There is no point to this post. I was just having really depressing thoughts regarding the Rebecca/Louis debacle and Tumblr is the place where to let it all out.
Please listen to this while reading.
You all remember the tweets from Louis and Rebecca right?
and you all know that Rebecca is now being sued by Modest Management.
I guess I’ve been just thinking about this a lot today. Sometimes within the world of One Direction everything feels so exclusive and somewhat… unreal?
But Rebecca is not part of this fandom and this phenomenon. She really suffered under the Management. It harmed her. And for Modest to sue her now just shows how volatile the whole situation is. How contracts are a tool of very great power and how artists are just what we can see but that there is so much more going on behind the scenes that we simply don’t know about.
It doesn’t matter who send that text from Louis’ Twitter.
What matters is that Harry, Liam, Niall, Zayn and Louis all signed contracts with Modes Management that are probably very similars to Rebecca and they’re probably treated in a very similar fashion. If not worse since they make more money and appeal to another audience.
This is real life and it’s not funny at all. It’s really harsh and it upsets me a lot that there is nothing I seem to be able to do about it.
(ETA: An attentive Anon send me the link to this which is a report from September 13th from the daily mail going by the title “Ill prove Simon Cowell was wrong to dump me: After winning X-Factor and revealing he was gay, Joe McElderry was brutally dropped - very relevant)
