It’s not real. I recorded myself into his rolling stone cover of Misery/This Love. It generally has a really positive response - some people tell me I make it better - but occasionally I get some pathetic, die hard fangirls who think it’s wrong of me to do something like that. As if I’m defiling it. For instance I received a comment tonight telling me to “get my own song.” I can only assume that’s what most if not all the dislikes are about. A bizzare, overprotective jealously for Darren. It’s really quite sad.
However, I have long ago decided that there is no point arguing with these mentally unstable degenerates that seem to stalk YouTube videos to find suitable places to spawn their irrational, self-centred opinions. But I have to vent somewhere and a Tumblr blog is the place for that.
Honestly, it really irritates BECAUSE of my policy to ignore. I so badly want to slap a bitch down. But I know it’s futile. They’ll just fight right back under their delusion and I’ll basically be talking to a brick wall and we’ll just end up with a bitter loathing for one another wishing it never started. And we’ll each blame the other when we’re both at fault - them for posting the comment and me for biting back. I’m obviously writing from experience here.
But here’s where another sensible element of the ignore-it policy comes in. I have to maintain the best reputation I can and get as much positive feedback as possible. I don’t want angry comments made in the heat of argument surfacing later, or dislikes to suddenly pop up on all my videos. I can bitch all I want on here but my YouTube channel is like my “professional” environment.
So, what do I do instead? Just delete the comment. I don’t need to see people’s hate on my videos. Say what you will but if someone doesn’t offer up an actual opinion and just tries to attack me? Bitch, your comment is GONE. Besides, it’s because of hateful ass holes on YouTube that I have a strong sense of my own ability, a resilience to negativity, and confidence in myself.
In a way I should thank the haters. They’ve prepared me for show business. And it’s times like these that you can see how God works all things for good. How trials are necessary and make you a better person if you don’t give in.
