it was weird to witness. the unravelling and rebuilding of today’s equivalent of lennon and yoko (my blog, my opinion).
you didn’t know a lot about them so you didn’t really care. but the transparency that they showed in their music opened up the eyes of the world and made them focus on something that they didn’t really feel the need to pay attention to. the teachers brought the class back in order to teach them a lesson.
the king and queen of music revealed their imperfections. he admitted to his mistakes. she showed the world that she was not goals. regardless of whether or not it was a marketing stunt or not, it took courage. to air out your dirty laundry to the world.
infidelity. forgiveness. love? their love. over the course of two years, they put an end to the speculation. he apologised for the womanising and the pain that it caused her. he rapped about how he doesn’t want his children to ever have to know how he treated their mum. she sang “true love’s the greatest weapon to win the war caused by pain, but every diamond has imperfections but my love’s too pure to watch it chip away oh nothing real can be threatened, true love breathes salvation back into me, with every tear came redemption and my torturer became my remedy.”
her forgiveness. his remorse. in an age of #relationshipgoals, they put things into perspective. not everything that glitters is gold.
