Hi, Nick. I know very well you may not see this, but I just wanted to let you know something. I'd never heard of Ben Hughes before, but I am so, so glad you posted that video. It really touched me in a way nothing ever has. I've been struggling with depression for many years, and recently I've thought a lot about suicide. But seeing someone who's made it through and is a stronger person... I feel like that's just what I needed, to be reminded that I have a whole life in front of me. Thank you.
here's the truth. you're only being nice to gays bc alienating gays will lower your brand, and you will make less money. more generally, you have to be nice to everyone because everyone pays for your lifestyle. however, if we scroll back to your tumblr, to your life, back when you were younger, you were homophobic and a douche. you only changed as you got famous, as u needed people to buy your tickets and subscribe to your videos so you can make money. that's it. you changed bc $$ was at stake.
Really? Show me. Cuz I don’t ever recall a time in my life, famous or not famous, when I was ever homophobic. I’ve always had gay friends. Helloooo Long Beach is the #3 gay populated city in the US.
There was even one time we were all in a van after a show… it was me, Andrew, Lil Crazed, JRA, and Joey Diamond. We were all asking Joey which one of us he would smash first if we were gay. He wouldnt answer. He too pretty for us.
Thanks for telling me the truth about myself though. It’s getting late over here in Amsterdam and I needed a fairytale before bed.
Do you still remember Rebecca Black? That “Friday" song? That one said to be the worst song ever? I’m sure you do.
My interest in her ended with the end of that song. I never looked what’s up, what she does, I didn’t care. So when today I saw Soundlyawake’s tweet saying - “Obsessed with @justcallmerebecca (@msrebeccablack)’s new song, #Saturday. Go buy it!!” - all I said to myself was - “nope”.
But then I saw that same statement here on Tumblr and on Instagram, I decided to check, what stupid song this time she sung and… OK I didn’t think, I would say that but… that new song isn’t bad at all and Rebecca isn’t bad singer.
Just at the beginning of that song, lyrics are “Trying get Friday out of my head” and thought sparkled in my head: what if she also don’t like her first song? Then I’ve noticed the video to “Saturday” is at her channel, so I clicked and… I was amazed to discover, she IS A YOUTUBER, AN ACTIVE YOUTUBER!!
So I watched few of her videos and I must say I misjudged her. She’s rather nice, logic girl with good sense of humour and talent of talking. A girl who at the age of 13 had to deal with lots of shit.
