my job as a fan tbh

Welcome to the world of PR

So, I wanted to do this post because I know there’s a lot of fans who tend to be like “oh PR isn’t real it doesn’t happen” and that’s kinda naive of them. I’m gonna be kinda vague about my job because I need to protect my identity and who I work for… BUT I do work with a company that does deal with PR. I don’t do the stunts, my job is pretty much office work, but of course I witness shit go down. I won’t be making my blog about this because, tbh, this is my escape from the real world and I like being anon. But since I’ve seen a lot of people trying to foolishly deny that PR happens - especially with acts of today - I want to point out to you some PR stunts that have happened right before your very eyes and you may not have even known. I’m not asking you to believe me, you make your decision. I’m just letting you know what I know and maybe shed a little light.

Fandoms such as the 5SOSFam, Directioners, Harmonizers, Beliebers and Selenators can sometimes (but not all of them or all the time) be in denial of PR. So, I’m just gonna mention some PR stunts that have happened. I may link some sources for you or just let you Google it, I’m not gonna put too much work into this because… well I kinda have other shit to do lol but hopefully you’ll get the idea from here and if you want to dig deeper, then this is your starting point. 

Before I list the PR stunts I am aware of, I wanna say that celebs normally hate PR stunts. 9/10 times they wanna just do their job that they signed up for (singing, acting, whatever) and interact with fans. But to be able to sell and promote, they need to be in the media’s eye and it’s the dirty bit of the job nobody likes to do. I mean, glorifying a life that isn’t really yours? Yeah, it sucks, but the way the world works, your management and Public Relations team need to do what they can and if you wanna be famous, you gotta comply.

What is the purpose of PR? 

Okay, so there’s lots of areas for PR, but the purpose of PR stunts (fake relationships, fake friendships, fake feuds, etc.) are mainly for entertainment purposes and for the media to feed off. It’s a story that tabloids can write about, teen mags can swoon over,etc. It promotes said celebrity and their work without even having to mention it. For example, maybe Michael Clifford from 5 Seconds of Summer is in a PR relationship. And maybe the PR stunts happen around the time that something is coming up for the band. A clear example is right now, his relationship is getting attention on socials and media outlets are now covering that (such as MTV putting them in their Valentine’s Snapchat Story). It gets you subconsciously thinking about them all the time. And oh, what are 5SOS doing right now? Well 1. they are in the studio with a single on the horizon (wait for it…) and 2. have a festival tour? Hmm. Anyway, I’m not going to get into Mystal because that’s another story, but check out @exposing-the-fakes for more info on that. She’s friends with 5SOS and has a lot of tea which she spills and sooner rather than later it comes true. 

A list of PR stunts

Here is a list of PR stunts. I don’t have time to go into detail, but you can Google it and something will more than likely come up. Also, I do not claim to work with any of these stunts. I will not mention stunts I have any connections with because TECHNICALLY I just tend to general office shit but I work for a company who do this kind of shit. 

  • Taylor Swift’s Squad (great article here)
  • Jelena (Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez)
  • Haylor (Harry Styles and Taylor Swift) 
  • Beyoncé and Jay Z split rumours (started by PR)
  • Selena and The Weeknd (another article)
  • Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson 
  • Kim Kardashian’s sex tape (leaked by PR) 
  • Bella Thorne and Tyler Posey / Charlie Puth (read here)
  • Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens (Zanessa)
  • Zigi (Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid) AND Gigi’s threat to contact Perrie (read here)
  • Hendall (Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner) 
  • Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes (Read here)
  • Michael Clifford and Crystal Lauderdale 
  • Calum Hood and Nia Lovelis 
  • Selena Gomez and Niall Horan 
  • 5 Seconds of Summer and Hey Violet’s friendship
  • Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
  • Niall Horan and Ellie Goulding

Of course, there are so many more than that, these are just some prime examples. There are other kind of PR stunts which aren’t fake, they’re just weird shit that happens such as the Gaga meat dress, Justin Timberlake’s Cry Me A River, Britney and Madonna’s kiss, Janet Jackson’s nip slip, the list goes on. 

