Me. I've heard Weinstein rumors for years and I'm not even in the industry. So I don't believe the people in the industry coming out and saying they had no idea.

It makes me sad because Quentin T. is one of those people who most likely knew and didn't care. But who am I kidding, he's probably the same way.

No. 208066

They've all but confirmed it, probably just waiting to announce it on the show. Khloe is pregnant too and with Kim having a surrogate that makes three of them popping out more spawn. The only thing that I kind of respect them for is not falling all over themselves to suck "Caitlyn's" dick just because he's a tranny now.

There's this video on youtube Men ruined by the Kardashians. You don't need to be a fan of them, but it's seriously not their fault that these grown ass men spend all the money they got from them on drugs etc.!

It always urged me the wrong they that tyga dated kylie while she was still a minor as well…

No. 208090

The reason why I was shocked is not because of her age (plenty of 20? year olds get pregnant, not that it's a good thing, but because of how common that is that has less of a shock-value) but because of how short her relationship with the guy she's expecting with is. AFAIK they were together a couple of months before she got pregnant which is insane.

What do you think about the Kevin Spacey causa?

No. 210477

Like Weinstein, Kevin Spacey is yet another person who has had multiple rumors and accusations floating around about him for years. Even I knew of them and I'm not directly in the industry. His statement was bizarre and complete bullshit in my opinion. He really tried to deflect by officially coming out as gay, and a lot of news outlets bought it. They ran with that as their story, not that he was being accused of being a fucking pedophile.

I doubt anything can be done about these accusations, but I hope Anthony Rapp can find some kind of closure by coming forward. Also I completely believe more people are going to be coming forward with stories about Spacey in the next week or so.

well with the age of celebrities you have to keep in mind a few things:
very seldomly photgraphs are not retouched. Skin moothening is only one of the things every magazine does.
red carpet action: make up, light, light, light and again retouching.
Being rich let's you usually age slower. Less stress, more resources , more spa days.
Minor plastic surgery: again skin treatments, tightenings, and so on and so on.
i dont think celebrities lie about their age, they rather try to hide it.

think of Ru Paul. I like her, but when she laughs nothing above her nose moves. it's just her mouth opening and her eyes closing. ridiculous if you ask me. but thanks to botox she looks way younger than she is.

No. 210590

I think you isread what i wrote: i did not say that a lot of celebrities look young - ots rather the opposite. And like you pointed out, they cam afford better skin care etc. so why are they still looking older? Maybe because they're lying about their age…

No. 210595

I'm on the fence about Kaia. Her face is not model material (she's pretty, just not that kind of pretty), but her body would be fit for runway imo. Her legs are so long! She definitely won the genetics lottery with them

Kendall is pretty, but also really basic for model standards and the lip injections sort of ruined her beauty.
Out of the nepotism bunch, the only one I think deserves her place as a model is Cara. She's actually unusual looking, too bad now she ditched modeling to be a mediocre actress and a subpar singer. Just why…

No. 210816

Probably due to her weight, and I don't mean that as a dig at her. I remember Lagerfield commenting on her weight gain/fluctuations and basically dropping her after booking her for everything (or maybe it was some other designer or brand? I might be fudging details).

Honestly, modeling is an extreme high risk low reward job, and I'm pretty sure she had a couple interviews talking about the toll it had on her mentally. Acting at least gives you some sort of leverage since you're moderately less disposable. Also, she's really going into singing…?

Anyway, I liked Cara, too. Shitty walk, but she was good in editorials and actually had some sort of personality.

No. 210858

She does not do anything for me. Her face is nothing special and in some editorials she looks like a mole. I'm not sure why. And her acting is bad. Cara comes from old money that's what gets me. Girl has everything and still had to have the media machine push her out there constantly. And wasn't she Weinsteined too? I hope she fades away

Kaia looks like she restricts her eating. Hopefully she will stop doing that and grow into her looks. I hope her mom doesn't prostitute her like KJ did with Ken.

No. 210859

No. 210917

1. It's hard to trust personal assistants to go on crack runs for you nowadays

2. It was Halloween time so their regular dealer was probably busy

3. Beiber and Selena are the naggiest cokeheads. Most celebs are since they have no concept of time/money and just get high all day, get bitchy when the supply runs dry

4. Theyre just desperate and stupid to get high lol

Yeah Selena doesn't have Lupus lol. It's just a front for her coke/alcohol addiction. At first it was severe anxiety then her mom's miscarriage then lupus finally stuck. I feel bad her friend was stupid enough to give her kidneys.

No. 210953

Tbh I think her friend was paid for a cover up story. She got tested and was immediately a perfect match right after Selena knew she needed a kidney? They probably bribed someone else for a kidney and paid her for a pity-party cover up story to not make it seem weird Selena got a kidney so fast.
That video is shit though. It doesn't printed jackshit. That they are cokeheads is just gossip.. idk.

