BLACKPINK’s Jennie expressed her gratitude for the group’s fans, the BLINKS, after the group claimed another win on the October 11 episode of SBS’s Inkigayo.
Jennie posted several pictures on Instagram on the same day, along with a message for her fans that read, “BLINKS, thank you for the love and support. ‘The Album’ means so much to us, and we couldn’t be happier about everything! We love you!”
The pictures show Jennie staring intensely into the camera while wearing one of her on-stage outfits and a high ponytail. The idol star’s captivating beauty is on full display in the attention-grabbing images.
Jennie had the internet talking on the 10th with an Instagram post that seemed to be an indirect response to the recent nurse uniform controversy. In the post, Jennie is wearing jeans with the word “CENSORED” written across the front of the pants. Under the photos is a description that reads, “Yeah we some (speak-no-evil monkey emoji) you can’t manage.” The description is a line from the BLACKPINK song “Pretty Savage” off their first full-length album, The Album, which says, “Yeah, we some bitches you can’t manage.”
Jennie was recently the central figure of a controversy due to a short, tight-fitting nurse’s outfit she had worn in the music video for BLACKPINK’s newest single, “Lovesick Girls.” The public and a number of nurses had expressed their displeasure at the outfit, saying that it sexually objectified nurses.
YG Entertainment issued an apology over the matter and said they there was no “specific intention” behind the use of the outfit. They also asked that the public look at “music videos as a type of independent artistic genre,” and eventually ended up deleting the offending scene.