I used @exposingsmg for most of my sources because they explain things in a way that’s pretty easy for anyone to understand and it’s all quite tightwrapped, meaning everything you need to know is in the posts. They are a great blog to get reading, but if you want to find other sources, you just need to do your research. A lot of people in the media enjoy reading their posts because most of us know it’s true and they do a great job in summaries. 

So, yeah, that’s a little insight for you. I don’t intend on posting anymore and the sole reason I shared this with you is because a lot of people just try and deny the fact that it exists. PR stunts exist, most of Hollywood is a PR stunt. Don’t believe it all. More often than not the celebrity hates doing it. But don’t comment on their socials saying it’s PR because 1. some companies will get your account suspended or delete your comments/mark you for spam 2. sometimes it isn’t PR 3. they know if it’s PR or not and don’t need you going “THIS IS PR OVER HERE!!!” just let it happen and discuss it elsewhere like a blog, forum, or whatever the fuck. Just let them do their job. 

I’m outta here. Believe what you want. Not causing drama, just explaining. Don’t ask me to explain each PR stunt because I do not have the full details to hand but you can find it. I’m not able to confirm or deny anything else, I don’t want to cause drama, add fuel to the fire or make my blog an “expose” account. Just merely letting you use the info I can give you. And don’t assume that PR doesn’t happen because it does lol. 

Honestly people can say I’m ‘Pathetic’ for being so emotional that my favourite show is ending.

But tbh. It’s not just the fact that is was my favourite show.

It’s the fact that it’s what started me drawing; it made me the person who I am… It inspired me to create characters, to create stories in my drawings. It gave me hundreds of fans who made me smile every day, who writes fanfictions about this things I draw, who have become such a big part of my life.

Without this show I would have never started drawing, I would have never gotten these jobs I have now and just the idea that’s ending in just a year is just so sad to me.

Call me pathetic. If you’d like. But this small little fandom and tv show was such a huge impact on me; and I’m going to miss it so much.

#GiveLanceACubanName

when i say that i - as a latinx - am against vld lance having the last name mcclain and that i want him to have an appropriately cuban name, i usually get racist white people telling em to shut up and/or other latinx people jumping on me saying “well my last name sounds white but i’m still latinx!”

of course you are. you can’t choose your last name after all. and your identity is valid regardless of a name you didn’t ask for.

but lance isn’t a real person. the creators CAN choose his last name. they have that kind of power. and the name “mcclain” comes from previous WHITE versions of lance. to have them stick with it would be a very bad move, both for writing and for representation. for representation, it would be them making a conscious decision to have him appear/sound more white/westernized. for writing, it would be a lazy cop out, considering they’ve already made the decisions to change shiro’s name and ethnicity.

for those who don’t know, here’s a breakdown. 80′s voltron was an anime from japan. all the characters had japanese names, regardless of what in their ethnicity was. then came the english dub and - as was very common in older dubs (remember jounouchi from yugioh being called “joey” cause i sure do) - they were given westernized names. 

80′s shirogane takashi became sven holgersson, because he was norwegian. same for 80′s lance. kurogane isamu became lance charles mcclain, because he wasn’t given an official nationality (that i remember) so they made him white (as opposed to japanese…). this name stuck because he is…very obviously White™ in other versions of voltron.

now that vld shiro is japanese, they changed it from sven (a norwegian name) to shiro (a japanese name). so vld shiro’s name is actually a #throwback as well as proper for his nationality. makes sense, right? so why are people that want the same for vld lance being thrown under the bus? why are we suddenly the bad guys?

latinx characters are all too often handed the short end of the stick, and made to seem bad/uncivilized/uneducated if they haven’t assimilated into western and/or american culture. why? cause that’s how people view latinx people irl. we’re sick of it tbh.

don’t let latinx representation be silent. don’t make it our job to have to clarify he is latinx. don’t let it be something that can simply be ignored if people think of him as “that white dude with a tan” because his name sounds white.

give proper representation.

give lance a cuban name.

My review of BatB (2017): part two

WARNING! Spoilers ahead!


Here are a few other changes I didn’t like:


1. The prologue was a complete MESS. How could they screw this up?? The animated film did it perfectly, so why not keep that the same? You don’t appreciate the beginning - the “once upon a time” bits - because there’s just too much going on.


