Anonymous said: hi iranian azeri here to tell you that googoosh is azeri and people always overlook that and call her persian instead. she has also recorded and performed songs in azeri, so no, she is not just known for persian music. thanks.

((Absolutely! I was actually aware of this, but I did fall into the trap of calling it “persian” pop when she was known performing in multiple languages [she sung in english too! she did cute covers of Aretha Franklin and Carole King, for example]. A friend of mine once pointed out how quickly people tend to “persianize” Iranian pop stars of the pre-1979 time for nationalistic purposes, so whoops! my bad for not clarifying Googoosh’s Azeri heritage))

Anonymous said: Omg is that Googoosh!? :D

Are you referring to my header? Baleh, jaan! Of course it is Googoosh, the shahbanou of Persian pop :) I still listen to her to this day and cherish her music. 

((haha, yeah, the header of the ask Iran blog is a picture of the famous Persian Pop diva Googoosh. I mentioned Googoosh once before here in this post))

((yeah, I was asked a long time ago haha….”Ay Dokhtare” means “Oh, girl” and it was a pretty much a spur of the moment title bc of a song by Armin Nosrati lmfao…..I’ll probably change the title to something More Persian and Cool soon))
