Rap Monster Officially Changes His Stage Name

Rap Mon has officially changed his stage name and wrote ARMY a little letter~


Here's it is:

Hello, 
Out of all the writings, this letter is the most uneasy for me to start. 

I've been promoting with the name Rap Monster for the past 5 years since 2012. It's a stage name our agency family and members called me by naturally due to a line I wrote when I was a trainee. I also think I've become very fond of it. 
However, the name 'BTS' Rap Monster' was kind of long to use during promotions, and I felt that it's getting more and more distant from the music I've done for the past 5 years and the music I want to show from now on. 

I also casually tend to introduce myself as Rap Mon or RM instead of the full name of Rap Monster. Therefore, I plan to change my stage name to 'RM', which has a broader spectrum and also more appropriate for the music I want to pursue. 

I believe fans might've already known because I've released some music and mixtapes as RM. 
I've thought hard about this for a long time as I want to do music with an open heart and perspective without getting tied down to anything. 

It might be awkward and unfamiliar since I'm changing the stage name I've used since debut but I will greatly appreciate if you can welcome me starting fresh with the new name. 

Thank you!"

We love you no matter what you're called Joonie!

Hello loves! As we all know our boys attended the AMAs, and according to "sources" a Hollywood actress went up to one of the members and asked for his personal number Turns out they actually gave the actress their manager's number instead xD (this may or may not be true however it was never confirmed) . . . But if it was... 5 bucks says it was Jungkook xD We're on to you Kookie ~ ~~♡~~♡~~♡~~♡~~♡~~♡~~♡~~ ☆PolarStarr Taglist☆ @HopeYoongi @hayoungforever @EverieMisfit @kimchikpop @ParkKyungSoon @AmberRelynn @otakukpoper @mrsyookihyun  @leilakyrsten @NaBi7  @milcalopez963 @shelbyhusband @tinytreeleaf @IsoldaPazo @Destiny98 @twistedPuppy @YessicaCardenas @warning  @lashonda0917 @LemonLassie @VatcheeAfandi99 @senia  @AlittleJoy @MaelstromVIP  @sherrysahar @AbbyRoscoe @AraceliJimenez  @sherrysahar @dreemer13  @MichelleRosa @BTSxEXO  @LinnyOk @EvodiaEbraheem @hopesforsuga711  @iraVVIP @taetaebaebae @KokoroNoTakara @SugaMint @cns1391 @luna1171 @AmbieB @Anime4life20 @AlexisJ15 @Alpha95  BANGTAN'S ARMY TAGLIST: A: @AbbyRoscoe @AddictedtoKPOP @Addixtion @adritae @AgentLeo @AhensaAdel @AkiraMarie13 @AlenaSegura @AliceTetsuya @aliendestina @Alpha95 @AraceliJimenez @ashrose33 @AsystolinaTawan @awkwardjazzy @AmbieB @Airamatheah @ARMYaki16 @AngelaDarkness @animani B: @B2STJYDHDK @babysanchez1253 @Badtz @Baekyeol27 @170cme @bantanella @BeeTeeS @BreHolmes @BTSxEXO C: @cathysanchez157 @ChandraTorres @Changkyunie @cherriblossom17 @Choijiah @cns1391 @ColorMeKihyun D: @DaintySoul @DefSoul1994 @destiny1419 @DejaunaeSiders E: @Eli20 @emilyrivera21 @Eswee @EvilGenius @EvodiaEbraheem G: @glorias463 @Gracielou0717 H: @hayoungforever @Helixx @hopesforsuga711 @HopeYoongi @Hskswife @hyqtpie I: @ImHayley @imiebegay14 @InfiniteKiss @inuyashagal @iraVVIP @IrishCabacungan J: @jadmarie4567 @Jaerinn @JasminMartinez @JaxonB @JenGambale @jenissa711 @JerannethaBroug @jiminakpop @JJiBin @jjrockstar @JohnEvans @Josyy7AshleiRyals K: @KarenGuerra93 @karinamiranda81 @kee1999kee @KenyaMendoza @kimnam94 @KokoroNoTakara @Kpoplover2016 @kristendmh @Kyokeo @KeraDelatorre L: @LacyTanner @LemonLassie @LinnyOk @LiyahBoon @lopleaf19 @loverofkpop @luna1171 @luvella18 @LynetteXuan  @laurenkim3 @LostMage M: @maddsanzen @MakaylaAtkins @MamaNini @MayraCastro @MelissaGarza @merryjayne13 @MistressSiren @MsLoyalHeart @MidajahRodrigue N: @nykechun P: @parktaemi @pharmgirlerin @Pickles440 Q: @QueenPandaBunny R: @resavalencia @RKA916 S: @sarahdarwish @SarahMoniva @Seera916 @selfishmachines @ShannonSaysHey @shellyfuentes70 @shisuschrist @simpsonsamantha @SindyHernandez @StefaniTre @StephanieDuong @StephaniePoore @strawberrylover @strawberrymintl @SugaKookieV @sukkyongwanser @SunnaWalo @SweetDuella @sweetnothing34 @Swhitta @sinnernIknowit T: @Tamaki1618 @TashiannaBostia @tayamay1232 @TerraToyaSi @ThanaPlague @thatphamily @thekpoprealm @TheRealAgustD @tinytreeleaf @2TracyLynnn @TwistedPDnim @taehyungie35 V: @Vay754 @VickyLe @Viresse @VKookie47 W: @warning X: @xLonelyUnitatox @xDisappearx Y: @yehetmyohorat97 @YeojinOfficial @YessicaCardenas @YiselRamos @Yugykookie97 Z: @zilVer @ZeleniaMoon BANGTAN’S ARMY TEAM TAGLIST: @PolarStarr @Addixtion @warning @YulaGyeom @MelissaGarza