2. The film is too fast paced. The story doesn’t move naturally like the animated version did. Everything here happens so fast … and before you know it something else is happening on screen that I almost forget what happened in the previous scene. It’s like they wanted to jam as much as possible into this “remake”. I felt very overwhelmed tbh.


3. I’ve already talked about how underwhelming Belle’s costumes are here (all thanks to Emma Watson), but I honestly wasn’t a big fan of most of the other costumes either. Nothing really stood out enough for me to remember later on. Same with most of the set designs. I think it’s because I don’t like the color palette of the film. Everything was either really bland and boring or it was just too over the top and tacky (too much gold/beige) for my liking. Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette did a great job in the costumes and set designs department. I would have wanted to see BatB do the Rococo era that way instead. With more pastels and bright colors. There are some exceptions though - I liked Gaston’s clothes, the prince’s/beast’s formal wardrobe were great. Audra and Gugu had very nice costumes too, but we don’t see enough of them to enjoy the glamour. Some parts of the castle were beautiful, but I also think I’ve seen better (example: La Belle et La Bete).


4. The CGI is a kinda … too much. It’s not very pleasant to look and there’s A LOT OF IT. The character designs for everyone under the spell are bad imo. The castle staff didn’t translate well from animation to live-action. And I don’t like the Beast’s design either … he looks too human-like to me. He needed to be more scary looking, more intimidating.


5. Was it really necessary to make the story about Belle’s mother so tragic? I mean, REALLY?? Also, I felt very little warmth between Belle and her father. I didn’t feel like there was a genuine bond between them.


6. I know this is gonna sound mean, but I liked the Beast more when he was illiterate. In this version he comes across somewhat pretentious to me. I didn’t like how judgmental he became when Belle told him her favorite book was Romeo & Juliet. I hated the way they handled the library scene here. It wasn’t nearly as cute or sweet as the animated film did it.


I’ve already talked about Emma’s singing (and how unimpressive it is), but I have to admit everyone else sang well enough. Audra is fabulous, of course. Both Luke Evans and Dan Stevens did a good job with their songs (especially Luke). I still prefer Angela Lansbury over Emma Thompson, though. I still think they should have cast proper singers in all the roles.


Other people have complained this movie isn’t a remake, but is actually more of a reenactment. And I agree. Cinderella (2015) did stay true to the 1950 animated film - it had the same charm and essence of the original - but it also expanded on the story/characters and made a few changes that refreshed it for audiences. The BatB is almost a shot-by-shot kind of remake … which seemed like a missed opportunity imo. I understand that they probably felt pressure to stay faithful to the animated classic, but this went too far. Where the 1991 BatB was romantic, exciting and entertaining, this new version just falls flat by comparison.

bananas-are-berries  asked:

am I the only one who was genuinely disgusted with the lice almost sex scene bc all I could think about how this isn't the Jughead Archie fans grew up with this show just did him so dirtyyy (I'm only sticking around for Cheryl tbh)

You’re not the only one bud, I skipped it, I closed the app ok my phone and did something else for a few minutes because I genuinely couldn’t watch. I grew up reading Archie comics from the grocery store and when I got older I started collecting old Archie comics I found from antique stores. Jughead has always been one of my favorite comic book characters and they really did a poor job of bringing him to the television screen

Not that I totally agree with that rude/bitchy anon about drinking, but as a grown ass woman who has partied hard in her early and late 20s, *mom voice activated* please be safe! And a lot of Undertale fans look up to you and who might be underage/impressionable and YES ppl can make their own choices but just be safe. There was a girl in my city this past weekend 'getting prepped for the long weekend' and with friends (she knew since prek) left her and she got quite hurt.

! Thanks ! ♥

i really dont drink that much….. but yaknow after a long week of janitoring, which is not exactly what i planned to be doing at this point in my life, its pretty great to have a drink or two and just chill :)) but yeah, sorry.

bc i’ve seen ppl give topaz and aquamarine shit for their designs

tbh i think the new gems are supposed to look weird and make ppl uncomfy, and theyre doing a damn good job at it!!! :D 

now, i’m not telling you that you can’t dislike their designs. its all up to personal preference. i’m just tired of the people saying that the crewniverse are doing a bad job, just bc the stuff they’re making doesn’t fit the fans’s personal preferences.  

anyways, just my 2 cents. i hope i dont offend anybody

Jacksepticeye

I’ve been working on this for the past week and actually so proud of it :’) This may not be the most viewed popular series of games @therealjacksepticeye has done but in my opinion the games I loved watching him play.

