Anonymous said: What are you talking with Iggy and a clear channel deal
Lemme serve up this hot tea.
So Iggy Azalea has this deal with Clear Channel which says that she has to get AT LEAST 150 spins on each radio station a day. Clear Channel is a radio company and they own almost every relevant radio station (and if not all of them).
Clear Channel is basically a force in the music industry. An example: Britney Spears’ ban from getting spins from the company because her manager didn’t want to sign a deal with her tour in the early 2000’s. That’s why her music in the early 2000’s peaked so low on Billboard but seemed like huge hits WW. With the CC ban, Britney Spears proved that she doesn’t need radio to become a relevant pop star hence why people call her a pop legend and a force in the industry.
Anyways enough with ha, Iggy’s song gets played on every relevant radio station until it gets 150 spins that day for the next update. This is responsible for:
- High US sales but low WW sales
- Fancy being her ONLY successful single
- Problem being ahead of Fancy on iTunes charts and sales wise but not airplay wise so it wasn’t able to go #1 on the BB Hot 100
The GP has turned completely from albums and onto radio. Whatever is played on the radio, they buy. That’s why Fancy is 3x platnium and was #1 for 7 weeks, because of her spins.
Blah blah blah, other than that, Iggy Azalea is trash. Iggy has airplay but yet her album hasn’t even touched 400k dispite it being out for almost 4 months. Airplay can sell singles, but can’t sell albums and the song Happy is a clear sign of that (no shade) (but yeah it kinda was). Anyways, that’s the Iggy tea.
but generic white dude #50096 got to be there
No Meagan Tandy either
Just Tposey and a see of whiteness. ok.
I know why Keanu got tired of this bullshit.
But didn’t she have like a show or an event in New York around this time called Stuck or something that’s why she couldn’t come? But yeah I see what you mean.
vagina’s are able to stretch wide enough to give birth to a fucking baby and then return to it’s original size but of course being penetrated by that grass blade you call a penis is what’s going to make it “loose”
Uhh. The baby doesnt come out of where the penis goes in…
stay in school y’all
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
this gives me hope.
mara wilson is also the faceless old woman who lives in your home, so you know she’s got your best interests at heart
Congratu-fucking-lations to Clever TV (whatever the fuck that is), Jeff Davis and the Teen Wolf Cast who were involved in that frankly ridiculous and mean display of reading aloud snippets of fanfiction.
Just think about what you did there. You took three fanfictions, small snippets from them and took them out of the context of a whole story. And then you went on to ridicule them. So now there are three people out there who are feeling shit about themselves and about their writing.
What if those were the first stories for these writers? What if these were young people who just had their confidence dashed? What if it took all of their courage to post these stories, hoping that someone, anyone, would like them, only to have their work read aloud, out of context, by people who were obviously just waiting for them to be bad?
I hope you are all really proud of yourselves. You may have just made someone vow never to try to write again, which means that they won’t ever improve on their writing because EVERYONE improves their writing over time, but you’ve taken that away from them. Some great piece of literature may never be written now, we’ll never know.
We are your fans. We are what gives the show ratings. We are who make the hype for your show, even though it is declining in quality. And you mock us? You take something that has been happening for as long as there have been works for people to write about and shit all over it. Fanfiction should be heralded, not made fun of.
THIS FUCKING SHOW IS BASICALLY FANFICTION OF A MOTHER FUCKING 80’S MOVIE STARRING MICHAEL J. FOX. ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS RIGHT NOW????
I swear to God, I am so sick of being made fun of by these people for enjoying their content. I get to enjoy it in whatever way I choose and you shouldn’t be able to make fun of me for it. You shouldn’t be calling me sick and twisted for liking a non canon pairing or telling me I’m watching it for the wrong reasons. You shouldn’t be downplaying the popularity of one of my ships in the “real world”, only to turn around and play all over that apparently only Tumblr popular ship to get ratings. You shouldn’t be making fun of me for writing fanfiction and taking the show in directions you never would and/or could.
We are fans. We are the power behind your show. Do you know how many shows get axed because they’re not popular enough? You are popular because of us. And what do you do? You put us down all the time for being fans of your show and being creative about it, being passionate about it. Well guess what, you keep going the way you’re going and no one’s going to make you one of the highest producers of fanworks anymore, that’s a pretty huge thing in this day and age. People are going to stop tuning in and there go your ratings. People are going to be so disenchanted by you making fun of us for one thing or another and they’re not going to tune in to any future works of yours in case it happens again.
Just stop. Stop shitting all over your fans. We love this show, we love these people, and you’re making it so hard for us to continue to love you.
*sighs deeply but is not surprised this happened*
Do you know what two things I find well and truly bitterly amusing?
First: one of the fics mocked was a finalist in Teen Wolf’s official fanfic contest back in 2012.
Second: LESS THAN A WEEK AGO MTV LAUNCHED THE COLLECTIVE.
They could have easily said no were not gonna do that because we respect our fans and that fucking Clevver tv shit was just doing that for views. It was really mean to the person or people who worked hard on those stories as well as people who write fan fiction for the fans not the members of the show.
Do you remember those boys that go to the ‘hood’ and mess with people all for the sake of a “prank”? Well, they went to a radio station for an interview and the hosts there called them out on their racist shit and it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Check this video out.
