If Your BF Breaks Up With You Because Another Girl Is Bored, She Ain't The Problem

If you think your man would do that, break up with your boyfriend, he's a dick.

So, Ariana Grande dropped a bop-filled album last week and, uh, people are pissed.

The song is filled with banger after banger, concluding with the apparently rage-inducing song "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored."

Ariana Grande - break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored YouTube

The song doesn't really go much deeper than that. There have been interpretations that the song is really about Ariana breaking out of relationships so she can date herself, or her pushing the dude to dump his girlfriend so she can date the girl.

But, of course, at its surface level, the song is about convincing a guy to break up with his girlfriend because you're bored and you want to sleep with him. People are really not happy about it:

"More like 'break up with your girlfriend because I'm a whore.' If that's the kind of attitude you have, stay away from me and my boyfriend because you're just a homewrecker. Sorry, not sorry." — Megan Crabb
"I thought Ariana Grande was a real one, but her song 'Breakup With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored' is NOT the move and if you feel this energy then stay the fuck away from me." — @brandalintipton
"yaa break up with ur girlfriend, I'm bored by Ariana is good and all but if I catch any of you bitches with that energy around my man, you're getting your shit rocked xo" — bitchqueeenXo
"If you convince my boyfriend to break up with me because you're bored, I may just snap your neck... because I'm bored." — Sara Ursum

Here's the thing: If your boyfriend dumps you because some other girl is bored, he's probably not really worth keeping around? Let's just think about that for a few seconds, OK? If your boyfriend would genuinely END YOUR RELATIONSHIP (not cheat on you — per Ariana's direction, she doesn't want unfaithfulness) to sleep with some girl because she's bored, is she REALLY the problem? She's not a homewrecker if he's single, and your beloved dumped you to "hit it" so honestly, I think she may have done you a favor.

If your boyfriend cheats on your and the ~other woman~ knows that you exist, sure, they're both grade-A assholes. But if your boyfriend leaves you for another woman who politely requested for him to end things BEFORE they get together, then I hate to say it but your boyfriend is the lone grade-A asshole.

The bottom line is, if you feel threatened by this song and think girls feeling this "energy" will be detrimental to your relationship, then your relationship is probably pretty bad. Unless your boyfriend is a tool, another woman's sexual boredom isn't going to be a reason for him to leave you. And if another woman's sexual boredom IS a reason for him to leave you, then he's a tool and you dodged a bullet.

So basically, if this song makes you worried your boyfriend is going to leave you, then break up with your boyfriend, he sucks.

Everything You Need To Know About The Fyre Festival Musical Disaster

A look at what happened in the Hulu and Netflix documentaries.

I first heard about Fyre right after it happened because a vlogger, Mark Dohner, posted it on his YouTube channel. He stated that he had considered going, but in the end, didn't. Now I haven't heard about this festival since then, so I was surprised to hear that Netflix and Hulu were both doing documentaries on this, more than a year after it happened

About two weeks ago, Netflix and Hulu almost simultaneously released different documentaries about the 2017 disaster that was Fyre Festival. For anyone who doesn't know, Fyre was supposed to be a grand music festival in Great Exuma, an island in the Bahamas, and was supposed to be the next Coachella. Tickets ran as much as a few hundred to a couple hundred thousand dollars and included food, a villa or luxury tent, and access to bands such as blink 182, G.O.O.D. Music, Major Lazer, and many more.

It took about six months to put the Fyre festival together. From the documentaries, it seemed like, in the beginning, all of their advertising was on Instagram. Pages would post the same orange photo and would either have the tag for the Frye page or it would be the promo video. The video featured various models, from Bella Hadid to Hailey Baldwin/Bieber, having a good time in the Bahamas. For people scrolling through their Instagram pages, seeing all of these orange posts and videos of what the festival was supposed to look and be like, of course, they sold out. Not only did they sell out, but they also sold more tickets than they had room.

During this time, they didn't have an island to hold the festival, because they were told to not have the festival on the original island from the promo video, didn't have enough villas to hold people, and had to build everything from scratch. In the Hulu documentary, it was touched on that this should have taken a year to a year and a half to do, but the festival was less than six months away. When it came time for the festival, it was a disaster. The luxury tents were old hurricane relief tents, there were no music acts, there wasn't much of anything. In the end, almost no one was paid for their work, and even the employees working at the festival weren't correctly paid.

Giphy

While both of the documentaries are on the same topic, they're both slightly different. Hulu gave more of an overview and an interview Billy McFarland, the main man in charge, whereas Netflix seemed more in depth leading up to and the aftermath of the festival, as well as interviews with more people who took part of putting the festival together, including the residents of Great Exumas who helped. I thought it was interesting to hear about the festival from Billy's perspective, although it seemed like he was mostly defending himself. Both documentaries touched on how Billy continuously lied to his staff and investors about money. I liked the Netflix one slightly more, but they were both well done.