No. 210982

She is a cokehead. Have you seen her last boyfriend? Druggie Abel? Her and demi are huge coke addicts. It's been leaked multiple times in the press. Most of your faves are drug addicts. I'm sorry you had to find out this way. That's just the Hollywood game.

Idk how to make you less gullible. But I hope you get woke soon lmao.

Bribed someone else for a kidney? And by that you mean… She got a black market kidney?

And now she snapped a pic of a bunch of snacks she is buying for a girls trip with a strategically placed box of tampons in view. Of course your average twitter user is retarded and easily confused so they took that obvious misdirection just like she wanted them to and are now questioning her pregnancy. Embarrassing

I don't like what's happening with Stranger Things kids. Everyone's like "they have to watch out for pervs!!" because of recent scandals, but do people realize how sexualized are the kids now? By the fans? By photographers? How they have to look and act adult? Shit, just compare them with young Harry Potter cast. Kids vs little adults. I don't know, you could say it's just clothes and some mature photoshoots for magazines, why you trippin, and I get it… But on the other hand I have this internal feeling of uneasiness, wrongness, like I can sense the source of it, the roots, and it's disgusting.

No. 211130

I only vaguely follow the Kardashians so I don't really get why they're ashamed she's pregnant? Obviously she's young and only just got into that relationship, but her situation is very different to most people's. She's got so much money that her lifestyle wouldn't have to change much if she had a kid. She could even use it to her advantage and seek business opportunities related to pregnancy/babies. I haven't seen anyone really criticising her either, most of the stuff I read is just like "wooow she's pregnant!"

Idk I just don't get it, the family are trashy as fuck anyway, they just get away with it because they've got money

No. 211132

I get that vibe as well. It's like the fans who are screaming about the pedophiles and sexualization in Hollywood are also the types who set young actors and actresses on super high pedestals which puts them under constant stress to overperform and always be perfect.

I don't see how that's any healthier. Then these child stars grow into twisted adolescents and all those fans turn their backs on them.

No. 211141


his ex gf was unreliable af, though. I mean, I bet it wasn't a very pretty breakup but she went from sobbing about losing him/how amazing their chemistry was/how she hopes to get back with him in the future to a total 180 about how manipulative and abusive he was and how she's going to counceling. She says that it's his initiative to break up, then she turns and says that they were gonna And she asked at first to not send asks about it/be respectful while she continuously talked about him and posted about him, and subposting them like "my last post wasn't for your eyes" etc.

She could have just said yeah we broke up, and case closed. But no, she decided not only to stir the pot but she put a goddamn soup blender in the pot. And when people asked like "well what did he do to you?" she got vitriolic like "oh yah okay lure me into a safe space so u can trick me into talking about private information!!!" like… girl that's WHAT YOU'VE BEEN DOING ALL THIS TIME

She was also apparently quite jealous/uncomfortable with female fans approaching him in the street. I can get how that can sour someone, but you have to be prepared for that, they are gonna have a memorable moment with him and maybe never see him again, you were his gf, you can't exactly compare the two. Let them live.

Look, I ain't saying that she's a liar, but goddamn she doesn't back her case up very well when she acted like that. Case to note: when you break up with your ex and you're not famous the radius of damage you can do is significantly smaller than when you're with a celebrity.

Does anyone else think she's gay? She seems to just have short flings with men, never a meaningful relationship, and many of her exes seem like theyre secretly gay themselves. I just get hella closeted gay vibes from her. I don't think she'd ever ever be open about it though

No. 215958

I always thought her persona was just that. Not sure about gay, but I always thought her "good girl" thing was a joke. According to Katy Perry, she's inferred she's the "Regina George" of the music industry and they don't get along. One of her most recent music videos was Taylor taking a stab at KP and her fans. I can go into deets if anyone wants. I read a lot of gossip rags and keep up on pop girls.

I also think she's conservative. If she is not, she tactfully hides this from her many country, conservative, and semi-ironic alt-right fans. She showed a picture of herself at a voting booth around the election, but absolutely did not say who she was voting for nor did she get behind any candidate openly.

No. 215966

The only thing I know about her is from talking to people in her hometown in PA.

Honestly, his death broke my heart into a million pieces.
Shinee was one of the first groups i stanned almost since the beginning of their career, and jonghyun was one of my favorite idols. He seemed to be truly a wonderful person and his death broke me.

I hope this is a wake up call for Korea, and everyone really, to take mental health more seriously. I mean, fuck, did nobody think to get him some serious help and lay him off the schedules after this interview? Or most of his songs?

