Ok just a spoiler alert if you haven’t read the first part of my blog post for Miss Americana Documentary then here is the link. I would suggest that you would go and read the first part then come back and read the second part of this blog. Here’s the link to the first part of this blog post if you either haven’t read it or want to start reading it before reading the second part of this blog. https://aflaggs93.wordpress.com/2020/01/31/my-thoughts-on-the-miss-americana-documentary/
In the last blog post I was talking about the documentary and here’s the second part of this blog post. For so many years this talented young lady was forced to stay silence by the label for not only on her views but she wasn’t even allowed to even speak her own mind. Sometimes I feel that way too as people tell me not to say anything and I should just keep my own mouth shut. Sometimes I feel that they don’t want me to say whatever it is that is on my mind.
As a blogger myself who has been blogging since my freshman year of community college I do truly say that its perfectly OK to go and speak your mind whether if its to your friends or to anyone else even to your family members. But if I were you tell them sooner or later so that in the end you won’t feel guilty about it. Also don’t hide it inside of you to where it maybe too late to get whatever it is that has been on your mind and has been bothering you out. Whether if its moving back home and not having a opportunity in life, school or just about anything else in between that is getting to you.
Just like Taylor and getting whatever it is that’s on her mind through songwriting and music the way I get whatever it is that on my mind I blog about it, write about it in my fan fictions or other novels on wattpad. If a person is forcing you to keep your mouth shut and your being force to stay silence and not to speak its OK to speak up and speak out on things that’s going on today and what’s on your minds. You are your own person and you have a voice and no one can stop you from speaking up or speaking your mind. Whether if its at school, at home or on the job, at a meeting or where ever it maybe at tell that person how you truly feel about it in a heartfelt and honest way.
Just like in the song Only The Young From the Miss Americana Documentary she was able to write about her frustration with everything that was going on back in 2016 to now she is saying not to go and keep your mouth shut about what is going on in the world but also in our own back yards. Another song from her Lover album that has a similar reference to everything that is currently going on right now is a song called Miss Americana and The Heartbreak Prince. The same way is with other Youtubers and members of the New Black Media which they aren’t silent about anything.
So whenever I listen to Miss Americana& The Heartbreak Prince I start to visualize myself telling my own story. Even with the theme of this song having a high school theme to it. I visualize myself telling my own story with some of the things that she’s talking about in this song. I also visualize some of the lyrics in this as if I’m filming my own visual story for all of the world to see. I even imagined scenes from the Out Of The Woods Music video from her 1989 album as well as myself standing in a room that has newspaper on the wall and the room is burning. https://youtu.be/Kwf7P2GNAVw
You might ask me where and how did I even imagine or had came up with those scenes from those music videos. Another video that I had imagined was from the See No More music video by Joe Jonas from the FastLife album along with Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start The Fire which was a project that I had once did in high school US History class. In both of those music videos you will know what I’m talking about with the fire but back to the blog post. As I was watching those videos I started to imagined my own visual story being told at my old high school and in the downtown part of my hometown. As you are listening to these songs visualizing your own story or her music or anyone’s music just go and ask yourself do you want to be on the right side of history where we stand together for people who wants an opportunity just ask yourself that question in your head while watching the Miss Americana documentary on netflix if you haven’t watched it yet.
