The beauty that I'm faking let's me live my life like this
A post dedicated to the great Gerard Way was inevitable. You all knew it was coming. I can honestly say that he is my muse. He inspires me so much. I love the fact that he actually graduated college. He's been working in the real world. He then pursued his music dream when the time was right and it all came together. He's very smart. He's articulate. He's passionate. He's not afraid to be vulnerable. I relate to him a lot and respect him. You can also see his various musical/artistic influences. I love the fact that he's theatrical. I love everything that is cinematic and he makes his music so grand. I love all three albums. They are so different from each other. The fact that the first track on their first album is the classical piece ROMANCE was enough to prove that they were not just another band. Their song "Demolition Lovers" fills my head with movie ideas. His vocals in "Vampires Will Never Hurt You" are amazing. The second album was equally mind-blowing. I particularly liked "It's not a fashion statement, it's a fucking death wish", "Thank you for the Venom", and the last track. The story line with the two characters was very clever. The third album is unbelievable. Literally, the song "Mama" reminds me so much of "Master of the House" from Les Miserables. The video for "Black Parade" is so dark and beautiful. All of the lyrics are beyond awesome. Gerard really gets into character that sometimes I wish he would also try out acting. He has so much emotion and understanding that I think he could probably become one of the best actors of all time. When I read his interviews or hear him talk, it just makes me feel so inspired. Like I can take over the world or something. I can go on and on but I will stop for now.
I love musicals, cinematics, and theatricals so much and I guess that is why I find Gerard Way to be my absolute muse.
