Michelle Phan or Michelle Phail?

Dear readers,

I must've been way behind news because apparently Michelle Phan is being put down by her haters constantly, I thought it'd be something that wouldn't last for a long time but I was wrong.

I started following Michelle Phan since the Summer of 2010 through a friend of mines. I would always wait for her videos to come out every couple of weeks or so and enjoy watching her videos for fun.
A couple of nights ago after coming back from Vegas, I actually read the comments to one of her recent videos (her Thai video?) and there was a couple of comments that caught my eye. I looked up "Mr. Bun Bun Cover-up", "Michelle Phan not gamer girl" on Google.

I was so shocked to see the following quotes I have gotten from forums.
According to some person on GuruGossip; "she used to be so passionate, passionate about living a humble life. She had post after post about how she felt so sadden by the world filled with greedy people who were so materialistic. She even said she prayed for their souls. I really wished she didn't delete these posts, this was back during 2005-2006. She used to always say people don't need material things when there is world hunger and poverty, that is an exact quote too. Now she goes and buy 1200 dollar jacket could have fed a whole village in Africa for a year!

this was her exact quote a few years ago on Xanga:

""a crazy girl gamer who shows tutorials on painting, drawing and being happy without the aid of expensive materials that fabricate our daily lives!"

Now after seeing the person she used to be, to the person she is now. Who would not hate on her?? She is one of those people that she use to despise. Even if she goes and buys all these fancy things and be wasteful, it is ok, she should be more humble and not brag about it. It shows that deep down she still an insecure person because shes constantly worried that people don't know how successful she is, which is why takes every opportunity to brag."
I've never been this disappointed in such a talented makeup artist. Her bunny, Mr. Bun Bun apparently passed away and the next day she went to Disneyworld. Phan misled her fans and haters into thinking that Mr. Bun Bun was alright and recovering. In reality, she hid the news of her own bunny's death and thinking she'd get away with this, the netizens caught her lieing big time.

Take a look at that. I've been blown out of my mind reading this whole blog.

Here's another quote from GuruGossip:

"I didn't know Lancome still tested on animals...that's so dumb too. How is pouring shit on a rabbit going to tell you whether it will harm a human or not? A lot of the time animal testing isn't even accurate because...well we're not freaking rabbits. Drugs that have been found to be effective for rats were not effective for humans. It literally makes no sense to me, besides it being cruel. Anyway I don't think it's that bad that she agreed to work for them, but it is hypocritical that she accepted knowing they test on animals and always acts like she loves animals. I love animals, and I will not buy from Lancome (actually never have cuz that shit is too expensive :p)

Well since this is the general Michelle Phan thread, I will just complain a bit. I wanted to put this in the "rave about a guru" thread for MP, but I figured I will just put it here since other people who actually like her will get annoyed if I say it there.

I dislike Michelle Phan because people have been making stupid ass comparisons between me and her lately on makeup alley. Okay that's not the only reason! Well, I put an FOTD there with like a plum smoky eye using my MAC blush in dirty plum as an eyeshadow. So one girl was like, "ooh that's cool...looks like MP's Time Burton look!" I was like nooooo don't compare my look to that. Because (since I hadn't been subscribed to her in almost two years) I hadn't seen it, so how would I know she made something similar? Anyway that one just burned lol. I know she was trying to say something nice, but most people would agree that wasn't nice at all Sad

Anyway, I had been wanting to make videos for a long time, as I noticed there was a deficit in cute Pokemon/anime looks (yes people do Pokemon looks, but they make themselves look like them. I think that's weird...IMO you should take inspiration from stuff, like color usage. Not make yourself look like a Pikachu! but that's beside the point.)

Well my friend was like, "man you guys seem similar. Both Asian girls who like anime/manga and shit." So what? A lot of people like anime! Anyway, I think I am just mostly annoyed because she gives us normal Asian girls a bad name. Now it's like, we're all freaking slutty dumb girls who don't even go to school and date people almost ten years older than us. Well I am not like that. And I used to be a fan of hers! Back when she seemed nice. But now I'm thinking that she was never nice before and just hid it better back then. anyway sorry guys I am just pissed at her. Pissed at her for being a terrible role model to young girls, and teaching them to value expensive everything, and block and delete everyone who stands in her way. It's ridiculous! If any one you have heard of or read/watched Death Note, think how scary it would be if a death note fell into MP's hands! I bet she would kill off all her "haters" aka normal people who dislike her. Sorry rant over now. sigh just so disappointed really."

What's gotten into her?
I've only watched her videos just for the fun of it, I didn't think there'd actually be young girls watching the videos and actually wearing the makeup in public. It scares me. Maybe she really isn't a good role model as I thought she would be after reading the blogs and threads that talked about Phan.

And where does she get these ideas?
All this time I thought she was creative and actually using her imagination.
Apparently not:
(Zoom to look closer to it)

I really don't have much to argue about this, but if you're "spicing" up someone else's ideas, at least give whoever made that idea in the first place some credit?

Now this really got me heated:

On the second picture, Phan said insulting things about skinny girls.

I, myself, am pretty skinny as hell. I am NOT going through anorexia or any of those eating disorders. It's natural for me to be really skinny, and reading this just got me way more than being heated.

"Now I really cannot stand you. I don’t understand why someone would use a facade like yours for any purpose. You are not good at maintaining your image and you outright lie to people who admire you. Your conduct is also quite appalling; from bragging photos to twitter wars with minors, how can you stand yourself? How can you mess around with the people who follow you, support you and admire you? I don’t understand people like you, people who deceive and prey on those who trust them."


I feel you, Ex-Phan.
