Brandy posted an interesting blog on Vibe.com (2.0) about bloggers and the blog hate she receives on the regular. Apparently Brandy doesn’t feel like there’s a fair balance because she claims bloggers hide behind their words.
People think that you being strong doesn’t mean things don’t hurt your feelings. That’s not what being strong means. I’m a very strong person, but some of those things that people say about me on blogs make me cry. I don’t like it. And what’s so frustrating is that I don’t get a chance to retaliate. Because y’all are not posting y’all pictures on the blogs. I can’t respond and I can’t be negative back because that’s just not me.
But sometimes some of the things that people say about me and my best friends and people that I care about, like my brother and Kelly Rowland, I want to go in on those people, but I can’t. But that stuff hurts. It really hurts. Sometimes we don’t read the comments because of what we’ve seen people say in the past about us. Okay, you don’t like my shoes, you don’t like my outfit, cool, but the rest of it, like bringing up the car accident?
People just go too far. Way too far. But people are going to be who they are. As long as I’m not like that, and even if I wasn’t me and I was tweeting about another celebrity, I would never say anything bad about somebody like that. I’m glad that I’m that type of a person.
If I was running the site, I wouldn’t post a bad picture of another person. I just wouldn’t do that. All to make money. For what reason? There are other ways that you can make money. Why do you have to do that at the expense of somebody else? And then the hard part about it is you take a picture of me, I don’t get a piece of that at all. It’s just weird. I just think people should have respect. We have feelings.
First off I wish Brandy would learn to develop thicker skin. The fact of the matter is people don’t like people. People talk about people. Nothing has changed people from being people. Blogging only allows for people to air out their gripes against people in a public forum.
Is it often times mean, yes. Should you take it personal? Absolutely not! What Brandy and other celebrities fail to understand is that blogging, for the most part, isn’t personal. It’s opinion based satire that the world has embraced. The people who comment viciously about them aren’t talking about public figures in a personal matter. We don’t know you how could we?
People call “Gyant” everything but the child of God. And nothing anybody says about me could hurt me because I understand what it is. Plus, there are only a small circle of people who know the real Gyant. So if you don’t know me how could I allow you to hurt my feelings?
But since Brandy feels like we all hide behind our blogs, much like some say her forehead hides behind those god awful lace front’s [could the aforementioned be the center of her gripe?] I decide to post a picture of myself in hopes it mends the bridges between bloggers and stars.
Although I must admit that my gripe with Brandy is kind of personal every since she came to ATL and dissed all online media when she was promoting her last album, which i loved and wanted to help support.
And dont even get me started on Ray-J.
