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.
It looks like a rented workspace. Not a place that she outright OWNS, and pays a mortgage on. Nevermind the equipment. I agree... I doubt she knows how to operate most of it. It honestly looks like a rented facility, and I wouldn't doubt her pawning it off as "her own".
Renting a studio will not change the quality of her content. Even if she hires a full production team to create a set, design a wardrobe, edit frames, and enhance the sound, you can't spin shit into gold. Her days of pulling a large audience based on her quirky self discovery story, are over. She's wrecked her brand... and I think she knows it. Excatly. Case in point: 5 years ago that "voice acting" video would have had a totally different reception: "She's coming so far!" "Good for her for trying!" "Keep up the dream, Venus!" But now? Too much has gone down, for the focus to be shifted off the bullshit. Anything other than the truth is seen for what it is... damage control, or a cover story.
If memory serves, I think film-version of her role is just a person in a bear suit. Maybe that's why they wanted her to voice act? To dub? (If so, jokes on them for attempting continuity.) So... she's the voice of a "teddy bear" in film...
but also "Student Council Member #2" in the flesh - on stage...
tbh, I'm not offended. But many people would be, and you'd think Venus would give a damn, based on the fact that she NEEDS people to support her social media career. Honest opinion: She was too shit faced to pretend to care! Hard to give a fuck when that liquor is on your lips!
Right? Like again... sure. Social-political stuff may be different in Japan... but is she really *that* under a rock? Is she really *that* unaware? Lmao! Like... she knows most of her audience is in the West, right? Just... holy crap. I can't decide - Is she monumentally ignorant? Or is she just plain arrogant?
Greg being surrounded by drama is so normal by now - I bet the big drama channels think it's old news.
Blaire White - is she considered "big"? - covered it briefly, a week ago:
Anyway, anything that relates to Onion boy to pedophilia, grooming, and abuse, is all white noise at this point. I bet the majority of the larger drama channels have yet to dig deep, simply thinking that their suggested videos are old.
It'd be surprising, at this point, if she follows through with anything. Anyone wanna place bets on her excuse this time? 5 bucks it's her poor internet connection. I'm actually glad she's not keeping up with her lofty schedule. I hope she's getting burnt out, and decides to step away from the spotlight all together. Only thing: I think she's addicted to it. It looks kinda like a love hate relationship. Loves the attention, hates the work.
right? it's hard to decide how "on board" she was before this fiasco occurred. like, did some rep contact her agent, and she was advised to do this for extra income? or what this really her literal dream: having a skincare line. (I kinda doubt the latter.) @sk2 is right though. The beauty industry is dependent on leeching off of everyones' vanity, money, and self esteem. Women, men, and kids.
She's gone back and forth with sharing her private life. She's refused to disclose in the past, and can refuse now. She decides to share her private life when she can gain validation, attention, and sympathy. She shares it for therapy too. These aren't good reasons to go public, imo. True. But on the same token, she's pandered in livestreams for $2.44. I don't think she believes she'll pay next months rent with 1 "My Divorce" video. But, she wouldn't do it at all, if she didn't think it wouldn't be productive in the long run. Jenna Marbles does that too. Along with dozens of other online personalities. It's not a coincidence that the long term, successful content creators, keep their dirt offline. Business wise, it's just a good idea. And, Venus wants to have 2 businesses now: social media and her company. That's double reason to protect her private life.
Tldr: Over-sharing with fans will never be good for Venus; financially or mentally. She needs to realise this, or she's gonna keep making the same mistakes.
