Today, as I was browsing though Twitter, I happen to run across a series of tweets involving Ariana Grande:
She was commenting on a tweet from Justin Bieber, who was trying to spread good cheer like the strange, little elf that he is, which makes this even more strange.
Ariana Grande went on to talk about how bloggers must be “unfulfilled” and how they only look to write about negative things in the world, and never think about people who they criticize who actually create.
Let me tell you something, Grande. I’ve never written a number one hit song, but I’ve written music for most of my life. I’ve never held a stage of thousands of people (on purpose, anyway) but I’ve done my fair share of speaking engagements and collective events.
But one thing that I’ve never worked harder to create is my blog, let alone my company. And for an artist to come along and disrespect what I, as well as countless others, do is just unacceptable.
The reason that we blog is because we care. We care about important stories that are going on in the world around us, and we love finding a different angle on a story.
Just because Ariana Grande doesn’t believe in the way that bloggers work, doesn’t mean that we’re all soulless, gutless people. As a matter of fact, we’re the opposite of that. I, obviously, can’t speak for every blogger out there, but as a majority rule, we’re all working towards a similar goal: to have our work read and enjoyed by others.
Sounds kinda like creating music, huh?
Don’t worry, though. I gave her a whole ration of shit to take with her:
