The question is; since everyone believes that billboard interview wasn't their real words, it was mgmt etc. How then is it explained that they also bash their own label. How's that allowed by management? These two things seem like oxymorons to me

Not at all actually, it’s pretty smart. See, to sell the new “Ot4″ image they need to make people believe that things are different than they were before. The fact is, Camila’s departure, plus the recording of Lauren crying, which is strategically mentioned in the interview, rose up a LOT of questions around the well being of the girls and whether or not they were happy at all being in the group. Fans all over were saying that they would unstan just so that the group could fail and break up so the girls could be “free”. 

Management understood very well that the image of the happy healthy girls was completely compromised. So for this new era, since the girls haven’t changed label or management, they need to make the fans believe that things have changed, that the girls have more control, are now happier and that all in all Camila’s departure was a good thing. The label couldn’t find any excuses for Lauren’s recording, so instead they have her say that it was just one of those days, and that now things are different. 

The label doesn’t give a shit about what the fandom thinks of it, they care about what the fandom thinks of the girls, and they know that if there’s even a tiny little chance that the girls aren’t happy, the fandom will go crazy and will want for the group to break up, sooner than intended that is, because 5H will definitely be over after 5H3.

Weekends are perfect for picking up some new graphic novels!

SURFSIDE GIRLS: The Secret of Danger Point

Things are getting weird in Surfside. Lately, Samantha’s best friend Jade explodes into fits of giggles whenever she sees a boy, and it’s throwing a wrench into the kick-back summer of surfing and hanging out that Sam had planned. But after swimming through a secret underwater cave, Sam starts to… see things. Like ghosts. And pirates. And maybe something even scarier! Can she and Jade get to the bottom of this mystery in time to save their town?

EDUCATION

A father and son go on a road trip to discover train station relics, a professor explains his intricate grading methods, and a pen-pal correspondence gets more suggestive and dangerous. These are all interconnected in John Hankiewicz’s Education through reveries, memories, and nostalgic abstraction to tell a story that only the medium of comics could do justice. In this experimental and rewarding graphic novel, chronology and permanence are in flux while surreal illusions weave in and out of lucid states, remarkably held together by Hankiewicz’s confident, clean line and crosshatchings. Much like Here by Richard McGuire, Education is a time-fracture stream of consciousness told by a veteran cartoonist in his poetic prime.
