Racist Reactions to Girls’ Generation’s Video of The Year Award

Fans of the beloved Kpop group Girls’ Generation were thrilled when their music video  “I Got A Boy” won YouTube’s Video of The Year Award at the first YouTube Music Awards on Sunday night.

Tiffany was there on behalf of the girls to accept the award and thank SM Entertainment, her fellow members, and fans of Girls’ Generation.

This was clearly a huge step for Asian entertainers to win such a mainstream award. The girls were up against icons such as Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, One Direction and Selena Gomez.

Unfortunately, this very joyous moment was quickly tainted by viewers who opposed the award recipient choice. Many of these individuals simply did not know who Girls’ Generation was. For some reason, they felt that because they were unfamiliar with the girl group, they were justified in attacking GG’s race, music and members.

These comments quickly turned into racist ones and left us sighing with disappointment.

Thankfully, a number of fans argued against these racist comments. Our most favorite fan in defense of Girls’ Generation? YouTube.

Girls’ Generation Wins Video of the Year at YouTube Music Awards

Story By Taylor Weik.

K-Pop fans went wild as Tiffany from Girls’ Generation went up to receive the Video of the Year award at the first YouTube Music Awards on Sunday night.

Held at Pier 36 in New York City, the awards show was hosted by actor Jason Schwartzman and and comic-musician Reggie Watts and credits acclaimed filmmaker Spike Jonze as its creative director. The show was live-streamed to 215,000 YouTube users and viewers themselves voted on the winners for categories such as video and artist of the year and YouTube phenemonon.

Girls’ Generation beat out American pop icons such as Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, One Direction and Selena Gomez to win the first ever Video of the Year award for their music video “I Got a Boy.” While the eight other members of the Korean female group were working back in Korea, Tiffany was there to represent Girls’ Generation and accept the award.

“To be here in the first ever YouTube Music Awards is a treat in itself,” Tiffany said, “But to win Video of the Year… this is absolutely unexpected, and exciting and altogether humbling at the same time.”

Check out the videos of their award acceptance and winning video below:

Girls’ Generation’s Tiffany Interviews (And Gets A Kiss From) Tom Hiddleston

Story by Taylor Weik.

As if you couldn’t be any more jealous of Tiffany, one of the members of the global K-Pop sensation that is Girls’ Generation, another bullet point makes the list: on October 18, “Mnet Wide” released a 13-minute video of Tiffany’s interview with the British swoon-worthy actor, Tom Hiddleston.

While Hiddleston was in South Korea promoting his new movie, Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World in which he plays Thor’s deeply complex brother, Loki, Tiffany took the opportunity to interview the star about his role in the film while also showing him around the cultural spots of Seoul.

The pair wandered around on a rainy day in Seoul arm-in-arm with umbrellas while Tiffany introduced him to locations like the N Seoul Tower (“Do you find this really romantic?” Hiddleston says) and the observation deck where thousands of love locks hang off the side.

“[I’ll remember Korea] with enormous passion and affection,” Hiddleston says at the end of their interview, before promising to return to Korea “real soon.”

A Cut Above | Asian Hair: The Pixie Cut

With the media in a metaphorical tailspin over Beyoncé’s new shorter ‘do, the spotlight is placed once again on the pixie cut.  Popularized in the 1950’s by Hollywood stars like Audrey Hepburn, Mia Farrow and supermodel Twiggy, the cut has been worn by many throughout the years, including some of our favorite Asian and Asian American celebrities (like Ziyi Zhang at Cannes and Audrey’s summer covergirl, Rinko Kikuchi), breaking the stereotypical idea that Asian women have to have long, straight hair.

And while we love the Queen B just as much as anyone else and think that her new cut looks fabulous, we have to admit, these celebs give her a run for her money.

Gorgeous, no?  As you can probably tell, when it comes to the pixie, there’s no one-size-fits-all cut.  If you’re thinking of cropping your own hair, take a cue from one of these lovely women and experiment — you really have nothing to lose (no pun intended)!
