The only rules that really matter are these: what a man can do and what a man can’t do. For instance, you can accept that your father was a pirate and a good man or you can’t. But pirate is in your blood, boy, so you’ll have to square with that some day.

FOUR YEARS AGO ON FEBRUARY 6, 2016 - BEYONCÉ RELEASED “FORMATION.”
The song received critical acclaim, and was the most searched song of 2016, according to Google. “Formation” was nominated for three Grammy Awards and won in the category “Best Music Video.” Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Time Magazine, Complex, Fuse, NPR, and Paste magazine considered the song the best one of 2016. In 2019, “Formation” was included on several year-end lists by magazines, including Essence and Parade, referring to it as the greatest song of the decade.
“When Beyoncé does something, you listen. Not just because her lyrics are infectious and her beats are always catchy, but because if she has something to say, you know it’s going to be important. Her latest music video, for the new single “Formation,” might be one of her most important songs yet. The video dives deep into the issues that the black community is currently facing, from police brutality to unrealistic standards of beauty. The timing is perfect, considering it is Black History Month. And if you know Beyoncé, you know that nothing she does is a coincidence. She’s got something to say, and she’s going to make sure you hear her loud and clear. It is a literal ode to black culture, and it makes no apologies for that. People who say that they “don’t get” this video or that it’s not “speaking to them” need not apply: it’s not for the entire world to approve of, or even consume. Beyoncé does not need the world’s approval, she has her own.” — TEEN VOGUE, (2016)
It would never have worked out between us.
I’m glad someone noticed! I feel it was somewhat my duty to make some gifs of him, in support. I’m gonna continue to make gifs too, so expect more :D
It’s after you, not the ship. It’s not us. This is the only way, don’t you see?
I agree wholeheartedly that Johnny deserves to have the role of Jack Sparrow re-offered to him. That man adored the hell out of that character. I also agree that Disney is partly to blame for the hurt he has received in the past few years. But, in saying that, it could also be said for lots of companies and millions of people. Everyone jumped the gun pretty damn quickly in judging a situation that they didn’t have the full context to. They listened to one side of the story and completely dismissed the other side. I am included in this and I regret it deeply.
On a side note, I am quite horrified and finding it pretty hypocritical that with all this evidence that has come to fruition this week, Amber has still got her roles in all the organisations that she is apart of. It has been proven and painted pretty clearly for everyone to see that she was an abuser. What makes it worse is she thought she could get away with it.
There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.
