“That’s the quirky thing about so-called fame, about being a celebrity in other people’s eyes. Everyone has an opinion and generally it’s black and white. There’s little room for adjustment or consideration of an opposing viewpoint. Celebrity status means some aspects of your character are exaggerated while others are downplayed. The ramifications of some things you do are magnified tenfold, while other things are ignored. A young sportsman caught out having a drink or two more than he should is immediately tarnished with a drinking problem. A successful sportsman playing through a significant injury is often described as a “courageous hero” until he loses and becomes an abject failure.” Steve Waugh, former Australian Cricket Captain, in his book “The Meaning of Luck - Stories of Learning, Leadership and Love”.

“I think it’s so important that women really focus on encouraging and empowering other women. That’s definitely something that people struggle with in [the entertainment] business and in this industry, and that the media especially likes to bring attention to in a negative way. It’s so important that we empower one another because it’s hard enough being a woman! We could use all the support that we can get from each other.” Lea Michele (via girlmworld)

We understand why Lea Michele released the version of Cannonball that she did. The song is an anthem, one that helped her deal with the loss of her boyfriend Cory Monteith. It’s all about picking yourself up and finding the strength to keep going and at the time it worked better as a power ballad with an intense bass and drum line backing Michele’s powerful vocals. However, the acoustic studio version of the song that she released on her YouTube channel today shows what could have been and we kind of wish it was what had been to begin with.

“Cannonball” was a great song, but it didn’t really sink in how great it was. It has a lot of raw emotion in it that Michele only brings to the acoustic. In the original song, it’s more about the beat and the music than the actual message. “Cannonball” is surprisingly versatile. It works on the level of being a musical motto to start your day with and it works on the level of being an emotional plea to yourself to find the courage and strength no matter how rough things might get.

The entire acoustic video is done in black and white and features Michele simply singing the song with others, smiling and laughing at points, and the whole effect is just so powerful.It says, “I’m a survivor. I’ve done what I do best: survive.” It says that she’s found, if not happiness, then at least a center of peace. It says so much more than her original music video, which mostly featured a heavily glammed up Michele alternating between angst and sexiness.

If you didn’t connect with the song when it originally premiered, this is the version of it to listen to. This is the version that really makes you feel just a small piece of the heartbreak that Michele was going through when she recorded it. This is the version to hope is included as a bonus track on the album.
