:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: GET OVER YOURSELF. I love that girl.

In regards to her previous comment that claims the videos have no ads, therefore, the video is not an ad. DOES NOT COMPUTE MICH, DOES NOT COMPUTE. That totally blew over her head, huh? Honestly? I know this would've been more work but I think she should've made a "Why I Left" video and posted a separate video regarding Em Cosmetics.

She has enough money to do what Enya does, and that is to live in her castle in the middle of nowhere with her 3 cats. She can improve on her skills, be it business wise, or artistically, and at her leisure as well, but does she?

Michelle, girl, if you're reading this, realize that flooding the online sphere with asinine sob stories in order to re-establish your Mother Goose status is not doing you any good, either for your soul, or for your talent. Just stop being fake, that's all. Like that episode in Battlestar Galactica where they allowed a news crew behind the scenes, and Kat, one of the Viper pilots had a breakdown. "That's us, warts and all," said Admiral Adama.

You're not perfect looking, so stop trying to make it seem like you are. We're all bent and crooked in one way or another.

She did a video with Promise where she claimed the "why I left" was going to be her last video but with all the support she may come back.. Sure... If you weren't going to come back you wouldn't have made the video after a year or you would titled it better

^She had no personality to begin with, and now after her "comeback" she seems even more dull and detached. And what does she have to offer to the community now? She should've left her channel for good and be done with it.

She said in the video she did with Promise that this video was supposed to be her last video. ...here's hoping. Unless she ups her skills and learns to use more colours other than blue and pink, there isn't much that she can add to the beauty world.

It's such a shame because we had such hopes for her in the beginning. But the fame monster ate her soul and she became a shill. :(

So....I haven't been around here in years, but today MP's "Why I Left" video popped up in my feed.

I was curious to know more about what happened with her, so I read her Teen Vogue article.

You know....the one where she compares herself to Simba from The Lion King.

:(

Oof. Why? I never think about her any more, and I don't hate her. I view people less as villians and more like people who are hurting these days. But....really? Oh, come on. That line about Simba had my thoughts racing right back to the forum, lol.

I hope she's able to surround herself with people who are brave enough to tell her what she needs to hear. And I can easily see how she would succumb to depression (though I'd hope she went beyond the "self-diagnose" part and was responsible enough to find an actual doctor to work with). Depression is awful, no matter who suffers from it.

Wait, which article is that?

It's this one: http://www.teenvogue.com/story/michelle ... -interview

The specific excerpt at the end:
But I made it out. I am not gone, guys. I’m stronger than ever. We all go through this. It’s like the hero’s journey. It’s like The Lion King — Simba went through this, I went through this. You rise, you fall, and then you rise even higher.

If she didn't use these ridiculous childish metaphors, it would be a lot easier to take her seriously.

I don't see anything wrong with using the lion king as a metaphor. It is for teen vogue. Maybe she was trying to find a story that most could relate ( and not religious )

Her forum has been largely inactive and quite boring. RIP

Taken in the context of who she is (a shifty youtuber) I actually thought it was a pretty decent video. I mean, she's been selling out for ages and (talking from experience) old habits die hard. I know what it's like to have a tendency to overproduce, and the habit of marketing yourself can be tough to kill.
But damn, I wonder who this girl calls friends. Friends are there to kick you when you're being stupid and tell you to knock it off.
I'll have to admit, I did get some feels. Reason being, I remember those old videos. I liked the fact she was geeky. I still love rice water. As corny and potentially deceitful this new video was, she's right about one thing: the beginning of YouTube was real.
Also, the critique of "she should have animated her own video" is stupid. It just makes sense to delegate stuff like animation. I do think she should have showed her damn face though.

I wonder if she will ever post again on YouTube. She still does on Instagram, albeit intermittently.

AND, the whole thing about not thinking about money as a kid. There is NO WAY a poor kid wouldn't think about money. Dude, when I was a kid I would freak out when we needed money for school trips (even if it was $2 or something). I wouldn't buy stuff even when I needed it and would be scared to ask my mum for money. If you're poor YOU WILL think about money. The thought is just there, lying behind every decision.

I only just found out that she didn't do the art in the video. Here I was thinking her proportions had improved. I do think that is her style though. Still laughing at the 'do you draw for wikihow comment.'
Couldn't agree with you more!
Michelle, get the fuck over yourself, medical school is no joke. You wouldn't have been accepted in the first place. Get off your high horse and stop playing this smart woman shit.

So. Much. This.

I was paranoid about money starting in grade school. Most people who grew up hell poor are the same way. She's just artistic and unrealistic and spent her days with her head in the clouds....and her dumb ass actually thinks that's a GOOD thing. :roll: :roll: :roll:

There's no way someone as "free spirited" as her could have made it into med school. Even if she did manage to get in, she would have wiped out in the first semester. Guaranteed.

the video just proves that michelle is literally so detached from reality it's insane. :roll: i'm glad she's off youtube and she should stay there!

i love how she genuinely seems to believe that she is some kind of makeup mastermind. :rofl: her makeup "skills" are deplorable. you can even see blur filter effects in her makeup tutorials. i wouldn't even consider her a makeup artist let alone a creative makeup genius.

she also can't draw for shit! i can't imagine any other future career for her. michelle, you've been irrelevant! :tu:

I think its because of all these other successful beauty gurus that she sees with over 5million subscirbers and knowing she’ll never be on that level or even has talent on that level. Thats what depresses her. She used to be at the top and now everyones up there & no one cares about her. Thats why she doesnt want to do it. It was all about ‘following your dream being creative’ when she was #1 on youtube & now she’s stuck. Wtf.

But that's her fault. She decided to leave. She could have easily passed 5 million because the standards for YouTube is so low now. I see people who do sporadic or the same videos over and over (like her protégés LaMadelynn and Karen) and still crossed past 1.5 mill. She was also rich enough to hire people to be the buffer between mean viewers and herself. All she had to do is appear on camera.
