                    こんばんは!ONE OK ROCK です!

Their infamous panty dance! ^-^
HAPPY PERVY MONDAY! *\(^-^)/*

I really hope their new album won't crash and burn because of Taka's latest ventures. I mean its great he's having a blast with band mates from ISSUE and such but I wanna still have faith that just cuz he's having fun doesn't mean oor's music will suffer. I mean I understand the concerns especially with recent single. But still. Being an artist is all about experimentation. Shouldn't be punished for being social.

elsiechapman:

Hello! Okay, normally I don’t publish asks unless the user says to specifically do so because I feel like they are a private matter. But I’m also really tired of feeling like a bit of a target, having recently shared my opinions on Taka/OOR/change of direction with a bunch of anons I received. So my apologies if this ask isn’t meant to be a direct reaction to those replies, but it kind of reads that way, so I’ll respond as such.

Yeah, all artists are free to experiment, and SHOULD do so in order to grow, etc. It’s what creativity is all about. But it’s also a fact that sometimes an artist HAS to fail before they realize, well, holy shit, maybe this direction isn’t for the best. OR they might not even care if they don’t have the same success because it’s THEIR career and they can do whatever they want with it. It’s up to them.

But. All of that has nothing to do with their social lifestyle. I don’t understand why you are making them into the same issue with this statement: "Being an artist is all about experimentation. Shouldn’t be punished for being social."

That last sentence right there is why I’m posting this ask publicly. Because I feel like my opinion is being completely misconstrued here. Just because I think Taka’s behaviour is childish doesn’t mean I think OOR’s next album should die a painful death. Neither does it mean I think they don’t have the right to act that way. I’ve seen some comments here twisting those statements into something else entirely, and it’s such an ill-educated and ignorant reaction that I’m laughing my ass off over the stupidity of some OORers here. An opinion on a BEHAVIOUR isn’t an opinion on whether or not they have the right to behave that way. Two VERY different things. Just as an artist’s choice of lifestyle and the resulting musical integrity of their product shouldn’t be lumped together, regardless of whether or not one influences the other—in the end, the product is the product, no matter how it came about.

TL; DR: OOR can do whatever they like. Personal time, in the studio, whatever. That’s their right, regardless of how anyone feels about it, or how it comes across. I just hope their next album is OOR through and through and not some sad take on 1990s western oriented pop. 

mindythings:

what’s the point of being a fan if you’re not a critical one? what’s the point of absorbing media without the intention of analyzing it? i don’t understand why some people wholeheartedly defend their faves’ flaws and shortcomings, when pointing out and not supporting your faves’ problematic aspects DOES NOT MAKE YOU ANY LESS OF A FAN BUT MAKES YOU AN ENGAGED AND AWARE CONSUMER

tinioor:

The new menu of their Website has changed quite a bit. apparently there is no longer the diary, but a link to each instagram account of the guys….

Is it just me or Taka's becoming really annoying now.

Anonymous

elsiechapman:

Hmm, how to answer this without getting hate.

Everyone’s got different tolerance levels for what they might find annoying. Or immature, etc. Fill in the blank. Or what they’d like to see from an artist, the ratio of personal life vs professional life, etc. Just like those artists are free to post whatever they want, on their own accounts.

That said, I cannot agree more. He’s very annoying right now.

I do feel like Taka is indulging into the Hollywood lifestyle a little too much. Thing with that is, you have to be very careful that is doesn't take over your life. Hollywood can do that to you, and I hope he doesn't fall into it.

elsiechapman:

Oh, he’s already fallen into it, WAAAAY down into it, and he’s not climbing out of it for a long, long time. Either when someone (hey, Toru, where are you dude?) kicks his ass and tells him to wake up and quit embarrassing himself OR when OOR crash and burn in the US and he comes crawling back to the bridges he’s currently in the midst of semi-burning.

Oh whew. With the 10000+ likes and comments like "it looks fun!" etc. I thought I was the only one who was starting to worry about Taka. Leader seems to be joining him in the US soon, so... hopefully one of them knocks some sense back into Taka. Although since I don't know him personally, I can't say if this is how he normally is, or if it's the bloated ego some fans have been talking about...

I can’t say I’m worried because he’s a fully-functioning adult who makes his own decisions, no matter how stupid they might be. Live and learn, you know? And I def don’t know him at all, so I have no clue how much of his behaviour is affected and how much is genuine. But it’s just too much, either way. 

What do you guys mean by posts? You mean the Instagram posts?

I think so, yes. He’s only active on IG when it comes to personal posts.

There’s only so many drinking/partying/bad angle selfie/USA rah-rahing/kissy kissy/other completely pointless posts I can take without rolling my eyes and thinking he needs to grow the hell up. It’s like watching someone spiral so badly out of control that you almost feel kind of embarrassed for him. 

