I don’t necessarily have a problem with lip syncing, as long as the person owns up to it. I have no idea why Selena chose not to sing live at the Jingle Ball, but I’m sure she was super pissed about everything that went wrong that night. First of all, no singer wants to get caught lip syncing. Secondly, every performer wants a smooth sailing performance. So if it were you, wouldn’t you be pissed too? Also, I really do think that she may not have realized that the crowd could hear her, when she let out the F bomb. I don’t think that she would intentionally let her fans hear her talk like that. And because she was lip syncing, she probably thought that her microphone was turned off. I don’t blame Selena for reacting the way that she did. Is it unfortunate that she was caught and heard losing her composure like that? Yes, and I hate that any of her “littles” that night might’ve heard her talk like that. But we’re all human, and we all have our moments.
The more I read New York magazine’s Joe Jonas: My Life as a Jonas Brother, the more I don’t understand why he was telling us all of this. What’s the point in sharing to the public, personal events that took place in your life when you don’t have to? When more importantly, it’s none of our business? It makes me think that he’s either in it for the attention, or he was in need for a pretty large paycheck. He had to have known that putting all of that out there to the public would have started up a huge commotion. He has EVERYBODY talking about him now, and I’m sure that’s what he wanted. The Jonas Brothers are no more, so I’m sure deep inside he felt a little desperate to keep his name out there. Also, some friend Joe is for throwing Demi and Miley under the bus like that, when he spoke of drug use. Honestly, that was not necessary. I feel like all he’s doing is trying to find somebody to blame for all of his mistakes that he made, and that’s not what he should be doing. I personally feel that Disney Channel is not to blame for all of these former Disney kids going out of control. Disney has no control over you, you have a right to say no to them if you feel the need to. Like Dylan Sprouse said. YOU guys chose to follow along with Disney, and be their little puppets. You chose that. Look at how many Disney stars didn’t go down the wrong path? Like Hilary Duff, Ashley Tisdale, Raven Symone, Dylan and Cole Sprouse, etc. And they were all part of Disney. Everybody has their own personal struggles, and it’s all about who you surround yourself with and if you are feeling a certain way, then it’s important to reach out to somebody and talk about the problems that you’re having. You have over 5 amazing studio albums out, movies that are enjoyable to watch, you’ve got to travel the world, meet amazing people and gain millions of fans all around the world who admire you and love you, and that is all because of Disney, because they saw something in the three of you. So to go and blame them, and bash them is just so inappropriate and so low class. No, the company may not be perfect and they may have their faults, but the Jonas Brothers would be nothing if it weren’t for Disney. Be grateful for the opportunities. I don’t respect this kind of honesty.
Making someone with social anxiety talk in front of a class, is like asking someone with a broken leg to go run a mile. Except, one is acceptable and the other is considered wrong. Something obviously needs to change.