> A few years ago, I was crying and whining at my mom and sister while I was really drunk. I asked my mom and my sister.. it wasn’t long after we’d moved. I asked them if they were happy. I got drunk and woke up my entire sleeping family, like some ahjussi. It had been my number one goal in life, you know, to make my mom and sister happy. They both woke up and told me they were happy. But I was so envious at the fact that they were able to reply that they were, indeed, happy. Because it wasn’t like that for me. I told them while sobbing: "I want to be happy too." Then I felt like I’d done my mom and sister wrong. But from then on, I started contemplating about happiness. For about six months, I pondered specifically over what I would need to do in order to become happy. I think that time of transformation has come. I think I need to become happy, now. I must become happy. I am going to be happy.

>"This guy was honestly one of the most genuine people in an industry built on illusions."

I think you mean YOU and SHINee fanss delusions. All you weirdo fans and your "muh precious baby" "my precious angel" "I love you and always will" "I will protect you!" are so obsessed with your perception of who he MIGHT be that you created a world where he could never live up to your expectations.

>"had I tried to reach out, maybe I could have helped"
Again with the delusional fans. You've idolized someone to a point where you think you honestly would've been enough to challenge the direction someone's mental illness was leading them.

If you all loved them so much, you'd stop feeding the industry that kills them from the inside out.

>I hope the rest of the members and coworkers/label-mates/friends get psychological help to deal with this tragedy.

Well, it's SK so they won't. The country that told him his depression was his fault, that shames you from taking medication, in an industry where you trade your soul for being famous.

Seriously, Kpop fans are some of the most obsessively deranged people. I didn't even follow that closely and I KNEW that he was depressed beyond repair. I wasn't surprised at all. He's been crying for help and then covering it up poorly for a long time. Maybe not projecting what sweet baby boo boo angel made me understand him better than most of his fans.

I get what you're saying and agree about the way SK deals with mental health issues, but the industry isn't really to blame in this case. Jonghyun had much, much more freedom (creative and otherwise) than most idols, he wasn't a struggling nugu. He loves writing and producing and was able to do plenty of it. It's like a knee jerk reaction for people only semi familiar with kpop to blame the industry for everything because muh slave contracts, muh robots who can't date publicly etc but he was one of the lucky ones. Obviously his depression ran deeper than just industry pressures.

Depression really is a beast and once it grabs a hold of you, it won't let go :( Ugh! I read his suicide note as well ;-; It was sooooo sad!

Omg thank you, I've only started getting interested in kpop few month ago with the bts craze and it weirded me out almost immediately. Thoses boys literally refer to their fans as their girlfriends? Wtf this is not only cringey it's creepy as hell on BOTH ends. And some of their fans believe 100 % that those beautiful rich and successful mans are still pure virgins angels at the prime age of 22, I even saw a thread once "do you think anyone in bts masturbate?" I've never seen anyone wonder that kind of shit for any other artist. I think it's a case where the girls are almost creepier than their male counterpart.
I dropped this interest really quickly.

Have you ever even heard of idol culture? Kpop fangirls are definitely fucked up, but they're nowhere near as bad as the guys who're into that shit

No. 218228


He's given answers several times over that allude to how deeply unsettled he is, his guilt, and his inability to come to terms with what I feel, is a pretty obvious "I don't want to be a famous idol anymore, but I have to for everyone else's sake" complex

His depression is what made fan girls obsess over protecting him, and they love to rattle on about how hard he is on himself, how hard he works, etc. That they're acting like the YEARS they've spent micro-analyzing every paparazzi photo, live event video, bts recording…every micro-interaction he has with his band and people around him. That they say they are in shock and denial, especially after TOP tried to off himself recently, is probably the largest red flag that all of these girls are obsessed with a projection of their feelings, and not a real person. This is their selfish excuse to garner sympathy. I have friends who have taken off DAYS from WORK to mourn his death because they're so "in shock" that the guy who is always "so hard on himself" and depressed finally had enough.

I find them equally destructive and creepy. The idol culture doesn't hide that they want to sex these children, or no one else can. Typically Gender dynamics though, Men are sexual, violent, and possessive at the worst and women are master manipulators who can destroy you from afar.

You're truly underestimating how batshit some of these girls are. I'm sure some folks here who are much more well-versed on Kpop than I am very clearly remember that incident with the girl who sent a note written in her own blood to one of the members of 2PM.

No. 218236

There's also Suho's sasaeng, Rion. She held up a sign while in the audience @ whatever event with something akin to "Rape Me Suho" on it. I had no idea he could get as pissed off as he did but I 100% understand him. So disgusting.

Then there was also that one male SNSD fan who tried to kidnap Taeyeon from the stage during a performance. What the actual fuck.

