Is Kimmaytube balling out of control?

hotchocolatehotchocolate Posts: 59Registered Users
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.
    Whoop whoop! :hello1:

    :shock:

    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 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.

    As for Kimmaytube, I'm not a huge fan, but I also can admire anyone who makes something for themselves and can find success due to their own effort and merit. So, she betta do tha damn thang.

    Still though, I ain't gonna be buying any of her things. That's just me though. LOL:tongue10:

    I read somewhere that their hair color was only supposed to change when they transformed but it never worked out that way. They made a live action version (it's terrible by the way) where they wore wigs after they transformed. I guess that was the original intent. :albino:

    okay FIRST OFF, LMBO @ all of these gifs!! #Foolery (can I "#" on NC?)
    Anyway, I actually like Kimmaytube...she inspires and educates...I was a little discouraged while transitioning until watching her videos...and I showed a few friends her channel and they became interested in becoming natural as well...although I really haven't watched any of her new videos since she straightened her hair (I am addicted to the flat iron so that isn't something I needed to see! lol)...what's the drama with her channel tho? Am I missing something?
