So, let me get this straight... henniemonclair makes an intro for Kenna, she uses it in ONE video, even cuts it off later on for reasons unbeknownst to us, and the artist STILL chooses to make another one?
Some people speculated the two of them had had a falling out after Kenna cut off the intro and hennie deleted it from her Instagram... I guess they must have reconciled since then?
Okay, now it's more or less 100 % confirmed that Johnson was bullshitting when he said he grew up in Japan. Remember that interview he did with the Japan Times last year (i think it was posted here)? https://www.japantimes.co.jp/life/2017/07/12/digital/joey-bizinger-sees-youtube-following-grow-amid-anime-renaissance/ Bizinger grew up in Sydney, the son of an Australian father and Japanese mother. He learned Japanese growing up, and came [to Japan] every year to visit family. “Every couple of months, my grandma would record all of this anime off of TV and send VCR tapes to us,” he says. “My earliest memory of anime was just me blankly watching the same ‘Doraemon’ episode over and over again.” Sydney, however, lacked an anime community (“or I didn’t know where it was,” he says). Instead, in high school Bizinger turned to the internet to learn more about the series he was interested in. What are the odds that Jobo, a person who never misses an opportunity to brag about Japan and his Japanese ethnicity, would all of a sudden forget about him growing up in Japan during an interview? I'll answer that question... ZERO! The Anime Man? More like the Anime LIAR
To be fair, there’s a chance he could have taken on an Australian accent even while mostly living in Japan, provided he was exposed to Australian English enough (regularly meeting and communicating with his Australian family members, watching Australian children’s tv programs et cetera)... the reason I’m not buying his claims about him growing up in Japan more is the fact that he speaks like an anime character. If he had been living in Japan more then he probably would have picked up on the right intonation et cetera, especially given the country’s (linguistic) homogenity. My theory is that his mother probably made him watch a lot of anime as a kid so that he would learn the language even while living in Australia and then she didn’t realize he had taken on the incorrect intonation before it was too late. That, and I am pretty damn certain that he’s mentioned on at least one occasion that he grew up in Australia
She could just have asked the translator to use Modern Standard Arabic or, if she was so keen on going for a dialect, whatever dialect is the most widely known in the Arab world (I've heard it's Egyptian Arabic)... but apparently Saudi Arabia is the only Arabic country that matters as that's where her future oil sheik husband lives, so let's not do that
I think it boils down to some kind of desire to pretend to be ”real” adults (I’d say a lot of people are still not truly adults at the ages of 18-19) and wanting to have a party and dress up, especially if you have lots of money and you want to flex. In our case I think it also has to do with American things being seen as ”cool”. I don’t know, I mostly went because I was curious to see what it was like + I already had a dress so I didn’t have to spend money. Obviously it’s fun and exciting for a lot of people but it’s not for me
Holy shit, proms are S U P E R F U C K I N G E X H A U S T I N G I already don’t like big noisy crowds and social situations tend to tire me out due to my Aspergers so when you’re crammed into a relatively small space with such a huge amount of people and you’re expected to be super over the top social it becomes extremely tiring after a while... we’re only at the aperitif and I already feel physically drained Also some of the dresses look ridiculously expensive considering that the people wearing them are only high schoolers. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look glamorous at a ball but it’s clear that some people saw this as an opportunity to flex and show off how much money their parents earn
The term "gay/s" has been in use as a noun to refer to homosexual men since the 1960s-1970s, initially it was used by gay men as a self-designation term but then others began using it as well https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay so while it is true that it can be used for both sexes it's more commonly associated with gay men. In Swedish we use the expression "HBT" (homosexuella, bisexuella och transpersoner) when referring to the LGBT community and I personally think it's a better term
"A 15 year old can have sex with an 80 year old", as if it's those types of relationships Swedish law makers had in mind when they set the age of consent to 15. Even if the age of consent here is lower than in the United States that doesn't mean that romantic/sexual relationships involving a 15-17 year old and a much older adult are socially accepted or encouraged. The dude asking why she had condoms was doing the right thing, Mish on the other hand was just bullshitting as usual
This feels like a déjà-vu >Don't check Kenna's thread for one day >Come back only to find out she has done/said stupid shit again and FUCKING HELL DID SHE JUST CALL LGBT PEOPLE "SEX OBSESSED"
Why does she expect the LGBT community to include her in our midst when she hasn't done anything for the community in return? Because even when not taking into account the whole "asexuals are not LGBT" part it's hilarious how she expects the community to cater to her but she can't be bothered to cater to us. The few times when she brings up the LGBT movement she only does it to talk about her being aro-ace because Kenna defines LGBT not itself but as relative to her asexuality. If you want to be included in the community so bad then maybe you should at least work for it a little bit instead of doing jack shit and then posting lengthy captions on Instagram where you cry about "aces not having the right to sit at the LGBT table" or whatever? Maybe she thinks reading yaoi counts as "showing support for the LGBT community" but most people don't consider being into a pornographic genre to be an act of solidarity, sorry. Then again, this incident really personifies her, does it? Make no effort, and then complain when people take your lack of effort for what it is "I cannot be arsed to upload a video more often than once in a blue moon, and yet I cannot understand why people complain about me letting my followers down" "I cannot be arsed not to act overly aggressive and like everybody is out to get me whenever somebody isn't practically licking my boots, and yet I fail to comprehend why people don't like my attitude" "I cannot bring myself to show support for the LGBT community or even talk about it except for when I feel like stroking my own "aro-ace" ego, and yet I don't get why those sex obsessed loonies, I mean, my fellow LGBT people don't want anything to do with me" I am so tired of her bullshit. Now I'm gonna go get some coffee
Obviously I'm only speaking for myself but I downvote comments that are from trolls or are needlessly aggressive/white knight-ey so no, that doesn't mean I will immediately downvote you just because of differing opinions. I was just curious because I wasn't expecting a Kenna fan (or subscriber/whatever you are) to show up
Just so we are in the clear, are you merely a subscriber of Kenna's or are you actually a fan of hers? Because I noticed that you've never posted in any of the Simply_Kenna threads but at the same time you appear to know quite a lot and be passionate about the Kenna VS Lunestelle debacle and Kenna in general

For a long time I assumed that Lunestelle plagiarizing Kenna was an overexaggeration or even lies from the latter's side seeing how a lot of aesthetic™ Instagrammers have the same style and copy each other anyway but now it seems pretty clear to me that she's aggressively copying her (even if that doesn't warrant her being ripped into pieces by Kenna's rabid fanbase). The biggest question mark is, why Kenna of all people? Sure, I suppose her feed was kind of appealing once upon a time but if I had been in Belle's shoes and I had been attacked by Kendoll & c:o I probably have been very angry/sad and not have wanted to copy her anymore. Instead Belle not only continues doing it, but she also tries to suck up to Kenna. WFT? Someone in this thread (I think it was @Umbreon) mentioned that her Instagram feed used to be much nicer before she started copying Kenna and I am inclined to agree:
Or, if she doesn't want to go back to that type of aesthetic she could just let herself be inspired by Wes Anderson's films. She's a fan and his films are very aesthetically pleasing, so why not have a Wes Anderson themed Instagram instead of a Kenna copycat one?
