amajor7:

this was essentially me all through high school. i would play off my mental illness as some weird quirk and dig myself a hole of denial. tonight’s got me thinking a lot about how many people i know suffering from some form of mental illness and how many people that don’t know they’re suffering from mental illness and i just hope all of you are doing okay and you can always shoot me an email if you ever feel like talking

Headlines are meant to arouse your curiousity and incite a potent visceral reaction so that you might share it.

But not reading past the headline doesn’t help anybody. It’s sensationalized for a reason.

"I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone."

—  

Robin Williams

It’s sad to think that his quote rings truer today, if the speculations about his apparent suicide are true. 

It’s utterly tragic to think he would commit suicide.

I am unwavering in my conviction that there is a distinction between a purpose in one’s life, and the collective, general philosophy of ‘the meaning of life’—and I don’t believe there is any meaning to life. You live and you die—that is the indisputable blueprint of everyone’s life. But that shouldn’t convince you to live a life devoid of happiness or without a sense of purpose. Nihilism is not synonymous with negativity or pessimism, and it isn’t an excuse to end your life; the meaningless of life should emancipate you from the pressure of conforming so that you can embody your own calling. How do you define the meaning of life among seven billion people who each live by their own creed? You can’t possibly, without pigeonholing and contradicting yourself. You must be free to define and find comfort in the winding path of your life, and then feel empowered to live for the sake of living. For the sake of seeing what the future holds; for the sake of continuing to live out the destiny that you envision for yourself. 

I am okay with being a ‘small potato’ in this world. A minority, who is disenfranchised, and who will, for the most part, live a quiet life. But most importantly, I am also unafraid and equally determined to help the marginalized community that I so proudly belong to, even if, as I say, there is no meaning to life. Because hey, I am already alive, and as long as I am still living, I will do all that I can to be a proponent of positivity, peace, and compassion—no matter how microscopic my existence is to this world.

"Recover. The most human of words, the implication being that healthy normal life is covering something—the violence that is there underneath."

Lady Gaga and Coty introduce EAU DE GAGA. Created with Gaga’s visionary fragrance powerhouse, Haus Laboratories, this exciting new scent captures the pure essence of Gaga. Dangerously daring, EAU DE GAGA represents the future of a scent that appeals to both men and women; nothing is off-limits.

EAU DE GAGA is an enigmatic scent, fusing daringly diverse elements to create a beguiling allure. The fragrance is built around a beautiful heart of white violet, an intoxicating flower that fuses male and female attractions. To counterbalance this opulent woody-floral intensity, the scent opens with an invigorating burst of sparkling lime that exudes dynamic vibrancy. And it evolves into a sensual trail based on leather, adding a primal quality to the scent.

The striking EAU DE GAGA bottle mirrors the perfume by uniting masculine and feminine design aesthetics. Its stark lines and sleek black lacquered finish deliver a bold statement in simplicity. For an added touch of luxury, the front of the flacon is adorned with a silver name plate that is printed with the words “Paris – New York” and the number 001. The names of the two cities reflect Haus Laboratories’ global identity and the number 001 represents the beginning of a long story, one which is still to be continued. And for the most devoted Little Monsters, the Ultimate Masterpiece 75ml version comes in an elegant red folding jewelry box in which the bottle rests on a sumptuous black velvet.

Like the campaign for Lady Gaga Fame, the EAU DE GAGA campaign was shot by Steven Klein and stars Gaga herself. EAU DE GAGA Eau de Parfum 15ml, 30ml, 50ml and 75ml will be available at retailers worldwide from September 2014.

Fame was a clear bottle with black liquid, and now Eau de Gaga is an opaque black bottle with presumably clear liquid. It’s a simple dichotomy but I don’t think I’d be wrong if I said it was a commentary about the evolution of her fame. The ad campaign also reflects a similar distinction—Fame had her larger than life, a gargantuan figure with men clawing to get to her, and now normalized among men. Can’t wait to see what the video campaign adds.
