(Not) Very surprised to see another mindless doodle on one of many text books I own. I love scribbling out anything that comes into mind, song lyrics, poets, movie scene, my dreams, hopes, fear; and clearly that day I was heavy on Michael Clifford. The red haired dude. With tons of cool tattoos. Who played electric guitar. The man of my dreams. Now I realize that I’m not that into him anymore (my dearest God I am a kid). It’s not like the love and adoration fade away, I still love his music, the way he rocks that guitar, the majestic look he has on stage, it’s just the fact that he’s no longer single probably got me (I am a teenager with hormonal imbalance this is so embarassing). He no longer holds the appeal. Not in the way he did 2 years ago. To say that I don’t approve of his relationship status / who is he going out with would be too overrated. I’m not his mum. I mean, I’m genuinely happy that he’s found someone to love (really? I’m talking about love?) and post instagram picture with. And do adventurous holiday with. But Mikey & his girlfriend arent ship-able 😭. They look good together but they’re not ship-able. They’re not shipping materials. For me anyway.
Then I realize how crucial it is for the management to control the media play. Because fans -girls- fantasize (crazy I know). You can’t just let your artists date whoever they want. They will lose their appeal. Hence less album selling, less concert tickets, less money yada yada yada. They either stay single or the management will pick someone for them (of course it has to go through survey, media testing, endless stalking on social media about what the fans want, what’s best on todays market; it’s on their job desc isn’t it?) Now it makes a lot more sense for the staged pairings and PR stunt. Take Zayn X Gigi for example. Who wouldn’t love to see that power couple rise?
Oh. The entertainment industry.
PS: Don’t mind me and my random thoughts. I’m in the middle of a very stressful cramming and clearly, I’m looking for distractions.
