Harry used to have so much support from people who aren't larries but it's really down to larrie harries and holo harries :( Holo harries hate larrie harries and 1d fans hate the holo harries. He has less and less support and the public in 2017 doesn't care about a celebrity with no social media presence or a relationship to make them a big success :( I'm sorry for being negative but it's hard to be happy..
I don’t know, man, i’m pretty happy. I choose joy. People hate other people? Let them. It must be pretty exhausting to carry around that kind of anger. I’ll be over here chilling with my iced coffee. I don’t know if it’s necessarily less support, but more out of sight out of mind. Once he actively starts doing promo- and like I mentioned to my earlier anon, a few fan pics and pappings, a few mentions of his album from people not connected to it, don’t count in my book as active promo. That’s getting his feet wet and slowly reintroducing himself to the world after being a giant hermit.
I guess i just try to think about it like a casual fan and I can only speak for myself, I know it’s just anecdotal and not based on anything substantial. I”m also aware that I might not be normal or average, but I don’t buy an album because of an artist’s social media presence. I just recently saw Tove Lo in concert and I have no idea if she even has twitter. All I know is, I really like her music. I only know what she looks like because her face is on her album cover. I know the vaguest outlines of her personal life as it relates to her music. I don’t care to know more, but I do care enough to buy and/or stream her music and buy concert tickets. I mean hell, even Ed Sheeran. Sure he’s got a solid social media presence, but I would have bought his album even if he didn’t. I find his tweets and instagrams charming, but it’s just background noise to me. Again, like I said, I know this isn’t solid evidence, but I feel like if his music is good and he’s not a bag of dicks (which we know he’s not), he’ll be fine.
Is social media helpful? Hell yeah it is, especially when it comes to BUILDING a career. Is it the be all end all of someone’s career? naaah. But even this worrying is wayyyyyy too early. How do we know he won’t start up again as it gets closer to being released? Why worry about things that might not even happen?
