Default Is Kimmaytube balling out of control?

They did a write up on her in the New York Daily News! She's getting ready to come out with her own hair care line. I she's the new Oprah for hair care
they said anything she recommends flys off the shelf, and recommended Chicorro's book, and it becames a New York Times Bestseller or something.

How can you act so bad, and have such good luck?

What does she do that's so bad? I don't watch her, just heard of her.

You're exaggerating. Chicoro's book was number one in the beauty books on Amazon following Kim's review. The products didn't fly off the shelves. The article stated that where she lived kinky curly sold better because her recommendation in her leave-in concoction. A lot of youtubers, after becoming relatively well-known, launch their own product lines. Black oynxx is an example. She seems like your standard upper middle class woman to me. No need to make such a huge deal about.
I do, however, wish her success because her videos are helpful, even though her voice can be annoying. She tends to over enunciate and some take that as condescending, but she has foreign viewers as well so I guess that's why.

How is she acting bad? Anyway, I saw the article (made a thread about it too btw) and I can't throw no shade. I think her success has been awesome. Her attitude may not rub everyone the right way but the proof is in the pudding and the paper so kudos to kimmaytube. She's successful, doing big things. Don't hate, congratulate

ETA: Actually, you don't have to congratulate if you don't want to.

I actually speak that way sometimes. I had a lisp as a child (did speech therapy) and now my MS sometimes makes it hard to speak clearly so I tend to enunciate as clear as possible especially when I'm speaking in public. It might look like I'm overdoing it to some people, but that's how I speak. I've only watched her leave in video, but I know what you mean.

I know you're talking about KT, but it a sensitive subject for me sometimes.

Carry on!

I get you. I had a lisp too until I got braces. I also have a strong southern accent that escapes me sometimes.

I haven't watched her videos since the drama going on with her and the other two youtubers (haven't watched theirs either ) but I watched one of her weekend shows a couple of weeks ago and it was really nice. It seemed much more laid back. Anyway, I think she puts in a lot of hard work on her videos and her website so I wish her nothing but success. I think it's deserved.

yea, I'm not a huge fan. Her vids are cool, just not my forte. I do wish her luck though. She is finding good success. I love it! If she didn't know what she was doing and giving out bad info, than I would say boo but she's not and she's doing her "thang".

I love the pics they are great!!

As for KT, I don't get it but I am not a youtube subscriber so I guess I am missing something. Anyway I am not mad at her for doing her own product line heck it seems like lots of people have one why not her. I am just glad to see so many ethnic women making ethnic products.

"In the name of the Moon, I will... PUNISH YOU!!"

Now I know this is WAY of topic but.... I never understood how some of the villains couldnt figure out the identity of the sailor scouts.

I mean, for real though? One minute she's in her school uniform, another she's in her sailor scout outfit. Here's a hint: HER FACE IS NOT COVERED

Okay okay Im done.
