KimonoTime, A.K.A. Kelsey Ellison’s experience with X-Factor UK
TLDR: I got scouted and had a private audition because of my videos and made me feel they were really interested in kpop. The celebrity judges in the room audition wanted more Korean and then at Wembley the monitors weren’t on so I couldn’t hear my voice and was told I was terrible and they didn’t understand why I sung in Korean and I was in the wrong country, humiliating me in front of 5,000 people. In both auditions I didn’t get chance to prepare, because in the room audition they forgot about me and in the Wembley Audition they abandoned me and then put me on first.
Even though this isn’t related to shopping or my blog in particular, I felt the need to share this because it does relate to how Asian fashion, music, and the culture in general is perceived and manipulated by the media. It’s unfortunate that Kelsey was sought out for the sole purpose of making her, and kpop enthusiasts, look like fools. For another example of how this often happens, watch TLC’s My Strage Addiction “Living Doll” episode which features Venus Angelic and a girl named Emily, who are both into lolita or jfashion. While Venus’s segment may be true to her character, Emily’s segment was very scripted and edited and made to look weird and both Venus’s and Emily’s segments were manipulated to give a misrepresentation of the lolita subculture or jfashion in general.
With that small slightly-irrelevant rant aside, I wish for others to spread this around, because it isn’t fair to Kelsey that she was badly mistreated and it was very unprofessional and misleading on X-factor’s end, especially if this could have potentially hurt Kelsey’s career or give her a bad image.
Thank you so so much for sharing this and to everyone who has been supporting me! <3
A friend just showed me this let me make a few points real fast ok
- You were humiliated because you put yourself in that position. The judges were right to question why you were attempting Korean because it was obviously unnatural to you and you were using it for the sake of being different or “exotic”. You were using the language as a costume and that’s why it’s bad and you deserved what you got.
- This has nothing to do with how Korean media or culture is portrayed and everything to do with white people appropriating our language to seem different and just end up making a mockery of it, and of themselves.
- In response to the person who commented above, there is no such thing as Asian culture.
- There is
- no such
- thing as
- "Asian culture"
- "Rini"? Either this is from Sailor Moon or you just found the name somewhere, either way.. Give me a fucking break.
As a Japanese-American, I totally support the public shaming of weeaboos and koreaboos. That shit isn’t cool. Hopefully others will learn from their cringeworthy example and change their ways.

I saw a dead cat, squirrel and Fox on my way to the gym this morning
Okay, so in Science class yesterday we were talking about sleep cycles and melatonin and my science teacher said, “if you’re trying to sleep, avoid one colour. Blue. Your melatonin levels decrease when looking at the colour blue because it’s the colour of the sky.” GUYS, I KNOW WHY NONE OF US SLEEP. TUMBLR IS BLUE.
THE JIG IS UP, YOU SNEAKY BASTARDS. WE’RE ONTO YOU.
Didn’t she steal this from a Black Tumble post……
Does it matter where she got it from, though? She’s supporting Black feminists…
I’m 100% sure she has the ability to cite her sources instead of plagiarizing a Black Woman’s work. We do not need “support” that erases our words.
Those are not her words.
She 100% stole this from a Black Tumblr user. I can’t remember who said it, but I’m 100% certain I’ve reblogged it and it’s buried in my archives somewhere. Probably around the time she dropped her album.
Donald, why are you making me hate you all of the sudden?
OK, so let me get this straight:
- Donald Glover doesn’t like black women.
- Donald Glover has a fetish for Asian women.
- But Donald Glover doesn’t like Filipino women because they are the “black girls of Asians”.
We should point out the weird intersectionality problem involving more complex issues like internalized antiblackness, fetishization, and toxic black male attitudes towards black women that’s going on here.
but how you shit on both black women and filipina women in one anti-black misogynist fetishizing swoop? He literally attacked asian women who didnt fit into his exotic fetish of what they should be, by shitting on black women.
….. I thought I liked him a while ago and then I realized he’s a piece of shit.
It’s like misogynoiristic, orientalist-fetish bingo. Ew…
He actually said that he likes “the black girls of every culture.” Which is still filled with misogynoir. He said Filipinas were the “black” Asian girls and he referred to Armenians as the “black” white girls.
Basically he doesn’t like black girls. He fetishizes Asian girls. He deals with internalized racism (the whole cumming when she called him a “nigger”). And then he likes the “blackness” when its not on black girls. Which we’re not new to. Our features/aesthetics without our bodies/skin color.
He’s problematic as fuck. That’s why we’re not watching Spiderman.
god damn it.
I mean this is so fucked up when you think about the whole lightskin/darkskin shit too
This needs more notes.
GOD FUCKING DAMMIT
I tried to scroll past it. I honestly tried
i hate everything
Can anybody explain this shit to me?
That is a blank piece of sheet music. Musical notes are used to write music. Those notes are absent from the sheet music, and so for it to be music it needs…..notes.
