Remember my ranting about Michelle Phan back in November 2010?
I got a long reply from an ex-phan as well, and I didn't notice it until just now!
"I started to know Michelle Phan in 2007,she was a girl who I feel if I can do something to help her to fulfill her dream to be come a famous makeup artist,I would.
But starting from last April,I was following her on twitter and all she did was bragging and showing off,not just her new expensive clothes,to fancy meals,famous ppl she meet for lunch and dinner,she exagerates everything to make such big deals out of what she bought,ate,wore...I mean,who really cares?From there,I just got sick and tired of her personality and attitude.I said to myself:Gosh,she's only well known on Youtube but behave as she is a Goddess of beauty,while I have seen her in NYC once,she is such a below average for Asian beauty.
I can't tolerate the way she communicate with her fans,she got on the comment section only if she got called out by her fans and starting to debate with them to defend herself,the way she talks to her fans as all of them are her kids,and she is a nasty,non-reason mother.I read her replies to her fans,it made me feel like jumping in the screen to slap on her smart lying mouth until she begs me to stop.
You would be using the wrong words if you ever call ppl her haters only jealous of her...You should remember that so many of her e-fans supporting her to bring her up to where she is now,of course,they loved her or at least I DID.
The reaction of all the websites that calling her out all over the internet now are from DISAPOINTMENT and REGRET that we didn't see how a lousy person that hidden in the girl that they support to make her who she is today.Just imagine if she is anything bigger than just a Youtube guru,what will she be like???
Michelle should follow my advise if she wants stay successful,here is the key for her:
*Eat a big piece of humble pie the moment she wake up every morning.
*Go to beauty school to be licensed before introducing herself as a PRO MUA,and get to lean the real MUA makeup techniques,sanitization,customer service ATTITUDE.
*Stop fighting with supporters,take their words as ideas and thank them for pointing out,without them,she wouldn't see her own mistakes.
*Stop selling her bad products to her dear fans because those harmful things messed up so many young girls' skin.Doesn't Youtube or Lancome pay her enough?
*Keep promises on all the contests she threw,contact winner and send them the rewards.
Stop deleting and blocking her fans,she deleted and block more than half of her subscribers,I want to ask her how in the world she has the full subbies number without buying them from Ebay and get help from many of her fans who even made several fake accounts to subscribe to her channel to help her?
Put quality in her video,hire professional to write a script for her to speak because the ways she uses "big words" is incorrect and fail.
*Acknowledge that Youtube make up tutoring is her full time job,she chose to take this job to support her living so she has to please the bosses:HER VIEWERS.
*Stop preaching about religion because professional ppl don't do that,especially when she doesn't know anything correctly about bible and Jesus.
*Don't post several junk videos that made in a rush just to get her innocent girls to click on them so she gets bigger paychecks (quick money never last)
*Thank her viewers for watching her videos at the end instead of saying GOOD LUCK WITH LEARNING HER CRAPPY MAKEUP TIPS.
I'm not picky,if you think about what I wrote,that's exactly how to be successful in any job you choose in life.Ppl who grasp the quick and easy money never last,if she doesn't follow my advise,I would give her a few more month to be forgotten by her valuable viewers.There are so many licensed gurus who are so skillful on Youtube,Michelle needs to recheck her skills,watch her mouth on things she said because her little girls fanbase will eventually grow up and notice all the nonsense things she told them to do.At the end of the day,what I pointed out in my comment only to help Michelle Phan,am I right?"
Thanks, Casey :) I'm glad we're on the same page. You are very right, every one of your words are true. Michelle Phan is no longer the Michelle Phan we knew back in her Xanga days (according to some people) and look at her now--she easily gets butthurted by the critism some of her fans make, even some of the ex-phans/haters leave behind a little bit of kind words behind and yet they get blocked on twitter/facebook/youtube. It's ridiculous.
One day, all her fans will release how much of a fake she is, and she'll be left with only her boyfriend. According to some people on gurugossip, she just wanted to be with him for money. That kind of makes sense to me.
Also, due to the "expansion" of her channel, I feel like she needed to add more gurus to keep her viewers busy. In reality I think she is just lazy to create videos--plus her makeup tutorials are getting messier!
