But Lindsay and Britney already had careers established when they had their meltdowns. This girl got famous for having a meltdown on tv! Same with the cycle of the Kardashians~ Kim and her family became the most famous family in the world after a sex tape, and seeing that celebrity come-up play out over the news & tv these past few years has spawned a generation of brats trying to mimic them~ getting lip injections, fat transfers, tanning their bodies to the fullest, dressing exactly as the sisters dress. Throwing away career & goal opportunities in the hopes of being famous for sleeping with the right person or wearing the right lace-up nude choker. It's silly. Now here we have "Cash Me Ousside" girl (who I won't even honor by using her real name, which I always skip over reading)~ you think seeing some bratty kid like this blowing up and getting famous overnight isn't sending that same message/mentality to even younger kids? Hell, who needs a career, all I need to get millions of followers and world adoration is to shock people and pick fights and be disrespectful to authority figures! Let the bookings & deals come my way... I get not necessarily wanting a thread for this girl, but it does speak to a bigger (and scarier) issue about the world we're living in & celeb culture~ every generation seems to reward fame & fortune for more and more stupid and embarrassing people.
I'm so confused when people say they love the Tay/Venus videos so much, or "you can see how genuine their friendship is!" like, I feel like I'm watching different videos? I see Venus always looking uncomfortable, put-off and slightly confused or like she may break out in hives at any second, and Taylor awkwardly trying to 'make conversation' by pointing out useless things or talking at Venus instead of including her more (like making her a set piece rather than an actual person in her vlog). Same with how everyone looooved that silly outfit prank Taylor pulled on Venus. I thought it was appalling how Tay even told her it was a prank when yes the outfit items seasonally don't go together or match but it was clear Venus was werking it anyway. She looked good. When Taylor literally explained, while pointing at Venus, "I think individually the pieces are cute but all together it looks ugly," with a legit pAT ON HER SHOULDER felt so Regina George to me. I was surprised she left that in, the look on Venus' face was soul-crushing (and I don't even care for the girl all that much to begin with)
Her Valenine's Day Mukbang she just posted today was actually really sad to watch~ I think she's pilled out again. Never mind the obvious emotional eating, she keeps looking around the entire room throughout the video, her eyes not really seeming to focus, and sort of bulging slightly every now and again, rarely looking at the camera. Her general attitude seemed numb and indifferent too, the way Xanax sorta makes you just not care at all. She also picks up tHE ENTIRE PIZZA and is like "How do you eat this?" and instead of cutting the pizza like a normal person she starts eating away?? Then complaining about how much crust she's having to bite into? Not gonna lie, I ugly-laughed. Of course the comments are just people saying she's a pig or the generic "Omg this is why I luv Trish she just went in on that pizza, so #me" People don't like to acknowledge that she has a serious problem, turning a blind eye to the pill usage and explaining away her eating disorder.
Holy crap, she honestly looks very sickly and shabby in that video clip. The lack of circle lenses, the paper-thin lips, the frizzy hair, the enormous square head, the aeygo sal that just looks like puffy eye bags. I'm confused as to why she'd post it, let alone edit it that way.
I still follow Melissa on various social media, I always felt she was the most transparent of the Millionaires back in the day~ she just struck me as very insecure, but overall super smart and genuinely sweet. She was constantly referred to as "the fat one" of the group, and people were always the most derogatory towards her; then when she rapidly lost a bunch of weight everyone was telling her how sickly gross she looked and she needed to get help. I'd wager that the online abuse contributes to her relationships with men; I'm sure it helps validate her attractiveness by feeling desired or wanted, so I think that's why she jumps around from guy to guy. I honestly don't see infedility as that big of an issue, and something that happens pretty commonly irl as a displacement method (and this is coming from someone who also somewhat idolized her back in the day). I actually hung out with her once during the Millionaires' tour with BrokeNcyde years ago (oh god, the cringe!) I bought my friend and I tickets to their DGAF meet and greet, which was spent on their tour bus and she and her sister were honestly the sweetest girls ever. They were very talkative and generous with their alcohol and spending time with everyone to make sure everyone felt comfortable (and mind you, my friend and I weren't exactly the cool kids at this time, we were both quite chubby still and just hadn't a clue about fashion) It meant a lot that girls who were so much wealthier than us and "cooler" than us were so down to earth, and for that reason I'll always have a soft spot for Melissa. Not to mention once you get over her and Allison's high pitched squeals when they're drunk on Bad Girls Club, you realize they're actually like the only likeable girls of that season.
Uh, androgyny doesn't mean "men being mistaken for women" or vice versa (which, at least one of those models posted above is actually a trans woman). It isn't even about trying to look like the opposite sex; it's when someone's style or mannerisms have stereotypical traits of both sexes. Jeffree clearly doesn't want to be mistaken for a female, but he enjoys dabbling in both masculine and feminine things (his clothing, for instance, he'll wear tight girly leggings with a men's biker jacket, etc). Same with his voice, he doesn't try to feminize it whatsoever. Or with his jawline, which he got done surgically but didn't have the surgeon turn it into a teeny female jaw, it's just contoured differently now but still appears masculine. Sorry, I truly don't mean to white knight; as an androgynous person myself it's a bit of an annoyance when people think you're trying to be mis-identified as the opposite sex when really you're just buying/wearing/doing whatever feels right for you, masculine or feminine.
