sized pop star is unaware of. During her acceptance speech for Woman of The Year at Billboard’s Women in Music event earlier this month, Ariana said 2018 was the best year in her life professionally, and the worst personally. “This is really special. I want to say that I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years in my career and one of, like, the worst years in my life,” Grande said. “I’m just saying that because I feel like a lot of people would look at someone in my position right now, Woman of the Year, an artist that could be at her peak, reaching her, you know, whatever, and think, you know, ‘She’s really got her sh*t together, she’s really on it, she has got it all.’” She added, “I do, but as far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the f**k I am doing,” the singer continued. “So yeah, it’s been a very conflicting one. I just want to say if you’re someone out there who has no idea what this next chapter is going to bring, you’re not alone in that.” Following the death of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, Ariana and ex-fiance Pete Davidson split. The SNL actor received an avalanche of hate from Ariana fans following their separation, and it took a toll on his mental health. Over the weekend, Davidson posted an alarming plea for help on Instagram. “i really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. i’m doing my best to stay here for you but i actually don’t know how much longer i can last,” he said. Ariana reportedly rushed to NBC’s SNL set to console Davidson in person, but according to TMZ she was denied entrance. Grande also inserted herself into Kanye West and Drake’s Twitter war. Kanye accused Drake of bullying and mocking him. “Guys, I know there are grown men arguing online rn but miley and I are dropping our beautiful, new songs tonight so if y’all could please jus behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that’d be so sick thank u,” Grande Tweeted. It sparked a response from Kanye, who said Ariana’s Tweet took a toll on his mental health. The recurring theme here is eerie. “I know Ariana said this to be cool and didn’t mean no harm but I don’t like even slightest level of slight commentary from someone I know loves and respects me.” He continued: “All of this foolishness weighed on my mental health so @ArianaGrande you know I got love for you but until you’re ready to really make sure everyone’s ok don’t use me or this moment to promote a song.” Is Ariana Grande’s personal life splashed across the Internet so frequently because of how exceptional her music performs across the globe, or are listeners streaming the new tunes more than ever because her personal life is like a cinematic romantic tragedy? Or both? There’s no denying Ariana possesses one of the voices of our generation, but I’m not convinced her music would perform as well as it does if it wasn’t so intricately tied to her day-to-day. That’s actually a very precarious and honest place to be in career-wise. We expect our pop stars to entertain us, but it appears to be at the expense of their happiness. Ariana’s relationships with Mac Miller and Pete Davidson inspired countless stories (and dollars) across the web, but it also took center stage on “Thank U, Next.” That real life angst translated into a pop song helped sky rocket Ariana’s already stratospheric fame to new heights. Her personal and public personas are deeply integrated, and that creates peaks and valleys for the singer in both aspects of her life. Would Ariana be as successful in her career if her personal life wasn’t so public? Would we be as invested in the tunes if her breakups weren’t a twisted guilty pleasure? “Thank U, Next” made waves not only because of the catchy hooks, but because it was a comment on her relationships. We can’t have Ariana the pop star without the heartache, and that’s a tough spot to be in for a dangerous woman.

breatheheavy posted a topic in Breaking Music NewsJennifer Lopez is under fire for allegedly stealing most of her biggest hits. By the books, JLo is one of the most commercially famous musicians of our time. She has a lengthy list of famous hits, and for those of you questioning that I challenge you to fire up Spotify and confirm you're not pretty (if not VERY) familiar with at least 10 of her songs. Alright, so we've established she's a bonafide recording artist, but how? That's the point of contention. Lopez's body of work is being questioned, and it's caused a sh!t storm on the Internet. A Twitter user by the name of @PallahAbdul has a bone to pick with the triple threat. They created a thread ripping apart the singer's singles, but it's not without merit. They provide receipts, and it's undeniable that Jenny from the Bronx had a one-up on the way to the top over most rising musicians. "There is not one JLO hit that isn’t a stolen song of another artists. Not ONE," @PallahAbdul wrote. They point out multiple instances where this is seemingly the case. Spoiler alert: if you like the illusion that is Jennifer Lopez™, stop reading now. Otherwise, carry on with this fascinating uncovering. "If You Had My Love" JLo's first single, "If You Had My Love" was directly inspired by singer Chanté Moore's song, "If I Gave Love." Diddy, who played a pivotal role in creating Lopez's debut album, requested Darkchild hand "If I Gave Love" over, but couldn't due to previous agreements. Instead he created a carbon copy, and when Lopez's version blew up Moore had no choice but to scrap hers. What does it all mean? This isn't a Jennifer Lopez takedown post. But it's fascinating that she has so many instances where a track is given to her, re-recorded, yet remains so close to the original. That's obviously problematic when she's making millions of dollars and creating ripples in the fabric of music, because that means those who helped her get there aren't seeing a fraction of that financial gain or the notoriety (or even gd credit, for that matter). PopCrush points out that this could be a matter of powerful men making "behind-the-scenes power moves to accomplish something that paid off for them in some way," but I can't chalk things up to that. Lopez has been and is still very much in control of her career, so to water down her success and hits in the biz to business men's executive decisions feels irresponsible. If that's true, she could care less where the hit comes from, as long as she gets it. Meaning, artistic integrity is nowhere to be found and she's playing to grab a spot on the Hot 100. It's a realization I'm not prepared to face quite yet. So if these men in suits aren't to blame... does that mean JLo is the mastermind behind this facade? Then she's responsible for cultural appropriation and sidelining a handful of talented black men and women for her benefit. No one wins here. Another important question to ponder is: despite how the songs landed in JLo's lap... would they have seen so much commercial success had she not recorded and released them? Does it matter if she did? How many other songs has she allegedly lifted that we don't know about? Look, her star power is undeniable, and adding that special ~Jenny from the Block~ touch certainly elevates a record that might've sat on the cutting room floor otherwise. Should she go out of her way to share the wealth, or is it just the name of the game? I guess we'll have to ask Mariah, Usher, Christina Milian, Kat Deluna, 3rd Party and Natasha Ramos.
