as qualle said, poki is still around but he was a former stray and they've stated he's not good on the leash and didn't get the same early training that haku and nagi got as they were adopted as kittens, cats also have different personalities and aren't the same so it makes sense they wouldnt risk poki getting loose or involving him in the food videos as they've shown (i think i saw him in one but it was stated he'll just go for the food rather than watch like the other two). He's still got street tendencies and seems to be very food motivated so much that he goes into trash cans even when provided with enough food, many people i know who had former strays that are now indoor only cats cant let them out like they do their other cats because of their past but it doesn't mean they're not loved as much or anything, just gotta adapt to their pets history and whats safe for them.
tbh I hope it comes back to bite him on the ass, you don't just go take advantage of internet culture, ditch it when you get popular enough and try to pretend it never happened. He made the choice to be filthy frank and anyone who was on the internet in the 2000's knew 4chan culture/cancer meme culture is a toxic cesspool, he made merch, sold songs and embraced it until he decided to throw it aside, he encouraged the culture behind it. If he wanted to do music from the start he should've never done filthy frank nor continued it on so long, the internet culture is still growing and filthy frank memes are still used today, i dont think it would've died out for at least another few years and even so, im of the part that thinks he should've embraced his past and not been ashamed of it. even now surreal memes are hella popular and he was the king of surreal. I can't bring myself to be happy for him seeing as it feels like he took advantage of all his old fans then tossed them aside, at least his rapping/singing was unique as pink guy ridiculous lyrics aside.
I think Kim secretly does well for herself (I mean even years ago she was a spokesperson for liz lisa and she has her degree and looks to be from a wealthy family, i dont think she's taylor rich but she's definitely in the upper middle bracket) so she knows she has the money to spend on youtube videos that attract attention (lets be real her audience is probably 14-18yr old weebs/kpop fans, used to be more cutesy japanese girly fashion but she's moved on from that in the last few years) so she knows haul videos get views? but i agree i dont see the reason to try be humble about it, just say you work for the money you spend, as a youtuber you dont always have to justify where you're getting your money from but it does create a bit of a weird situation where unrealistic standards are set if you show yourself as 'lul normal girl!' with unrealistic spending patterns
As sad as it is to say goodbye to a pet, I'm glad they finally did the right thing for him, I personally wasn't very comfortable with them keeping an old pet alive and in pain (again, personal view is its cruel to keep a suffering old animal alive) but its safe to say they loved him a lot and I'm glad he had such a long love filled life with them
tbh im pretty disgusted she didnt leave the game instantly if she DIDN'T like the kids stupid comments, it was a perfect encapsulation of her fanbase (thirsty underage dudes) and if she was uncomfortable (which i wouldve personally been) she should've left and stated "do not go after the kid, he is underage and we all say embarrassing things at age 12" because as a fucking legal adult she was completely in control of the situation and should've handled it as such. Instead she kept going, didnt mute, baited reactions and didn't tell her white knights to leave a CHILD alone. THE KID IS 12 FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. Pedomane is accurate, i'd honestly even go as far as saying she fucking enjoyed the controversial attention knowing that a 12 year old jerks off to her, what an egotistical awful person.
Her lips will probably never truly go back to normal...you don't stretch something that much for so long but tbh I'm glad she felt she didnt have to do it anymore, I know there was a lot of pressure on her and kendall to fit in with the rest 'aesthetic wise' even though they didnt have the same father as the older siblings. I hope she's found solace in herself and how she looks naturally, i'm all for do what you want to feel pretty, and I'm glad she feels she doesn't need to do this anymore to feel good.
there's also an element of luck, I have a friend who makes a living as a streamer but he's played pro before, there are people who play pro now who dont have as many subs/viewers as him, its definitely a right place right time thing as well, she must've just had enough traction to get as big as she did and found her niche, so although there are better players than bigger streamers...once you're big enough for your niche market you spread.
Sophie is not model material, she's fairly pretty (in a plain way) and slim but like everyones said, she's as stiff as a board and lets everything else 'wear' her rather than her 'wearing' the clothes. She's very same facey where she doesn't hold any expressions just a simpering smile. She's only getting away with it in Japan cause she's a token white girl sadly, the photographers really good but she just blends in, rather than standing out.
I find most vegans pretentious and have no idea about the lifestyle/actual cause and just eat it bcuz 'oh they feel bad for animals' or that its popular when in reality if you died and there was open flesh your cat or dog would probably eat you without a second thought, animals dont give a fuck, food is food and you're in denial thinking it'd be any different. That cow you 'saved' by not eating it would've probably died by being eaten in the wild, not eating meat makes no difference. Kids are fucking stupid as shit but parents are even worse because they're the ones that 'raise' shitty kids. Pregnancy is horrifying and I'd rather die than go through it, destroying my skin, organs and body for someone else? Nah. Avocado is disgusting, sorry not sorry. Most shounen manga is all the same premise just with different kids and people who ship 12 year olds together fictional or not are absolutely disgusting. I didn't like KVD ever since she went on her vegan preachiness so her being an anti vaxxer is no surprise.
oh good she actually did get a fringe and tbh it frames her face much better. Duncan looks fine with it but I'd say thats the good ol asian genes where you look younger than you are. Still not a fan of the color on her but with that cut it does look better.
I liked her with the brown and turquoise was it? She needs some dry shampoo or something but the blonde is doing her no real favours because to me at least its making her look a lot older. Plus tbh I feel like she'd benefit from a fringe or something...idk her hairstyle is bland? some people suit the middle part but I feel like it just elongates her already long face and doesn't do much for her. As for her bitchiness, at the start I was wondering why she was constantly 'cut' from friend groups/jvlogger groups and although we know it used to be queen sharla of bitchiness but when someone constantly plays victim I get suspicious, especially because her and duncan (as much as I like some of his videos) are insanely passive agressive people. They seem like the couple that sticks to each other like glue, cites that "they're best friends and thats enough for us" and creates an invisible barrier around where they 'hope' ppl will put in the effort to pop the bubble but in reality its just them repelling people.
I've never really watched pewdiepie, I ofc knew of him and maybe saw a video or two over the years but even I can tell Alinity was only out for the quick cash grab that everyone seems to take on pewds and other big youtubers because their content themselves is completely bullshit and boring so they're relying on claiming some money off someone elses video. Alinity was always a twitch thot, boobie streamer, titty streamer, whatever you wanna call it. She knows what she's doing and now she's trying to backtrack and seem like the victim? Nah bitch, you literally said "CAN WE COPYSTRIKE PEWDIEPIE" and then went on to gloat about the money. I hope she gets shut down or chased off twitch bcuz we dont need more shitty female streamers making it hard for women who actually want to stream seriously and not just use their tits for money.
