Let's be completely honest, though; K-Pop idols have no choice in the matter. Most of them are under a very strict contract with their label and they can be forced to get under the knife to keep their career afloat. Not only that, but the K-Pop industry is cut throat and if a group doesn't attract crowds, well... They are still under their contract, but unable to pay the debt back. Which is bad, because then they will be forced to take the escort route, or anything to pay the bills.
Plastic surgery in the K-Pop industry is a must these days. Even the idols with the good genes need to get some here and there to keep their popularity. It is a very superficial world. That's why, when it comes to people outside of the business world, I think it's stupid of them to get the ''Gangnam face''(because there are so many choices out there besides a Dorito jaw), but when it comes to idols, I'm simply sad. I see often backlash about their surgeries(like Park Bom), and it saddens me a lot. She was looking better before, yes, but I can understand how it came to that.
Honestly, same. He's babying Tana because she's ''so young and she didn't know what she was doing'', but like. She planned that damn event, it was her who decided to do this, nobody forced her hand when she made that video and announced it. If she didn't know what she was doing, she should have never opened her big mouth, plain and simple. Moreover, people paid for her mistakes in many ways; financially(the ticket price asides, there's people who paid 70$ for the VIP) and physically(coz it got to the point that some people got hospitalized).
I just can't get over the fact that Shane is trying to back her up. He's trying to make her seem like ''a poor innocent girl who got framed by a horrible company'' or something. Her fake tears made me choke because seriously? I don't even want to know if Shane thought it was genuine or not, I'm over him completely.
In the end; She made that event, she ''planned'' it, 19 years old or not, and it should follow her career until she shows she changed/matured. She gotta realize that her actions have consequences and that not everyone is going to excuse her mistakes(especially her mistakes that involve other people).
Random, but I was wondering; Did the fans got their money back?
You're right Shane, the Tanacon totally wasn't planned by sheer pettiness and spite towards Vidcon; It totally had ''good intentions'', and that's why it was, in your words, ''thrown in a month''. You're right, you're right, I mean, if I was planning a big event like this, for the sake of my fans, who paid for this shit, I totally would throw a big event in a month to make everyone ''happy''. I shouldn't plan everything a year ahead of time, a month is totally enough. Why hiring people to help me with this, and making sure everything ends up fine and not in total chaos, right? I can totally wind it.
Totally not making this for the money, nu-uh. The chaos and poor planning? It's to make everyone happy, obviously.
Anyway, I'm done with the sarcasm, but seriously Shane's tweet takes the cake. It made me so fired up. I'm sure Tana didn't plan to make a total fool out of herself, he's right about that at least, and she probably thought it was an amazing idea, but our girl is immature at best and cannot be responsible to save her life(and career loll). I didn't think it would go down like this(or as badly as this), I sincerely hoped for the event to work out, but in the end, it kinda makes sense that Tana Mongeau would screw it up that badly. She's pretty young and she probably didn't know what to do at all, so. Are they good excuses? Yes. Is it forgivable? Duh, yes. But did she make a terrible mistake and literally made her fans pay for crap? Yeah, and she should give their money back ASAP. Shane's ''would make it up to you somehow'' is right. Tana needs to act and not hide her head in the sand(Idk if it's what she planned to do, but).
His popularity may have gone up to his head a bit, yeah I follow him on some of his social media platforms, and he's a good cosplayer, there's no doubt about it, but he seems also to have quite the ego too. I didn't know about the fanart thing, so thanks. Seems a bit awkward and uncomfortable, for the artist. I wonder why he thought it was a drawing of his cosplay when it's obviously Gladios and he wasn't tagged or anything lol
From what I gathered(because he rambles soooo much urg), he's talking about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I"s
He's pronouncing it as ''Eyes'' so I had a hard time finding the title In Japanese it's pronounced ''Aizu'' from what the wikipedia page is saying, so Joey is like. Not pronouncing it right in both languages.
Anyway, I never read this one so I don't know if he's right or not about it being good.
I always thought about becoming a Youtuber, because it was kind of interesting and it was something that called to my creativity. I always wanted to be a reviewer of different things that I am passionate about(making several series) and keeping my identity a secret like for Cryaotic because I am honestly not fond of becoming internet ''famous''(or simply recognizable). I prefer living in a bubble and simply working on stuff that would interest others. However, the more Youtube is going downhill, the more it gets me depressed. It's not like I planned to make money out of it, or even a career, so I am not exactly bummed by that, but these days it's simply impossible to get nice viewers? It's drama after drama and everyone want to know who you are, where you coming from, and what you doing in life, and I am simply not made for that kind of attention. Ironic considering I want to make videos on Youtube, but I always wanted to be someone like Cryaotic or others in the same mindset that hides their identity behind a username and a voice. It's not like I have things to hide, but even at work, I prefer keeping it professional and avoid talking about myself.
Being a Youtuber was kind of an end goal? Something I would work on the sideways while having a fulltime job to pay for my living expenses. Something enjoyable, like a hobby. But now that Youtube is taking everyone's videos down and where you can get copyright strikes without doing anything wrong, I am just fed up and I feel like I lost the strength to get up in the morning. For me, working on content would have been something to look forward to.
I actually considered, a long time ago, about having my own show(where I live there's a lot of opportunities) but like I said previously I am not made for fame.
Sorry if it doesn't make sense or if it's all over the place.
Oh man, this guy is crazy. When the thread started, I thought the guy was simply a weird guy with no social understanding, who is way too awkward for his own good and I even considered subscribing to see the trainwreck(when his wife watched his videos about him whining against her). But now I just hope his whole channel will crash and burn Not only is he a bad boyfriend, but he's also a messed up guy. His views on women is revolting.
His wife need to leave his ass ASAP, I feel like he's only going to be a burden to her(she would be better off alone or returning to her family) and IF they have a child... I don't even want to think about it. This guy as a father ? Please, the naming thing is already big red flags. I don't know if the guy is violent, but I can totally see him using his child for views and ignore the kid completely for anything but that. His wife will have to deal with not only a child(which is a lot of responsibility and is time consuming) but also with her husband being completely useless.
Does he have a job outside Youtube, btw ? I'm not sure if it was mentionned.
Because if not, then I don't know how they would be able to pay for themselves and the baby with only one salary(as Youtube is way too unreliable).
I actually love his content and his humor, and I'm really disappointed by the path he's taking. I dislike Shane's content(nothing personal against the guy btw) and I subscribed to Bobby for specific content, so I really hope he won't try to become a clone to Shane in hope to get more views.
I also hope he won't lose his partner(the one that hold the camera) over his shenanigans, because that guy is partially why I started digging his stuff lmao. Their complicity is nice and I always prefer a channel with several writers.
When I think about it, didn't he say that he was pretty much fake in the past and that he was working to be more honest with his fanbase ? I think it was in the video regarding Youtuber apologies, where he speaks about faking emotions for the viewers.
