petition for louis to tweet a picture of his dog 2k14
this tour has honestly become the harry styles pride parade
looking at zayn scrambles my brain into pure ‘fuck this ass’ mode so i understand but pls i love zayn for more than his perfectly crafted face. i...
Harry’s been on a roll:
- tthrowing shade in perfume interviews so hard he was literally taken out in the next one (turned out he wasn’t “feeling well”) (x)
- tweeting lyrics to a song called Secrets that basically says he’s passive aggressive and “so gay” and he doesn’t care if people know about his secrets (x / x)
- tweeting “shady warehouse” which is a very, um, not straight video (x)
- wearing a blue bandana when a fan thing said to wear bandanas in different colors depending what boy was their fav. Obviously blue was Louis’ color. (x)
- some more tweeting “It all comes out in the wash” (x)
- -not giving any fucks about what people think about him, quote “LONG HAIR DONT CARE” (x)
- giving thumbs up to people with rainbow/larry signs (x) (there’s more than this)
- wearing a Minnie Mouse bow during a show (x / x)
- taking the mic d (x)
- standing up for himself (x) but being nice about it (x)
- generally being unchill
basically harry’s cruising and it’s great. im sure there’s more, add stuff people
- wearing Michael Sam’s jersey (x)
one of my coworkers got a call (i work in a call center/tech support) from a customer that was really scared because supposedly the mafia was hacking her computer and they were stalking her…when finally my coworker took remote control of the computer he couldn’t stop laughing because
we’ve already discussed this….when your team does absolutely nothing to put your name out there or promote your album, when your music video director blatantly plagarizes another band’s video (you and i/clubfeet), and when you don’t do any interviews or go on any shows, you become less and less relevant.
so no…not all that odd given the circumstances
Okay, so this? THIS MAKES ME FURIOUS. ANYONE can get a VMA nomination, but the biggest band in the world right now can’t???
I’m sorry, but I see people suggest that perhaps Modest aren’t all that terrible, because after all, the boys are all famous and rich and the tour is pretty much sold out, right?
Wrong. This total lack of anything that could remotely resemble pr is going to fuck them in the end.
The VMAs are low-hanging fruit; getting the boys a nomination, especially given Story Of My Life had a video that people really enjoyed, should have been childs-play. Failing to have any basic representation at an a big industry event (especially at an event which is the equivalent of a youth fun-run where everyone gets a prize for attendance) is a pretty fucking spectacular fail and it’s as good as announcing to the entire music industry “we’re not relevant”
I am ANGRY about this, this is professionally negligence. This is inexcusable. It doesn’t matter how successful someone is, you don’t stop promoting them, or they just disappear. That’s how the entertainment industry works. Hell, that’s how everything works. Do you know how much money Coke and McDonalds spend on advertising? And it’s to stay number 1 in their industry. Brand and celebrity profiles are like sharks; they have to keep moving or they die.
Modest are failing on all fronts - they won’t level up and let the boys aim for the target audience that actually suits their current age and sound, but they won’t bother to do the sort of promo that appeals to their younger fans (like, you know, interviews and music videos and award show performances/red carpets) outside of slinging cookies and perfume to the tween market.
So instead they’re doing… pretty much nothing. They’re not doing a damn thing to attract new fans, young or old, but they sure are doing plenty to drive existing fans away. We’ve now heard multiple accounts of them deliberately diverting industry attention away from 1D and towards 5SOS. Slowly, but surely they are suffocating the band and the fandom.
So I’m calling you out, Modest: You are SHIT. You are BARELY EVEN TRYING and you are ACTIVELY CAUSING HARM TO THEIR CAREERS. The day the boys announce that they’re signing with a new management team, I’m going to throw a freaking parade because you are all fucking terrible at your jobs.
And just to add on to the “they had a concert schedule that day” thing - so did Maroon 5 and they cut to Maroon 5 performing at their concert! so the concert thing is no excuse…if they had wanted them there and if 1D’s team had agreed to it, they would have made it work and done a telecast from the concert like maroon 5 did.
and this is an interesting thing - like would professional negligence hold water in the court system if 1D somehow said MM didn’t live up to their end of the deal? hard to say without knowing the behind the scenes stuff.
