I really enjoyed seeing more of Jeffree, mainly because his personality and charisma is nice to see. I know that Jeffree draws attention to the expensive things he owns through his videos, but unless I'm mistaken, isn't this documentary meant to sort of humanize Jeffree in a way? Shane wanted to get to the truth of Jeffree, but from the jump, he seemed really concerned about the money. Which isn't inherently wrong or something I fault him for completely, but I feel that it came in the way of him actually getting an emotional piece out of this experience. Constantly asking the price of one thing after the next made me cringe. I don't know what part it was in, but Jeffree mentions how he dislikes how a lot of his friends always expect him to pay for dinner, for drinks, etc. People expect money out of him, right? I felt that it was in poor taste how Shane knew this, and knew that it bothered Jeffree, but continued to pester him about price points. Shane wasn't expecting anything out of Jeffree, but he continued to place a heavy importance on money and it made me uncomfortable for Jeffree. I don't dislike Shane at all. I usually really enjoy his content, but I really think he missed the mark here.
This might be just me, but it irked me when Garret (or Garrett sorry) smeared the pigment on his face when Jeffree told them not to fuck around. I know Jeffree wasn't mad or anything, but it just seemed like childish behavior to have.
I think they feel special having a somewhat niche preference/interest, which, is kind of gross. Ultimately, it seems that they mold their personalities around the film adaptation, because I guess it isn't fun or attractive being a genuinely abused child (as in Nabokov's novel). It's almost like these women don't understand how society works? It's like they don't realize how gross their behavior is. Or maybe they do and it fuels them, I don't know. But this sort of fixation makes me uncomfortable.
God. I followed her for a while but stopped shortly after because of how draining she was to follow. I remember she was constantly trying to rake in sympathy about something or the next. She also has a Barcroft segment called "Acne Doesn't Make You Ugly" and it was pretty obnoxious to watch. In the show, hearing her talk about how painful it was was also pretty annoying. Because yes, cystic acne is painful, but the way she was describing it just irked me. You would think she was talking about having a gash, saying that it felt like her face was on fire. If you put on certain treatments? Yeah I can understand. But just normally? I don't know man. She just puts me off. I've had cystic acne for most of my life and am only now getting it under control. So I get the struggle. But it got tiresome hearing her talk about it like she was being valiant by broadcasting her skin issues online. I think it's just another way for her to get sympathy and attention to be frank. I mean to hear that she doesn't even go out of her way to be somewhat cleanly? It made me want to gag. Anyway, hearing about how she treated other people's families made me pretty pissed. I couldn't imagine being accepted into NUMEROUS homes and then being a pig. If you wanna be a pig in your own house that you pay for, go right ahead. But to do that in someone else's home is abhorrent. I'm glad more people are exposing her.
Yeah, I can actually see that now that I saw her most recent video. She got sort of snappy with Ellie (I think that's her name). I think I needed to see Emma in her less, I guess excited light? I hope to hear more from both sides. I wonder if Emma will ever reply to the allegations or not.
Yeah I do think it is a little sad, especially if you look back at her older content/personality, she didn't seem like one who'd buy into those standards and I was sort of shocked when I saw her becoming that person. Especially when she would come on camera with all of her friends who looked like they had all gotten lip fillers an hour before shooting.
I can tbh with the youtube culture and the people she hangs out with. I personally think she went a little overboard though, I always thought she was pretty before the plastic surgery and when she had some work done she still looked good, but now she's really rapidly aging, especially with her drug use.
Somewhere in this thread someone mentioned how she called someone a slut or something along those lines. I'm butchering it; I would be interested in a thread too. Does he honestly not know how he could be harder on her? I feel like Shane is either weirdly ignorant or just trying to deflect the responsibility he should've had. I think his empathy is getting in the way of him truly criticizing her to the full capacity she deserves. Plus, I feel like he sort of wasted a big opportunity to really get people on the 'hold tana accountable" train. I know he did go a little hard on her, but truly, if he really hammered into her (with reason obviously) I think more people would follow in his footsteps and really start treating Tana like the adult she is.
I watched Jenn back in her UC Davis (Is that the college?) days where she would primarily thrift and it's really sad to see where she went. To be fair, I can understand the need to do sponsorships, especially when you look at how youtube as a platform has morphed into more or less a business for most of the popular creators. But at this point it's becoming a little unbearable. It's either a sponsored video, a video flaunting her now extravagant lifestyle, or somehow an amalgamation of both. I think Jenn lost a lot of her relatable qualities years ago, and as always, she continues to say that she's happy she changed, and that it was for the better. And in some aspects I can believe that she did change for the better, but in a lot of ways she lost what made her unique and what made her such a popular figure in the community in the first place. When it comes to her eggie clothing line, I'm also disappointed with the piss poor quality that reflects how much she really cares about what she markets to her widely devout audience. A lot of people are talking about how some of their pieces didn't even survive a single round in the washing machine. I've bought clothes off of amazon with better quality than that. I think it also speaks volumes about her ethics. To think that she went from someone who was sourcing a lot of her fashion from second hand, she must know that what she's putting out is a disservice to her buyers, what with the mid to expensive costs of her clearly cheaply made clothing. Plus, a lot of the styles she markets are barely original and can be found in typical chain stores like H&M, Zara or Nordstrom. Over all, I'm sad to see where she went with her career. I had always had the idea that she would be one of the rare youtubers who held on to their personality and uniqueness, but I guess not.
Damn, I didn't know she was a findom. Makes sense though, considering the amount of flexing she does without any noticeable source of typical income. Her body is definitely to die for and I wonder what else is out there about her.
