So I was watching Jason Aldean and a couple of other artists talk about main issues that the US has on Billboard.com for the 2012 election and they all had great things to say; gay rights, health care, environmental sustainability, and the list goes on. Jason Aldean goes on to say that hes watched the price of our dollar go down and that we need to keep our money in house and not give it to other countries. Though that is true, it just made me a little angry that hes the one that said it. If someone who wasnt making millions of dollars said it, I’d be all for it but he just sounded so wounded by it that he wasnt making every cent he could bleed out of us for his music. Coming from him it sounded like “maybe if our country wasn’t so much in debt, there wouldn’t be bootlegging as much and more people would pay for the music that I worked hard to produce and I’d have even more money to brag about.”
This is why I stick to listening to only the music and not learning the artists names and every single detail about them. I probably only noticed this because I like to nitpick about things, even things that I fabricate and I’m sorry if he didn’t actually mean anything by this but I felt the need to rant about it so here it is, y’all..
I’m just gonna go ahead And use tumblr as my ranting time because I just feel like a big load of emotional shit bottled up in a mentors and diet coke bomb seconds before it explodes. I sat in Wednesday night teen class for church and we wrote letters to our two college students and I was writing mine and glanced over to my crush. He, of course with perfect tiny handwriting, has to write a letter with every white space filled in with words to the girl who denied him because she wants to finish medical school before she finds a guy to be serious with. Of course I have to talk that opportunity to not read it and look away so I’m sure what I thought he wrote was more gushy than he actually did but it made me feel about twenty times worse. This guy, who I was planning on asking to prom this year, and this girl he’s waiting 8-15 years for… why should I even ask him? Its not like its ever gonna mean what I want it to mean anyways. No one even ever has to read this but just writing it out and getting onto my virtual paper makes me feel a little better. Hopefully I can just get over prom and not even worry about asking anyone because i Dont even want to go anymore. If someone asks me first I’ll be amazed.
