“It’s been wonderful. It’s been very, very easy for us. I think that with the label, they knew what they were getting into when they signed us. Me, being on a major label in the past, I had my apprehensions about things. I also wasn’t as naïve as I used to be. We both approached it like we knew what we were getting into with each other. They’ve been so good to us in every possible way.” -Nate Ruess

This is pretty awesome. I don’t agree with all of his stylistic decisions, but then I’m also ridiculously picky about “We Are Young” covers. My favorite part is when his shirt color changes in time with the song. Bottom line: This kid is TALENTED.

openminds-openeyes said:I don't have a question, just a very humble thank you. I just saw your post explaining Obama's recent executive order prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in the workplace, and immediately teared up. Hi, I'm Janessa. I'm 17, and I'm lesbian. Sometimes the way our society orients around the topic of homosexuality is a bit frightening. It feels like something a high schooler shouldn't have to deal with. But this order gives me strength. So thank you, for this huge leap.
Thank you for having the courage to share your story! The President and everyone in his Administration is fighting for you every day. Stay strong!
