Not at all, and I wasn’t aware of how many people do until I started following exposing accounts on Instagram. It’s insane. Like I’ve said before, I’m not an expert on publicity stunts, but I have enough common sense to know that they don’t carry into celebrities private homes, vacations, etc..
Michael and Crystal have taken multiple trips together without posting about it at all until they got home, posted from the same house (I know this because fans analyze every single picture, zoom up on the background, and make everyone aware), been photographed holding hands when they didn’t know there were cameras around, spent the holidays together in Australia, and so much more that just couldn’t be fake, but people are like, “Management is forcing Michael into pretending to date Crystal!!! They’re really going to crazy extremes to make it look believable, aren’t they?!?! POOR MICHAEL!!! I bet he wishes his contract would end so he could be happy again!!! :’(”
They could literally get married, have 20 babies that look exactly like both of them, and grow old together but people would still try to convince themselves that it’s all fake. I don’t mean to be harsh, but I hope I’ve never sounded that delusional.
“Was it possible I had been hired not to enlarge children’s power, but to diminish it? That seemed crazy on the face of it, but slowly I began to realize that the bells and the confinement, the crazy sequences, the age segregation, the lack of privacy, the constant surveillance, and all the rest of the national curriculum of schooling were designed exactly as if someone had set out to prevent children from learning how to think and act, to coax them into addiction and dependent behavior."
