A Read by Jaybo: Don’t come for my artistry. 

So, I just had a conversation with someone on Facebook who was an acquaintance in high school. The topic was Lady Gaga. He posted an article for the LA times, and it was about her Coachella performance and how it fell kinda flat after the first half. Which is fine, I wasn’t there I can’t say. He’s not a fan of the new Gaga and that’s fine. So, I made a comment just starting conversation about the new Gaga and where she is. Literally just stating my thoughts on what the article said…and this bitch just decided to come for me. And pretty much acted like I had no idea what I was talking about, because “I’m in marketing”. Ugh! I literally studied performance, and I was just talking to another artist about art. 

Then he tried to tell ME that I was just following the gay mainstream. First of all bitch, I’m my own mainstream. Secondly, who the fuck are you to tell me how I feel about things? I almost wanna post his name so y’all can go troll his ass, but I’m gonna keep it cute. But, how dare this,queen come for my fucking artistry. Lady Gaga is an artist who grew up with people telling her she couldn’t do it, or it wasn’t possible. Not to mention she uses such fascinating imagery in her work. She is a true artist. All she wants to do is make her Music and do her thing, which is what we all want to do. 

And people be complaining about how they don’t like her new sound and they’re not fans anymore, well good! Trim the fucking fat because you weren’t a fan in the first place. It’s not like she just dropped the ball and did something horrible, she just did something different. If that something different wasn’t your thing, cool that’s fine. But, I enjoy it because I feel like she had something to say and she finally as an ARTIST said it her way! Yeah, she has some gimmicks, but gimmicks are how you stay in the fucking business. Then this fucker, we’ll call him Derrick Berry, tried to say that her new gimmicks aren’t to his liking…OKAY? You are not her, or her manager, or her PR team. 

Ugh, whatever…I’m just really sick of this trend of Queer men “coming for eachother” and “throwing shade”. Especially these catty ass white Queer men who think it’s “cool” or “cute”; that shit isn’t about being a petty little bitch…in short I unfriended his ass and then he messaged me with this dumbass message : “Awe yay you best me to it on the unfriending good job. Have a great life bro. Accept who you are and quit trying to make your perspective sound special” but, set it so I couldn’t message back. That was kinda douchey to say, but if you ever read this know this:  

You need to grow up. And I hope you do. You said that I was trying too hard to make my perspective special, whatever that means. You just dogged on me and like laughed because I was explaining something passionately, when you’re only real argument was like you were in marketing and could knew about marketing…I’m sorry but are you marketing personally for her? You would even discuss it forreal. And like you said “I’m an artist, too.” But, couldn’t give me anything forreal to back up, artistically, what you were saying. You also, kinda made the assumption that I was some how, slow or dimwitted and or that I was just following some crowd to devalue what I was saying?  A real artist would at least respect another artists opinion and try to see where they’re coming from. You, however, don’t have any respect. You go around toting this whole idea that you’re on a higher plane of existence, but really you use art to hide your insecurities, not explore them. And, i hope some day you do. But, you gotta be,willing to listen and give positive energy to others. Get off your fucking high horse because you’re making a little coin out in West coast, and learn some goddamn respect. Seriously, it’ll make life so much better. I hope life treats you kinder. 

And with that I’m going to bed. Night all!

Live to laugh another day!
