OT but I’m laughing at the thought that she’ll bring up her half white side up, her European ancestry. Like visit...France and say I’m ‘half French -insert fam equivalent word in French-‘. Heck, white people be real mixed 1/8 every country in Europe.
This is scary on a deeper level than just her disillusion that she can trick us into thinking she has lighter skin.
She has a huge influence on young, impressionable minds and this is damaging to all young, poc kids. It's worse enough how blatant the media favors white/fair skin, how poc people in the us are seen as lesser. You see this young woman who we know is darker, not might much but heavily pursues this appearance of lighter skin. As if she couldn't pursue this dainty, fairy, cottage nerd image with her natural skin tone. No, she has to be lighter because it's 'pretty, soft, delicate, cute, etc'. As a poc who grew up hating their skin tone, if I had liked Kenna any earlier and she was pulling this, I'd feel like garbage and yeah, I know you shouldn't let others affect you like that but back to the fact that most her audience is young adults/teens who seek role models and someone to show them how to act/look/etc.
Though I'd trade her my actual button nose for her nice one. Dang, like why she gotta hide her best traits??? Body positivity my butt.
The second November first hits, she’ll toss that intro out. Art is really lovely though, can’t wait to see it animated. Too bad it is for Kenna. The only time she seems to read books (aka just hp and Bradbury) is just in autumn. Im glad she shared who made it though, I wanted to know who made her first one, I really liked it. I would be more annoyed about her going witchy but so many use witchcraft as an aesthetic and not much more and those who do practice it have accepted it. I mean heck, I grew up with a Abrahamic religion but now am a pagan who practices witchcraft. My biggest issue is and will always be, that if you do have a thing for aesthetics and use like, bookworm as an example, can you actually be into it. Actually learn, read, do it. Get the crystals, but not only for the looks, learn the property associated with them. Like posting anime and whatever, actually watch it? I’m an ethical vegan but you bet I love posting pretty pics of my meals, etc but actually care and am passionate about it. Maybe her obsessions aren’t really many but more so with a illusion. She’s obsessed with the illusion that she is this certain thing, gets more, moves on. But the obsession of illusion is there, the mask just switches. But it’s still a mask. She ‘loves’ what she has proclaimed but clearly she loves...how many have said, the idea, the surface level perception people see, the illusion. Nothing deeper. Nothing fulfilling that can sustain her. Girl is lost and obsessive in negative ways. But as always, I’m hopeful she’s on the path to finding herself. Even though this trip to Europe is shaking my hopes. Really? Like travel out of a country you have limited time in to explore but I guess the trust fund baby has plenty of cash to fall on. She makes me always feel so conflicted.
Video was really nicely edited, great shots and angles, music was nice as well. The crafts were interesting and I’d do two, not the hat though. That looked so cheap and pretty bad. Rather make my own by buying fabric, she should of done that. Who paints a hat???? I’ve said it before, I think, but I got to her admire her film skills. But still, she can and I have no doubt, be making more content, show more honest personality, actually show more of Japan. Especially that. Bit more nitpicking but she did seem real oily as well, her skin that is. Don’t know if it was just sweat or her makeup.
Okay, this new video is something else, and I can’t believe I’m saying this but...she has inspired me. I’ve put off getting an autism screening, going as far as to set an appointment and bailing since it scares me. But if Kenna can do it, so can I. I related and understood many things she has said in the video and having done my own research can better grip what are autistic traits, stims, etc. (not to a pro degree, of course.) And as a gullible and forgiving person, when she mentions at the end she is not doing it for attention, etc, I kinda believe her. Like how can she possibly make autism an aesthetic? If she does, freak, Future me will be angry and betrayed yet again. But also I feel she’s genuine. Though I do feel bad as well if I ever spoke ill of her phases/obsessions because highkey, I can summarize my life by that, intense interests for certain things and endlessly obsess over it. And her only eating at a select few places/ordering same junk. I’m kinda a die hard eater of the same thing over and over and over again. (I’m not gonna list off more or else it’ll get even longer.) I don’t know whether to see her fully in a new light, since I can understand her better, but also I’m not excusing her past stuff. It’s strange. Part of me knows I can’t fault her for certain things but I’ve known other professionally diagnosed aspies who don’t let their behavior and diagnosis be an excuse to be a butt.
‘Boy’ maleficent? Not just male maleficent? I’m sorry but adding the boy is just weird, like you can say male, guy, dude, masculine, man, but adding the boy seems to me like her attempt at keeping this innocent and non sexual cuz ya know, ‘ace Kenna’. But it just turns out plain weird.
If that’s true, that’ll be another betrayal from her, I felt connected with that since I too was homeless with my family, lived in motels, bed surfed, etc. Her gimmick of trying to garner sympathy and be relatable is offensive to those of us that have been through such things and were happy to see someone we could relate to. (Not trying to get a pity party, I’m far from the only person have gone through that and honestly, I don’t consider it a tragedy to have lived through it. Just an event that shaped me like any other.)
Don’t recall the videos but she did mention losing a house, can’t remember how, maybe by fire or money issues but she did mention having to live with grace. Ha, I think she even mentions it in a photo about graces birthday.
No line that contains “You see”?! Shockers. Also that poem/riddle was...not good. Oof. And people make fun of poets who write ‘edgy’ works that really reflect their depression. In other words, my emo poems are better than that. (Not bragging, if my poems are subpar, hers read as unclear and a sad attempt at a whimsical, wonderland-like mess.)
Without considering this was sponsored/has associate links, The video was actually nice and I didn't click away, this would be the second time, since I actually enjoyed the journal video (not counting the short montage video), that I fully watched a video hers. The looks were all real lovely, the setting, the music, the way she filmed it and edit it. Her hair is...well I hope she doesn't dye it anytime soon and let's her hair grow. She did say she tragically couldn't braid her hair yet if that implies she's grow it out? Don't get me wrong, I'm pretty sure no one asked for a boho lookbook. Though I met her first in that stage and was hooked. She really should of filmed in less ambiguous settings but I kinda get it, boho look in a neon lit street is a harsh clash, though a small coffee shop would do. But I still would rather see her do stuff in Japan, show locations we can't get anywhere else, show monuments, staples of Japan, etc. Now onto the fact that most stuff was from fast fashion yesstyle is disappointing and shallow. Come on, buy second hand, or sustainable, you got the cash, girl for the pricey stuff. (Or use depop) I'm trying to be an optimist and believe she got this video out because she is trying to have a better schedule, work flow or whatever but I'm not holding out much hope since, yet again, yesstyle sponsor/affiliate links. She probably just shat this out so they can give her stuff still. But maybe she truly wanted to make a boho look for fun and like the clothing herself???
Not wk her, but I do recall her saying she really liked mushrooms, liked to learn about them, etc. And I think she mentioned it in her boho phase, and white hair, rustic, phase. I think. My hope is that she was genuine with at least that tidbit but recalling her rabbit, fern, makes me remember how aesthetically obsessed she is. Even a innocent creature was just there to embody something she wasn't. I really hope someone in her life has the guts to tell her that she can be more than just a virtual catalogue of pleasing photos and actually be happy.
About the video. I highkey loved the aesthetic and I'm a pure sucker for stationery and journals. But man did she kill what would of been a thoroughly liked video with that monotone voice, she also looked like she was in utter pain. Girl, being an intp or whatever doesn't mean emotionless, we've seen videos where you gushed and seemed interested in what you were talking about. (Faked or not, seems like you're too lazy for even that?) This girl equally frustrates me and saddens me. (Also makes me motivated not to waste my time on things I will toss away).
