Taylor R - videos #2

But Taylor lived in HK for years before, why doesn't she have friends from back then? She's been back in HK for a long time this time, as well. She didn't have any friends for her 4 years in Japan either....just the de facto foreign vlogger "friends" that got together for content but no real, organically met Japanese girl friends. She never bothers to learn the language of the country she is in even though for most young people 2 years in a country is all you need to become fluent in the language if you don't constantly surround yourself with expats, but she hasn't had any real friends for her entire tenure on Youtube.

 

Well, now that I think about it she does have HK friends? I remember she used to mention them way back in the original HK video's and early Japan vlogs (and I think she did have a few video's with HK friends). Although maybe she doesn't keep in contact with them anymore because she never mentions them anymore.

But yeah I 100% agree with what you're saying about her needing to study the language.

Good analysis! I wholeheartedly agree. Plus, I know it has been mentioned here before, but I'd really love to watch shopping and cooking videos?? I honestly stopped watching her alltogether. Because it got SO boring. But maybe I'd consider starting again then. BUT PLEASE JUST MAKE YOUR VIDEOS 10-15 MINUTES LONG, thanks. 

I love Rachel and Jun, but sometimes their vlogs are almost 30 minutes long and it's just too much. And Taylor isn't interesting enough to carry that

i feel Taytay's creativity is drying out and fast. it seems like she doesn't go out of the house except when filming that makes her socialize less and get stuck in her bubble, hence why she can't get any new ideas.

I don't get the vibe that Natalie actually dislikes Taylor, she just seems to have that 2012 tumblr 'I hate everyone' personality haha

I mean... it's not even the socialising, I feel Taylor's the type of person to hyperfixate (which is completely fine, a lot of people do that) and just really want to be one thing in particular (dolly phase, Neistat vlogger phase, Kardashian phase).

The problem is that she doesn't really do whatever these things actually involve... like she never got professional at vlogging/ had an interesting life to vlog about, and she's not making videos about makeup/ products/ a glamorous lifestyle in her Kardashian phase either...

i mean their relationship were just about work at first... natalie seems like she's indifferent towards people that she doesn't have the same interests to and just remains civil towards taylor.

I loved Taylor back when she would shop around in Japan for vegan items and recipes because I was also living in Japan and wanted to check out those places. That's why I think this was her best time, the 2016-2017 era. Her videos albeit boring, were useful to a lot of people or interesting to those who might not be vegan or like to cook, or live in Japan, but like a combination of those things. 

All she relies now is her nonexistent personality. Not having a personality isn't inherently bad, but when she pretends to be this wise, super positive, super #girlpower wannabe, it comes out flat and disingenuous. That's why she always misses the mark. We've been shown her true personality many times; she's rather sarcastic, has a type of sailor humor, and can definitely be funny when she isn't reaching for it. I don't understand why she can't just be herself instead of this fake girly, #bossbitch wannabe, super enlightened persona.

Not that any of this matters lol, she'll do what she wants. I just thought I'd share some of the things I've thought about her.

her life is blown out of proportion that she uses her wannabe persona to compensate for the things she is messing. I don't know but i can assume that the marriage isn't working the way she wanted it to, so she is plastering a mask to hide whatever there is. what can be concluded imo is that she is isolated and even Natalie wouldn't have the  mind to accompany someone who talks 90% about pregnancy and 10% about confused thoughts. it would be tiring mentally at least.

Marriage probably isn't the super amazing dream she thought it would be.

Wait until she has a kid and the same thing happens. Yikes.

I don't know her and I know motherhood changes people. But I'm 100% certain that if she has a kid she will regret it, hate her life and have some kind of mental breakdown as a result. Maybe she'll divorce ew-san and make him keep the kid, that would be the easiest way out and that way they all get what they want.

 

I'm also not sure why people say she's obsessed with the Kardashians? I would never look at her videos and think "oh, she is trying to be a Kardashian". Might just be me, though.

I think if she had a likeable, charismatic husband willing to share the screen with her, she could make her married life work for her channel, but as it is....it's just so awkward. It's not enjoyable watching people who aren't happy.

They say she likes the Kardashians because she wears the Kylie lip kit and she talked about them in her Japan videos and she and Sharla copied a bunch of their IG pics when Shaylor was still a thing.

Exactly this, and also she does not shut up about them lol;  she mentioned how Kim uses green apples in her kitchens for contrast (so now she does the same thing and gets pissy with Tom about it), her instagram stories show her watching it with Sharla when they were in Japan, it's her whole thing.

She's replicating the Kylie style makeup a lot... she's overdrawing her lips and using Kylie cosmetics quite often.

She copied Kendall's makeup/ clothing in a handful of videos and just makes vids on the Kardashians occasionally (she hasn't done for a while though).
