Writing is…. being able to take something whole and fiercely alive that exists inside you in some unknowable combination of thought, feeling, physicality, and spirit, and to then store it like a genie in tense, tiny black symbols on a calm white page. If the wrong reader comes across the words, they will remain just words. But for the right readers, your vision blooms off the page and is absorbed into their minds like smoke, where it will re-form, whole and alive, fully adapted to its new environment.

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (2011) dir.Göran Olsson

“This whole, kind of, falling in love with black things for a short period of time is essentially racist. It still is hypothesized on a great sense of separateness and a sense of treating black activities as a kind of curiosity; either benign or threatening, one or the other. When it’s threatening, ‘Oh my god, they’re going to riot or something’. And if it’s benign, ‘Let’s let them paint or draw or sing or dance, whatever they want to do. Until we, the white community, get tired of it’ and that whole structure, is essentially racist.”

Pretty Hurts was originally written for Katy Perry lmao can u imagine

This is actually true. Sia wrote the song and e-mailed it to Katy Perry but she never read her e-mails. So she sent it to Rihanna, who didn’t pay the fee to keep the song. Finally when she sent the song to Beyoncé, she immediately took it. 

When Katy Perry heard the song, she asked why Sia hadn’t sent it to her first… Sia replied: Check your e-mail.
