Brandy is blogging for Vibe.com and the singer recently wrote about how tough it is to read the many negative comments aimed at her, her friends, and family. Brandy placed a lot of the blame on the blog owners whom she feels purposely look to portray celebrities in a bad light so they can get hits and make more money.
Excerpts from Brandy’s Vibe blog:
People just go too far. Way too far. But people are going to be who they are. As long as I’m not like that, and even if I wasn’t me and I was tweeting about another celebrity, I would never say anything bad about somebody like that. I’m glad that I’m that type of a person.
If I was running the site, I wouldn’t post a bad picture of another person. I just wouldn’t do that. All to make money. For what reason? There are other ways that you can make money. Why do you have to do that at the expense of somebody else? And then the hard part about it is you take a picture of me, I don’t get a piece of that at all. It’s just weird. I just think people should have respect. We have feelings.
It’s real. It affects us. Trust me. It really does. We’re people at the end of the day with feelings. You know we’re sensitive because we’re artists. You know that stuff is going to hurt sometimes. It doesn’t mean we’re not strong.
Brandy is clearly aware of the comments made about her and Kelly Rowland a few weeks back. Both singers showed up for an event in lace front wigs only their mothers could love and indeed the net was on fire with negative comments about them both.
