omg ok well while i was home from university this weekend i stumbled across an old photo album and found pictures from a job I did when I was in like 5th or 6th grade and I remember the shoot being pretty long, like 4 or 5 days, and just being in love with the girl who played my sister. All i really remember was that it was her first acting gig and she was from Kentucky but I DIDNT REALIZE UNTIL NOW THAT IT WAS JENNIFER LAWRENCE OH MY GOD I KNEW HER BEFORE SHE WAS FAMOUS WORSHIP ME PEOPLE WORSHIP ME
if you’re going to reblog a picture of jennifer lawrence at this time, let it be this one. Look, she’s reading harry potter, and 12 year old me is looking at her like the sun shines out of her ass.
Last year, when One Direction released “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks),” a combination Blondie/Undertones cover they recorded for charity, the Guardian’s Adam Boult was prompted to start a list of songs that “must never be covered.” Never mind that 1D’s medley got a seal of approval from Blondie’s Debbie Harry herself; Mr. Boult said it was an “abomination” that somehow “tarnished” the original versions. So it’s not about the gender of the artist doing the cover—it’s about the gender (and age) of their fans. Think about it: Young, poppy acts, have largely young, female fan bases. I believe the reason rockist dudes feel so dang uncomfortable watching these artists cover songs by bands they love is that it points out that they might have something in common with fans of Miley, Lorde, 1D, etc. They might actually have something in common with teenage girls. And what could be worse than that?
Here’s what I want to tell these people: You could do a lot worse than sharing a teenage girl’s taste in music. The pantheon of acts who couldn’t have gotten famous without the support of teenage girls includes a lot of people and bands you probably respect a lot: Michael Jackson. Elvis Presley. The fricking BEATLES. When Nirvana were around, most of their fans weren’t 50-year-old rock critics; they were kids.