No. 218238

Yeah, but like I said, no where near as fucked up as the men are. I'd rather deal with an obsessed teenage girl than a literal pedophile any day. I haven't seen them doing stuff like this:

or attempted kidnapping like >>218236 mentioned

>I hope this is a wake up call for Korea, and everyone really, to take mental health more seriously.
It really did make me think twice about what kind of an industry I'm supporting here. Idols are treated like shit by the companies, their fans are fucking nuts and they have to practically live in a prison with no bars. Some fan could kidnap you or hurt you, there are cases of sasaengs straight out slapping or hitting an idol because "that's how they'll remember me forever". Confessing to depression might make your company drop you and contact others not to work with you because your declining mental health affects your performance. All of this combined with probably a very sensitive personality artists often possess must fuck you up completely.

I do hope his death would act as a wake-up call to the whole industry though. He's the first actually huge k-pop musician at the top of his fame to commit suicide so it must cause some sort of a shockwave. Shinee was an iconic group and introduced a lot of international fans to k-pop, so it's not like he was some has-been from years ago.

This really hits home for anyone who's been hiding their depression for years, including me. Made me teary-eyed.

This. Holy shit he had been planning this for a long time. And I don't think anyone could've been able to help him.

No. 218260

First of all, most kpop fans are literal teenagers. What were they supposed to do exactly? Even the older fans who knew things were wrong, we had trusted that his loved ones cared for him and helped him, because we can't. Literally all we can fucking do is buy his shit and go to shows. Sure, the idol industry attracts exactly these kinds of fans who will see what they want to see. They're not the ones who are responsible for his health. The responsibility was on his friends and family and doctor, who all fucked up royally. His dumb fucking friend who said she got his suicide letter weeks before he killed himself and was just "herp derp what should I do" and just told his family, who also knew he was suffering and did jack shit, as well as the friend who said he's been breaking down and falling asleep crying to him on the phone, the doctor who was like "yeah that just who you are so like get over it". Every single fucking cry for help was ignored by the people who were closest to him because they are all incompetent. He needed one person to tell him its ok to stop being "shinee's jonghyun", and no one did. I'm not shocked he killed himself - I'm shocked the people around him didn't give him the help he desperately needed. I AM fucking livid - at the society and culture that allowed this to happen and at the people who could actually help and didn't.

Also, people are allowed to be impacted by the death of a figure that was prominent in their life, shocking or not. Yes, even the delusional fans who buy into the fantasy.

Thank you for this post, anon. It's exactly how I feel. I'm not even a Shinee stan since I listen to them quite casually, but his suicide at 27 strikes a nerve because I'm the same age as he is and his feelings emitting from the final letter are identical to my thoughts during my depressive episodes. It's not as much of a "boohoo my oppa killed himself I am ruined!!!" but more of a "why the fuck did this industry and this society allow it to happen and the problem should be acknowledged" thing to me. And people downplaying mental health issues isn't even just a SK thing, I'm an eurofag and there's a huge social stigma associated with depression and seeking help is a huge strain on your already worn out self.

Thank you. Kpop fans are fucking insane, acting as if they are not a big part of the problem. It is a sick industry, supported by delusional teenagers.

That's exactly how I feel. I've been struggling with depression for so long, and I recognize that exact mental state from when I'm at my lowest and suicidal, but i'm here - which is why it angers me so much when people say it was inevitable. If it's inevitable we wouldn't have counselors, therapists, psychiatrists, suicide prevention programs or support groups for families of depressed people.

We might not have all the information, but we do have various accounts from friends and family who say they've known of his condition for months. I know this is hardly the politically correct thing to say but I honestly think a lot more could have been done to help him and it was a major oversight on their part. It might be a cultural thing, but the way they said they've handled him is misguided at best. From Jonghyun's suicide note, it's also clear the psychiatrist had failed at his job. I think Jonghyun's support system ultimately let him down.

Thank you for this. I’ve never quite been a SHINee stan but I’ve listened to them and really liked all the members. The assholes going “hurrdurr dis ur fault xDDD!!” taunting his fans who are genuinely devastated over his death can all go eat shit. His fans really couldn’t do much besides loving him, buying his stuff and attending shows. The people he reached out to who genuinely KNEW about his condition are the ones who failed him. SK itself is a shithole when it comes to stigmatizing mental illness, though, so them not handling it properly sadly isn’t too surprising.

No. 218470

I've been thinking about this ever since I heard his age. So, Jonghyun is a member of 27 Club now… I get sad just thinking about this.

To answer your question, isn't 27 just the milestone where it's like, if you're not as successful as you wished to be or still aren't happy despite your success, it's over for you and there's no hope it will ever get better. You could still be young enough to still not have a broader perspective of the world/your situation or being able to grasp the bigger picture, but you're also old enough that there isn't really any going back.

As they say- an unhappy person striving for success still has a dream, but an unhappy person who has achieved success has nothing to look forward to anymore.
