This is my mom. She spent the past 23 years at home raising 6 kids, one with Down's, and being completely selfless for us. Her only personal outlet is singing, and today she got signed on as the lead singer in a cover band in Austin, TX! It's never too late to reach those dreams and I'm so proud ♥️

Hi I'm Ellie Goulding, singer-songwriter, kickboxer and activist - ask me anything! - AMA
Hi everyone. This is my first AMA! I'm excited to answer your questions. You may know me from songs like "Love Me Like You Do" from the Fifty Shades soundtrack, "Burn" and "Anything Can Happen" to name a few. After 5 years since my last album, I just released my 4th, "Brightest Blue," last week and announced my first run of 2021 UK tour dates and the Brightest Blue Experience: a one-off, one of a kind immersive show curated especially for my fans, broadcasting live from the legendary Victoria ＆ Albert Museum in London on August 26th.

How do I tell my 4 year old she's a horrible singer?
It makes more sense to be a fan of famous scientists, mathematicians, engineers, doctors, etc than being a fan of actors, singers, dancers, etc
I agree that entertainment & fun is necessary but my friends & family can sufficiently make me happy.
On the other hand, we need doctors, scientists, etc for the advancement & well being of our species. Their work seem more important. Taking their autographs & photographs should be a thing.
Maybe "fan" is not the correct word for what I am trying to say.
I am not saying that art should be under-appreciated rather the people who do more important stuff should be given more importance than what they currently get.

Hey friends!

I see your "Who's your favorite singer?" and I raise you this!
I can’t stand when idols (vocalists) are shit singers
I genuinely can’t stand it.
I understand that a massive part of the idol industry and entertainment is based on looks and performance, but if you cannot even hold a single note, why and how have you debuted as an idol? Surely in any job, in any industry, the main prerequisite would be to actually be competent enough to do the job, no?
It frustrates me to no end when a company debuts someone who clearly cannot fulfil the role that being an idol demands. There’s one idol in particular (who I won’t name, and who I don’t dislike at all) who is currently in a popular group, but is an absolutely shocking singer. They cannot hold one single note. Not only that, but their performance is shocking too. They are an extremely average dancer, and have dead facial expressions the whole time. Why are you even an idol? More so, how the hell did the company think it was a good idea to debut them, when they’re clearly not trained enough and incompetent? I mean, I know why the company debuted them -

3rd gen idols are singers who can dance. 4th gen idols are dancers who can sing.
So first of all I'm not English and I only used my English abilities to write this text so sorry if I made grammar mistakes.
I don't have a lot more to say than the title but yeah, 4th gen idols are not as good singers as over gens idols (I don't speak about Jongho, Yuqi, Nina...who are absolutely awesome but in generality). Instead of having amazing vocal abilities like Exo, Red Velvet or Mamamoo members, 4th gen idols are litteraly dance machines and some idols are more performers than singers. It's like agencies trained them more as dancers than singers.
For examples (no hate at all, I love all these groups) :
Red Velvet have one "iconic" dancer (Seulgi) when Itzy actually have 4 main dancers material out of 5 members ?
EXO have like 9 main vocals, even the main rapper is a better singer than some group's main vocalist. (I didn't count Chinese members because I don't know them well) when Ateez have 8 main dancers (here too, I don't speak about Ateez vocalists who are just amazin
