Last night LP has given third and final (for now) concert in Turkey. LP performed in Ankara at the ODTÜ Mezunları Derneği Vişnelik Tesisi (Alumni Association Cherry Plant?). It was another big venue for LP with huge crowd. But as always LP did an amazing job – it was another successful show and people had great fun.

There were some problems, but those were more technical and from organizators of the concert itself, as far as I’m aware. Also, I think it’s important for me to say, that I’m glad that LP set the record straight when it comes to false rumors re: harrasment. I think it’s really important for all of us to not to jump straight to conclusions before having a valid reason to speak out.

Rumors and online abuse spread fast and can do more harm than good. I’ve been dealing with online abuse myself, thankfully I’m getting better in distancing myself from bad and hurtful people. But do remember, that words hurt too. Think before you type, even if you think that you’re safe because you are anonymous and hiding behind an avatar.
Your words are referring to a real person, person that has been transparent and open with you online. So do take a moment and aknowledge that fact before you decide to vent your jealousy or frustrations. Even if it’s only on some group where, you think, that a certain person is no longer a member. Remember, she has friends who are thinking of her, and they will let her know…
In short. THINK. Also, I’m really sorry but I was forced to block some of the fan accounts but only on Instagram. Here’s explanation. When I was starting with my blog, there were only several fan accounts with few posts here and there. But now there are so many of those, that it’s been getting harder and harder for me to sort through the noise…
Since Instagram is my main source of photos and quotes for the blog, it would be great if fan accounts would post only few times per day and not tag LP in every single post. BUT – I cannot ask for such thing, those fan accounts support LP in their own way, and I do it in my own way. Also, I tried to block only fan accounts that don’t follow me or interact with me in any way.
And I did it only so I wouldn’t lose my mind when searching for photos and quotes for my blog. So, here’s why, that’s the only reason. Not jealousy or being sick in my head (as suggested by some “lovely” fans). I know it’s not a perfect solution, but for now Instagram only allows such option, there’s no mute button that works like the one on Twitter.
And I am really sorry if you’ve felt hurt because of that. But most of you have at least several accounts so you can check what’s going on on my blog from there. Also, it would really help if some of LP fan accounts would properly credit and tag sources of their photos/videos or articles… Just saying…
Here are few quotes that I were able to find from last night. @nouralsaqa: “I screamed ‘we love you’ and LP replied ‘I love you too’ and now my heart is full.” @breathforzen: “It’s called talent… such an amazing night! Ankara loves you LP!! This gave me goosebumps.” @iambusragul: “That was real and I was just shocked. I love your voice LP.”
@makbileeee: “LP, You were amazing in Ankara! And no broken tambourine tonight… Thanks for the eargasms, love you so much!” @serrasogutt: “LP thank you for the amazing night. One of the best concerts I’ve ever been to.” @Esrakellecii: “LP. Come again, everything was flawless.” @AgresifKoala: “HAPPINESS IS YOU LP!”
@ceydataylann: “LP’s Ankara concert was simply amazing, one of the best nights in this year. Waiting for hours was worth it, the moment she came on stage, the night light up at least for me.” @topslinson91: “Thank you LP! We had a lot of fun last night!” @fortunaak: “About yesterday. LP. Baby, You’re a dreamer. Amazing voice.”
@supportinglaura: “Yesterday was an amazing day. I’ve never had this much fun. Her voice fascinated us all and I’m so glad she got my presents. And finally i just want to say YOU ARE PERFECT & YOU SLEW (slayed).” @_tomriskaya_: “unforgettable and marvellous. these are two insufficient words for defining last night. Thank you LP for being here in pride month.”
That’s all for now. Sorry for lack of pictures but it’s been really hard to find anything at all. Anything that would be of better quality that some blurry dot. Now, few days off and LP will perform on the 21st June at Francofolies Festival 2019 in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria.