Jail Time for Big Hit Blackmailer + Calls for Reported to Resign!
So, first part of the controversy is this: A CEO was sentenced to one year in prison for "blackmailing Big Hit Entertainment, threatening to reveal information to the public about alleged illegal marketing by the agency." Basically, Big Hit used a company 2 years ago to do marketing for them, then suddenly the company (that was financially struggling) came back and said they were going to release this ~secret~ about Big Hit unless they paid them a lot of money (approximately $291,000) Big Hit was like, wtf, and they said they have nothing to hide (the 'secret' was related to illegal marketing allegedly) They said: “Big Hit has nothing to hide, so as soon as we became aware of the situation, we filed a report with the police and actively cooperated with investigations.” “If Big Hit’s reputation ends up being damaged by these claims and reports, despite the our immediate handling of the situation by filing a report and cooperating with police, then there will be no entertainment agency in the future that can take appropriate measures in the face of blackmail.” “We’re very sorry to the BTS members and ARMY for the alarm that was caused with this issue. We will do everything we can and carefully manage our business partners and contractors to prevent something like this from ever happening again.” The CEO was found guilty for blackmail and was sentenced to a year in jail. Now, for the second part of the controvery: There is one reporter, Jeon Won, who works for a site called xsports who hates BTS with a passion. She heard the report about the marketing company finding "illegal marketing practices" and posted about how that is PROOF that BTS bought their Billboard award and that they should return it, that BTS are cheaters. *eye roll* Here's what she wrote: “With the accusations of illegal marketing practices, BTS’ eligibility for the ‘Top Social Artist’ award comes to suspicion. The winner of the award is determined by the hashtag votes and BTS has received more than 300 million. However, some netizens are now questioning the legitimacy. If the marketing took place with the use of part-time employees (to increase votes), then it’ll be fair for BTS to return the trophy.” You can hear her voice here from a press conference. She's the same reporter who clamined that BTS cheated on winning awards on music shows and she also announced one of their comeback dates before Big Hit did (which is a shitty move as a reporter). Now #엑스포츠_전원기자_사과해 (XSports_ReporterJeongWon_Apologize!) is trending WORLDWIDE. Since the "illegal marketing practices" were found to be lies, that means her only evidence that the Billboard Awards were bought is not true people want her to apologize but so far all that has happened is her article has ~disappeared~ Glad BTS won this round but jeez, when will people learn?!
Self Care with BTS
Hello fam! I constantly making sure in order for me to reduce stress and manage mental health I must take self care important. I have some tips to help those who want to reduce stress by self care. BTS will help me out. *Disclaimer I'm not a doctor. Consult with PCP if you have health issues. I'm sharing my skin care routine.* Tip 1: Meditation and or relaxing This will help you wind down and reduce those racing thoughts. You can add in deep breathing if you like. I rest while listening to calming music or rain music. Tip 2: Pamper yourself or skincare At the end of the day I take time to enjoy my skincare routine. The scents and applying the products can be relaxing. Tip 3: Make time with friends Being around positive friends and having fun can help reduce stress and remind you that you are loved. At least once a month my friends and I always do something e.g. lunch, dinner, spa day, etc. Tip 4: Eating healthy and drinking lots of water Sometimes it is true you can be mean when hungry lol. I know I am. I feel bad physically when I eat lots of greasy foods and drink sugary drinks. Make sure to eat those in moderation and stay hydrated. This can improve health. Tip 5: Exercise be active Moving around helps you feel alive and good about yourself. WHAT DO U DO FOR SELF CARE? COMMENT BELOW!!!
