warning... long speculation lol it seems like kenna reads these comments, so i will go ahead and give my two cents. hopefully she reads this with an open mind, because my intent isn't to blindly attack her. i don't remember where i found out about her, but i've heard her old username handle be mentioned a few times. i'm not an (ex) fan that's been following her for a while so i'm sorry if some things i say are inaccurate. i'm not going to mention prior scandals or her concerning decisions because that's just beating a dead horse. i think some of the comments about her unedited appearance are a bit extreme, and some people just want to nitpick every aspect of her stories just cause they wanna find a reason to hate on her. she is in no way the perfect angel she paints herself to be, but i can resonate to her behaviour on some level. i'm not a (hufflepuff?) trust fund kid, but i understand what it's like to try to live out an aesthetic, especially online. i am an introvert like she is, and (was) an insecure person that found solace in pretty mood boards. i revolved my whole personality around the aesthetics i liked and tailored every aspect of it to my daily life, because i felt like that was the only redeeming quality about me. there is nothing wrong with having a personal style, nor having an attractive online appearance, but i feel like some people can take aesthetics too far to the point that they become insecure perfectionists. for the longest time, i wouldn't dare post precious memories on my instagram page because they didn't look "pretty" enough even after trying to douse the photos in 6 layers of filters through snow. i'm white passing, but even then i would become truly (snow) white passing just so i could fit my pastel aesthetic like all the other pale, button-nosed girls who had adopted it. my personality and interest were hollowed out by the idea of conforming to one single aesthetic and i couldn't even listen to hips don't lie by shakira without feeling guilty for betraying the pastel pink princesses,,, or somethin'. i think during this time, i truly felt lonely because i was so focused on building an "unique" image that i didn't really have a personality to show up for it. i had pretty pictures and cute knick knacks, but what else was there to me? i manifested my personality into physical objects and an one-track idea instead of taking the time to cultivate my image whether i had the money to buy cute things or not. it is normal for someone to have phases in life and evolve their style, but kenna needs to realise that there is more to her than cute clothes and a pretty instagram feed. not everything you like has to conform into one single aesthetic. it's okay to like unconventional things and it's okay if real life doesn't look like it is straight of a beatrice potter book, because it truly doesn't. life doesn't automatically come with the "baby" filter from snow set up to 100 max. you can envision a personal image and an ideal environment you want for yourself, but you can't just like the idea of something, you have acknowledge what it takes to achieve that kind of lifestyle outside of social media. it takes effort to live out your dream lifestyle outside of social media, and every decision you make to accommodate a certain aesthetic comes with real life pros and cons. it's easy to be consumed by a single aesthetic on social media, but it's extremely hard to commit to it in real life, and that's what might make people like me (and probably her) insecure---- we become disillusioned and hate ourselves for not immediately being the dream princess we envisioned because we like a certain aesthetic. over time, i've learned that it's okay to like different types of things, deviate from an image once in a while, and accept that life doesn't always look picture pretty all while having my own personal sense of style. it's sad that kenna has to buy materialistic items and put on a facade just to fill in the possible voids of her life and ignore her surroundings. she shouldn't be forced into a cookie cutter mold because her fans demand it, or because she sees someone else copying her and wants to become unique. yeah, you might lose a few subscribers because you decide to stop hyper-editing yourself and express all the styles you love, but you'll have a strong, genuine fanbase that you can interact with when you start to detach yourself from alter egos and physical objects.
