There is no deny that her main channel is "dead" my reply was aimed to someone that thinks (or seems that way to me) she has only one channel and she started with videos about Japan and changed her channel to vlogs, that is no what happen, she has two very distinctive channels with different content.
I agree with this, the video as a reaction video is a total failure. I guess she was excited about it and thought it was a good idea to make a reaction video, but hardly she is reacting to the music video. Already is a bad idea to react to something you can't show on screen but also something a very limited amount of people can watch due the nature of how the video was released.
The comment section was full of idiots accusing her of doing something illegal when she did nothing wrong, just fanboys thinking she uploaded the music video. She deleted plenty of comments.
That is not an excuse to make boring videos though, with a little imagination and creativity you can do cool things. But when you have all your content practically automated like you were in a sausage factory, is probably not easy to get out of that comfort zone and the end result is the same content over and over again.
Sharla simply got lazy, even her friend Greg is doing more IN JAPAN videos than her and nobody watches him, he has zero monetary incentive to do it. Sharla could use some of the money she is making to travel (not too far) and that will generate more videos and more money for her, is a win-win situation. https://www.youtube.com/user/mayavia21/videos
I don't see anything shady or lies, in fact she is too open and too honest. Most people will be embarrassed to admit they sleep with their husband/wife in a tiny bunk bed, let alone admit that a guest could end up sleeping with them in the top bunk bed.
Honestly I don't see anything weird in that thumbnail, she just put the brightness sky high. She looks her age, the best place to see it is in other people's videos (not Taylor). The video was nothing special but I enjoyed the change of scenary, I was hoping she will made great vlogs in Canada but she is doing vlog August, probably she will have to rush every video.
Maybe my memory fails me but I remember her mom was a little annoyed by her filming, I'm paraphrasing but I remember her saying thing like "do you have to film this?", "can''t you stop". I don't have any interest in any of this Canada vlogs and personally I feel this was the time to take a break and give full attention to her family , They didn't sign to be a youtube attraction, Taylor did.
You are comparing apples to oranges, a candid photo with zero manipulation with a video filmed in "studio" where she obviously is playing with lighting, camera angles and maybe different lenses or filters. There is no surgery.
