I don’t know how he does it, but every time I try not to be impressed, G-Dragon ends up doing the opposite.
Don’t get me wrong. I’ve been a fan of Big Bang since they were born. Even watched their documentary as it was airing.
But there was a point when Big Bang/G-Dragon and I had a falling out (because you know, we were intimately involved -_-).
I really respect G-Dragon for his music and artistic perspective, but at times, there are things that he does that just makes me raise an eyebrow…(like not wearing pants…. and wearing…whatever the heck that is)
He can at times be a little too much, so my attention went elsewhere.
To be honest, MichiGO or Coup d’Etat didn’t really hang onto my ear, so I was just meh when it came to his new album. But when the little dude decided he’s going to release his album in three parts, I should have known he had something up his sleeve.
Part 1 was okay. Nothing extraordinary that caught my attention.
And then came part 2.
Well, let’s just say the only song I’ve been listening to all day is Crooked.
The beat, the rap, the singing. But mostly the lyrics.
On the outer layer, it just sounds like an energetic, power to ya kind of song, but once you hear the lyrics, your whole viewpoint will change for Crooked.
It’s actually a really sad breakup song, which explains why G-Dragon is dramatically crying in a shower stall at the end of the video. When I’m listening to this song, this bubble of anguish that has been silently sitting at the bottom of my gut rises up and just swallows me whole. If it was that time of the month, I’m sure I might have shed a tear or two (TMI Grace, TMI).
I have no idea why the song hits home for me, but now I’m just stuck.
I guess the point of this post is to say that no matter what G-Dragon does that I like or don’t like, it really doesn’t matter. Because at the end of the day, he’s just an artistic genius that automatically attracts attention and ropes you back to him.
Ugh, I hate/love G-Dragon.
On an ending note:
I like this picture.
