So guys, I just want to share my take on the interview below. I’m intrigued by the whole thing. Here goes:
The interviewer asks Camila about changing the album title, and she replies with the following:
“I’m not ready to talk about why yet, but I will. I just always want my fans to be the first to know about those kind of things. So I’m gonna write like a letter, and stuff. But it’s complicated, but it’s gonna be great”
My mind went straight to Camila’s Facebook live, where she’s asked for her advice in regards to an LGBT relationship where the other half isn’t ready “to come out”. This whole snippet is full of hints, and it all sounds very personal to Camila. One would say she’s speaking from experience. However, what caught my attention was: “I think that she’ll be ready to do that, when she’s ready to do that”
Connecting the dots back to the Interview with Energy, the last time fans got a ‘letter’ was to announce her departure from the group. Now correct me if i’m wrong, but that was a pretty huge deal right? So Camila isn’t going to start writing letters, if there isn’t anything important she didn’t want to address. During the interview, the guy implied to C if she was at ‘The Loving’ stage of her album. Here are her replies:
“So desperate for love, and you know, be with somebody”
“I thought that being with somebody could make me happy”
“I always have a crush on somebody”
“Man, I wish that I could be with somebody”
“If it’s meant to be with somebody, it will happen”
These neutral pronouns in what seems like every single interview, are starting to formulate something. It happened in the Capital FM interview the other week, and it’s happening again. I’m not sure wether this is intentional on her behalf, but something is happening.
What is that important, it needs addressing in a letter?
What (other than sexuality) could be something she isn’t ready to talk about yet?
What is so complex, it needs to be explained to fans?
What exactly are “those kinds of things”?
Why has the album been pushed back to January in the first place?
I think somethingis going to come outvery soon. All we can do as fans, is show C plenty of love and support, regardless of what’s to come. Until she shares the letter, all we can do is speculate.
And as my lovely Nana Pat would say, “everything comes out in the wash”
I’ve had a few asks about why Ty and Lauren are PR. If you can’t
see it after this post, I’ll pay for your eyes testing. Just a heads up, i’ll apologise in advance for all the ‘tumblr:camrenexposed’ through out, it seems certain accounts on Twitter have a thing about copying my posts and not crediting me. Sorry guys!
With that being said…
First off let’s talk about Ty, known for his blatant
misogynistic attitudes towards women across the industry. That’s a title to be
proud of, not. When I hear grown men belittling, demeaning and degrading women
in the way he does, I always wonder
how they would feel if their female family members were being spoken about in
such a disrespectful manner. They’d find it incredibly inappropriate
right? So, what then gives these men the right to say those
things about someonelse’s mother/sister/daughter etc? The answer simply is, it
Then we’ve got Lauren. You literally couldn’t get more opposite
personalities if you tried. Lauren passionately campaigns for our fundamental
human rights, engaging in social and political activism whenever she can. She
generously donates thousands of dollars to fans with ill health and those who
need it most. She’s the first to defend herself and who she is,
confidently allowing fans to realise that no matter what, everything will be
okay. Regardless of who we are, what we look like tumblr:camrenexposed and who we love she teaches us to
embrace what makes us ‘different’ and be proud of who we are. My problem
is the negatives hit the headlines before all these incredible things she does
make them. She always seems to been labelled the “bitchy” one of
the group, but for what? For showing passion? For speaking out against the
fucked up political state of our global society? If that makes you a bitch,
sign me up.
So, for starters and most obviously; we’ve got the collaboration
between the two. As I predicted a few weeks back, this would be on Ty’s album and
released as a single. If I’m correct, there’s a video in the works for ‘In Your
Phone’. So statistically, this is the THIRD solo track Lauren has released
outside the group. ‘In Your Phone’, ‘Back to Me’ ‘Strangers’ AND we’ve got the Steve Aoki collab
dropping any time soon. Now let’s quickly bring Camila into this. Whist in the
group, Camila was granted special release of her tracks to mainstream media.
She released 2 tracks whilst in the group; ‘IKWYDLS’ and ‘Bad Things’. That’s
two individual projects, right? Now let’s look back at Lauren tumblr:camrenexposed In total, considering when the Aoki
collab is released, that’s FOUR solo project’s she’s been granted release.
Four. That’s double Camila’s. So you’re probably asking, why the fuck is this relevant?
Here’s why, After Camila’s departure, Lauren is golden girl. The label and
management are pushing her to the front, because as they unfairly did with
Camila, they’re seeing the most potential in Lauren as a solo artist. It makes
complete sense she’s the only one from the remaining members of the group
partnered up with another artist in the industry. This is when the PR comes to light.
Do you guys know how much it costs to keep relationship afloat between 2 well
known artists in the music industry? Thousands and thousands of dollars. Why?
Because they must make sure that
reputation isn’t tarnished or ruined in the process. So you’re probably asking
why invest money into a PR? Look how many fans Lauren is gaining on Ty’s behalf
and vice versa. It’s actually very very clever. I’ll get into that later on.
