Didn't YT recently update their terms though where you have to explicitly flag whether content is made for minors or not? I'm pretty sure it came in before Venus uploaded any of her OF style content so it makes me wonder whether she bothered or not because if not... that could get her in some hot water too.
I don't think the two are mutually exclusive tbh. Venus can still bait all of these things and lie and refuse any help because she doesn't want it and still have ended up in another shitty, abusive situation. It doesn't excuse her actions by any means, but I think it's fair that some people are speculating something else might be going on in the BG.
Yeah I definitely don't get the aversion to wanting to go home to resituate herself and then going back to Japan if that's what she still wants. It's not as if she can even argue that her content depends on her being in Japan because... at this point... it really doesn't... and it's not as if she can never go back when she's moved there before. Surely the idea of having a little bit of family support, even if it's just enough that you don't have to stress out about keeping a roof over your head, would be enough of a reason to consider it if your mental health is struggling??? I will be super interested to see how the visa situation plays out in the next few months for her, whether that'll be what forces her to go home or what. I just wish """"influencers"""" would learn to just own up to when things go wrong in their life like yeah, this didn't work out so I'm going to have to go back for a bit/rethink some things. Like it would make them infinitely more likable and "relatable" i'm sure to admit they struggle too.
I feel like I'm kind of hot and cold on Mikan and her attitude towards life at the moment. Not intended to WK so if it comes across that way MY BAD. I do want to say firstly that I don't think people need to have their lives worked out at 23, hell, even later than that?? Especially if she is going through mental health struggles. Personally I'm approaching 26 and between battling my brain also haven't got a solid plan for the next year let alone 5 lol. I think a lot of people at 22/23 just kind of go with the flow so I don't think it's unusual. Obviously it's a LITTLE more pressing for her since she is living abroad and has things like visas to consider so it's strange she doesn't seem more motivated to find a new drive??? Also I don't find it that surprising that she doesn't have a plan considering it seemed like Bunka was a kind of grasping at straws plan attempt to find a direction in life. It's definitely a waste that she only had a little bit longer to go and didn't finish at least even if she never pursued fashion again and I think it's COMPLETELY pointless to drop out to focus on social media apparently and then neglect it basically but I don't necessarily hold it against her that she quit if it really wasn't working for her. Ultimately, I don't think we'll ever REALLY know why she quit or dropped out unless she tells us herself like, honestly lol. Which I don't ever see happening, although that would also make a good video topic HINT HINT MIKAN LMAO The vibes I get at the moment almost make me feel like she's lowkey having an existential crisis?? Like, she's directionless with no friends in a foreign country with no real job and no goal, that's GOTTA be stressful as fuck and it seems like even her content is a bit all over the place like she SPAMS her bf and then goes to do old trends like the emo/scene look or the e-girl transformation? Feels a little like she's grasping to find a foothold because she doesn't have any clue what she wants to do. Which I think is the biggest waste for me? Like she's CLEARLY got the platform that gives her an amazing advantage to pursue something but she doesn't seem to know how to utilise it or thinks of it like it's just something she's entitled to? Also I guess if she's always been reasonably privileged in her life until now, having to actually work again to find her place is probably a new concept for her. Like, maybe that's why she seems to be using Yasu as such a crutch because she just..... has never had to properly adult before.
yeah but to be changing colours constantly, there's bound to be some kind of bleaching or colour stripping involved which will not be great for hair. and tbh?? even getting your hair coloured has the tendency to dry your hair out so it might not be falling off but if she keeps switching it up super fast i can see it showing signs of damage soon.
Correct me if I'm remembering wrong, but haven't members of her family tried to reach out to her before in the past? I have to wonder why she never followed through on that after she left Margo if that is the case, even if just out of curiosity to see what that part of her family is like.
I mean it's pretty hard these days not to know the kind of stuff he's done in the past so if she knows him well enough to want to bring him up then I'm pretty sure she probably knows too. I can't quote the other message re: the stories but it doesn't shock me to hear her taking an omg creators should be respected stance when she literally goes on the attack when people, rightfully, call her out for things like art theft. Girl wouldn't know accountability if it sat in her lap.
I'm in the process of watching this accountability video now and yikes? Just reads like he saw how well Jenna's went down and went "I need to get on this train" because of all the other backlash he's faced lately. Also, so far he keeps putting in the whole "omg it makes me feel like a piece of shit" "it makes me feel so upset" etc. etc. An apology is not meant to be about you? (meme voice): you are uncomfortable when not about you??? You can't take responsibility for all of the shit you have done in the past if you make it all about you and your feelings and not the feelings/offence caused to the people you have hurt. UPDATE: we've just got to a point where he's talking about how he's had a long of pain in his life/childhood and issues with his family like SHANE... SO HAVE I... SO HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE BUT WE DON'T MAKE RACIST OR MAKE "SHOCK VALUE" JOKES. And NOW it's all "oh I wasn't thinking when I posted [stuff like that]. I can't, I'm OUT, I can't watch it anymore.
why does she constantly pose with a foot pointing towards the camera/her legs angled closest to the camera?? like, if you're going for the people into feet sure i guess, but it always just makes her body look strangely out of proportion. and in that first new one it makes her look like she's all hunched over into a little ball. how is that meant to be ~~~sexy~~~ at all???
man she's really gonna regret making the whole OMG LOOK I HAVE A BF thing her new brand when the shine wears off huh........ so many other topics out there and she's focusing on her crusty ass creepy bf? sure, seems legit
i wouldn't put it past her to have edited the photo to make herself look skinnier, but i also don't think it's a definite yes she did? whatever she's got wrapped around her could be covering a lot more, like we can't even see her arms properly so the whole sense of her body is already kinda distorted, plus the weird twisting posing.
i agree! it is so terribly worded and doesn't make her sound professional at all. does it really count as a "donation" if patreon's model still works on taking money every month? seems more like a subscription without reward to me. what i don't get tho is.............. if she were smart, she could 100% continue to utilise patreon as a way to fund/kickstart her "business". if this is really something she wants to eventually charge clients for, why not trial that out via patreon which GASP is based on the model of people giving money for a reward/service etc. she supposedly has all this work to do in the BG which is why she won't be doing rewards for her patreon (not that her rewards were great anyway lol) but i don't see how the work she's doing to prepare her business is any different to the BS she's been spouting for months on her YT anyway. will her self help life coaching not just be the same supposed lessons she's been making videos about? ANYWAY she could easily turn patreon into a platform for running her business, at least initially. like say, open up certain tiers for people to have access to self-help resources she's put together, or for higher pledges offer more personal consultations and advice. it's a win win??? she's getting money coming in for something she supposedly wants to make a career out of, she's got clients and the people "donating" are getting a worthwhile reward for funding her lifestyle/"career". instead she's what? e-begging? hard pass. the fact she doesn't recognise what a great tool patreon can be doesn't really lend much confidence to her UWU GIRL BOSS persona
