My sister sent me this and at first I thought “No fucking way did Miley Cyrus try to cover Parton’s Jolene”.
30 seconds in and it quickly changed to “holy fucking shit”
Miley Cyrus - Jolene

She has a good voice for this style of music. I really liked this.
I love how everyone in the band is just groovin’.
i reblog this every single time. such a good cover of one of my favorite songs.
im SO SURPRISED by this wowwwwwwww
On the 11th December 1969- 44 years ago today- a beautiful 3 year old girl was stolen from her mother by a group of men who didn’t speak the same language as her. She was kept in a Warehouse for some months before eventually being removed and instead, held captive with an older boy.
At just age 11, she fell pregnant with her first child and gave birth to a baby boy. He died of brain damage and pneumonia 18 days later. After screaming for 3 days solidly, she realised she was never going to see her son again.
Over the next 18 years, she became pregnant a further 6 times and all of her children died either by miscarriage, still birth or lack of resources due to her captors not understanding what to do. Her longest surviving child lived for just one month.
Eventually, she was moved to a bigger facility but was still held captive. People fought and fought for her freedom but the day never came. When she turned 27, she was played a recording of her family and even then, she still remembered them. She shook and she cried in distress at their familiar voices.
And now, at 47 years old, this little girl is a grown woman and has still not been granted her freedom. What she doesn’t realise is that her mother is dead but she still has a living sister, brother, niece and grand niece. The chances are, she will never have the opportunity to meet them.
This woman’s name is Corky II and she is an orca whale. I hope that by reading that, you do not find this story any less heart wrenching. It is because of whales like Corky II that I do not believe in or support captivity. We simply have to break the chain and start phasing it out.
So, here’s to Corky II. For being one of the strongest and most resilient women I’ve ever known. Corky, you’re in my thoughts.
Above: Corky and her first born son, Spooky.
this broke my heart
A rich teenager in Texas who killed four people while driving under the influence of drugs and drink got a slap on the wrist after his lawyers argued he was the victim of “affluenza.”
Ethan Couch received 10 years probation — rather than the possible 20-year jail term he faced as a result of his irresponsible actions.
His lawyers said the 16-year-old had been so spoiled by his doting and affluent parents he had no idea of the consequence of his actions or the concept of taking responsibility for what he did. (AP Photo/The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Paul Moseley)
This is BULLSHIT
I’m bout go beat up on some whites cause of this goddamn unaffluenza I got
