Esther Jones, known by her stage name, “Baby Esther,” was a singer and entertainer of the late 1920s. She performed regularly at The Cotton Club in Harlem. Helen Kane saw her act in 1928 and appropriated Jones’ ‘baby’ singing style for a recording of “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” Jones’ style went on to become the inspiration for the voice of Betty Boop.(What I Looked up)
Today in Black people invented everything you hold near and dear…
There are a few old Betty Boop cartoons on YouTube where she’s actually animated as Black. I’m both incredibly proud & disgusted to finally have names of all of the Black women who shaped so much of American culture after all of these years of being ignored.
rest in peace, go eunbi.
condolences to family,friends,and others who were injured/killed.
other fans,kpop or not,are here for you,ladies codes fandom.
stay strong. #prayforladiescode
Honestly, there isn’t a lot I can say on Eun B personality-wise because I’m not a fan. However I know she was an artist, a talented person, an idol, a living human being, who probably had goals and ambitions and wishes. She was young and still had a whole career a whole life ahead of her. She had family,friends, acquaintances, and friends and fans who are hurting right now.
Listen, I don’t care what fandom you’re in or from but this is a very, very hard time for all of them, especially the ones who lived/are trying to live through the accident.
Many people have just lost someone important to them. Many people are grieving. Do not let your ignorance and selfishness get the best of you.
Either pay your respects or simply be respectful. Don’t use this tragedy to make whatever point you wanna make about kpop and kpop fans. Don’t use this tragedy to further your own agenda.
Most of all, don’t make this tragedy about you.
Your idol/idols are still alive. You will probably see them at X airport tomorrow.
I know it scares you that death (as it does all) that things like this can happen to them and some might of actually had some close calls but at the end of this day. They are still alive. This girl isn’t. Not to mention, others are still in critical condition.
So think before you speak and if you can’t then just don’t.
Be supportive or be silent.
Once again, rest in peace, Eunbi. You will be missed greatly.
my ex texted me today “you can delete my number i don’t care anymore”