I doubt Jack will see this but if you do, I really love your work! It’s helped me cope through my bad times and made me laugh when I thought I couldn’t. Your love for your work and your fans and positivity inspires me to keep going and hopefully I can meet you one day! It’s just a goal tbh… Keep up the good work Jack, thank you for being you!

anonymous asked:

Tbh I feel like Shawn is under an extra amount of stress/pressure lately? It seems like people/fans/etc. have been a bit inconsiderate and he's probably so overworked and tired. People keep mobbing him and touching/kissing him more than I'm sure he'd like them to and I just hope things slow down for him. I get it's a part of the job (in a way) but he's only human and in my opinions he deserves more space and respect

I agree… he loves his job so much and honestly I feel really bad for him… first a song leaking now being mobbed. Can us as his fans just give the poor lad a break? We are supposed to support him not put him under more stress…

anonymous asked:

Your interest in niki montage surprised me. Is there anything special that piqued your interest? Her music or her outfits? Maybe her personality? I'm genuinely curious

she’s nice but still outspoken. she’s a rly strong woman but is also rly cute and bubbly. she kinda shows that you can be tough but still feminine i guess and it’s sth close to my heart. in general she’s a rly good role model (not that i need one but if im thinking about young ppl looking up to a famous person, she’s a good pick)

i also like some of her songs and think she’s genuinely a rly good rapper

idk she just seems like a good person

anonymous asked:

Why you call everybody ya bro but be sucking them on the low 🤔🙄 tbh your dick not big at all and you look like a lil ass bug 🐜 . Please humble yourself. You wanna be known so bad that you swinging from everybody nuts to get there.

Lmao 💀 I don’t let anonymous post bother me for one, you’re probably fat, black, and uncomfortable…. your mom should’ve swallowed you and you’re just upset because you aren’t on the winning team 🤷🏽‍♂️ not my fault sweetheart. Now continue doing your job of being a good fan 😘 daddy loves you 💪🏾

Some news...

… well basically I just wanted to apologize for the lack of art !! Life happened, and lots of things got in the way ! I’ve been overwhelmed with school since september and didn’t have much time to draw.
This is the reason why I won’t be doing anything for the 1k followers eventually ! Sorry about that, I wanted to organize something nice with prizes and everything, but I don’t want to rush any drawing, sooo … looking forward to the next stage ?

I’m afraid I also won’t be able to get through all of your Sweet Moments requests, though I’ll try to draw as many of them as possible !! I’m filled with determination and positivity.


Now, real news :

As some of you might’ve noticed, I’m a voice actress. And just so you know, in France it’s quite rare to dub in animes. Most of them are dubbed in Belgium, so I never got to dub in an anime before.

And now you might’ve hear of this movie that tops at the japanese box-office… it’s called “Kimi no Na wa” (Your Name) and it’s the latest Makoto Shinkai’s Breaking Point.

(I mean serious business here m’kay?) 

And I… KIND OF GOT TO DUB THE MAIN ROLE ?? HAHAHAHH I CAN STILL HARDLY BELIEVE IT. I’M SO SORRY I JUST FELT LIKE SHARING THIS HERE, i MeAN THIS IS SO EXCITING ??? Here’s the cutiepie :

As soon as a french trailer releases, I’m sharing it here ~ Tbh I don’t want to annoy anyone with my life but I couldn’t not scream my delight here.

(I’m a fan of Makoto Shinkai’s work, and Mitsuha was such a pleasure to dub !! If you haven’t seen any of M. Shinkai’s movie before, then what are you doing ? Come on, you can still fix this. I’d recommend 5 centimeters per second, Journey to Agartha and The Garden of Words first ~)

And if you’re ever curious about voice acting, I’ll be happy to chat with you about this wonderful job !! Feel free to ask anything !


