Thank God for this forum. I played Tati's vid in the background while I was cleaning, because there is no way in hell I'm sitting down to watch her talk for 43 minutes. I was about to start the laundry just to have something to do while playing James' video, but I got the details here. Yay. I wouldn't side with anyone at this point. Jesus, it's all so complicated. Im definitely disgusted at Jeffree. They should just live stream meeting and clarifying shit together lmao I don't see this being resolved irl without an online audience.
I apparently follow a lot of personal accounts that are ArianaGrande stans on Twitter. Now the issue is that fans are attacking those who are criticizing Ariana, and when one of them DM'ed her to stop her fans, she replied like this
I'm going to have to mute them for a while. It's been chaos since I asked about the tweet I screencapped here. Either her face was done by a genius or she has great makeup artists. I can see how her face would be different with the proper manipulation of makeup, especially her eyebrow arch, eyeliner, and a lot of contour, but at the same time you never really know. I remember watching Frankie's vlog where he was unboxing Big Brother stuff (?) and he had photographs of him and Ariana when she was younger; had the ponytail but still red Cat hair. She said something to the effect of puberty coming late but hitting her right; "that's why everybody says I've had surgery!"
I'm diagnosed with PTSD. As much as having a routine is great, I can't imagine the hell she must be in to be constantly close to triggers. What the fuck. It's not like you can control when a panic attack comes or when you remember something that can make you freeze in place, and she's onstage with thousands and thousands of cameras on her as she performs.
I loved Lil Dicky for years, and I'm still not sure where I stand with the Freaky Friday collab, but I'm looking forward to what else Ariana and Justin will be singing on the song.
They're both trying to keep up with Youtube, I think, with Dan's "rebrand" - honestly his personality is the same so even when he set fire to the llamas and maltesers part of his brand and embraced the void, nothing really changed with his content - and Phil revamped his... Look and background? But no change in content as well. I remember they were stopping a lot of things that "made" the phandom, including PINOF (the q&a / dare videos) and April Fool's videos. A lot of fans thought they were quitting YouTube, but since Phil is still uploading with a new look, and Dan followed up his April's Fools tweet ("i'm uploading," then replied with, "when i am ready thank you for your continued support), I'm inclined to think that them stopping the usual stuff for the Dan and Phil brand is a.) a coincidence or b.) their strategy to slowly ease in the remaining fans into concepts that will be better for their channel. Dan also suffers from depression, so I believe that's what's stalling him, or some other things in his private life. I don't know if I'm still a fan of Phil. He really doesn't have a niche, and I'm not inclined to click on another video about the 5 WEIRD things he bought. And... I've only just read through this thread, and it is weird he's 30... And acting like a child... I've always liked Dan's humor, lol. What keeps me as a fan is that I love his stories and storytimes; I always get a laugh out of it. I'd like more of those if he's going to come back and upload consistently, but I do know there's only so many interesting things that can happen in his life. He's also good at discussing serious matters - his mental health - and keeping it easy to digest and humorous. He'd be good at the commentary type videos trending nowadays. Both of them can use the Dan and Phil Go Outside thing and do more vlogs / A Day In The Life type of videos. They're the only ones I've watched regularly on Youtube, tbh, along with ItsKingsleyBitch. I was 13 and too lazy to branch out. I hope they manage.
I'm so confused; isn't the appeal of virtual youtubers is that... they're virtual... personalities...? i'm basing it off what little I've watched of Kizuna AI (i got curious about virtual youtubers lol). It's a literal self-aware character with an appealing personality and with such fluid design it's /almost/ real. Felt like I was watching an anime character breaking the 4th wall over and over tbh haha. AI pokes fun at not being the same as her viewers; jokes that she's always technically nude in a dress-up video because it's all data. I was meh with Venus trying it out because it's not my thing and hearing her voice + trying to associate it with a different persona couldn't work for me... But... She's claiming she's Venus at the same time she's Malice? Huh???? I'm no longer subscribed but went back to see what the live would result in. I'm even more confused and sad for her. Manaki must play a huge part in her support system; it'll be sad if they really have broken up.
Finished the video. Not the content for me. Unsubscribed. I wish her luck, though. I saw a comment that said Venus should have just made a goodbye video and I would honestly prefer that. She could have introduced Malice after.
having a sexual persona is so commonplace now that i've always assumed her tweeting "i'm a whore" all the time is part of her brand and didn't take the whole daddy stuff seriously until i read this thread. (out of topic but naominikola is amazing brb gotta RT that)
Jeffree is so involved and passionate about his makeup brand, and I can't imagine how it feels to be excited about announcing something he'd been working hard at to be stolen. It was satisfying to hear the perpetrators have landed jail time. Despite the incident, I'm excited he's releasing concealer. I've been holding back on spending a lot on makeup, and I want to finish off a perfectly fine eyeshadow palette I still have before I cave into Jeffree's products. Highlighter and eyeshadow aren't really a priority for me as someone who just wants to look decent for certain events, but concealer is a must. I expect a high-quality formula from him, and since he's been dragging brands left and right for not having a diverse shade range, I bet he developed an inclusive one, too. EDIT: i had paused the vid earlier and there are setting powders too! The packaging for the concealer is the cutest shit I've seen.
Watched the music video. Not my thing. I can't understand anything and no one's coming out with lyrics just yet. The video is cute. They look like they're just having fun and I guess that's what Ariana wants right now. I wouldn't mind an HQ vid though.
I hope she's just promoting it. I... I'm not a fan of the concept. The skit was lowkey cringe, but I really do feel her sentiments. Living her teenage life as a literal "doll" is disturbing. I guess I'm echoing the desire for her to do vlogs/storytimes and whatnot. This was unexpected.
He uploaded LWIAY today. Last I checked the subreddit r/PewdiepieSubmissions was down. It was probably previously filmed. Do you think Pewds will make a statement on video? Maybe he'll just be making his usual content, let the focus on him fade away?
