I dont want sex, i want the things that lead up to it. The slow kissing then the passionate kissing, then the pulling closer, the neck kisses, the grabbing, biting, heavy breathing, grinding, the pauses while you catch your breath, feeling each other. Oh my.
Lawrence of Arabia would often put matches out between his fingers, extinguishing the flames. His fellow soldiers, surprised, would ask, “Doesn’t that hurt?” Lawrence would respond, profoundly, “The trick is not minding that it hurts.”
This is just a general note. If it doesn’t apply to you, I’m obviously not talking to you, so don’t get defensive or on my case or whatever.
So as many of us know, Cassadee Pope was on The Voice. Before she was on The Voice, she was in this awesome band called Hey Monday. Hey Monday was this sort of pop rock band. After she won The Voice, Cassadee Pope started making country music.
Everyone up to speed? Ok.
And now, every where I look, I see people accusing The Voice of ruining her.
If you don’t know the premise of the show, it’s a bit like a cross between American Idol and The X Factor. You audition, there’s four coaches. The auditions are blind so the coaches don’t know who they’re hearing, they just hear them. If a coach wants you on their team, they hit a button and turn around and see you. If one coach turns around by the end of your song, you’re automatically on their team. If more than one coach turns around, you get to pick who’s team you’re on.
The four coaches for Cassadee’s season of The Voice were Christina Aguilera, Ceelo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. All four of them are very distinct in their own musical groups, and all four of them turned around during Cassadee’s audition.
So, of course, that means that she got to choose which team she would join, and she picked Team Blake. Blake Shelton is a country singer and she damn well knew that. If she wanted to stay in more of the same vein as Hey Monday, she probably would have chosen another coach.
But she didn’t. Cassadee Pope is growing up and musical taste changes over time. It’s why bands have distinct differences between albums sometimes. It’s how new music is created. The Voice didn’t make her audition, they didn’t make her choose Team Blake, they didn’t make her pursue a country album later. She herself said it in an interview on the show: this was the direction she wanted to go.
Stop saying that The Voice ruined Cassadee Pope, because they didn’t. If anything, you should be thanking The Voice for finally getting this amazing artist a solo record deal.
imagine being in ravenclaw and going back to your common room stumbling drunk in the middle of the night after a magical night of partying and having to answer a fucking riddle in order to get in your own goddamn bedroom
"what gets wetter and wetter the more it dries" "your mom eeyyyyyyy"
This is why Ravenclaws need wingmen. So instead of having a designated driver, they have a designated riddle-answerer.
