So, I finally got the chance to sit down and watch the last few episodes of “Making the Band 4” on MTV. I had heard a lot of stuff about the demise of Danity Kane and the removal of Aubrey and D.Woods from the group but I didn’t really understand why.
Basically, Diddy took the problems the group was dealing with, oversimplified and demeaned it and then expected them to take kindly to him cutting two of the five members.
When he asked Aubrey to give him some “true talk” and explain what the problem was - he freaked. She explained that a big issue was trust and the lackthereof in the group. Specifically, she pointed out issues like “second guessing and miscommunication” in the sense that there was talk about certain members of the group getting asked to do demo tapes with Diddy, etc. Her only request, as a way to suggest a way to make the group come closer to a resolution was to increase the communication.
Diddy, who didn’t even let her finish, exclaimed that “Diddy doesn’t need to call Aubrey everytime he wants to do something with his album”. That was not even what she meant. When it concerns the group, of even just a member of it, it should be communicated to them. His response continued and he outted her and her “clique” member, D.Woods.
I feel like Diddy’s biggest downfall will be himself. I feel that he thinks he has “made it” and that he can do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. He doesn’t realize that fans make up his empire and by treating them like crap, destroying something with an established following or just acting like “this isn’t Diddy’s fault”, he is only hurting himself. His pompous attitude, his sense of “well, I’ve made it” and his unnecessary projection of opinions on people he talks to is all the more reason that his failure will be attributed to himself. His schrewd management style is good…to a point… but there is a line he is crossing with every extra dollar he makes.
For some reason, I can’t stop writing things down. I’m SO bored and this week is really crawling by.
I’m so excited for Friday! It’s going to be an awesome day for so many reasons, especially the iPhone 3G release. Tomorrow I might go visit my grandparents in Dix Hills to get out of the house for a little.
My mom freaked out a little before, she does that from time to time and anyway, she was mean and slammed the door. I’m not sure what I did but it was related to the things I don’t do, like I forgot to take the garbage pale in or something. She has this tendency to notice things a normal person would just get mad on the spot and store them up.
For example, I had a spoon on my nightstand. I’m not sure why but for some reason I forgot to bring it down. So TWO WEEKS later, I forgot to do something she asked for college and after she finished being mad about that.. “AND THAT SPOON. IT’S BEEN SITTING HERE FOR…”. It’s kind of funny actually.
I’m trying to find some music that fits my mood, it’s kind of hard because I’m feeling a lot of things.
Okay, this is really beginning to bother me. Everyone I know that has an iPod touch calls it an “iTouch”. I’m not sure why it bugs me so much but it’s one of those things that caught on because it’s easy to say but it’s not at all correct. If you were a company and called it an iTouch, Apple can sue you.
There was an article on Macrumors about it and that’s what prompted me to think about it. So if you’re a friend of mine and you call it an iTouch, you are a terrible person.