She posted a note up on facebook (or aka, one of her lame excuses) Here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/#!/notes/michelle-phan/michelle-phan-expansion-20/10150129014223245
I copy and pasted it just in case she probably deletes it, like she did for her apology note to that 16 year old girl incident on twitter:
"As of right now, my channel will now only feature 3 gurus total. Chriselle for fashion, Krista for hair and of course, myself for beauty. I want to expand my channel from not just beauty, but to fashion and hair. I dabble in hair and fashion, but it's not fair for me to give you advice on something I'm not too acquainted with. Rather, I prefer to bring on 2 other beautiful experts in their field to provide high quality tutorials at your disposal. fyi, I'm still editing these tutorials, so you will still have the "Michelle Phan Flavor" :)
(Okay, what the freak, Michelle Phan flavor???!?)
As much as I LOVE creating beauty tutorials, I tend to stretch myself thin when I start to create other tutorials like hair and fashion. I'd rather focus on what I do best, and let Chriselle and Krista bring on their best. I believe in quality, not quantity.
(Haha yeah right, quality? Your makeup videos don't show quality.)
Chriselle is a professional celebrity stylist who has also modeled. I wanted to bring fashion videos to the next level, and I know Chriselle can execute that. Her knowledge exceeds her youthful age. She knows all about dressing a girl to fit her particular body type to even taking a cheap looking sweater and turning it into a Chanel looking piece. She is the true fashion guru because she knows her high end designers, down to the unknown underground designers. Not many youtube gurus can compare to Chriselle's knowledge in fashion because she started off in the real industry at a young age, not online.
(Okay, no offense to Chris, but some of her fashion tutorials are sloppy and messy. The marker on the vintage necklaces look even more cheap than its normal self. The revamp of the shoes are just insane. At least make the flowers on the shoes not so droopy.)
I haven't done a hair tutorial since 2009! I realized, I need a real hair guru for my audience to learn from...this is where Krista comes into place.
Krista is a professional hair stylist. She owns her own salon in Santa Monica (and she's very young). The reason why I chose her to be part of my expansion is because not only is she well educated in her field, but she does lots of charitable works. She volunteers her time for cancer patients who lost their hair during chemo by giving them back their beautiful lush hair with the help of hair extensions. She is not only beautiful on the outside, but her heart outshines her looks. I fell in love with her salon the moment I stepped foot in it. Krista's knowledge in hair is perfect for my audience because she knows all about protecting the hair, treating it, simple prom updos to even elaborate hair styles (that she breaks down so easily). I am so honored to have her on my channel too.
(Krista actually isn't that bad. I like her, I feel like she has a passion for hair-dos and such. She has beautiful, long, and amazing hair. MP's hair is seriously fried up and so unhealthy..)
I can understand that people have mix feelings due to changes, but please trust my instinct, taste and decisions. I have been planning this expansion out for quite a while (it was not an overnight thing trust me). You can't possibly expect me to continue filming with my laptop camera in my bedroom! I have to improve, it's the way of life and it's part of growing. Yes, the "old Michelle" was simple and basic, but if you watch my newer videos, the core is still there. I still keep the same format, it's just embellished more. Yes I'm not the old Michelle, but I have not changed. I just evolved. A butterfly may be beautiful but it's still the same old caterpillar. Ask yourself, 2 years ago, were you any different than you were now?
(THAT'S WRONG. YOU'VE CHANGED into a WHOLE different PERSON.)
I also want to clear up any rumors about me "getting lazy". Expanding my channel is actually more work for me because I have to go out and film these new tutorials (finding the right schedule to film with 2 other people can be difficult), edit them and add my voiceovers. It's not like Krista and Chriselle and handing to me a finished video (I wish because that would be less work for me!). I have to take all the footage home and edit these babies myself. However, even with more videos now, I'm still putting out a regular amount of my own tutorials, look at my January videos for proof! I was away in China for 2 weeks and I was still able to push out 3 makeup videos for the month of January!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I hope this clears up any confusion and I wanted to say thank you again for your immense support, love and of course, your inspiration. It fuels all of us. We are all in this together!
Together we can...
Just a lot of bullshit that's been thought in the head at the last minute?
I think so.
Yeah sure, let the haters hate, but this is a whole different situation.
Fans of Michelle, you've got to realize how bad this situation's getting!
PS: I have a life, I seriously don't rave on how bad MP is everyday.
