  1. That has to be the album title!
  2. Everything is possible, I mean, it's golden at least (even though it says bronze in the hashtags...), but my wild guess is they were just lazy... Anyway, I could be wrong.
  3. I have a theory – maybe they originally used the hashtags just because of Mika's car and then when posting the second post they just copied the exact same hashtags without realizing that it has nothing to do with Mika... At least I think so.
  4. Me too but I don't want to hurt anyone with my singing...
  5. Maybe they will meet after the show... Shawn Mendes tweeted some time ago (and even posted in his instastories) that he used to love dancing to Grace Kelly.
  6. Why not? It supposedly boosts creativity and some artists use it... (just joking, I'm not a fan of drugs)
  7. And hopefully he is coming up with a baby name soon and the baby won't be called I've just had sex with this bassline for real.
  8. I saw this today on YouTube, it's from Sunday, I didn't even know that there's The Voice in my country (I don't watch TV very often)... :lmfao:

    Verstehe, manchmal weiß man auch nicht, ob da ein Ton überhaupt ist oder nicht, bin dann immer enttäuscht, wenn ich meine Kopfhörer umsonst suche...

    Troye Sivan

    No idea how many of you know or like this Australian singer, I'm quite a fan of him since his last album Bloom but that's not the reason why I decided to create this topic. He recently gave an interview which made me think of Mika: Singer Troye Sivan has highlighted the lack of openly LGBT+ music artists in a recent interview. The My My My! singer acknowledged the increase of openly LGBT+ musicians, but said that there is still no queer equivalent of Beyoncé, Rihanna, or Taylor Swift. “I think we’re in a really interesting time in music right now where we are seeing more and more queer artists pop up, but we don’t have a queer Taylor Swift, we don’t have a queer Rihanna, or a queer Beyoncé,” he said, speaking on an episode of Will Young and Chris Sweeney’s Homo Sapiens podcast, released on January 24. Sivan also speculated as to whether he would do better commercially if he wasn’t gay. “I have a great management team and great label, and I haven’t had this conversation with anyone else in fear because I hate it, hate it, hate it when pop stars sound bitter, or blame any sort of lack of success on anything other than for themselves,” he said. However, the 23-year-old star said: “Part of me wonders sometimes if I would be more commercially successful if I wasn’t gay or not as ‘in your face gay.’ Still, Sivan, who released his second album Bloom in August 2018, did admit that his current success could “100 percent” just be down to his music. “Maybe the music just isn’t good enough, maybe the world is obsessed with hip hop right now and I’m making the furthest thing from hip hop,” he said. “It could be a myriad other things, but a part of me wonders sometimes, is the world actually ready right now for what I’m trying to be?” (source: https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2019/01/30/troye-sivan-beyonce-rihanna-taylor-swift/) I saw people criticizing him a lot for these words, saying he is famous just because he is gay and that his music isn't good enough etc., but I kind of think he isn't wrong. I know it's been years since Grace Kelly was banned in America for being too gay, but I still think there are a lot of homophobic people in the society. I was just wondering what do you think about it? It also made me think of the song Good Guys...
  13. Hi girls, I hope some of you can join me on this very "girly" topic. Tomorrow it's Valentine's day and even though I'm not a fan of this holiday it always make me think of the fact that I've never been in a real relationship. It's kind of sad because it seems so easy for other people in my surroundings but impossible for me. I'm usually not the girl who complains about being single, I'm actually used to it. However, the society makes it hard sometimes, people are always asking etc. I think it's still better to be alone than to be in some toxic relationship but sometimes it makes me feel uncomfortable - once I was with two classmates and they began to talk about their relationships. I felt kind of excluded and then once of them mentioned some problems and the other said "at least you have a boyfriend" which made me feel quite bad as I was the only one who was single. Does anybody of you feel sometimes the same?

      omg I can definitely relate! (even though I'm only in year 7, my friends "date")

      Thanks @Dominika :hug:

       

      I also feel that I'm too safe in my comfort zone and that I should try to step out of it because you always hear that it feels good to try something different but to be honest, it usually feels worse... I don't know what's wrong with me but whenever I try because you never know if you haven't tried I realize it doesn't work for me. Does it make sense at all? :biggrin2:

       

      It's not just about relationships but for example I went on a date with a guy because I thought I shouldn't reject every invitation just because it feels safe to stay in your comfort zone (and dating is a huge step out of it for me) but I realize I don't really enjoy it, I mean, going to dates. I know, it sounds ridiculous but sometimes I really think there has to be something wrong with me because everyone gets so excited about dates and to me it feels like a dentist appointment (ok, it's not that bad but still, I just can't relate to most people...). :lmfao:

      If you don't enjoy dates, don't go on them :naughty: .  Go for group activities, it's easier hanging out in a crowd, and you may get to meet someone you actually want to spend time with.  I joined a folk music club, just made myself useful helping with running the club, and ended up going out with a folk singer for a while.  Though that didn't last, two other men I met there are still my friends, we've stayed in touch for years.

    Troye Sivan

    @sara09 I think he also changed the name from Gay Guys to Good Guys because of it...

    Troye Sivan

    I agree, it's bold. I actually wanted to share the video here for those who haven't seen it yet. The song is about two men having BBB. But what I really like about his music is the fact, that the lyrics are quite clever, it's not so obvious. However, the topic and the music video still could be problematic for some people...

    There was an interview with Greg Wells where he said this... I know there are some gay artists in the music industry but I think the majority of them aren't what Troye calls "in your face gay". However, his music and image is quite explicit.

    Eurovision 2019

    If anybody is interested, this is the Czech song: I have to say it was probably the best choice from the national round...
  18. Oh thanks, I didn't notice the giraffe even though I saw the instastories twice... 🦒

    Ich auch! Da fällt mir ein, welchen Cover findet ihr eigentlich am besten? Ich glaube, bei mir ist es immer noch LICM und dann mag ich auch die von Sinfonia Pop und Songbook. Aber eigentlich gefallen mir alle bis auf TOOL...
  20. I googled her just yesterday, she already worked with Mika... https://www.beatrizartola.com
  21. It reminds me of this scene...
  22. Hi girls! 😘

    I few days ago I've ordered Songbook from Amazon (I know I'm late as Mika...). I always thought I don't need it as there aren't any new songs (with a few exceptions, but I already own the majority of them). However, now I have it in my collection too and I have to reorganize my whole CD shelf because of the new CDs I've ordered... :naughty: This is also happening with my bookshelfs all the time.

     

    P.S. Feeling a bit better this week. :group_hug:
