Camila’s statement is a clear demonstration on how the music industry
works and how they treat most of their artists like shit. Then we have that leaked audio
of Lauren literally saying, “They make decisions on regular basis, to fuck us
over, to make us literal slaves, like, literally slaves, Ally. We’re doing
labor every day and we see nothing.”
This is not okay.
It’s not okay to treat a band of 19-23 year olds like robots made to make them
money. It’s not okay to make them sign a contract and keep them as slaves of
the industry. If you ask me, I say this is why Camila left the band; it was not
because she didn’t get along with the other girls – we know this is not the
case, it was not because of the amount of hate she was getting – she dealt with
it since I Know What You Did Last Summer came out. She decided to quit as soon
as her contract inspired because their label and management team only sees them
as their money maker. They don’t care about the band, let alone about the fans and they don’t care about their health, even though we all know Camila and Lauren suffer
from terrible anxiety. But as long as they get their money, everything else
is simply irrelevant.
Camila didn’t even
know they were going to publish that note today. She was indeed planning on
leaving but she said herself this was not how she had planned. Can you imagine
how she’s feeling after their management made the whole world think she let the
girls know she was leaving through her “representatives”, as if she didn’t care about the band, as if she didn’t
spend the whole tour talking to the other four about it? She would never make
that decision alone – she would never let her bandmates know she was leaving
I think it’s
understatement to say that Maverick fucked up. They literally dropped a bomb on
us and on Camila. She didn’t know last night’s Jingle Ball was her last
concert as a official member, that’s why she had that big beautiful unbothered smile on her face. She didn’t know that was her last
time performing with the girls, and you can imagine how heartbreaking that was
to her. She changed her twitter layout to black and white pictures after
releasing her statement, for fucks sake.
This situation is
not okay. I need my girls to stay away from that toxic management team.