The whole ~hollywood life~ make me cringe too Idk I just think he’s finally having fun without thinking about anything else that can pressure him.
Those boys didn’t get real vacation for years, the last two albums + tour schedule around the world, it all got so intense the past two years. So I honestly think it’s the first time he’s enjoying himself like every young men of his ages

Well, that’s the thing, Yan (and Claire). I’m not judging HIM, but I am def judging his behaviour. I’d feel the same way of that behaviour of any public figure who celebrates that way. Not saying I never did stuff like that when I was younger because I def did, and I still qualify it as stupid behaviour. He’s totally free to celebrate any way he wants. I don’t think anyone is saying they don’t deserve a break, or to have fun, but it doesn’t mean the behaviour itself can’t be judged. And celebrating this way is far from rare when it comes to artists in the public eye. It’s been like this for decades. The difference is social media these days just makes us more aware of it. 

(As a side note, if a FEMALE artist in her 20s celebrated the way he does, with all the selfies and drunk pics, she’d wouldn’t hear the end of it in terms of being labeled, which I think is interesting.)

I ‘m a little lost. Like, I personally don’t enjoy OOR’s latest songs , i’m pissed just by reading his latest interviews because I don’t agree with his recent way of thinking and I know many of you also feel kind of disappointed by that.
But I’m not really sure to understand what are your feelings about his recent life style. You’re worried? Annoyed? Disappointed?
And why do you feel like that ? If you understand why a 25 man wants to have fun for a few weeks by doing stupid things, what’s really the matter? Do you think it is a result of the latest disappointments, if his latest words and songs were what we were wishing for, do you think you would still feel that way about his personal lifestyle? I know everyone has different opinions and I’m reading them and accept them but I would like to understand the real matter. Or in the end is it because he’s actually publishing all of this on instagram and you would rather wish to not see this?

Hmm, speaking for myself, I guess it’s just a combo of all of the above. On top of his less-than-tactful interviews, I just find how he’s choosing to express himself lately really grating and quite childish and YES understandable. Because he’s young and a guy, etc, etc. I still think he looks stupid and brown-nosey, though, which isn’t to say he’s necessarily wrong or an idiot for doing what he does, it just comes across as idiotic to me. He’s never hidden the fact that he’s a partier, so it’s prob just the recent DELUGE backing that up which is catching some people by surprise.

Well, I specifically said (in another post) that I wasn’t worried because he’s an adult and can do what he likes. In fact, all my posts here are in response to anons. I couldn’t really care less what he does in his spare time. But since I was asked, I shared my opinion. I’m looking forward to more music-related posts from him, though, and hope they start happening soon.

You know, you guys talk a lot about how Toru, Ryota, or Tomoya could bring Taka back into focus (honestly I don't see an issue with his instagram posts) but what if they were to be revealed as "childish" as Taka is now? How would you react to that?

Anonymous

elsiechapman:

I…don’t even care how childish any of them are. I don’t CARE how childish Taka’s IG posts come across. I just don’t care. If asked, I’ll share an opinion if I feel like coming up with one. I felt like coming up with one tonight, period. I just want them to make better music than Decision and Pieces of Shit and THAT IS ALL. I want this new album to be as good as ZR, or barring that, then at least as good as Jinsei. They could all be fucking INFANTS for all I care. As long as they make good music while being said fucking infants. 

Wow. That part where you bashed their recent music just showed that you are the worst kind of fan. The kind which really likes the band till they play the music he/she likes but when they change rather than accepting it and going on you bash their music. Also, theirs nothing childish about Taka's posts. He posts pictures which are fun. He's probably not like that all day but he can't post every moment of his life. He acts totally normal for his age.

elsiechapman:

No, I’m not the worst kind of fan. I’m an intelligent fan. As in, I support a band by buying their music and going to their lives as long as I like their music. I’m not a blind fan who will spend money on music I don’t like, no matter who the band is. I’m not 12 fucking years old. There are way too many bands in the world making good music on which I can spend money. It’s my right to be a fan or non fan in any way I like. This goes from posting comments on YT to tweeting them to commenting on their IG accounts. Sure, a lot of that would be dumb, overindulgent behaviour, but it’s still within my rights as a fan (or non fan) to do so. I have spent thousands on this band if I take into account merchandise, airfare, hotel money, etc. So do not insult my intelligence by saying I have to accept their music and continue to buy it when I think it’s shitty or  otherwise I’m a bad fan. Are you fucking kidding me? 

OOR is a band making music for the public, and as a member of that public, I can express my opinion of their music in any fucking way I want. Don’t be ridiculous. Don’t be fandumb. Any artist who wants to be big is going to have to deal with people who don’t like their work. No one artist is universally loved. I can love one album, hate the next, whatever. If you think this means I’m a bad fan, grow up. You would be absolutely wrong AND misguided AND you need to educate yourself on how show business works. Not liking a band’s change of direction is well within a fan’s right, and it is not bashing in the least. It means I have a certain taste and I will support that taste in whatever way I like. 

Again, it’s up to Taka to post whatever the hell he wants. In my personal opinion, they are childish posts. It’s IG so who really gives a fuck. In your opinion, they are not. Accept that not everyone is going to have the same opinion, and that it doesn’t mean they are wrong just because they don’t agree. No one said he can’t act that way. But we sure as hell can have an opinion on that behaviour. I really hope that isn’t too hard or mature for you to understand. 

I’m turning off my anon until the idiots go home, btw.
