Her attitude towards boys is so offputting. I have a younger brother myself and when he was 12 he was cute and all but so damn annoying I even contemplated on shipping abroad. Has Kenna ever interacted with a young child?? Because as much as kids are cute and loveable, at least imo since I have issues with adults more than kids, they aren't all that fun. They're loud, some of them have attitude problems, dirty, cry too much, judgemental, etc. Little boys fall into that category and I don't understand why she has such an obsession with them when they're not all that great. While I'm trying to label Kenna as a pedophile she gives me the vibes of those female teachers who were caught having sex with their underage male students but got away with the crime since "boys are easy when it comes to sex". Maybe she likes little boys not because they're cute or whatever but because if anything were to escalate with a young boy the punishment for the crime is not as harsh compared to a guy doing this to little girls. The only reason I'm saying this is because Kenna has a group chat with little boys, something that would not fly under the radar if Kenna was a man with the same group chat. She doesn't find it strange and it's concerning since most creeps who like kids also don't find their obsession strange. ** That being said I might be analyzing Kenna a bit too deeply so feel free to disagree with me
I find Mira to fall under the category of those people who have to know and be part of everything. I'm not sure if this has happened to other people but I've had the experience of meeting someone who is curious of my ethnic backgroud (i'm Canadian) and when I tell them my parents are from West Africa they automatically say "Oh I have a friend from Kenya". Like that's greats Paul but what does that have to do with my parents being from West Africa? This obsession with "fitting in" or being part of everything is an anyoning habit people have and I think Mira is one of those people where you can't say anything without her trying very hard to relate.
True but she tries so hard to she's that she COMPLETELY done with Japan/Korea and all the pop culture that those two countries have to offer so that might be why some ppl find it strange. It's fine to not be into something anymore but you don't mind keeping some items around vs. preaching that you are totally done with something and no longer want to associate yourself with it. I'm not into shojo manga anymore but I still have some book around however I'm completely done with very girly/frilly dresses so I threw them all away. I guess that's what ppl are referencing to if that makes any sense
We'll have to wait and see what she does now to see if she's actually changed. If she does put out content that is good then she did reflect on herself but if she continues with the same bs she has now then... I'm still waiting for a video explaining what happened to the documentary, where is the money and if she has an actual date set up for the release of her documentary because even though she said it's still a work in progress I don't believe we will ever see her documentary.
Seems like it's a model/talent agency geared towards foreigners. Nothing necessarily odd about it since there are many agencies in Tokyo that help foreigners get small modeling, TV and acting gigs. It seems those Youtubers are trying to get into the entertainment industry (?) or something like that since let's be honest I doubt YT is a good source of income if you're living in Japan.
tttDamn girl, not having a booty isn't bad and it doesn't make you less black either. I'm on the skinnier side when it comes to body types and I but is small but it's not the end of the world tbh. Not to mention you can't fool genetics it's pretty clear that her butt has always looked like that even when she was skinny and it probs won't get any bigger (nothing wrong with that though). Once again her "woke" black woman phase simply reinforces stereotypes that black women are trying so hard to get rid of: you must be thick/slim thickclapbacks are a must (no matter what the situation may be)you can't enjoy things from other cultures cuz you are neglecting your own (that only applies to certain cases tbh) or you're ____ race washedbeing hood/ghetto is a must even though black people aren't carbon copies of each other and some us have never seen a ghetto in our lives Conclusion: Ify is a walking stereotype. She is NOT embracing her roots, I have yet to see a video since her comeback that talks about her heritage, explores her heritage, talks about the differences/similarities with African-American culture vs. West African culture. All she's doing is making herself look stupid and other black people look monolithic.I'm not saying she needs to be an ambassador for all black people and talk about racism and whatnot but when you put yourself out there as a person who wants to discuss you're race/culture you have a bit of an obligation to make sure you are putting yourself in the best light and not reinforcing stereotypes that would only further damage your image and others. If you can't/don't want to do that don't go around with saying you're embracing your roots, that you will talk more about black culture, etc cuz you're not helping the issue you're making it worst. Bottom line stop acting like a walking stereotype and get your act together. Go on another hiatus if you need to, reevaluate yourself and then come back or don't cuz YT is not for everyone.