long "rant" i found out about this girl through my explore page, but i didn't really pay much attention to her until she started selling her... bath water. whether the product is actually selling or not, the horny idiot just about jumped outta anyone who endorsed it! incels and 13 year old roblox streamers are only enabling belle to do the bare minimum for attention and money. i don't like belle one bit, but the audience she is desperately trying (and succeeding) to market to is absolutely toxic and just as misguided as she is. belle is no innocent nymph, but its thanks to guys who bring their dakimakuras to school that she is gaining the crazy exposure she is. after reading through this thread, i actually feel some pity for belle because she feel like she has to drain the last 1% of barely expired memes, wear the same pink aliexpress wig, and make the same 2007 thrift store hentai manga ahegao faces just to appeal to flaky followers who get off on 1/4 of an exposed tit alone. she seemed like a creative person; i don't know if she actually designed her own room, but it was truly gorgeous and her old styles looked unique. unfortunately, it just seems like a lot of wasted potential. if belle would've been more open minded to her fans' suggestions and criticism, maybe turned her creativity into a career she would've liked, or at least would've looked to other options before resorting to softcore porn as an underage gal, i have a feeling she wouldn't be stuck in the rut she's in today. some of the slut shaming and degradation here is extreme, especially considering that an honest cam girl deserves respect as well. i believe that an adult woman of age has the right to do lewd shoots and expose their body assuming that they're mature and understand the risks of sexual careers. however, it is not acceptable that belle has been doing this stuff as 15-16 year old and promoting pedophilia. we may never know if getting into sexual content was against her will, an act of desperation, rebellion, or what it could possibly be, but i feel like she went down this route incredibly incorrectly. at a young age, the niche she chose seemed to be "kawaii uwu lolita cutesy barely legal e-girl" , and the supporters of that kind of content has the worst "fanbase"... considering the fact that's it's illegal to like child porn. it's just sad to think how belle can't really branch out in a different direction, try out her 2015 fairy kei style again, or even post a pic without sticking her tongue out, because she has to cater to an incel audience who thinks the hit or miss meme is still funny.
tl;dr: belle has a sour attitude and a gross aesthetic to boot, but belle keeps producing cringey and borderline illegal (at the time) content like this because her toxic fanbase enables it by spending $2500 to skype her 1x a month and see nothing but teases on her nsfw accounts, and buying her bathwater. both sides are to blame and girls, or just any cosplayer should be encouraged to do better than this. nobody should be feel like they have to be stuck in a cookie-cutter mold to get rich fast and... retire when they're THIRTY.... lmao
this made me think about hyojong and hyuna. its ridiculous that they were fired from their label just because they are dating. they seem much more carefree now that they dont have to hide their relationship, but its sad that other idols cant experience the same love and freedom since they have to stay single so they dont get mutilated by their greasy, delusional monster stans who write piss kink fanfics about them on wattpad
i spent a good hour lurking thru this thread n wow i am glad i did i haven't been following her for long and i didnt look through everything in this thread so pls correct me if i say something dumb: i followed her right before she released her song, so maybe no more than a month. i actually dont remember how i found her, but when i first saw her profile i didnt really think anything of it... just kinda ur basic tumblr girl that buys all her stuff off of depop because she thinks its cooler than going to goodwill i think im in the minority here bc i actually kinda like her face. she's pretty in an obscure, elf girl way but i could think of nicer lookin people her fashion sense judging from her new content is stuff i would be too shy to wear irl, but i think that simple style suits her scrolling down a bit i kinda start to get a weird vibe from her. this photo is what got me: idk? she's standing like a danganronpa character in the middle of nowhere and its so unsettling then i take a look at the knife pic thats before it and thats when i realize she collects weapons for the aesthetic and it hits me that she's trying to be edgy tumblr teen!! :/( it bothered me a bit, but it didnt make me unfollow because yeah acting edgy can be cringey, but i give people a chance to change + it wasnt that bad enough at the time, her thing with knives wasnt all up in my face i kinda stopped lurking after that day and she became some random girl i followed from there on her new song wasn't the worst thing i ever heard, but i think the chorus drags on for too long, and there's rlly no rhythm to it and it feels offputting. it doesnt make me feel better when i look at the song cover and see elita posing like a danganronpa character again with her homegoods tablecloth backdrop,, i thought i was the only one that thought the cover was super weird and im so glad im not lol one of her newer posts with the caption about serial killers was how i got here. i was lookin thru the comments and i saw someone bring up how elita was problematic and romanticized serial killers. i get a little excited because reading receipts and analyzing internet personalities is interesting to me!! an hour later not only did i found out she likes serial killers a bit too much, but she's also into incest, ddlg, advocates pedophilia, and is a pissbaby that blocks everyone that tries to expose her.....without a second look she just seemed like a sweet forest fairy that likes to share wholesome facts, but now she's honestly more like a swamp monter lmao i never seen myself press the unfollow button so fast. im not too surprised because there was always this little feeling i had about her when i first saw her account, but she's still sorta elusive to me...i just wanna figure out why she's like this?? how she became like this??? is she really mentally insane or is it just an aesthetic she's adopting??? i hope im not bringing back a dead topic but i couldnt ignore it, i just wanted to comment on her danganronpa posture so badly
