7 Problems Only Blondes Understand

Sunday, January 18, 2015
'Blondes Have More Fun' - we're all familiar with this saying, right?! Despite, possibly, having 'more fun,' I'm here to tell you the truth about being a blonde. Trust me, it's hard work! Only about 2% of the world's population is naturally blonde, so if, like me, you're an 'unnatural blonde,' you can possibly, almost certainly, relate to the following problems;

1) Long, blonde hair = BIMBO - Think about this. Four girls are lined up against a wall. One of them has long brunette hair. Another has long blonde hair. One of them has short brown hair, the other, short blonde hair. Now, if somebody was asked to pick the 'bimbo' out of the four, it's almost sure they'll go straight for the girl with the long, blonde hair. I've encountered this problem many times and truthfully, it sucks. I blame the likes of 'Playboy' and 'dumb celebrities' for giving us this reputation. I can't tell you how many times people have said 'oh, you're so blonde sometimes.' Not everybody will agree with this, but I'm certain most can relate.

2) Being blonde is not cheap! - You're probably visiting the salon every four to six weeks to keep on top of your roots. You probably have a piggy bank dedicated to salon money. And let's face it, you've probably tried to save a few pounds attempting a DIY colour-kit (but let's not mention that.)

Sia's "Elastic Heart" Music Video - My Interpretation

Thursday, January 08, 2015

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past day or two, you simply cannot avoid the hype that is surrounding Sia's new music video for her latest song off the '1000 Forms of Fear' album - "Elastic Heart."

The video features familiar face Maddie Ziegler, (Chandelier, anybody?), and a personal favourite of mine, Shia LaBeouf. Directed by the Aussie pop singer and Daniel Askill, the video features Ziegler and LaBeouf performing an intense and emotional interpretive dance sequence inside what appears to be a giant birdcage. 

However, the music video, which premiered just over 24 hours ago, has already received much criticism and negativity, with many online users calling it 'disturbing' and even suggesting pedophelia. 

Unfortunately, art isn't for everybody. Some people would much prefer to watch Ariana Grande shoot missiles out of her breasts against a horrific, fail of a green-screen (watch her video "Break Free"). It is a shame because  this really is a stunning visual with a real thought provoking power. Users see a middle-aged man and a younger girl and automatically assume it is inappropriate. Not having a artistic mind-set is inappropriate in my eyes.

In my opinion, both Ziegler and LaBeouf are playing characters that are representing Sia. Ziegler represents her harsh past and bad habits, and I believe this is clear when looking back and analysing the 'Chandelier' video and lyrics. LaBeouf represents the 'new' Sia, strong and powerful, yet trying ever so hard to let go of the past. Let me break the video down for you.
