The most compelling thing about this child singing Nina Simone in an X-Factor audition is Britney Spears’ reaction to it.

I have a soft spot for adult Britney because she so clearly does not want to be doing what she’s doing and she has pathos in her eyes always and her human bonsai tree narrative is really tragic in a way that Marilyn Monroe’s never could be because she’s gonna live. She’s gonna age and she’s gonna putter through these weird gigs and she’s gonna collect these sad checks and finance her family for a couple of decades before she peters out long enough to do some comeback work in her middle age — and that’s a strange place to be. Mapped. Diagrammed.

The tenderness in her voice when she sees a little girl walk on the stage is really touching. How quickly she cries is really touching. There’s an adult woman with bipolar disorder inside of that dress and her father has control over her finances and she is looking at a talented child on a stage and seeing herself, kind of. What if she’d just stayed in Louisiana and been a young mom there? What if this girl just stayed in New Jersey and kept doing her homework? Became a doctor. Britney’s vote is going to help shape that and there’s transference and there’s joy at hearing a talented person do their talent, but yeesh. Her emotive eyeballs.

If that’s not compelling, I don’t know what is.

Also her name is spelled phonetically and I think that’s endearing. Britney. Not Brittany. Britney.

This is genuinely fascinating to me…how the people of the internet want, love, and enjoy reality and authenticity. Why then are we almost always given the exact opposite? Maybe Lady Gaga had to be freaking crazy and weird in order for people to want to see her as a person. I can only think how lucky I am to have people want to see me be myself without first having to wear a dress made out of meat…though I know you’d all love to see that. #punishmentidea

Very interesting thoughts about a beautiful song and a person who is hard to place. Thinking about it reminds me of stargirl a little bit, people who are very unique and act radically different from other people cause turmoil in a sense. By not fitting so extraordinarily well they cause people to reasses the way they label others, the cause social orders to be rethought. They also tend to face a lot of anger and misuderstanding at some points and be greatly inspiring and admired at others.

Also, John and Hank Green have tumblr now! Yay!

I think I need to screencap this. Especially “SAY ‘NO’ MORE OFTEN.”

It’s always good to have one or two of these lists around
