Beckii talks about her memories of being an idol in Japan, including that she stayed in all the most expensive hotels and got whatever she asked for.
I still can't believe she ever got famous.
She complained that her manager didn't tell her anything, just carted her off from gig to gig, and that she didn't trust him.
I still remember that failure of a music video she tried to put out targeted toward the UK ("You Can't Kiss Me" with those "bodyguards" and that awful blond wig), kek.
I feel like part of her appeal to nips was how casual and weeby her videos were. It was sweet and innocent and she was like 14. Now she's grown up a bit and her videos have a different, somewhat more polished style. Plus, no offense, but I don't think she can really compete with other white models in Japan. She doesn't really fit the "look" they generally go for (light blond hair, big doe eyes, small nose, that whole "ethereal gaijin!!!!" shebang).
I doubt she'll ever get famous in Japan again, tbh. She can definitely do the whole Rachel and Jun thing if she marries a Japanese guy, though.
But clearly its not about her looks or she wouldn't have had that initial sudden fame to begin with. Not all idols or celebs in Japan are what is considered attractive. I do think that she was badly advised most likely by her parents.
She had more than enough of a following to become somewhat known. She was the first gaijin to do akiba idol activities in Japan and it was right after a small para para boom so dancing idols were really popular. That's where her and dakota are different. Dakota may not be 100% honest but she does know how to sell herself.
Poor beckii. Her decline is so sad and she tries to live in the past.
yeah to be honest she seems like a genuine girl and I quite like her sense of humour. I don't think she's ugly either. You'e such bitches here tbth.
I don't really blame her for apparently "clinging" to fame. she seems grateful for the whole experience and even then she seemed to know it was probably fleeing.
I don't think we even know enough to comment on whether her manager was actually fucking her over or not.
I hope she gets her eventual goal of a japanese style girls magazine tho. I'd be so into that
but all that said how can she be friends with Abi who is obviously such a cunt. That does make me wonder>>140042
From her vlogs and such he seems like an absolute asshole too
It won't happen anon. She doesn't fit the market for any of the modelling over there. Unless she has the money to pay her way in like Himezawa. Won't happen.
Becks is done for key
Kek do you guys think any cute/young girl who sings on stage is an "akiba" idol? You can just say idol as a good term. Akiba idol has way different connotations and becki don't fit those>Dakota knows how to sell herself
Again, becki was 14. In Japan she has literally no option but to be pedobait if she wanted the big money. Dakota was a 20 year old caniving wolf, so obviously they would be marketed different. Most idols don't last more than a year. That's show biz. Dakota is not even famous in Japan, and gaijin or not talents don't last for long.
Unless you're a poor fag 50k isn't that much money. It's not enough to buy a house, and it can last you a year or two. She made that company half a million dollars, she should have least gotten 100,000. And that's after they hired translators and paid for her flights. Becki only went viral and can't speak Japanese , so it's not like she was going to last long anyways. She at least got a live able YT career out of it.>>140382
I don't think she was sexualised that much especially seeing way more graphic things of way younger girls in Japan which are legal. But I guess it was shocking for becki as a Brit. And I don't care when other cows sexualise themselves unless it's cringey. Why is being prude suddenly admirable kek
Personally I believe that the documentary was cut to really play that up. I think it's understandable that her parents wanted her to do well by it all.
she may have been uncomfortable with the older fan thing, but i guss she just saw it as a necessary part of this amazing experience.
lets be real. we know how shady the idol industry is. I fully believe she was being fucked over
I know I'm on lolcow but I think a lot of the beckii hate is pure reaching and maybe even a little residual envy of what she got to do as a young girl of no particular talent
I know I was jealous as hell but I was never a cunt about it.
"She always seems to use others to get seen"
like taylor r
sparkles? that's hardly insider knowledge. i don't think she ever outwardly said but that's understandable. Anyone who watches her videos could see it was pretty obvious so it isn't like she went out of her way to hide it either
she has definitely mentioned another sort of relationship she had at a younger age and I think she's possibly hinted at her and sparkles dating on tumblr.
You mean Beckii?
She isn't from Blackpool. She is from the Isle of Mann
she literally just made a tumblr post about it.
i’ve had a serious long term relationship and it sadly came to a close which was hard enough as it was without having to share it with the world :( I know i am not incredibly popular and I don’t mean to sound bigheaded when i say ‘the public eye’ but it’s true - random people would Care, you included! it probably would go as above idk it’s hard to tell how the future goes. I think if I actually moved in with a partner it would be quite clear but who knows! I don’t think it’s dishonest, I don’t think you are just fans at all I think we have a nice lil community that is very 2 way. and of course i am incredibly grateful for anyone who follows/watches etc anything I do, it’s very true I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without you. So I understand what you mean. however idk I just don’t really feel comfortable sharing that aspect of my life at the moment. and there isn’t anything to report right now anyway! it will probably change at some point for sure, but we’ll see! Also my pure profit from patreon is not 1k freely handed out, there are costs involved with running it how I do it, and I work very hard to make the rewards really good! please don’t think i get 1k a month for nothing, it is not near that number and there is a clear exchange. i am very grateful and I try and express that as much as I can!
