I like the Vampire Diaries. There, I said it. If you’re not a fan, you can tut and feel superior, and you have my blessing to do so. I know full well how it can be judged. It has all the tropes belonging to angsty-supernatural fantasy stuff; the teenagers are played by adults, and therefore have perfect skin and hair, and everybody is so thin that they disappear if they turn sideways. Also, it’s pretty easy to keep up with who’s a supernatural character, since everybody who is not human is clearly identifiable as not human by their moody v-necked outfits, all of which stick to a strict black-to-grey colour scheme. Also, everybody seemingly has endless money without actually working, and the schools are these weird places where the bell is always ringing and the classes last about 2 seconds. BUT, it’s also fantastic and magic-y and awesome and I like it.
Anyways, if you are, like me, suffering from a Vampire-Diaries-shaped gap in your life, you might like to fill it with the fact that Kat Graham (Bonnie) is also a singer:
And she has been for a while, but I only just found out because I’m
in denial about Vampy D being over and am looking for some more Bonnie since she was such an awesome character. As you can tell, Kat Graham’s a lot different from her character:
And I love how different her music sounds. It’s not the kind of stuff I usually listen to, but as I’ve said, I’m in such denial about the show being over that I’ve been listening to it on repeat and it’s now stuck in my head. I love the kind of old-school thing she’s got going on in the bottom vid, plus, as if she isn’t content with being an actress and singer, she’s also an awesome dancer. Anyways, it’s helping to do the job of a kind of Vampire-Diaries-patch until I find another awesome show!
