We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
IDK, I interpreted milestone as just a big event, not necessarily meant as “successful”? I have to see what her content is going to be like before I judge on whether she’s still the same old Mary. I agree though that she should’ve just remained anonymous and raised her child like most other mothers though.
Does it bother anyone else that she literally has this written in her bio?
Like, we get it, you won a fucking Emmy and you’re an “artist”. For comparison, here are other popular actresses’ bios — either they didn’t have a bio, or they had something fun or are promoting their current project.
She’s okay at dancing but she certainly doesn’t have the talent for it. There’s doing the moves and then actually dancing and it’s clear that she’s just doing the basic moves on time with no thought about the rhythm or beat and control over the speed and appearance of her movements. She also just never looks like she’s having any fun in this videos... like she’s so concerned with looking “good” that it ruins the vibe.
What gets me is that she hasn’t even gotten the help yet, but she’s STILL e-begging. If she was truly on the verge of suicide or having a crisis, what she should have done is check herself into the goddamn hospital. Then after it would be a lot less shameful to beg on IG to pay for hospital bills and whatnot (although judging by comments here, it seems like heathcare isn’t as ridiculous as it is in the US) — at least we know what it’s going to. Although knowing Bri, she would 100% let her debts go into default and just buy herself McD’s and another unnecessarily thotty item.
The thing is, you cannot make an adult stay in any sort of ED program if they do not want to. Eugenia was 5150’d, which means they sent her to a psychiatric hospital without her consent, but that only lasts 72 hours. AGAIN, ED recovery is incredibly difficult. It’s not just about getting back to a healthy BMI; being underweight is only a symptom of anorexia. She is no doubt suffering immensely from her ED thoughts, her depression associated with it (individuals with eating disorders have high comorbidity rates with MDD), and self-esteem issues as well. I think what Eugenia does or doesn’t do will always be scrutinized as either being an improvement from her disorder or a detriment and we can sit here arguing all day whether she’s better or not, but at the end of the day, recovery is not a straight line. Unfortunately, for someone like her, who has been in the clutches of her anorexia for so long, relapse is common — but that doesn’t mean she isn’t trying or that she’s a “liar”. I think that now that we know for sure that she has an ED (although she hasn’t said it outright, she was put into a mental health facility + extremely underweight. Occam’s Razor says ED) it’s best that we let her and her therapist/doctor deal with this. Discussing whether she is or isn’t getting better shouldn’t be a judgment on her character.
I think 2013/2014 Ari looked the best face-wise. She definitely had some work done (probably some lip filler and the brow lift) but she still looked cute and could ACTUALLY MOVE HER FACE. 2013/2014 Vs. 2018/2019 Ari. She looks like she's wearing a mask of her face, like someone's superimposed her 2014 face onto someone else's body.
Yiiiiiikes. Her face is also like at least 2 shades lighter than the rest of her body, lmao. So cringey because you can literally tell that she's looking at herself in the camera and making sure she doesn't reveal her massive ass face.
For me, Grimes lives on as the person she was from 2011-2015. She's best consumed when in the "edgy Tumblr teen" mindset, along with Purity Ring and Crystal Castles. Totally fair to not like her music, but I think the raw and unpolished quality of her music is what attracted people to her in the first place. If you listen to her earlier albums like Halfaxa and Geidi Princess, it's truly just noise and repetitive beats/sounds, her experimenting with music production. When she came out with Visions, it hit the sweet spot between melodies and sounds. Coupled with the fact that she doesn't really sing as much as she does just croon in a garbled sort of way, it created this sensual album that created "moods" rather than "songs". Art Angels is the first album that is actually a true "music" album, in terms of songwriting, production, and structure. It definitely alienated a lot of her previous fans that appreciated her out-of-box ear for music (me included). I mean, when she recorded and released Go (her song that she wrote for Rihanna that she rejected), people were upset with her because it was such a "pop" song, I guess. Again, I think at the end of the day, her music is not for everyone (my friend dislikes her high-pitched singing voice too) but I think it's unfair to say that her low production value is what makes her music unpalatable for some people.
She is a freakin' talented artist. Visions is an absolute masterpiece, I still listen to it and am sometimes in awe at the magical feeling the album can put me in. I saw her live after she released Art Angels and she was honestly really fun and sweet on stage, if a lil bit awkward. TBH I think a lot of what she says on the Internet isn't her trying to be a tryhard, I feel like she is genuinely... off? as a person? She's always been into weird, fringe things since she started producing and writing music, but now that it's "cool" to be into this shit, her weird genuineness on Twitter makes her seem extra cringey. I do agree though that since she started to associate herself with Elon Musk she started to go downhill.
You make a fair point but I think it’s difficult to ask a woman whose suffered with an ED for so long (and without help, I’m presuming) to have insight over her ongoing illness. Despite what “recovery warriors” say on IG/YouTube/etc., recovery is incredibly difficult and an ongoing process that is more than just eating. I think that it’s best to leave her be and just hopefully let her continue therapy, whatever that may be. I honestly think it’s an improvement anyways that she’s stopped making so many “body check” videos with her hauls.
Because it’s easier being the helpless victim than actually doing something about her shitty life. Bri knows that if she goes back to the US, people are going to actually see her for the leeching, untalented individual she is. Yes, she can still claim racism and unfair advantages, but a good chunk of the country would totally be accepting of a Black Latinx woman. But in Japan, she can blame it on external factors such as “people are racist and not giving me a chance!” or “i’m broke because I’m a foreigner living abroad!”. She can continue to use Japan as the scapegoat for her failures and just e-beg the whole time.
THANK. YOU. I know that there's a huge movement going against medicating for mental illness right now because people believe that everyone's getting over-medicated and being handed anti-depressants like candy, but let me tell you, if you are DIAGNOSED AS BIPOLAR you. need. to. take. your. goddamn. meds. Especially in Japan where mental illness is still stigmatized to hell and talk therapy isn't as common. I'm sure for her there's a language barrier as well. It's so frustrating to see her talk about her mental illness as a "chemical imbalance" and then say that she's self-medicating with yoga and fucking pole dancing. Yes, she fucking said that.
Bri, if pole dancing could cure your fucking mental illness, every single bipolar hoe out there would be gyrating against a pole right now. GET THE FUCK BACK ON YOUR MEDS.