I’ll set you all a painful task, log on twitter go to Ty’s likes
and look at how many posts he has liked with icons of either pictures of Lauren
or the other 4 girls. It’s the merging
of the fanbases which is why the whole thing thiswas created in the first place. Lauren’s
voice is perfectly suited for R&B. She’s said countless times how much she “hates
cheesy pop” which unfortunately some of the groups music falls under. Her solo
work and ambition is to get as far away from that as possible. As much as we
dislike him, Ty has a lot of connections with major R&B artists across the industry.
His attitudes and behaviours are disgusting, but for some reason he’s well
regarded across that specific genre. The Label tumblr:camrenexposed is trying to disassociate Lauren
from her younger fans, and set her up with a more mature and developed fandom. Hence
pairing her up with someone like Ty. They’re doing the tumblr:camrenexposed opposite with Camila. Camila’s team
are encouraging that all age fan base and it’s well working. The thing with
Lauren is, only ‘Fifth Harmony’ fans KNOW who she is and what she stands for.
People outside our fan base don’t have a clue. Therefore, the media is buying and
promoting it, because they don’t see any wrong in Lauren, but we see her as
going against what she’s preached to us all for the past 5 years.
the two are blatantly staged. When one uploads a
picture, the other has to evidence fans that they are
together. So the Lauren update accounts, and the Tyren accounts then confirm
this to fans. It gets people talking and speculating. Now, by all means
correct me if I’m wrong, but if you’re the private person we all know that Lauren is, there’s no way she would be uploading videos/pictures of her
and her respectful partner all
overtumblr:camrenexposedsocial media. These pictures are HQ and the same picture is
being posted on both accounts, just hours apart. Where’s all the cute/candid
shit that real couples post on social media? There isn’t because it isn’t real.
the intimacy and romance in these pictures? They’re clearly faked. At his album
release party the other night, he had his back to her half the time and when
they interacted it was forced and cringey as fuck. There’s no “love” in their
eyes, just a contract.
Yes, Lauren is to blame for her social media presence and who
she’s presenting herself as lately BUT she’s doing it for a reason. We’ve got
to look at why this reason is, and that’s her unhappiness. From January, we’ve seen her behaviour tumblr:camrenexposed deteriorate to the point where we
are at now. Half of me thinks this has A LOT to do with Camila’s departure the
other thinks it’s Ty’s influence. What we can’t deny is the time Lauren and Ty
spend together for this PR to work. Now, whilst she’s in his company, she has
to fit in. Unfortunately, his circle is drug and alcohol fuelled. It’s no
secret she’s been using weed for a while, but there’s no doubt in my mind that
when she is around Ty and his circle, she’s taking something stronger. In half
the pictures, the pair take, they both look completely drugged up. But she’s
literally contractually bound to him, she’s giving in to the situation because
there’s nothing she can do. That’s
Another point to make, is why have these rumours speculated for
months, yet it’s taken the album release for Ty to “confirm” the two being
together? It fucking screams PR. He said himself in an interview, he was a private
person when it comes to his relationships. If that was the case, why has he
mentioned Lauren in tumblr:camrenexposedEVERY SINGLE interview since his album release? Why dos
Laurens activity on Instagram undertone her longing and sadness for someone,
yet he seems to think they’re “king and queen” of the music industry? It’s so
wrong that it’s laughable.
Also, remember when Ty tweeted out this:
And now he’s tweeting things like this:
His team are using Lauren in the process to try and clean up his image so he’s
more appealing to younger/more mainstream fans. In the process of Lauren losing
fans, she’s gaining more in the genre and route she wants to take her music
down. Because mainstream charts are where all the awards are, remember that. And also remember, awards are competition.
Laurens image is only really damaging within our small fandom,
the media see no difference in her. We know Lauren better than we all think. We’ve studied her behaviour and watched her grow for 5 years. We know this isn’t her. If
we can’t see this is PR, we’re letting her down and letting the label win. As a strategy, we’re gonna
have to ignore it because it’s only gonna get worse. We as fans have predicted
things between the two that have come true and been shown. Her mind is her strongest asset, yet it’s her weakest. Let’s not be a part of that weakness.
Most recently today, we’ve got Ty supporting one of Lauren’s close friends Shawn, who has just brought out his first single. Why didn’t he take a picture with Shawn when they’ve met on countless occasions at Label/Award show after parties and gigs? He’s never promoted him before so why now after Lauren posted about him?
A few more pointers:
Why hasn’t Ty helped promote Dinah’s individual song with French Montana and Daddy Yankee?
Why didn’t Ty promote Ally’s solo song with Lost Kings?
Why didn’t Ty promote any of Camila’s solo music, regardless of her leaving the group, he still did a song with her?
Why didn’t Ty promote Lauren’s interview with OUT magazine, where she addressed her sexuality?
Why is Ty’s acknowledgement of the group through Lauren and not directly to the girls?
Why didn’t Ty promote or support Lauren and Halsey’s ‘Strangers’ performance on GMA?
Final thought. If this was a genuine
relationship, do you really think we’d predict their next move?