I feel like perhaps she did finally get some work done? Her unedited face actually looks youthful and her skin looks hydrated/not very much harsh lines. I bet after that video game battle she did and seeing how awful, disheveled, cracked, and old she looked in that video, she went ahead and caved in and shelled out the money for some fillers. Also, her lips aren't over lined to hell and back which is pleasant to see!
The new "secret door in my house" video had such a clickbaity title (only to of course be a quick peek at some piping and nothing more ) She might as well have put "Shopping with Bii" as the title because that would've been more truthful about the vlog content, and honestly more click-worthy/interesting to me. When her outfit was complete with the cap on, she pulled it all together quite well, but for the most part I felt the sweater was too Halloweeny for January, and made her look extremely boxy. +Her cringe-worthy acting & pretend-spying at the start of the vlog in the shower made me feel very uncomfy. She should honestly stop trying to push a certain personality when it is clear it's not naturally hers?? Also, I know the sunglasses-inside thing has already been discussed, but I wonder how Bii and Tay's other friends feel when they're indoors in public (especially even after the sun sets) and Tay continues to wear her shades. It's honestly one of my biggest pet peeves, and if any of my friends wear shades indoors alongside me I feel self-conscious, like other people might think we're full of ourselves or snobbish.
I'm actually disgusted at all the stans in her comment section insisting that NeoNazis "aren't really a commonly known thing," and also lying on behalf of Taylor and telling people she's 19 or 20, when we all know 88 is her birth year. Also yes, NeoNazis are commonly known, widely feared, and actually referenced in a lot of media to this day. Even if for some reason she hadn't heard of it prior (isn't she like THIRTY??? Like yes, you've heard it before Taylor!) 'neo' means new and Nazi's pretty self-explanatory. If she's been 'bombarded' with all these comments about the number all along, she should've been able to put two-and-two together by now without even the help of Google. --- On a separate note but still regarding her videos, does anyone else find it awfully convenient the times her camera blurs? I've only taken a few photography courses so I'm no lense expert, but it's weird how 1) when it does get blurry it does it in the still-visible sort of way, where it looks like a blur filter as opposed to an actual camera going crazy & not being able to focus, and 2) it always happens at the more opportune times, like when she's first woken up or when she's in bad lighting or when she's running? A camera of that quality shouldn't be that blur-sensitive in my opinion?? And why does it only blur when she's doing things that people typically don't look their best in? *takes off Tay conspiracy theory hat*
Omg I totally get what you mean, as a child when you would press the Barbie's head in and her eyes would stretch much bigger and bug-eyed while her nose would be pinched/scrunched in! Hahaha. Very Kooter-esque. So, like, I suck at having the ability to point out bad editing. The shakiness in her legs in that video was due to poor/wonky editing, right? Or was she really shaking?
So she follows nobody because she anticipates fall-outs, unfollowings, and/or fights with her friends? That seems like an even worse excuse??? In any case, most times I've seen this happen, the person in question simply ignores speculations/questions from fans~ it isn't that hard. Going directly to your point, take Kiki and Dakota for instance, both with still fairly large followings on Instagram. Kiki only follows Dakota (and at the time Koots was only following like 10 people) so it was pretty obvious (to us) when they unfollowed each other for those few weeks. Still, neither of them were 'bombarded' on social media with questions asking why, or stirring up drama (in fact I only saw it mentioned once here on PULL), and if they did they simply ignored it. Now they follow one another again as if nothing happened. I really don't think that would be a foresight that Taylor considers, I think she's just still the fame-addicted person she's always been and she wants to make it very obvious that dis kawaii kween/insta baddie doesn't need to follow anyone back.
Well let's not forget that pesky police report that proved Kota's really, what, 23/24 now? Girrrl she wishes she were 21 again, and it shows. As for the deep laugh lines, I think they go hand-in-hand with those yellow teeth~ she's been smoking since she was like 13 or 14, no? (I mean according to what old MySpace photos would have us believe) The saddest thing to me about her extreme "4-yrs-old-forever" shooping is that what little legacy she'll ever leave behind will be a complete lie~ family members, friends, media looking back on her photos and profiles will rarely have an idea who they're looking at because everything she personally released or posted was a blatant lie. She'll have lived her 'fame' or pseudo-famous life as a total stranger, really.
That's my point exactly~ any 'normal person' would feel taken aback and question the friendship when not followed by someone that you see, speak to, and interact with on a regular basis irl (and someone that you yourself are following on social media!) Taylor has the most insta followers than all of the aforementioned girls, so not only would it seem proper and down-to-earth to follow at least a few of her friends back, it would probably expose them to a wider audience and get their YT channels, or at least Instagram profiles, more recognition (unless she does have some private acc with which she follows them, still begging the question 'why?' And 'why keep it so undercover?') This following no-one scenario really shows how obsessed Tay still is about wanting to be perceived as popular, perfect, and most of all 'famous.'
I don't know if I'm the only one, but regarding her social media like Instagram, it really annoys me that she follows no one. That, to me, has always been a tell-tale sign of someone a) not having any real friends, or b) putting their own 'reputation' above their friendships. Wanting to look soooo popular that you don't feel the need to follow anyone. That, to me, signifies how little Taylor truly has grown. I mean you don't need to follow every Tom, Dick, and Nancy but liiiike, not even following Sharla or Mimei or Kim?? It just looks so blatantly childish/snobbish to me, and it's the reason I know she is still not truly anywhere near as humble as she makes it seem.