Ok i’m done screaming about my life now. Thank you for reading, I’ll try to update new drawings asap (expect some Amedot content) !! ❤

Reactions or HC. MC doing the catwalk for Victoria's Secret lingerie. All members plus Saeran and V.

//okay sO i am so dearly sorry for being so inactive and leaving so many requests in my inbox. I’m trying to find inspiration somewhere, but this last month has just been kinda filled and unmotivated for me. I’m hoping that soon, i’ll get out of this slump that i’m in currently, and get back to writing <3 also, i don’t watch too many fashion shows and i have never seen a VS one, so I looked up a few articles and clips from this year’s. I hope i got close to what you were looking for, and if i didn’t please tell me, because i really just want to make you guys happy with my writing

Yoosung:

  • He knows that if you were a LOLOL character, you’d be the most badass out of all of them
  • He is so in love with everything that you do and he can’t stop himself from letting his mind wonder like i would so let her dominate me tbh i live for sub yoosung
  • Some of the press gets his reaction on tape to seeing you and E! News finds it and everyone on social media starts flipping out and shipping you guys because they think he’s so cute

Zen:

  • He can’t help himself from clapping wildly and hollering because god damn are you slaying
  • When you get to the end of the runway, you give him this little glance/smirk and he just smiles so wide
  • He loves everything, especially how you act. He knows that you play a bit of a role when you’re on the runway, and you have this utter confidence and intimidation about you that is totally different from who you are at home.
  • he helps you perfect your walks and poses because your careers are both so similar so he knows a lot about the public eye and what they want, so he’s able to think of things for you to use that have a mix of who you are and what everyone else likes to really focus everyone’s attenton on you and your uniqueness

Jaehee:

  • she knows that sometimes you get frustrated because people only see you for your face and seductive looks and lingerie advertisements in magazines and not your actual personality or feelings
  • but she can’t help that you literally look so beautiful while doing your thing, and how you try to keep who you are in real life in the character you play on the runway.
  • sometimes she has these epiphanies like omfg i’m dating an Angel and she loves me back what a queen
  • you are known for standing out from other Angels because you aren’t always trying to be badass when you’re modeling. A lot of times, you like to look happy and genuine, and she loves how you give her these playful smiles if you spot her in the crowd

Jumin:

  • he’s utterly amazed at how you’re able to walk so smoothly like you’re on clouds while heaving those wings on your back

  • yOU KNOW THAT HE’S ALWAYS GOT SOMETHING UP HIS SLEEVE FOR WHEN YOU GUYS GET HOME LATER ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  • like jaehee, he can’t believe?? That you’re his?? That he’s in a relationship with such a beautiful m o d e l??

V:

  • he’s a photographer so of course he’s gonna have the best seat to get the best view
  • truly and honestly captures your utter outstanding beauty
  • keeps so many photos for himself
  • he loves how you walk in time with the music and you just are so fit for the shining lights, because that is where you belong
  • but he also loves the silly, loving, sweet side of you that he can enjoy to himself out of sight of anyone else

Saeran:

  • he has to sometimes restrain himself from punching people that hollar or whistle at you but he knows that you love him and you’d never even think of being with someone other than him, because let’s face it, deep down, he’s insecure and scared of losing you
  • he doesn’t really understand the whole notion of modeling when you guys are early on in your relationship because?? If everyone is supposed to be beautiful, then why is there so much competition
  • “honestly saeran, i’m not all that sure myself. I don’t like how everyone is meant to be going against each other, but i do know that i enjoy going up on the cat walk and being fierce and being the center of attention, it just gives me this odd confidence that i never had when i was younger”
  • he can’t deny that you look amazing either though
  • he does get v v jealous though, because you’re his and not anybody else’s

anonymous asked:

sorry i'm a bit out of it but what mess are u talking about?

Oh no don’t mind me anon, this is just me reacting at my dash for weeks now. A lot of drama, the few good things we get are counterbalanced by awful people, the permanent war between fans since Solo OT4 (lets be real, OT5) started, too much theories,  etc etc …sometimes I feel like I’m losing touch with the fandom really (totally paraphrasing you Erin!) and I’m wondering why I’m still there (the answer is probably because of my friends here, and also the fics)(and even fics are not that appealing to me right now).