Cheyenne is still active and is the co-host of prettybrownandnerdy. her kpop channel is pretty much dead. Cheyenne seems to be what Ify is not a black girl who is proud of her roots but also enjoys content that goes against the perceived stereotypes/notions associated with black people. The pretty brown and nerdy channe mostly discusses comics, video, games etc seems pretty cool.
LOL Ify is so lost and I don't think she'll be able to find her way back tbh. She's in denial and the river she's on is long. I can't even feel bad for her tbh she changed herself so much and it wasn't necessary. I'm all for black women doing what they want, being one myself, but everytime I see a black woman changing herself to fit some sort of persona (? at least for some of them I think it's a persona) ( it's sad cuz it only reinforces the persona ppl judge us for. There is nothing wrong with wanting a curvier body, wanting to embrace your roots and all that but that doesn't make you more black. If you're skinny you're still black, if you don't know much about your roots you're still black, if you like different cultures (without being obsessed and deniying your own) you're still black. She could've come back slim thick, embracing her roots AND still liking different cultures cuz it can help other black girls who maybe feel left out cuz nobody who looks like them enjoys jpop, kpop or whatever. IDK but the more I look at some of these YT like Kennie, Lala, Ify the more I'm kind of dissapointed. I'm not asking them to be the voice of a whole race cuz that's impossible but I do wish they would do something different other than story times (that support harassment) or 180 degre changes (that for some reason give them the right to throw shade at others). Maybe I'm looking to much into this
Kenna thinks boys clothing fitting her is revolutionary because of her weird "shota" obsession. In her mind the little boys' section is for boys ages 3-10 max because they tend to be the shortest around that age, generally, speaking. 12-16-year-old boys can be tall, my brother is 5'10 but he's only 15, but they're not considered little in Kenna's dictionary so she acts like it's a big deal that she can wear the same thing as the boys she creeps on
I'm worried for her kids developmental health. Playdates and playgroups on a daily basis aren't a must kids don't always need to have those kind of activities that being said they need to interact with other humans since it's important for their growth. They need to see other people, talk to other kids that look like them or don't look like them. Humans are social beings and even though the age milestones are overdone by some parents imo they are important in some aspects like knowing if your kid is speech delayed, have a developmental problem etc. Mind you I don't have kids myself but I've had to work with them and I've seen some parents do things that are not beneficial for their child but unfortunately they are completely oblivious to it or won't take advice from other people (which I understand its their child and there is certain level of protectiveness parents have).
She could've just said thanks to the little kids section of Target. If this was anyone one else I wouldn't care that they picked something out of the boys section, heck I've done it a few times too, but Kenna has a strange fascination with boys so idk what to think of it tbh
Um she does know that not all faceshapes look good in bangs and if you want to pull them off it's better to talk to a stylist and have them give you some ideas on what sort of bangs might suite your faceshape. I know some salons in my city and I think Tokyo (correct me if I'm wrong) have consultations(?) or the option to have a stylist look at you face and suggest if bangs would be a good idea. Jisoo does not have the same faceshape as Joan imo, they're not the same person or age. And while age shouldn't define what you can and cannot do certain styles I think are not suitable for people of a certain age but Joan doesn't seem to get that.
I think her trying to hide her weebness isn't too surprising tbh; Japan has been in the "spotlight" for much longer than Korea in terms of pop culture and everyone who was aware of "Cool Japan" knew at least one annoying Japan fan who wouldn't shut up about the country and its anime, manga, music, girls, etc. So there seems to be a long standing "legacy" of weebs however Korea has just recently become are really big thing. Kpop was known back in the day but it's only recently that it's really exploded and people are hearing it. Being a kboo is a thing but it's still not as referenced as a weeb yet but in a few years I'm sure it'll hit that status. *I'm not sure if I made any sense sorry
